    Especially when you are with some reputed network like p33rfly. I have seen some fiverr gigs selling 30 guaranteed signups for just $5. How good or bad are these? Has anyone tried it before?

    They say those are all from USA/CA/UK and are from unique IPs too. I have a custom landing page for the offers that I am promoting but then I was wondering if it is worth giving those gigs a try.

    Absolutely not worth a single penny, and this kind of signups are very likely to get your CPA account banned forever.

    Even if they were legitimate sigups (they aren't), and the tracks were extremely well hidden (in most cases they won't be), it will still leave a big enough footprint for the advertiser/network to tell that the signups were incentivised.

    One question I always ask myself: Is it too good to be true?

    I would never do that..

    I'd better spend my fiverr money for link building/likes and etc.. to get my sites with higer rank and generate me more legit offer completions, rather than getting my cpa accounts suspended for few bucks..

    Don't do it , they sign up from proxies and nowadays any stupid CPA network platform can detect it ,
    you will lose your account fast .

    ^^ What he said. Most of the affiliate networks can detect when you're using proxies and ban you for it. Avoid it!

    Scrubbing - when a CPA network discounts bad leads from your paycheque (happened to you)

    Shaving - when a CPA network purposely fails to credit you for valid leads (didn't happen to you)

    The junk leads that you sent were scrubbed, and frankly you're lucky these leads were just scrubbed as most networks would ban your account right away.

    The reason why it could have been that you later on din't get credit for good leads that you sent is that many tracking solutions calculate an average % of each affiliate's bad leads and then apply this same percentage in the future. So if this figure went extremely high due to the junk leads it would be the reason behind you not getting credit for valid leads later on. Hope this makes sense.

    30 signups would net the seller much higher than $5

    Why would he/she sell it for $5?

    How stupid can you be.
