Thanks for reading my Paid 4 Clout review!
I'm so happy you're doing your research on this one because Paid 4 Clout was most recently Clout Pay, which was shown to be a scam website. Clout Pay now redirects to Paid 4 Clout.
Paid 4 Clout, like Clout Pay, is nothing but a data harvesting scam, and you would be best to stay far, far away from it or anything that looks like it.
Let me show you exactly why in this Paid 4 Clout review.
What is Paid 4 Clout? [Review]
Paid 4 Clout gets a quality score of zero. I am only giving it 1/2 star so that the stars show up. This entire site gets a zero because it's a scam site and I advise you not to join.
It's not going to be easy to make money with Paid 4 Clout because they won't pay you. (See more about this below.) They don't have a way to make money to pay you. This is nothing but a sham.
While the site is "free" to join, you will pay with much more than cash. You will be paying with your personal information.
Summary: Paid 4 Clout claims to be a website where you can get paid for your social clout. They say that they are a "Get Paid To" (GPT) site where you can earn money by doing small tasks and by referring friends. However, they don't actually have a way to pay you and once they are called out as a scam site enough, they will shut down and put up a new site in its place.
I absolutely would not recommend that you join this site. In fact, I recommend that you stay far away from Paid 4 Clout and any site that looks just like it. I have seen this exact site template again and again. They continue to put up new sites to try to get even more unsuspecting people to fall for this.
What is Paid 4 Clout?
Paid 4 Clout is a "Get Paid To" (GPT) site that says you can make money from them in a few different ways:
- Earn a $25 bonus just for signing up
- Earn $10-$15 for every friend you invite
- Earn various amounts of money by doing surveys and other small tasks
This site is exactly like several other sites I've already reviewed:
- Clout Pay (Clout Pay now redirects to Paid 4 Clout)
- Clout Bucks (Still active)
- Viral Dollars (Redirects to Referral Pay)
- Kids Earn Cash (Redirects to Clout Bucks)
- Kids Paid Money (Dead homepage, but you can still get to the blog)
If you take a look at my Kids Earn Cash review, I signed up and went through the website. I'm not going to do that for Paid 4 Clout because it's going to be the same process with the same member's area.
How Does Paid 4 Clout Work?
Paid 4 Clout claims that how this works is that they get paid via advertisers and then they pay people who refer others a portion of that ad revenue.
In case you can't read that, it says:
"We strive to provide straight transparency to our members. Money generated from ad-spend revenue and sponsorship products is used to pay our members. By inviting friends, you are building traffic to our site and increasing ad revenue. You are also increasing exposure to our sponsors’ products, ultimately, increasing sponsor relations across our network."
For legitimate GPT sites, this is how they work. The GPT site makes money by getting people over to a particular site's page.
A site like Level Rewards (a legit GPT site) sends people to a Hulu trial offer, and when someone signs up for that trial offer, Level Rewards makes a commission. The more people they send to the Hulu offer, the more money they make. Therefore, they can afford to share a portion of that money with their members and their referrals.
However, Paid 4 Clout doesn't work with legitimate offers with legitimate companies like Hulu. Oh, they say they do. They say they work with big brands like these:
But it's not really true.
Again, go through my Kids Earn Cash review to understand a little more about what happens. To make it simple, they send you to survey sites where they say you can earn gift cards to these brands, but it's those types of survey sites where you have to jump through endless hoops and where you have to give up a lot of your personal data.
In the end, you probably won't even qualify to get the gift card because it's all a sham.
These brands have nothing to with any of this.
How Paid 4 Clout Really Works
What's really happening here is that Paid 4 Clout collects your personal information. And they collect your friends' personal information. And they hope that you keep sharing, and your friends keep sharing so that they can get even more personal information from even more people.
So they can sell it.
To other scammers.
Online Reviews / Complaints
Paid 4 Clout is too new to have any real complaints, but I always like to show the complaints from Kids Earn Cash /(Kids Earn Money LLC) because it's basically the same website anyway.
Here are just two of the many complaints that are on the BBC website.
I hope you can read the second one clearly. She said that the scammers blocked her on Twitter, hacked her account and changed all of her information.
These are the kind of people we're talking about here who run these scam sites.
Is Paid 4 Clout a Scam or Legit?
Paid 4 Clout is a scam, 100% no doubt. I don't usually call things scams unless I'm really sure. This is a scam. Do not enter your information into this site. If you already have, then make sure you change your passwords on any other site where you used the same password as Paid 4 Clout. And make sure to tell your friends to do the same if any of them have signed up under you.
Here are a few more ways we can tell that Paid 4 Clout is a shady, fake scam site.
#1 - Fake Testimonials
All the testimonials on this site are fake. The people in these video testimonials (which, by the way, are for Clout Pay) are actors.
They have been on several other product sales pages I've reviewed. Here's one of the guys from the freelancer website Fiverr.com.
These actors and actresses likely have no idea that they're vouching for a scammer's website, as they're just doing the job they were paid to do.
The testimonials on the homepage are fake too. Take Darrius, for example:
When you do a Google search for his image, all sorts of things come up. It's just a random user profile image that they add some testimonial copy to to make it look legit.
The payment proofs are fake too. You can read more about those in my Clout Bucks review.
You Won't Be Able to Contact Them
When you're ready for your payment, but it's not coming? Forget about contacting them. None of their contact information is real. I put their email firstname.lastname@example.org into a handy dandy email checker that I have and here are the results:
Forget those social media buttons too. They don't go anywhere except right back to their homepage.
Their Terms are crazy. I can't believe they take time to even put it together because they're scammers and why even try? In any case, this is the part in their terms that always kills me:
You probably can't read that unless you have supersonic eyes, but it says:
"If we determine in our sole discretion that your account contains fraudulent traffic, we will void any money, points, rewards, or potential rewards you have earned and we will terminate your account. And if a payment has already been made to you, we will allow thirty (30) days for you to refund it or we will take legal action. You agree to abide by the final and binding decisions of the Company regarding any Rewards Program and your participation in it. We reserve the right to change, suspend, or cancel all or a portion of a Affiliate Program, including any points you may have accrued, at any time without prior notice to you."
In other words, this is them saying how they're not going to pay you.
I hope this Paid 4 Clout review has convinced you that this is a complete and utter scam and that you should stay far, far away from it or any other site that looks like it.
Once they get enough people calling this a scam, they will close the site down and a new one will pop up, so be aware of that happening. They are ALL scam, data harvesting websites.
Be aware that none of these types of sites will really allow you to make a full-time income online. If you're looking to replace your current income, then I suggest you check out my #1 recommendation.
