    Hello,

    since Ive read a lot about cookie spamming here at bhw, I was wondering what could be the worst consequences for doing CS in general.

    The most obvious thing Ive heard a lot from people was that the affiliate network cancelled all revenues and then banned the account of the affiliate once they found out about the cs (mostly it took them some time, though).

    Did anyone experience some worse things like e.g. paying an extra fine or even got mail from an attorney? Would be good to know.

    Chears, David

    probably getting 15k into my bank account. That was probably the worst penalty for cookie spamming.
