    other than CPA that sells physical goods, basically everything else is just scam?

    there is fake giveaways - hoverboard, iphone, fake followers
    there is fake apps, e.g., textspy, free games
    that's all there is on ogads?

    and then there is penny auction, payday loan (i am doing you a great favor by sucking your blood dry), etc?
    and then there is the download/install that destroy people's computer.

    and if the offer is not a scam, the way to do it successfully is scam?

    so all the surveys done on the internet are seriously biased - because all the participants have common traits: greedy and stupid, and very likely bums.

    Nah man, most of the offers are legit. It's just you're on the wrong place...usually the fakes are on the incent networks.
    I'm running some legit cpa offers right now. A serious network doesnt allow incent traffic.

    Well with standard CPA offers on the low-end of the scale, i.e. email subs and the kinds of stuff you're talking about - prize redemption can be confusing and difficult to some people, but the most common platform for these types of offers costs quite a bit of money to rent and maintain. These are legitimate advertisers with legitimate offers ... and yes many of them blur the line between what is right and what is wrong ... just like all major auto makers, all major banks, all major energy suppliers. Do I really have to go on?

    If you don't like an offer or advertiser than don't push their offers. Many of the trial offers are quite legitimate with terms well explained, and even many CPA offers involve completely above board financial transactions, i.e. they're sales based. The industry itself is OK, but when you drill down to the publisher level, and see folks like ... well ... us, then you start to get into some of the down and dirty of it all. It's not the fault of this industry that people are so easily convinced to do things. It's the fault of inadequate worldwide educational failures. Nothing one can do except take the easy money on the table.

    Most folks around here are celebrating the points made in posts above, because it keeps the lights on. Sleep well at night by promoting only offers you can feel good about, and that you would even consider trying if you were in the shoes of your prospect. If you do this, you will never worry about having taken advantage of anyone. Business is business, so don't be afraid to profit, but definitely ease your conscience if you need.

    Yeah.. Pretty much it. And also all those weight loss offers, skin, supplements, health n beauty offers are scammy rebills. They offer a trial at a small price n make it extremely difficult to cancel the subscription. So, pretty much a scam.

    Yes but i really can't see how giving your email a CPA offer for example would do you any bad except getting spam/newsletter emails
