    On the 13th, they banned me without even telling me, I had to find out from contacting my aff manager, who directed to the correct contact e-mail for the no-reason ban; got 1 reply from them, sent a number of e-mails back trying to get a responce, 15th came, where I was meant to be sent $180+ - Never recieved the money, spent $100 or so in PPC with facebook/adsence, contacted Steve on here, added him on MSN, no reply at all, yet he's been on BHW in this time, still no reply from them.

    Fuck You MaxBounty

    The AM's get paid to dick around like they don't know you. They get paid to help their customers, not people who are banned.

    So once you are banned, they don't need to work with you - that's how I see it.

    So yes, shit service.

    My AM is never on and probably doesn't even know I exist.

    Well 1stly: MB did the same to me, still to this day I want to know why, no answer.

    2ndly, going by your previous record of cheating, they caught you out and banned you.

    Find another network.

    @Slasher, me and my aff manager spoke on a nearly daily basis regrading leads, campigns etc, they knew what I was doing the whole time and infact gave me some tips on promoting.

    @KnoxGates, I have, no reply.

    @WelshMan, I wasn't running anything BH with MB.

    @Ipodtouchhackerisher, facebook isn't BH.

    @KimKills, blanking refs threw my own gateway, so I had a log of where my traffic was coming from, I prefer to use google analystics on a page which just redirects to the CPA offer. I wasn't promoting any iFramed leads. :/

    I'm positive I wasn't, even if I was, my aff manager knew what I was promoting and how, they would of said something if they didn't allow social media traffic

    ... Seriously? You jumped in not knowing to blank/fake your ref? And even made upwards of $2,000? Wow.

    A lot of the people making a lot of money, don't bother to learn the basics until it's too late.

    OP was not "buying PPC". He used GodCPA/Cakeslice or some other iframing tool and got caught and subsequently banned. Anyone who has read threads from me here knows MB's position on iframing the submit area of an offer.

    Facebook/social media traffic is perfectly fine with us. Too bad the OP didn't really do that.

    Oh so your able to reply publiclly to defend Max Bounty? Yet you seem to simply delete any simple e-mail/private-message I sent you/Max Bounty? Very professional of you.

    Obviously if I was running campaigns which used godcpa - I wouldn't mind being banned, although GODCPA blanks/fakes the reffer to start with, it's not hard to do the same with CakeSlice.

    You won't even tell me what offer I was apparently 'iframing'?

    The referrer was not FB. The referrer was a page that when loaded, showed the submit area of an offer in a small iframe in the middle of the page.

    All of campigns I ran with Max bounty had a blank referrer, I know this for fact because all the traffic I drove to Max Bounty offers went threw my own gateway, which had google analytics's on it - If you really must know, it was so I was able to track the traffic myself.

    If Steve said that he was iframing I doubt the referer was from FB. I've dealt with MB before and they're reasonable guys. They don't need to or want to go ripping people off - trust me, they could've done it to me for alot of cash, with a good reason too, but they didn't. Seriously, its only 180$, why in God's name would any company rip someone off for such little money and risk being exposed as a scam

    iFraming screws over the advertiser, the network, so naturally the affiliate should be screwed over to. This is the one thing on this forum I really disagree with, mostly because it ruins network wide eEPC rates and causes advertisers to scrub more, which screws over the honest affiliates too.

    I am here with OP's argument.Steve, why is it that more and more people complain about MB, then any other company??How are you so sure that OP Iframed the offers??BTW OP has proof too that, he Blanked the REFs completely.

    Steve : I create Iframes without leaving any trails behind, so do your Best to Nail guys who came to me for Iframing MB's offers ;)

    For the last time, the referrer for ALL THE TRAFFIC I SENT TO MAX BOUNTY was BLANKED. I totally agreed with you until this happened, I thought MaxBounty was a brilliant company up until this, I'm pretty sure you'd be pissed if you invested $100 in a WHITE HAT campign, then was screwed over by the CPA company a day before you were expecting your money back.

    - You were e-mailed on Wednesday, Aug 12th 2:50pm EDT, notifying you that you were banned for fraud.

    - You were e-mailed again on Wednesday, Aug 12th at 6:13pm EDT explaining that your account was banned for iframing and one of the violating URL's was given to you. This was a reply to an e-mail received from you.

    There really isn't much else to say and no need to reply to IM's. You were iframing the submit area of an offer. This is not grey area stuff that I might have misunderstood. You were defrauding the offer.

    BTW, I wasn't the one who took this public. You started this thread.
