What method is this? Can you tell what this guy is doing?

    In short, I got a friend request on one of my Facebook accounts. I noticed that the other account is fake, and posting spam links. Anyway, I went ahead and tested the links just to figure out what the guy is doing. However, the method seems a bit odd to me. I'd like your opinion on this.

    So, that's how the account looks (his):

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    As you can see, he's posting these Tumblr links with every profile pictures. I'm not promoting these links, test them at your own discretion. I did so using a VPS. To save you the hassle, here are some screenshots from the Tumblr links:

    When you go on the Tumblr link, you'll find this image (it's not real reCaptcha), and it redirects to something like this:
    [​IMG]
    Another example:
    [​IMG]

    As you can see, they're all related to cars. It's safe to assume that this guy is going after a niche, but I don't really know what benefit he's getting out of all of this. Is he increasing the PA of these Web 2.0's in some way doing this?

    What do you guys think?
    Is there something to pursue here?

    ogads recaptcha locker. You are redirected to that page because there is no offer for PC in your country. Try again with mobile phone.

    Many possibilities..

    1. Not sure if he is making money, it could be a browser exploit to install something on your computer ? and then later do something ?
    2. As previously said, any CPA offer that might not be available in your country.
    3. Clickjacking - when you are clicking on something and infact there is something else behind the captcha like Adsense Ad ?
    4. You see, there is a missing image. So most probably he is cookie stuffing, I used to do it back in old days.
    5. There is a hidden iFrame on the page that open anything for him and serves the purpose, like increasing views, redirecting links etc

    PS: I will check the links when I reach home.

    You could not completely see where the link goes by using VPN

    Cool, looks like you're solving the an initial google recpatcha for them while also possibly getting 'hacked'. Considering the URL, they get one free tumblr account, in case they get banned from the platform, once you're infected, your fail rate regarding googles recaptcha will most likely increase. It could be very technical and intricate on their side and, perhaps their software is very intelligent. :cool:

    The links redirect me to a site with a nude girl's gif and a continue button in the middle.

    As someone already said, you must've been redirected to that text coz you are not from the country where that offer works.
