Angry Does Safe Audit still exist ?

Apart from the fact that they still owe me (and a lot of others) money earned last year, they does seem to no longer exist.

I have not been able to reach their site recently at www.safe-audit.com

Did they go bankrupt or what ?

I remember them back in 1998-2000, they were paying their affiliates, always and on time.

What's your experience ?

Default "Do I know Jesus? He owe me twelve bucks!"

I have started using SafeAudit on September 2001 and my experience with them is quite negative. They paid me for a first month when I made only $150 - just for test if they pay or not. When I make $900 in a next month - they reversed all leads. I removed all of their banners immediately but still make $550 or so in a following month. Of course, all leads was reversed again. Not to mention that I must serve their banners from my server and it was a time when I pay for extra-traffic because of them.

And I am not lonely with my experience - you can read this thread, for example:

A very similar experience as EvDeon- once my monthly revenue increased, SA either reversed the leads or simply didn't pay. Needless to say my recommendation is to stay far away from them regardless of their state.

I used them back in the days when they offered good CPC and CPM campaigns (about 2 years ago). They reversed my clicks and impressions at the end of the month saying my site did not fit the profile of the campaigns.

All I can say that during the 2-3 years I have been with them, I have never had a single problem : always paid on time, never got leads reversed.

Then I stopped using them because of lack of offers.

I started to use them again end of last year and since then I never received payment and now their site is no longer accessible.

I do not know what is going on.

If you have any information, let's share it with everybody.

The site's down for me today, but I did access the domain within the last 72 hours to check them out once again. The service still seems active, and has recently pulled a few campaigns (Casino-on-Net) and brought in a newbie or two (Gambling.com wasn't there a month or two back). In addition, the founder remains vocal within a few email discussion groups, but as per the comments above, even when the service was 100% alive and kicking, membership was often more trouble than it was worth.

Til October 2001 they paid late but they did pay.

Now, I am also still waiting for safe-audit.com's payments from October 2001 til now.
They own me more than 700 US$.

Iweb,

You and I (and a lot of others) are exactly in the same situation.

Strange isn't it ?
