    After reading a post here, I was inspired to try something.

    Short story - I created a CL ad looking for reviewers. I tell applicants the screening process is to download an app, and write a short 75 word review. I send them a cloaked link, send them to an OGADS offer with PPI, and the unlock goes to my web form for them to submit their "review." I tell them they didn't get it, i get paid, they don't think anything of it.

    (i guess that's a spoon fed post to some?)


    I feel bad about it, and I didnt think I would. Realistically, no one knows any better, and I build all the supporting websites and social accounts making the biz look real. It looks legit, but my gut doesn't feel good....



    So the question is, would you do it?



    And what are you thoughts on it.


    *BTW I was trying to make a poll, but not sure if I can?

    Just kidding. This is blackhatworld man, lots of people here do unethical stuff. If you can't live with it, then simply don't do it. You're going to get a wide range of answers here between sarcasm, people telling you you're an ass hole and people saying who cares. No one can answer this for you though, you need to make your own decision.

    Everybody is different. I would not do it. It's not a long-term money making method, which is what I invest my time and money into. It might make you some quick cash, but in the long-run, there's nothing to show for it. (Can't sell it!)

    Ethically speaking, I still wouldn't do it. Just not the way I roll. :cool:

    It's a real easy problem to get over, once you start making more money it becomes your alpha lifestyle. By all means try and find a way to enjoy the feel as it leads to money being a simpler problem to deal with.

    Over the course of your journey here it'll start displaying as what our type of marketing touch is and the true nature of what we do.

    Don't feel bad, I went through that phase a couple years ago :) .
