EarningCash review: scam or legit? Read t

Published

on

Thanks for reading my EarningCash Review.

Like most people today, you’re probably struggling in this difficult economy, wondering what to do and how to make it until things get better. Bills piling up and debts weighing you down… you’re not alone. 

And I’m optimistic that things will get better. 

In the meantime though, you’re looking for a way to make money online and EarningCash seems like a good way to do it.

But is it legit?

Or… like the avalanche of online predatory frauds that never seem to end, is it just another scam?

As hopeful as EarningCash is, you know it doesn’t sound right. It can’t be that easy to earn hundreds of dollars doing simple tasks and posting short videos on sites like YouTube, TikTok… can it? 

In this review, I’m going to explain what EarningCash.co really is, how it works and what it can (and can’t) do for you. If you think EarningCash sounds too good to be true, you are right…

The topics I’m going to cover are:

  • What is EarningCash.co?
  • Is EarningCash a Scam?
  • How Does EarningCash Work?
  • EarningCash Reviews and Complaints
  • What I Like About EarningCash
  • What I Don’t Like
  • Where Do You Go From Here?

What is EarningCash.co?


EarningCash is, according to them, a social media network that pays you for completing surveys, downloading apps, and referring your friends, family, and co-workers. Or at least that’s what they claim. 

They also claim that most big-name influencers on social media most likely work for them.

Those are their words, not mine…

EarningCash Who We Are

I’ll tell you now, I did a lot of research looking into the activity of every big-name influencers I could think of, and not a single one has any connection or affiliation to EarningCash. Maybe I just don’t know of the right big-name influencers… but I suspect this claim is false. 

EarningCash.co is also not a “social media network” as they claim. They don’t provide a platform for social engagement in which you can network with your friends, family, and others. That’s not what they are. 

At best, they can be described as an online survey or rewards site. But even that’s being generous because the more I looked into EarningCash, the more I was convinced they’re a scam. And I’ve seen this scam before.

You shouldn’t take my word for it though. Let me show you what I found and you can decide for yourself

Is EarningCash a Scam?


If there’s one thing I’ve learned having reviewed hundreds of these types of programs over the years, is that making money online is hard. 

Not everyone is looking for a shortcut to riches (although most probably are). But there are many just looking for a break. A way to cover their rent, keep the lights on, and of course, buy food. 

But even that can be hard. 

Now, making money online certainly has its advantages, but that does not mean it’s any “easier” than making it offline. The same principles apply… you must provide one thing of fair value in exchange for another. 

Money is not free. 

So when sites like EarningCash come along saying they’ll pay you more per minute than most people make in an hour, it’s a scam.

I know… I shouldn’t jump to conclusions, and I won’t. They deserve the benefit of the doubt like everyone does, so it’s on me to find evidence that they’re a scam. 

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your perspective), finding evidence here wasn’t that hard…

Fake Credibility


The first thing that jumped out at me is their 4.5 star rating at Trustpilot

EarningCash False Trustpilot Claims

According to EarningCash’s site, they have have a four-and-a-half star rating on Trustpilot based on 1,035 reviews.

This is not difficult to verify. 

Normally, you’d click on those 1,035 reviews (the link they underlined on their homepage) and you’d be taken to another page where you could read what people are saying. But the link doesn’t work. 

That’s suspicious, but maybe it’s just a broken link. An error someone needs to fix. 

No problem, we can always go directly to Trustpilot to find out, and when you do, this is what you see…

EarningCash Trustpilot Rating 0

Currently, they have no stars based on zero reviews. 

That’s a far cry from 4.5 stars based on 1,035 ratings.

False Testimonials


If you’re keeping score, we know so far that their claim of working with most big-name influencers as they say, is a lie.

We also know they’re not telling the truth about their Trustpilot rating. 

What about the promising testimonials on their homepage? 

Here’s Lilia Maria who says EarningCash was the first website she used to earn money and considers it one of her favorites. She also says we should trust her…

EarningCash Fake Testimonial

As you can see from the above screenshots, EarningCash wasn’t her only “first”. She also says Cash Miracle (a different site completely) was the first site she used to earn money. 

Actually, after digging deep into the archives of the web, I believe Lilia Maria is a real person because I found her profile on another site (one that I won’t reveal to protect her privacy) and she left this exact review, word for word, about another rewards website (a legitimate one that has nothing to do with EarningCash or Cash Miracle). 

So whoever copied it from the legit site to falsely use on EarningCash, is most like the same person who copied it to use on CashMiracle, which is a scam

Fake Payment Proof


With all of the testimonials and positive reviews nothing but lies, I had to assume the payment proof was a lie also. 

Here are some examples (make note of the dates listed on these payment proof examples). 

EarningCash Payment Proof 1 and 2
EarningCash Payment Proof 3

These are just a few of what EarningCash says proves people are making money with their site. The dates on these are Aug 16, Sept 17 and Oct 2 2020.

Here’s the problem…

earningcash.co did not even exist when these payments were allegedly made. Their domain name was not even registered until Oct 20 2020…

Again, if you’re keeping score we now have false claims about their star-rating, fake testimonials, claims about working with influencers… and now we know there’s some doctoring going on with these payment proof examples.

Copied Content from Other Sites 


A common characteristic of scams is that they’ll copy and paste text (and other content) from other websites. They are scams, after all, so plagiarism is hardly something they’re worried about. 

I was also intrigued that they didn’t come up with their own fake testimonials, but rather copied and pasted from a legit site. Not surprised, but intrigued… which got me wondering what else they copied.

So, with a little searching, I found these similarities between EarningCash and another site called TimeBucks.

EarningCash Copied Text From Other Sites

Copied sections taken from timebucks.com

TimeBucks has been around for years and it’s legit. EarningCash (as well as a bunch of other scams which I’ll talk about in a moment) have clearly been “inspired” by TimeBucks.

A Network of Scams


As I mentioned above, there are a bunch of other scams that come into play here. I noticed similarities not only between EarningCash and TimeBucks, but also with CashMiracle which I discussed earlier… and a bunch of other scams called Cash MonsterWiredBucksEZ Bucks and SwiftBucks

Yep… that’s a lot of bucks. 

These are all scams that belong to a network of schemes including several dozen others, if not more, and they’ve been making the rounds for years. The earliest one I’ve found goes back as far as 2010.

So EarningCash is definitely a scam. 

How Does EarningCash.co Work?


You already know how EarningCash is supposed to work. You sign up for free, complete offers and get paid via PayPal, Cashapp, Venmo, Bitcoin or Check. 

On the surface, it sounds straightforward. 

When you pull back the covers and look underneath though, you find something entirely different. 

Let’s start with YouTube, TikTok and other platform submissions…

EarningCash dashboard (Submission Status)

As you can see, they pay a significant amount for what amounts to a simple task. 

  • Earn $40 for posting on YouTube (1-minute video)
  • Earn $40 for posting on Facebook
  • Earn $40 for posting on Instagram
  • Earn $50 for posting on TikTok

You could easily do all of those in under an hour and make $170. 

Then you can complete some surveys for $50 each, download some apps for $45, refer your friends and $30 and make $2 every time someone clicks on your referral link. 

That’s two bucks a click, not per sign-up. 

Task Categories

This is some serious money, and you can’t help but ask… where is this money coming from? 

According to them, they generate revenue through their sponsors and that revenue goes back to you. 

How very “noble” of them. 

To understand what’s going on here we really need to understand who these sponsors are and where the money is coming from because I’ve been through their site and I can’t find any sponsors who would account for the kind of money they’re putting on the table. 

There are some relatively well-known apps like iHeartRadio and Stash

App install tasks

But these apps are already paying you a lot of money for what doesn’t seem like a fair trade (not really, but that’s what the claim is).

For example, EarningCash says Lucktastic Match is going to pay you $45 if you install their app and download two more apps from their offerwall? 

None of this makes any economic sense for these app companies, who get millions of downloads for free. They don’t need to pay anyone to join. At least, they don’t need to pay anyone $45, because there are millions who would gladly do it for $5 or less. 

iHeartRadio for example, has over 50M downloads. Why would they pay us $45 just to download the app and listen to 80’s radio stations? 

I don’t know about you, but having their app on my phone (even if I listen to it) is NOT worth $45 to them. They are not getting $45 worth of value out of me. So to pay me that kind of money would be a complete waste. 

But as ridiculous it sounds (that they’d pay that much), let’s say it’s true. 

Let’s say they pay even more, $50 or $60 to EarningCash, so EarningCash can at least make a little profit too. That still doesn’t account for the amount of money they claim to pay you for your video and social media submissions, which don’t directly generate any revenue. 

For example, if EarningCash has 100,000 members (which is not many considering they’re pretty much giving away free money)… 

… and each one of those 100,000 members submitted a YouTube and TikTok video, and then posted on Facebook and Instagram… EarningCash would have to pay $17 MILLION dollars (100,000 members multiplied by $170) before a single sponsor or advertiser was even involved in the process. 

And… the purpose of those submissions is to acquire new members, right? 

That means they’re on the hook for another $2 per click and $30 per referral. Then those new members submit their own videos and social media posts costing EarningCash tens of MILLIONS more.

It’s a never-ending hurricane of cash that’s tearing off roofs and knocking down powerlines, and if it were true, the world would be swimming down streets of joy, flooded with rivers of dollar bills and bitcoins.

There would be no more hunger, poverty, or scarcity… and no more wars.  

Obviously this is a fantasy, so what’s going on here?

EarningCash Reviews and Complaints


There’s a reason this scam is not limited to a single website or name, and that’s because after a few months when members realize they’re not going to get paid, they share their frustrations online. 

Here are a few from their sister scam Wiredbucks…

Consumer comments

EarningCash is still relatively new so there are fewer complaints. As they acquire more members and time passes, they’ll also acquire more reviews and complaints. 

Having said that, they are starting to trickle in…

Over the coming months, if it’s the same pattern we’ve seen with their sister scams (and this pattern has played out over and over and over), you’ll see a lot more complaints like these. 

What I Like About EarningCash


If you’re just skimming (don’t worry, I’m a skimmer too) and stopped at this point… you may be surprised to know there’s nothing I like about EarningCash. Of course, if you’ve been following along, you’ll know exactly why there’s nothing I like about it.

What I Don’t Like


  • Where do I start? Fake testimonials, fake payment proof, false credibility, copied content from legit sites…
  • Data harvesting for the purpose of identity theft and account hacking.
  • It’s a scam.
  • Empty promises and false hope. Sites like EarningCash make you feel like a weight is being lifted off your shoulders, but it’s a lie. When the weight comes crashing back down it the hurt is worse than if it was before it was lifted (temporarily and falsely) in the first place. 

Where Do You Go From Here?


I know making money online is what you want and I wish I could tell you EarningCash is the way to do it. Times are tough as you’re well aware, and so is making money (tough to earn I mean)…

There are endless opportunities online and whatever your passion, skill or experience, there is something for you.

But just like the offline world, you must work at it. And that’s okay. I don’t know your specific situation but I’m pretty sure you’re not afraid of hard work.

What EarningCash is suggesting though, is that money is virtually free. That you can sign up easily and without learning a skill or providing any significant value to anyone, you can make hundreds or even thousands of dollars with very little effort. 

That’s just not possible. 

They’re adding confusion and frustration to an industry that’s already raging with confusion and frustration. 

Legit sites like Survey Junkie and Inbox Dollars, which are great for someone just getting started online (who’s never made money online before), all of a sudden don’t sound very good when scams like EarningCash are claiming that small tasks like posting on social media, completing surveys and getting referrals are worth as much as $30, $40 and even $50 each. 

And it even makes you question the legitimacy of real sites. They make you feel like everything out there is a scam. 

Now, you can definitely earn significant money online, but those who do, have a skill. They might be a well-paid freelance writer for example, or own an online business

You may be at home with children to look after or have health difficulties which make a regular job challenging.

If that’s the case and a full-time income online is what you want, knowing how and where to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.
