Ok…The title is a little salacious but I hate spam. March 24, 2008 I applied to this affiliate network. I don’t even remember why. Following my application, I was never contacted by the network, never approved and actually forgot about the network, until today when I received this email:
Effective Immediately: Payment Process Change
Our network, along with other networks, has been experiencing a
significantly high amount of fraud.
Most of the fraud comes to us because people are signing up with account
names and addresses that
are not theirs. Fraud and providing false information is intolerable. If
you are doing nothing wrong,
and you have nothing to hide, then applications would have been submitted
with correct data.
As an added security measure for our identification verification process
we will be sending this
month’s payment via US mail. This will verify to us that your mailing
address is yours and you were
able to cash the check under the name on the account.
* If you do not want to follow this process, please email us, and we will
close your account for you.
* If the check is returned to us as undeliverable, we will close your
* If the check is not cashed within 90 days, we will close your account.
If you live overseas, please verify that your threshold is set high enough
so you can cash the check in
your country. Some countries will not cash small checks.
Also note that all future new applicants will need to have their first
checks mailed to them as well.

As stated earlier Ive never dealt with this affiliate network. I’ve also never signed up to be mailed by them. I’m glad that I haven’t, because the attitude they take in this message is ridiculous. Just read that email. Don’t they come off as the HUGEST douchepickles?
