    I have recently just started to promote gambling sites and have found a very good niche. I have been an affiliate for years and make good money and have a lot of experience. However I am just looking for an opinion, preferably from someone who has experience in the Gambling niche.

    On one affiliate program I am using I have had five depositors and funny enough all five have had charge backs, which amazingly is just the right amount to make my account zero or plus a couple of $'s

    There definition of a charge back is someone who plays by credit / debit card and then cancels the amount of money via credit / debit card.

    What makes me think all the more that I am being had off. is that one of the players regularly deposits into the account. If he had of cancelled a payment, then he would have been in debt to the account so there would be no charge back

    I used to do Gambling sites and one thing I can say is always search google for reviews type in your aff program + review. skyvegas scam, sky vegas review. this will bring up all the people who have had problems with the same company

    Why not make an account under your own aff link and deposit and see if you get paid?

    If they say you chargebacked (when obviously you didn't) threaten to sue them for fraud.

    Mickyfu, you answered your own question. Ether the company or the players are finding a way to beat the system. The end result is that YOU are not getting paid, so why would you stick around?

    Are you a glutton for punishment? :(
