    First thread :)

    This is a rework of another thread I can't seem to find for the life of me. So I apologize, but this is a less BlackHat twist.

    The essential method is using Cragislist and scrapping resume emails (sending 2500 emails below as we speak). Then email posing as a article writing company. Tell the person your hiring article writers and would like a sample article for qualification. If they are interested they will give you an article. Give them specific niches from AC and ask for 500 words + and never before published.

    Now you may be thinking that's wrong to steal someones work. Well this is BHW and there are numerous worse methods. But a way to save your ass is put terms and conditions at the bottom of your email. Like this;

    "Terms & Conditions: This email and any attachments to it may be confidential and are intended solely for the use of the individual to whom it is addressed. Any views or opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of Adam Norris. If you are not the intended recipient of this email, you must neither take any action based upon its contents, nor copy or show it to anyone. Please contact the sender if you believe you have received this email in error.When submitting an article we receive full copyrights and we reserved the right to reproduce and publish; even if position is not offered. "

    Seems safe. But I hope it will be fine legally.... and this would require more legal stuff down the road if you go big with this.

    Anyways here is a sample of what I am sending people;

    "

    Hello,

    On behalf of [company name], we have been searching for job seekers like you on Craigslist! Who are we? [company name] is a new company and is a marketplace for unique and exclusive written articles for our clients. We are a great way to earn money by typing from home. You can make up to $5-$10 per article. You don't have to be a professional writer to complete articles, however, the better you write, the more you can earn. It is a great way to earn money by writing articles on nearly anything from home! After reviewing your resume, we believe you are well on your way to becoming a writer within our telecommute network. Please follow directions below for the qualification process if you are interested.

    Step One:
    Within three business days, please reply to this email with a unique 500-550 word article. This article is preferred to be typed in Microsoft Word, but not required. This article needs to be professional and never before publicized, and most importantly wrote by you. Any article we receive with any form of plagiarism with be disqualified.

    Please choose a general niche below;

    - Business
    - Health
    - Society
    - Sports
    - Technology
    - Television
    - Travel
    - Video Games
    - Weddings


    Step Two
    : Send the article as a reply to this email with this format Niche_Title.doc. For example if I wrote an article about Swine Flu my article filename should be ?Health_Effects of Swine Flu.doc?. Our Publisher Qualification Team will review the article and contact you via email if you qualify for the position!

    Thanks!
    Adam Norris
    Publisher Qualification Manager
    [company name]
    Email: (your email here)
    Time Zone: Pacific



    Terms & Conditions: This email and any attachments to it may be confidential and are intended solely for the use of the individual to whom it is addressed. Any views or opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of Adam Norris. If you are not the intended recipient of this email, you must neither take any action based upon its contents, nor copy or show it to anyone. Please contact the sender if you believe you have received this email in error.When submitting an article we receive full copyrights and we reserved the right to reproduce and publish; even if position is not offered.







    So, they send you a article you post on AC make $2 to $4 per article. Lets say you get 50 people to send you article a day (This is a VERY small amount and hundreds can be achieved) That's $100-200 and you didn't even write the articles!!


    So...Is my ass covered legally for taking someones content?

    Who knows, but your gonna get flamed probably, just like all the other posts about this.

    It is a pretty terrible method, but really the problem for me lies in the fact that it brings more variables into play.
    Posting on craigslist
    You can only scam a few articles tops out of most people
    They might complain
    yada yada yada
    god might strike you dead
    yada yada yada

    lol this is an exact rip of something that was shared in the money making subforum a few weeks ago. That thread from a few weeks ago was just a reworked version of a number of other threads started that consisted of the same basic info. Each time they've been flamed.

    Here's just a few reasons why this is a waste of BHW server space IMO:

    1) Exact Rip of something shared recently including the exact same title

    2) Highly unethical to directly steal people's work. BH is BH, but stealing is something totally different.

    3) Like Elvis pointed out, it's adding a lot of extra steps and drama by adding CL methods to AC

    4) Not a longterm solution to working AC at all

    5) AC articles need certain things in place in order to not only be accepted, but to bring decent upfront offers. These "samples" aren't going to cut the mustard

    6) AC's reviewers aren't complete idiots (only partial idiots), if you're consistently sending them hundreds of different writing styles to your accounts it's a recipe for the banhammer.

    6) Last but not least, karma is a bitch ;)

    I usually appreciate all shares here at BHW, but an exact rip of an already crappy method is kind of pitiful IMHO

    Here's is the first salvo aimed at you, my dear OP. Whatever you do, don't cheat the poor to earn your online dollars. (Well, I consider those poor writers "POOR"). Even if this is BHW, this isn't a f**king place to cheat the poor. There are plenty of other methods to earn $$$ so at least don't bother to write if you can't find better earning modes.

    You may probably get your ass covered by those lousy T&Cs, because you'll need them the most when you're made to really run...

    I usually give a smiley even if I disagree with someone, but this thread doesn't deserve one.

    Exactly!
    Karma is a bitch really... :rolleyes:

    Just one question, if I have now bad karma and did nothing wrong, does that mean that I need to do something very wrong to make my karma better? :rolleyes:

    it looks good as a theory but have you been using it ??????,because ac really becoming difficult article should highly tageted dense in keywords ....to be accepted and i don't thick you will even receive 4 dollars only 2 to 3 unless your clout level is higher so in the end 50 article a day maybe only a few will make it .

    lol yeah, this thread got kind of ugly. One good thing that came from it is seeing that everyone universally feels that stealing work from writers goes beyond BH.

    At least paying a dollar is much better than just taking other people's work.

    Also would like to let everyone know that AC writers do respond to such CL ads as well as GAF ads. I read it on a forum owned by one of them.

    They do this to find out who you are and get your account banned for plagiarism.

    I look at that this way, if I offer you $1 to do something for me, and you do it, that is a great deal. You got the money I got the job done. Everyone is happy.

    LOL, and then we are stupid?! :eek:
    They spend their time to write for us. We get banned, we create other account for free. They spend their time on writing!
    OK, we will not earn, they will not get paid for that articles from our side :D

    Very true!

    I was going to say this as well...You could have a freaking ton of people writing articles for you for $1 each. =)

    EDIT:

    In fact this post gave me an idea to put a great spin on this...I'll let you know where it ends up going.

    Great method, I'm surprised at the flame fest. This is the essence of blackhat. I'm wondering what other blackhatters are doing that's so beautifully legit???

    Man I must be a real dick because I thought it was a good method. I figure the unemployed are getting payed off of my taxes while I am at work all day so it would be the least they could do.

    Uhh...no they aren't :p NV and a few other states have Unemployment Insurance which is paid for my the employer. Other states are basically pulling from Federal which is making their own cash to fund this type of stuff
