It might sound a bit odd but it actually happens.
Suppose there is a company X & a company Y.
Both competitors in the same industry.
X has great figures in programs like shareasale/others
Y does not like that.....what Y does is that it employs fake affiliates and purposely create a helpless situation for company Y by forcing X to reverse a lot of the amount. This would spoil the figures of X.

I was actually thinking about something similar to this just the other day- merchants who buy through their own bogus affiliate links in order to boost their EPC. Maybe they would think the network fees would be worth it if it attracts affiliates or something. Surely there is something the prevents this.
