    I would like to speak to one of the Max bounty wraps or Max bounty himself. You guys have taken shaving to a whole new level with me this time your company has hit a new low. I thought there was something up with the shaving this month I instituted a way to check you and I know that I have a lot more click through's and fills because of a program that my IT guy built just to check CPA companies since there has been so much shaving going on around lately. If you'd like to respond to this allegation please do. I will stop using Max bounty and I warn all others to do the same. This is the second time that you guys have owed me money and not paid me the amount that I earned. I can prove only that I was suspicious and checked you. But this is a warning to all people the use Max bounty I am an experienced person with CPA and this company has now hit the worst days that I've ever seen from any CPA company ever. So Max if you are respond to this ad not please would like to hear your comments I would like you to explain why I am not getting paid for the leads that I sent you.

    a guy I am way past: my a.m. this is the second time they have done this only this time I knew they were doing it so I put checks and balances in place so I want to hear from the man himself why he's ripping us all off. I'm not in a talk to my a.m. again this time I'm bringing it out in public. I am angry with the way they're doing business. They do not want loyal CPA affiliates they want people putting money in their pockets and then taking it out of their affiliates pockets.

    dizzspaceteam, why not crowd source your technique for detecting shaving to some big CPA guys on bhw, and make the information public in real time?

    I've been hearing that these networks have been shaving worse and worse lately. They have no watch-dogs in place and someone really needs to kick them in the nuts.

    The marketers can make or break a company if there's a little organization.

    yea i noticed the shaving a while back, rightttttttttt around the time they got into some issues with facebook. It was then that i pretty much pulled traffic on them. i had something like 500-800 clicks in a single offer and not 1 convert, YA RIGHT!

    Actually, they call me "Snuggie" here at the office, so I must be the MaxBounty Wrap.

    Are you even English? You certainly don't appear to have an even basic grasp of the English language. I normally don't care about that, but your writing style seems to be more translated Chinese than English. Which is kinda funny for a "Jason and Amanda" from Texas.

    In any case, I looked into your account. Here are some interesting details for all to read:

    - you generated 9 leads on 25 clicks on 4 high-paying leads
    - these 9 leads came from 6 distinct IP addresses
    - a good portion of these leads came from browsers you were using
    - the rest of your traffic was sent to our geo-filtered campaigns
    - your "good" 25 clicks came from blatantly obvious fake blogs with below-the-fold banners
    - massive chunks of your geo-redirected clicks come from the same blocks of IP addresses

    For those unaware, the above details point to one thing. The affiliate was either filling out the leads himself and/or incenting people to fill out the leads and then trying to hide it with cheaply purchased bulk traffic.

    "Jason"/"Amanda" you are pure fraud. Let me "wrap" this up by stating that your MaxBounty account has now been terminated.

    For the rest of you reading this note carefully that MaxBounty never has, and never will shave leads. We've been in business for 7 years, and we've been recently ranked 5th in the top 20 affiliate networks in the world by Revenue Performance magazine (http://mthink.com/bluebook/top20/cpa). This ranking was based heavily on input from affiliates like you. We would not have succeeded this long or built the good reputation we have by screwing affiliates.

    Of course, anyone committing fraud on our network might think differently.

    This doesn't prove anything. If everybody goes by your logic then each and everybody has to use custom built browsers.

    It´s so weird that u guys came into bhw, when u see someone post a thread like this.. Isn´t it. Even "MaxBountyMike" was registering at this forum. I guess he couldn´t post s so he phoned up "MaxSteve" to protect their company with a reply..

    It´s so .. yeah ... u can call it whatever!
    And this talk that we don´t shave, we don´t scrub bla bla. Yeah u got proof? Show us?
