    So I signed up for this co-branding dating site affiliate awhile back. Before I signed up I read all their fine print and noticed they had nothing in their tos about being converted to rev share if leads didn`t convert.

    I emailed them and asked about this, they emailed back and told me they didn`t convert people to rev ever. I thought it was strange but they paid $2 a sign up and I knew I could get a few hundred easily.

    So I bought a domain and they hooked me up and I started sending traffic. I got about 200 sign ups in a few days just before the pay period ended and they paid me no problem.

    So the next week I sent them 700 sign ups while working on other stuff. The night the pay period ended I got an email from them telling me they were`nt paying me and were very sorry but my traffic quality wasn`t up to par and i would be converted and get $68 bucks instead of $1400.

    I emailed back and sent them the email where i had asked about this before. They said that the person who gave me that response was wrong and should never have said that.

    I asked why they had not told me they were converting me earlier in the pay period. They said that I would have stopped traffic if they would have told me earlier.

    I was like wtf......I`d never heard responses so fucking stupid in my whole life.

    I sent them back an email telling them Id never heard such stupid fucking responses in my life. They emailed back saying they understood my frustration and anger.

    I said I dont think you do, but you sure as fuck will. I told them I owned the domain and would point it elswhere and continue promoting it to a page saying they were a bloated scam network and to stay away.

    They sent back an email saying if I used the domain in such a way, or for any other reason, they would sue me for bad action. I told them they could go fuck themselves.

    I took my domian from their name servers and pointed it to a page i created saying that they were a bloated scam network and stay the fuck away from them, then I listed every dating site affiliated with them.

    Remember, there were close to 2000 people signed up through this domain,so when they returned they would see my page not the site they had signed up at.

    Then i sent them another email telling them to check out the domain now. They did, they were pissed.

    The next day I got a call from someone who was supposedly the big guy at that network threatning me with a lawsuit. I laughed and told him to tongue my balls from behind. He hung up.

    I continued to get emails threatning me. I continued telling them to go fuck themselves and the domain was staying the way it was.

    Next day I got a call from a guy saying he was their lawyer and I better redirect the domain or I would be in court. I told him I didnt give a fuck, that I like court and looked forward to it. He said I would go to jail, i said good, i like jail, been there, I need the rest, and it gives me a chance to workout a lot. He was pissed. I told him to go fuck himself too. Then I told him if they paid me I would redirect the domain, otherwise fuckoff. He told me i was an unreasonable, uncouth, asshole. I siad I already knew all that. He hung up.

    I got another email from them saying they would pay me. I siad ok, when I got paid i would take the domain down and let it expire quietly.

    They paid me a couple days later. Check cleared, all is well.

    bravo my friend. I think this should almost be a standard that these companies should recognize. Its like the whole battle with government vs people....the government should be scared of the people not the other way around. Companies like this need to be taught a lesson. I can think of a few more myself.

    Way to go man! I guess regardless of whether they could get you in trouble in court - its always going to be cheaper for them to just pay you what they owe. Trying to prosecute you would cost them a fortune.

    This is good stuff man. Im glad that not everyone simply bends over for these bastards. When you have an agreement it is so annoying when the other end doesn't uphold their side of the bargain.

    Good on ya for getting your dues.

    Whoa didnt know what to expect with the title of thread........

    Good on ya for standing up and not letting them screw you out of earnings. Too often they to intimidate and hide behind legal threats they know they cant follow thru on.

    They should train their staff properly how to answer support emails or hire someone new that can provide the correct info.

    A true victory for the little guy to keep on fighting for what is theirs :)

    I hear people complain when they get converted to rev share on dg, aff, and other networks, its in their tos to begin with. Ive been converted on all of them and could care less because I know it's coming at some point.

    But these fucking idiots were unbelievable I tell you. What were they thinking???? I own the fucking domain. it's like trying to steal from someone with a gun to your head. If it would have been in the tos I wouldnt have said a word. I would have counted my self lucky on the first payout. And collected my measly 60 bucks on the second and moved on.

    that's cool, trust me it soothed my soul to read this, just lucky it wasn't a CPA network, something must be done about the bad sheep, they think they can just bully and not pay

    Yeah, it depends though. I mean if its in their tos that they will convert you then there's not much use in fighting it.

    LOL I suppose that IS the preferred method. You should start a service: complaint-dept.com. We pay you so we can redirect all offending domain issues to you. How much do you want? :)
