    I last used adpulse.net in early March and since then I have been waiting to get fully paid. I got about $2200 of it and am waiting for the remaining $2200. They said there were issues with the banks and wire transfers, but i am tired of being given the same runaround week after week. The affiliate manager said 3 weeks ago he would cancel the wire and pay with paypal and still nothing.

    I have notified both Cory and Dan about this thread, and they should be here any minute from now with complete proofs and etc.

    Hope all you resolve this well.

    sorry to hear this - when people tell you wires delayed etc - it's usually b/s - it's more they don't have
    the money to cover the wire.

    as if you send a wire today by 11 am or 2 pm depending on timezone your in - it will be there the next day.

    Some banks use correspondent banks in sending wires so that should add only one day however sometimes
    they will be batched processed - so 3 days.

    anyway 2 weeks or more as you claim simply means they didn't have the money in their account to pay you.

    Hope you get your money .. cheers.

    so just take screenshots of the earnings - and they still don't pay you -- send them a notice
    telling them they have 14 days to pay - or you will file in small claims court... it's easy and as
    long as your traffic is good (no fraud they can prove) - you will win.

    (also keep the records of what they already paid)

    This is simply ridiculous.

    First of all, every one of our publishers has been paid up to date, some early if they needed it, and we are about to make our payments for May. Sure, there have been some issues along the way getting payments to the odd publisher, new network, teething problems etc but ALL have been resolved. Why would we simply choose not to just pay you?

    In your case, I believe we have been very accomodating and I personally have chased this outstanding payment around. On your part, communication from you, to me, has been lax at best, yet you expect me to resolve these issues immediatley, when all I have from you is your word.

    For example

    [29/03/2012 17:41:06] Dan - adPulse / New Dating Offers Added: so keep me posted :)
    [10/04/2012 22:33:37] saveposter - AdPulse FB: when was the last wire payment made and for mow much?

    I asked for you to keep me posted, to ensure that it arrived, 2 weeks went by, THEN you tell me it hasnt and expect me to resolve the issue instantly.

    You didnt keep me posted as I asked, and thus I assumed that you had got it. Then it transpires that you did not receive it, so of course I am going to take some time to check up. I am not just going to wire you another $2k of cash on your say so. Verifing the status of a wire transfer that was sent over 2 weeks previous takes a little time, and allI can do, is wait for the bank to do it.

    This issue actually turned out to be an incorrect routing code entered for the wire, a clerical error, not on our part but at the bank. I do all of our wire transfer personally in branch to try and eliminate silly mistakes like this.

    [15/04/2012 13:15:38] Dan - adPulse CPA: you disappear for 2 weeks, do not inform me that payment has not come, then expect me to fix it immediately!
    [15/04/2012 13:16:02] Dan - adPulse CPA: If you have informed me sooner it would have been fixed sooner. I told you I had spoken with the bank about it and that it was being represented.
    [15/04/2012 15:30:41] saveposter - AdPulse FB: ok i will keep waiting ..i just assumed it would be fixed the first time around
    [15/04/2012 15:31:28] Dan - adPulse CPA: well banks are not the brightest bunch I can look into stopping it and paying you via paypal
    [17/04/2012 01:04:37] saveposter - AdPulse FB: still havent gotten it

    Then I offer to stop it and get it to him by Paypal...no response for 2 days.

    Finally I get a acknoledgement that Paypal is fine, but not given a Paypal! 2 days later again, message that theres no payment

    [17/04/2012 01:07:56] Dan - adPulse CPA: next payment I want to use paypal or payoneer to you, as this is crazy and stupid
    [17/04/2012 01:08:15] saveposter - AdPulse FB: ok paypal would work for me

    [19/04/2012 15:02:53] saveposter - AdPulse FB: still no payment

    [20/04/2012 17:00:45] Dan - adPulse CPA: ok give me paypal
    [20/04/2012 17:00:51] Dan - adPulse CPA: I will send the other through that
    [20/04/2012 17:01:11] saveposter - AdPulse FB: *******@yahoo.com

    Finally I get a Paypal, and send the remaining balance (not the wire) via Paypal.

    [20/04/2012 20:50:49] saveposter - AdPulse FB: ok send that remainder and the wire part will get sorted eventually

    I was never instructed to stop the wire as you can see above, he was happy for that to get represented and get the remainder payment via Paypal.

    [23/04/2012 20:08:12] saveposter - AdPulse FB: I still have not gotten the wire part

    Only on the 23rd of April, 1 week ago, was I requested by saveposter to STOP the wire, get it recalled and send that money via Paypal when it is back in our account. This can take up to 10 working days and can STILL CLEAR as the money is in the US, and has to come back to the UK (where we are located).

    I hope you can all see from this post, that the blame in not totally on my side and I have done as much as possible to resolve this issue as best as we can.

    As soon as that wire payment is returned, and so cant have cleared to you, we will clear our balance with you as I have stated all along.

    I've been having absolute nightmares with banks and wire payments over the last few weeks.
    One company owes me over $21,000 and the wire keeps bouncing back. It's not the sender it's the banks.

    Seems your both to blame - the OP should have made himself very clear on his wire and paypal instructions.

    But also the company screwed up - correcting a bank mistake - and he still didn't receive the money ? this is puzzling to
    me - how this was able to occur.

    Anyway seems you both should take a step back and just make sure the guy gets his money in a professional manner.

    Good Luck With It.

    The way I understand it, is that the company gave the bank correct instructions, but the bank screwed up and put the wrong routing code in. In such scenario the company is not the one to blame, but the bank.

    that's the thing the payment would not have been made : because as I understand it - the routing number was wrong - so the payment
    would never have been sent in the first place - the money would have remained in your account the whole time. So you would have
    known there was a problem even if the OP said nothing to you - which seems to be the case.

    Anyway both are at fault of sloppy communication and checking on these things ... but really who cares at this point - just act professionally and help the guy get his money.

    Good Luck.

    Don't know how it's in the US, but in the UK I am able to receive money even if I put the wrong name in the box. Might be similar with routing numbers - the money goes out, but gets lost somewhere in middle, but who knows.

    Correct if its US to US, but this is UK to US, to it goes to a beneficiary bank in the US first, then gets routed from there.

    Thats how I understand it's working anyway from what the bank rep was briefly explaining to me when I was chasing this up.

    I always add bank branch address in the notes also for payments out, no idea if that helps it get further along if any of the other details are incorrect or not, I just do it for completeness sake.

    It doesn't actually work like that. Sometimes it take up to three weeks before the money returns to your account and then the bank doesn't inform you.
    When you have several thousand affiliates you can't keep checking to make sure every transaction went through.
    The onus is on the affiliate to inform the network they haven't received payment.
    I don't think this thread warrants a shitList. The accused has responded and hopefully the
    situation will be resolved.

    well no it doesn't work like that - you might leave the bank with a piece of paper saying they will make
    a payment for you to the following person and the following bank details... but that's only at branch level...
    they are not actually doing the transaction.

    then it gets sent to the central processing part of the bank - if they can't input the payment then the money
    never leaves your account... such as here where the receiving bank code was wrong.

    if the bank code is correct and the account number was wrong then you will have a delay in getting the money back
    but only if your bank uses a correspondent bank... otherwise it will just be a couple of days while it's traced.

    anyway I don't think we need to go through the whole system and the number of checks that are in the system to
    stop mistakes from happening on the bank side of things.

    In this case the OP really should have been clearer and the Company should figure it out / correct and resolve in a professional manner.

    As per PoFeckers "Shit List Rules"

    Shit List Rules

    From here on out, anyone caught falsely or prematurely accusing someone of being a scammer in The Shit List will be permanently banned from the forum at our discretion. Because, frankly, it's getting to be a little god damned ridiculous, especially when only about 25% of the claims in The Shit List were actual scams. It's not fair to the person who's falsely accused, and it's not fair to BHW to cast us in such a negative light. SO, pay close attention:

    BEFORE posting a thread in The Shit List, you MUST try to contact the member using ALL means necessary. Waiting 24-48 hours might be a good idea.

    State your case completely and clearly, including any evidence you have.

    You are prohibited from publishing a shitlist thread about a item or service that wasn't on BHW. Only issues with sellers/vendors that posted in the BST or Service sections, unless the scam was perpetuated by a person in a position of trust. (Staff members, Executive VIP's, etc).


    I have highlighted the points in bold. We have not promoted on BHW, and this forum should be only for compaints for BHW services and such. OP didnt really provide much evidence and clearly state the facts.

    We work very hard over here to try and run a professional CPA network, are slowly building a good reputation, and while issues and problem will always arise, I feel that this thread is wrongly posted here.

    Well, the money DOES leave the account - no matter if there's a mistake in the information or not. It does leave the account and just hangs at the intermediary bank, since it does not know where to route it to next. I'm pulling out - you're questioning an Exec VIP who obviously makes tons of money and has encountered such problems in the past. I believe he knows best. Peace!

    He didnt need a thread to get my attention, he already had it.

    If you read my post, you will see that, I have been working to resolving it. That said, Im not just going to take his word for it and send him another $2k on the threat of a thread on BHW.

    Additionally the lack of comms on his part, 2 weeks before informing me that he hadn't got it, then me having to wait 2 days for a yes to Paypal, then another 2 days to GET his paypal address did not help either.

    I never once ignored him, avoided him or anything and kept him in the loop on everything that was going on, if I had no intention of resolving it, I wouldnt do any of what I have done.

    Adpulse is one of the better networks I've worked with.
    Both Dan and Cory are always responsive, working weekends and late nights to keep both advertisers and publishers happy.

    Seems the OP jumped the gun on this one.

    Interesting.

    The only point I'll make in this case is this. fuserleer~ You seem to place all the blame on petiaisneat09 for lack of communication for the two week period after you sent the 2k. In my opinion, you, as a professional, should have been making attempts at contacting him/her to assure that the money had made it instead of just assuming.

    You are both to blame, just help him get his money back. This thread will eventually be deleted and petiaisneat09 will be either warned or banned for making a thread here without proper proof as stated above.

    Just help this guy and move on, stop trying to defend yourself. Everyone who reads this thread knows you are BOTH to blame. You can't change that so don't try.
