    Yeah stay away from http://www.maxbounty.com , they are a bunch of swindlers. I was making good money with them and one day I opened up my email and happened to have one from them that stated:

    "Account terminated for fraudulence."


    And that was it, a one line email. I never used any black hat techniques or even anything that went against their TOS. I looked at my funds and they were gone, I tried to contact em and nobody ever responded to me via email and messenger, when I called I was put on hold and eventually hung up on, over and over again.

    I've been really happy with MB. I only whitehat with them so there have been no issues. It's hard to believe you didn't do anything shady and still got the boot.

    If you were not doing any FRAUD or any BH , call Steve and he may assist you with getting your account back... or just use the many other networks if the ammounnt was not too much to look into..

    Well, I can't reply without knowing who this guy is. If you think you have been terminated by accident, post your MB affiliate ID here and I'll look into it. If you know you did BH and were caught, I don't expect you'll post anything.

    Hello,

    Very True. They cancelled my Account recently for no reason. No blackhat nothing. They didnt even inform me. I cant login suddenly and called them and was informed my account was cancelled. I can even PM Steve my I.D if he is willing to do something about this :(.

    Affiliates that get booted and claim they're doing whitehat fall into one of two categories. Either they don't really know what WhiteHat means, or they're just lying because it's fun to trash companies. As I've said, I'm willing to stand behind the decisions of the compliance department - and - I'm willing to admit when mistakes have been made.

    If you are so sure that you were really doing WhiteHat, post your MB affiliate ID here and I'll investigate. One of two things will happen. I'll see a mistake was made and re-instate your account. Or, I'll post what you did to get you booted.

    Maxbounty have been great for me. I dare say that these people saying they were banned for no reason are lying and were actually doing something blackhat.

    I have had no major issues with Max Bounty, if any. They're one of the best networks around IMO, but depending on what traffic you send their way, the will shave.

    Yay, 1 post guy claiming MB is garbage, while 90% of us here would classify it as a reliable network, probably one of the most reliable. I'm not buying this WH story :prof01:

    Ask MaxSteve....he's on this thread. Sounds pretty bogus, but they may have had some other reasons.

    my only problem with MB so far is one of there programs, I know I had 2 leads which I was not credited for, when I contacted them I was told there was nothing they can do.. they wouldn't even talk to the advertiser, just found that weird.

    Well quite frankly, from the "running a profitable business perspective", it is not cost effective to allocate staff and time to investigate every affiliates account who claims he wasn't credited for 2 leads... I don't even know if they would bother to do anything about 20.

    Also I think it's wrong to say that MaxBounty shaves.... the ADVERTISER shaves, and MaxBounty doesn't pay you for the leads THEY weren't paid for, once again makes perfect logical sense from the "running a profitable business perspective". Okay, maybe around Christmas they keep a few leads to themselves, I wouldn't be surprised :D I just had a ringtone offer go 500+ clicks 0 conversions... I'm not gonna cry about it, but common, really... I know youtube traffic is not the best for conversions, but I doubt none of them converted.

    Anyways I'm not going to complain as MaxBounty are a pretty decent network and I'm quite happy with the fact that Steve is on here, so that if I ever do get screwed I at least get a shot at standing my ground, and worst case scenario - at least know why the hell did I get screwed, in most cases with many big companies you don't get such privilege.

    Those who claim they were banned for "no reason" doing "whitehat only" marketing... well, that's one thing that doesn't make any logical sense from the "running a profitable business perspective" so I'm not buying those claims...

    You can't really blame them if you're sending BH traffic.
