Just a note for those who are checking in for updates, I am continuing to dig into the Chiu Brothers’ wire fraud charge and civil suits.
I’ve gotten some interesting information from a couple of sources, but I still would like to speak with (off the record and/or anonymously if you’d prefer):
- Someone at Linkshare or someone who worked there during mid-2008 through the end of 2011
- Someone at competing networks or at OPMs
- Someone who worked at FW during mid-2008 through the end of 2011 (I’m sure current employees are forbidden to talk to people about this)
- The Chiu brothers themselves, or their friends/family
You can stay anonymous, and we can talk by phone if you’d prefer to not give your answers in writing.
I’d also like to talk to management at other cashback sites about how they would defend the notion that fraud is inherent in the cashback industry, and about the measures they have in place to detect and prevent it.
Please email me here, and if you’d prefer to talk by phone, give me your number and a good time to call. I’m finding some interesting things that I’ll be sharing here soon.
