    Problem With Fake Bing Ads
    Not sure if this is the right place to post this so forgive me if I got it wrong.

    Does anyone have any experience with fake Bing ads which target your website? We seem to have quite a mess on our hands.

    Someone is taking out Bing ads and using my website's name. These ads have nothing to do with my website and the company is not one I know anything about.

    We found this out because affiliate companies brought it to our attention with some very lovely email threats - nice right? Ugh!

    The ads look something like this:

    Famous Footwear Codes
    www.mywebsitename.com
    Get 70% off your purchase. Just
    click the link above.

    These ads look like they were placed by my website. But when clicked they redirect to another website that is NOT AT ALL a part of my company.

    I have called and filed a complaint with Bing, called BrandVerity and replied to the emails from various affiliate programs. Is there something else I should be doing?

    Thanks.

    I have had this happen to a PPC affiliate I work with for other merchants where she was targeted by a company from Argentina. They are trying to get you booted by the merchant and possibly the network.

    Recommend taking out a Brand Verity account to verify all the information. Contact me directly after you do and I may be able to help track down the affiliate.

    Move to the Unethical Affiliates forum. Not to say that PennyPincher is unethical as I know her personally.
