    Hi all,

    I really feel hesitate to write about this but i think I should inform people to know bout how Leadbolt had scammed my money.

    Last month, when I requested my first payment of nearly $200, I haven't received my payment. After few days, my account was suspended and I couldn't log in my account. I contacted their aff support but didn't received their reply.

    I was very upsad about them. I had thought they were a good and legit company but I was quite wrong. I did not anything fraud or against their TOS. I submitted my sites to them for a review and when they approved the sites, I use their provided codes to block my sites' contents.

    I had been working hard and building many blogs to bring in good traffics, almost all of the traffics are organic. I had managed to increase my commission to reach the 1st pay out after nearly 3 months. I even eliminated all the adsense codes and only concentrated on contents blocked only.

    But when I reached my 1st payment, they suspended my account without telling me a word!:( They did not send any email or message informing me about my acc's suspension. Even when I contacted them about my acc's suspension, they still keep silent!

    I had to search for their contact's info in the Internet and managed to contact them via AIM. One of their staffs told me that my money was fraud! It is very funny!

    I didn't do any thing fraud, why can they say I was doing fraud?
    I suppose they don't want to pay my hard money and just suspended my account and took my money away.

    Leadbolt is not a legit company/site. They are also not a professional company. A legit and professional company/site never do like that.

    I know they did pay some others members. But I'm one of their victims.

    Although it is not a big money for many people, even for me, but I'm very sad about them. I had put my believe on them and had intended to make a big money with them by building more blogs. But they crashed my plan.

    But I will not give up. I will work with other legit CPA companies like MaxBounty, Convert2Media,...

    If you are looking for content lockers then none can beat adscendmedia .Leadbolt has been mass banning accounts.Contact your AM he might be able to give a reason for suspension.

    We'll save having to go into another long-winded explanation of how our protocol works when it comes to suspending accounts. Please contact your AM regarding the suspension so that your particular situation can be addressed in a more professional manner.

    The word "scam" gets used quite liberally when referring to networks that are simply taking action when it comes to putting a stop to fraudulent activity that, ultimately, hurts other publishers as well.

    We can ensure you this is never done without a viable reason. Why? Because we know too well the predictable backlash that will result - forums, case in point. However, the need to keep our valuable advertiser relationships intact carries far more importance than having to address negative posts.

    So please contact your AM or our support team so that we can provide a clear explanation of your account status.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for your replying my thread. I could not log in my account so I don't know who is my AM. I did contacted one of the LBolt's staffs that is in this forum and he said I was predicted to do fraud (that mean I did the surveys/offers myself). But I'm 100% honest and didn't do anything fraud. I'm a serious marketer and I know how to generate traffics legally. I have 100+ micro sites and autoblogs that are bringing a lot of organic traffics and I'm very busy with my online business. I just used some of my blogs for Leadbolt to compare the contents-blocked's benefits with adsense' income.

    Your staff didn't provide any proofs or showed me a clear explanation about why my acc was suspended. It is really unfair if you just say I was doing fraud then suspended my acc.
    I'm expecting a more clear explanation about my case. If discussing in public forum may hurt your business, you can contact me via PM.

    In my opinion. They did not seem to care about yur business by suspending or locking your account without good reason on any reason what so ever (if what you say is true and your all whitehat) then there dirt should be discussed in public to prevent others from having to experience the same problems. "Predicted fraud" is pure speculation, assumption even. You tend to make an ass out of yourself when you assume things.

    If what you say is true and your totally whitehat then in my opinion there is nothing wrong with exposing them.

    I too did not receive my payment from the 1st (even though I requested it in the middle of last month), however, I did contact Brian (via chat) and he stated to me that if I do not receive it in the next 72 hours, then to contact him to take care of it.

    My traffic is completely legit (why would you want to risk getting banned from a company that would pay you to work with them? I know you can scam lots of money, but eventually, you get caught, so stay legit and hopefully everything will be fine.)

    WIth that said, I am not saying your traffic is not legit, but I did receive my first payment last month without any problems. So I am sure once you talk to them, they will take care of you. Just like I am sure Brian will take care of my account (I was not suspended, just didn't receive my payment).

    Everything I have read about Leadbolt has been nothing but good things. SO I hope it works out and I hope they communicate with you and fix the problem.

    I will keep everyone up to date on what Brian does with my payment mishap as well, and hopefully I (or anyone else) becomes "Milton" from Office space... LOL.

    Adscendmedia rocks in every sense. Just be true to them :)

    I have made nearly 70k with them.
