      I thought this offer was too good to be true.

      there's nothing you can do

      All your email/poker accounts will be stolen , all your passwords typed from the keyboard , your bank accounts will be depleted and you will find your entire pornographic collection with your wife/neighbour/dog on youtube . Inevitable you will be fired from your job , your wife will win the house over the divorce and you will become a homeless alcoholic gypsy .

      adn obviously you will lose the respect of pokerstrategy community forever and all your struggling to convince us that you are a human and not a melon will be ignored

      Well I'm an IT so automatically I am a hacker. But I think you misunderstand the word hacker thanks to the media. Anyway check this out please :)

      No worries, i already backtraced it and reported it to the cyber police. However consequences will never be the same for whoever opened that email.

      Hi pokerstrategy users,

      Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm Jack - Manager at Poseidon Poker.

      With this reply I wanna give you an update on yesterdays scam/phishing campaign, offering a $500 bankroll

      I was informed that two domains was involved in the scam and until now one of them is closed down and still one to go, but we are working on it.
      The site thats already closed down was hacked and taken over and used for this phishing scam, by external people.

      The phishing domain thats still up and running is
      http://poseidonpoker.ce.ms/
      and this is for sure not a legit Poseidon Poker domain or any affiliate partner - please do not visit this site nor fill out the form!!!

      Play safe and wishes for a great weekend,

      Jack
