    There is several ways to create multiple CPA network accounts (For people located in the USA), but since I've been asked so many times how to do it, I'll lay out a general howto here.


    Find people that are willing to start a company and give you the profit that you make on the accounts. Don't use your next door neighbors, try to find people that are a decent distance away from your main/personal location. Offering a small % is usually enough to convince people. They will need to trust you with their SS# while applying to the state and be willing to take a trip to the bank to open a business checking account. Most banks offer free checking accounts and give you a ATM card and such too. You could go the Paypal route and lie about your business credentials, but your just asking to have your account locked. Most networks require you receive a check for the first payment as well.

    Find a mailboxes etc or some other mail box company that has a physical address. PO Boxes are not normally accepted when applying for your LLC/Corp either. Most of these places will forward all the mail to your own address for an extra fee. I have several myself and have only been there once to fill out the initial paperwork.

    Get a phone or disposable number online. I prefer getting a pre-paid phone from Walmart. It allows you to assign an area code that coincides with the company's location. I write the name of the business on the phone and keep it on the charger with a professional voice mail message at the ready.

    Establish an LLC/Corp. I'd strongly suggest looking at your state's website for an online application. This will save you a lot of money over places like LegalZ00m and give you a little insight on how the whole process works. Use the phone number that you bought and address for the mail box.

    After your state approves your LLC/Corp application, you can goto the IRS website and request your EIN #.

    Register a domain (ex. www.marketingvenicellc.com) using your company's info. Put up a standard business template and mention PPC advertising services etc. Hiring a content writer works. You want the network to see the site, look up the registration and see your company info. Don't use a proxy service to hide your details. Put your phone number on there, mail box address you bought and any other info that can help confirm your identity. Use the domain to create a email address to apply with (ex. Justin@MarketingVeniceLLC.com). Only read/send emails with your VPS, explained below.

    Your almost ready to apply, but you need one last thing. You don't ever want your accounts to get linked by logging in with the same IP. IMO, the easiest way to get around this is to rent a windows based VPS. Sure, you could buy proxies and such too, but you can always write off the VPS expense on your taxes. ;)

    Now your ready to apply to a network, log in without fear and be completely legal. :)

    Useful guide, but as far as I can tell, it will only work for US citizins, so for us UK BH'ers, you won't be able to follow it word-for-word.

    I added that fact, thanks. ;)

    I should also add that there is something to be said for 'aged' LLC/Corp's. The networks aren't stupid and know that people create new company's to apply for accounts. If you don't have the time to hold onto the company for a few months to get it aged and established, then think up a good reason why your company is brand new so you know what to say when the network asks.

    I'd re-read the thread, I think I explained that. If you talking about doing it without their consent, I'd advise against it. An actual PO Box won't work, you need something with a physical address and a suite/box number.


    Every state is different and they all have different ways of establishing an LLC/Corp. I'd try Google first and see if there is a state website for applying.

    Wont the CPA networks still want to know my real name and maybe request a photo id even if I use a LLC/Corp/DBA?

    Nope, they just want your W-9 (or anther form if you're out of the US.) I have never been requested a photo ID from a CPA network, not sure if they have any out there that even do that. On the W-9 they'll see your name + signature to verify, so they won't need much more from you really.

    I was asked twice for a photo ID (I don't remember the networks now).

    So it seems if I been banned from them in the past they can just ask me for a photo ID or cross check the name I signed with on my W-9 form and then deny my account approval.


    There has got to be another way fellas?

    The remote Windows server is a good tip. I have a separated dedicated boxes for each identity, it keeps things neat and you won't get busted like if you forgot to enable a proxy.

    Push back hard and they will settle for a utility bill which is easy to photoshop.

    Hahah wow, I'm genuinely surprised at the steps that "public" CPA networks have taken nowadays to ensure that no frauders join their network. Hasn't happened to me, which is why I'm surprised...so I'm guessing it's because I joined before they took these security measures.

    I apologize for the misinformation in my post above.

    No, you cannot (or shouldn't) lie to the government. You'll run into several issues doing this. You have to apply for an EIN with the IRS and they will ask you for your SS#. Making something up is a felony. If you go and do that and apply with a fake name, most networks cut checks with your company & owner name on the checks. You can't open a bank account with a fake name, so you'll end up unable to cash the checks.

    There is illegal ways to do all this, but it's exactly that, illegal.

    Correct, a friend/partner is the best way to go. That way your 100% legal with the gov. I've got tricks to help bend that to my favor, but I'm sure as hell not sharing.

    I think that part that really wasnt explained in full is this.
    Ok I create the company. the LLC or DBA with a EIN but every app has first and last name.
    How do you get around that if you have no partner and no person whos name you can put it in?
    Correct if I am wrong? If I apply on the appliaction to the network. Couldnt I make up a fictional name? That shouldnt matter because all the checks are going to be cut in the companys name and for for taxes it is being applied against the EIN right? Would the IRS ask later if you have a employee named (whatever fictional name you put on the app)?
    But then when it comes to the W-9 how do you work aroudn that part?

    So the LLC is basically permission to use your partners name? From what I understand of LLC's it is.

    Therefore not only allowing you to legitimately use someone's details, but you also have a legit company.

    Pofecker, you should mention this thread at the bottom of;
