    Hey, I found a "free" squeeze page app called "instant squeeze page" on cee-net in the downloads area. A few thousand downloads. File size close to a MB. So, I figured I'd give it a shot.

    FINE. I downloaded the thing. Tried to run it and a registration box comes up saying all it needs is a name and email. I clicked it and it goes to their sales page. Well, not too bad as long as I get the freaking registration code. I have enough emails that can be spammed 'til kingdom come without bothering me. So I put in an email account. Guess what happened? Nothing. Thank goodness for disposable accounts. I feel like a :dunce:

    It's really f**ked up that cee net has fake downloads that just point to email harvesting sales pages. But they killed that site years ago, it's just an ad farm now. I don't know why I bother to check there anymore.

    Great BH method tho! I admire the technique. Put a fake app as a free DL on a "reputable" site and drive traffic to your sales page.

    Most likely they're going to take it down, but honestly..what are you going to do with 3500 emails? ;)
    suspicision would arise if it would be getting millions of downloads

    I believe they only scam for malware and since email submit isn't "malware" it's cool ;)

    Although...if only it would work with email submit offers :(
