    Seems that AGD could have some recourse on them for not removing the certification. They are using your images without permission.

    I am in the negative this month with them. Once I see black figures I will let you know if I have been paid.

    Because they have not taken it down even after the request to do so. We are not happy about it either.

    Andy - why not try a cease in desist. And then maybe even a DCMA report to Google? Not sure if you can pull this off with a simple image but it IS your trademark and they abusing it.

    Well this program was the catalyst for me. I finally got around my programming issue (called laziness) and created a new "type" of casinos called "rogue (blacklisted) casinos" and now I have a whole section for these casinos!

    Thanks for helping me over my hump RHR. You can be the first to view it: Online Rogue (blacklisted) Casinos

    I am open to advice on how to make the page look more menacing .... any ideas? Although the casinos are still listed on my site to retain their position, and still contain the review of the casino, no outbound links work - they all point to the same rogue casino page.

    I have added links to AGD, 5STAR, CHOICE, G&C, GPWA, and TREASURE CHEST.... (please reciprocate) and please contact me if your page has not been linked to.

    I think it looks excellent!

    RHR should be taking down the AGD logo soon as well.

    Did you have any interaction with them or did they just finally take it down? No signs of remorse or future payments in sight? :(

    I just visited their home page. It's really sickening that they leave the affiliate program up. Offer all this stuff and it's a total #$@ lie. Isn't there something we can do about that? Complain to their host that they are running a scam, etc? because at this point its a basic internet scam. gambling or not.


    Edited to add: following Engineer's lead and BB1's motivation on doing more to rank on individual pages, please - anyone who has rogue pages for Sierra Star BLACKLISTED, Royal Dice BLACKLISTED and Nuts Poker BLACKLISTED, please link to my pages, and alert me, so I may link back to yours.

    Nope. No dialog outside of 'please remove our banner'. I was just happy/surprised that was done.

    I'll see if I can followup with more questions about affiliate payments.

    Hi all,

    I'm unclear: is the decision to begin a full out blacklist / warning campaign on for this bunch.

    I've never listed them but have no problem putting up some rogue pages. I usually don't rank lol, but perhaps by creating my pages and then linking to you guys .. its helping.

    Yes, these guys are in the Rogue house here at AGD. We have them blacklisted at our site and many others. Many people (affs) have not been paid and we are just getting the run-around. However they are still have an affiliate site (thus promising commissions to people for promoting sites, but no one will get paid)

    These folks should not get our customers business, because if they'll do it to us.... they certainly could do it to the players just as easily. I'd appreciate your efforts very much. - Thanks, B
