    Congrats :p

    But would say one thing, dont screw around with them right away and be very careful and meticulous if you wanna keep your account. They will ban you at the drop of a hat, Just so ya know :)

    Be careful. These lowlife mother fuckers banned me yesterday after I've been sending them the exact same traffic for 8 months.

    Shitty network imo.

    Edit: also, they decided to ban me on the 26th of Feb when I had $400+ racked up in comissions. Go figure. Assholes.

    I wanna see maxsteve come on here and pwn 420. I never get calls from MB anymore seems, they just wanna focus on the big fish, after you get approved.

    But yea anyway copeac calls me ALL THE TIME, its like god damn it I do other things, other than promote just your network.

    Lets see MaxSteve come pwn me. Fucker owes me over $400...I'm sure he's enjoying it by purchasing some large black dildos.

    They banned me for fraud....I have been sending them the exact same traffic for the past 8 months, and then they just now decided it was fraud.

    There was nothing fraudulent about my traffic, though. They've managed to pay me lots of cash before this, they just suddenly don't like me all of a sudden. My traffic is legit, and other networks have no problems with it.

    Time to move on to other networks. Fuck MaxBounty.

    yea im sure they dont ban on a whims notice, obviously not every person will convert, but when a high percentage of your traffic isnt converting, why would you continue to pay someone for it. I mean think about the steps they take, in order to decide on a ban/fraud.

    Traffic is sent, offer is filled.
    your credited for the lead.
    advertiser notices 10 converts for 100 payed leads.
    advertiser talks to MB, MB looks at your account history, maybe contacts other advertisers.
    Decision to continue letting you send bad/fraudulent traffic, in hopes of it converting. Not a chance. Its money my friend and if they dont make it, you dont make it.

    Id say all in all just do shit straight up the right way, or send your fraudulent traffic and make as much bank as you can under the radar and for as little time as possible, then cash out and peace out. my .02

    My traffic obviously had been converting for the past 8 months since they were paying me. Why would it suddenly not convert now? It's the same damn traffic.

    I know a few months ago they were happily accepting affiliates from Europe, not sure what the current situation is though.

    Home Page:
    Banning has nothing to do with conversion. Nor does it have anything to do with how long you've been running on the network without getting caught. We ban affiliates for delivering fraudulent leads.

    You want to use invalid iframes on our offers? You want to use a CL fake job or apartment scam? You want to fill out your own offers? Maybe incentivize campaigns that don't allow it. Go ahead, but know that you are basically playing russian roulette with your account. You might not get caught now, you might not get caught tomorrow, but you never know when that bullet will be in the right chamber and your account will get banned.

    I don't know what specifically happened with 420's account as I can't match up handles to affiliate accounts, but my guess is that he was misrepresenting an offer (maybe with a fake job ad). Nothing that could be easily caught, but one day some pissed off surfer got angry enough to complain to the merchant and guess what? Shit flows downhill.

    Steve: Do you guys have a spotlight like Batman on the roof of Maxbounty HQ? Every time someone claims that MB screwed them, you show up instantly. :D

    No, hes just lurking the forum all day what else do you think those AM's do. We/Us Affiliates do all the work and get a kick under the ass if we don't do it properly ;)

    A. I was making a light remark.

    B. He's not an AM, he owns the network. I'm sure he's got better things to do than lurking all day. ;)
