    I have a question for all CJ Black Hat Experts. What is your experience with black hatting the cj network? Are they easy to black hat? And if so what are the best tactics and are there any offers i should stay away from when using black hat methods with cj? I am looking forward to hearing all your advise.

    black hatting the cj is difficult. It is different from other networks. If you stick to black hat, choose other CPA networks.

    Just a heads up. It is possible to create "black hat" CPA campaigns that are nearly indistinguishable from "white hat" campaigns.

    Think about it. At the end of the day CJ will use human discretion to decide if you get the boot or not. If you spend some time covering your tracks and creating a solid back up story then you will have a solid shot at still getting paid. Better yet, mix your leads with some WH leads.

    But ya, you are probably screwed if you simply just imitate one of the methods posted on this board without even changing anything or adding your own security measures.

    Be very careful with CJ. You need to be smart and cover your tracks and have good answers if they ask for your traffic source.

    CJ has their own tracking system, and it is probably the most fraud proof in the industry.

    Don't do BH immediately after opening your account-they will heavily monitor new accounts for fraud, etc.

    You best bet is sending genuine leads until you get paid a few times-then slowly start the blackhat stuff.

    It is tough to do, and it will be way easier doing it at CPA networks with flawed and undeveloped tracking systems.

    I have been BH CJ for 3 months now without any problem. It's an old account. Your best bet is to get a CJ old account and do your BH work on it :)

    Yep, my account was created in 2006 and had a few legit payments processed, then the account sat dormant for a year or two, and now i am pulling 4000 $ a month out of no where. So far they haven't said anything, but im sure that will change. every time the 20th comes around i dont expect the payment, but its a bonus if it comes through...
