PAN – Publisher Ad Network is a Fraud

by on March 17th, 2011

There are several ways to make money online. One is by displaying ads at your website. But there are every kind of people out there. Fair and unfair. I wanna share a strange experience of mine with all of you making money online. Publisheradnetwork claiming to be the ‘Global Ad Network’ is supposed to be an advertising company providing advertisement solution for publishers and advertisers but that is a fake, fake, fake company. This advertising network does not exist. They have a website where they claim that they have payouts average over 50% higher than Google AdSense. Somebody from this company with official email will approach you (in my case [email protected]) and would say to try this network. After more than 30 emails they decided something and agreed to give ads to one of my websites. I then asked about the advertising formats and they showed me two websites (askmadden.com and codmaps.org) which were displaying advertisements from this network but now they are not.

I was told by them that:

We will create a login for you as far as stats we are working on getting those up and running but I can provide that for you once the account is up and running. you will get paid every 30 days in to your PayPal account for the amount of clicks received. The sign on bonus I will pay up front to your PayPal. We will offer a $150 dollars sign on bonus paid up front. You can go to askmadden.com or codmaps.org too see some live ads.

The ad code was like this:

<!-- // BEGIN PAN AD WIDGET EMBED CODE FOR site -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var pan_widget_width=160;
var pan_widget_height=600;
var pan_widget_adp=1998;
var pan_border_color="000000";
var pan_background_color="ffffff";
var pan_title_color="0000f9";
var pan_headline_color="0000f9";
var pan_text_color="000000";
var pan_link_color="544454";
var pan_hover_color="ff7b00";
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://widget.publisheradnetwork.com/pub/adsgen.js"></script>
<!-- // END OF PAN AD WIDGET EMBED CODE -->

I tried the network and had a strange experience. They display ads from gaming cheat sites which ask for your phone number and if you provide them your phone number they will possibly charge you to send cheat codes of several games.

The advertisements were text ads, similar to Google AdSense but they were disappeared after two days from my website. I did not get the sign on bonus, nor account info, neither further email from the guy.

I tried to search info about them before using them but could not find proper review so I thought to share my experience with other publishers out there to be ware of these kind of guys. Their website is not professional. They communicate with emails. They will send code in emails. They will do false promises and ask to fill out two forms and more but this company is a fake and they won’t reply you after when you place ads at your website.

Don’t get caught by these thieves. I was amazed that people like these are also online making fool of other publishers. Anyways guys! Be ware.
