    Who owes the Money, BeFree or Ziff Davis?
    BeFree says Ziff Davis, Ziff Davis says BeFree.

    I emailed BeFree because for a year I have not been paid money owed to me.

    I get this reply from BeFree

    ----
    Dear Michael,

    Ziff Davis terminated their relationship with our company as of 8/13/05. Unfortunately, the only email address we have for them is: affiliate@ziffdavis.com . Your recourse for any outstanding commission payments is exclusively with Ziff Davis.
    Sincerely,
    BFAST Partner Gateway Support Team

    Since the affiliate@ziffdavis.com email does not work nor does affiliates@ziffdavis.com (they don't reply) I searched the Ziff Davis Corp site and found an email for a Steve Sutton.

    I emailed him and he replied and said that BeFree was suppose to handle all payments and that BeFree would not give them information to contact affiliates to inform us the program was terminated as of 8/13/2005

    But to his knowledge all affiliates were paid unless they did not meet the minimum 10 dollars.

    I replied with a Screen shot of reporting.net showing him what I am owed is over the 10 dollar limit.

    He replied with he will contact Befree directly to see why I wasn't paid.

    My question is does anyone who has to pay me? Cause I sure as hell don't. All I know is that I am owed money.

    I think Ziff Davis has to pay you. Ziff Davis profited from your sales and they are the ones who owe you money - unless they sent the money to BeFree, and it has not been sent to affiliates from BeFree. In BeFree the merchant has all of their affiliates' contact information, so that should not have been an issue.

    Well it just got a bit more Bizarre.
    ZiffDavis still claims that BeFree should of paid us.
    And BeFree has deleted them completely from the network where you can't even see the stats.

    Good thing I took a screen shot before they deleted them.
