    so I have managed to get to C.) for google maps in my city using an outsourced worker in Egypt

    want to put him to work on sites for every city with a population of more than 100k in my area (I have a carpet cleaning company, 1 worker and a van)

    I was thinking about posting a believable "work from home" job in all those cities on craigslist that requires the person to have an actual house, and then offering them $50 to agree to send me the postcard when they get it.

    This sounds pretty iffy, I would hate to invest all that time and money in an new site and have some craigslist flake not bother to send me the postcard.


    Anyone done this before and have some tips?

    That's exactly what I am in the middle of doing at the moment. I make these sites and it really doesn't have to cost any money. I can easily help you as I know exactly what you're looking for ...but I was curious if you can tell me how you got around the post card verification ;)
    Let's work together. I do construction so I'm not in your industry field and probably not from same city either.

    If you read his post then to me it sounds like he didn't get around it. He is asking if you think the craigslist with that person sending him the card was a good idea.

    Personally If it works that would be great. I wouldn't pay until you get the card and have it verified and I would say maybe start out by offering as low as $20.

    Agreed, don't offer $50, but rather $10 or $20 for two reasons:

    - Of course, this lowers your expenses, and many people will be happy to simply receive and resend a postcard for that price.
    - Being offered $50 for this is too much and would seem fishy for many, they will just wonder "what's the catch?" and won't bother hitting you up.
