You could try and get them to give you credit and hope to get some return to cut your losses... either way move on...

Thanks for responses.
Well the first few days, I thought the traffic was very educated (maybe net savvy) and was not clicking any affilaite links or moving to other pages of the website because of poor targetting. But now, after more than 1500 clicks, I am not so sure. These visits do show up in the logs but seem to have their source in websites which simply have nothing on them.. Just one search bar..some categories ( which are all blank) and show no result when a query is typed into the search bar. More than 1500 visitors and not a single click on any link on the page? I have written to MIVA for their comments.
Even if they refund some money, what the heck am I going to do with such traffic?
This is the first time ever I am going to have to go for a chargeback and I am not happy or comfortable but this seems to me to be blatant fraud. :-(

Do a site search for Miva or FindWhat and you will find lots of support for your thinking.

It's true, their traffic has become well suspect over the years. Especially when you read finanial reports that indicate in my opinion that senior members of Miva paying huge sums to their 'other' business (non-exec or other) interests for sending them traffic to Miva; so they get an extra kickback too!
Excellent work if you can get it; top notch ROI.

My experience with Miva was not dis-similar. I never got a real straight answer from them as to why the traffic they sent never even clicked on an adsense ad!
Move on is my advice.

"Move on is my advice. "
I have asked them for a refund and asked them to close my account.
If they delay.. There is going to be chargeback. I can't take such blatant fraud without a fight.

Well... I must say.. I did not expect them to refund my money..
But they did it.
So.. all I can say .. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.. VERY POOR PRODUCT.
(must give credit where due..)
I will never use third tier PPC.... I will never use third Tier PPC ....and I write this 100 times.
