    That would make pretty penny, but I'm sure you also get sued if you cant cover your ass totally.

    I saw this as it was happening, he used a bit.ly link so I could see the clicks coming in. Every minute he was receiving about 2,000+ clicks.

    How do people hack these things? Do they "guess" the password or find out the answers to the security questions?

    Very stupid, no way he will get paid. They will track the link to the CPA company, contact the CPA company, his account will be banned, and any information on him will be turned over to authorities (i.e. what his account info is, IP addresses he accessed his account from, etc...). So all in all it was wasted, with no earned income, and a possible court date.

    They say in the news report " The Twitter and Facebook links on Gaga's pages went to a website that appeared to be a phishing scam, soliciting personal information from users. "

    lmao so clueless they are :) but it might been done for there own personal use for collecting the information.

    I highly doubt he got ban...

    A) find a shady CPA network
    B) use one account (let it get "ban")
    C) Transfer funds to new account

    Rinse and repeat... Or even easier create your own CPA network on hasoffers or similar service. Who's going to ban you then?

    I think the smartest thing he could have done would be to setup a phisher and collect as many account logins as possible.

    Then load all the accounts into a bot and have it post a tweet with a CPA offer in it.

    If he did this there wouldn't be any way to link him to Lady Gaga's twitter and he'd still be able to bank $XX,XXX easily.

    17 million followers? Each email submit is like, what, $1 ATLEAST?

    $17 million hard earned money? Even at 1%, it's like earning $170,000!

    LMAO
