    Hi everyone,

    I have a question. Let's say I have a CPA network account, a website where I put offers, 100,000 real customers info (address, zipcode, email).

    If I hire some people, and use good socks/proxies to sign up about 100 offers/day using the info I have, then

    + Am I against the T&C of the CPA network ?
    + What will the network do if they find out? and how would they find out?

    Thanks for your answers!

    even if you do it at multiplies network, and keep it under $50/day/network.... eventually you will be banned. And if you pay your guys doing the work for you.. you need to pay them, and your network WILL NOT pay you.

    So it is basicly a "how to lose money on the internet by trying to rip off afiliate networks" method.

    You've most likely been rejected because your site is a forum. Forums are rarely a source of good CPA traffic. I'd suggest you build something else then re-apply as putting no site will also get you rejected.

    lol, is this against their ToS? well, duhhhhhhh You are basically scamming them, since you won't fall for any of offers they make money of.

    what's the difference between posting fake ad on CL, and hiring people to fill your offer (using real info)?

    In both case, advertiser doesn't gain potential customer. But then, once is considered BH, other scamming?

    When the advertisers who pay CPA networks realize that none of the leads provided are active, they'll eventually take a back frocing your network to check the traffic of its publishers ( implying you do not get caught directly )
    I made around 5,000 $ via this method
    its not exactly the same, you gotta add your own twist to bypass their security :)
    and ofcourse there's risk involved.
    PS - i no longer use this method , left it months ago.
    PPS - a safer and WH method would be to sell the database that you have :) ..

    Networks do not allow this but you could probably get away with it for a while.

    Its pretty obvious to spot fraud these days - you got to be good or so small volume it wouldn't be worth it.

    lots of 3rd part software to spot the dodge methods :)

    A. Yes, you are.
    B. Advertisers would report you and then ask you'd be removed.
    C. Wtf is up with keeping 100k info and voluntarily filling it? Do you see how you're actually doing nothing for the world in any tangible way?

    LOL. Will be banned. Technology will easily beat you. You are 5 + years to late. These steps have been tried since the start of clicking services like CPA and PPC. Try another option to earn. Cheers. AM;)

    You will get banned. Better option for you is to pay PPC company for ads it is not against TOS.

    Landing page + CPA offer + PPC = Money combination :)

    There is many great methods and tutorials here about that sort of promotion. Just search this great and unique forum.
