    I am an affiliate of CB and make tons of money promoting the products listed on there. But lately I have been working harder and earning a whole lot less. I have multiple accounts I use to push traffic under. Well yesterday when my check arrived in the mail I also had another envelope that was sent from clickbank. Inside was a letter along with another check. The letter pretty much states that I have had my money stolen. It doesn't explain how , or by who. Take a look at the letter below and share your thoughts & experiences.

    I have no idea..

    but maybe one of their affiliate managers was misdirecting the leads under one of their accounts and collecting your leads?

    Do you use any link cloaking services. Please check whether you links are changed.

    I was really wondering why my daily sales had dropped off. What the heck clickbank? I bust my @$$ to sell products for them. My ROI has been terrible for the last week.

    Actually this shows me that clickbank is more stable then ever. This is something that could have very easily been swept under the rug....but instead they did the right thing. My respect for them as grown.

    I was wondering if you promote an offer with an Optin - you are still supposed to get credited with that sale. I wonder if people are actually crediting affiliates with that lead.

    Take anything that offers a mini course for free. The autoresponder sends them 7 emails in 14 days, if they convert after the 14th day - you should get paid. It just seems hard to track if that is really happening. Now I capture their addresses myself, send them the same material, but use my link in the emails just to be sure....and I also have their email at the end.

    Thanks for the info OP. I will be on the look out.

    I refresh my hoplinks every two days. Strange things happened in one of my accounts: I had a few clicks on products that I never promoted. I donĀ“t think clickbank shave commisions, their bussines is already too big just to ruin it for stealing a few dollars and gaining a bad reputation. The risk is too high.

    Maybe some smart hackers are around as they know clickbank is getting bigger day by day and more commisions are being paid.

    i know this is an old thread but for all we know click bank is in it together with the criminals or maybe they pulled it off them self you can never trust people man especially when money is involved that looks more like a positive extortion letter to me than anything else it's kind of like when some stole your money then the same thief helps you look for it lol
