    My Trip Report

    I was at Windsor on the 14th and 15th of July for a couple of getaway days. I brought my laptop to stay in touch with work commitments and only use for work. I hooked onto their WiFi service and within an hour I was getting emails from all different names like Maria Salsbury and Sally Holiday asking me to be their "f*^*k buddy" or "I am thinking of Fu%*^ng you tonight" etc. I have never been on or close to any websites of this nature.

    After I received the 5th or 6th one I went to the Hotel desk check in and asked for a manager or supervisor and a lady ( I forgot to get her name ) came out and I told her that someone has hacked their WiFi and are sending these kinds of messages and showed her on my phone as I get my emails on my phone.

    She said she has not heard of anything like this happening and was I sure it wasn't my facebook or some website I was on. In any event she said I could just delete them.

    REALLY!! This casino has a ton of personal information in its data bank and if someone can hack in for this purpose who's to say they can't hack in to get all the information on every cardholder in their data bank.

    I told her I am not on facebook nor do I twitter or Tweet or do any social media at all. She basically said it was my fault and to check with my own service provider. She said she would check with the IT department and leave me a message on my in room phone. Later she left a message and said the IT dept are not aware of any problems and they have many firewall protectors so it cannot be their problem.

    In all I received 15 of these in a 24 hour span and as soon as I checked out and headed back home they stopped. I have a hard time believing that this was not a problem on their end as it only started once I hooked onto their WiFi and stopped as soon as I left the Casino and headed home.

    I have copied and pasted this in their survey they sent so I will see what they say about it.

    Has anyone else stayed there and used their WiFi service and had any problems similar to this?

    I live in Windsor and have stayed there hundreds of times and never had an issue with their WIFI.

    I've never had that problem there either but it does seem odd that you only received them while using their wifi. Too coincidental for sure!

    It's not an issue of the wifi. Email addresses simply end up on lists and one of those email lists has been made available to the xxx mail server lists. It's honestly no big deal. Don't click on the links in the emails, simply delete the emails without opening them. This has absolutely nothing to do with a wireless internet connection at a hotel.

    I've never had an issue at Caesars Windsor. My last stay was Canada Day weekend.

    I have never encountered this while staying at Caesars Windsor. I have stayed a half dozen or more times and always use the wifi.

    I am also not following your logic. You think because you were on the wifi people were sending you emails, and could only do so while you were on wifi? That does not make a lot of sense. It is possible for wifi networks to be compromised, to be sure, but if it happened there is a decent chance people connected to it would never notice at the time. To send you an email someone just needs your address no matter what network you are on. The email they send does not go directly to your device, it gets routed to your email provider (which is NOT on that wifi network), and then you pull/sync/push the messages to the device). Moreover, if they HAD gotten your email because you were on the network, they would then have the address and still send you things once off.

    Also depending on your provider, it is completely expected that over time they would start blocking these messages as spam and you would stop seeing them.

    People can get your email address any number of ways. Any website or business that asks for it. Hacking the email of anyone who has you in their contacts. Guessing email addresses with common name combinations.

    Also, even if they did get on to the casino's wi-fi, that does not mean that they had hacked the database. Very different things with very different security. The casino's public wifi will not be on their internal network, and even once on the internal network it would be non-trivial to steal something useful.

    In short, it is possible you overreacted.
