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.
