    So I've unearthed a market hungry for a certain type of product on Clickbank. Fortunately, this market is high school girls who don't have credit cards and are too scared of technology to even attempt to make a Paypal account. So I set up a service where I buy the product for them using my CC for a small fee. I want to scale up by requesting a refund with every product I buy, as my fee is quite small but volume is high. If I start buying a ton of products from Clickbank and requesting a refund each time will I get noticed and banned? I know Paypal likes to ban people for requesting refunds, but I use a CC.

    What's the product? Buy it once, optionally get refund, get the girls to send you the money via Paypal or whatever, and then send them the PDF. No need to keep buying the same thing over and over, that's sure to raise some red flags.

    I have heard that if the same CC requests too many refunds it will get automatically declined by CB.

    i think theres a fee for refunds on new accounts its quite high so you could end up out of pocket on every sale,if i remember right its $18 per refund but you can easily check .

    Dude, this is black hat world, not steal hat world. People list their product to earn money and they'll have spent 100s of hours in developing that. If you don't need don't buy it. Just keep away from this game, cos even CB can do something really bad to you, if they find out. Work on something better, rather than playing a nasty game and land behind the bars in someway.

    Why cheat the vendor out of his hard earned money?
    Just buy it and let the vendor keep the money.

    He deserve it.

    Screwing over legitimate vendors is lame. It's people like you that fuck up the industry for everyone else. If the product sucks, by all means, get a refund. But buying a product, reselling it and then refunding is a complete dick move.

    Ummm lets not forget that right to the left is a downloads section, and I don't remember purchasing any one of those WSO's.
    So if the OP is so bad, so is any one who downloads from the download section.

    I don't use the downloads section, but there is a difference between buying a product and "sharing it" and buying a product, refunding and then reselling it.

    What the OP Describes is Just another case of a bunch of dumb a$$ people screwing hard working IMers all in the name of some petty cash. Its called buyer fraud and thanks to companies like PayPal it is flourishing. Also the downloads section is shared and not bought, sold and then refunded. Big difference.

    Posting about scammy (and straight up illegal) ideas like this would probably explain why you have negative 20 rep points.

    I'm not saying I agree with what he's doing, just saying It's not a BIG difference just a difference that shares a common ground.

    If it wasn't then there wouldn't be a do not share list of peoples product that don't want to be shared.

    I wouldn't want my product that I spent my time and money making, to then be shared for free. And I also wouldn't want somebody to sell my product, plus refund. Yea both are messed up, but one way is just more accepted.
