I just received this email from Poker Rebel:

Hello sweetheart!

Rule number two: We do NOT tolerate offensive or abusive behaviour in any way.

More rules to come…

Obey, or you'll hear from me again!

Tom Durango

Drill Sergeant
Support is available 24/7. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you ever have.
========================================================

First of all I never played there! I don't have account there and never installed their software! For the first time in my life I hear about this poker site! WTF is this???

I am just wondering is it possible the poker sites to buy our peronal details from another poker sites like emails for example and to have more clients Confused Or may be this is a mistake Confused But what kind of mistake is that?

For the first time I hear a poker site calling his customers "sweetheart"

What do you think about all this Confused Question

I've never heard about this poker site.

If you want you might contact them asking why you received the e-mail. However, If I were you I just deleted the e-mail, especially if some guy named Tom Durango is calling you sweetheart Big Smile Tongue

I made a Google research about this site and I found it is a brand new site, made mostly for Canadian and US players. But look what I found:

Posted by SWISStoons, a member of another poker forum

“I just joined this room a couple days ago. You're given ten free dollars to play with and the competition is very very weak. That's the good news. But the interface is quirky. I've never seen anything like it. In a showdown, no one's hole cards are exposed til all the board cards have been dealt. And if you lose the showdown, you can't even see what beat you because you are immediately...and I mean immediately...whisked away from the table.”
===================================================

Very strange! I red their T&C and I found that they are HIDING who they are. They don't have any info like the name of their company, which software they use, they don't explain where they got a license to operate, they don't explain to which jurisdiction they belong.

For example PokerStars, you can find at their site that they are Rational Group Enterprises Limited and they belong to Isle Of Man Jurisdiction, but Poker Rebel there is NOT any info about anything.

I think the email which I received is somekind of advertisement may be Question So, guys be careful about this site. From what I red from other poker forums, they said it is NOT safe to deposit there.

Simply, don't trust them!!!

Thanks for the heads up, Peter! To me it looks like an online ad email but it seems someone sold the email database of more players since you never registered there...

Right from the start that is bad promo buisness to my eyes, so that would be a strong reason itself not to play there.

Exactly, I am thinking the same. Probably online poker operators sell email database to other online poker operators. I think that they sell those emails of "sleeping accounts" where there is no activity. For example I have many poker accounts at many poker rooms, but I have only three active accounts: PokerStars, FullTilt Poker and Poker Heaven.

All other occounts at the other poker rooms which I have are "sleeping accounts". I don't play at many poker rooms, because of the new gambling laws here in Bulgaria and it is not allowed. All the bulgarian accounts of many players from many poker rooms are banned. Probably the online operators sell those emails of "sleeping non active accounts" to other online operators.

This is the only logical explanation which I found Confused

Lol drill Sergeant Big Smile The best way is to ignorate this mail and delete it. It Looks like a junk mail. A other guy can use the same username, but not the same email adress.

I've never heard of this Poker Site and i would be wary of opening any of these E-mails. I would just ignore this and delete it. I would think it is just junk mail and should be treated like any other junk mail and bin it Smile

Looks like spam. Its not the first time though im hearing for something like this.
Not from the specific poker site, but it happens.
I have got emails from poker sites with my name on it offering me deposit bonuses.
And i never had an account with them.

Almost immediately after I started playing online poker I started getting loads and loads of emails from Casinos. I automatically assumed that my details appeared on a list somewhere although I have no idea how it got there.

While I was typing the above I remembered that early on I joined one of those 'We'll send you a daily/weekly/monthly newsletter with loads of poker deals and tips'. Can't remember now what it was called but it seems to me that they would be far more likely to sell my details than one of the reputable sites.

Never had one from a poker site that I didn't register at though.

Very mysterious. Confused

Henry, I receive loads of casino emails as well. That is the first time I receive an email from a poker site where I am not registered. But all these casino advertisements, oferring $1000 no deposit bonus, is terrible. Every day I click unsubscribe and I still receive casino emails. I don't know how that happen, but it is obviously that somebody gave our email info to those casino sites. My be some affiliate sites who have many offers for poker and casino sites and they have many members as well........who knows Confused I am just guessing.
