    I read on some forum several years ago that somebody was posting fake apartment ads in populated cities. They had random pictures of a nice apartment with low rent. In order to be qualified for the apartment they needed a credit score check so the ad had a CPA link to some Free Credit Report offer. It's a complete scam because there isn't an apartment for rent. Has anyone tried something like this, and does Craig catch on to such things?

    Well this is black hat world after all :D

    (And to be honest this is positively tame compared to some of the stuff people get up to!)

    You need to be aware of Credit Score offers watching out for this. If you're not careful you'll be shut down and not paid (that goes for all BH stuff, but credit reports have really been on top of it lately).
