    Hi! About two months ago I've signed an agreement with Conridium and it seems to be a swindler. Here is a matter of deal.

    More than two months ago we signed an agreement with Conridium. According to the agreement they are obliged to refer us 3,000 leads. We have made prepayment $3,000.

    Thereafter they started delaying of their work performance. They always postponed proper performance and make some reasons why they can't start making our project. Then they proposed us unacceptable obligations for cooperation and so on...
    Till nowadays we haven't received ordered services.

    Having tired from eternal negotiations we asked about returning of our prepayment. But they refused, because they had already paid to their publishers.

    So, it's a bad deal to cooperate with Conridium!

    We have received money from Conridium and they appeared to be a fair company that keeps own words. We take our accusations back.

    We had the same issue with Conridium. Our contact there was David Lyasota.

    They were supposed to run a $2000 campaign for us. As soon as they should have started performing, they said our banners are not working (they are working fine in two other campaigns) and that they paid their media sources in advance and can not give us a refund. They also never provided reports, because the data they had was not "detailed enough yet".

    They did bring some neglectable traffic to our site - around 250 clicks, worth less than $100 -, where we noticed some other interesting things. The average visit from all other sources was around 40 seconds according to Google Analytics, where the traffic from Conridium was 8 seconds average, with a lot of 0 second traffic. Further research suggested, that instead of advertising on websites they pay people to register, hence the traffic coming from them is worth nothing.

    I can not post the links yet, but if you search from the term Conridium you get a link with affiliatebot in the url, where you can read a post that confirms this suspicion.

    They seem to be a straight forward scam company. We are going to take legal action against them.

    We had exactly the same problem with Conridium who are clearly a scam company. Our contact there was Roman Manzhosov.

    We made a $2000 prepayment, and as soon as this was done, the delays started. First it was the ad material that wasn't working, then they wanted to change the payout and the conversion point and then we stopped hearing from them completely. It's now been more than 6 months since we made that prepayment and not a single lead has been generated. At this point, they don't answer the phone nor respond to emails.

    A word of advice to all advertisers out there, don't ever make a prepayment to Conridium, as fraud appear to be their main business model.

    Did taking legal action help you recover your prepayment? We are contacting our lawyer at this point.
