    Early last year, as a noob, I joined my first affiliate network, CJ. I went into gmail, and spam the crap out of their offers.

    After I made like $500, I got ''the email'' from CJ, the ban email for UBE. After about a year, I suddenly got a letter in the mail from CJ-I thought it was a legal letter, coz I abused one of their merchants quite badly with spam(and this merchant is quite a prominent name in the financial industry)...

    After opening the letter, I saw it was a check-for $8... I was like WTF... CJ does pay spammers!! LOL

    lol what? My checks from CJ have a certain limit they have to reach before they pay ($100 I think), thought this was the standard...$8 check haha...kind of embarrassing to cash.

    That was from the class action suit settlement. That was NOT from your banned earnings.

    Just an update... I got a check for $200 the end of last year. The check was with only my initials and the bank refused to accept it. I decided to dump the check.


    My my found it. Called CJ and return the check back with a note saying that the name is wrong. I got an email from CJ. Activated my account, changed the Name, and got another check a few weeks later.

    The cheque just cleared with the bank...haha... spam does pay!
