      I got the following email. What is it about? Spam I am guessing. I played on stars a couple of times this week. It did come from a proper email.
      Callum.Noble@pokerstrategy.com

      Hi clandestineAl,
      My name is Callum Noble and I would like to introduce myself as VIP manager at PokerStrategy.com.
      I am here to help regarding all of our deals and VIP offers for our partner rooms. Even someone to complain to if you are running bad!
      I see you play at PokerStars and have noticed you have not been active this week. Is there any reason for this?
      I perfer talking over skype as emails are a bit impersonal so if you need any help at all please add me on skype Callum.Noble.PS
      Regards
      Callum Noble
      VIP Manager

      I received the e-mail as well. It seems legit, CallumN's posts on the forum include the same skype name. I suppose it's a customer retention technique.

      i dont get the email. it says i havent played in a week when in fact ive been playing at stars since july 27 this month. and on august alone i have logged 7k hands already. seems pretty weird to retain someone who's been playing all along :D

      maybe then can give us a stars reload bonus? :D

      Normally I would trust it with a legit email but the fact he didn't know I had been playing. I also got a duplicate email a few minutes later without poker stars being mentioned. Made me suspicious.

      Hi guys,

      CallumN is indeed the real deal. I am sure he will come here and verify himself :)


      Best regards,
      Gary

      On the heel of the PS/FT announcement, it seems that they would want to say, "Hey, don't leave us for previous RB/affiliates which were attached to your FullTilt acct., because even though "nobody is active here", we do care."


      I for one have never enjoyed playing on fulltilt, and perhaps also because of ease of deposit, along with slick software, have stayed with PS, until finding some new deals here, 770, pkr, etc., so I'm not going anywhere CallumN, but I promise to be more active... :f_p:

      I wonder what kind of hellish day we could put him through, spamming back with all kinds of questions/demands :s_thumbsup: :coolface:

      Hi Guys,

      The email was sent to all members that had been inactive (from our data) for the period of July 24th-30th.

      I admit I made a mistake and mentioned PokerStars to some users when in fact they were not tracked to us. My apologies for that.

      However the reason for my email was to make sure all of our players are still happy with PokerStrategy and try and find out why you have not been playing. For example I found out that a user didn't get his BetFair account tracked properly and was missing out on SP's.

      Its all in your interests and as a VIP manager I am here to help everyone :)

      Also in the words of HollyMichelle, I am the real deal :s_cool:

      Someone did demand 1 billion kajillion dollars in exchange for him making a deposit.

      I only had about tree fiddy in my stars account so I couldn't do much :(

      Hi ArkhamAsylum,

      Its not automated, its something I decided to send out to keep track of all inactive players.

      But if you do go a month without playing I will come chasing :P

      Callum
