    I have been recommending Media.net as an alternative to adsense for some time now. Although I did recieve 1 small payment from them. My account was recently banned.

    The payments due are from a month ago and part of this month totaling almost $700.00. I also noticed that at first your account manager(s) are very attentive and answer you within several hours. I liked this as it is a huge change compared to adsense. Over recent weeks I noticed that my account manager and others were not available at all. The other day I got this message from their Compliance Team....

    Let me first say that all the traffic to the sites that I used were 100% from search engines. No poor paid traffic, no social... all highly targeted traffic.

    A friend of mine put me in contact with Richard B, the head of their publisher relations team. I called him today and was pretty much blown off. I wanted to ask what it was that caused them to ban my account ( It was hard to understand him as he had a thick Indian accent). He pretty much said something about emailing the spam team and he would get back to me.

    Anyway... I am not saying that they are scammers or anything, just saying it is weird that when I was about to get a nice sized payment from them that they suddenly decided that my account was "continuously to violating our publisher guidelines and creating significant risks to our advertiser interests".

    Just a little heads up. I highly doubt I will hear from them again....

    That's very interesting. To me it clearly seems like scam!

    Maybe posting this in the shitlist might generate some activity/interest/exposure?
