    Hi!
    I saw an offer I wanted to promote, the landing page looks so good from the provided screenshot, so I tried to access this landing page but keeps redirrecting me to another page not related with the offer.
    It is an US offer but am not from the US, so I used a VPN.

    I need help from someone in the US to help me access this link, just to be sure before contacting my AM
    Network name is P*erfly
    Thanks..

    Its most like the offer link knows you're not from US, that's why showing you a different URL.
    Also, make sure that the offer is for the device you are accessing it from. For example, if it's a mobile offer and you're accessing from a computer, it would take you to a different page.

    That happened to me a ton and I only found out that advertisers use that to cut your earnings as well as making an extra buck from your efforts.

    Thanks for your reply. I've always been checking landing pages with VPN without any problem but this was an exception. :(

    They don't want publishers to cheat, so why should they cheat as well.

    I sent a mail to my AM already, waiting for her reply.

    You are too naive bro.

    Look, networks will do whatever they can to screw anyone for money.

    Read my thread here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-main-problem-with-cpa-offers-and-cpa-networks.850415/

    You can see I was credited for 2/3 of the leads I sent, and that percentage was consistent.

    Keep your eyes up mate.
