    Ignorance
    Has anybody looked at one of the new advertisers on CJ? It's the work from home people out of Canada.

    They offer a handsome $75 per sale (on a $39 product) but collect lead information before your traffic can ever get through three additional pages (two folds each) of text.

    This is blatant arbitrage. I have already asked CJ why the $75 commission per sale of a $39 product hasn’t raised any red flags.

    PS – Fresh work from home leads are between $3 and $20 per when you buy in bulk.

    I'm not sure if ignorance is an art or a science but CJ seems to be practicing it rather regularly.

    You mean a multi-level marketing company called herbalife.

    How did you figure out it was Herbalife? The site seems to do a good job masking who they are. I thought they were just a lead company making a list of the gullable.

    BTW, This paragraph has me sold on the product:

    "When my husband and I were expecting our second baby I began to picnic about making ends meet."
    Oddly, when I am worried about my financial future, I am overcome with a desire to go a picnic too!

    The point is that they have every intention of getting leads from you for free and do not intend to every pay an affilate, at all.

    They intend to make the actual sales from the free leads you provide.

    If one actually slips through and buys from the site, watch those reversals. "Other" is a great reason.

    Just another sleeze bag CJ merchant.

    Ya - I know. I didn't want to taint the thread with that, but yes, that's who they are (at least a larger distributorship within Herbalife anyway).

    I'm just amazed (well not really) that CJ allowed it. It's just overly blatant in addition to being overtly obvious it’s a scam.

    Last I checked the math any dolt could see they are losing at $27 per sale whether in Canada OR Utah.
