Whew, thanks to DL Guard!

by Dennis Becker 23 replies
I received an email this morning:
Hello Administrator,

Could you please send me the download link again? Apparently, the email was in my junk folder. Tried the link but has expired.

My receipt no. is (removed)

Much obliged

which isn't unusual. So I went to DL Guard to give the download link another 24 hours. Imagine my surprise when I found out that several dozen people, all with different names and email addresses, had attempted to use that same receipt code beginning in January not long after the original purchaser had made the purchase.

None of them got the download, and I had no clue this was happening until this bright guy thought he could get the expiration date extended for himself.

I wonder how many other receipt codes have been passed around since I started selling, is there a way to tell?

    Maybe you could do a search in Google for the actual order number?

    It seems like DL Guard is definitely a good investment.

      Good thought. I did a search just now and it didn't appear in Google

      Then I had a shivering thought, which led to a more shivering revelation...

      I did a search using Alexa, and sure enough, there it was, the link to the download page.

      Can't Alexa be stopped from publishing links to supposedly secure content? I've recently become aware, through my logs, that pages I set up with special pricing (such as for subscribers who had a PayPal payment fail and I was letting them back in at their original price) were being found using Alexa, I had to move those pages to a different folder. Then after I gave out those links a couple times, all of a sudden they were indexed by Alexa as well, so I had to password protect those folders.

      Sometimes being an IM'er isn't fun ... but most days I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Thank you Dennis. I was wondering how long this new forum would go before we could start an "I LOVE SAM" thread.

    Let's all gather around and speak of the wonder that is Sam Stevens and his marvelous DL Guard.

    I myself not only use DL Guard to control all my products, get great service from Sam when it comes to techie stuff, but also am forever in Sam's debt that he makes me feel that my life has more purpose because I don't spend my days holed up on a soggy old sofa waiting for customers to call for tech support.

    Next ...

      DL Guard is wonderful. I use it as well even on free products. Some people get upset that I'm collecting their email address, but then again, I guess they don't need to have my free product to live do they?

    Why just a thread ?

    I think it deserves a new subforum all of its own.

    I never know what to say to these threads. I feel like I should say something, but would prefer to not sound like a tool.

    So.....thanks!

    I owe my business success to this forum, so trust me, I appreciate each and every one of you

    And with that, I've now broken my wish to NOT sound like a tool!

    Oh well, might as well embrace my tool-ishness.



    Dennis, I'll PM you and I can check out the details in your DLGuard if you wish!

    cheers

      LOL, what a tool!

      Now go back to watching daytime soaps from your spotty sofa and waiting for us to call you for tech support.
