    Morning guys!

    So I found an affiliate campaign that pays pretty good, with $2,50 per lead from the US. I'm trying to code a bot that automatically visits the page and creates an account. However, I ran across this problem:

    As the leads are only valid when you click the activation link they send you in an email, I figured I couldn't fill in some random email addresses as I would have to open them myself to click the activation link. So I came up with this solution:

    Gmail has a weird feature that emails send to yourname+[RANDOM NUMBER HERE]@gmail.com all get delivered to [email protected]. So you just add a plus and a random number after yourname. I tried using this knowledge, by writing a script that fills in a certain email address I made for this bot + a random number.

    Genius right? Well... no: the PPL site I use doesn't allow me to put the "+" symbol in my email address.

    I was wondering if any of you had a solution, either a way to get around the restriction of the "+" symbol or another way to make sure I can click all the activation links in the emails.
    Thanks hugely in advance for your help!

    encode the + sign, IE try yourname%[email protected] and see what happens. %2B is the hex code for "+". Try different encoding methods, eventually one will slip through.

    Thanks for the tip, trying it out right now! What would different encoding methods be?

    Yea...this won't work.

    It's one question, that it's morally wrong what you're planning to do. It's a bigger problem, that you won't get paid or maybe once and that's it.
    Your fake leads won't convert and in 2016 you'll have a really hard time to find a company, which would pay you for fake leads. No company will throw free money at you just because of your two beautiful eyes. If they make money, you'll make money too, if they don't , you won't either. It's as simple as that.

    If you figured this out all by yourself or mostly yourself, i think you have a future in IM, if you use your brain to make money legitimately.

    P.S. If you know about the + sign Gmail trick, you must know about the [email protected][email protected] trick too.

    You definitely got a point there. I am totally aware of the fact that I probably will not be paid, and that this isn't very ethical (at all!). However, this is merely an experiment and a challenge for myself, teaching myself how to apply coding languages and to learn how to work around problems. I don't plan on making any big money here. If I don't get any money, I will be happy as I learned some new things, and if I do get some money, well, I'll be happy that learning myself something got me a few free coffees!

    Thanks a lot for these kinds words, you probably can't imagine how happy you made me, a teenager playing around with IM, with this small sentence. You are definitely motivating me to keep trying! (And this time in more legitimate ways of course ;-))

    They say you find some of the most important things in the PS, and that's true in this case! Although I remember it now you tell me, I totally forgot about it while coding. I just checked it out, and the site indeed allows dots ("."). However, I still have to figure out how to write a script that randomly inserts dots in my email address... Any ideas for that guys? :)

    Thanks a lot! You really made my morning!

    Try this: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/create-unlimited-gmail-accounts-in-5-seconds-gribble-mail.53264/

    I'm not sure, if it's what you want, because it will output all the possible results of a Gmail address by putting in multiple dots. The longer the address, the higher amount of variations you'll get. With that said, it's not random, but it will give you all the results in order, what you can randomize for instance with the online tool called textmechanic. Maybe it's not the most elegant solution, but this is one way to do it with free tools and requires no coding. :)

    Whoaaah awesome! Now I just need to code a thingy that chooses one email of the list, then removes it from the list after it is used... Back to the coding table I guess!

    Or you can do the randomizing beforehand the way i explained it above and you can use the randomized list in order after that. :)

    You should use backconnect proxies, then use one proxy per instance, create the account. Rinse and Repeat.
    If your marketing plan is profitable you could afford one backconnect proxy plan.

    I think this would be better than this kind of shitty tricks.

    But if you can't afford this kind of proxies, well, it's good then till u can.
