    I am absolutely piss sick of being took the piss out of by an affiliate program, yet they make me quite good money, about £2000 a month. Their figures just simply do not add up, at the moment they have done me out of about £1000 this month. I have took as many links down as I can but as it is gambling associated I still have a lot of players who keep making me good money. I feel like confronting the dickheads about their shitty tactics, but do no know if it is worth it. What do you think?

    If what they are adding to your monthly income does not worth it, dont waste time on them. Pay attention to the ones helping you to make good money. At the same time, those scammers would deny playing games on you.

    I can relate to you here mate. I was with a dating affiliate that suddenly changed their pay per lead/sale program without my knowledge. I was well pissed off at the time, but they were still bringing me in good money each month, so i thought, as long as im getting a good wage every month, may aswell stick with it.

    If you are still happy and can live well with what they pay you (even though they are shaving), i would stick with it mate, better than a 9-5 :)

    I know I should just learn to live with it, but when I see they blatantly just take 200 - 300 quid off me it really f**king annoys me. I really wish the players would play out and go, but they are really big players. I feel like saying to them "well how does this match up with your bonus" which they have blamed it on in the past, but obviously now it has nothing to do with their bonus scheme. I do not want to confront them over their fake bonuses as I think I would just get my account closed, but every time it comes to the end of the month and they have paid me, I seriously feel like confronting them. They may tell me it is a big mistake and give me what they actually owe me, but my guess is they will shut my account.

    Ask them for a payout bump. Don't threaten them, try a more diplomatic route.
