    Hey guys i just started working with CJ for the first month and made like
    $300+ all from one program... i log in today and i see my balance is $20 from some dating websites i just tried out... so i need help to see if there is anyway i can get my money back

    so here is how it all started
    My friend showed me how stuff works and i started posting ads on craigslist offering free kittens - after i stareted recieving emails i just set up an autoresponder sending them to sign up to the program and see the pictures of the kittens there and the info needed.

    i signed up to the program myself and posted a profile there with pictures and stuff when i loged in the first time, when i tried to log in agian i couldn't sign up, when i searched for my name i couldn't find it so i thought it was kinda sweet b/c when people will search for me they won't find me so they will be forced to sign up thinking maybe if your a member they will find my profile

    When i try to log in it tells me acount needs verification, when i tried to verify my account again it told me it is already verified... wierd... i tried to request a forgoton password and it tells me email address is not in the system?? :confused:

    so i log in to see my emails today and CJ stating that i had missleading ads on CL and that all my money will be terminated and i was kicked from my program and CL said they will terminate my account in 15 days

    please help me if you think i can some how make up a story and at least get $300 bucks from them i can sign up for a diff affilitate program not worried about that

    How did they know you were posting ads on craigslist? In what way were you not covering yourself.

    Commission Junction is currently investigating your account and has
    the following inquiries regarding your promotional methods:

    There is an advertiser warning that you have misleading Craigslist
    driven traffic involving kittens for sale. I'm waiting for some
    documentation of that, but if it is true, you clearly need to
    discontinue that.

    Please respond by replying to this specific e-mail within 5 days of
    the mailing date.


    thats one of the mails i got from CJ

    i suppose cj tracked down your email on cl and get suspicious over your earnings which explains that you get kicked from your programs.

    How were you linking to the offer? Do you know what I am talking about when I say double meta refresh or faking the referrer?

    If this is a new service it might be small and there for they are verifying all leads via a questionnaire. Might have been a "how did you hear about us"

    Many possibilities.

    theres plenty of cpa sites... just look around. but since you dont know anything about meta refresh or faking the referer then i would HIGHLY suggest checking out the CPA section try signing up to as many as possible.

    to many leads when your new will raise a red flag... next time try rotating your offers make it a different offer every 10 mins or so depending on much traffic your getting to your cpa offer.... and if i was you i would personally answer the emails unless you get to many...

    just my 2 cents...

    I don't think you have much chance of getting the money back. Though you might be able to think up something to save your account.

    your not gonna get that money back,You should have atleast blanked the referer, they probably had a good laugh seeing your kittens scheme.

    Look up on how to do a double meta refresh, with referer checking. When you send traffic to your cj offer, make it go though the double meta refresh first, so they dont see where the traffic comes from. you should be good then, pm me if you need some help
