Affiliate Program for 000webhost: A Scam?

I have been really busy lately for personal reasons but I have not forgotten that I have my online blogs that in one point in time have been a source of income for me. In fact, what keeps me busy these days is just a part of my future plan in having a more profitable online business. I want to offer products that can be used by ordinary internet users and even webmasters. That is a future plan anyway.

Back to the present, even with my busy schedule, I want to continue earning online so I am visiting some of my different affiliate programs if they are still alive. You must already know that affiliate programs are money earners in the internet. One of the programs I checked is 000webhost.

For those who are not yet aware of 000webhost, they offer free webhosting without any ads. You can develop a professional website without those annoying ads. They also offer an affiliate program that pays $5 per sign-up.

Googling '000webhost affiliate program' without even adding the word 'scam', Google results showed more than I need to know. As much as I want to promote the program, I can only say that the free webhosting is already enough. Don't expect more for the affiliate program. I have not read a single testimonial that they have been paid for the affiliate so I am not expecting payments too.

With this information and an update from Google for its affiliate program.
Note: Referrals will be retired during the last week of August 2008.

it is now time to change some of my ads settings.

I make a living promoting websites, so it deeply insults me when an affiliate program doesn't live up to its end of the agreement.

000webhost owes me for hundreds of accounts that I referred to them, and they only way to get a response from support is with threats, but even that doesn't do anything in the end.

So, I encourage anyone that has been scammed to file a formal complaint with the FBI online fraud division: http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx They are there to stop online fraud, even for just a few hundred bucks. With enough of us together, we will get the FBI's attention.

Also file a complaint at the FDC. http://www.fdc.gov

Finally, feel free to get in touch with me. derek at infogringo dot com

Let's shut down 000webhost. Affiliate marketers like us make a living driving traffic, so let's drive traffic to the FBI's complaint form. I am doing my part, please do yours. Post instructions to help convince others to file a formal complaint.
