    So when a networks scrubs, do you see it in your stats? Do you see it as a click but with no conversion or do they just hide everything?

    Basically what I want to know is if what my stats show is what I am supposed to get paid.

    Scrubbing is basically when you bring them terrible/fake leads so they take some of their money back. People don't seem to understand that.

    Ok. So let me get this right. If it say's that I made $100 this month they can go and take some of that money back?

    I had it all wrong. I thought scrubbing happened before showing up in your stats.

    You earnings can always be changed until they either print that check or deposit the money into your bank account. If you find a CPA network that you're not happy with just switch to a new one.

    They love making money off of you, they want to keep you around too, as long as you are good to them with bringing them quality leads they will generally be good to you.

    Pull some shady shit and expect flags to be raised.

    This is a blackhat forum so wouldn't the majority of the strategies here be considered "shady". Hope they don't try to pull this shit on payday.

    Well it would have been better to call it "pulling some dumb shit". Cause if you're new and you start bringing in tons of fake/blanked referrer leads than you're just asking for trouble. If you spend the time to do things right and to cover your tracks it pays off to do it right.

    TermsB :D you seems some BH hater lol ,but scrubbing means like you have list of people who did the offer and they have list who's email they already got. So they check it and if they already have the email you don't get credit :)

    So this scrubbing is done after it has already showed up on your stats?

    Could be yes or no, I'm sure your account manager would be able to answer you.


    I'm not a BH hater, I'm just not a fan of ignorant posts that I see all the time here from people who got greedy, rushed things and than got popped.

    Thanks. I won't exhaust this question anymore.

    I just feel funny asking questions like that to me AM. Seems like I am worried about the way I am sending traffic, which I am.
