    So I have found a way to fill out my own offers however I need to figure out a way change up my user agent and the operating system I am using so it doesn't look like I am using windows server to fill out every offer.

    I have tried some firefox plugins, and doing some searches on here but I havent been able to come up with something that works.


    Does anyone have any suggestions.

    Have you tried 'User Agent Switcher' another add-on for Firefox. Works great for me for changing browser ID and user agent strings. The only bad thing about it is that you have to go to the 'Customize' menu for firefox's toolbars and drag the icon to a toolbar to choose an agent and activate the change.

    You can also load custom user agents if you want for more specialized uses.

    Cheating on network will lead you only to banned account. IM is about marketing and you have to find out how to bring traffic. There will always karma on everything, you do something bad, you will receive something bad also. You build your IM business on wrong foundation. There are many information available on BHW, all you have to do is read and apply it, rather than thinking to cheat the network.

    I second the recommendation for firefox's user agent switcher. Works like a charm. Keep in mind that some devious sites can actually detect that you've done something like that and penalize you for it. Beware of flash and flash cookies as well.

    I totally agree with jay2success. You'd better focus on a strategy of how to bring targetted traffic to your offer. What you are doing now is only waisting time and money because the networks will definitely catch you in the end.

    Well, there are multiple ways for a website to detect your user agent.

    1. The most obvious way is by examining your http headers. The firefox add-on user agent switcher will definitely do the trick for that.

    2. The harder approach is to run javascript to inspect the browser configuration. This is *much* harder to spoof and I'm not aware of a plugin that does the trick. However, I'd be interested if anyone is aware of an approach.

    #1 is used the vast majority of the time.

    I hope this is helpful,
    Brad

    thank you for that plugin. It works like a charm. Made $1420 so far today filling out my own offers. They already put me on weekly direct deposits.

    Thanks for the help.

    Lol let me know if you get paid. You do realize that the networks browse BHW..

    And they can probably tell who you are.. now that you said how much you made in a day, on which day, and that they put you on weekly deposits already... kinda wouldn't be hard to put 2 and 2 together from an AM's perspective. :rolleyes:

    Haha way to keep it under the radar dude! Aside from the fact you just gave trolling AMs enough information to put 2 and 2 together, it doesn't matter how well you cover your tracks, they won't even bother looking at user agents and ip addresses in your case. None of your leads will convert and you won't get paid. Period.

    Also, your limited knowledge on changing your user agent indicates you neglected to take into account the many other footprints they use to bust fraudsters like you. Have fun!

    Guys, trying to talk this guy out of it is futile. He seems set on doing this, I say, let him.

    eshelt, I hope you know what you are doing.

    Also, are you expecting to get away with this long term, or are you just doing a quick smash and grab?

    If so, do realize this: CPA's (esp. BIG networks) have had YEARS to perfect the art of catching fraud. And something tells me, you are not very experienced in the IM thing yet and are desperate, cause you are trying to send fake leads instead of real ones.

    So keep in mind this equation:

    If you piss off the advertiser, than that advertiser will pick up the phone and curse out whatever CPA you are using to send fake leads, cause they are NOT making any money with you, cause, well, YOU don't give a fuck, right? All you care about is getting that paper by any means, right?

    SOOOOO.....
    1.CPA (the ones who pay) gets chewed out.
    2. CPA VP or president tracks down your affiliate id, calls up you AM, and then proceeds to chew his or her ass out a new one for not staying on top of his or her affiliates (you).
    3. Mr. Boss man asks to have your leads forfeited (that means having all of those numbers reduced back to $0, if your lucky)......or........
    4. Not only do you make $0 dollars at the end of all this, but your account gets banned....

    One more thing, depending on how much pain you cause the CPA network, if that advertiser leaves (meaning he dosen't pay the CPA network for the leads you generate) or they give you that money and you decide to be a badass and not send it back, you better be in a third world country, cause they WILL come after you.

    So do your thing homie, just use whatever money you get away with to either


    A. Hire a good lawyer (you will lose anyway, but you can try)
    B. Buy a ticket out of any developed nation with ties to the u.s.!


    Sending fake leads to a CPA network is the equivalent to robbing a bank by holding a gun to the bank teller while filling out a withdrawal slip with your name and address on it.


    Good luck. Keep us updated.

    P.S. something tells me you are not serious about this, cause its a very dumb decision, even a noob-ist of noobs know that (common sense). But hey, do you!

    :y:

    C'mon man I don't know about that now! Don't you think you are being a littttle bit extreme lol.

    If you are an idiot and get one network for thousands of bux yah maybe they will come after you and sue your company, but you won't go to prison. (So not the equivalent of robbing a bank at gun point) lol.

    Most likely he will just get banned... but yah if he does that much in a day filling out his own offers with one network he is an idiot and he will get sued probably.. or his company will..

    Who the fuk r u GB5000? The boogie man.. and overzealous AM?.. puhleeaseee.. robbing a bank... ahahhahahahaa.. u funny little man!
