How to avoid going "RED"


DO NOT SIGN UP ON A FREEBIE SITE MORE THAN ONCE!
If you sign up on a particular freebie site more than once YOU WILL GO RED! Meaning if you sign up on zeropricetags under "trader1's" referral link, you can not sign up on zeropricetags under "trader3's" referral link. Most sites will give you an error if you try and do this, but in the cases where they don’t YOU WILL GO RED! Now if you sign up on zeropricetags for "trader1", you can sign up on gifts.zeropricetags for "trader2". I know this may be a little confusing. But if you are not sure of something just ask don't ever assume.

DO NOT USE FAKE INFORMATION WHEN REGISTERING ON A FREEBIE SITE OR SIGNING UP FOR OFFERS!
If you do not give valid name, email address, phone number, street address, credit card information etc, this is considered fraud and YOU WILL GO RED and, no P.O. boxes.

DO NOT FAIL PHONE VERIFICATION!
Some sites have adopted a phone verification system. This system was put in place to combat fraud. If you fail or try and cheat the phone verification YOU WILL GO RED. Phone verification is usually done after registering on a site but before completing offers. You are not allowed to use a VOIP (voice of IP) telephone number for verification. A land line phone number is the preferred for phone verification. If you only have a cell phone, you can use this, but you should put in a support ticket with the freebie site and inform them that your number being used is a cell number.

DO NOT SIGN UP FOR AN OFFER MORE THAN ONCE, EVEN THROUGH DIFFERENT FREEBIE SITES!
If you do this, it is considered offer fraud and YOU WILL GO RED! If you are not sure about an offer, and you think it may be the same offer you did on another site, play it safe and don’t sign up for the offer. Now I know some offers are confusing, so if you are not sure you can sign up for a particular offer because you did a similar offer on another site, your best bet would be to place a support ticket with the site and ask them.

DO NOT USE GIFT CARDS OR PREPAID DEBIT CARDS WHEN COMPLETING OFFERS!
The use of prepaid credit/debit cards when signing up for offers is prohibited by most affiliates. Some freebie sites even spell out that the use of prepaid credit/debit cards are a violation of the sites TOS (terms of service). If you do use prepaid credit/debit cards YOU COULD GO RED. This restriction was put into place due to massive offer fraud. Most of the time if you sign up for an offer trying to use a prepaid card your order will be denied or your card will be denied. In cases where you were able to sign up for an offer with a prepaid card, you will more than likely not receive credit, have credit revoked, or YOU WILL GO RED .

DO NOT CANCEL AN OFFER IMMEDIATELY AFTER SIGNING UP!
This goes along with the rule: only do offers that you are interested in. If the offer is for a 10 day trial membership, try out the membership if you do not care for it, then it is okay to cancel. If you cancel an offer the same day you signed up for it YOU WILL GO RED!

DO NOT ACCESS YOUR FREEBIE SITE ACCOUNTS FROM A PUBLIC INTERNET PORTAL!
If you log on to your freebie site account from an Internet cafe, school, or Public library etc, this will cause a duplicate IP address access issue on the freebie site and YOU WILL GO RED! Keep all your referral trading on one PC, from one location. Do not do freebie site referral trading from home and work.

DO NOT USE AOL TO ACCESS YOUR FREEBIE SITES!

This goes along with the one above. This will cause a duplicate IP address issue and YOU WILL GO RED! AOL uses a proxies to access the internet. There are other ISPs that use proxies and you will have the same result. Usually dial-up ISPs use proxies. If you are not sure call your ISP and find out. You can go to THIS LINK and see if a proxy is detected. I wouldn’t even use an AOL email address when registering on a freebie site. Open another free email account yahoo or hotmail, etc.

DO NOT TELL REFERRALS WHAT OFFERS TO DO!
This is considered walking a referral through and is a violation of all freebie sites T.O.S. If you are caught doing this YOU WILL GO RED and so will your referral. This is a little tougher to track but if you do it you will get caught.

DO NOT BE INCONSISTENT WITH YOUR INFORMATION WHEN REGISTERING ON A FREEBIE SITE!
If the information you provide when registering on a freebie site is not consistent with information gathered by the freebie site such as information entered when signing up for an offer, PayPal information, any ID verification sent to the site, etc. YOU MIGHT GO RED. I say might because this is up to the particular freebie site. Freebie sites need to protect themselves from fraud. A lot of freebie sites are requiring ID verification to allow you to work and order from the site. So if there is any mismatching information on your freebie site account this looks suspicious to the freebie site and they may put you on hold. Usually a support ticket or and email that clears up any suspicious information will get an account taken off of hold. But, it is no guarantee

All these above are the major ways you can have your freebie site accounts placed on hold. If a freebie site has suspicion that you are being fraudulent in any way YOU WILL GO RED! So read the freebie site’s Terms of Service and abide by them. If you do make a mistake, and you do have your account placed on hold, the first thing you should do is pay back the money for your trade if you were paid on green.


MESSAGE TO SCAMMERS:
You can make WAY more money doing this legitimately than you can by scamming honest green paying traders out of $20 here and there. If you are just doing it for kicks because you think its fun, well, I'd just like to say that I am in awe of your unprecedented level of stupidity, and karma can be a b1tch. You'll understand that first hand one day when the cops come knocking on your door, and don't think it'll never happen. Theft is theft, regardless of how you carry it out.

Good to see this bumped up. It's hard for me to believe the number of new traders who aren't aware of so many of these things.

This is an awesome post full of great information Shark! It should also be added that there is only 1 account allowed per household! This is a big deal when people who live in the same house want to do trading without talking to the other one! I have personally had 2 newbies fairly recently that didn't read this rule, and it caused the accounts to go on permanent hold for both traders! The other case was two room mates that neither knew the other was trading, but they both used the same IP. What a mess this can cause. Bottom line, know the rules and be sure you understand them completely before you jump in or you may end up doing offers that cost you and never getting paid for what you have done! It can be an expensive lesson to learn!

lol...in his defense, he does mention - twice - the concern of ips pertaining to red/holds but yeppers, a distinct line of it's own is always a good thing

Knowing the rules is critical, understanding them key to success - or not - and this is one great opportunity for sure, but also one that's next to impossible to start over with so...how you start is bound to demonstrate how you will proceed...and forward is always a good thing!
