    16k is a lot of money, sorry you lost it.

    may be they got you by your affiliate link?

    Thanks for the replies guys- I wasn't using any affiliate links Howard_Hughes I was earning money by letting guys subscribe to my private picture galleries which is allowed on adultwork.

    Honeybird, I was browsing "In Private" all the while I was making and logging into the profiles, I presumed that this would save me having to repeatedly delete my cookies? I could be wrong though. I was using elite proxies for the most part, the strange thing is having all the accounts banned at the exact same time, when I can't think how adultwork could possibly have linked all the accounts together so strange.Oddly enough ,one of my accounts survived, im just trying to establish why this one is so special, it holds the key to big money.

    exactly same thought as above, why not cash out before it hits 16k and keep the money?
    its like stealing and depositing the money in the same bank....not smart :p

    As with everything, adsense, clickbank, affiliate programs, all the money earned on these is not worth anything unless it's in your bank.

    Thanks Monrox, had a ton of flash cookies, none I could see related obviously to adultwork but there was a lot of random ones where it wasn't clear where they came from so it could well have been belonging to adultwork, i'l try set up a few slowly and let you guys know over the next few days if they are staying put

    I would guess you were reported by customers for selling pictures you don't own obtained from the net for free.

    All it would take is a few complaints about the content you were selling to get them to take a closer look. Also, as you get close to the cashout threshold perhaps they have someone manually reviewing the accounts to make sure everything is above board.

    Lastly, it could have been a technical fuckup linking all the accounts together like you mentioned before.

    Best of luck in getting this figured out and giving it another shot.

    Thanks MrE,

    Ill definately be giving it another shot, I think you've nailed it with regards to the customer complaints thing, unfortunately adultwork don't really give you any feedback once they suspend your account so it tends to be guesswork as to why you've been banned but I've had a look at a few site reviews for adultwork and alot of genuine escorts have been complaining about getting their profiles taken down due to complaints even after they have properly verified their accounts with ID and shit . It's pretty heartbreaking but im gonna stick at it, its been the closest i've come to banking big (in my terms anyway) in my 3 year "career" in IM so hopefully there's a way round it, thanks for the support blackhatters!

    cc cleaner is the best thing you need - also a virtual machine cos they can track you from other means-

    good luck mate im sure youll get there eventually you have a winning formula - just cash out more often - like in the weakest link -

    If you can make $16K tricking horny guys into buying shit you can surely make that much doing more legit stuff. Take your talents and energy and put them into legit money makers. It will be one less thing you will have to worry about, and will save you a lot of stress.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yup. Ccleaner is a must have.. I've also fallen in love with virtual machines... Currently running 4 of them right now.. theyre fantastic.

    OP sorry to hear about what happened. Best of luck to you in rebuilding what was lost. Although your accounts were deactivated it sounds like you have a winning formula to duplicate your success.
