    Hello there!

    I used the search function and didnt find what I needed so sorry if I ask again, hope I wont seem stupid.

    Well I plan to use a site like ps3 competitions . com or something like that, that visitors will make offers to take part in competitions for ps3 obviously.

    I havent signed up to a cpa network first but I would like to know some crucial stuff.

    1) The offers that will make to participate for ps3 will they be real? I mean... Will they ever get a ps3 or it's just a lie?

    2) I am thinking to create a new topic and put the name of the "winner" each week. If it's a lie and I will put fake names, obviously, just to make them believe it's not a scam and someone asks from me some proof what should I do?

    Well nobody makes me show proof to him but if someone finds out that there are no actual winners and I am lying and promise fake competitions and make money by them... Is it illegal?

    Can someone turn against me this way?


    I know that these questions are silly but I am so noob sorry about that, I am willing to learn though and I need your guidance.

    Have a nice day!

    I know #1 because I saw it on an affiliate networks publishers blog. If they didn't give you a PS3, they'd be filed for fraud because that would be fraud. IF the visitor completed all the offers required - yes, the will get the object they are planning to get. Since its a big prize, they are required to complete probably 5 silver offers, 5 bronze offers, and 2 special offers. Which probably means the advertiser is making a lot of money, and then sending the prizes out.

    If they didn't send them out, that's fraud and CPA offers do not like fraud at all - and it's against the law.

    For #2, I'm sure you'll be fine. I think companies fake reviews all the time. They come in website templates for hosting companies. Someone opened a company with no customers and had 13 reviews. Came with the template.

    It's a bit misleading, but I don't think it will be a problem. I can be wrong! I'm only certain on number 1!

    Nobody will get the PS3, it shows in the TOS of the offer. Also, the FTC will sue you if you get enough complaints to your site, which I doubt you will. Sony will take your site down and sue you before the ftc does. Sony is the only company you need to worry about.
