    I just thought of a way to fill your own offers and this way you could easily generate $100,000 or even more a year. You would need to join lots of networks though but there would be a slim to none chance of getting caught. Now the question is, should I proceed with this or not? I am leaning towards not doing it since I feel this is completely wrong and unethical. What are your thoughts and opinions? Thanks

    How does anyone else's opinion matter if you feel that this is completely wrong and unethical?

    This is definitely not sustainable and this is fraud. You can never depend on doing something illegal to generate a solid income. Not to mention it will be a real hassle to maintain such work as you?ll be like a mice running around trying not to get caught. I wouldn?t even use this as a side-method to generate extra venture funding. You have to worry about not getting caught, the legality and consequences.

    LOL... Only you can define your code of ethics. If you disprove from the start, there's no need in asking anyone else. Good luck with everything else you're doing though.

    Even if you have exact geotargeted proxies, fill in "real" information from whitepages or something, cloak all your aff links, mask your ctr and conversion %, the fact still remains that your leads will never convert for the advertiser.

    You can span it across 20 different networks and possibly get away with something serious, but at the risk of a ton of time spent on a method with no tangible longevity. Feelings frequently deviate from what is ethical and at the end of the day the decision is ultimately yours, but the fact that you are asking whether to do it is alone enough to suggest that it is probably not in your best interests.

    I'm sorry I am not going to give it out nor sell it since majority of the people on here would do it immediately and this way I would create even more damage than doing it on my own. It would cost affiliate networks/advertising co's hundreds of thousand of dollars.

    Karma is a bitch:cool:

    Seems like a bad idea. The advertiser is going to figure it out sooner or later.

    This is like clicking on your own Adsense ad... you are not profitable for the advertiser, why they cannot caught you like google do?

    PUH-LEEZE...whatever tactic you're thinking of has been discussed or done already. Maybe filling out cpa offers using proxies and fake traffic? Been there, done that.

    Go ahead and do it for a month or two, taste the waters, see what it really feels like then make your decision. You may learn something new when actually try it out, maybe a new twist that would make you feel comfortable about the method.

    Never leave ideas on the table, many men have missed out on greatness because of that.
