I was a member of an affiliate program you have listed here
I have lost many thousands of dollars from this company over the 18 months I was involved with this company (I am no longer an active member)
My websites were generating several thousand click throughs a day (on a quiet day) and I was making several thousand dollars USD a month (or so I thought)
At first I did not check the amounts against the cheques recieved until 1 day I was showing someone how the affiliate program worked and I noticed the amount of approx $4,000 was available for the month of September 2001
When I received my cheque for THAT month, i received only approx $1,200 (that is a big disparity)
Please note that AsiaRooms.com paid every 3 months, so my financial loss was enormous
So I send an email and asked what had happened
They told me that they would look into it
3 more emails and several months later, I received a payment for $700 (yes only 700) dollars and I was told that there was an accounting error "Somewhere"
To cut the story short, I continued monitoring the stats against the cheques received and noticed that I was ALWAYS out of pocket several hundred dollars to over $5,000 for the months October through December 2001
at that stage (Mar/Apr 2002) I dropped the program completely
I spoke to a french guy and a french girl (forgot their names) who worked for the company based in Thailand.
They assured me that the ONLY person who could TOUCH my money was the owner of the company
When I asked to speak with the owner, they said that he did NOT accept "calls"
Perhaps I should have gone to Thailand and seen him in person.
