    Craigslist is getting harder and harder to spam, and on top of it, they are educating more and more of their users about affiliate marketing.
    I don't normally post in the job category. I just saw this today trying to post in the job section:

    FUN FACT: If you are able to determine a scammer's "affiliate ID" and report it to their affiliate marketing program, this will often result in termination of the scammer, and confiscation of the scammer's ill-gotten gains by the affiliate program.


    Now my question, everyone knows that most clickbank products shows the affiliate ID in the URL. If some users from CG contact clickbank and give them your ID, does clickbank ban you and forfeit ur commissions?
    I have read loads of topics on clickbank not tracking properly, but so rarely about banning accounts.
    Do they usually close accounts if there are complaints with the CG posting as proof?

    This is the reason I use Ninja Link Cloaker... You must not of been Cloaking
    And on 95% of Networks its also Shows only the Cloaker as Referral..

    i read the whole ninja cloaker sales page, and I still dont understand how it will cloak the clickbank url in the browser...

    i can understand a redirect, but it would redirect to the clickbank link and it would show in a browser... unless it frames it, no?

    I feel im missing a critical element

    What is the update on this?

    pretty much any php or html url which redirects can be viewed in any html editor, and will show the affiliate code...

    any work around to this?

    I don't get it.
    With clickbank they are making a purchase and unless you have some
    secret super duper blackhat method of haveing people purchase something without
    them knowing why on earth should someone report you? It's not like it's a disguised
    CPA offer or anything.

    i think that CL warning was mostly referring to people who were tricking others to sign up for credit reports. you can't exactly trick someone into buying a clickbank ebook.

    Ya but I have a feeling if someone can sniff out your aff link, they will report you anyways just to hate on you for being an affiliate.. atleast on CL... I hate CL people.

    I don't know what you should do to get banned off Clickbank. I think they allow everything or more likely - care about nothing.

    Does Ninja Link Cloaker get rid of the "affiliate = _______" at the bottom of the order page? This is just as big of a problem as the id in the link.
