    Just sign up to one of my AC accounts, to find that "my account is suspended and under review of violations of user agreement", 2 days ago I had over $450 made almost only by perfomance views, AC Perfomance Booster + Spamming forums and Yahoo Answers.

    I've been "working" for this amount almost for a entire month and now I lost it all, my month is ruined....:yell::yell:

    What you need to do now, is figure out what you did to flag AC.

    I had tons of referral sites, I always double check my proxies and I'm almost very careful, I honestly don't know what went so bad, I'm beginning to think that it's time to say goodbye to AC forever, the matter is that aside from writing articles, I have no experience or knowledge in any other field.

    I'm thinking between E-Whoring or PPC, which one is easier to master and pays faster?

    I'd say e-whoring generally pays faster, PPC is insanely hard to get right let alone master. e-whoring is a lot easier to start as it generally costs nothing but time.

    I meant, should I be worried about future consequences to my paypal account, as well as some legal consequences, although I always used proxy to connect to AC, my paypal account has my home name and address, since they claim they will exchange info with paypal, should I be worried about a possible suspension of my paypal account as well as some legal prosecution?

    well thats actually good news. they banned you for your articles and not peformance boosting. You made a bad mistake in not using original articles, you would have your money.

    My AC account was filled with fake info, but the paypal account linked to it has my real info, that's my main concern, in the event of paypal shares my real info with AC, can they do anything to me, even if I'm not from the U.S.?

    Yeah, I just figured that out, some weeks ago I submitted some 20 articles for upfront payment from a source which seemed to me that wasn't indexed with any search engine, they paid me something like $70 for all of them, they must have found out about my source by some other means (maybe someone else is using it) that's my judgment at least.

    As much as it hurts me to say this, what's lost is lost, but now I only want to be able to sleep at night knowing that I won't suffer any legal consequences.

    Can they prosecute users outside the U.S. (I'm from Europe), can paypal share my personal info and IP address with them or the only thing paypal can really do is ban me? (and even this will be a pain in the ass, I'm currently expecting payment for a couple of users for my freelance work to that paypal account)

    The way i see it is this;

    You never have the $450 so you didn't lose it. But, that being said, i know how much it sucks when you think you're gonna get paid and you don't.

    Although, if you're able to make $450/month with AC, why not try blogging? Seems like you're able to do like 5 articles a day. If they're good quality, and you do 1 a day on 5 blogs, you could make some easy money further down the line.

    Once they're established, just set them up as auto blogs and you're away!

    And what would be the source of my income, Adsense?

    And also, can anyone clear me out on the questions of my previous post, please?

    I was suspended a couple of weeks ago too but i didnt have any earnings. You should make another account and give it another go just be more careful this time. Sometimes this type of work involves alot of trial and error.

    My personal opinion is Adsense sucks! There are so many other things you could do to monitize your site. Affiliate links to digital products through Clickbank or paydotcom.com or CPA offers. I just heard the Clickbank now provides Adsense type ads to put on your site. Very cool!!

    Bottomline is there are a number of ways to monetize a site. Just read some of the numerous forum threads here to get more ideas.
