    No shit! I was banned a ways back for blank referrers (VERY bad at CJ) and I have not used them for about a month or two (because I was banned). Anyway, I have this new site that is a match for mostly programs that are exclusive to CJ. It seems the big dog advertisers want to go with the big dog networks, like Linkshare, Google, and of course, Commission Junction.

    Well, banned, banned, banned from CJ I thought (not the others)..... what do I do? Can I get my brother to make an account and have him cash my checks? Can I split some of my profit with another IM (with all of the horror stories I have heard)? Hmmm.

    So I went to my favorite BHW bud and explained what I was trying to do, wondering if he knew of other networks that had advertisers that were similar to what I needed, but not a match. Instead of telling me "go to network B", he said, "Well I was banned for cookie stuffing. I just applied again".

    "What a fucking concept!", I thought. "I will try it. I will just apply again." Sure enough, I applied, was accepted instantly and now I am promoting again with CJ. Who knew?..... wow!

    OK, seriously though, I did not sign up with with the same website that was banned and when they ask for tax ID, I am going to give them my BIZ tax ID and not my social security number (that I was banned with). Other than that, I am fine. This is too simple.

    Also: Don't have a tax ID? Getting one is SOOOO easy, it costs like 10 bucks for a DBA at the court-house (the DBA comes with a tax ID).

    On another note; I actually feel bad that I tried to black hat with CJ after how honest and up front they had always been with me (for years). I never worried about payment with them. I never worried the advertisers going MIA. I never worried about not being able to get a-hold of an AM or Advertiser. I never worried about anything with CJ.

    So I say to anyone banned from CJ, just sign up again, and DO NOT blackhat with them, they are too good at catching people and they are FAR too big and great of a network to loose. For real.

    That's an interesting thing to do. Did you signup from a separate ip address?

    Yes, I did. I did. That may be something to consider, but if you go through CJ accounts so fast that you need to worry about your sign up IP, you may have other things that need to be considered before promoting their offers again.

    Yes the search can be annoying and the reason that you are not finding email and zip submits is because CJ is kind of the BIG DOG of affiliate marketing, hosting all the big names and they wouldn't waste their time with something of that nature.

    I promote education offers.

    Well no. It is a seperate address because I have moved since then (I signed up years ago). I would suggest to anyone that is banned; get an inbox at youre local postal express, get a DBA, and you're golden.......

    That's all

    The problem with getting a LLC and a postal box is that by the time you do all that, you are out $300. so what if you don't get paid anyway and get banned again? that would suck

    Questions:
    1) Are you sure you're not talking about an LLC which costs like $200 bucks?
    2) Do you get it from any court house?
    3) What about the bank account info? Do you use the same one or do you have to go get a whole new bank account?

    Appreciate answers form anyone who knows.
