    An other Affiliate Marketing Scam
    We all know about the 1 800 numbers placed on top and bottom of most pages of a merchant web site.
    I've seen worse a few minutes ago, A merchant on CJ offering a product with a BUY button. You click on the buy button and you have a new window opening with the following:
    "Sorry, we currently do not offer this product on our web site, please call 1 800 XXX to talk to a specialist and purchase directly over the phone."

    I won't promote any merchants who put an 800 number in a noticable place of my landing page.

    I started with this merchant a few years ago, made high ticket sales.
    There was no big phone #, last year update I saw the "Call 1 800 XXX for a free consultation"
    For this week new upgrade of their web site, they have that JavaScript on the buy button.
    We're never safe.

    That's the nice thing about pitching online only applications like ours..you can't buy it any other way (fyi, we do have an 800 for customer service though). Also, watch out for the new big thing happenning in the voip world..."click to call" (no, we're not implementing it).
