    So now after all this SOAP and PIPA shit companies like facebook went ahead and suing affiliate networks for ad scam. Time to move from these networks before FBI knock your doors.

    The ones who thinks they are International affiliate's and facebook and other companies can't do a shit. that is not the case here as you might have recently seen how megaupload's owner Kim got sued even he was not in US.

    Oh well i haven't done any FB with them but this will probably Give some problems for them in the future or end the network. Hope it won't be anytime soon though.

    The allegations are pretty shit though.

    @ OP -

    Based on your incredible insight and analysis of this news story, I highly you'll be making enough $ with CPA for the FBI to give a shit what you're up to. The FBI won't be coming after you for making $10k a year spamming FB offers, especially seeing as you're not in the US.

    I wish they should not come after anyone but you might have heard the story of affiliates working with Copeac lately. and about 10K a year for each affiliate this is how they makes millions and this is how they are charged for the whole amount and traffic they send by their networks as after-all the ones who send traffic are the real spammers not the networks itself.

    I guess you forgot to type "doubt". Don't worry I haven't made a single penny with CPA ;)

    I wonder are those numbers from article (1+ million per month, 20 per year) profit or just earnings of all publishers..

    Adscend is in top 10 CPA networks. They are professional enough, I think they will sort it out. After all, they can afford the best lawyers too, not only Zuckerberg.

    @OP and Others - Correct me if Iam wrong, but Kim was arrested because those guys had some servers in the States also, which gave FBI the legal right to take action against them.

    If you are making money hand over fist like Kim Dotcom, Get a lawyer.

    Earning less? = proceed with what you are doing.

    If i where you i would have done it rite away just to be safe side.
    I dont think FBI will come sue all the affilates or members of adscend media, this would be ridiculous if they do.

    not everyone on affiliate marketing is doing facebook I will say a small few are actually doing it and that number become alot smaller of the people who are doing it and making numbers to make people think twice. Only people who should worry about is those who lifestyled changed cause of the earning they made with cpa+some FB viral script and Adscend media them self cause even though they probably have nothing to worry about going thru the litagation and cost and put a damper on their funds and they may revoke earning from people for the slightest reason and build a bad reputation sort of in the way cpa lead went down.

    I earned 200 this month, making me 200 usd. Last month I got 300 usd.
    I can either cashout the 300 on the 30th this month, then the 200 I made this month I will cashout next month.

    This will be by paypal, as wire is 500.

    If I dont do that^ I will wait till next month to get all of the $$(500) in wire next month.

    lol
