Yes it's against the terms of service of most affiliate programs and yes it's illegal - because it works and can't easily be stopped, unless you find out who the affiliates are.
That is interesting. Why is it so difficult to stop?

Most merchants think the "typo domain affiliates" are doing them a favor when in fact they are skimming high converting traffic for commissions.

It's hard to stop because the merchants are unaware... and until recently there haven't been easy tools to detect this stuff.

Now there are some tools out there e.g. Typo Assassin.

The advice given here is really good and we should take care about affiliate marketing, but affiliate should also think about each other. If affiliates will do like this, in coming days it will be very difficult to get some affiliate.

We need to maintain our dignity and should provide what we have promised.
