    most recently i have been reading a lot about bulk mailing/spamming, it seems like it is no problem at all to get lots of targeted emails and mass mailing them in a secure fashion...
    but however isn t it still super easy catching the guys doing that, by just taking a look at their aff-link? since i have read that there is no absolute way of cloacking your links, i mean the feds could just demand clickbank to give out the name of the person associated with it, or? furthermore those persons couldn t register at clickbank under a fake name, because then there wouldn t be a chance of getting payed and even if they manage to accomplish that, they would just need to check the banktransactions...

    does the can-spam act still apply if the spammer is seated outside the us in a country where spam is permitted in its own fashion? now that i read that i think they would just inform the police in that country, which leaves the question which law applys the one of the spammed or the spammers country....

    btw. these anti-spam laws are so dumb if you take into consideration that we are all day long spammed in our lives ( just think about carnival barkers... ), i mean marketing a legitament product, which might help people shouldn t be illegal. but as long as some fat politicians are making the big money from company diets everything is ok... nothing better then keeping the little man down...

    (sry, for the hate rant at the end, i start sounding like one of those 99%ers :p)

    then why are you signed up on a black hat forum?
    btw. i am not planning to do this myself, too bad risk reward ratio for my taste... also i am lacking skill. we are only talking hypotheticals here.
    i just think this stuff is very interesting, remember knowledge is power!
    so can anyone give me more insight? it seems like i can t figure it out on my own...

    well, did you clock your link and redirect it? that makes it hard for "normal people" to find your aff-id, however it is still easy for somebody who knows what he is doing...
    can anybody anwser my questions from the first post please?

    This is not a black hat forum, this is a black hat SEO forum.

    If you're going to mass email, you could probably get away with it doing it once as long as you have an unsubscribe request form at the bottom of the email since most people won't mind this. If the person knows about Clickbank, it will be very easy for them to report you for spamming though, so it's not really recommended. Clickbank doesn't care what country you're in, they'll still ban you for breaking their rules. That's why you'll hear that you should create your own opt-in lists. You'll have people wanting to buy instead of randoms who think they're going to get scammed.

    Well its more than seo forum....

    Anyways, i would suggest you try to make it as hard as possible to them find your aff id or report you. Some day someone will do it but then you just need make new account and start again.

    Well seeing that clickbank is pay on sale i dont know how effective spamming the links would be especially across emails.

    Really? I thought clickbank just doesn't care as long as you bring in sales and the traffic is not from email spam. Would you please be more specific on this?
