    We all know that if you sign up for your own CPA offers that most big networks will ban you as soon as things don't look natural to them.

    But how do they know that "YOU" are signing up for that offer?

    Will they still raise the flags if you:
    - use a US-proxy
    - fake the referrer to a legit article
    - Use different "User Agents"
    - Ping the affiliate link with fake referrer to lower the conversion rate
    - randomize the sign-ups throughout the day
    - don't make to many sign-ups each day?

    Do you think that the CPA networks will still know that you signed up for the offer if you apply ALL the points? Are there any other possibilities I have missed?

    well the fact that none of those leads will convert into any amount of profit would be a red flag. The proxies are a big red flag but if you plan on doing this for amount of time.. they will catch you as its all fake info at the end of the day. Mix the traffic with a bunch of actual leads... maybe you could get away with it

    It's all about traffic quality and conversions on the backend. If you cheat them too much, you'll get banned. Always!

    The only thing you should be focusing on, is how to become an advertiser and use CPA networks for promoting your products.

    I guess I shouldn't need to mention that you will have the power to shave every motherfuc**** publisher with the blink of your eye and you won't need any proof that his traffic isn't converting. Double your profit with one click. Can't beat that;)

    Thanks for your answer.

    You said that the proxies will raise the red flag. How will they know that a proxy was used if they are all unique and from the US with A, B, C class ips? I just want to know, maybe my knowledge about proxies isn't the best :D

    You are right with the quality of conversions and traffic. I will stay under the radar and only do very few sign ups scheduled througout the day.

    Those CPA offers I use don't have any cancellations at all and the commissions are on auto-approve after the lead was made. I think it's because of the low commission. I'll just give it a try and report back to you guys.

    the amount of work it takes you to do fraud can just as well be put into generating legit leads.

    I was going to mention something like that. If you rank your site there is no need to fraud.
