    Now here's ROT. A while ago I was at Yahoo and got this pop-under for flags. So of course I looked for the Affiliate Program link, figuring that if everyone else is sold out but that joint, Heeeyyyy....

    Sure enough they had a program to run their pop-unders on a pay-per-sale basis so I signed right up even though it was a private deal.

    Quick enough, moved some flags! Seems cool so far, eh???

    Well, NOT!!! :mad: At 1 AM this morning I get a notice (I should have known...those after midnight mailings are always BAD) that they're moving their program to revenuelink.com! As if that's something new! (it wasn't new, their ad always said Revenuelink in the title bar when it first came up...)

    Can you smell it coming? The COMMISSION DATA "disappeared" in the transfer (yah, RIGHT)!!! :mad:

    And now there's new terms, too! Instead of getting a sweet 20% of the SALE price, this bogus Revenuelink says they'll pay 65%....of the ADVERTISING price (CPM)!!! They don't state CPM right out, either. But that's what it boils down to!

    Rahr! And they don't say how much this "network advertising fee" is, either. Since it's all really the same fudging place (although they've gone to lengths to hide that now, it was obvious last week), I'd say that ZERO is a good bet!

    Of course I e-mailed them for my commission (fortunately the ad was only up long enough to make $12), and, just as Of Course, they're now hiding under a rock and not responding.

    In their 1AM mailing, they also said they'd "put $25 in the account" if I changed out the code real quick...Now that I'm awake I saw that they raised the min. for payout to 50 bucks which means that H will be solidly frozen by the time the rest of THAT comes in, since they don't pay for sales anymore!

    Well, if they ask where their pop-under code went, I'll say "the same place my COMMISSION went!"

    Aaargh! Crooks, crooks, crooks!

    Leader, don't that piss you off. I found them through someone here's site and joined them. When I went to check my stats I was real surprised at how the setup was. Very iffy. I gave them a couple of days and said forget this, no clicks, impressions or anything. I got that email last night and didn't know what they were talking about because it was the same site like you said. I almost did what the email said but then thought why would they give me $25.00 for nothing. They must be a scam.

    I'LL SAY! I would have bolted for the doors when I first saw that un-report, but CompuBank didn't used to say much in the line of stats either and they paid like clockwork...So I suppose I didn't get as big of an AAAACCCKKK from USAFlagsDirect as I should have! WELL I KNOW NOW!

    And yes, I'm quite pissed :mad: :mad: :mad: !

    I just ran across your post about revenue link and have made the firm aware of your post. Please be advised that they are trying to contact you to get you your $12. If you review the program you will note that checks are paid when your account gets to a certain amount well over $12 . All this aside I have been a member of the USAflagsdirect program and did get my payments and the pop under network that has taken over for them has also done a good job of making me a fair income. All communications I have had with both firms has been extremely professional and very responsive. I am including Revenuelink's e-mail address here for you in case you would like to contact them directly. With thousands of Revenuelink members, (a large number of whom I work with) I must say that your experience is unique. Everyone that I know who is using Revenuelink as an income source seems to be doing fine and have always gotten paid on time and for the right amounts. I am sure that if you take the time to contact them that you to will be impressed with their responsiveness and their level of customer service.

    Buddy, thanks for the feedback. I still cannot stay with a program that gives me no info as to clickthroughs or impressions. I liked the site layout but the reporting sucks. Maybe if they had some kind of reporting of tracking I would reconsider. When to check my stats and saw just a blank page that was enough for me.

    I have no problem with the pop unders. I actually do good using them as long as they load fast. It would be nice to hear from about the reporting of tracking.

    "Buddy"--

    Malarkey!

    >I just ran across your post about revenue link and have made the firm aware of your post.

    The alarms must be screaming in the PR Dept. And now that I'm debunking your lies, they should be going off double!

    >Please be advised that they are trying to contact you to get you your $12.

    Bwah ha ha! Bull! YOU HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING WHO I AM FROM MY POSTS HERE! So that claim of yours MUST be a lie, period! Simply put, you couldn't know if they were trying to contact me or not, since you don't know my personal info!

    Plus, THERE HAS BEEN NO ATTEMPT TO CONTACT ME. NO E-MAILS, LETTERS, OR PHONE CALLS.

    >If you review the program you will note that checks are paid when your account gets to a certain amount well over $12 .

    The insinuation that I didn't know that is an insult, and bogus as well! But the terms I signed up under said 20% of commissions--now the program has been changed to make getting to the new HIGHER minimum d*mn near impossible! :mad:

    >All this aside I have been a member of the USAflagsdirect program and did get my payments and the pop under network that has taken over for them has also done a good job of making me a fair income.

    Yah, Right--and I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona, too.

    >All communications I have had with both firms has been extremely professional and very responsive.

    I suppose working in/owning the place WOULD give you some privileges...

    >I am including Revenuelink's e-mail address here for you in case you would like to contact them directly.

    Didn't you read my post? I said I HAVE contacted them, and they're hiding under a rock!!!

    >With thousands of Revenuelink members,

    A CLASS ACTION SUIT is quite feasable! Thanks for the info!!

    >(a large number of whom I work with) I must say that your experience is unique.

    I'm SURE you "must"! Or else you'll get canned!

    >Everyone that I know who is using Revenuelink as an income source seems to be doing fine and have always gotten paid on time and for the right amounts.

    Yeah, right... :rolleyes:

    >I am sure that if you take the time to contact them

    AGAIN, I SAID, I HAVE contacted them, and they're hiding under a rock!!!

    that you to will be impressed with their responsiveness and their level of customer service.

    NO I AM NOT IMPRESSED THAT THEY ARE HIDING UNDER A ROCK!

    You have highly insulted my intelligence. First you lie and say they are trying to get me my $12 when you have no idea who I am!!!

    Then you PRETEND I haven't contacted them when I said I did!

    And to top it off, you make like I didn't read the Terms. But what YOUR PROBLEM *really* is, is that I DID read the terms--and saw how you changed the terms I signed up under into SCREW-YOU terms so it'd be IMPOSSIBLE to EVER hit the payout figure!

    I also saw your place pretending that it's not the same hole as Revenuelink even though IT ALWAYS SAID REVENUELINK ON USAFlagsDirect's POPUNDER, FROM THE DAY ONE!

    Hmph. "Buddy"... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Geez and I thought I had something there for a minute.

    There must be a CPM networks out there for me somewhere.

    Hmmm... How can I get into ValueClick?

    How to know which network is going belly up next?

    How to sleep at night with 5,000.00 floating around out there.

    Why can't anyone report in real time and pay in goog terms?

    And have good programs, and not a bunch of theives?

    OK, nuff rambling for 8AM I guess.

    CPM MY CPM... WHY ART THOU SO ELUSIVE MY CPM

    I am not exactly sure how to respond to your last post Mr. Leader. I have tried to be accommodating and helpful as well a civil but these values seem to be lost on you some how. I thought why not just resort to scorn, as that seems to be a common ground you might relate to so I first drafted this response:

    Accomodating and helpful only works if what you say is actually true. Otherwise you're part of the problem.

    1. Tell me where in the world they are located? (is it AZ or MN?)

    2. I noticed from the whois info that Revenuelink has been in business since 10-Sep-2001. how did they get "thousands of members" in just two months? ... Inquiring minds want to know. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    3. Where is the advertiser sign up form? LOL

    Wow Nice of you to edit my post. Seems that only you can point out the fault of others. Since my response to you was completely edited in your favor as to not to expose your incompetence It clear that you have a very negative free speech mind set.

    For others who would like to participate in an open and uncensored discussion about this topic may I recommend that you seek out other boards that do not resort to censorship. Wow you are some kind Leader! How did the Taliban ever miss you!

    Save it, bud.

    Your post made sure to include all your original accusations against me as an individual which are typical of scammers who have a lot of hot air but no commissions.

    Far from being incompetant, I saw right through your tissue paper-thin lies, and you responded with distraction tactics.

    As for the supposed politeness and civilness you had in your original response, IT'S NO SUBSTITUTE FOR MY COMMISSIONS!

    Speaking of my commissions, I will make it crystal clear:

    MY COMMISSIONS DISAPPEARED--As in, the record was PURGED--WHEN THE SO-CALLED CHANGEOVER WAS MADE!!!

    I'll say it even clearer yet: MY MONEY WAS STOLEN!


    To expect roses for that SCAM is ridiculous on your part, period.

    BTW, I have absolutely NO qualms in editing out THINLY glossed-over personal attacks. Your cracks about the Taliban will not help!

    As for other forums, most forums would have banned you for spamming before it ever got to this point. A Best Web has already shown you more tolerance than the others would have.

    I see him Peeking out of that burka now looking for a clean cut man with a gun. Hey big leader give me your contact info and I will send you your $12 bucks and I will send you$12 bucks for every person you can prove did not get paid.If you had any guts as a leader you would come out of your cave and show yourself.

    Man I don't want to get into this name calling bull.

    If you say you did not get paid then fine. I never thought that trying to help you out would get things in so much mud.

    Look, The last thing I want is to come in here and spit.

    You have your thoughts and I have mine..In the long run I still wish you well and regret that you got under my skin so much that I felt I had to point out you falts.

    Time to move on...If you want to think you killed me off..just fine.

    :cool:

    Somehow I don't think giving you my contact info would be the wisest thing in the world...That "offer" is sure to be more trouble than it is worth, especially from a guy who started out saying he knew about "attempts to contact me"...

    Hm, he never DID answer Haiko's questions...

    BTW, men don't wear burkas.

    Buddy,

    As you obviously have not answered my repeated questions and apparently your only desire on this board is to flame my trusted moderator ... I must ask you again to either cut the shoot .... or I will have to!

    You tell'em Leader! Without solicitation before posting the link it is SPAM.

    If they see that and don't cancel his account they are just as crooked as the spammer.

    So RevenueLink, Do you condone the posting of unsolicited links in message board areas?

    We would certainly all like to know [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    UPDATE:

    This morning I was AMAZED to find an e-mail from RevenueStink.

    It said that the figures were being transferred...

    I quick logged in to revenueStink! Lo and behold a commission HAD reappeared in my account.

    Only one PROBLEM: It's 5% short! The Terms I signed up under said 20%...that'd be $12. But suddenly 5% or so of it seems to have disappeared into cyberspace! (CURRENT terms at Share-a-Sale say 15%--but I did NOT sign up under the CURRENT terms! I signed up for TWENTY PERCENT commissions!)

    And that still doesn't address the fact that H will be well frozen by the time the minimum payout can be made off of 65% of "whatever"! (Note that the specific figures on their site are only EXAMPLES! No CONCRETE figures are showing anywhere at the time of this posting!)

    Reading the Terms again, it does say "In the event the total monthly amount due to you for any month is less than fifty dollars, RevenueLink will not be obligated to pay you until such subsequent month when the cumulative amount due to you exceeds thirty dollars or, in any event, no later than the close of each quarter regardless of the cumulative amount due."

    Note 1: Well which is it? 30 or 50!

    Note 2: Yah, I'll really be checking the mail daily for my $12, make that $8, check. Or will it whittle down to $0 by then?

    Stay tuned...
