    AB Lambdin & Carabella
    Had the decency to tell me they were leaving Linkshare on April 30, and all banners etc are inactive.

    HOWEVER in typical rude carabella fashion, they notified me on May 1!

    Anybody else?

    Ceasing: Carabella.com & ABLambdin.com
    FYI. Got this email this morning
    Dear Valued Affiliate,

    On April 30th, 2007, we will be ending the Carabella.com & ABLambdin.com affiliate programs through LinkShare.

    After April 30, 2007, all Carabella.com & ABLambdin.com placements on your site will need to be removed as our LinkShare program will no longer be active.

    We would like to thank you for your support of the ABLambdin.com & Carabella.com affiliate programs.

    Thank you,

    The Carabella.com & ABLambdin.com Affiliate Team

    Nice that they gave a day's notice. How thoughtful of them.

    Yup, how sweet of them.

    If I remember correctly, there was a problem with them going "inactive" a few months back. I wonder if it's a pro-active decision on their part or a non-payment to LS issue.

    Here's a thread from February:

    Called Linkshare
    They claim that the merchant is required to give 30 days notice and will end their obligation on MAY 31!

    With this merchant however, I think it is wiser to remove links immediately

    I agree. According to Synergy Analytics reports it took them until March 30 to pay their January commissions. Unfortunately I put my links back after they were reinstated several months ago, and sold a lot of their product. I should probably just write that off to experience. I'll be shocked if they pay any of their February or March commissions.

    Their email said nothing about payments being honored and gave no contact information.
