    I let someone use one of my idle accounts from a lower name affiliate network. Well months went by and there was no action on it.
    So I was going thru my old accounts just logging into them and I login to said account and see there is allot of traffic and conversions on it.
    I look into the payment details and see the account has been paid out 4 times....various amounts from 200-500.00.

    I am like how can that be.

    I check the account details and this person. Changed all my info so he can get paid vai paypal. The email address. The mailing address etc.
    Only thing he left was the ss #, telephone number and name.

    Needless to say I changed all the contact info to my legit info AND account email address and password.

    3 days later I am getting email password recover request. lol.

    Then my AM from said account calls me and said someone called up and asked for the password, lol It wasnt me. I told her give no info to anyone but me.
    Well if said person is on this board your free lunch is up. Hope you enjoyed the 4 checks while it lasted. I talked to the DA in the town where his address is. He is getting brought up on charges.

    So be careful when your giving your account info out to people. I know I should have been checking my stuff more often and to be honest this is the only time this ever happened will all the accounts I J. But it can happen to any of us.
    You just never know what these people are doing with your personal info once they have access to it.

    So let me get this straight. You LET someone use your account, then you get upset when he makes money and gets the money sent to him?
    Then you report him to the police after YOU LET him use your account...LOL
    Let me ask you a question..when YOU LET him use your account what did you think he was going to do with it..advertise and let you keep the money?

    If whoever had access to your account, made the conversions, what is the problem? I think you are bein a dick here as you even said it was an account you don't even use. I hope your gonna pay him the commissions that were left in the account before you went sour and got jealous.

    Yeah I don't really understand this either? Let me see if I get this straight.

    1. You willingly give the guy access to your account so he can push offers, and make some money.

    2. This is an account that you are not using.

    3. Said person starts making money with this account and wants to be paid for his work so he changes where the money is sent to. Which is totally understandable to me. He/She did not change the login information on you? Because you were able to login to this account to check on things?

    - I don't get what the big deal is? I would have probably done the same thing.

    Now I would have talked to you first about it, but that is just the way that I operate. Other then that, I don't really get what the big deal is with what he/she did?

    WTF arent you guys getting who are flaming. The JV worked as follows.

    1) He sends traffic and conversions . ONcE I am paid from the network I send him is cut and keep my cut 64% him 40% me.

    NOT him changing all my personal info and keeping 100% for himself without letting me know he was sending traffic or making money. WTF is wrong with some people here?

    How that clears it up on why I am pissed and why the guy is in the wrong. I have J'd with a few people in the same manner and it works the same WTF dont you guys get?

    LOL nice math too bad that math doesnt work out in my favor.

    Ok maybe in my haste I didnt explain myself fully.

    I granted him access to my account to pull offers I didnt let him borrow or have the account.

    Also the deal was a 60/40 split. When I would get paid and the check would clear I would send him his cut of the pay....pretty standard affair in a CPA JV. This was how it was done in Pofecks JV when he had it and a few others.

    what he did is not the deal or how it works.

    Well now that you have explained it better, we will understand better. That is a messed up deal then. You did leave out the 60/40, and when you get paid you would pay him/her.

    Is this a member of this forum?

    Seems a lot of people here are green to what CPA account JVs are about.

    The guy you were working with did cross the line. JVs where you let people use your account work the way you described, though you are getting a fairly large split of the revenues compared to most. Perhaps he never intended for you to get your split, and this was his game plan all along. :)

    I actually did JVs like this on a few occasions with some others. They said they would run around $1k a month, and I got 30% to 20%. Sure sounds good. Only they did like $20 on one after 3 months, and a mere $300 after 2 months on another. Why bother? JV would be alright if the guy seemed to know what he was doing.

    For those of you who 'don't see the problem'. Come year end, that CPA network will be reporting to the IRS that this guy made $XXXX amount, which they will be expecting to get some taxes paid on. While the guy who changed all his info, will be getting away with it all, leaving him and his name on the line for the taxes.

    Also, he never agreed to let the guy hijack his identity like that. The way the networks are now-a-days. It's easier to score crack cocaine than to open a CPA account. So OP was lucky he managed to keep his going.

    Only mistake you made was what you mentioned. Letting it go on too long without seeing what was happening. Also could have saved some newbie/green comments about CPA account JVs by explaining how it worked in the beginning. :)

    You know I cant remember if it is someone from this forum. I wish I could. I just have his email address and the mailing address he changed it to and the paypal email address. Of course I wont post that here on the forum but that is what I have.

    Well if you had read his staring post he didnt mention JV.
    He said he let someone use his account. He didnt say it was a JV.
    Now that he has explained it a little better people understand he got screwed

    then you can contact an admin here with the info you have, your "partner" may registered here with the same email address, purchased jr vip/donor status with that paypal you have in record, so if it was a real JV, i guess the admins will help you out, if they can ;)

    Well, then that affiliate company is retarded. They shouldnt have made the payments because the payee information wont match. The name under his paypal account will be different. They should have realized that something fishy was going on.

    Besides, you can claim that your account is hacked and you didnt receive a dime. Since its paypal, they can do a charge back and you can get all that money back from that guy, plus screw his paypal account if you want to.

    this is why i don't JV much, there are always people with dirty schemes.

    and when I do I would never give him my accounts info, just use a widget spinner or something.
