Affiliates Feeling F***ed by Bet365 Porn Claim

UK-based Bet365.com banners reportedly have been appearing on various porn websites and the company believes it has exposed at least one affiliate.

The online gambling affiliate, who complained to the Affiliate Watchdog monitoring site, posted the following:

Currently our account is suspended and set to 0% commission as our affiliate manager Laura Clarke emailed us to say someone has found our tracking link on a pornographic website. We have never promoted anyone on pornographic sites so this email came as a complete shock.

We explained this to bet365 and they completely ignored our response and insist we are guilty of this apparent breach despite providing no evidence to us bar a screenshot of the bet365 landing page with our tracking link on it.

Now we are in conversation with Karl Pugh who seems to be determined to close the account down. He even said, even if we are found innocent, which we will be of course, they won't be paying us the commission in the period we have been set to 0%. This is outrageous!!

One blogger was presumably so pissed off by unwanted Bet365 popups (when apparently visiting certain porn sites) that he decided to write about it as he claims said popups were capable of disrupting his hard drive:

Bet365.com is a malicious website that is classified as a redirect virus. It comes bounded with free download of video player, update code, Java or security tool. Annoying pop-up warnings will be implanted on every page that you visit.

Bet365.com is extremely dangerous. It keeps coming up with a new tab when you start browsers like Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge. Bet365.com has been reported to be involved in promoting the third party. So all those scary alerts are used to distract you and lead to further money violation. Your personal information could be invaded deeply.

Bet365.com enters into your PC when you visit insecure site that contains massive music, video, game and porn. Any improper click could add those unwanted applications like Bet365.com. This appearance suggests that computer gets infected with adware or PUP. Many problems would be caused once infected.

The unnamed affiliate only issued his complaint on Tuesday.

Gambling911.com will continue to monitor this situation until climax.
