    Hi all ...

    Just wanted to post something here involving a VERY negative experience I have had promoting with webcamscom
    I was owed 1300$ for 2 weeks earnings (first 2 weeks of this year) 1 day before the payment was to be issued, I was unable to log into my account and shortly there after I received an email stating that I had been suspended due to "fraud". I promptly contacted the ONLY rep they have "Daniel" and was told that I would NOT be paid anything and that my account was shut down, and no more reason was going to be given on the matter. I had spoken to him a few times in the weeks before and he was VERY cool and nice but his tone completely changed and he was very rude telling me " i feel sorry for you situation"
    My sales and traffic are legit and I have been promoting with sponsors for years without ANY issues whatsoever. I have notices over the last month or so that I am by FAR not the only affiliate who has been suspended without explanation and not been paid. I have spoken to 12 other affiliates who are in the same predicament as I am, and who were shut down without explanation and without pay.
    I noticed that someone posted a similar story on another msg board earlier today but they were banned. I couldnt figure out why and then i realized that WEBCAMSCOM was a sponsor for that board.
    Bottom line is this .. WEBCAMSCOM is cheating their affiliates out of honest earnings, and it all starts with their Rep DANIEL.
    in 2010 they fired all of their honest staff (Jago, Chris, Blake, Juan, Dirk) and now are working with a new team and they are very rude, shady and currupt. I lost 1300$ .. how much are you going to lose ?
    Feel free to email me .. and i can let you know who to contact if you have had the same issues as i have.
    The owner and CEO of the company's name is RICHARD CLARK, he is at the end of the day responsible for the cheating and stealing being done by STAN-DA-MAN and DANIEL over at webcamscom

    Every affiliate company has thousands of the same stories as you. Affiliate companies ALWAYS wait until pay day before banning you. Even Adsense does this. Unless you personally know an owner or employee of the company, I would never recommend any put all their effort into 1 affiliate program because this WILL happen.

    Does anyone experience the same as OP did?
    I am going to pour some of my adult traffic to them, so i am so grateful if people give some idea about webcams.

    I've promote both webcams.com and awe ( livejasmin )

    Ive had issues with webcams.com before, where they said some traffic had been cookie stuffed.. which was totally untrue.. so now i just promote all my adult traffic to awe.

    AWE converts way better than webcams.com, on a average month awe will make me around 1k where as webcams.com, with the same traffic source would only convert to around 400 bucks a month.

    So get on over to awe.. and dont waste your time with webcams.com!!

    I gotta weigh in here, I love this stuff, though the stories are sad, you must learn to realize you are not powerless.....you just think you are.

    Let me explain.

    My gift is being a prick, a dirty rotten nasty prick, to bullies, not the innocent of course. 10 times over the years I've had this experience, a network locking me out and saying they werent paying.

    This is most affiliate's worst nightmare. Not me.

    I get giddy like a little school girl when a network tells me they're not paying me, I love it, and I'll tell you why, I know how to play dirty too.

    You have to fight fire with fire.

    There's a post of mine way back about how I dealt with one network and got my money, and that was only one experience, there have been 10 so far, and I always get paid when I start being a fucking prick.

    This business is dog eat dog. I don't give a fuck how nice your affiliate rep is, business is business, I don't trust any cpa or network or affiliate rep, I trust ME, I'm loyal to Me. There are good networks, but there are a lot that are shady.

    Yes we're all smiles and niceties until something goes wrong, then they're pricks, and the nice affiliate walks away beat because the nice affiliate rep just fucked him hard in the ass.

    Here's what I would do if I were you.

    First tell him he can tongue your balls.....from behind of course....that'll set the tone, all niceties out the fucking door. Be rude.

    Then tell him that you always keep a backup of all people who signed up, just as a safety measure in case a network tried to drill you in the ass. Now tell him you'll mail them all and tell them to charge back if they signed up, because the whole sites a fishing site that just wanted their cc numbers and emails anyway. And the ones that didn't sign up sure as fuck won't now or ever.

    Then tell him you're doing a "Reverse campaign" on Craigs list" A combination of scraping and mailing as well as posting to warn guys not to ever fall for the fishing site webcams.com.

    On a good day you can reach 10000 guys, multiply that by 7-14 days...you get the picture.

    Tell him to keep the $1300, you'll just advertise his fishing site for 13 days, trust me, it will make a dent in their overall conversions, they will see it if it get's that far and it will cost a fuck of a lot more than $1300. It would be way cheaper to pay you out.

    Their next step is of course to make legal threats if theyre really fucking stupid, which they are....the ones who fuck affiliates. That's why they do it, they're fucking stupid, they think short term. I really love this part because I actually get to talk to someone on the phone by this point usually.

    Most times it won't get this far, they'll usually turtle by this point. I have been contacted by legal departments in three of the fights I've been in, I told all them to go fuck themselves too, and that I enjoyed court and could we please go.

    They all turtled in the end. They aren't going to spend thousands when they can just pay you your $1300 and shut you up and stop your "Reverse campaign".

    The Internet is a powerful medium, use it, fight the pricks at networks, be dirty like them, it's the only way to beat them.

    Now there are a lot of good networks that are in it for the long term and don't fuck people, so be good to them and send good traffic. But be a prick to the pricks.

    I don't give advice about that which I don't know. If I'm talking, I know what it's about. I've done all of the above and far worse.

    Thanks for the info. If and when I will start promoting adult affiliates, I will use livejasmin or something else.

    "Feel free to email me .. and i can let you know who to contact if you have had the same issues as i have"
    I'm curious about this. Please send me a pm.

    Screw Webcams! I stopped promoting them a long time ago. I tried contacting affiliate managers support for months on some questions that I had. Never once did any of them respond back to me.

    I have been promoting them for years and they used to pay well, and checks arrived on time every time. Lately, ever since their checks started being sent from a different address in Canada, to say that they're sporadic would be a compliment. I have told them this several times with no response to my questions on WHY their payments are so bad now. And, I have received NO CHECKS for a month now, even though it says that they're being paid out, and they're giving me the run around on sending me any money.

    I'm going to move my traffic to either AWE or ImLive, anyone have any suggestions? I read above that someone here likes AWE, however in the past I had noticed them being a bit sketchy not answering my questions like webcams.com. Have they improved, anybody have good experiences with them?
