    Angry Adfoc is a confirmed SCAM artist!!

    Today, I shocked to see that they banned almost all users who requested payout this month. I requested for $13 payout, and when I logged into adfoc today, I saw that my account has been banned for payouts. I checked out their forums, and I saw many are complaining about these, and admin started removing posts regarding payouts..

    Here are the screenshots:

    They will add/change Rules and Regulations every month to get you banned. So people, don't waste your time there, better you go ******* or somewhere. This is from my experience. I wasted my time getting quality traffic to my shortened links abide by their rules. But at last got scammed. If anyone have any doubts, you can register adfoc forums and read users comments there. Also one thing I noticed that, today my BitDefender AV blocked access to adfoc, saying its "known fraudulent site". So beware.

    That sucks bro, but honestly, actions like this are expected from
    fly by companies. Tbh making money off url shorteners is garbage,
    you're getting pennies for a couple hundred hits, just do the same
    amount of promotion you did on Adfoc.us on some CPA offers or your
    own sites, trust me you'll make more than $1 for every 1k hits lol.

    You can earn decent money with url shorteners in autopilot (as i'm setting up atm, and profits are starting to rise so i guess it works). Good to know that site is a scam, adfly is the way to go!

    they scammed me to the admins a total creep so i setted up a quick website to try and overtake adfoc.us on google on a previous forum the admin threated me with lawyers which is abit rich seeing as he broke contract law......... also dont you need advertising certificates and be a registered company so i bet you could inform the authoirites of a illegal buisness site or something becouse i hardly doubt he pays tax and on top of scamming people he could be sent to prison?

    They are doing this because so many people are botting them. The guys over at traffik buster have a tut in their forums on how to do it. I bet their advertisers are screaming because none of the traffic is converting.

    I agree with drywallrob, Adfoc.us got butt-raped with botting recently. But if they had properly invested their huge profits in upkeep and upgrades instead of being greedy, they wouldn't be having this problem. I'd say RIP Adfoc.us, but I couldn't care less.

    I've always preferred to use the larger companies. Adfly just seemed like a much more professional looking website to me anyway.

    I want to share my experience as an advertiser with Adfoc.us

    I paid $25 to try it out since the advertising rates are pretty low. Campaign has been "Pending" since mid last month till now. I raised a few support tickets, they never responded.

    I paid using Paypal and raised a dispute in Paypal, but they did not bother to respond. Paypal's policy is that virtual goods purchases are not protected so they are getting away with my money (and probably many other people's money) with nobody to stop them.

    Beware of Ryan Pennington and Adfoc.us!

    Paypal does in fact side with the buyer of virtual items, if you have proof.
    Twice in the past I won disputes and got my money back from scammed virtual item purchases.
    You just have to have the right proof.
    Plus the seller has to show proof he delivered the goods, I find it odd that you opened a dispute, they never responded and still won, doesn't make sense, in my experiences dealing with them.

    Really? , because I received my 1st payment last Month $10.2 and it went into my Paypal .. From what I know, they Banned you if you use any Kinds of traffic sites, like EmpireViews, Roboviews and Etc or You use to shrink links that are prohibited like download link for Porn copyright Videos , musics , Nude pics..

    Ryan Pennington and adfoc.us are SCAMMERS. I heard they like to delete accounts, rather than pay, I just found that out firsthand. I requested payment for the first time, and now my account no longer exists. ALL my traffic was legit, Ryan's just a lowlife that likes to scam people. STAY CLEAR FROM THEM, GO TO *******!
