    Hi guys,
    I am new here and have been thinking about a way to make huge money in CPA. Basically you have two people, you (a) and your friend (b). you both make some websites and put a ************** widget on there to unlock content. You then make similar websites- say 50 each, and again put your own ************** widget on them.

    You (a) receive a list of all of the sites from your friend (b) and your friend (b) receives a list of all of your (a) websites.

    You both then install a tor network addon for firefox which masks your IP (it changes every website you view essentially), enable private web browsing and then start going through each of the websites, filling out the surveys which award the most money. After each survey you complete you close your browser and run ccleaner to wipe the cookies, and then reopen the browser to load the next web page. Once you have got to the 50th web page you go back to the first, rinse and repeat.

    Both you and your partner do this. I know this is about as blackhat as it can get- but if it is hard for them to trace, is it worth trying? Have any of you tried it?

    Thanks,

    noxivus

    Plenty of people have tried to defraud CPA companies in the past. Does it work? Not really in the long run. The CPA company or companies you do this to will quickly become wise to your tactics or at the very least become extremely suspicious. The reason being is that your clicks/leads clearly don't convert. The time you have spent and the money you have earned will never be awarded because your accounts will get shut down.

    Ah yeah I see what you mean- when looking at the clicks and leads, ot would be blatently obvious something was fishy. I suppose maybe we could do 50/50 on clicks and leads, that way it wouldn't be so obvious, or maybe lower 20%. Would take more time but it would make it less obvious. Also having a constant stream of other users visiting the site would also mask it because there will be many more various IPs recorded making it harder to pinpoint the masked IP.

    Thanks for your reply.

    you could make a few houndred before getting caught. wich you eventually will.

    but seriously, put your effort n something sustainable, and your much better off in the long run.

    Take all that time and energy your going to waste on your "method" and concentrate on getting real traffic and making serious money. Even if it worked you wouldn't make as much as if you had traffic. Just my 2 cents:rolleyes:

    Seems like alot of work doing this for a measly 50 cents/conversion or so and taking a risk all said and done you are getting a few dollars.

    What I would do instead of trying to speed up the process of getting rich quick type of scheme.

    If you are interested in any cpa offers out there. Have your buddy throw up an ad of some sort and give him the conversion and the other way around.

    Do something like those $15 conversions to make it worth while.

    It may work for the first run, buy I really wouldn't suggest sticking with that strategy or else your CPA company will boot your ass :crying:

    Try some video marketing, or for faster results do targeted banner placement on a popular website.

    Quantcast has a list of the top milliion sites, and whats great is that they tell you which sites accept ads and which sites don't.

    Terrible, terrible idea!

    You even considering using Tor for something like this proves that you have absolutely no idea of what you are doing..

    This scheme would be a total waste of time and money and your accounts will be terminated sooner rather than later. Devote your energy to getting REAL targeted traffic to those offers of yours and you'll do nothing but prosper in the long run.

    It's possible but you'll get caught easily and you'll find out it's not worth the time.

    Thank you. Clearly the other 10 replies saying the exact same thing didn't do the trick.

    When I think black hat I think short cuts not cheating.. This will get you banned from a network for sure even if you did make some money at first you won't convert so you prob won't get paid. Instead of taking the time to do your friends so he will do your spend time driving traffic then you get your money and don't have to lower yourself to do it. There are so many good ways to make money with CPA everyone says check the forum for ways and yes there are some good ideas and alot of people willing to help but nobody wants to give their ideas away with a spoon it will cause saturation and they will lose money. I have found things that work best for me I never read in a forum maybe got some ideas but the ones that work the best arn't ones your going to read everyday. Instead of reading hoping someone will tell you word for word what to do sit down and think up something yourself then use the forums for idea to make yours better.. that't what I do anyway

    This is a lame lame lame idea. Do you really want to sit there everyday filling out 50 surveys? You will be caught and banned within days. Your forgetting about things like user-agent, screen resolution, o.s etc. Your also forgetting tor is painfully fucking slow at times, and you would have to keep track of every single ip you submit from to prevent submitted to it again. Plus what details are you going to fill in the surveys with?
