    Hi you all! I am a newbie here and everywhere, generally speaking!
    Two years ago I signed an affiliation for for AdultFriendFinder; never did significant money with that, it didn't matter what I tried to do to get VISITS/SIGN-UPS.
    Yesterday I discovered that my account was suspended. The message displayed was like that:
    "Affiliate Suspended
    You received this message because you were most likely directed to FriendFinder by one of our affiliates who was using marketing or advertising methods that are in violation of our Terms of Use and Affiliate Agreement.
    The person who directed you to our site has been banned from doing business with us. We apologize for any inconvenience that the offending activity may have caused."

    Anyone got thru same situation with AFF?
    Anyone got an idea of WHY I got suspended?
    Anyone knows if this "suspention/ban" will end just here or will be some other consequences? [trial or so...]

    Thank you!

    p.s. no trial,lol. Your jsut shut out of their network for something like stuffing or whatever. Unless you did something super shady like crack boxes and spam from them I wouldnt worry

    You signed up under a black hatter(through their affiliate link) who got caught so they assume you also are BH so they banned you.
    "Anyone knows if this "suspention/ban" will end just here or will be some other consequences? [trial or so...]"
    No, nothing to worry about, you didnt do anything wrong. Even if you did do something wrong, they would probably just not pay you instead of taking you to trial. You would have to screw them over for a LOT of money before they would take you to trial. No worries bro.

    cashuniversity is worthless. 20 bucks to scam some guy out of a cc number to lock him into a garbage subscription is something I am completely against. Why not use affiliates that pay 35 to 40 per sign up? Makes no sense to me. cashuniversity seems to be a trend on this board.

    @TheInternetHustler:
    Can you be MORE SPECIFIC about this, please:
    "You signed up under a black hatter(through their affiliate link) who got caught so they assume you also are BH so they banned you"?

    Thank you

    You didn't make $$$ because your traffic was shit lol

    If you have a good relation to your AM they'll ease you with the scrub. They'll still scrub, but not as much if you keep notifying them. And 130 USD payout vs. 30 USD (yes, the other networks scrub too) ...I know which to pick ;)
