    I have been selling stuff from China on eBay and Amazon. Juggling multiple accounts got tedious, so i have been teaching people locally how to do it and i set myself up as the middleman and sell them the stuff at a markup.

    I also tried to start a shop at Shopify but i didn't get any traffic.
    I have a friend of mine that can modify Wiis and has access to a bunch of games on a XHDD and a really nice browser and he asked me to help him sell them online, but i don't know enough about SEO to get traffic to a site selling these Wiis.

    I also run a clan from one of these social networking games and i require people to sign up for a referral program so i can make money and i use this money to buy upgrades for our fort. Anyway, when i cam up with this idea i came across AWsurveys and $1.25 per referral seemed decent enough just for a few minutes to sign up. Anyway, they say they have a $50 payout and that they will eliminate fraudulent accounts. Well, I met the $50 pay out three times already. Last time they knocked my residual from $50 to $42, so i figured that perhaps my new clan n00bs were being fraudulent, so i chose to keep at it, after i reached $50 again for the 3rd time they knocked it down to $32, which means that they knocked off accounts they clearly didn't think were fraudulent before!

    Oh man, didn't you figure out it's a scam? The best second result on google shows a site that has flagged them as scamming and deceptive. Forget about them and about the money, and head over to the CPA section to learn more about legit high paying networks. ;)

    I'm not going to name the game, but it's one of those click games like Mafia Wars, when you run a clan, your members are very loyal. I hope to utilize them to make enough money so i can pocket some of it but right now i don't make enough and i thought i would make a bit, $50/month, so i can upgrade our clan fort.

    I should've looked in Google. I keep underestimating search, i should be looking up everything on a SE.

    I was buying replicas from China but now there seems to be a scary crack-down going on, so i'll have to figure out something else to do to make the rent.

    Anyone know a way i can churn up $800 in one month? That's about the sum of my monthly upkeep and there are no jobs were i live...well, there are but there is way too many people applying for them. After trying CraigsList for awhile i was baffled that i culdn't land a single job or simple moving/computer repair gig, so i made some fake ads to see what was happening...i got 3 responses every minute for each one!

    It's bad out there, really bad and now they are cracking down on the replicas. I was doing DVDs but only perfect replicas as i would inspect them myself, but now i can't even do that. I hate these draconian IP laws. They only sell their legit products to a few and you have to be rich to land a deal and the little people get pissed on, then when we find a way to pay the rent and food they make a law to screw us...

    I'm sorry for the rant. Anyway, i hope my game tip helps someone here and i hope my warning about replicas stops someone from getting screwed. I would appreciate if a more experience black-hat can answer my question. I have 1 month or i'll end up on the streets.
