    Good idea or no?
    Some of the Click-per-lead's are 10$. I could get on to 10 + Proxies and sign up EASILY in 1 hour with fake information.
    Which = 100$ an hour + normal traffic.

    I don't see how it could be traceable for the CPA Networks to crack down on it - because the affiliate is the one who would have the unique IP Address's, and not catch on unless they throughly investigated it.
    100% Black Hat though. Hahaha!

    You won't get paid when nothing converts for the merchant, don't waste your time. Merchants aren't in the business of giving away money.

    The key to a long term relationship is that everyone in the equation makes money, affiliate, network & merchant. :)

    Also ask yourself, how fast you'll destroy those 10 proxies by using them repeatedly in that manner... and that cost is much likely greater than 10 frauded cpa actions.
    Fraud and BHat are not the same thing.

    what else can u do with 10 proxies and one hour?
    Exactly what Mr. E said... 'don't waste your time' => spend your time getting real / targeted traffic...

    Just when you think something is not traceable, that's when u should tell yourself, okay, I need to do a lot more research! Good luck!

    CPA networks are dumb but they are not that dumb...play it safe and smart or else they might ban you. Get to know your AM call him/her randomly to say whats up and talk about some bullshit...like MrE said build a relationship

    That is the oldest and dumbest trick in the book. If it worked everyone on BHW would be ballas and noone would be asking for help lol. Good luck getting banned from CPA networks. Why don't you just find a method on here that works and just branch from it.

    Proxies are more identifiable than you think, even if they show up on those test sites as "anonymous" or "highly secure."

    There are quite a few specialized security applications out there that will detect you're using a fake IP and there's no doubt CPA networks are using them for protection
