The response to our contest fraud prevention has been great. But we didn’t want to stop at IP banning and Verification emails.
We have now released an update to fraud prevention that allows you to also exclude emails from contests that are known to be bad.
Under the campaign fraud settings you’ll now this this:
If an email address entered into your contest falls into one of these categories…
- It will not count as a referral in contests.
- If will not be included in future emails.
- If will be marked as such in the lead card.
- No one will get credit for referring the bad email address.
This means that, for example, if someone enters a lot of fake email addresses (that bounce) they will not get any credit for them.
Note that it can take a few hours to confirm that an email address has bounced so we recommend waiting until a few hours after a contest has officially ended in order to award the winners.
Let us know if you have any questions or feedback on this update via email@example.com.
