    Thumbs down Affiliate CPA issue, accounts from same IP (RESOLVED)

    Please I want to warn all readers of the forum that we maybe have been scammed by this company affpower.com.
    This company after having done work for a whole month to make a test contact us by saying that we do not pay due to the total of 1,200 euro consider why our traffic is encouraged.
    Now our affiliated manager Fernanda or Fernanda C does not respond to our messages.
    We as a company we trusted Italian but we were cheated. Please ask for help to be paid for our hard work.
    We ask everyone to be paid for our work, how we behave?
    For administrators of the Forum in private I will gladly send all the evidence in the case.
    I pray for all who read this message to be very careful because this company will do everything to not pay for your work.
    In the case affpower.com've made a mistake and we will pay our commission will be my job to keep you informed immediately

    I work with cpa for a mountly cpa test , for 200 euro for each cpa .

    But today after we can make 10 registrations and 6 cpa we received this answer:

    the Fraud department just closed the period, yesterday night. After that all of us receive a fraud check of all the leads

    We have use email Marketing with our Gambling Emails DB.

    Before we start to send the email I asked my affiliated manager Fernanda Carr if I could do email campaign and she said yes! Including all the conversations I have skype recorded on my PC.

    Now tell me why they waited until now to stop me and say that I do not want to pay? Why now do not want and not have to pay for our work?

    Could you please help me?

    What i to make for received our payment ?

    It's possible i go to police ?

    No offence mate, but every month we have brand new members sign up and post sob stories just like yours with regard to CPA and accounts being closed for fraud. The casino wants your business and if it was legitimate traffic they would pay you because they would want more decent traffic from you. If you are incentivising your traffic to sign up then that is fraud.

    I think, that the best way - ask to Fernanda, to change all your players from
    CPA to Revenue Share models. If your traffic is good, you make more money with you players
    on Revenue Share then CPA. If you traffic is not good, affiliate program don't loose money.
    So, i think this is win/win situation for both sides.

    Yes but after this situation we can stop to work with this brand.
    We want our test money and we want to stop to work , because we have send regular traffic and no incentived traffic , because now we change the plan ?

    Other , i don't know the numbers of deposits and total deposit of my players and now for affpower is possible to post all numbers of deposits.

    Other and if i try for this solution and affpower offer me only the 20% revenue?

    As i know, they get 45% for all affiliates without any problem.
    If you traffic is good, 100% that sooner o lather Revenue Share brings you several times
    more money then CPA.

    Hello gameman,

    both -casino and program are acting like the Mob. They are no longer sponsor of GPWA.

    Read two threads, then you know, where the wind is blowing. The 2nd thread shows some truths about the program and the representative, you worked with.

    Invest 20 minutes of your time. It pays!

    Warning: Be Aware of playing Deuce Club and Cosmik Casino (https://www.gpwa.org/forum/warning-a...no-213253.html)

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for joining this lovely thread so late but I was in between meetings all day. Just now got home.

    Regarding Antonio, I can tell that our legal department already contacted him in order to solve the issue.

    As said by @Ixian above,
    No offence mate, but every month we have brand new members sign up and post sob stories just like yours with regard to CPA and accounts being closed for fraud. The casino wants your business and if it was legitimate traffic they would pay you because they would want more decent traffic from you. If you are incentivising your traffic to sign up then that is fraud.
    We love good traffic and we are willing to pay for it. We also have a very long list of affiliates earning very high CPA on an ongoing basis with our two casinos.

    I know it's really hard to prove incentivized traffic but our Fraud Department team has many, many years in the industry and can tell that his traffic matches the profile.

    As Antonio requested, we are willing to post the deal details (Please note this details were already provided to Antonio by our Legal Department)

    Antonio started to work with us on August 20, sending until yesterday 6 players. By the end of each period (yesterday) we run a fraud check on every player that joined our casinos and we found the following

    Player 1: Deposited €40 on 8/20/2014 - Last log in 8/20/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €0 in balance, invalid phone number
    Player 2: Deposited €50 on 8/21/2014 - Last log in 8/21/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €245.60 in balance, voice mail (17 calls)
    Player 3: Deposited €50 on 8/23/2014 - Last log in 8/23/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €13 in balance, invalid phone number
    Player 4: Deposited €50 on 8/26/2014 - Last log in 8/27/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €194.00 in balance, voice mail (13 calls)
    Player 5: Deposited €40 on 8/26/2014 - Last log in 8/27/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €99 in balance, declined call (10 calls)
    Player 6: Deposited €40 on 8/29/2014 - Last log in 8/29/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €93.11 balance, voice mail (6 calls)

    We usually close this kind of accounts on the spot but since he insisted so vehemently that his traffic is legit we decided to double check all the leads and give a chance to the deal.

    I pushed our Legal Department to offer switching to a RevShare deal that will include this players so as to cover the min test costs at least. As @Moonlight Cat mentioned:
    I think, that the best way - ask to Fernanda, to change all your players from CPA to Revenue Share models. If your traffic is good, you make more money with you players on Revenue Share then CPA. If you traffic is not good, affiliate program don't loose money.
    So, i think this is win/win situation for both sides.
    Let me also quote a fragment of our signed IO

    • Locked players will be excluded from the CPA – locked players being defined as a player whose account is locked by the casino room for either fraudulent behavior or abuse.
    • Any traffic deemed to be Fraudulent / incentivized / system or advantaged traffic by Affpower Limited, will not be paid for.
    • Players with invalid details aren't eligible for CPA
    There's no secret behind this, there's no intention to get our hands dirty. Not for this small amount of money or any other greater amount. First of all because it is not the way we (I) work. Second, knowing that newbie around can come and complain about whatever they feel like it.

    Anyone in the industry knows that coming to this forum it's an easy way to complain and turning any claim into valid. I know that many trolls will be flying around this thread trying to get some kind of "personal satisfaction" bashing us out but, at this opportunity I won't be dealing with any of these.

    Any of our affiliates can certify that we pay, even if in some cases the campaign wasn't that good we give time for NGR to go up, we give a chance to all our partners since they were the first to give us a chance trusting and promoting us. Play fair, we pay.

    We still have a pending chat with Antonio tomorrow and I really hope that we can solve this issue in an amicable way.

    Personal experience here - I recall years ago, I joined an online casino as a player (won't name the casino as the name is irrelevant). I received phone call after phone call after phone call - sometimes during the day, other times in the middle of the night. Every single time, I declined the call and let it go to voicemail.

    If I am playing at an online casino, I personally do not wish to be bothered with telephone conversation. My thought process was that if there's a need to contact me, send an email.

    When signing up with other online casinos after that, I considered (but did not) putting in invalid phone numbers.

    I'm not saying that I think the players were registered legitimately.

    I'm also not saying that I think the players were registered under fraudulent terms with respect to the CPA deal.

    I'm saying that not answering the phone, declining a call, and even putting in an invalid phone number is not something "out of the ordinary" from a player's perspective.

    Fernanda, is there anything else that causes you to believe that the traffic is fraudulent?

    "legal department"
    "Fraud Department"

    A lot of desks within a small area in a two-room office.

    You have forgotten the "player scam department", the "competitor blackmailing department" and the "infiltrating johnjohn24 into GPWA to discredit a competitor department".

    You can't light a blown out candle if you are standing in the rain.

    Hi Shay,

    Of course, please read

    Player 1: Deposited €40 on 8/20/2014 - Last log in 8/20/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €0 in balance, invalid phone number
    Player 2: Deposited €50 on 8/21/2014 - Last log in 8/21/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €245.60 in balance, voice mail (17 calls)
    Player 3: Deposited €50 on 8/23/2014 - Last log in 8/23/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €13 in balance, invalid phone number
    Player 4: Deposited €50 on 8/26/2014 - Last log in 8/27/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €194.00 in balance, voice mail (13 calls)
    Player 5: Deposited €40 on 8/26/2014 - Last log in 8/27/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €99 in balance, declined call (10 calls)
    Player 6: Deposited €40 on 8/29/2014 - Last log in 8/29/2014 - Required Baseline: €35 - €93.11 balance, voice mail (6 calls)
    a) Just above the baseline
    b) Money in balance but never logged in again (I won't be surprised if after this thread they log in again )
    c) Static IP from the same provider for 3 of the players
    d) 3 players have logged in from one IP, logged out some minutes later from another IP and the other way around
    e) Only one of the players responded on chat

    I am sure there's an explanation for all of this but, all together? Don't think so.

    C & D I would consider valid reasoning to suspect fraud. E a possible supporting reason. B (last login) is also a supporting reason for suspicion (all in my opinion).

    A (just above the baseline) is definitely not a reason to suspect fraud. Most people ask for an amount that is just "on the bus". Consequently, one gets what they ask for.

    I do agree with others in this matter (generally speaking). Rev share or even a hybrid deal (with a small cpa and rev share) clears up most of the wondering.

    Just to keep you guys posted, this email was sent to Mr Antonio this morning

    Dear Antonio,

    Having reviewed your affiliate account as part of our standard review processes, we have reason to believe that your account was not operated in good faith. (This includes fraudulent / incentivized / system or advantaged traffic.)

    In line with our Terms and Conditions (http://www.affpower.com/tcs/), your affiliate account has been locked and any payable balance frozen until further investigation on your traffic is being carried out.

    Please note that we will not accept any future applications made by you , your company or partners on any of our brands until the investigation arrives to its end.

    Any questions regarding your account status can be directed to me via email.
    I personally offered this affiliate to switch his leads into revenue share and check how the leads behave. He rejected the offer.

    We will now carry on any relevant investigation to decide the nature of this leads.

    Boys can only say that they are great villains. Do you realize?
    We just did our job.

    Dear Fernanda one thing we prove that there are not just writing it the same IP? it's nice to exculpate himself in this way. Do you realize? Not considered a scam what you doing to me?

    We do one thing for me now past players in revenue share, because it is not fair that I cheated at all. Now surely you do not accept either of the players pass in revenue share I already know.

    You have to be ashamed to scam people in this way, our contract is in CPA now want to move in revenue, so we do ok for now.

    But look to prove that the players all have the same IP as you said, are lies, Show us who are themselves IP.

    Another thing, how do you assess whether a player is good or bad in just a few days? But did you know to do your job?

    But I repeat only one thing you should be ashamed of what you do to people looking for work. All the world will now be alerted to what you do. I will lose my 1,200 euro earned, but instead you now? after that in the whole world will know how to work and how to cheat people?

    Now I am forced to accept the change in revenue share not only to lose everything but my idea is always to have been cheated, because I'm being forced to accept the revenue share.

    Last thing I put here the last few sentences of our conversation on skype:

    revenue share you offer me for the old players? 50%?
    [10:09:34] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: yes
    [10:09:39] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: no problem
    [10:09:47] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: but please write me emails
    [10:10:35] Antonio: no i write in the forum
    [10:10:40] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: ok
    [10:10:50] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: emails or forum, it's ok with me
    [10:10:57] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: I want this to be public
    [10:11:04] Fernanda C - AFFPOWER: it's better

    Antonio,

    As I said, yes... I prefer any discussion will be carried out in public to avoid misinformation or info manipulation.

    I offered 50% revshare for you and I give you my word that if this players turn to be legit, you will get your CPA.

    I am setting a 15 day and 30 day reminder so I come to the forum to update you all about the players' activity.

    If your traffic is good you will end up earning even more on RevShare than CPA. Let us know if the offer sounds fair and you accept it.

    Fernanda I have to accept this scam just because you are forced, what else could I do?

    The stats of my players who have written on the forum you could modify them without problems, only you know the truth.

    Look now to the testing of players with the same IP, add in the forum please?

    Now that I have been forced to accept the revenue share what you will do? I will capture the stats of the players? That is, they will play and in my panel will not be anything? True? I already know that will go well.

    Today, however, my partners and my lawyer will make a complaint for fraud of what happened to the Italian postal police.

    Now our task is to inform the world about what happened in order not to fall into the same scam other people working as we do, you should just be ashamed.

    However, I am forced to reluctantly accept your offer.
