    Hi guys, I'm pretty new to IM and I might already have put my Amazon account at risk.

    Let me explain:

    I have an old Amazon account that I use to shop in the site. And a year ago I joined their affiliate program with that same account (but never really used it).

    A couple of weeks ago I started reselling PSN and Xbox Live gift cards on my country's Ebay. To be able to buy them from Amazon you had to have an account with an US adress. So I just created a new Amazon account (same name, same credit card, slightly different email, random US address)

    I bought more than 50 cards this month with no trouble at all. But today I discover that 5 cards sales ($25 earnings) was credited to my affiliate account. This was clearly due to cookies (I had being writing a blog post with affiliate links to those same products).

    Should I warn support of this error? Or bringing it to light could be worse?

    And just the fact of having a second not affiliate account that I use only to buy this gift cards, could get me in trouble?

    It will suck to been banned for this stupid mistake. Thanks in advance for the responses :D
