Default Paysite Owners - Possible Fraudulent Affiliate

I am not one for name and shame normally but this time I have to.

We recently got an affiliate sign up from

Aleksandr Mazurin
Name on check MTACC

Within 20 mins we got a $100 sale. I hadn't even had time to vet his site - which didn't exist. Within 24 hours we got another $100. I got suspicious and reported it to CCBill. They too thought it was highly likely fraudulent, refunded the "members" and blocked the affiliate account.

Low and behold a few days later the same person signed up as an affiliate again and, same story, within a few hours we had 2 sign ups, one for $100.

Now I don't like losing sales but I felt this was necessary. I love good affiliates but three $100 sales from sites that don't exist, and the guy did not have any access to our promo materials seemed just too good to be true.

CCBill have informed me that they cannot auto block affiliate sign ups and anyway the guy used different domains/email addresses to beat the system.

Keep an eye out. You may decide that a $100 sale is a $100 sale, and hope the "member" never notices and claim a chargeback/refund down the line. However think on this - when you give back $50, the cheat has been paid his commission, has long gone, so never feels the hit of losing his $50!

we had some similar pattern when i worked as aff.manager for AP which had that time a own aff. program
we seriously had no idea how the guy did it, it all seemed legit just that it somewhat couldnt be, cause it was same as you that the traffic litereally came from nowhere, no refferer, nothing on lots of sales, always full price,

it was clear to everybody it must be a cheat so we had to shut it down, although was a hard one, if you still facing those issues i ll hook up the old owner and ask if he ever found out more about how it turned out later with that affiliate.
