I come across lots of different sites that on face value seem to provide people with legitimate ways to make money online. And I delight in sharing legitimate opportunities with people, because I love to help people create the lives they want by building their own careers from home. But quite often I will come across sites that are not what they seem, and when I dig further I can hardly believe that they exist.
Whilst I’m predominantly here to share the legitimate ones with you, I think it’s also important that I share others so that you can see how important it is to do your research before signing up to anything.
The ‘opportunity’ I’ll be writing about today is called EcaMoney.win.
What is EcaMoney?
The basis of this site is that you are paid to watch advertisements and refer others.
If you sign up, you supposedly make $0.10 per ad view, and earn 50% of the earnings of your referrals. They claim that you can earn up to $300 per day for up to 5 hours of viewing. They even have a list of the top 50 earners each day – these people earn between $405 and $472 per day. Wow! That’s impressive!
So, if you’re anything like me, you look more into the website to find out about the credentials of the site – such as who is behind it, how long it has been in operation, some detailed FAQs so you can understand exactly how their model works, how the referral program works, how and when you are paid etc. These are all very reasonable things to look for in any website that claims to directly pay you for your time.
However, sadly, but not surprisingly, this information is nowhere to be found.
Are the alarm bells ringing for you yet?
Don’t worry, there is more! In fact, there are plenty more EcaMoneys to go around!
Wait, there’s more than one version of EcaMoney?
It turns out that EcaMoney is one of hundreds of websites that are all duplicated. The ones that I have uncovered include:
- abamoney .bid
- afmoney .win .bid .club .site (2 of these are branded as dommoney.club)
- agmoney .win .bid .club .site
- aqmoney .win
- armoney .win
- asmoney .win .bid .club .site (the .club page is branded as dommoney.club)
- dommomey .club
- ebomoney .win
- edmoney .win .bid .club .site
- ekmoney .win .bid .club .site (the .club page is branded as dommoney.club)
- elmoney .win .bid .club .site
- epmoney .win .bid .club .site (the .club of these is branded as dommoney.club)
- exmoney .win .bid .club .site (the .club page is branded as dommoney.club)
- ewmoney .win .bid .club (the .club page is branded as dommoney.club)
- ifmoney .win
- immoney .bid .win
- nonmoney .bid (this page is branded as dommoney.club)
- odmoney .win .bid .club .site
- ogmoney .win .bid .club .site
- ommoney .win .bid .club .site
- oramoney .club .site
- osmoney .win .bid .club .site
- otmoney .win .bid .club .site
- oxmoney .win .bid .club .site
There are so many more of these duplicate sites. Other URLs I have found with various combinations of .win .bid .club and .site, include:
ubmoney, ukmoney, unmoney, uvmoney, uxmoney, xymoney, ydmoney, ygmoney, yhmoney, ytmoney, yxmoney. There will be so many more with this scheme.
The sites all look the same, and have the same list of top 50 earners for the day! Those top earners must really get around.
Presumably the way these sites earn money is that other websites pay them to play their ads.
Payment for your hard work through EcaMoney
I will tell you up front I have NOT signed up for this website, so the payout aspect is simply what I have uncovered from others who have attempted to get paid from this site (and its duplicates).
Based on research that I have done, the minimum payout amount (they claim) is $150 USD. The website does not tell you this though, you receive a pop up window that tells you that when you try to cash out for a lesser amount.
Once you’ve reached the $150 threshold, and therefore invested significant amounts of your time, you will be enticed to pay $10 so that your payment can be expedited. And then ….. you’ll be asked to provide your referrals. Hold, on what referrals? There’s nothing on the website about having to provide 40 referrals in order to get paid. But it’s OK, don’t worry, because you can purchase the referrals from them! Phew!
OK now my head is hurting. I hope it is becoming clearer that you will be paying them, and you will actually NEVER get paid.
I have never actually found anyone who has been paid anything from this site.
The verdict: Is EcaMoney a scam or is EcaMoney legit?
Hopefully it is now very clear that the verdict on EcaMoney and its duplicates is not a good one!
- EcaMoney is a scam through and through
- Avoid it like the plague
- Do not share this with your friends or anyone you like!
- Ugh just stay away
Normally I would go into my reviews a bit deeper than this one, but I’m not going to in this case, it is so utterly ridiculous and fake, please just stay away from this. Run away, fast.
Some final thoughts
Well now I just feel tired and sad. I’m always disappointed when I find deceptive rubbish like this. The good thing is that you have done your research and now know a bit more about it, so hopefully you will have avoided signing up and wasting hours of your time in the hope of some decent money.
Always be wary of the schemes that sound like you might make some quick and easy money. Do your research. Investigate anything that sounds like it might be too good be true. You should never need to pay anyone in order to be paid for the work you have done. Remember that in order to make decent money online, you need to put in the work like any other business. It won’t happen overnight.
There are much better ways to make money online that are legitimate and are genuine business and career opportunities. If you want a truly sustainable business from home, find out how here.
Are there any other sites you’ve found that people should avoid? What are the best ways that you have built a career from home? If you have any questions I’m always happy to help.
