    Tools needed-

    Alexa Rank Cheater,
    Auto Traffic Generator,
    Prstorm,
    Pressrelease equalizer,
    Submission equalizer,


    Basically write a press release a day and submit it through PR equalizer, run Prstorm once a day for a week to 5% at most. Use alexa rank cheater at night while sleeping, and use autotraffic generator as much as your bandwith can handle. Then, BAM sell your site on eBay or Digitalpoint with pics of all your fancy stats! In reality, you actually should be getting some decent traffic by this point just thanks to the Prstorm and Alexa. However its not permanent without some SEO work, and who has time for that when we have a site to sell that looks like its worth a few thousand bucks but only took a few days to build?

    May I ask what kind of site it was. I mean, a wordpress blog or a hand designed site or something pumped out by a website creator tool and fancied up. I'm not asking for specifics...

    Any other relevant info you could provide without giving away too much would be appreciated. For example, did you have an email list to give away with the site, rss subscribers.. ? Or did the guy/girl pay u thousands for just a simple high traffic site.

    Thanks !
    AJ.

    Bwahaha yup, plus they rarely realize prstorm is to thank for all the REAL traffic they are getting. and that dries up after google blacklists them (if they do) and really this works with any site! Be it an adsense page or an entire dating network. Its all about the stats man, just say you havent monetized yet ;)

    Where is the line between fraud like this and Blackhat SEO?

    Exploiting SE weaknesses, mass producing everything, misleading people a bit, yeah, okay, but this is serious intent to defraud people out of their money, out right thievery at it's best.

    We need a new section called "Stealing Money" or "Fraud at its finest" for threads like this.

    Or, yet again, I am in the wrong place.

    Yeah I agree with you on this one. This is fraud, there should be another section or something for this.

    I had the same reaction as most of you guys, and felt like writing a 'how dare you' post, but this is a blackhat forum and we're here to learn what people do to make money... not to judge them or their practices.

    Blackhat can get a little shady! Just my opinion.

    Also, I have a question... If you pay by Paypal, can you challenge the transaction after a couple of months if the traffic was false. Can you somehow prove that the traffic was fake because it died of so quickly... Doesn't ebay have or had a safe harbour thingie to protect buyers..

    No. Unless you actually bought a physical item you can't do shit. I know this because you kinda get fucked when you buy something via paypal thats digital that doesn't work as advertised.

    Disclaimer: I would never do what is talked about in this thread.

    BUT

    Quite frankly, if you're spending large amounts of money for a website and basing your purchase on just a few days of stats, you're not getting defrauded, you're paying money to learn a very important life lesson about doing due diligence before purchasing ANYTHING from someone you don't know.

    Well, he does mention that you should be getting real traffic with some SEO upkeep right?...

    So that doesn't make this totally scum of an idea...

    Not saying "I agree" and I'm going to do this...

    It's a fine line I'm not willing to walk IMO...

    Been burnt before for big bucks too, I laugh now, but cried then, lol...

    Very true, unless its a physical product paypal isn't going to do squat for you. They don't get involved in such disputes as its a "he said, she said sort of thing"

    Cash, I gotta tell you that although we have had our differences in the past, those differences are forgotten and done a way with; this is pretty slick and I like it a lot!

    As with all else on the internet, Caveat Emptor!

    Don't worry; be happy and bank!
