A very popular mozilla plugin "screengrab" has been found to pop up a window everytime a user goes to GoDaddy and other hosting sites. It then substitutes in a referral link, so the owner can get credit for any accounts you open.
I'm not sure who to report this too - but would greatly appreciate it if GoDaddy would stop payouts to this person.
Hi @techguy. Thanks for taking the time to share this. From what I can see, they're using a Commission Junction affiliate code. I'd recommend reaching out to them about this. That is where any revenue would be coming from. Hope that helps.
Good point - I will contact them. However I just looked it up and it appears that all GoDaddy affiliates go through CJ:
I'll report it to them, but GoDaddy should be aware as well, since they are the ones who pay it out. ( At least I think that is how it works ) . Any idea where I would even report that to godaddy? I'm not going to sit on hold for an hour just to report it...
