FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

Just received this email:

As a valued player on our site, we are pleased to inform you that you have been selected to receive rakeback on all of your future play at Full Tilt Poker.

Currently this opportunity is only available to a select group of loyal players that have played on our site without the ability to receive rakeback.

To take advantage of this special offer, visit www.rakebackpros.com and sign up for an account. If you have any questions, please contact support@rakebackpros.com for assistance.

Sincerely,

The Affiliate Team at Full Tilt Poker


pretty damn cool, but also about damn time.

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

In my eyes, it all looks good still. Are you saying its some kind of scam? and you're feeling pretty sure about it?

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

lol - I'm pretty sure if you go there they will say create a new account then it's just a matter of time before they come and shut your account/freeze your funds.

awaiting FTPDoug's this is a scam response.

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

when following the link to rakebackpros.com from the email it took me to a page where I filled out a few minor things to set up an account there to be able to track my rb. It seems legit to me

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

I just emailed FTP support with a copy of that to see what they say.

I would be very happy if this were true but I wont hold my breath.

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

This sounds like it could go either way. I'm one of the most loyal players on that site and never received anything about receiving rakeback. I emailed them asking what was going on. i'll let you guys know what they say when i receive word back. GLGLGLGL showu. haha.

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

Why would they ask you to create new accounts and not just add it to your existing account?

I'd say it's legit since you had to cross out your SN on the picture you posted.....

Re: FTP rakeback for existing accounts finally happening

Why would they send you to one specific affiliate that doesn't appear to be operated by themselves? That site does not appear to have been created by Full Tilt themselves. This after all the no rakeback in sight talk for over year at FTP.

I did a quick "WHOIS" search on that link, and it seems a little fishy to me.

Here, note the anonymous entries for everything. Doesn't seem to up and up to me.

Also, the current registrar is different between fulltilt and the rakebackpros (not damning evidence, but something...)

Oh man, I always do that, and get to that crappy site, then kick myself for not remembering. Anyway, the real fulltiltpoker.com:

Seems like a slightly anonymous registration, but the registrar is "Safenames". I guess it isn't as compelling as I previously thought, but it still seems fishy to me.

And I'm not sure what this means, but at the bottom of the page, it has FT's IP address location as canada, but rakebackpros' as New York. At least that's if I didn't screw anything else up.

BTW, nice catch of the fulltilt versus fulltiltpoker...ugh...
