    My MaxBounty account was recently banned for fraud.

    What I did was that I iframed their offers and blanked the referer.

    I understand that only getting hits froom referer.us might be suspicious and reason to ban but not with the exscuse "fraud", so I think they found my site.

    1. Anyone have an idea on why they banned me for fraud, not suspicous traffic?

    2. If I use CPAdirector and then iframe the wordpress page, will CPA companies bust my ass then?

    Fraud just means not promoting legitimately and following the TOS. There is also something called an iFrame breaker which allows them to break through frames.

    iFrames seem really unsafe to me, no matter what tools you are using. I have never had troubles but i have only ever faked the ref.

    I do not believe that iframe would be an issue if you use it for OpenX ads.

    Using 3rd party referer or shortener such as referer.us is not good as everyone is using it.

    Why don't you use your own referer such as yourls org which should work pretty well.

    Was it the $2.10 email submit dish network offer? I got banned for iframing that one and I know others have too. Prolly some trap but it's tempting because if the double pay of a regular email submit and high epc.

    It is fraud when you're iFraming an offer to make people believe they're signing up for a service/product while in fact it is completely different. You do double damage because of the untargetted traffic, so the advertiser will look into your promotional methods. Give them some OK traffic to play with if you keep on iFraming :rain:
