Almost 4 year im doing CPA, PPI,CPI.. etc. What i realise that 95 % (or even more) of CPA offers are pure scam. Excluding real product where people actually get what they want (software sell), starting with Pin Submits,Fake Free Trials, even Sweepstakes, everything is mostly the scam.Pin submits and credit card submits for example are pure money stealing. How i grow older i started feeling guilty conscience. Anyone feel similar way?

Pin Submit (FR) = They lose 20$ per week getting nothing
CC Submit = They get peanut for a lot of money
Sweeptakes, Vouchers, Email Zip Submits = After you enter email and sh*tload of info, they start spaming you with CC Submit offers, no one ever won anything
CPI,PPI = usually virus\scam app which require you to pay money in order to use

I had the same thoughts few days ago. I agree that huge majority of these offers is crap. I would never complete them to be honest.

As you would never pay for porn.. But there are more than enough guys in the world that do..

You will always have people that fall for these sort things.

@OP, many things in the CPA world could be a scam, but it all depends on how you do it.
You can also use incentivized offers, you give them free content/videos/pics when they sign up to something.

Some CPA offers can really help someone when you show them a website/offer that can help them out..

But f*cking over teenagers for fake followers or cheats is very misleading..
Most people that earn with this earn like $5-10 per day with this. Costs are mostly more expensive than earnings..

No one would complete these offers, but people are scammed. They thought they will get something in return (for example some gaming hack), but they get nothing, and they subscribe for $20+ per week! Sometimes i wonder how i would feel if someonestole 20 bucks from me..

Well, the teens learn some life lessons perhaps? That only cheese in a mouse trap is free. It is better that they learn from installing a misleading app, rather than "investing" $5000 in some MLM/Pyramid schemes are now banned from CPA Elites. scheme when they are 25 or some other crap like that. Everyone has to go through the process of realizing that life is not what it seems to be when you are 13.

First of all, most teenagers don't even have/use a credit card. Second of all, you guys should come back to earth. Did you ever earn in CPA? CC offers, really? You must be a millionaire if all your conversions are trials for $20 a week. The reality is - most CPA offers are some lame app installs that the person can uninstall later. Nobody steals anything from anyone. It's all with their permission and they do it willingly and hopefully they can learn from their mistakes.

OP, if you feel guilty then don't do it?! Stop, leave CPA and have a peace of mind. Why complain and stay? If you want the world to be a better place, then open a well-designed and optimized online shop with some useful items that people will actually enjoy and you'll still make profit while doing good! Moreover, find a charity organization or two and send them 10% of all of your profits. You might actually help someone in need if you pick the honest charities and not the scam ones. It's all talk, guys. Words mean nothing in this world. If you want to do something - do it. Actions speak better than words.

I actually done this, with "ebay" from my country.Got my online shop, selling real things.Stopped doing CPA because i felt guilty and dont wanna end in hell.
Most of content lockers now contain either CC or PIN offer, CC mostly for french now. But nevermind, just wanted to hear what people think...

wintertitan You are right about that though, I also thought it's the most harmless way for them to understand that this is BS. As it does not cost them a thing to download an app, just a couple of minutes of time.

Most of these kids don't have access to a credit card, they may be able to ask/get it from their parents though, but that is not very likely.

your mobile phone company advertising $4.99 whereas you'll end up paying $19.99 per month is EXACTLY the same.
This is called MARKETING and it's pretty common practice these days...
