I have a single topic niche site....and have been a CJ affiliate for almost 8 years.
A few days ago, this advertiser reversed my commissions.
I think the reason they did this was because I created a website 1 week ago (and they somehow found out about it) with the advertiser's brand name in the URL.
Nothing spammy, just trying to promote their coupons and discounts.
I just called CJ and am trying to get them to give me back my commissions and re-instate me into the program, based upon nothing but the goodwill that I have created (I made CJ a ton of money back in the day) over the years.
Have any of you guys gone through something like this?
I looked at the advertiser's TOS and have not seen anything about "penalties for violating the rules".
Have you guys heard of anyone suing the advertiser or CJ to get the commissions returned?
Two of my family members are prominent attorneys in LA (one who is sitting right next to me as I write this post) and he advised I go online and ask around to see if anyone can give me advice.
