    So how is this? Can users track you down? Let's say if they spend a few dollars to complete your survey, but figure out the content is fake.

    if they do a mobile offer and not get what they want they probably compain to they cell provider and get that charge reverse which will get your lead reversed aswell. too many of those might cause you trouble.

    Most PPD Survey sites use fake files. I've seen it first hand on the Share Cash forums. They don't care if a user paid money with a mobile submit or paid for a premium account.

    I just corrupt my rar file =/ so even if they complain they can't say it wasn't legit.

    im not sure the correct way, but just grab a non rar file and change the file extension to .rar that way it will never open.

    You certainly can be tracked for doing almost anything online if you're not careful.

    Will one user track you?

    Well, maybe if he's a lawyer at bobloblaw, and they're contracted out for fighting the pirating of the whatever it is you're making people think they're downloading.

    But, what's more likely to happen is they'll have the site take it down, and you'll lose lead commissions. The same thing may happen if a user files a chargeback.

    I can only imagine what would happen to you if you did it to someone who was a member of the mafia, a gang, or a drug cartel member. Those hackers aren't always fun to deal with either.

    Usually it's just a refund, and you don't know why. With paypal, you know when it's a bank chargeback, for example.

    If you do it like that there are ways to restore. This is not what you want.

    The correct way is to generate a file of the desired size, encrypt that file and then change the extension.


    Hope this helps. :)
