    Could a network do more than just can you if you were caught incentivizing non incent offers?

    Lets say that the advertisers actually like my traffic though, do you think its likely the cpa network would do more than not pay me? if I have made more than a few thousand could they try to take legal action?

    Were also talking about someone in the US here.

    it's a violation of TOS not a crime. the absolute worst they would do is file a civil suit against you (think egay vs DP)

    I would think they dont take action like that against many people?

    Thanks for the response.

    Well im doing 3-4k a month - I can always tone it down a bit though.

    Any thoughts?

    It might also be time to setup an LLC. Plus I hear there are great tax benefits.

    Edit: There is no feasible way for the network to know except if a visitor to my site reports me to them. I have it setup so that my referrer looks perfectly legit.

    I have been doing it almost exactly a month and no problems.

    My AM has actually told me that the advertisers like my traffic.

    The traffic isnt that crap, its just breaking the TOS, but its well hidden.

    So, are they actually converting ... as in filling out the entire form including their name, address, etc. ? If so, I don't think you'll have a problem. I got banned from one particular advertiser in Neverblue because my traffic wasn't converting (they were just put in there e-mail address only).

    I would think they are only putting in their email address, but the AM says one of the advertiser's likes my traffic, so I guess some of them are backing out.

    since i've never tried it... how are you incentivizing non-incent offers? if it's a trade secret i understand. just wondering how this would work.

    Just spread it over a couple of advertisers with the same offer.
