    Spyware Still Cheating Merchants and Legitimate Affiliates
    I just found this place where I could read all publications by fraud catcher Ben Edelman. Each publication provides detailed info on unethical online activities. It is a lot of info, but definitely worth checking it out

    April 2009 is an article in India, the last "report" was March.

    I do however notice that a few known ones are missing - must be "consulting" clients
    Continued Success,

    Hi folks,

    I'll have a new article posted soon -- next one probably about PPC issues, though after that a piece on affiliate fraud.

    As to the rate of updates: Sometimes it's hard to know what more to say about affiliate fraud. Rogue affiliates keep doing what they've been doing. Some networks are diligent in catching them; others less so. Some merchants are tough on fraud; others seem to look the other way. I can post dozens of examples, or hundreds, and I have. But honestly it's hard to keep up the energy for doing this year after year.

    Haiko, I don't think anything is "missing." I mean, certainly there are articles I could have written but didn't. But nothing that I wrote has ever been removed, to the best of my knowledge & recollection. What do you have in mind?


    Ben

    Hey Ben,

    Most recently - I'd have to say Onecause, the others can stay in the past.
