    Hello everyone,

    Looks like a lot of the noobs get roasted on here but I'm going to give it a shot anyways. If you get paid for every email submitted on a CPA, why can't you submit your own fake emails? Wouldn't you just have to type in random email addresses from different IP addresses?

    First because there are real advertisers paying for those actions and this is basically fraud.

    Second because the CPA systems are really good at this and if your emails don't pass certain tests you'll get kicked out.

    Advertiser expect to get some conversion from some of your email submit (they will try to sell other products) so if they find that you try to fuck with them and all your traffic is bullshit, they will not pay you and ask for reversal lead, and you will be certainly banned from the network you use.

    They have systems in place to detect such activity. Short answer is don't even think about it. You will get caught and terminated.

    Maybe if you're already sending them hundreds of good leads, you can pad it with a fake few of yours, but you need to evaluate if it's worth risking your account being banned.

    The safest way is an honest way, you really need to know what you re doing to play a big network that invests alot in security measures

    great point. in general, it wont do good for anyone. advertisers will lose confidence in the network which will hurt them and hurt all publishers. also they too wanna make a living. and besides, i will not feed my family with such dirty money ( assuming the CPA network's system is dumb and advertisers are dumber) lol

    If they caught you doing this, you won't get paid anyways. And they will spread your name around to other networks so you get blacklisted. You don't wanna tarnish your name when it comes to CPA networks. Word goes around fast. I wouldn't want to be known as "that guy".

    Probably that hard work could bring much more in return that $300 if you drove legit traffic. There are no conversions behind fake traffic, very strange that you even got paid by the cpa networks
