    Please: Need your opinion on this >>>

    Just got this through a friend who wants to know if he is (and I and you too, as CPA publishers, are) in danger of getting in some serious trouble due to this? >>>

    Please read:

    Coming from OfferVault site, this looks serious enough. And if so, what would your opinion be?

    Thanks all.

    Home Page:
    Not really, the article clearly makes the point about a publisher being in partnership with the network/advertiser through having a say in how the content is advertised, thus differentiating between say a publisher who accepts a banner ad placement on his website.

    With that in mind, you would only be at risk if you were promoting an offer upon which legal action was taken, as oppose to simply being a publisher of the network running any offer.

    I guess the basic message is stay the fuck away from any programs/offers that look like they could easily get in legal trouble.

    It is interesting. I know the network I am with has had a few cases against them, I know of two, they won both. It says in that article to stay away from them.

    As has been said, basically, if you are pushing a scam, though you are not the one scamming, you will get caught up in it because you are the enabler.

    95% of the stuff is legit.
