    I have a friend "swim" who is in a affiliate marketing program. Swim claim's that he can set up 50 user account on his pc, on each account "swim" has HMA pro runing using random ip's from around the us. "swim then logs in and completes an affiliate offer (due to fresh ie browser) gaining "swim" 50 actions a day at $2.00 per. :confused:Is this possible?

    I dont think it is but it does have my lil devils attention.:cool:

    Yes possible, but not recommended... It will soon crash as the advertisers will not spend money on leads that do not make them money... make sense?

    I'd say it depends on what his affiliate terms are..

    Do you know what they are?

    You'll just get ban, it's not hard to detect HMA proxies, and if you're in the US you'll likely get sued for fraud at some point and also face criminal charges.

    People don't get paid for legitimate leads sometimes, your friend will definitely not get paid. A lot of my friends I brought into the CPA world have thought exactly like your friend, but there is a bigger picture than that. Won't work out well. Emails the CPA companies send out will bounce, that enough is a dead give away. To sum it up for you, CPA companies make money, you get paid, they don't make money, they shave till they make money, they don't make money shaving, you don't get paid. Better to go legit.

    He uses real accounts he set's up using a bot that creates and confirm's incoming emails.

    So, no email's bounce...

    well how many actions could privet proxy's do?

    1 ip = 5 actions? (not in a row of course)
    150 ip's rotating = 150,300,450,600 actions
