I used Smartname.com to monetize traffic of my domains.Last month I couldnt get payment they said you dont have tax form, then I sent tax form , they wrote dashboard the payment list.firstly Smartname said revenue will be paid on nexth 15th, Today my account was closed.They make fake promise.For 60 days my account was active , they exploit my traffic ,account earned total $4000 , because smartname.com scammers dont want to pay they closed my account.I didnt get any payment.Smartname ban people on last days of the month, full month account saves money, then no payment release.Altough Smartname paid from bing.com ,they dont pay to smartname publishers.Altough bing.com charge from advertisers, bing.com doesnt give this revenue to me.
Smartname.com and bing.com commit fraud both publisher and advertisers.They both cheat everybody.
I dont want anybody to work with these fraudster companies.If you work with your investment money will be lost.
Another victim previously opened thread:
Smartname.com , Parked.com offer a service for domain parking publishers, Clients who joined these companies are parking their domains with this services.These services offer account to client , many domains are publishing bing ads , for example computer.com , in computer.com if you click a keyword it shows ads which are on bing advertisement system.Parked.com get a share when an end user clicks an ad provided by adcenter.
DONT DELETE THIS THREAD,I WANT TO PEOPLE LEARN THIS SCAM.
As has been explained earlier in this thread, your complaint needs to be submitted to NameMedia as that is the company you entered into an agreement with. To reiterate from my previous post on this matter:
This customer entered into an agreement with Smartname.com, which is run by Name Media, a publisher within the Bing network. As we have no control over that agreement or the customer's relationship with Smartname.com, the customer should review the agreement to determine next steps to get this dispute settled with them.
I understand that you're angry and frustrated, but this issue is not something that Microsoft can address for you. Please get in touch with Smarname.com/Name Media.

I'm just wondering what makes you so sure that Smartname.com is actually being paid for the low-quality clicks... I've had several cases where the automated click quality system has 'de-bunked' many of my campaign's clicks.This would mean the advertiser's charges would be revised and no-one would make any money.
Were you on the publisher or the advertiser's end of this unfortunate situation? I'm looking forward to your reply, I'd love to learn more about this situation.
Hello Domainer,Could you email me your account information to ‘ adcforumresponse[at]microsoft[dot]com’ so I can investigate your issue?
o Who requested message: Paul K. – MSFTo adCenter username:o Affected account(s), if not all:o Affected campaign(s), if not all:o In Detail Summarize the issue:
I have emailed you my Smartname user id and email.
I am looking forward your reply.
Smartname is on the Bing Search Sponsored Partners , Bing and Smartname has contract ,in contract it says when bing determine click is valid Smartname is get paid. Daily publisher revenue and clicks finalizes , that means When Smartname writes to dashboard yesterday's clicks and revenue ,it means Smartname will be get paid.Bing/Yahoo determine valid clicks daily.How Smartname scam people ? Smartname writes publisher revenue every day stats , but the scammer company bans at the end of month when full month 30 days revenue saves.They claim clicks are low quality after they charged advertisers.
If any Bing based parking provider writes dahboard money that means they will be got money.Clicks Finalization is daily.And I know the contract of them. Smartname customers use Smartname's pubcenter account , Smartname customers clicks are written on Smartname's pubcenter account which is provided by bing.Smartname is middleman.
I sent email to Microsoft but I couldnt get payment and Microsoft didnt help me.

You requested from me the smartname.com's contact number and email ,I gave it to
you with surprisingly that you partner with Smartname and you dont have their
contact altough you pay to Smartname every month.Does Microsoft contact me for
showing people that you didnt commit fraud ? but I didnt get my payment.I
surprised and dissapointed that Microsoft commit fraud partner with fraudster
company Smartname.com.In order People Not loose trust Microsoft , I request your
solution regarding this scam.
I sent this along to our Traffic Quality team for review, this was their response:
The only other information I have on this is to point out that if the clicks coming through your domain(s) are low quality, then Smartname.com wouldn't pay you for them as they wouldn't receive anything for them either. Again, this is something you would need to address with Smartname.com... please consult the agreement you entered into with them as they should have provided you with a means to have any disputes settled.
I hope this was helpful.
Smartname is a publisher within bing network , Smartname gives a lot of accounts ,some accounts have low quality traffic and some have high but Smartname has single account on bing network , a lot of accounts total clicks ,total revenue writes on Smartname's bing publisher account therefore Microsoft dont know any account on Smartname make click fraud or something else , Microsoft only pay the Name media total revenue regardless of per smartname account.In my account all clicks are valid and Smartname took the payment from Microsoft.Smartname aim is stealing money of the customer when they ban account.
Smartname doesnt pay to its customers claiming low quality clicks but Microsoft determine clicks are valid , Smartname take payment but their customers couldnt.
If Microsoft allow Smartname to publish ads via third party customers , why dont Microsoft control , examine , inspect the companies? Its sad but Microsoft allow fraud. Why does Microsoft allow scammer companies? We got scammed.
Why do you close your network to new publishers? so that we can directly signup your web publisher program , and we avoid dealing with middleman.
Thank you for your feedback, I have passed it along to our traffic quality analysis team for review. I'll let you know if they need any further information.
As for your closing question, pubCenter is currently in the pilot phase. As soon as we have information on when it will be open to new publishers, we will let everyone know via the blog.
Use park or bodies. The rest sucks. Parked.com never ban account unreasonably. They show you that your TQ is dropping then you move accounts somewhere else first.
Months passed , I never get any money and Smartname continue to scam other people.
Thousands from me, Millions of dollars from people have been hit.
We came to see, it is true that Microsoft and Smartname both fraudulent profiting from the advertiser and the publisher.
You pay to Smartname every month.Why dont you request terminated accounts list from Smartname ? so that advertisers wont be cheated.When Smartname bans account for low quality traffic or another reason ,they refuse to pay.If Smartname doesnt pay to its customer so Microsoft needs chargeback from smartname.This is very important for advertisers if smartname doesnt like the traffic and tought the publisher makes click fraud , you must take back the fraud money from Smartname and you need to give this money to advertiser.
Smartname.com is scammer , They banned my account and they refused to pay me. What is Microsoft's email , I will send you my smartname username so that please chargeback the payment which smartname/namemedia stole , They refuse to pay me , you need to take back from Smartname. No one has right to steal my 30 days saved revenue , I dont want adverdisers got cheated.
You really should try parked.com or bodis.com
Many smaller network are assholes.
