Thread: Casino Promotion Scams? :/

  1. #1
    I am getting "Text Promotions," from "Gulfstream Park Casino, ". First one was claiming on Wednesday night that I had won 500(Didn't specify whether it was $500 or $5.00 in free play which was the first red flag) for a Hot Seat Giveaway for visiting recently. The Hot Seat Promotion had happened on Sunday when I visited but the Hot seat Promotion was from 12-6 and at 12-6 I had been working, so obviously didn't qualify for the Promotion. The second red flag was the fact that the window was way too short. Gave me the "Free play Promotion Text," at around 9 PM when I was already in bed and claimed I had until 11 PM to use it. What Legitimate Promotion gives a two hour window? I was going to go to Gulfstream Park Casino the very next day as I have $120 in free play for the entire month of August.

    The very next day, I went to GPC Player's Club to ask them about this weird Promotion text. The Staff Member looked confused and mentioned that he felt this was a SCAM and a HOAX as they don't send ANY text Messages and mentioned this weird Text Message didn't come from GPC
    He called his Boss about this weird Promotion Text and his Boss reiterated that this was a SCAM and a HOAX as they don't send Texts. I brushed it off thinking that maybe this was a one time game that some random person was doing to random people.

    Last night, this number on the text called me but I was asleep. When I woke up, I got a text message from the same saying I had $60 in points for my play yesterday. I had back to back free play on Thursday and Friday. I was beginning to get a bit weirded out.

    Today, I got a THIRD TEXT from this Number claiming I had two free bus tickets to go play at GPC. I am seriously getting creeped out now. This is getting disturbing especially since this number should have NO idea I take the bus....

    In fact, here are the exact texts.

    First message.

    Wednesday, August 19th 2020 at 8:56 PM.

    Hi KAREN, thank you for visiting gulfstream. You have earned 500 hot seat freeplay. It is valid until 11pm.

    Second message.

    Friday, August 21st, 2020 at 11:40 PM

    HI KAREN, thank you for your patronage. You have earned 60 dollars in points for your play today.

    Third message.

    Saturday, August 22, 2020 at 11:05 AM.

    HI KAREN, thank you for your patronage. You have earned 2 one way tickets for the bus for your play today.

    Here is the phone number.

    +16786793794.

    You should discard your phone and never visit another casino or gambling site again. You have attracted the gang stalkers with your shenanigans..You have been identified and the only way to make it stop is by disappearing completely. Let me be first to say goodbye and wish you luck.

    Shit, that makes total sense. Funny, but not very cool, whoever has Tasha's number. Hopefully, this ends up being a, "Once was enough," sort of joke...but I don't think I'd bet on it.

    ADDED: Tasha, you can change your phone number for something like $5-$10, I think. Just contact whoever your phone provider is. They'll sometimes even waive the fee if you say you are getting excessive spam calls.

    Also, use WhitePages.com to do phone number searches if you get anything that looks weird:

    https://www.whitepages.com/phone/1-678-679-3794

    So, this phone number is a, "Non-Fixed VoIP," number. What that means is that it is a number than can be used by something like Skype, Google Voice or other free-to-call/text type of things. IOW, it doesn't, "Belong," to anyone.

    Curious have you received any text from anyone claiming to be from a bank or government office of course in a third world country, citing 30, 50, 90, maybe 200 million dollars was left to you in an unclaimed fund?

    Here's another link:

    https://www.usphonebook.com/678-679-3794

    This link gives information that is a bit different than Mission's link . . .

    That's a good site. Maybe use both. I will say this having checked a couple phone numbers on that one:

    ---It's wrong about who owns my number, because it says someone who is not me.

    ---It is correct about my fiancee's number.

    On a few other people I know:

    Five correct.

    Two wrong.

    Two, "Did not return a valid result."***

    Whitepages.com seems mostly just concerned with what sort of phone it is and what provider owns the number, at least on the search I used.

    Anyway, good tip! Definitely worth checking both (and maybe others) if you're suspicious of something.

    ***I imagine that, the longer someone has a number, the more likely it is to be correct.

    Thanks Mission. I agree that checking both should be done.

    I'm beginning to think that someone from THIS website may be giving me these weird Text Promotions from "Gulfstream Park Casino." Check out this latest "Promotion Text I got.

    "And a free hot dog or banana if you join." Why would Gulfstream Park Casino send a Promotional Text like this? With all of the Ape jokes being hurled at me, and the text saying free bus tickets to the Casino, plus the text Promotion I got for a free meal at Christine Lee's Restaurant for visiting it after I mentioned I was going to use my Food Comps at Christine Lee's Restaurant(I used it the other day) I wouldn't put it past someone from this website to have been behind these "Gulfstream Park Casino Text Promotions."

    Now you are making some pretty serious allegations. Screenshot pics of your phone or it didn't happen.

    FYI....I think the Longhorn gives out a pack of cookies for signing up. So that may be legit.

    Agree with Max. So you gave your phone number to a person or multiple people on this site??

    If you did, that was a stupid thing to do.

    My advice would be a switch your number or just buy another Tracphone.

    So why do you think it is someone on here? And how would they have gotten your phone number?

    But yeah I think someone is fucking with you, just not someone from here unless you aren’t admitting you gave your number out. Or you are the member on here fucking with yourself.

    And that message is definitely a scam. No casino would reply like that and use the phrase “We swear”. That said, you seem to use that phase a lot.

    It doesn’t mean you didn’t text yourself from another one of your phones, does it?

    I only have ONE phone. These text messages really did come from someone named Max who claimed to be in Marketing! I'm telling the truth!

    This has to be a made up conversation with yourself. It is a constant troll by you on this forum
