    IP checking is one way although this can be overcome quickly if they know what they are doing.

    Look at where the payments are going - If your payout is by paypal then many people only have one paypal address for payments, easy to spot.

    If it's physical products look for street addresses.

    Same phone numbers, that type of thing.

    Not an easy thing to spot to be honest.

    You have an incentivized website? It appears to be an interesting business model- I'm presuming it's similar to eBates and Big Crumbs?

    Not yet....planning to have one but so far I've heard horror stories about people who have incent sites for CPA, being cheated by his users, and finally he get banned by the CPA network for fraudulent sign-up.....I just want to play safe. So far just got GPT scripts for that...don't know the anti-cheat security yet

      You can consider implementing the phone number verification system from TeleSign. How this works is that when users enter their telephone number on a website, they're sent a one-time verification code that they need to enter on the website again to get verified. It's an effective way to ensure that your customer is a real person and also prevent bulk and spam registrations.
