    Hey
    I am looking for any/all advice on how I can disguise my computers identity and IP in order to be able to use MY SAME computer to create multiple sign ups to an affiliate program with different creditcard information without my IP/MAC being detected and the sale being flagged as fraud because of it.
    Using Proxies works but somehow they are still detecting the IP address and the sales are going through but im not being credited for the sale.

    Im looking for serious answers here, not looking for anything but advice or tips on how this can be done. thanks

    To begin with, totally disregard the MAC issue, this is not sent in and is not visible in HTTP transactions.

    Issue most likely cookies or using same IPs/same block of IPs, also try mixing in different web browsers

    Check your Flash cookies as well.
    Deleting your cookies will not secure as they can easily track you using Flash cookies.

    They are also known as Local Shared Objects (LSO cookies).

    There is a firefox add-on called Better Privacy
    Code:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6623
    If you use IE check this

    Code:

    Also install ccleaner and run it first before every new purchase

    Thanks for the replies and help boys !
    does the firefox add on you recommended remove ALL the flash cookies 100% ?
    is there ANYTHING else you can think of that they may be using to detect me?

    Imac address cannot be detected by someone who doesn't run the equivalent of spyware, trojan or such on your system with full privileges. However you've a massive spyware parasite running on every modern browser - flash cookies. So shred them.

    That said, aside cleaning up all the junk; don't use the same computer if possible (...hint: it doesn't mean going to use the one of your mum, gf or neighbor... not at all)

    thanks for the tip. But why would you not explain what you mean ? Im looking for specific help here NOT tips and riddles :)
    Please explain what you mean by using a different computer but not a computer in the same house.
    Thanks

    Yes it does.

    If you want to be 101% sure instead of 100% install ccleaner and run that too.:D
