    Hey guys,

    I hope you're doing alright. I'll try to make things clear as much as possible, and hopefully one or 2 of you will be able to guide me into the right procedure.

    I've been buying supposed real traffic from Traffix3 for about 2 months. I sent that traffic to my porn websites, where I got Plugrush & JuicyAds Mobile redirect. Yes, it's probably traffic arbitrage I know. All the traffic is processed through a referrer blanker.

    A week ago, JuicyAds banned my account for "hit-bot traffic". I got in touch with Jay and he told me he was quite surprised to received that kind of traffic from me. We came to an agreement that if I could clean my traffic, he would get me back my account. We could identify that the hit-bot traffic was actually the traffic from Traffix3 and I stopped sending that traffic to JuicyAds (Even though, only the FR and DE traffic seemed fake). I sent an email to Traffix3 but I didn't receive any answers (Been 5 days, they usually get back in 24hours so I suppose they're just ignoring it).

    Same thing happened today with PlugRush. Account banned. At this point I'm pissed of by the quality of this service.
    I made about 20 Paypal transactions with Traffix3 and my ultimate goal would be to get back that money (he sold me something of lesser quality). I opened 1 dispute (as a test) in order to see how Paypal would react when telling them the whole story. Haven't heard from them (yes, it was only today).

    I'm really open to any commentary or advices as per how to deal with this situation. Is opening 20 disputes on Paypal necessary ? Will the first dispute be held as jurisprudence ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, if anyone have a way to control the quality of traffic (as proof it's fake), i'm all ears.

    good luck with getting your money back, i'm not sure if you're aware, but there was a vivid thread in the journey section started by akany about traffic arbitrage (maybe that's where you got the idea?), the thread was removed since then, because apparently his only intention was to promote the/his site, traffix3

    i'm pretty sure you need to dispute all the payments, it can be that you won't even be able to do that with older payments, so do it until you can, however if you win the first case, chances are that paypal will decide in your favor with the rest too

    I started actually 1 week before that thread and asked Akany to take it down in PM but he refused so. he's a scammer for sure, but he's smart. I'll see what the first dispute does and see from there.

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick update. I won my first case against Akany/Traffixxx. So if you bought him traffic and got banned from networks, just go ahead !
    I just opened a second case hoping that the first case will do jurisprudence.

    I sent Akany/traffixx an email to try and find a middleground but he denied to answer. I guess he doesnt mind having 20 disputes open in Paypal.

    I'll let you guys know how it goes.


    if you give a good speech to paypal support, they will decide in your favor. It's all about explaining everything well and in detail.

    Hola tayaX

    I have lost also money buying traffic in the past. I think is part of the game and learn. Tried to get money back from paypal but got 0.
    Contacted some old XXX webmaster but they never heard from this company Traffix3 . Jay of juicy ads is good person so if you do the things you promised you will get your account back.

    Do you do Spanish XXX traffic ? I have some

    I talked with Jay and he's a lovely guy. He reinstated my account in no time; I wish i could say the same about plugrush but their support is the worst.

    I'm not dealing with traffic at the moment anymore.
