    Hey guys, thought I should warn you all on this one.

    Vintacore (http://www.vintacore.com), the affiliate network, have not been replying to numberous emails from numerous members and they have not sent out the past 2 months payments.

    If anyone has a different story then feel free to post but from my eyes there are enough people that have been scammed and ignored by them to place them on the shitlist.

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to jump in here. My name is Sam Rawlings, and I am a senior affiliate manager at Vintacore -- I have been working with them for over three years.

    Firstly, please consider me to be a resource to BHW members. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Full disclosure -- I know our model is antithetical to a lot of the practices pursued by members of this community. Our network is balanced -- we value our advertisers as much as our publishers and enjoy a substantial portfolio of AofR deals to serve as testiment. That said, over the years, some of the most siphisticated quants and analytics rockstars have come form this forum; members who used their skills to deliver large quanities of high-quality leads. We want to engage these users, the whizes and geniuses -- we've done good business in the past together.

    Next to address some of the points posed -- and this is a bit overdue:

    In late 2008, to respond to poor lead quality in the hard incentivization sector, Vintacore stopped pursuing partnerships in the space. In the months prior, many publishers generated leads that were scrubbed / revoked by advertisers as they determined to be invalid. Hard incentivized publishers that exceeded a threshold of invalididations were suspended indefinitely -- emails were sent informing them of such. The balance of their accounts were settled once A/R confirmed receipt of disbursements from advertisers and made deductions for invalidations. This "cool down" period, in some instances, lasted months, as, in conjunction with the associated advertisers and third parties, Vintacore had to analyze and make determinations on lead quality in a definitive manner. Additionally, publishers that exceeded a tier-two threshold for invalidations -- which was over two standard deviations from norm -- were immediately terminated from the network and had their payments were revoked. Vintacore values its relationships with its advertisers and does not condone fraud -- owners of all affected accounts were emailed and informed of an appeal process.

    Again, please seeme an ambassador to Vintacore. Feel free to PM me with any questions or to talk shop.

    All best,
    SAMR
