refs from ebay
Are people getting their accounts put on hold for using ebay to get refs? I think one of my ref is doing this... x
Well It's against ebays rules I think
Yes I believe it clearly states that on ebay. I know there were some who did it before but ebay has changed it - you can't blog on there now.
I wish I knew where to do it at??????
But I thought I heard that, TRAINN for example, was placing people on hold for it.
Maybe they are - I know Trainn states in the rules that if you spam your links any where that is not permitted - they will review your account.
I read that just the other day. If they hear of you spamming your link - they will review and probably revoke credit or put on hold.
I do not know if they would review you Twon - because you are not the one spamming your link. How can we control what are referrals do?
That would be very unfair in my opinion. But I know LLee had a problem with a different network because some of his referrals were caught using stolen credit cards. So who knows????
I was told not long ago by a site owner that if a person's referrals turn out to be scammers they pay closer attention to the sponsors account.
Spammers get put on hold if someone reports them. I report lots of people...cuz it's fun. But only if they are actually spamming. I think TRAINN loves me.
What incentives do you get for getting an eBay referral?
Most people that spam their links in an eBay auction are hoping to get free refs, basically. So, they profit 100%.

I think it would be a lot of fun to find these people on ebay threaten to report them unless they pay me some blackm . . ., hush money, uh a consulting fee! yeah that's it.
Virtually all freebie site terms have a "no-spam" policy. The question is what they consider "spam." Most though are pretty clear that posting your link in places where it is not allowed or welcome constitutes spam, and since eBay has reportedly forbidden it, then I'd expect sites to DQ for it. However I doubt they trawl eBay for them, so most likely folks like Jenny are narc'ing people out. P
I did it while I was at ZPT - I just looked at the traffic analysis of where people were coming from. 4 or so people got banned for eBaying their links...
First time I signed up for a freebie site was through ebay while I was looking to buy a mac mini. Of course I deleted the guy's reflink before I signed up though.
And trying to get refs for that mac mini site lead me here...

reflinks in your sig are a no no

Uh. Depends, if the blog site does not allow it then you can't. If the freebie website doesn't allow it, you can't. Well, technically you can but you aren't allowed.

Same. Was looking for a cheap wii (what, was I stupid?) and ran along a trainn link at 1AM. Read up on it and went through with it. Looking for answers to my questions led me here...and now here I am P
