    Hey guys,

    last month i earned $500 by doing some ewhoring stuff. I was promoting a pay-per-lead > free signup which is $7 per lead.

    The partner of this free signups confirmed all the leads and at the end of the month i was at $500 just for sending some guys the free signup link.

    After every month the CPA Network itself reviewing the earned money(basiclly they doublecheck) and 1 week ago they sent me a mail that because sometimes the same IP's doubleclicked on my link, which is fraud and they will delete my account if i can't tell them why

    I have no clue why some IP's double or triple clicked my link, maybe it was me to check if anything is working correctly :D

    My question: Is it really THAT simple to suspend my account just because some IP's triple clicked my link? i mean..im not advertising a pay-per-click offer, so it wouldn't matter for them?

    Thanks for your support!

    Ask the why would it matter if there wasn't multiple leads from same ip . Maybe they just want some reason not to pay and keep the money

    It seems to me as if the company is trying to get free leads and save money anyway possible. Why do I say this?

    Because it is verrry possible for someone to click a link several times from the same IP address. In fact, I am sure it happens all the time. Why does it happen? Because people like to second guess themselves after they sign up for something online, they like to go back and see what exactly they signed up for... they want to refresh their memory on what to expect.. they wanna make sure there was no fine print that is gonna make them pay at a later date (especially true for "free" and "trial" offers)... sometimes they might just want to look at a picture of the hot chick on the offer page again. There are a ton of reasons why someone could go back to the sign up link that you provided them. There may be several people in the same household that wants to sign up with the same offer... the list goes on...

    The point is.. you said that they stated it was only "a few times"... this to me indicates that they are being a bit stingy with their payouts and that they are not a reputable network. A well established company would not blink at sending out a check for $500 measly bux, especially not on the grounds that the same IP's clicked your links a few times....

    The real question is.. did the same IP's fill out your offers a few times? If thats the case then they have good reason to suspend you as this seems kind of fishy. People may clcik a link several times, but the chances of several different people inadvertently filling out an offer more than once from the same IP is very slim.. especially with such a small sales volume.

    If I were you i would give them a rundown of all of the reasons why someone might click the link twice. Assure them you're not comiting fraud. Ask them if the same Ip filled out an offer more than once on more than one occasion.. and then if they do not pay you and it seems like they're being stingy.. come back here to BHW and let people know how terrible they are lol... that is unless they are a well established network. IN which case people will have no choice but to give them the benefit of the doubt. ...

    Let us know what happens!

    I call bullshit. So basically they're saying that if Joe Blow at ip xxx.xx.xxx clicks on your link more than once they won't pay you?

    First thing is you call your am at the crappy affiliate network you're with and tell them that they are going to get sued if they don't pay. One guy clicks on a link, spends a day or so thinking about joining, then clicks again and signs up and they call it fraud? Tell them to get their heads out of their asses, they probably shaved half your leads anyway. Don't let this go, be firm but professional (okay, so maybe you don't threaten a lawsuit....yet).

    Who is this network? Don't tell me it's hydra.

    Hey guys,
    thanks for all the responses.

    The CPA Network im talking about is Affilinet and its the biggest CPA Network in Germany. As far as i know none of the same IP's signed up but unfortunately i can't review that cuz theres no option in the Backend for that. Only thing i can see is the Clicks. I already sent them an email 1 week! ago and you know what? No response yet at all! Very bad support it seems...:(

    I guess they just wanna save money and that's some sort of modern method for just keeping their money. I've uploaded a Clickstat February 17th. As you can see some guy clicked several times on the link but who cared? Im not promoting Google Adsense! :D

    That's some serious BS man. If you can't get it sorted out, come back on here with the title "Affilinet Scam" on a thread -- see if Google picks it up ;)

    totally bs like been said above a few times, but your chances are not too good to get paid, especially if your network decided not paying you, why? if you pushed bh traffic and you didn't cover your tracks properly they may find another reason which is closer to the truth to ban and not paying you
    yes, you can try threatening them with lawsuit, but if it doesn't help, are u really want to do this for only $500?
    tell them you're not a newbie in IM and they have to give you an acceptable reason why they don't want to pay you, because this is totally bullshit and see what happens
    honestly, you have nothing to loose...i hope i'm wrong, but i'd say from what you wrote, your $500 is already gone...

    no, it isn't
    scamming is a very old well known method using by the networks against harmless affiliates (you) lol to rip them off

    Now i have also been scammed by Affilinet Gmbh, after 1 month, after leads were approved, they cancelled them. The new leads of past month were all removed if they never existed.
    Btw, these were all whitehat sites & traffic: all organic traffic.
    F*!

    If you didn't get the same IP to fill in another off than they're just scamming you. Also they could find you fishy if you have a high conversion rate. Some companies know the analytical statistics to these sort of thing like e-whoring.
