    Just like last week when I harped on Affactive... only now I am getting spam to my All Star Slots player account. This one was also a specific email. :(

    The email goes to Gold VIP, which is pretty much known as a place spammers like to send their traffic.. but the question to Affiliate Edge.. How the hell did they get my email??? It's never been used except when I set up my account on All Star Slots casino.

    Hi all, this is very concerning to me.

    Andy, please can you send me a copy of the email and the email address used and I'll get our tech guys on it as a matter of urgency.

    Cheers,

    Martyn

    I also have received spam to an account only used for BuzzLuck.
    This email address was created for, and only used for signing up at BuzzLuck Casino.
    It was soliciting Gold VIP Club Casino xxxgvcvip.com

    I believe i received the same email in the last 2 days

    maria@behaverelease.com & win@stockero.com were the emails i received them from both leading to GVC

    The only difference is the only 2 casino's to have my email address are Inetbet & Jackpot capital so maybe
    its not only CWCs problem but RTGs Problem

    This issues just 'died' :( What happened, Martyn? Where did the leak come in? I am still receiving tons of spam on my CWC Casino Player account emails.

    I've had no confirmation on this.

    What casinos are being pushed in your emails currently?

    No - they are promoting other brands... but using my email accounts that are SPECIFIC to those casinos. They couldn't have gotten the email from anywhere else because they are from those casino. I.e., Player email: lrandy@xxx.com (for Lucky Red), allstarslots@xxx.com (for All Star Slots), etc...

    Not sure why it matters, but..... Some of the usual suspects and some new:

    * Gold VIP Club (usual spammer's haven)
    * Loco Panda (new spam)
    * Grand Parker Casino (new spam)


    I'm sure I could find more had I not deleted.. these are within the last 2 weeks.

    I read somewhere that Revenue Jet was launched by ex-Affactive people. If true, the connection to Gold VIP is not really far away.

    Taken from the nature of the responces so far, it would seem highly likely that they are fed into some RTG database that all casinos have access to. If that's the case, that's a huge issue! RTG casinos have a huge degree of variation in the quality of the operations using their software.

    I don't even care if it's RTG's fault... we just need to KNOW. I won't promote casinos where my email address is leaked until I know HOW it was leaked.

    I think this is a huge blight on Affiliate Edge at this point.
