    Fraudulent CJ Affiliate Applications from the UK
    For about two weeks my CJ program has been getting fraudulent applications for high Google PR sites all using unique UK email addresses. I have been reporting these but it seems to be a waste of time. Today I get 12!!

    I find it hard to believe that merchants have to report these and that the network doesn't see this trend. My program is Acess level so I have to go through the automated request queue i.e. no direct account support.

    There is a new affiliate advisory board but merchants with CJ are left in the lurch!! This has been discussed with other AM's: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=88761

    CJ, we know that you view our forums daily, how about a response??

    Chuck,

    How are the applications fraudulent, and is there any pattern among the applications such as the company name being in all caps, or an email format such as firstnamelastinitial@domain.com?
