13 Mar Click Fraud and Spamming
This is a type of spam, which is growing in popularity today. Now that many people are losing sleep over the rise of spam, here’s some info on click fraud.
Spam is something that a lot of Internet users are weary of. Although many of them won’t admit it, many users hate spam more than they like the viruses and spyware that so many of us face on a daily basis. Many webmasters feel that they are being cheated by email scams. In order to make sure that your site remains secure, be sure to read on.
Spam comes in many forms. Some are legitimate but in others it’s not. There are plenty of people out there who just don’t care whether they’re getting ripped off or not. Some people also call themselves “webmasters” but in reality they are not. They’re only good at what they do and you need to be careful.
Not all email scams are spam. With this method of spam, you’re not doing anything illegal. You may be giving them a product for a price, but it’s still a scam.
A lot of this type of scam is being perpetrated by a reputable webmaster. But, sometimes the scam artist doesn’t go about it the right way.
Sometimes a scam artist gets someone to do some work for them. For example, a webmaster might advertise a free product or provide a service that can’t be offered without money. The scam artist would then give out the contact information for you to find out more information.
If you are given this kind of thing, you need to know the scam artist. You can find all kinds of information about them. In fact, they might even use Google AdSense or some other affiliate marketing scheme so that you have no choice but to buy the product or service that you were supposed to be introduced to.
Most scam artists want you to buy their product. You might try to resist, but eventually you’ll give in. It’s like giving your credit card number to a serial killer, then having him rob you blind and leave you in a ditch.
Report all of these things to your email or spam reporting service. They will probably allow you to blacklist the person or company, depending on the type of service that you have.
Now, I’d like to talk about how a lot of Internet users get taken advantage of. Because many of them cannot avoid it, this post is going to deal with click fraud, as well as spamming.
Now, if you do fall victim to a major spammer, don’t panic. Just think about your situation. Would you rather have your credit card number or your computer?
In any case, if you have had problems with spam or if you feel that a certain person is working hard to cause problems for you, be careful and protect yourself against the “click fraud”. Just be smart. You can’t afford to get taken down by some con artist that knows how to work around our spam filtering software.
