    I know for a fact I'm getting shaved 1:3 on MaxBounty for a very high priced offer. Just wanted to let you guys know. No I do not have proof I can show you but I have been shown proof by my customers. Now this isn't a very large scale yet so I don't exactly want to bring attention to myself.

    I never had a problem with my maxbounty account being shaved.

    I don't see how my leads aren't quality leads. I would even say above average. The only other thing I can think of is something with my redirect. They are quality leads though. I mean they're CC submits. I don't think you can ask for much more than that.

    Same here, never had a problem with MB and have made over 4k with them...My conversions are right and am tight with the AM there now... Maybe they are having high cancelation rates on your offers... talk to the AM see what's up

    "Knowing" you're being shaved 1:3 says two things really, both of which make you look suspect as fuck. Firstly, it's far from common to know what your conversions "should" be by knowing exactly who has completed the offer. Secondly, you know because you communicate with your leads. It looks suspect to me, therefore i'm guessing they can see something up their end and shave accordingly.

    I find it quite amusing how people can on one hand say they supply 100% legit leads, and on the other know the exact number of conversions they should get, the two don't really sit hand in hand now do they? It's almost like saying, "I'm completely and utterly legitimate in the way i pay people to fill out offers, so how dare they pinch these amazing leads."

    He's maybe adding an incentive so knows how many leads he's getting.

    First off I'm not paying for my leads. Second off I'm not saying I'm playing by the rules but I'm not saying I'm not either. I'm not trying to bash MB. I like them. I'm just saying what I've observed. I know my leads are not canceling so quickly. I know right when they sign up and it's not clearing. So your assumptions are a little off.

    My second paragraph was not directed at your leads, although reading it back I can see how it seems that way. I was using lead buying as a similar example, i wasn't meaning to imply that's what you're doing... Sorry for offending you. :)

    From above, "I'm not saying I'm playing by the rules but I'm not saying I'm not either."

    That hardly sounds kosher does it? The point i was trying to make was the irony and the whole Pot/Kettle/Black issue; If the leads are shady, why can't the network be shady?

    And don't take that as an attack on you. That's not what i'm doing. I'm just making a point or two and some generalisations on the whole issue of threads talking about knowing they're being shaved and the irony of such a thread. :)

    That's nice of you to clarify. No offense taken. I don't think most of us play by all the rules. So your right. I guess they don't have to either. Maybe if I send them the Jedi mind trick I can get in on their good side ;)
