    I am starting work for a large company for sales with pretty good commissions. Based on the success of a previous company name promo code site, I want to set up a site with companyname-cityname.com, however this wouldn't be approved by the company, I'd use anonymous hosting and domain. I have a lower price than can be otherwise found online. Now they wouln't prove that the site is mine and referrals are accepted. I want to set up forms for them to fill out their info and I would contact them.


    Now they could follow the money trail but wouldn't be able to prove the site is mine and referrals are encouraged I'd hope if they saw the site they would send a letter to the site's email instead of perhaps "pretending" to be a customer and filling out info to found out who I am, in which case I'd just shut down the site.


    Since referrals are encouraged couldn't I just say a friend told me he could get me lots of customers and pass them on to me? I could even have a prepaid # on the site for them to call, and then be "referred" to me. How strong is a money trail when you can say someone else wrote your info on a site they can't prove you own? etc etc.

    I would say a money trail is pretty strong evidence. A forensic accountant will for sure be able to link your refers to the site if they gain access to your files. That said, forms are very easy to create google for a tutorial or you could use a squeeze page and edit it.

    Now an escalated situation like that is if someone did something sneaky and filled out the forms to try to get me or someone I'd hire to contact them, instead of just emailing the domain, it's sort of like a catch 22. Thats my dilemma I've been brainstorming I'm even willing to pay if someone can find a good solution lol
