Name and shame list

Noreen Muyco from HYCM: we were unfortunate to work with Noreen, an account manager for the HYCM affiliates programme, over several years. Noreen never allowed us to withdraw our affiliate commissions in full. She would always claim that the amounts earned were less than what was shown in the affiliate programme. We suspect she was skimming the difference to her own personal account. Unfortunately, affiliate managers tend to have the last word, and there was no recourse to us.
