    I am currently studying business law, as far as i know an agreement can be oral as well in this case if they have a chat log that proves that OP agreed upon the terms then they can sue him.

    It depends. If your leads were legit then yes you aren't responsible, but if they are fake or let's say "not that legit" you are(could be) commiting fraud, because you agreed to provide legit leads.
    Anyway I think first you should ask them for proof to see that your leads weren't good. If they can't provide proof then there isn't really anything to talk about.
    Did they say what % from the leads werent good, or it's all the leads?
    It's a bit worrying that you are from the same country, so I suggest you really take this serious and if necessary search legal advice from a professional.

    lol say whatever you want. You agreed to a TOS when you signed up and I can almost guarantee that TOS included language along the lines of "we reserve the right to take legal action to cover any damages caused by shithead pub's fraudulent activity or any violations of this agreement."

    So yeah... you really should talk to a lawyer if your being threatened with civil action and not seek legal counsel from an internet forum.

    Honestly, this is how legal suits go...if he paid you 10k then more then likely he wont sue you why? because it will cost him all of 10k in legal fees and litigation to sue, however if he paid 50k-100k then u might get your ass handed to you it's worth suing you for. however if his wife, uncle or cousin is a Attorney and won't charge him a dime for legal counsel then u might still get your ass handed to you...its all about the owners resources and how much is worth his time, also even if he sued you and turned around and sued you for legl fees he still might not ever see those legal fees depending on your assets and how broke or rich you are.

    But normally if someone says there gonna sue you they never do the people you need to watch is the ones that say this "My attorney will be contacting you and please cease all communication with me" when someone says that...that's your ass!

    Is it me or is the OP really dodging some of these questions?

    We can't help you unless you want to help yourself. I'm not going to judge your work, but you're making it seem shady just by your lack of disclosure alone.

    And to the guys that needs a bot: There's a reason you can't PM. And one of those reasons happens to be because it avoids things like this from happening, except in our inbox's.

    Might want to change that to "sent him the required amount of leads"*

    Wording is very powerful :)

    I love the proliferation of all these shady threads from shady characters around here.

    Typical shady poster:
    "HAY GUYZ, I LIKE WAS SUPPOSED TO DELIVER SERVICES TO SOMEONE BUT THEY DIDN'T LIKE THE WORK SO I JUST KEPT THE MONEY! THEIR FAULT, RIGHT? THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT DEALING WITH PEOPLE LIKE ME IS RISKY.... LOLZ! DO YOU THINK THEY WILL SUE?"

    Typical response:
    "Um, you look pretty damn guilty. You have a reputation for swindling others, and I wouldn't leave you alone with my cheapest silverware. You should go hide out somewhere before someone breaks your kneecaps."

    :lmao:

    I love BHW... if you're not learning about making money, you're usually getting a few laughs out of the deal.

    well, i guess how could they ordered your leads without testing lmfao. And why they didn't tell you to stop in between when they detected your leads are worthless/fake/false? They should have acted immediately and would have asked you return refund. if ya telling a true story then you can defend easily.

    That sounds an awful lot like blaming the victim to me. "The victim should have figured out that he was being swindled earlier! They didn't, so they 'deserve' to lose their money!" Believe me, that line of reasoning is *not* going to hold any water in a civil or criminal court case. I as a plaintiff would be overjoyed to hear the defendant say something like "they should have stopped me when they learned the leads were fake"... it would certainly guarantee a settlement in my favor.

    The whole idea is, if you don't deliver goods or services that are promised, especially if it is in writing (I'm sure there is a series of emails related to this), then you better give the money back to the aggrieved party before it is taken from you plus interest, plus a hit to your reputation. To do otherwise is fraud. There are many, many consumer protection laws that ensure this. Be careful who you piss off or steal from -- people have been sent up the river for small eBay transactions that were deemed to be fraud... things like selling electronics and/or accessories and then only sending the box.

    They then claimed, "they should have read the fine print and understood they were only getting a box!" right before being sent to the pokey. It is funny how quickly "I don't think I'm doing anything wrong" can quickly become "But your honor, I didn't think I was doing anything wrong!"

    Better to cover your ass now than to have it belong later to a large black man named Barry, who will woo you like you've never been woo-ed before.

    Dude i aint a lawyer. i am a fellow affiliate to many cpa firms and companies. i have stated what i have experienced as an affiliate. Mostly firms dont take crap traffic. see for eg. i was in ppl program for a dating company and after i sent a bunch of ones i got a letter from them that since my leads aint converting to paid ones, they cant continue paying me. They advised me to continue as a pps affiliate or just quit. ..well i dont want to continue this convo much in hot manner coz yea in legal perspective things maybe different from my point of view!
