    Well, let me share my story with you. I was having an outstanding a/c (about 1 year back). It was earning about 3k/month for last 2 years. I was generating incentivized leads since the begining of that a/c. Then about 1 year back, CJ came to know about the incentives I was giving SO they closed my a/c BUT I got paid my balance money. Then again I opened a new a/c at cj and start producing incentivized leads AGAIN but this time with faking the referer, then AGAIN they come to know about this (after about 7 months of starting this new a/c), and they disabled my a/c saying that my activities are suspicious. Then I send them Fax and emails (lots of time) and also talked to them personally. I kept calling and sending them mails and faxes, for about 1 month and finally, they agreed to pay my my balance and it reached me within 8-9 days. Yes, my a/c again got closed but I successfully managed to get my balance. Actually, I did not left any footprints SECOND TIME so even they have suspicion regarding my a/c, but they could not prove anything wrong related to my a/c AND this way I managed to [email protected] them off twice. Offcourse, Im now running their campaigns NOW also with another a/c and the story is still on.......

    Cover your tracks and you should be fine. CJ is a good company, and having one account with them comes in handy :)

    CL is blackhat per CJ TOS.

    This came to me in an email from CJ when they had an issue with some of my traffic. I didn't lose my account but that advertiser told me to hit the road so I no longer have them.

    Publishers may not place affiliate links/tracking code, nor promote Web sites that contain affiliate links/tracking code, in or on third-party: forums, message boards, blog comment areas, classified advertisement services (such as CraigsList.org)

    It also cost me a couple of thousand in commissions as they didn't pay me for that advertisers sales.

    Fortunately I was at about 9700.00 for the month with all my advertisers so it didn't really hurt that much.
