    My friend was using some random offer from NBlue and getting traffic from craigslist and he was sending the traffic to a domain with a DMR on it.

    After only 50 clicks and 2 leads he got pulled saying he was using craigslist.

    That is so weird. how did they know?

    May be traffic source leaked....Fake referrer is always better while doing CPA offers

    are you putting a link right in your CL ad, or sending it via email afterwards?

    ur right.

    that is weird!

    unless a BH marketer pulled a fast one and reported him??

    that's the only logical explanation.

    and if that's the case, then that sucks ass, big time.

    It depends on the type of offer, some merchants contact the lead to see where they heard about the offer.

    Any sort of merchant feedback gathering on an offer will quickly expose your leads are from Craigslist.

    i agree with you. merchants do contact your leads at times.

    It makes a big big difference if you are sending leads that don't require people pay anything as opposed to getting them to enter in a CC number.

    I'd say they contacted the leads (depends on the offer)
    or if not, the referrer was leaked, and if it were me, just to be safe, I'd check my referrer to see if it's being blanked, or instead I'd go with brad's cpa-r to know that I'm on the safe side. Or godcpa if you've got it.

    I dont think any network wants you using CL. If your not cloaking your traffic be sure to ask them before you lose all your money.

    I don't think they want any CL traffic... Best thing to do is a DMR or redirect through through your site using a script like Brad's.

    If he had a link then thats easy for them to find out. Also some offers r specific to what kinda promo method u should use. CL might fall in the NOT allowed method.
    I've promoted some NB offers on CL using my LP and no problem.
