    I know Steven has contacted me asking me for info which i gave him - but that was about all - I am not sure what the outcome of it all was. Considering this guy continues to abuse affiliates especially GPWA members I do not think much was done yet to date.

    Its obvious Nir or this affiliate program has had nothing done against them for this.

    I hope something gets done but like many other issues we have seen historically I am not optimistic yet

    We are also getting it as well on two different email addresses!

    This is awesome GPWA.

    Integra Partners - definitely SPAM, many complaints but they are still Platinum Sponsors. This means that if brand is paying GPWA they can do whatever they want and still will be listed as sponsors. Awesome....

    Sorry, this is a duplicate thread and when I replied with the latest updates I did it in the other thread on this topic without thinking about the duplicate.

    We're attentive to this, not letting it slide. I've had a lot of communication with Integra's Vice President of Operations about this and he's been cooperative in providing information.

    The initial story from the affiliate manager the messages were being received from was that he'd been given the contact details by another affiliate manager. Jonathan took his report at face value but the spam continued. The report that the spam was continuing came in to the forums on August 9th, and I contacted Jonathan again to let him know. He chased up the situation and found that the initial story wasn't true, and took internal actions to change how email contacts were being done to make sure there was a strict approach against using lists.

    The latest on this is just from a few days ago now, so it would be helpful to hear reports about whether the problem was addressed as intended or if there are issues continuing.

    Sorry CityGuard but I think there are enough complaints to Integra Partners to remove them ( ah they paid I forgot). The thing is that if same story will be done by any affiliate program not listed here as a sponsor we'd see 100% more comments and judgment like: dont work with spammers.....

    The line we draw before removing a sponsor is whether or not they are responsive to concerns raised. In this case the Vice President has been very willing to spend time on the phone and over email explaining their internal operations and has taken steps to correct the problems.

    The question remains whether the steps taken were successful, and we'll find that out over the coming days, but it is fair to see whether the changes had an impact rather than assuming they will not. Expecting change means treating programs that respond to concerns differently than those that don't.

    Once again sorry CityGuard but something smells bad here.
    This thread was started in may, and we have September almost... so May, June, July, August - and no action from GPWA against Integra Partners???
    Within that 4 months lot of things can be (and should be?) done.
    But I dont care at least they dont spam me.

    I guess since its a duplicate thread i will post here.

    Thank you Steven for taking this concern and communicating with the program in question.

    At least now since August 11th it would appear the email blasting has stopped.

    If i see anymore from this outfit I will let you know.

    Thanks again Steven.

    There is a very well known and common way of interaction in this market between affiliates and operators.
    You were contacted with good failth in order to be doing good business. If it has insulted you as an affiliate then I do apologize and we will not be working with you unless you wish to and sign up to our program.

    I trust you understand, wishing you all the best

    As Yuval says, The mail (s) You have received are not called spam emails But Rather's introduction.

    Rick, if I understand the correctly, your post means that the nir.b@intpar.com address is no longer functioning? That seems correct. My understanding is that Nir was an employee when the affiliate program was under the prior ownership, so it is not surprising that at least some of the old staff member email addresses would be deactivated a while after the staffing and ownership transition.

    But the info is a little cryptic to me, so if the message means something other than pointing out the email is deactivated, let me know because I don't want to miss something.

    I've added "PRIOR OWNERS" to the title of this thread and the titles of a number of other threads in order to prevent confusion.
