    I signed up with Hydra, and after 2 weeks, I finally get an email 2 days ago congratulating me and welcoming me to their network. I sign into my account and notice I have to send in a w-9 form before looking at any campaigns. So I sent it in the same day and today I sign in to see if they processed my w9 form yet but it looked like I still had to wait. I sign in after an hour and it says my account has been suspended. What the hell happened? I emailed them and now I'm waiting for an answer. Anybody know why they would suspend someone 2 days after welcoming them to their network? I haven't run any campaigns, and my w-9 form had accurate info.

    Exactly, plus why would they welcome me then ban me 2 days later? They should have known I was a part of this forum before accepting me if they were able to find out that kind of information. And anyways you use your email and password to sign in, no user name. It's really weird, their site says to allow a day after sending them your w9 for you to be on file and to be able to start looking at campaigns, so it would have been around that time that I got banned. It's like they saw the w9, and then decided to suspend. It makes no sense. I'm from the US, all correct info on my w9, signed it....everything is perfect.

    Yes I sent them an email. This happened on Friday so even if they respond it'll probably be by Monday.

    ALWAYS call your account manager when they screw up your account. Most often, they suspend you for nothing special because that's their leverage. They know that you will contact them if you intend to use their programs.

    It's up to you to get it straightened out. These services are NOT there for our benefit. We are there for THEIR benefit. That's not my belief system, that's my experience of their belief system. They hire 20 year old robots and pay them nothing but give them a little power. Kinda like Germany in the 30s.

    What do you mean they pay us nothing, they pay us what we sell... unless they are shaving the leads of course. But that is on them not us.;)

    I think he was refering to the account managers as robots, not you.
