    if you create a forum or already have a forum where people have to register in order to post can you somehow use the registration form to send email submits to CPA offers ?

    something like this:

    the 'victim' wants to register on your forum and enters all his details
    when he hits submits can you emulate a package being sent to one of the email submit offers from a CPA network ?

    if yes after he hits 'submit details' the first time just send him to the real registration form on which you write something like 'please re-enter CAPTCHA' in order for the 'victim' to not see through your scheme :D

    is that even possible ? :-/

    Hi,
    it would be theoretically possible but you need to consider a couple of things. First javascript cant be fully used due to crossdomain scripting restrictions, which means you need to work around with popups, iframes or php... But let us first consider the best case szenario where the user register on your board and you are able to create a fake lead, not only with the user data, but also his ip, his user agent and a faked referer... What happens next? The user will receive a email to verify his registraion on the fake lead. Even if he do it because he think it came from your board, after he clicked, he will notice, this is not what he wanted. Sooner or later it will come out, especially when the generated leads are no use, means the user you provided never login, dont post anything, simply dissapears after registration and you will get banned. This was already best case, under normal circumstances, you would need a way to pass the data to the third party. PHP would be a safe way, but the problem is, it will use the server ip, which make it useless. Sending the data in a popup or hidden iframe should work but if the registration process requires some kind of random key in a hidden input field or a captcha, it wont work anymore. Also a good referer need to be considered.
    So in my oppinion, possible, but with a lot workarounds only and a high possibility to get banned. Also 80% of cpa signups cant be used because they use keys or captchas. Nothing for longterm, at best a quick scam method...
    Sorry, but they are not stupid and they know how to protect themselve from fake leads... :)

    Yes absolutely NOT long term...
    Even if you manage to make it happen, it will just be for some quick bucks, but not long term
