How can earn online website owners catch cheaters with multiple accounts

Postby fergus1234 » 01 Dec 2018, 12:00

Who cheats by making multiple accounts registered via different sim cards. VPN users are easy to catch but people who register with multiple sim cards are not. There are country where people don't need to register to buy a sim card. 1 person with 4 cellphones can make multiple accounts on one site and abuse the system of that site. It's harder to catch them over the VPN and Proxy users.

Others are easier to catch because of sharing 1 ip address but its not the case with mobile users and cyber cafe renters.

I don't think you can catch a cheater who uses mobile internet from multiple sim cards. People who use home internet as well as workplace internet cannot also be caught.

I am not a fan of Neobux but that might be the reason they don't allow mobile at certain point.

With modern means, and technologies, cheaters and scamsters also keep on devising new ways. It is hard to catch them. Catching them requires time and investment.

Detecting a duplicate account is really hard. I have a user generated content site. I use wordpress. I don't know how to catch a duplicate accounts on a wordpress site.

Some of these duplicate accounts are obvious though. They talk and write the same way.

It is impossible to catch all cheaters but there are many tactics that can be used to catch many "uneducated" cheaters. I am obviously not going to say how as we use some of these methods. Sometimes though, the cheaters worst enermy is themselves. Forgetting what device is which account therefore replying using the wrong account or logging into the wrong account on the wrong device or things like that. Usually site owner may have suspicions about users but can't prove anything however over time, watching the user closely will result in them messing up in some way and then you can jump on them.

I wonder how they can have a multiple account. I have only 4 sites that I visit but only 2 I visited every day and yet I can't have enough time to give each site. I have a tendency to stay in a site for one or two hours but after that I forgot again to log in. I can multi task online and offline works but it's different if both online in two sites. I end up favoring the other one. I still have to learn more how the online world works.

There are a number of ways which can be used to catch cheaters on line work. They range from IP addresses, browsers, cookies, computer detection, OS detection, windows version and etc. Trust me, if one changes an IP while keeping everything else including screen size and etc the same, that is a cheater. You can try using the above and see of they help.

But it might not be the right thing to do and some innocent person might suffer. One has to have the proof. An innocent can be declared guilty on basis of suspicion.

I have never realized that we could catch the cheater by checking their browser, OS, computer etc. I will have to find out more on this.
