    Hi,


    I have been reviewing different BH tactics regarding CPA promotions. I know that if you don't cover your tracks you risk your affiliate relationship (i.e. getting banned from the network). However, what I am more concerned about is the legal issues revolving this; in other words, would they be able to sue, or file criminal charges.
    I must tell you that I will not be spamming, however, the best methods i came about were using iframe slices (godCPA and the sorts) or locking websites to force offers (BHcodebreaker). The promotion would be through CL, video marketing, and PPC (maybe forums too). Since I couldn't find any similar cases on the net or here, i though i should ask the community before embarking on this journey. I look very forward to your answers.

    I was wondering the same thing. Not sure if I want to get screwed for spamming.

    I was thinking of promoting in forums, but the problem is how do you post a cpa code as your sig?

    Criminal charges, no, except in the most flagrant cases of outright fraud (i.e. filling them out yourself or hiring someone to fill them out with fake information.)

    They could, however, potentially sue you for all the money that they'd paid you in the past. How hard it would be to prove would depend on what you were doing. However, in practice this is extremely rare and would only even be a possibility for large amounts of money. Also, they'd need to prove losses, not just TOS violations.
