Re: How can earn online website owners catch cheaters with multiple accounts

Dynamic Ip address change over time. So it's impossible to catch cheaters. Only Static IP users can be caught. The mobile hotspot, internet cafe all comes under dynamic IP's.

A tough job for admins, they have to keep an eagle eye to check users ip adresses and such.. But there is the other side to it.. some newbie gets thrown out because he/she is blundering in ignorance.

Even mobile users can get scot-free as having multiple SIM/mobile is not a problem in most countries. In India a SIM is available for free and its running cost is also almost free @$2 p/m for 2GB or more data per day and unlimited voice call to any inland network.

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.

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.

When we go online, that is part of the information which sites collect from us. If you can set up real traps using either, you can be able to know accounts which are cheaters. I once used that same info to track multiple account holders on my site. Wordfence if you are using WordPress is one way.

Wow sometimes you cannot trust who are you talking with. I have no idea I could be talking to a single person instead of 4. I never noticed but a single person try covering up by participating here. I guess the only way they can get away from it is the alternicks have different interests and personalities. All of those 4 personas complain about having unverified Paypal and bumps each other's article.

I wonder if the person will be given a second chance because a multi-accounter was given a 2nd chance before.

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.


And you have made some quick work of it. I guess it is impossible to act smart at all times. Some time, some day the guard comes down and you trap them in their act. Never gave this thing a thought before, maybe because I have never needed to do that.
Its good to be aware of these things.

and the Irony that 4 of those accounts replied on this discussion that must be the reason those accounts are saying cheaters are hard to get caught because this cheater had been doing it for a long time.. :lol:

I remember you mentioned about it before, but I really don't understand much about it. The people who create multiple accounts must be very serious with their stuff and have plenty of time.

Well with regularly getting 150 fc from cheating the articles via multiple accounts, that person must have made lots of cash until she get caught.

I agree, admin should something about the unfair bumping and earnings of those accounts. I notice something was amiss, but I didn't have the time to take a proper look at it.
You will find the account from Nepal being banned on every article submission site. I have watched this game for ten years now.

Those accounts are also the reason I rarely visit general discussions because they love bumping super old threads. Now they are gone, things improved.
