    Default GOptions scam

    I have had really bad experience with GOptions' affiliate program and don't recommend it to anybody. I'm sure they are skimming and scamming me, so I just want to hear if anyone else have had any experience with this.

    If you continue to make this ridiculous unsubstantiated claims in public while using a false name and email, then you are certainly not helping your cause. Let's just say that there was an issue, a mistake, or a problem. How do you expect to solve it in this way? Unless you have no interest in such solutions and prefer simply tarnishing our name. We don't have a single complaint against our affiliate program and for good reason: we pay by the 5th of each month and we do it every month. We don't skimp or shave. We use a well established affiliate tracking software in hasoffers that eliminates such claims (at least to some degree). But I nevertheless checked and you dont exist in our system. No Simon. No Johnson. So either state your claim or please refrain from such dubious ploys at damaging us - it won't work !

    Thanks

    What makes you think his surname is Johnson?

    And Lee, I see you run a portal and an affiliate program in the same niche. I don't even need to do a Google search to know there are complaints against your company.

    Lee, the post says he has had a bad experience and that he thinks you're scamming/scimming. It is (basically) asking if anyone else feels the same way or if anyone who has worked with them feel differently.

    The poster may well be a paid spammer & might not ever come back to post anything here again - who knows. However, to come out with something such as "refrain from dubious ploys at damaging us" along with the claim that you do not have a single complaint against your affiliate program is a bit much, don't you think? It sounds a bit bullying in nature and quite unprofessional if someone can find a single claim - AND I'M CERTAIN people can.

    In fact, there is a complaint about your brand owning a portal as well. I'm not going to link to it, as it reflects poorly upon your program (largely to the way your program responded to the question) - but we both know it is there.

    So, my advice is to come at this person using a bit more of a respectful and humble tone - even if he is a one time, two time poster.

    I just had to jump in to comment on this one.
    I'm also a binary options affiliate and work with quite a few brands and have very close ties to them (have direct contact with some CEOs and COOs as well).

    I can tell you that Hasoffers is a great piece of affiliate tracking software, but is really ****** for gaming (they admit this themselves). Almost all the brokers that I work with who use Hasoffers are really struggling with it as it either misses some FTDs altogether (some forms of payments don't always track through for example) or sometimes misfires.

    This means that many brokers shave deposits either by accident or intentionally unless they manually go in and add the missing deposits. I see your brand uses Spot 2.0.

    The only way you can show users that you're not shaving is by giving them direct read access to their customers via the Spotoption API, and even then if you mess up your cookies they still might not always show. I know a broker who I worked with in the past who had problems where the Spotoption CRM would regsiter a lead to one affiliate and Hasoffers would register it to a different one. I don't know what the issue was but I think there was a problem of cookies not being overwritten or something.

    Anyway, saying that Hasoffers solves the problem and mitigates shaving is a joke as Hasoffers is very often the very cause of the shaving.

    I am saying that this guy seems to me a joker. Not discounting the actual claim but the person behind. Reason being, on the same date I have found 3 identical (copy paste) claims in the same vain. None before (and no, I have no clue of any other such claim as none has ever made it to me, and none since.

    As for the issue of hasoffers, I really love it. Problem is as woja explained in articulate terms - tracking is an issue with more scale. We have reached that level of late (where the sheer number of FTDs is simply to great to manually check each and every one for validity - yet we do and I have a team of people that do just that). As such, we are looking at changing our software in the coming 3-4 weeks.

    But back to the "claim" itself, please note - not mention of software or other issue was mentioned. Meaning, there's no actual claim. This is why I turned to my defensive mode. Yes, he (I said Johnson as that's the name he chose in one other post elsewhere while later taking a different name yet not bothering to change the text of the post - yes - word for word).

    I don't know what bad experiences means. I know if I have an affiliate with 6 conversions (in hasoffers leads are also conversions just with a ZERO payout) and 2 payouts of say $300, then the affiliate is owed said $600. At the beginning of each month, we remind affiliates to send us invoices (they can use those created via the HO system to make it easy) and send them to us signed for processing. Dead simple
    No such thing as an unpaid affiliate

    I am not sure where the third duplicate post is to be, but I searched for it here and in google and did not find it. The reason there are two in this thread is that I caught the duplicates days ago and merged the threads.

    Leemore --- PLEASE READ --- I am customer at Goptions.com


    Hello Lee More.. CEO of Goptions.com

    My name is William Rising. I recently signed up with your company by a fellow named David Argos. He told me he show me around the system, help me double my money and told me to max out my credit cards on the spot. Upon signing up ..I didn't seem worth his time 'for he never kept in contact. When I contacted goptions.com I spoke with Brian Friedman (boss) and was swept to Dan Henderson as an account manager. I actually did not know this at the time .. I figured Dan was the person who signed me up.

    I did not realize I'd be trasfered. Only after through Dan's guidance I lost over 2000 dollars and 100% of my balance in less than a week... I did research and found out I'd been swept. I have been consistently asking for guidance and training. I have reieved none. I was told there were trades as easy as if it were 3+1=4 .. however the master trader handeling my account lost all of my money with a win ratio of about 10%. Now Brian, Dan, and David have deflected accountability and my account is being shoved under the Rug.


    I want to win.. I want to be shown how to make the trades like I was promised.


    I need your help because i'm being shafted by all levels of management. I know their is opportunity .. I have faith that we can work things out. I'm reaching out through here because I felt it vitally important that CEO of your own company...... you should know about this. I need your help Lee ...


    Dan Henderson is a good guy.. just an unfortunate losing streak on my dollar. (I've been cashed out). Nita from Support... (very rude). Brian Freidman (doesn't want to make waves and I feel wants me to go away).




    You can ask Brian Friedman to pull up the recorded phone calls to do further investigation.

    In reply to the post directly above me:

    For the millionth time:

    1. Before you deposit any money to any website (casino, binary, poker, forex, etc.) please read the Terms and Conditions of the respective company.

    2. Do not expect the casino/forex site/poker room/betting site/binary broker to teach you how to win. If you win, they lose. If you lose, they win. (perhaps with the exception of poker)

    It's ridiculous to ask the broker to teach you how to win. If they offer you this, then politely refuse. Always learn strategies and winning guides from third party independent websites and not from what the brokers or casinos, forex sites or whatever have to "teach".

    3. Understand how bonuses work (if you've had read the T&Cs you'd already know). They will lock your account balance in until you match certain wagering/investment requirements. Don't accept bonuses if you want to have access to withdrawals at any moment in time.

    90% of these things could be avoided by just reading the T&Cs before signing up. The other 10% can be avoided by applying some common sense (like, not accepting "help" from people who make money when you lose).

    The problem is, were you told you were investing?

    Did you lose money because the investment lost, or were you gambling and not investing in anything?

    hi SimonJ , this is Marvin from the SignalsKing team, yes we had a bad experience with Goptions, Lee more and Danny Stevens , we havent being paid since February, they received 13 depositors to be precise, all verified with KYC, but the payment is due, Danny doesnt reply to the emails, neither does Lee more, they are nice people on the beginning but once they bite they disappear, best not to do business with them unless you get prepaid. hope this helps to other affiliates not to get harmed by noshave affiliate network.

    Same S**t with my communication with Danny Stevens in Skype and email`s. I am waiting for reply and my commission fee payment. It is up to you "Leemore" how we will solve this problem and how we will react on this complain.

    Hey just want to add I know the Binary industry very well indeed and Has Offers is a joke.
    Depending on the package you have there is a function made just for shaving where you
    can decided how much it fires etc. It is far from a safe tracking platform.
    It's built to benefit the offer owner not affiliates.

    As Woja mentioned above... The best thing for the affiliates is to access the Spot Option API
    or the back office for the campaign in question to get the real stats. Although even then it is
    not fool proof and can still be manipulated.

    No idea if Go Options are scamming or not as I personally have never dealt with them but
    I know many brokers who play with payments or make excuses about why you can't be paid your full CPA.

    If you are an affiliate with a good name in that industry you should ask for prepayments when
    dealing with a new broker, especially if other brokers can vouch for you
