    Hello,

    I've been doing some craigslist campaigns lately. Yesterday I did some replies where I included my affiliate link to an offer. This is what response I get from one dude:

    "OR how about I report you to your affiliate network for using CL traffic?"

    Damn. That is no good at all. What do I do now? Please help :yield:

    just scare him a lil bit,
    say him: you have all the knowledge to find out who he is and accidentally you know some tough guy that area or sg like that :)
    even if he doesn't believe every of your words, he afraids of reporting you definitely and maybe he won't do it

    sorry mate, but i haven't got any useful tips at the moment except of the above

    or just sit back, relax and hope he won't do it

    ohh, and blacklist his email address for the future!

    Take the ad down and tell him to prove it.

    Contact your AM and tell them that someone posted your affiliate link on CL and you are trying to get the ad flagged down.

    He is prob just another IMer. Your average JOE BLOW doesn't know enough to respond the way he did.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. If your AM calls you can do something then.

    Until that time comes learn from your mistake and relax.

    Goodluck

    Freak out, panic, and give him $5000 via PayPal and then do a chargeback a day later.

    I would suggest covering your tracks better in the future. Never have your affiliate link in an email or on a cl post. Buy a .com or .info and make a simple redirect. Get domainguard. Although it's still possible you could get busted, it makes it much less likely.

    ABSOLUTELY. I have my offer redirected with a .com domain but you could still spot the affiliate link.

    Maybe offer him a hand job, then tell him to go to thiscoolsite to register with your agency beforehand. tell him its a free handjob but he still has to enter his CC for verification.

    Then how about you stop the redirect on the domain right now, and set up on a new domain, so if he does go and report, he can't find your affiliate link again.
