We just want to stress that traders need to give Correct information, and always do offers from one computer.
YOU need to do offers from your home computer and use your correct home information and phone. (This does not mean "hey I had my laptop I did use my own laptop but I used it at school, work, a bar, a hotel, etc...) When you use your laptop anywhere else but at home your "IP" changes and causes problems
. It does not matter that you are "just logging in to check your account and not doing offers." This rule applies always.
Those using wireless internet cards, and cellphone internet! Please be aware that you most likely will come up with
IP matches and your IP could be coming from a totally different STATE when using this type of internet connection!
Yes it is the time of NEW ways to "Connect" but please understand when you use these types of connections you run
the risk of your offers not crediting or being revoked by the offers. You are also running the risk of being held or
banned on IFW sites if your ip comes in from another state. Why? Because you become too high risk

add satellite internet to the list of things to watch out for. but we mostly see verizon wireless, tmobile, alltell, etc causing the most problems. both ip matches and non-crediting of offers.

What about if you have more then one computer at home. I have 3 all going through the same router. Will that cause problems if I used two different pc's. I have only used one since I have started but its in need of upgrading. So it will be down for a couple days.
and just a heads up, since bad offers were mentioned. I did the Mozy Backup offer, it has now charged me the trial fee $4.95 three times. They did not send a confirmation email, and when asked if they could resend it they said they couldnt. I actually wanted to keep this since I think its great, but the support is F-

Your router obtains the IP, and then distributes to all your computers in your house. So you can definitely use any one of the computers in your house that are attached to a single router. Just make sure you don't allow anyone else from outside your household (neighbor/friend/etc) to use your router to complete offers. That will create issues. Also roommates would be off limits. Remember these offers are per HOUSEHOLD, and not per person. Once a member of your household completes an offer, that's all the manufacturer will allow in terms of free or discounted trials for that household...period.
We have been getting traders from offices and public computers, motels and even bars/restaurants more and more and this needs to stop for the betterment of the incentive industry. You need to understand that the IFW site is not the only one that checks your information. The "Offers" also do their own fraud prevention and track "IP's" too. Although we may request ID and such in these situations the possibility of the offers revoking your credits for this type of thing is VERY HIGH.
We have seen a high rise in people using "Prepaid Cards"! This is one of the main reasons for offers not
crediting or being revoked. DO NOT USE THEM! In fact many offers do not allow "Debit Cards" now. When doing
offers make sure you read all their "Terms Of Trial" so you know this! This can cause your offer to not credit or
to be revoked too.
As I stated before, many offers are doing their own anti-fraud checking. This usually includes "Calling you to Verify".
If you state you did not do the offer, cancel when they call, or do not answer your phone the offers will consider you
a "Fraudulent Lead". Please answer your phone and verify your offers.
Early Cancel and not using an offers service is also considered a "Fraudulent Lead" and causes revokes. Always
try out the offer you do. If it's an internet based offer you need to log in and actually use the service! You can not
just do a trial and never log in just because it "Credited"! Because the offers KNOW when you login and where from!
If you do not do this you run the risk of your offer being revoked. Even though the trials say "Cancel anytime"
that does not mean so in the "Incent Industry". You need to choose offers
you are really interested in and give them a good TRY please.
It has come to a point that the IFW sites are not going to be able to be so lenient
anymore in these situations. SoPLEASE make sure you keep to all the rules of freebie trading.
Thank you GRF Lori for contributing to this.
