Adspacebox is said to be an online advertising firm for brands looking to gain exposure. They source for traffic from various SSP(Supply-Side-Platforms) or ad networks to place those ads for their clients. My company, was one of them sourced for a campaign. As in our policy we did a background check on them and asked for referrals before we started their campaign. After doing such and after being given good reviews from the sources we asked that they give us their campaign requirements and then started their campaign.

Here's where it gets thick: From the first few days there were complaints over certain domains they didn't want their ads to show on such as Amazon, and they didn't want ads on Opera proxies(Which wasn't part of their initial requirements) and i complied and then wanted to know if they had other requirements before scaling up the campaign.(Note: the more specific the campaign, the greater the cost especially on our side as we're paying website owners to put the ads). This went on for about a while with new requirements being brought up and we complying accordingly. However on a certain day, the campaign manager Emma Beckers sent a mail that the client was dissatisfied with the campaign despite we doing all he asked for and wanted to cancel it.

I was disappointed and wanted to know why that was so. Also i wanted to get paid for the work done so far as common business ethics require. However since then they haven't answered any of my messages or emails and such is a trend with companies who are alleged scamming advertising platforms.

We'd like them to pay us for the traffic and work done on their campaign so that we leave it all in the past.

Thank you.

I've had similar shady experince with Emma at adspacebox. We didn't even get far enough to serve any banners as the tags they sent weren't approved by the SSPs. The kept being rejected for being 'malicious' and 'compromised landing pages'.

My colleagues were sent similar shady creative banners all from companies with little online presence and with the main contact usually having no information about them on any social media (nothing on linkedin or facebook).

The campaigns were also very basic for very random products. Enticingly easy.

The agency names were Adspacebox (Emma Beckers), Qaidu (Christina Eriksson) and Webome (Matteo Henriksson).

I suspect they are all actually the same people behind different shoddy websites trying to scam free impressions. Watch out.

Ridiculous accusations from a company that sells bot traffic and makes a fool out of its clients (referring Dochase.com). FYI in order to get paid - deliver real traffic and do not waste time by overpromising. If you want to do real business online - deal with real traffic, stop drawing hosting and writing stupid complaints.

I've had problems with the exact same companies and contacts. Spammy campaigns, weird targeting, malicious flagging and non payment. Anytime we turn them down they spam the entire company trying to find another test.

The agency names were Adspacebox (Emma Beckers), Qaidu (Christina Eriksson) and Webome (Matteo Henriksson).

Mia Heath from Seoes too. It seems to be a large network of scammers/fraudsters.

Glad to see this before we started serving ads for Yellow Media / Yedia. If this is all one operation then here are the companies given as references (to be fair I did NOT do any business or have negative experiences with any of these, but their nearly-identical websites and non-existent LinkedIn presence was fishy enough)
Company Name: Getrackit Contact Name: Stefan Schweitzer
Company Name: Trawebclick Consulting LTD Contact Name: Angus Iverson
Company Name: 11connect Contact Name: Abbas Stumpf
