    My girlfriend yesterday of all people came to me and asked me about some website testing company she wanted to make money from. I instantly knew it was a scam, so I checked it out.

    This company was paying via papal for 'assignments', which were to evaluate websites and rate them.

    The catch was they had to test the form :) too and report back.

    They were paying a cut of $1 per action, and my gf thought it was a shit.

    She actually saw me have an open thread from harro explaining the jessica alba ppc scheme, and still didn't get it.

    Even after I told her it was a scam she still didn't believe me :D

    Go to those dumb ass money making forums and pitch that, and you would be making hundreds a day off this in no time.

    That's a fun idea -- pay off your monthly fee and get paid for the rest. That way you'd virtually guarantee a minimum number of CPA payouts per member :)

    Do you have a URL for the said Jessica Alba PPC scheme? I googled and couldn't find it...

    Haha, you got an affilate link to fleshlight? Do computer geeks buy those?

    Search for jessica alba here in the forum

    rather good scheme I almost guarantee, as people that are falling for this and actually signing up aren't smart enough to see its a cpa scheme

    Yeah guys, this is actually the result of a method that was sold here not long ago. And with that being said, to protect both the buyers and the seller (from you guys picking it apart and revealing it to the entire world), I'll have to pull the plug.
