    My CPA company banned me. I had iframed a zip submit offer on my blog and used a bit of spin to convince craigslist users to submit their zip codes.

    Then my CPA company emailed me and told me exactly what I was doing starting with the craigslist ad all the way to the iframe.

    But I don't understand how they figured out that I was using craigslist traffic and the fake spin since I removed it after one day of good conversions to be on the safe side. How the hell did they figure it out then? lol

    but the referrer was the website that i told them my leads would be coming from. I iframed the offer (with cakeslice) because the zip submit was for auto insurance and the people thought they were getting a free tv lol

    You must not have masked your url too well. They probably looked at where the leads were coming from, than found your site, googled your site name or something of the sort and found craigslist postings. Just an idea.

    A free TV? lol. That's great. Sorry about the ban, though.

    Probably did a search for your URL to figure out where your traffic was coming in the first place. :)
