    Hi, Today one of my facebook account get tagged by a image, which says "Get a free ipad 3, i got one shipped yesterday, visit b******.com". When i seen that, i just want to know which cpa offer he was using? i went to that site b*******.com, and got surprised. Because, it's look like a actual facebook page. The header and footer are just screen captures of facebook, Some real look profile faces are also there. I won't click the offer link, because it may be a malware. Isn't illegal? or can we use the same method? what's your thought?

    Sure you can do the same thing but it's obviously illegal.

    @ferma231,
    he better lose all money because it is fraud, you could understand if you were the advertiser.

    Anyways, I removed it.

    Nothing worse than someone spoiling someone else's method, I'd remove the url at least!

    There's nothing fraudulent about it, as long as the info entered into the offers is good the advertisers will be happy and the AM will be begging for more traffic.

    It can be a fellow blackhatter so you better remove any ties to that page... Please don't spoil things for others, it might be someone broke and he needs money to feed his family.

    But when I click on his link, I get a blank page. I think it has to do with geo-targeting.

    I remember writing 100 articles of 200 words on the keyword, "Get Free iPads". Initially, I found it hilarious, but later I came to know that he was in fact making good money out of it. I don't think it's illegal.

    Edit: The three keywords assigned to me were as follows:
    1) How to get a free iPad?
    2) Free iPads
    3) Get Free iPads

    I removed the url, i haven't think about it "May be he could be a fellow blackhatter". Any how, we can use this method to bank a quick money.

    Okay it's not exactly illegal but it can be considered fraud due to the site impersonating Facebook for financial gain. The owner can get fucked big time.

    This is the typical old assumption someone (that doesn't know laws) thinks it's right because he heard someone say that sometime somewhere... :) Truth is fraud and blackhat are VERY OFTEN intertwined and / or overlapping and the confines sooo hard to define. The only reason why a lot of the techniques on here don't get you busted or sued is a. the volume of ppl doing such that makes impractical to go after each and every lil scumbag violating ToS and promoting offers the way they are NOT allowed by an advertiser and b. a still unclear legislation applying across national borders, for sake of pure information... And the assumption that blackhat != fraud is most of the time just an arbitrary word of mouth idea (falsely) based on "popular belief": that's why real businesses (like corporations that have to report to shareholders not lil average joe in his basement..) are so strict to approve your shitty ads on PPC or so careful about the use of terms like free, for instance... Let's get the facts straight before the next teenager starts whining about a C&D or lawsuit on here... ;)

    You can always do it but better remain under radar. :)
