July 27th, 2010, 02:46 PM #1Mentioning fraud in Affiliate Newsletter?
I have been having a bit of issues with fraud lately and decided to that I wanted to remind affiliates about how seriously we take the matter and the consequences that are associated with producing fraudulent leads. Is a quick and short reiteration of our policies within the newsletter a good idea? If not, how else can I work to combat this issue?

I would not send a newsletter. I would find the worst offenders in your program and reach out to them individually. You may be able to start a good relationship and turn things around.

Why plant a seed. I agree w/ Jonoleeann
Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

It would probably be ineffective. Those who are going to try to defraud your program aren't going to bother reading the newsletter, and even if they do that won't deter them.

I think I disagree with all the responses.
"Is a quick and short reiteration of our policies within the newsletter a good idea?"
Of course. Those who want to commit fraud aren't going to care but it lets the others know you're watching for it and not just some program on autopilot.
"I would find the worst offenders in your program and reach out to them individually. You may be able to start a good relationship and turn things around."
With fraudsters? How about just kicking them out of your program. Why would you want to work with somebody trying to screw you over?

I don't think that I would want to cultivate a relationship with anyone who tried to put a few past us, especially since we have a zero tolerance policy.

I would just kick them out. Fraudsters aren't going to just be "Good" affiliates they are going to think of new ways to rip you off. An alert like this just lets them know you caught on to what they are doing.[URL="http://www.manageaffiliatelinks.com/"][COLOR="Red"][B]Manage Affiliate Links[/B][/COLOR][/URL] - Redirect Dead, Expired, or Broken Links
