    my friend made a few posts on CL. with the ref link, brand new everything.

    AM gets a call, complaints, banned, loses the offer, threatens to sue.

    AM now says things are 'put in place'

    from a semi-popular CPA place too...

    can this fly?

    In theory if your "friend" is in the litigation-happy USA then the AM probably could sue him for something. In practice, no one's going to sue anyone given the high cost of legal action and the possibility of not getting a result. I wouldn't worry about, just move on.

    However you shouldn't be posting your direct affiliate links anywhere, link to one of your own domains, fake the referrer and then redirect to your affiliate program.

    People always threaten Legal Action - but it's expensive and the person has to have money or income to profit from any outcome or judgement.

    So yeah - probably bs.

    In the future always use a company and let them sue the company that has no assets (assuming this were to happen) - walk away and start a new one.

    goodluck

    you can sue for anything, open courts, but that does not mean you will win. expensive to go to court, unless small claims, and time consuming. usually a threat, but little follow through. say you will countersue, file motions to dismiss and summary judgment, etc. look up some legal terms and throw them about like you know what you are talking about and people then think twice if they think you "might" know what you are doing.
