The scammers pimping this stuff are surely the only ones making any money - and I've yet to see any proof, or any attempt to offer proof (verified or not), that a single dollar has been made this way.
If you fall for this, it tells me you're desperate and the last thing you need to do is to be giving your money away and thinking this is how IM is done.
It isn't a situation where you might make so much money that there's a risk-reward evaluation.
This is not an area you want to be fooling around with. From just one company upset with you, or one attorney, you're risking:
- Your access account
- Your affiliate account
- Your web hosting account
- Your domain registration
- A lawsuit
- Embarrassing explanations to family and friends
I've seen certain companies seek to teach someone a lesson, and just one lawsuit will wipe you out. The more you have, the more you risk to lose.
There are a zillion ways to make money online. The Warrior Forum is overflowing with them. You don't have to wallow in the gutter using risky tactics like this.
There are also easy ways to use copyrighted material for proper advantage without so exposing yourself. Get an affiliate account with Amazon and/or poster merchants. Your picture, perhaps displayed on your website by Amazon or a poster storefront, and not actually copied by you, will of course link back to the merchant with your affiliate link. And, you're now an authorized contractor (affiliate) for the seller.
Then, just include whatever else you want on your website. Perhaps something to entice clicks to the CPA offer you really want to promote, so that very few will click on the picture.
One final thought: if you see a WSO check out the seller. If they have a lot of WSOs, but no websites selling their products to the public, it probably means their "WSOs" are not Warrior Special Offers at all. They may be using the forum to make a quick buck. More like, Warrior Gullible Offers.
