    Does AC checks regularly which proxies were used when logging into AC?
    I'm just wondering whether there might be problems when I use a proxy that is located in NY for registering at AC (and make my fake person a NY resident) and later on I login with a proxy that is located in Miami or somewhere else in the US. Or am I safe as long as it is a US proxy? Thanks for your help in advance.

    While I don't know about them in detail, usually this is easy to verify.

    AC, paypal, affiliate managers etc, they all verify identities. If they make a fault they risk to lose money.
    So these type of websites/service are usually well monitored for possible fraud which includes checking of IPs.

    If you use two proxies (NY and Miami) I'd say this is not a problem because many real people travel between family and home or have multiple living places.
    If you use 10 different ones you probably risk it.

    Best is to keep the same IP or use the same ISP for an account.

    I see, thanks for your answer. Do you think it would be a problem to make several AC accounts with IPs located in the same city were the IP basically looks the same and only the last numer is different each time? E.g. 94.23.115.147, 94.23.115.148, 94.23.115.149...

    ^^ lol if you don't even know what AC stands for, I'm not sure why you would say no don't do that?

    @ john - Using non sequential proxies will be "safer" because it's harder for them to make the connection with just a "glance". The bottom line is, whether using sequential or non sequential they can and will make a connection if they dig deeply enough. It all depends on that particular staff member and how suspicious they are of the account in question.

    The whole point with working AC and multiple accounts is understanding that no matter how safe you play it they can and will ban your accounts if given a reason to dig into them. if you're giving them quality content, keeping your rejections at a reasonable level, and keep your accounts in good standing they'll have no reason to dig deeper.

    I've had a number of accounts banned by testing the waters with AC, (ie pushing the limits) so the bottom line is that you want to always consider your accounts as disposable, and then realize that you can always just start another account/s and keep on submitting for upfront pay.

    redtide: thanks for your answer, helped a lot! okay, then i will just use those 2 different us proxies i have (about 5 in each city but sequential) to manage my 2 accounts that i have right now and try to stay under the radar :)
    i guess its the best to buy a private us proxy for each account...
    btw...what did you do when you "pushed the limits"? :D
