    Hello Merchants:

    I manage a few programs in a few different networks and I have been a lot of fraudulent activity from one "sly" affiliate who is signing up under many aliases and sending fraudulent sales. This affiliate is from Syracuse NY and signs up as many different aliases, but goes to one PO Box.

    This has become a hassle, but this affiliate has also been sending very low numbers of conversions under multiple affiliate names and using other URL's, if you manually approve.

    FYI.

    I am not sure how this general information can help anyone...I am pretty sure every merchant has heard of this very common fraud....Sounds like it is new to you and you are just thinking aloud.

    Yes I've noticed this before as well. I happened to notice (in my program) applicants from a particular Canadian addy. Luckily they to applied on the same day. Can you say DENIED! Not too smart, eh? (Sorry for the Canadian ref, had to do it though)
