Is Viral Pay a Scam? – Avoid at All Costs
Viral Pay (viralpay.co) claims that you can start making $500 today by inviting friends to join the site, which will earn you $10 each time. They also claim to be “the #1 influencer network helping you make money with social media”.
But is any of this true? Is it really as easy as it seems? Or is Viral Pay a scam?
It sounds pretty amazing that you can earn potentially life-changing amounts of money by just sharing your link on social media and getting others to sign up–but this website also seems a bit fishy and too good to be true.
I’m guessing you probably are thinking the same–judging by the fact that you are reading my review now.
And it’s a good thing you did come across it because this is a website I definitely DO NOT recommend joining. In short, yes it is a scam and I will be going over why.
Viral Pay Review
It all sounds so easy, which is the reason this opportunity is so attractive. I mean who wouldn’t want to earn easy money online?
They tell you that all you have to do is join, share your link and cash out… Sounds easy enough…And for all of the doubters out there, or people who are suspicious that it might be a scam, they claim to already have 65,000+ happy members and to have already paid out $20 million…
BUT… Remember you can’t always trust what you hear or see online. This is just what they tell you–and since it is their website they can tell you whatever they want to.
That said, if these statistics really were true that would be quite impressive (but they’re not).
Further down the homepage they also had a section with a bunch of testimonials, with people claiming to have made significant amounts of money on the website, such as “Jack M” who earned over $21,000…
Ya… So that is what they tell you… But who really cares what they say… Let’s get into why this is a scam and why you should avoid it…
Scam? Yes and I’ll Show You Why
As soon as I came across this website, located at viralpay.co, I knew it was a scam.
Well, because just the other day I exposed a cousin website, or maybe a brother website, called Viral Dollars. Viral Dollars is pretty much a clone of Viral Pay with some slight differences.
They both tell you the same things:” make $500 today”, that you can earn $10 for referring friends, etc.
And you can see how similar the dashboards of the 2 websites look above… Pretty much identical. (this is what you see after you join)
So ya… I knew it was a scam as soon as I came across it because I had just exposed the Viral Dollars website–which is actually the newer of the two scams.
Things Just Don’t Add Up
I took the liberty of running a website check on ScamAdviser and found that the site is only 46 days old as I am writing this…
Now this makes you wonder… How can this website possibly already have 65,000 members and have already paid out $20 million???
This seems a bit absurd, does it not?
Well… Like I said… It is hard to know what you can and can’t trust online, but this seems to be something that you definitely cannot trust–a lie.
They also have a page on their website with a bunch of payment proofs, or at least what are supposed to be payment proofs, and these don’t make any sense either. Below you can see a screenshot I took of 2 payments–both of which are dated to a time before this website was even created.
How the heck is this possible?
*They one payment of $245 is dated at September 13, 2018–the other payment of $355 is dated at September 12, 2018–both of which are over 6 months before the website was even created.
Have I showed enough yet?
Well, if you still have any desire to join, this will change your mind…
What Happens When You Join..
After joining you will come to the dashboard area which looks like this…
Over on the left-hand menu of the screen there are a variety of different options to choose from. There is the “refer & earn”, the “$30 task wall”, “promotional posts”, etc.
I was already aware it was a scam as you know, but for the purposes of this review I decided to test it out. I went to the $30 Task Wall to see what offers were available to me…
The offer to get a $100 McDonald’s gift card and earn $30 at the same time sounded pretty appealing. I’m not a big fan of Big Macs and fries, but I do like McDonald’s chicken wraps… So a $100 gift card would be nice.
But anyways… That gift card was never realized.
When I clicked on the offer I was taken to a website called National Consumer Center…
Unfortunately I am very familiar with National Consumer Center… And for reasons that are not good.
Basically what this website does is takes you on a never ending journey in circles. As you can see above, it says that I can “collect 100 points & get a $100 McDonald’s gift card”, but the problem is that it is impossible to ever collect 100 points. They will take you around in circles, making you complete survey after survey, enter information for various reasons, and you will never get to the finish line.
If you don’t believe me you can test it out for yourself.
Conclusion – Avoid
Maybe you can make a bit of money with this website, I don’t know because I’m not willing to waste my time–but one thing is for sure–this website is not the legitimate website that he claims to be.
Ridiculous income claims, statistics that make no sense, another website that is pretty much an exact duplicate, fake offers to win $100 gift cards… Everything about this website points to it being a scam.
My suggestion–AVOID. And if you do for some reason still have the desire to sign up, just do so with an email address that you don’t really care about, because you are probably going to end up with a bunch of spam emails after entering your information all over the place.
There are many legitimate ways to make money online out there, this just does not seem to be one of them, unfortunately.
If interested, I highly recommend taking a look at how I make money online if you want a proven legitimate way to do so.
