FB Dollars – Scam or $500/mo Without Doing Anything? [Review]
FB Dollars claims to pay people up to $500 a month for literally doing nothing. All you have to do is allow them to “rent” out your Facebook ads account, which you probably are not using anyhow, and that is that.
But can you actually make money doing this?
After all, when it comes to ways of making money online, you have to be very cautious with what you get involved with. They can say whatever they want to, but you have to keep in mind that there are plenty of scams out there.
Is FB Dollars just another scam like Facebook on Fire that uses the Facebook name to try to come across as being legitimate?
Well… Let me just say this… It isn’t something I’m going to be recommending to my readers and you will see why…
FB Dollars Review

- Recommended?: No and for good reason
So the whole concept sounds pretty darn simple. Besides filling out a form at the very beginning to give FB Dollars access to your Facebook ads account, there isn’t anything else to do… You supposedly can than just sit back and collect $500 a month… So you are told.
But as the saying goes… If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.
I’m guessing that you probably thought this sounded a little bit too good to be true, which is the reason you decided to do a little extra research and stumbled across my review right here. And it’s a good thing you did!
How It Works
So as mentioned, this is all about them “renting” your Facebook ads account. That is all they want.
Most people don’t even know that they have an ads account, but everyone dies. Everyone who has a Facebook account also has a Facebook ads account that is attached to it. You might never use it, and you might not know that even exists, but is there in case one day you would want to use it.
With a Facebook ads account you can run targeted ads on the Facebook platform along with on other platforms inside the advertising network.
But you may be wondering… Why the heck to they want your ads account?
Seems a bit weird doesn’t not?
I mean… Why don’t they just use their own ads accounts if everyone has them?
Well… I have come across this sort of thing before and I know what is going on here for the most part.
You see, Facebook is extremely strict when it comes to running ads. I know because I have experience doing so. If you do something that they don’t like they will disable your account and is incredibly difficult getting your account re-enabled.
My guess is that this place that is looking to rent ads accounts is probably doing some advertising that is “not so Facebook friendly”. Maybe they are looking to advertise for some sort of scam “make money online” program or something of that nature. This would probably be my guess, but it is just a gas and definitely not something I know for sure.
The other scam I reviewed that was similar in the past was called Social Xchange… and it has since been shut down as I could have guessed.
The requirements for you to be able to make $500 a month renting out your ads account include…
- Must have at least 100 friends on FB
- The FB account must be yours
- You need to be at least 21 years old
- The account must be at least 1 year old
- Your Facebook ad account must be untouched
The reason they want you to have an account that is seasoned, genuine, and active with a decent amount of friends is because Facebook is much more likely to disable a brand-new account over an old one.
Do I Trust This Place?
The bottom line here is that I definitely do not trust this place at all.
Why? Because they give me absolutely no reason to trust them. The website looks very scammy and there is no information about the people behind it. Who created it and things like that? We have no idea.
Also, something that I haven’t mentioned, is that there are “fake news” sites that are referring people to this site. I mean by this is that there are completely fake sites that have been set up to look like legitimate news websites, usually having articles about some “Work at Home Mom Makes $500 a Month Doing Nothing” or something along those lines, but the sites are completely made up. They appear to be legitimate news sources but they are not.
Maybe they will use your Facebook ads account as they say they will, but who is to say that you are actually going to get paid?
What’s More Than Likely Going to Happen
The only logical reason that they are willing to pay people, or at least claim they do, to use their Facebook ads accounts is because they are doing something that Facebook is not okay with, such as advertising scams and scamming people as I mentioned above.
If they were doing everything by the book they would have no reason to be buying other people’s ads accounts. They can simply use their own with no problem.
And… Because they are likely doing something that Facebook does not like… Your ads account is probably going to get disabled in a relatively short period of time and then you will have to go through the ridiculous process of trying to get it re-enabled, which you do not want to go through.
Now this isn’t going to affect your personal Facebook account at all, the one that you use normally to communicate with friends and such, but still…
Conclusion – Scam or Not?
I don’t have any cold hard proof that this is a scam, but it is definitely something that I am going to avoid it and that I recommend avoiding. As I said, your Facebook ads account is just going to get disabled anyhow… So if you actually do make any money at all, if they are actually willing to pay you, it will be a very limited amount because your account is going to be disabled and not be any use to them.
This is definitely not something that you can make $500 a month with over and over again, even if they do pay, which I am hesitant to believe they will.
But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful!
