    I joined Limelight and Blam Ads a year ago. I have not used it at all but I did give them my SSN. But now seeing Limelights website doesn't work and Blam ads doesn't pay, I'm worried about my SSN being used in fraudulent ways. Can someone shed some into if this kind of SSN fraud has happened before or if I should be worried or not? Thanks!

    I haven't heard of any SSN fraud happening from CPA companies, but there's always a risk...

    They could use your SSN to open a new credit card and pwn your tits, etc...

    Is giving a SSN required by all CPA networks? Any way around this?

    Stay with well known companies EXCLUSIVELY, easy. If a company has a booth at one of the major affiliate conventions held IRL Stateside, chances are you're on the safer side. But this should come as common sense. Your random little smartass entering the game and brokering big boy's CPA offers might likely be tempted to resort to this kind of fraud when he discovers that running "his" shitty autoapprove network ain't as easy as he had thought... ;)

    Scammers and fraudsters use other methods which are more safe to obtain those information, I dont think any CPA network would do that no matter how shady they are but they wouldnt risk on some thing like it, as its easy to track them
