    Hi Friends,

    I was wondering if anyone is still using the following method. Seems a little off-handed. I saw it posted awhile ago upon doing some research...and didn't know if any CPA offers where still out there offering to pay for these types of leads.

    1. Find a 1 page zip or email submit for a product giveaway. I used an offer for a Sony Bravia TV that pays $1.30
    2. Post an ad on CL in the free section:
    Headline: 40" sony bravia hdtv - cracked screen
    Ad Copy: brand new Sony 40" bravia hdtv. Won in a giveaway and was delivered with cracked screen. Can't afford to fix it. It's going out on the curb. Email for address.
    3. Let the emails responses build up for at least a day or two.
    4. Respond with the following:
    "Sorry for the delay. A lady promised she was going to pick it up tonight. If she flakes and it's still available I'll let you know.

    Seems like a trick just to get email addresses....?

    Why would a CPA affiliate pay for such leads?

    You can still do it, but here is a 90% chance that CL will ghost it, flag it or basically reported after you first contact user with link. Not to mention the fact they super strict on links-reply nowadays.
