    I've been getting alot of offers lately to run JV in CPA accounts. The person usually states I provide the networks, and they provide the revenue. Now I don't want to get banned from any networks or get in any trouble, so I'm wondering if anyone around here has had any positive or negative experiences with this.

    When I ask why they don't just make their own and keep 100% the answer is usually "its blackhat." Well isn't most stuff on here blackhat and people seem to be making money? Also if your banned, what's the worst that can happen, I'm guessing your at risk of not getting approved for other sites. I thought about fraudulent leads via credit cards but this shouldn't be an issue because if its net30 they'll have time to review the stuff and if the lead doesnt turn out in the back end then the person shouldn't expect to get paid anyways if use doing fraudulent leads.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    And how much risk is involved/does this sound legit?

    Have you gotten paid yet? I mean I understand their using blackhat. But the question of why there not doing it themselves really bothers me.

    I just started using them last week. They seem to promise using a majority of white hat traffic. Like only 10% bh. Still waiting for results.

    The main risk with making your network accounts available for JV's to other people is having your account banned. There are three side effects to this:

    - you will never be able to get another account with the network from which you were just banned. While there are hundreds of CPA networks available, if you lose one of your accounts with a top-tier network, you might regret it as you'll no longer have access to their campaigns and typically higher rates.

    - If you have your own traffic mixed in with the blackhat traffic being provided by your JV partner and your account is banned, you lose all revenue including the revenue you generated on your own.

    - If you happen to get into a situation where you are paying your JV partner before you get paid, and your account is banned, you will never recover that money.

    What convinces most people to go into a JV is greed, nothing more. Making decisions based on greed is short-sighted and could lead to things you'll regret.

    Remember always that there is no "code of ethics" for people who come to this board. While the majority of people here will not screw over their fellow affiliate, there are some that will. They come here, screw a few people over, then disappear forever (or come back with a new handle). While you always have to be careful of who you do business with, you should be especially careful of doing those who intentionally break rules to generate their traffic. They typically have no reason to treat you any better than they would the networks from which they've already been banned.
