Game-Protect.com is an affiliate portal that also claims to protect players from being scammed.

For months the owner, game-protect, has been trying to dupe members of this forum into visiting his website by posting deceptive hyper links.  It's getting old reporting them, warning people about it and seeing him still doing it.  I originally posted this in Scam Accusations, but then thought Meta would be more appropriate...not really sure though. Am I just wasting my time, or is this something that mods think is worthy of protecting users from?  

A couple examples:

How much did you win?

You can report your case using Report Issue.

You can read in the comment section here Curacao licensing scam operators how Marg lost 250000 AUD within a few months, even though her account was already closed for excessive gambling.

sportsbet.io is the closet thing to direcbet (with regards to 24/7 action)
The publicly proven Sportsbet scam let everyone in (deposit) and then selectively demands KYC procedure when you want to withdraw! There are also several scam accusations where this happened.

The closest thing to Directbet is clearly NitrogenSports

And if you take a look at the Crypto Sports Betting sites with consumer protection service , you might will find other interesting candidates.

This really shouldn't have anything to with whether or not you think game-protect is an honest or dishonest site/service/person , so hopefully that sort of discussion doesn't derail this thread.

I think the safest place to play poker using cryptocurrencies is BetKing, because they have a VIP area for blinds above 1/2 mBTC.

This is NOT a link to BetKing.  Do not click on it.  It's a link to game-protects personal website.
TwitchySeal himself habitually reads on the Game Protect website, makes screenshots and post it here on bitcointalk. But at the same time advises other players not to visit the website and gain advantage of its content and service!

How do you call his behavior? Schizophrenic?

game-protect, has been trying to dupe members of this forum into visiting his website by posting deceptive hyper links.  

The issue is not even necessarily about tricking members into clicking on his links. When links are posted around here, the google search results rankings will improve because of the large number of other sites that link back to bitcointalk.org. So when this guy's links are spammed around here, his search result rankings will improve, and they will improve for search terms associated with the titles of the threads he spams his links in.

These posts are not adding any real value to the discussions, and is little more than back-link spam.

Kind Regards

To piggyback offof the title of this thread, people also use deceptive hyperlinks with youtube.

You think they're linking a youtube video, but they actually are getting money from ads on the youtube video. So it's spam but you don't realize it.

Well fuck me if this is allowed on this forum:

XarXymtroa, one of your Sportsbet scam promoters claims that your other scam site has already more than 100 Bitcoin fraudulent results! Cheesy

Supposedly before you start playing you should see people review about their site, already more than 100 bitcoin they have fraudulent results of people.
There are still many good gambling sites, you can see reviews using google search engine if you know it.
You can contact them about your complaint but I am not sure you will get a good response or you will not get a response.


sorry sir, i have to leave this campaign
Why?

You are aware about the publicly proven Bitcasino scam, but nevertheless promote their other Sportsbet scam site?

This is very much a work-in-progress. We've been incredibly busy with happenings on our websites, our goal isn't to start some sort of monopoly we're really just a group of likeminded individuals who think traditional online casinos are scams and want to do things differently. I don't want this initiative to morph into a for-profit thing (askgamblers), finding a trustee would be difficult but I like the idea. Right now though if we were to do anything controversial it would only be do-able by vote of all the members but as things stand the CGF is here for educational purposes at this point in time and we (PD/stake) cover all expenses for videos/articles etc. We get a ton of emails from people who want to join and we've set the bar at 1+ year of solid operation & significant volume (top 20 crypto casino).
If you want to educate the community on your expenses, why do you not inform about the Curacao license scam 1668/JAZ, sub-licenses have no legal basis! you are financing with 10000s of Euro every year?

PD had been License free since 2013, and has taken more BTC betting volume than any Bitcoin gambling website that discloses stats with no issues.
You have stats of how much Bitcoin you have illegally taken? 5 Years is exactly the time frame players can demand their losses back. Smiley


The curacao license is something that costs near $0 and the reason we obtained it is so we can use google adwords and other advertising networks that require a "license" not to trick players into trusting us.
With a Costa Rica license you can not use google adwords and other advertising networks?

I never said that you pay for a fake license to trick players into trusting you.


Curacao license is indeed one of the easiest ones to obtain because Malta, UK, and other jurisdictions require RNG testing and guess what, Provably fair is not "RNG" it's deterministic.
It is easy to obtain because it is no juridical valid license! Should be easy to understand. Wink


As much as you think there is some major conspiracy behind the curacao licenses, all you have is a theory you don't have any actual proof.
Game Protect has proof that your claim to operate under the 1668/JAZ license has no legal basis. It is explained here Curacao license scam 1668/JAZ, sub-licenses have no legal basis! and I already gave you the link.

Let me know which part you did not understand?

Have you seen the 1668/JAZ license you claim to operate under? Have you seen the sub-license contract?


Regardless of this entire fact, I can't see why you'd try and pick a fight with us or insist that we are no longer legitimate now because we picked up a license.
I missed the fact, can you please quote it?

Neither do I fight with you nor did I say that you are now no longer legitimate because you picked a license.

I inform that you finance organized crime with 10000s Euro every year!

If I wanted to fight with you, I would offer a 100% cashback assistance for the past 5 years for primedice and stake.


If you have a beef it should be with the licensors not the 1000s of casinos that have obtained this license for various reasons.
No, you and all the other casinos finance organized crime that killed the politician leader Helmin Wiels in Curacao!

If the casinos would not pay for a fake license, the licensors would have no business, simple.


This primarily feels like just a push towards self promotion for your own affiliation, if you want me to take your opinion seriously remove all the affiliate links from your website and PM me serious proof of your accusations against curacao egaming not just random circumstantial anecdotes.
Game Protect will neither stop offering to Qualify cost free for our online gaming consumer protection service nor send you the hard proof that those sub-licenses have no legal basis.

The hard proof that those sub-licenses have no legal basis is worth $100,000s as I can offer a 100% cashback assistance for any of the 1000s casinos.

We can make it unlike easier: If you operate under the 1668/JAZ license, show us your authorization?


The truth about gaming licenses is the legal basis of a gaming license pertains to that specific jurisdiction.
I am not able to understand what you are saying here as the Curacao licensed casinos operate worldwide?

Or did you say that the validity of a Curacao license rely on Curacao laws?


Anyone who trusts a gambling website because they are "licensed" is silly because when you sign up to a (traditional) online casino you agree to often iron-clad terms and conditions which legally give the casino the opportunity to mess you over.
The part you missed is that the civil laws of the jurisdiction where a casino is incorporated always stand above the terms and conditions of the casino. Hence, if a part of the terms and conditions are not in accordance with the local civil laws, then they are simply not valid and a player could enforce his rights at the court.

Well fuck me if this is allowed on this forum:
I thought you had mistakenly posted the same quote multiple times until I actually checked the date on them. That shouldn't be allowed, regardless of what anyone thinks about the hyperlinks.

This is straight-up copy pasting the same content across different threads, which is spam.

And many times, game-protect has violated this rule as well: 32. Posting multiple posts in a row (excluding bumps and reserved posts by the thread starter) is not allowed.
Lastly, using his link in such a manner violates rule 24: Advertisements (including signatures within the post area) in posts aren't allowed unless the post is in a thread you started and is really substantial and useful.
