    1)usage of an elite, unused proxy

    +

    2)Greendot prepaid card (that shows up as a debit card on their end)


    =

    tons of referrals on trainn websites?

    I know that people have gotten their accounts placed on hold for the usage of vcc's. However, I've heard that some people slip by with the usage of certain prepaid debit cards. (greendot especially). Also, some people have gotten caught using proxies, but if you were to purchase private proxies would this be an issue?

    I just want to know if this method still works :)

    if you are new, you will be caught 100%.

    IMO, i dont think greendot prepaid cards work anymore since they are publicly available to ANYONE.

    private proxies are okay but if they are too close of a range, networks will catch on to this.

    trust me, it's not worth it unless you're ready to lose some money.

    why do you say that? is it because new members are watched more closely? is the verification process stricter? as long as you mix in whitehat referrals should you be fine?

    i would rather join forums like freelunchroom and ask people to join under me instead of trying to defraud them using my own vcc's or what not.

    Well unfortunately, its a 2 way door, I was in my initial stages of doing freebies (before you stand a chance to get others to do them for you, you have to buildup you rep/i Trader stat.) I signed up for a few offers, made sure to read to TOS for each company, and canceled my subscription to them all in time,to prevent further charges to my credit card.But most of the companies you sign up for make it very very difficult to cancel your subscription, providing fake phone numbers, or ones that just rang endlessly.I had to go as far as to call me bank and have them try and contact the vendor and cancel charges.

    To say the least, it was nerve racking, knowing that they were going to take $100 out of my account if I did not manage to cancel.

    My long winded point is, they try and scam too, no one is really innocent in these "freebies". Don't get me wrong, you can still make money as there are some reputable companies out there, just have to sift through them...

    Yeah. That's true. And signing up under various identities might make the canceling process even harder. Has anyone tried to do this and been successful?
