An affiliate that works through 1ShoppingCart company has owed me $2,400 since Aug '08. I am looking for some advice on what to do? Here is where I am at:

1. All their affiliate contact info is the same as the customers for the product.

1. Tried calling their phone number, left a voice mail over a week ago. Their voice mail states "The best way to contact them through email. Do to the high volume of requests."

2. E-mailed them multiple times over the past month, always get the same automatic response. "Do to the high volume of emails please place a support ticket."

3. I created a support ticket, and got a response saying "Thank you for alerting us of this problem. I have forwarded this inquiry to upper management, and we are researching the issue."

4. I called on 1ShoppingCart and they said they aren't legally responsible for these things. And gave me the same contact info, as I got before.

Other than hiring an attorney, any other ideas? Or advice?

Hey dude, there is a casino affiliate program that has owed me over $5K since June 2007. Bastards even called me to say the payout is being made the next day, that was almost 2 years ago.

Mind you, the new AM is trying to sort it out for me but he also doesn't sound very convincing.

lol do as every company does .. get a lawyer and take the money.
There are lawyer portals on the internet, those are the cheapest way to get a professional written letter sent.

I'd say in 9/10 cases that letter will make you money.
And don't forget you receive 5-7% on the money each month, the longer they hold it the better :) But you need professional letters, if you write something yourself it's not worth much.

Sounds like a good idea.

Does anyone recommend any good lawyer portals online?

Do a search for "prepaid legal" you should be able to get a letter made at a reasonable rate.
You can also go file in small claims court..

I only know local (german) ones, and those are very cheap.
You can get sucha letter for 20$ or less

Yea, a real good lawyer will not do it for 20$ but that's just like outsourcing, if you make an offer and 100 lawyers look at it one of them wants the $ ;)
A lawyer will write stuff in the letter you'd not even think about, usually it's a fast and clean way to success if you are on the right side of the law.
