    Nor is there any contact information whatsoever on their website, other than generic email addresses. And their so called Privacy Policy is worthless. Seems like an A#1 scam to me.

    GiveAnything moved to Befree, that is why the link doesn't work. Evidently the toolbar folks didn't update their links.

    Except for Overstock these guys would need a million pilfered clicks to earn a case of spamm and some sterno to cook it on..

    Maybe Shawn can find out under what name & domain they used to populate their merchant list. Wonder if one of those syndicate partners at Looksmart -FindWhat -Knoodle or the PPC template clones feed keyword traffic into this POS. The old "drain the keyword pot" game with PRIZE traffic fueled by spamm. New hook is swapp the affiliate ID#s in case the listing is from a ABWer.

    Guess this confirms then what I asked in this forum on NOV 6th about this place.

    I had a big lengthy discussion with Kanoodle about search results all clicking on my PPC's, 1 click through and no pages visited from a site that was heavily into promoting this toolbar.
    Of course they saw nothing wrong, I just lose visitors as I lowered my bids so they could go leach off higher bidding sites.
    Anyone have a good repore with Kanoodle and can raise this issue on some of their search partners? It was like talking to a brick wall when I tried.
    Even better, get them to give me a credit on the clicks they ate up at my expense.

    Clarified point: Giveanything.com is probably not related, except by some accidental incestious middleman link, to the pseudo domain I used in the above example. Now if Giveranything is an affiliate, swapping ID's over Gift Certificates, then a DNA test is in order.

    "Wonder what ID they're going to use to signup under the networks merchants...GiveToMyCharity.com"

    Sure would hate to get sued by those 2 when I never gaveanything ...not even a click.

    WW ..I was just adlibing on the PPC search tie in to those who play games with parasites and shopping bars. Maybe my Physic powers, or those of my Parrot, kicked in and revealed something.

    This one probably throws a new twist into the dirty underwear. They might just record your CC# and on page 7 of the legalese you allow them to shop for you based upon your credit limit.

    Hey you gave them implied or express permission in their EULA for the Freebee or Chance at a prize. You also get some cash back for using their shopping Bar this Christmas by next Christmas if they're in business.

    WINKWA,

    Connie is correct, (thank you Connie)! They have not followed my instructions to disable LinkShare links.

    Maybe they have stopped reading emails? I only sent out emails every week for a month reminding affiliate partners of the switch!

    If you have questions regarding GiveAnything.com, please feel free to contact me about my program, at anytime.

    Hey guys, after running a fake order through Cashtoolbar in CJ, I found that the company that fuels it is called Browseraid (www.browseraid.com) and the contact name is Jeff Lawrence. I apologize if somebody already touched on this. My company (beckersurf.com) has removed them from our program. Thanks for the tips!

    Keith,
    Thank you very much for that contact information.

    Joseph-
    I do not understand what you are implying...but like I said before, they are no longer in the GiveAnything system, as they did not sign up for our new program. Yes we are listed on Cash Tool Bar, but they have not replied to my requests for removal. The LinkShare dead link comes up, and they are not making any money off of us.
