Is SEOClerks taking Measures to Detect Cheaters in the Affiliate Contest??

Is SEOClerks taking precautions against Cheaters?? If so, what kinds?
Couldn't people essentially create multiple SEOClerks accounts, or agree to become each other's Affiliates then Split the Winnings? Then continuously circulate funds through their accounts only to have 10% taken out?

Account #A.)Contestant in the Contest.

Account #B.)A Seller's Account with services Listed

Account #C.)The Affiliate

Account #A refers Account #C to SEOClerks and #C becomes #A's Affiliate. Then #C buys a bunch of #B's services (which is also one in the same).
SEOClerks would take 20% Commission from each Sale between #C & #B, but would then PAY #A 10% since #C is their Affiliate.

Once the Funds Clear for each Sale (which would be fairly quick since they would quickly leave positive Feedback for themselves), they can simply Recycle the Funds back into the Contest and repeat the same process (minus 10%)

If someone were to do this with just $100 for example.
They'd get $90 back once the Funds cleared and would get Credited for $100 in Affiliate Sales.

Then they could repeat this Process and be Credited $1,000 in Affiliate Sales with just $100 bucks!!

I've only got $200 in Affiliate Sales from 36 Affiliates and I'm in 3rd Place. But I have put a LOT of time, money, & effort into earning my spot.

So what measures are in place to prevent Cheating?

We have various methods to detect duplicate accounts and I'm not talking about just lame IP matching. To answer your question, yes we are taking measures. However, I can't tell you those methods without enabling cheaters.

Yeah, i look at some of the other members in it and think how are they doing it. I have 67 affiliates since the contes started, with around $85 - $90 in affiliate sales. I have been using facebook advertising and other advertising methods on websites, etc.. It seems as if im trying so hard to get referrels & cant get back into the prize places Is SEOClerks taking Measures to Detect Cheaters in the Affiliate Contest?? I know its not the amount of affiliates, its the amount in $ of the affiliate sales, just seems a bit mad that my 67 affiliates have only converted to $90 in sales, yet some others have only got from 1 - 5 affiliates yet are doing much better Is SEOClerks taking Measures to Detect Cheaters in the Affiliate Contest?? Im not accusing anyone of cheating, just thought i ould give my thoughts when i seen this question Is SEOClerks taking Measures to Detect Cheaters in the Affiliate Contest??

Thanks for your answer Jordan. I guess its not so much duplicate accounts that I'm wondering about as much as I'm wondering about people teaming up as an Alliance so to speak, each working together to boost each other's Affiliate Sales, then agreeing to split the Rewards.

No need to expose what kind of Measures you guys are taking, I totally understand, but hopefully you guys have ways to determine who's playing fair and who isn't.

Thanks!!
