Some of you know I test a lot of different traffic sources.

I find a lot of scammy stuff out there masquerading as "real" visitors.

I came across on this forum, so I thought I'd test it.

I sent traffic to a landing page containing links for a CPA offer. lifted the CPA link off my page and started sending "traffic" directly to it.

I asked them to stop and start sending traffic to the right link and they refused. They said they were sending traffic to the right link and stuck with that story all the way to a Paypal dispute.

According to them, "We are not responsible for your mistakes." And refused to stop sending traffic to my CPA offer.

So there you have it.

Why would they refuse to send traffic to the right link?

Hopefully, this will save someone a few dollars and some disappointment.

Be careful out there!
