    For everyone who doesn't know already, skittles was doing a promotion where you get a free 7 day Xbox Live Gold code inside every pack you buy. Someone found a loop hole where they could submit the same code multiple times for tons of free codes (loophole is now patched but tons of these codes are now on ebay for very cheap). Now that you have a source for the codes I am going to show you how to sell all those free / cheap codes you have for $10 each.

    That's right I said $10 per.


    Step One
    Find yourself a picture of the 12 month membership card.

    Step Two
    Post on classifieds that your selling 12 month membership for $10. (They normally sell for $49.99 - $59.99 so this seems like a good deal and attracts a lot of attention).
    Note: Your not actually selling the 12 month memberships.

    Step Three
    When they contact you (and they will) explain to them you don't normally sell on XXX site anymore because the last time you met someone they followed you to another store and broke into your vehicle. (Feel free to come up with your own story here). They will ask you how they can get the membership and how they pay you. Explain to them that you will accept paypal and send them the 12 month membership code after you have confirmed the payment. This is where I lose people. They will say that they don't feel comfortable or it sounds like a scam. Tell them that to prove that it isn't a scam you will send them a free code first to ease their worries (this is where you send them the free 7 day trail code). Most people after confirming the free code is legit will then feel comfortable enough to go ahead and buy the 12 month membership from you for $10. I even had someone want to buy more than one at once.

    Easy as 1 2 3. Don't forget to add your own little twist ;)

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Taste the rainbow! :p

    My Friend. While this sounds fine, the post isn't structured properly, you're missing some core points here. I am pretty clear on what you're saying. However I'm sure other people would like to know that you mean for them to search for and acquire a 7-day trial code from a vendor at a lower rate. There's nowhere where you personally will find FREE 7 day trial codes to sell..

    Also, Where on earth are you finding 12 month codes for free or less than 10 dollars to sell for 10 dollars? Either this is the worst Idea or post I've seen or you sir, have mastered the art of Ghost Selling, Either that or selling Snake oil.

    BHW is used to much better posts, with core concepts defined, NOT SPOON-FED, simply fleshed out for discussion.

    This is not possible, Either the OP is scamming Classified users out of 10 dollars or he knows Bill Gates.

    You don't, I assume. OP is talking about promising a 12 month card by sending them a "free" 7 day trial which they will then send you $10 for the 12 month card because they trust you. You then pocket the $10 and walk away. It's a scam. Correct me if I'm wrong?

    Yes, almost same concept as e-whoring but not quite. For people asking where do I get the 7 day free trail, have you not seen the skittles promotion? People have been getting thousands of free 7 day trail codes from that promotion by a hack (loop hole or whatever). They are selling these codes very cheap on ebay now also.

    So OP your basically scamming people? Promising that you will deliver them a 12 month membership for $10 but instead you give them a 7 day membership? Better hope the address on your paypal isn't yours or one day someone might pay you a visit at home.

    Also, they will just dispute the payment with PayPal and get their money back leaving you with a minus balance.

    This isn't black hat. This isn't even internet marketing. This is just scamming 10 bucks from suckers one at a time... Not to mention they will obviously dispute the payment and get their money back anyway. I think you're better off stealing energy drinks from a gas station and trying to pawn them off to teenagers.

    You can sell 7 Days memebership al lowest price and resell them. But this kind of methods, selling 12 months membership giving only 7 days trial, is a stupid way to go to hell.

    This is a scam and not a very good one. I would never buy a 12 month code for just $10. Maybe 50% off and it would have to be from a legitimate source.

    You don't get charge back because you tell them to send payment by the friends and family option and not for goods and services. I do not believe they can charge you back on this one.

    Also, no one will paying me a visit because I have moved since signing up for paypal. If they show up blastin' well jokes on them. Besides, who's coming on a vacation from across the country to get $10 back???

    If you get this method to work and are comfortable with being dishonest, then I guess more power to you.
    I can understand the "if they fell for that, then they deserve to get conned" mentality, but karma has a funny way of coming back to bite you in the ass. Also, it perpetuates mistrust on the internet, which I'd rather not be part of. Not judging anyone, and not saying I'm better than anybody, just saying what I believe for myself.

    After a few complaints, Paypal might block your account not to mention all the refunds.

    Like it or not every single one of you (and me) are being stolen from in one way shape or form. Don't think so? Look at your next pay stub. I bet the IRS takes a nice commission that isn't optional. Also don't forget Obama care LOL

    Wow, so yea, I'm usually the first dirtbag blackhat ninja to say, "eff these guys - this is BLACKHAT forum" however, this isn't even close to black hat, this is just flat out thievery.

    Man, go put a blackhat twist on a CPA methid, you'll make legit bank man, this is just bullshit, someone should just shut this thread down. lessens our community.

    So you have never told a girl you loved her just to get to 3rd base? Everyone here is guilty of scamming in someway or another you just don't like to admit it. Bunch of pansies. Hypocrites really. At least I am real with who I am and not a HO Mon-Fri and a saint on Sunday.

    The thing you're forgetting is though that you're actively scamming people out of money. I can safely say that I've never done that, and I'll hedge my bets that the other posters in this thread would say the same about themselves.
    Although I'm guessing you would be cool if someone scammed you out of money then?
