Have you been searching for an honest and truthful review of referral pay and wondering what this system is about?
Perhaps you have had this opportunity marketed to you from a friend or family member on Facebook or other social media platform and wondering if it’s legit or not.
Congrats on doing your research and searching for answers before willingly giving out your personal information to someone who may be trying to scam you.
Here lately these types of sites have been circling the online space quite frequently and there are quite a few other copycat sites that are identical to this one.
They are as follows
These sites are basically cookie-cutter replicated sites that all lead back to the same program.
Within the following review, I’ll be showing you guys exactly what this program is, how it works, and more importantly why you need to avoid giving out any of your personal information.
If you have come to this review then you likely have many questions about this system and I plan to answer each & every one of them within the context of this review.
However, like always, if I fail to answer your questions I encourage you to leave them for me in the comments below and I’ll get back to you with a detailed reply.
Let’s get started, OK?
Referral Pay Review
Product Name: Referral Pay
Type Of Work: Recruiting
Price To Get Started: $0
Overall Rating: 1/5 Stars
Referral Pay is a phishing scam site disguised as a GPT site. They claim to pay up to $10 per referral & be the #1 influencer site online.
Referral Pay is a site that claims to pay you up to $2 for each click and up to $10 for each person that you successfully refer to their site.
There are also additional tasks that they claim you can earn up to $50 for completing.
However, after doing a great deal of research I discovered that this is nothing more than a phishing scam that leads you to a pretty well known scam that I had just reviewed a few short months ago.
Continue reading to see where you’ll be redirected to once you attempt to complete various offers and complete surveys on their site.
Taking surveys & completing offers can be an excellent way of earning a little cash on the side if you can find an honest and legit program that isn’t out to steal your identity or even worst, drain your bank account.
Which is more than likely what could possibly happen with this particular system!!
I have spent a great deal of time reviewing a plethora of GPT sites of this nature and know which ones are legit as well as the ones you should steer clear of.
Pros Vs Cons At A Glance
- Free to get started
- A phishing scam that sells your personal information
- Haven’t been around since 2015
- Has a track record of NOT paying out
- Redirects to several scam sites
What Is Referral Pay?
They claim to be the #1 influencer network online that will pay you for things like taking surveys, clicking links, & referring your friends and family members.
Contrary to what their website says they haven’t been around since 2015 nor have they paid out millions in commissions like you are led to believe after reading their about page.
If the truth were to be told, this system emerged somewhere around May of this year (2019) and has replicated itself many times within only a few short months.
(I’ll be providing actual proof on this here in a few minutes)
They start you out with a $25 starter credit which is deposited into your account shortly after you join.
However, before you can cash this out and earn any money with them you’ll need to be active within the system and meet a few requirements before requesting payment.
How It Works
Once you have created your account you’ll be able to login to the member’s area where your affiliate dashboard will be displayed.
This is where you’ll gain access to the referral program as well as the $30 task wall as well as other ways for you to potentially earn up to $50 per submission.
Your dashboard should look similar to the one you see below!!
As you can see from the screenshot above, there are many ways for you to supposedly earn money from this system.
Whether you’re looking to utilize their referral program or try your luck at surveys this all seems like a pretty legit site so far.
They mainly tell you to post your referral link as many places as you possibly can to increase your chances of referring people into this system.
However, this is known as spam and most social networks (Especially Facebook & Twitter) have spam filters set up to flag these types of posts.
This could result in getting your account suspended and even worst, possibly get your account banned for good by participating in this kind of behavior.
The Real Program Hiding Behind Referral Pay
As I continued to do my research on this system, I quickly discovered that I was redirected to several very spammy & in my opinion scam websites that are in the business of selling your personal info to 3rd party companies.
One of the ones that particularly stood out to me was the National Consumer Center as I just reviewed this a few months back & know from personal experience that this is a SCAM.
Many of you may be familiar with this scam as they bribe you with a $100 Walmart gift card in exchange for answers to the following questions.
- Do you plan on shopping at Walmart this Black Friday?
- Have you ever found more than $20 on the ground?
- What would you buy with a $100 Walmart gift card?
To make matters even worst, once I answered these questions I was redirected to yet another third party sites where I had to start this process all over again and answer another set of questions.
I would highly advise you against giving out any of your personal information out to any of these sites as they could possibly steal your identity if they are able to gain access to this info.
Requirements To Cash Out
In order for you to cash out your earning you’ll need to meet a few requirements and follow their strict set of guidelines.
As I attempted to cash out my so called $25 in earnings I was presented with the following message!!
This means that you would need to complete 4 or more paid offers that require a valid credit card going through places like National Consumer Center and many other scam sites just to cash out your earnings.
While these requirements aren’t anything insane or unreasonable, you’ll still be putting your personal info out there and risking a lot for only $25- $50.
Don’t you think?
There are definitely much better GPT/ Survey sites out there that pay a whole lot more without putting your personal info at risk.
Proof They Haven’t Been Around Since 2015
As I continued to dig even deeper into this system, I decided to look up their DNS records to see when this site was officially registered.
After doing some thorough research on this system and finding out the truth about them I was able to pull up the following DNS records and see when they officially launched.
As you can see in the screenshot above, this site has only been around since May of this year (Less than 4 months old)
So let me ask you this question.
How could a site that has only started back in May have over 225,000 members and have paid out over $60 million in commissions already?
This is not humanly possible and is nothing more than a marketing tactic used to gain your trust and lure you into this system and hand over your personal information.
Also, as I said earlier, there are already a plethora of other domain names that they have acquired as well that are populating the internet as we speak that act as a funnel that leads back to this system.
In my own personal opinion, I feel like any business that plans to be around for the long term would at least register their domain for a couple of years in advance, don’t you think?
This isn’t a huge factor or nothing but it does play a small part in the legitimacy of this program.
At least I think it does.
Will They Pay?
This seems to be the problem with a lot of these types of systems that are based on recruiting and other types of activities of this nature.
After doing a good amount of research on the experience other people have had with referral pay I have come up with the following information.
In addition to these pissed off people above, there were also a high number of complaints from members who have earned as much as $2,000 dollars but once they went to cashout their payments were voided.
Supposedly they say that the member violated their fraud policy but this is nothing but a bunch of BS to be completely honest with you guys.
As you can see NOBODY is getting paid from this scam and the payment proof & testimonials that you see on their websites are yet another marketing tactic used to lure you into this system and hand over your personal info.
Don’t fall for it!!
Is Referral Pay A Scam?
I think it’s quite obvious after reading this review that this program is nothing more than a phishing scam that is used to lure you in and get you to enter your personal & financial information into their site.
These types of scams have been making their way around the internet for years and it seems like when 1 gets shutdown there are at least 15 to 20 more that take their place.
If you’re looking for a way to make money from completing tasks and taking surveys then you should look into Survey Rewardz, Inbox Dollars, Or Survey Junkie as an alternative to this system.
These are well known & established companies that have been around for years and have built a solid reputation of paying its members on time.
My Closing Thoughts
Being scammed has got to be 1 of the worst things ever as I have had this happen to me more times than I would like to admit.
Trust me, it sucks but having your identity stolen has got to be even worse.
Luckily, this has never happened to me and I hope it never does.
Anyway, if you’re more of an ambitious person and you’re interested in more than taking surveys and completing tasks then you may want to look into Wealthy Affiliate.
This is the company that has shown me how to build this very website that you’re visiting right now and shown me how to earn a full time living from the comfort of my home.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in learning more about then I highly encourage you to check them out for yourself to see what they can do for you.
Other than that, I really hope this Referral Pay Review has given you guys an inside look at what this system is all about and why you should avoid them at all costs.
Have a personal experience with this program that you would like to share with other people?
