My Work for Life – Scam or Earn Easy Money? [Avoid]
My Work for Life (at myworkforlife.com) is a website that claims you can easily earn $500 per week in your spare time. They say that you only need 1 hour per day to be able to make this much, and that some of their highest paid members are making $200 a day.
But is this too good to be true? Is this just another scam that is going to be a waste of your time?
As you can tell by the title of this post (in which I say to “avoid!”)–yes this is a scam and it is going to be a waste of your time if you join.
My Work for Life Review
One of the first things that stood out to me when coming across this site was its overall poor quality. It looks like a website that could have been thrown together over a weekend easily and doesn’t seem very professional–not something I would really want to get involved with because it doesn’t seem like a place you would be able to make an easy $500 per week with.
It claims to be “your best place to earn money online” but the way things are looking this seems like it could very well be the opposite.
Also, it obviously has been created by someone who speaks English as a second, third, or maybe even 10th language–much of what you are told doesn’t really make much sense, such as “we has been around since years and has over thousands members wordwide”–ya–I doubt it.
But anyways, it all sounds so simple. According to the website, all you have to do is…
- Setup account
- “Instant approve” – their words not mine (bad English)
- Work little
- Get paid
Sounds easy enough, does it not?
How You Supposedly Make Money
As mentioned, the website looks like something that could have been thrown together over the course of a weekend. There’s not much information on anything, but if you go to the FAQ page they explain things a bit better.
At first all you know is that you will be completing some sort of “tasks” in order to make money, but on the FAQ page they make it very clear that what you will be doing to earn money is referring other people to join the website. They don’t tell you how much money you will make per referral, but this is the only way described to make money.
And of course they make it all sound so simple–all you have to do is post your referral link on forums, Facebook, Twitter, Etc and you are going to be able to make an extra $500 per week–ya right!
Getting other people to join a website like this is not nearly as easy as it may seem. Other people are going to be suspicious, just as you are now. And besides this, although posting links on social media is completely free, it is going to be a terribly ineffective way to get referrals unless you have previous online marketing experience.
What Happens When You Join..
After joining you will be able to log into your account and access the job dashboard, which is about as plain and boring as you can possibly imagine. Basically what it consists of is your referral link like this…And here it does tell you how much you’ll be making, which is supposedly $5 to $10 just for getting someone to click on your link!
Yes, you heard me right, just for getting someone to click on your link.
The people that you refer to the website don’t actually have to join according to the information provided here, they just have to click your link.
You Need $300 to Cash Out!
I also found that you’re going to need $300 in order to cash out.
That is absolutely ridiculous. If you look at websites like Swagbucks, Inbox Dollars, and others that will pay you to complete simple tasks as well as to refer friends to join, they usually have the threshold that you have to reach at around $5 to $10.
A cash out threshold of $300 sounds absurd and makes this seem even more like a scam.
How It Really Works
Nothing about this website seems legitimate by any means.
When you come across an opportunity like this you always have to ask yourself where the money is coming from. How can they possibly afford to pay members $5 to $10 just for getting people to click on a referral link?
The answer: They CAN’T
What Is more than likely going on here is this website is making money by collecting personal data from the people that join, such as your name and email address. They make you believe that you can actually make money by referring others to join, so members go out promoting their referral link like crazy, but the only people actually make you money here are the people that created this website.
So while the creators might actually be making some money by selling personal data without you knowing it, there is still no way that they can afford to pay $5 to $10 for referral link clicks.
And why on earth would they cash out amount be $300? This just makes no sense–very scammy.
Conclusion – Avoid
Okay, so let’s do a quick recap here:
The website is very poorly put together, contains very little information, and it looks like something that a 13 year old could have created over the course of a weekend. It all sounds too good to be true and the amount of money they say you can supposedly make by simply getting people to click on your referral link sounds absurd. And you need a ridiculous amount of $300 in your account before you can cash out.
There is nothing about this that seems legitimate at all.
You are more than welcome to join if you want to, but this is definitely not a website I will be recommending to my readers. And if you do join, be sure to use an email address that you don’t really care about, because you are probably going to be receiving tons of spam emails after signing up here.
If you are looking for a legitimate and a proven way to make money online, then I would highly suggest taking a look at how I make a living working for myself online (which I have been doing since 2015).
