    Not sure if it matters which CPA company, but let's say with CPA Le*d.

    Can I run into trouble for this?

    Example:

    I have a landing page where I'm offering a free item to visitors (all they had to do is enter their email and follow the shipping procedure).

    All of a sudden, the Gateway comes up, and they have to fill out a survey to continue. Upon filling it out, they do not get the free item as promised.

    I would use FREE surveys (none of the ones that incur costs to their phone).

    Bump.

    Anybody? I really want to know, so I can either start removing members from the group I created (which is using this method), or not.

    Yeah man, CPAL3ad does not allow you to block fake content..their terms require you to actually deliver what you promised. Cloak your traffic and use BHCB or WP Gaurdian instead..

    fake content will have the FTC all over your ass. Or worse...the networks won't pay you.

    There is SOOOO much crap out there that you can post up and give away.
    there is no need to deceive your visitor.

    Be smart, treat them well and get their email address. That way you can upsell them on other stuff and have them come back AGAIN to fill out more offers.

    Does this mean that if I have a movie trailer site blocked by CPA Lead content gataway my account may be banned because I promised the full movies for visitors , not only trailers?

    It's TOS violation. They catch you you are gone. There are blackhat content gateways that give you greater control of the offers. Look for them on BHW. And you should also hide/mask the referrer.

    I'm not a big fan of cpa l*ead. But it's fine for white hat stuff.

    What if I am giving links to full movies (but not have movies on my site) so my visitors can go to the site that has full movies after they fill out survey, am I violating TOS in that case?

    he let it slide and ultimately banned him :D when he had like $50k payout to receive. but i can tell you that if that guy really got banned was because all the jealous ppl discovered his sites and started complainting in their chatbox.

    i would say, go for it man, just lay low in that chatbox, and figure out a way of hiding your publisher ID ;) if you need help with something just ask.

    Good point.

    It's like going to the cops and saying "That man stole my crack cocaine - arrest him!!"

    Sorta...

    I wonder if the FTC would get their hands on me in Australia? I assume they'd notify the authorities here and they'd get me.

    I would say pass them on to a free download of some plr product, then with the plr product a review for a related clickbank product or two. Say some plr articles related to your website, then a review of some article rewriter and submitter software. Then you are actually giving something, and you stand to make more money. Just a thought.

    You'll get better pay and better conversion rates with your own content blocker.

    Just make sure you fake or blank the referrer
