You're Kidding me!

Warriors,

I think PayDotCom.com has a script error.

A few days ago I watched a friend of mine enter random names like dave, kim, makingmoney, etc as usernames in a PDC link code. Here is what happened. After the link redirected to the site it had the code in it for, with the name mike, kim, or whatever that affiliate got imported into his PDC acct as a real person so that he could email them and ask for their promotion of his new site. He ended up with tons of new affiliates since PDC has over 20 million registered affiliates with them.

    20 Million Registered Affiliates... That's a little hard to believe

    Did you report this problem to Mike Filsaime?

      Let me reinstate this. PDC gives a string of numbers that goes up in count with each new registered affiliate. The number that my buddy had represented that his account was over the 20th million registrant. So our assumption was PDC has over 20 million nicknames registered to it. He did like makingmoney, kim, dave, rich, etc in this string of codes and it imported that real affiliate into his account. He could do like and easy 100 an hour.

          We will let Mike resolve this so I better not share, sorry. Mike is a good guy we just wanted to point out the basic facts here without revealing. Kinda wierd about the flaw is all. Please DO NOT PM me on this, ONLY Mike or his crew please and I can point it out privately if I know you are with Mike.

            You're exaggerating with the 20 million figure on purpose right?

              No, he imported around 500 affiliates day one. PDC seems to have 20 million affiliates or/and accts registered unless they started their registrant count high from the start.

                I think I get what you're saying. Sounds kind of obvious, but it'll get him some random afiliates if they decide to promote.

                I informed Mike of this thread and I also forwarded it to the tech department at PDC.

                Although we're not completely sure what you are trying to say, I can tell you this much...

                PDC does not have 20 million registered members.

                More to come...

                Mike

                P.S. My # is 239 - they didn't start it that high.

                  Good Job, thanks man, just weird is all. Kinda makes me worried that my few affiliates could become loads of other peoples. My buddy does not have time for this as he has lots of affiliates but yet he wanted to see how many times it would work and if it would just time out but it never did, it kept going. We both know affiliates that are your own are the best and with names like dave, kim, etc these premium names were probably registered with PDC a while back and are not active anyways. Thanks for looking into this. I will pass it along to my friend that Mike will resolve this and I will have him cease and desist now that we know it is a flaw.

                  Looks like he is trying to say that you can have ANY affiliate on your list...

                  All you have to know is there PDC affiliate ID.

                  Man 20 million... I doubt that is possible... If it was then 10,000 members would have 2000 aff Id's each which is ridiculous.

                  I'm also in the 3 figure range for my PDC ID just like Mike Amb.

                  I hope Mike DOES get it straightened out fast! I bet anyone here could figure it out in a few minutes!

                    20 million ha?

                    The dude better sorts that number out, because it's screaming "I'm a lier, and trying to inflate the number to make my service look big! I hope noobie sheep fall for it."
