– The lies continue…

Continued from – Beware of this online advertising company

I have no faith on and Josh Lim from now on. Why? Read the email from by Advertlets Support on Sat, May 10, 2008 at 3:34 PM below. (See email in picture)

Hi Jayce,

It is unfortunate that you chose to go public with your complaint instead of checking with us first. Your cheque was processed on the 29th of April from our end, and was most likely sent out by the bank around the 3rd of May to the 5th of May.

Given that our central bank is in KL and that your address is in Kedah, and the β€œreliability” of the Malaysian postal service, it should reach you sometime between the 13th of May to the 20th of May.

While the delay is longer than most cheques should take to arrive, your Cashout history and invalid site activity are key reasons to why you’re receiving your cheque later than most, as we have to exercise more caution in determining invalid earnings.

Advertlets Support

Josh Lim accused me for click frauds last year and now accuses me for not checking with Advertlets Support and him first. And make all of this go public. Come on… Did you check your email and Advertlets Support Ticket ELI-814706 before replied this email? I created a support ticket on 10 March 2008. And my last reply on the ticket is 2 May 2008. Same go to the email. (See the ticket ELI-814706 and email in picture). I am the one that still waiting for your reply. My first public post – Advertlets – The slowest payment advertisement company in town was published on 7 May 2008 after no reply from Advertlets Support and Josh Lim himself. Have I done anything wrong? πŸ˜•

Josh Lim lied to me. He said that my first Advertlets cheque will arrive on middle of April. (See email in picture). And now he said that my first Advertlets cheque was processed on the 29th of April from their end on his latest email above. So which one is the correct one? Based on the ticket ELI-814706, Advertlets should have a post at its blog to mention about my case on 7 April 2008. Did you see any post related to this issue back then? I don’t. I just found out the post on 10 May 2008 and it is more than a month delay. So all the payment schedule on that post might be delayed too (if you still lucky to get it πŸ˜› ). Besides, Josh Lim can’t even launch Advertlets 2.0 on its birthday as promised on 14 Feb 2008 blog post. And I doubt the Advertlets Titan program is running too.

Thanks for innit by Nuffnang, which made my post be known by everyone. (See innit in picture.). Some of the loyal Advertlets bloggers start to make noise too. Said that don’t want to put Advertlets ad anymore. (See comments in picture). So what is your call? Keep serving Advertlets ad? πŸ˜•

In the end, hopefully, the lies will not continue… πŸ˜€

Continued on – Sun after the rains…

  • I was switching between Advertlets and Nuffnang back and forth recently to test out both.. Due to Nuffnang seems to give out ad slow.. I used to host Nuffnang for few months.. but got limited ad campaigns.. and sometimes no ad come out even.. Advertlets do have more ad sizes, so decided to give them a try.. but wahhh.. it really make my site somewhat slower.. despites Josh’s claims in certain websites that they have upgraded the speed.. haha.. and after reading through those bad comments about them.. I don’t really want to host ads for them for free (delay in payments and denying ppl payment by simply saying they have click frauds is definitely a unethical business ehtic).. Now back to Nuffnang.. πŸ˜›

  • I was once a user of Advertlets until i discover innit and the power of exclusive Glitterati member. Now after reading your post i began to understand why Nuffnang choose to distinguish itself with its asian advertising counterparts. I sympathies with you.. Nuffnang all the way!

  • Advertlets is such a crap in the way of doing business. Accusing click frauds really unethical, humiliating and disrecpect to the people who hosting their ads. Even it is happening, they should just investigate behind and pay the money which they think is without click fraud. You cant just go tell the person, hey you XXX, you are cheating ! This kind of service really sux to max !

  • I have no comment on Advertlets because I am not eligible for cashout.

  • Started with Nuffnang, so no comment at all for Adverlets.

  • Btw, shouldn’t any click fraud have been check even before any cash out? Why wait till cash out only check for click fraud? Check for click fraud first then if detected, deduct the amount from the amount collected so far, then when cashing out, the remain cash is supposedly legitimate to be cash out, so processing should be fast.

    From my point of view, it sounds like anyone cashing out from Adverlets will be delayed by this click fraud thingy. There can be a few reasons, cash flow is not enough to be paid out to bloggers so create excuse for delay, purposely hold back paid out for non celeb blogger until they discontinue from Adverlets then no need to do paid out, and lastly spending & budgeting was not planned out properly the money was used somewhere else so have to delay paid out.

  • say no to Adverlets..its frustrating! they are not profesional at all.

  • My first Advertlets cheque came to me in early March. I requested on 29th December 07. Date of the cheque was 29th Feb. Fortunately it came…… phew, we’re talking nearly RM 500 there. πŸ™‚

    After that, I had another cash-out request on 13th Feb 08 – till now it’s still processing. πŸ™ Early days, I could get like RM 10 – 20 per day under the exclusivity plan. After that it went to around RM 3 – 5. after that it’s like 30 sen per day.

    I’ll probably write a review on them soon.

  • i stopped using advertlets since the click fraud case. such rubbish.

  • Hm.. shud i continue? Or shud I stop advertising? Coz I received like 1 click for severals days (other days zeros..) But then CPC still shows RM0.000 ><

  • sigh.I really hates advertlets.They promise me to send my earning.But there’s still no sign of my earning arrive at my home.Then they accuse me for fraud click.Before that they said there’s some auditing problem.Reading your article makes me want to change to nuffnang.

    Anyway, thx for the info about advertlets.Gotta tell my friend about this.

  • Try to contact Josh Lim to discuss your issue. πŸ™‚

  • Hmmm so i am not the only one with alleged “Click Frauds” and “Delayed Payments”.

    I’ve been asking Josh & the Advertlets Support for so long via email, and there were so many emails back and forth. My payment have been held back since November 2007. Sigh!!!

    So in the end did u get your payment from Advertlets?

  • Ask Josh Lim directly. Yes. I did get the cheque in the end. Even got the previous denied cash out. πŸ˜€

  • using advertlets is playing with fire. though u may THINK u earn more but like everyone else, its just gonna click fraud bla bla yada yada. No point in arguing because they ACCUSE and we cant do anything bout it.

  • Can… Find your proof of not click fraud at their own website You can get all the details from there. πŸ˜€

  • Dear Jayce

    Have asked Josh so many times, tired already! Very slow!!

    I am glad u got your check in the end.

    Unfortunately mine never came. And the total amount is four digits, mebbe that’s why Advertlets is holding out on it.

  • It was a tired process indeed. I had gone through that. πŸ˜›
    Did you manage to login to to see your traffic and CTR details? It might help you some. πŸ˜€

  • schtick

    from my experience with nuffnang:
    i’m a nuffnang glitterati member. since i joined nuffnang a few months after they began business, i’ve cashed out about rm2000. i’m not a big blogger mah. but they have always paid on time. it used to be 2 months between cashing out and receiving cheque. but now with the glitterati membership, i cash out end of the month, wait for one month then i receive the cheque.

  • Wow… You cash out a lot lo. Wish that I can be like you too someday. Earn so much. πŸ˜€

  • Zbo

    wah.. I didn’t know about this. Looks like I should stop using advertlets

  • Hmm… It is up to you then. πŸ˜›
