    sucks but then again, there were many single affiliates making that much a month...if not a DAY. A "company" doing many of them with a large budget, well, thats pocket change for as much as they were probably making.

    Not saying I'd welcome a 300k judgement/settlement but if I was doing it and really pushing traffic then that would be a pretty light fine compared to the profits that were going out there...and still seem to be since those flogs are still everywhere lol.

    Holy shit, 300K?!

    Take a look at the Google reviews for your local car dealers. If each fake review is fraud, car dealers are guilty of billions of dollars of fraud.

    I remember hearing that the owner got in big trouble for their hardcore scamming...like not letting people cancel without proof from a doctor it didn't work lol. Making people paranoid to go get notes from their doctors saying their dicks are still small lol.

    Those commercials are still on like crazy though so they much be making some big numbers still.

    Same with that cash4gold scam lol.

    God I wish I was a bit more shady and had the balls to fuck over so many people.
