I got this information from 2 friends that do this on the side.
I didn�t join in the practice b/c it�s not my style.
Ok. People who participate in this fraud go to a website and open up an account similar to a Pay Pal site.
Once you have established an account and register, you then start to receive email instructions.
These instructions are very specific for what sites to visit, and for how long.
One must visit approx 6-14 sites a day.
If you miss a day, or you don�t stay on for the specified duration, you don�t get paid.
Then every 2 weeks $4000 - $6000 is deposited into your account and the process is then repeated.
Now I haven�t asked him about this in a month or so, but up to that point, he had done this 3 times, and he turned it over to his teenage son.
I don�t know anymore than this b/c I deleted his email with the excel spreadsheet which had all of the specific instructions for getting started.
I assume that the money comes from competitor�s companies in an attempt to drain a competitor�s advertising fund.
I might be missing a lot of detail here b/c I really didn�t look into it very far. But the practice is wide spread, and it is very real.
To avoid being caught by screeners, there appear to be many people doing this at low volume, as apposed to a few people, or computers doing it at high volume.
I�m surprised that no one else has brought this up on this board yet. When this gets investigated, and it will�. It will be a big deal.
I posted about click fraud all weekend and geniuses like plebesaurus and pumpler and gin and rdbut and daffy and montez, etc etc etc said it's a "dead issue"...
So what's holding this dog down?
