    Hey guys, as I posted other forums about this matter I am here to warn you about LeadBolt?s Fraud and they are not reliable about anything. You remember old school when someone banned you at the end of the month so they can revoke all your earnings of whole month? well here what happened and I have proof that Leadbolt is a fraud and Scaming people like us.

    I worked on leadbolt for like 4 or 5 months and I was earning 2k+ month but on last month (29 Nov 2011) I tried to logged in my account and I got this message ?Your account is suspended. Please contact customer service. ?



    So I did contacted support of leadbolt and here is all the ticked detail and what I wrote:



    Code:

      [SIZE=2]Hello, when i tried to log in today it says ?Your account is suspended. Please contact customer service."
    Please tell me what i did wrong i always care about ToS of Leadbolt. if i did something wrong can you please describe me.[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]
    i am a really hard working man with spending more then 14 hours working hard on Leadbolt. because i am the only one in my family who support them. i would never want to get banned or get my earnings revoked. :-( [/SIZE] [SIZE=2]
    i am very sad and really waiting for your kind reply.[/SIZE] 
      
    They did not answer me anything and I contacted my account manager Brian Tippy on Skype. Guess what he said? He said he don?t know why my account is banned and he cannot investigate it its not in his privileges here is chat detail.




    Code:
    [SIZE=2]Me: Brian you there ?[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: what can i help with?[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Me: i am a very hard working person i really follow LeadBolt's ToS but my account is suspended[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Me: :([/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: you will have to take this up with our support team[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: support{at}leadbolt(dot) c om[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2][Me: i did email em cc to you but can you please give me some favour on this :( i really work more then 16h a day and Leadbolt is my best source to feed my family here in my country. atleast anyone could give me a warning on something. if i really did something wrong so i can really make it right by a warning or something like this :([/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Me: its not that am whining infront of you but believe me i really depend alot on Leadbolt and work hard.[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: again, this is not something at my discretion[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: please consult with support, if you have a VALID argument as to why this is an incorrect suspension then our support team will investigate[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: otherwise fraudulent traffic poses a severe risk to our network[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]Me: alright i have to wait for a reply. thanks Brian[/SIZE]
      
    After 3 days I went back to my ticked to support team and its status were closed no one replied so I opened status again and posts this request

      [SIZE=2]Brian Tippy: but again, you need a more descriptive explanation as to why your traffic is legitimate[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]] Me: alright thanks man[/SIZE]

      [SIZE=2]hello, my account is suspended due to unknown reason i already logged a complain about it about 7 days ago and no one is replying for it.[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]i don't know what i did something wrong that my whole months struggle revoked and even no one is replying me. my traffic was legit i can prove that.[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]all my sites were getting approved without any problem and my procedure of gaining traffic is legit which i can explain to any moderator or someone who banned my account.[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]please don't revoke my account i have been working very hard on leadbolt. day and night to feed my family. if there's something wrong i can explain everything. but no one is contacting me or replying to my ticket.[/SIZE]
      [SIZE=2]i know it looks very non professional to ask like this but believe me i am totally depending on leadbolt revenue to feed my whole family here in Pakistan. i know its nothing that you people have to worry about but please have a look at my request i am in very much tension and waiting for a kind reply.[/SIZE]
      
      [SIZE=2]i can explain everything and anything but i really dont know what it took support to suspend my account.[/SIZE]
      
    But they never replied its been about one whole month that my account is banned suspended and they even didn?t let me know why my 2k+ earnings were revoked even I am offering them to give them every legal traffic proof and all.
    I would attach all the screenshots but i cannt post images in this thread.
    I would like to warn you people that Never work on Leadbolt they are big fraud and if any of Leadbolts support member or admin is reading this post you can contact me any time that I know you wont coz you all are liars and frauds.

    Really sorry mods if this matter already posted before or its in the wrong section
    Forgive my English

    Earn Safe and Never Work on Leadbolt.

    Weird, I've never had any troubles with LeadBolt. I'd love to see both sides of the story. Although in your case, their support is looking pretty shitty. Are you positive your traffic wasn't breaking one of their ToS? Completely positive?

    OK, so if you have legit traffic, and you suspect they banned you to keep your hard earned monies, then why are you offering them your traffic sources as well? As the cherry on top?.

    Also, with legit traffic sources, what's keeping you from moving on to another CPA network?. On to the next one, don't look back.

    They always pay me on time and I use them on a few sites. Don't know why this is happening to you though. Did you piss them off in any way? Try calling them directly.

    LeadBolt has been doing this for awhile, but it's just not widely reported. Even I want to see their explanation for this.

    This is pretty standard advice but a lot of people don't take precaution. Advertising networks can suspend you any time without warning the second they see something suspicious and seeing as this is a blackhat forum we are relatively more likely to produce suspicious stats for the network. There are several ways to make sure that you get your payment from the company. The one I use is that everytime I sign up on a new network, I stop using it a week before my first payment, this way even I was doing something that I was not suppose to, they will not be able to see it because a lot of networks tend to suspend you a few days before your payment because they're gigantic cock sucking faggots.

    Another thing you have to consider is that you never put all your eggs in one basket. This gets said a lot around here yet not a lot of you take this advice given to you. If you got approved for one agency then its likely that you will also be approved for another one. I make sure that I'm with atleast 5 networks at anytime and that they are rotated. For example, I'm currently with 5 CPA networks and I make sure that they are rotated randomly. This allows me to spread my income across 5 networks and even if two networks suspend me thats only 40% loss and I still get my payment from 3 networks.


    My last and final point I should mention is that you should always stay in touch with your affiliate managers, talk to them for 5mins a day. If you're unsure about something, e-mail and ask them!

    In conclusion, make sure that you spread your income around different networks, take precaution and stay in touch and up to date with your affiliate managers. I have been with leadbolt for a while now and I have had no problems. Why? because I don't mind spending 2 minutes to ask my affiliate manager questions and get information!

    You should definitely switch to other content unlocking providers. What type of traffic did you run to their content unlocker? We don't allow illegal copyright material to be promoted under our unlocker. Normally that's the cause of other networks not paying up.

    Lead Bolt is ass!

    1. Why does their support even come on AIM if they don't even reply?
    2. If they have to manually verify peoples content locks why do they ban people? isn't it their responsibility to see what content of the site was?

    Lead bolt have crap rates anyway. I use Adscend Media for my WH stuff and I must say they are good.

    I also run a PPD network: www.uploadpay.com

    You'll get better rates there than leadbolt.

    LeadBolt is scam for sure. they suspended my account without any given reason. At the time my account was suspened, I had not generated any leads. I had just earn only some dollars from my referals. But when I talked with Brian Tippy on Skype, he said my traffic was bad. That's very funny. I told him I didn't send any traffic, my money was from referals. He said he would look into my account to solve it but then he disappeared. LeadBolt is scam. Keep away from them! I also noticed that their two Skype accounts Brian and Mike are used by a same people :)
