    So, apparently AdworkMedia network instead of stopping your campaign or contacting you to inquire information about the bad leads you get, they simply disable your account and keep all the money to themselves. Guess that's how they do, it business, it was a surprise for me to receive this email from them this morning.

    No other advertisers from other networks has ever complained about the same leads I bring with the same traffic.
    Has anyone else had the same bad experience?

    I was thinking of applying to Adworkmedia but after seeing this I won't, coz if my leads are legit (which always are) I don't want this to happen to my account.
    scrubbing some leads is fine but acc termination is BS..

    Hi Guys - First of All, I'm sorry that your account was terminated, but if you are providing poor lead quality for our advertisers, then we must take action. The advertiser reported proxies/VPNs and stated that the user information submitted on their offers was false. Even if this was unintentional on your behalf, you are responsible for your lead quality.

    This account was previously paid over $350 in earnings and was even paid early. Only $17 was not paid to this user because of the revokes that we took for his leads.

    We don't randomly ban accounts or shave leads, what would be the point in that - everything we do is for a valid reason and in the best interests of our publishers/advertisers. If we lost this advertiser then our publishers would have lost many great US & INTL offers.

    Fair enough. It should have been the correct action since banning an publisher who brings you business itself contradict the term business which gather everyone to be a part of something.

    So in other words you're saying I can personally get anyone banned from adworkmedia? Cause if that's the case then this network makes no sense. Also what about privacy =/ Noone needs to know he had $17 in his account. It could've matured into $17,000 or it could've done nothing once it's money lost, It's money lost.

    If the traffic is bad, why should other advertisers have to deal with it?

    Two things: (1). If the advertiser "requested" that the account be terminated the company would be up against the wall. They sacrifice the one for the many; but, (2). As was pointed out above, some one can easily get someone else's account terminated when that person did not deserve it.
    A bit short-sighted on AWM's part, I think.

    You are running movie site, people who come to movie sites are stupid kids who are using proxies and vpns to complete surveys because they are mostly coming from some foreign countries. Let's face it, Americans have Netflix which is not expensive, other smart people have torrents and warez, only kids are visiting movie sites.

    Adwork Media is a GREAT network and they will never scam you, i'm working with them for three months and got all my payments, they helped me in some situations also and they are one of the best, if not best, network around.

    If your traffic was fraudulent , you didn't left them too much choice, other network wouldn't respond to your question either they would simply suspend you.

    Guys, AdworkMedia is the best incentive network I have worked with. Calling it a scam, is not fair, cause these guys worked very hard to create the best incentive network, and they succeeded.
    And you are calling them a scam network because they banned you for using their offer on a movie site? It's your fault not theirs...

    I have been working with AdworkMedia only for the last 3 months and all I can say is that it has been the best content locking network for me till now , I have tried others like Blam Ads and all before coming to AdworkMedia. So from my personal experience they have been very good and helpful . Also many of the CPA Networks have got bankrupt and closed because of fraud activities. They pay people but the advertisers never pay them so they get huge losses. So now most of them are quite strict on fraud activities. I have been very satisfied with their service , their epcs have been good too and I would not want to see this network also to go bankrupt and close. So personally I feel it is a good step to keep check on fraud. Guys you can earn serious money and long-term earnings from legit ways so why go and do fraud activities.

    Wow, so your actually justifying this action then, when I noticed that you had replied to this thread, I thought that you would of explained it was a mistake, are you seriously going take this poor guys money, what if this guy needs the money to pay his rent and for his living?

    Your ACTUALLY justifying banning your members accounts, because of this > "If we lost this advertiser then our publishers would have lost many great US & INTL offers" :(

    So what if you have no publishers because of these types of actions, then you will still not make any money, honestly I'm dumbfounded by this, you could of at LEAST removed him from the offer OR at the VERY least paid the guy his money.

    I would really like to hear back from you about this, please can you reply based on what I have mentioned above.

    Yeah AWM is shity network.... Check my story:
    I posted my link on a forum, was using link-locker, and this was a very legit way to get some money on awm. One guy got pissed off and he said "enjoy your bann" - I was like wtf is he talking about, ignored him and kept on cooling... Day after I went to my mail and recieved an e-mail saying that I'm banned -.-
    This proofs you what kind of network they are. They will bann anyone for no reason, and I can say, I made a horrible mistake by signing up to their network. FUUCK YOU DENNIS! YOU SUCK MAN!
    If they continue like this, they will lose their publishers.... However, I'm glad you see what kind of network is adworkmedia...
    I'd recommend you to sign up peerfly, as I heared, they are very nice network, they payout right on time, and also giving awesome support. Cheers =)
