I smell SCAM, my account IS SUSPENDED FOR NO FREAKEN VALID REASON! .. ITS ALL A BIG SCAM!! and yah they try to run away rather to solve peeps problems… Widgetbucks scam my $1000, that’s a two and a half months earning (June, July and August 2009). I don’t receive any email regarding the suspension of my account, they like to SCAM MORE. Lucky me, I always check my account twice or trice a month.
I’ve been with them for almost 2 years and they lost a good publisher. Here’s a reply from Craig Simmons of Widgetbucks Support Center when I tried to reinstate my account.
Your account has been suspended for suspected click fraud while we investigate the activity. An email was deployed, but might be caught up in your spam/junk filters.
Please let me know if you have any additional information that might help explain the high click through rates.

I send them my traffic stat and stated that I’m using geo targeting (I’m sending, US, CA,UK, AU traffic). After 5 hours, I received a reply from Widgetbucks.
Our traffic quality team has investigated your account and found abnormal clicking patterns that are not consistent with normal traffic patterns, especially for your sites focus. As a result of these findings, we are forced to conclude that this was fraudulent traffic which merits indefinite expulsion from our network. We will not be able to reinstate your account.

I guess they did not even study or look at my traffic stat/site. I have an increase of traffic for almost 40% on mid of June, I’m running a kids/teen site, it’s normal to get a higher ctr on this kind of site.
BEWARE of WIDGETBUCKS or MPIRE CORPORATION. ITS A BIG SCAM!! PEEPS DONT WASTE YOUR TIME IN THIS! I SHOULD LISTEN TO DIGITALPOINT PEEPS WHO ARE ALSO SUSPENDED FOR THE SAME REASON. YOU MIGHT BE EARNING TODAY, BUT HOW ABOUT THE FUTURE?
