    when did Amazon send you the email?? What was stated?

    ha what were you doing to get yourself ban? I have been doing BH on Amazon for about 2 months now... and making a killing with them but i'm controlling the amount of $ i earn...

    Hopefully what i'm doing is safe and the correct method...

    I am averaging over 1500% ROI with amazon using blackhat-- you have nothing to worry about-- the check will come-- it just takes forever!!

    Im using a few CS methods on my Amazon account, im getting about 7500 "Click" per 25 sales, is that enough to start ringing alarm bells at Amazon? also i dont hide my refferer, i guess i should look into that before i go batshitcrazy with it.

    I was banned on Amazon last year (for being a dumbass, mind you). They sent me an email.

    This was last year, so I don't know if they're extending such courtesies this year.

    Just keep your referrers blank and you'll be fine.. eBay is actually the best place I've found for targeted Amazon traffic.

    Well I am careful on how I stuff but to tell you the truth no many ppl get banned from them. If they can catch me, well they deserve a reward and kudos to them :)

    Yes, you are correct! Amazon is really good at detecting stuffs. I just recently got banned for "stuffs" and they were all "blanking the referrer" too. I opened up 2 more accounts and started the same process with image stuffs, blanking the referrer and STILL got my account banned.

    I need to find out why my accounts keep getting banned! I am using a different IP, address, name, etc., everytime I register. If anyone has suggestions, let me know!

    BTW, just be patient on the payments....it took awhile for me to receive my first payment, but once I did, they came every month.

    Are you really sure your referrers were blank with image stuffing?
