Found this article on PC World they talk about how a company was fined $250,000 because 25 of their affiliates used fake reviews. Something in that for all of us who sell affiliate products.

Even though it was the company that got fined and not the affiliates, the rules apply to us as affiliates and there will be repurcussions for the affiliates. Also interesting to note was the amount that those 25 affiliates put through in sales... 5 million, in a non-IM niche.

Just goes to prove that you can make money in other niches.

Moderator comment:
Your reasoning is quite skewed here. Are you saying that:
  • It's okay to post fake reviews, provided that you turn over a lot of money?
  • It's okay for the company to be fined because of your flagrant dishonesty and greed?
  • It's too bad for everyone else if the company goes out of business?
