    I've been thinking, hostgator pays $50 per each paid member and if you can deliver more than 21 members each month, they pay $125 per member, they pay net 30 which means that by the end of the month I get paid whatever I made, so my question is, since they charge $7.95 monthly per member, is it safe to fake the signups, pay them first month, and then pay then again 30 days later, cash in as many comissions as I can in a month, and repeat the process with a new hostgator affiliate account next month?

    is this workable?

    First of all in 90% cases HostGator would call you up for account verification.
    How many times will you create a new account via paypal.com
    How many credit cards can you get in?
    They pay 100$/signup through cj.com , without any 21 signups limit fyi

    well, it isn't that simple, since you need private proxies, multiple payment methods, such as VCCs, verified paypal accounts, and you actually have to put some money on the line with this.

    But my question is, does hostgator asks for some information to my fake leads such as personal id or something, or can I basicly just create a considerable amount of paid memberships without any risk of losing my investment?

    So, they do call?

    And if no one answers they won'activate the account right?

    I'm getting a deal that will get me 50 verified french and german paypals monthly, also I can get some VCCs at cheap price.

    My question then is, is there any hosting/adult/or otherwise affiliate where I can use solely the process that I described above, creating some fake memberships myself, pay them 2 months in a row and cash-in?

    Hostgator:- If doubtful, they will ask for Identity proof and copy of the card (your fake account uses).

    And they are the most difficult company to get commissions from.

    There are other companies who ACTUALLY pay, but then they dont have this option of "1 cent" hosting..

    I'm not looking for 1 cent offers, I'm aware of those, the point is, some companines pay a comission of $50 - $100 for a membership that costs $10-$20 monthly, I'm willing to pay that value to get the comission that is 4x-5x higher.

    what companies do you advise to use this method?

    This is a pretty slimy way of going about things, and I don't think it would work. For the amount of time and energy you'd have to put into it (with mulitiple credit cards, proxies, account creations, and on and on) you'd be better off just promoting their actual service and getting legit affiliate commissions.

    I saw a member offering 15 dollars for verified paypal, so I guess it is the going rate. If you can get 125 dollars for 15+21+some effort you are good to go.

    They pay after 60days, not 30 days. 2 months commission hold to make sure no one cheats them. And they ask for documents for suspected accounts + you need much more than just paypals and vcc to "fool" them. Can be done in a few ways but not as what you said. They check EACH sale.

    i also had problems to get my own account apprived because i had a little mistake in the sognup form.
    so i know how they look after the accounts and would say it´s very hard to fake them so it won´t be profitable.

    You may be able to con yourself a couple of extra referrals. But if your referrals are 100% bogus they will soon catch on, they will have stats and will know what the average rate is for someone to signup for just 1 month.

    So your best chances are to say for 1 in every 5 you promote you fake. Otherwise you will get banned and be down $xxx you spent on paypal accounts and paying for hosting.

    I bought my website hosting from hostgator today and used my affiliate user link to buy it and made 50 dollars and it also got my thinking that this might be great idea to make some easy money. I thought about gathering 20~ friends and paying them 15 dollars each for buying host (100~ dollars profit each for me)

    I have to agree with shm03. Can be done but not all fake. If you mix it with another method I seen on here you may have something

    I really don't have any expertise in SEO or getting users to pay.

    I can invest some money but not much, with verified paypals and proxies, is there any affiliate company that I can cheat by paying for memberships yo get my comission?

    looks too difficult, Dillusion. I don't recommend this method.

    Honestly, I have thought about it a few times ago, but after I have some conversation with my girl, we decided that this thing will not work well.

    Thanks for the insight, I'm somewhat desperate to make some money, my wife is making threats that she's going to leave me and take my boys with her, I'm without a job, she's constantly saying that there's no such thing as making a living online, making a fool out of me, I'm trying ewhoring for weeks now, have only made $20 with some free signups, chatting 6-7 hours in a row every single day.

    Trying freelancing also, but I'm never hired, and when I do is to rewrite some 10 articles to a guy and earning $10 max in a full day's working and rewritting.

    I really do not know where to turn to, I'm not one of those guys who spends all day reading forums and asking for "how do I make mone out of nothing", because I'm well aware that does not exist, but damn, I've been fully commited to IM for almost 2 months now, and I haven't done anything worth it.

    And now the consequences are closing in, wife's threatning to leave, mocking me, looking at me as if I was going nuts for beliving in IM.

    At this point I don't matter if I cheat affiliates or whatever, I just want to be able to make some money out of IM, just to proof everyone wrong, just to get a little timeout and less pressure around me.
