If you have been an active Internet marketer on https://forums.digitalpoint.com. Then you should read this! The CEO is a scammer.

Shawn Hogan, the CEO of a successful online marketing company called Digital Point Solutions, was sentenced to five months in federal prison for his role in defrauding eBay of an alleged $28 million in online marketing fees. He must remain on three years' probation after that, and was fined $25,000. Hogan will enter prison on July 14, according to federal court records. Hogan previously reached a civil settlement with eBay also. The sentence brings to a close one of the strangest chapters in eBay's history.




Shawn Hogan, CEO of Digital Point Solutions and former eBay affiliated marketer, is sentenced to $25,000 fine and 5 months in prison.

Ebay?s Top Affiliate Gets Busted

I'd take six months for multi millions. Though he was making millions without it.
Six months sentence, probably three months with good behaviour. Come out rich as fuck.
 
They did say he reached a civil settlement with ebay which makes me wonder if he kept all of that money.
Another thing that tickles me blue is all of those whitehat worshipers over at DP was led by an over zealous
blackhat cookie stuffer. Ironic eh?

I'd do 6 months for half of the amount that guy has laid his hands on.

Seriously, I totally would.

I bet he didn't pay back much. Really they don't give a fuck. If it wasn't him, most probably would have had someone elses referral.
 
He was a phucking idiot. The feds have been cracking down hard on cookie stuffing for at least the past 4-6 years. There were several others who went down hard on cookie stuffing a few years back as well. Someone of his caiber of IM had to have known this.

Hell the block was so hot from c-stuffing till any talk about it on many BH forums (including BHW...) became against the TOS quickly. Methods and threads were removed.

What was he thinking? He wouldn't get caught too? LOL... how many million was enough?

A classic example of dumb greed.
*Even though ebay is full of $hit as well as they knew it all along and STILL made their profits off of his so-called 'illegal' activity.

Moral of the story... don't be a dumbass. (Unless you don't mind doing the time :cool:)
