It’s no secret that the affiliate marketing industry has long been fraught with scammers and frauds—it’s been that way for quite some time. However, as the industry has grown and evolved, there have been some great new technologies and regulations put in place to help cut back on the amount of illegal activity that takes place. But despite the efforts of many to expose scammers and stop them from profiting illegally, it seems as though for every one that gets shut down, another one pops up to take its place.

Recently, we were tipped off to the next one in a long line of alleged scammers, this time being AppFloor.com. According to the video below, AppFloor poses as an affiliate network with offices in both the UK and Lithuania, but does not have a physical address in either country.

Apparently this “supposed network” claims to have agreements with ad networks and offers CPI offers brokered to ad networks and claims to have everything set in stone and lets affiliates bid on CPI offers. However, when users send money to the ad network for adspend, the money ends up in a Lithuanian bank account.

Although the backend of AppFloor looks eerily similar to HasOffers, the only thing you’ll find about the network is the same post over and over again by the same one person who claims to be an affiliate with the network.

Clearly, there’s something a little off about AppFloor, but we’re hesitant to call it a fraud until we’ve heard from a few more sources or seen some more evidence. So, if you’ve worked with AppFloor or have any information regarding this network, we’d love to hear from you in the comments section below.

  1. Hi,

    Just to inform you that I am an affiliate with appfloor (started in June 2014). I have made withdrawal only once from my account with them and there was delay in payment processing even though I eventually receive the money from them (after 20days as suppose to 7days). My affiliate manager gave reason for the delay as being due to delay in receiving payment from the advertiser. I intend making another withdrawal by the end of this month and will give full details of my experience. Meanwhile, kindly note that I am based in Nigeria and will do all I can to expose any scam where possible from Nigeria.

    Regards

  2. Hello,

    I can confirm authoritatively that appfloor is scam mobile affiliate network. In my earlier comment in August 2014, I did mentioned that I am going to request for additional withdrawal from my account. I made a request of $1,850 plus leaving a balance of $2,600 on my account. They eventually paid me $1,900 after 10days (against their supposed 7days). I once again requested for the balance on my account since the two campaigns I iniatially activated remained inactive after several days of my setting it up. Several mails and Skype messages to my supposed affiliate manager (Olivia) has been ignored. Also, the guy that introduced me to appfloor (I suspect he is the one behind it or works in conjunction with the scammer) has stopped picking my calls. In conclusion, appfloor is a scam mobile affiliate network that be made known to all.

    Regards
