Paid2Share.co. Don't believe any of it. It's just one of many sites that have been created by a serial scammer. These sites primarily target young, new social network users, claiming to pay out cash just for referring others. So the messages are going viral among teenage kids for a very short period (a month or two), "Paid2Share is legit! I got $450 paid today!" No, they haven't got paid a dime, and they never will.
Today, my Paid2Share review explains why you should stay away from it or any similar sites. Because not only will you be wasting your time but you'll also be voluntarily giving away your personal data to spammers by entering "surveys" and prize competitions - they're all fake!

What Is Paid 2 Share?
Paid2Share claims to be an affiliate network. It claims to generate revenue by advertising and the revenue is shared with its affiliates. It also says many "big name" influencers work for Paid2Share.
Totally untrue, and none of these claims makes sense. Firstly, it's not an affiliate network. All it does is advertise itself and advertise spammers to the registered users. It does not generate enough revenue to pay anyone, and there's no influencer. None.
It tries to draw the attention of new users by offering unrealistic value of cash for barely a "job", such as;
- $50 just for signing up.
- $25 for every friend a user refers to.
- $50 for completing a "task".
- $15-$30 every time a user promotes Paid2Share.
You'll see your Paid2Share account balance increase very quickly as you do these tasks and, it will give you a false impression of "the easiest money online". The catch is simple - it will never pay you. All it does is ignore your withdrawal request completely. Soon your Paid2Share account will be deleted and you'll lose your access. Upon signing up, you'll be asked to tell them how you want to get paid (i.e. PayPal, Bitcoin, CashApp, or by check) but of course, it only asks you in an attempt to appear to be legit.
Paid2Share - the money you see in your dashboard is not real. You'll never be able to actually cash it out.
So What Really Is It?
Paid2Share.co is a data harvesting scam. It's affiliated to fake advertising agents who falsely offer a prize in return for your personal data. To enter a prize competition, you are required to give out your full personal detail (full name, email address, street address, phone number, date of birth, etc.) which will be sold to spammers.
Each time you successfully submit your personal data, Paid2Share will receive a small commission from the ad agent, usually $1 - $1,20, no more than $2.
That's how they make money, and very little they make. But Paid2Share promises to pay you $50 each time - you see how it makes no sense? They only make just over a dollar each time a user completes a task, so they need as many users to join in. So they try whatever it takes to lure people in - by falsely promising unrealistic amount of money. Share the link and promote Paid2Share on Facebook for $20, on Instagram for $15, on YouTube for $30, and so on.
"About Us" - Totally Fake
Well, pretty much everything that Paid2Share tells you is untrue. On the "About Us" page, it says Paid2Share was launched in 2015... No, the site domain was only registered in March 2020. It's a brand new scam site.
It also says, "we partnered up with brands such as Walmart, Papa Johns, and Subway in 2016". That's all it says - it doesn't explain what kind of mutually beneficial relationship it had with each company or anything in detail. Without a credible explanation, it's clear that they're not telling you the truth.
According to the "Contact Us" page, the owner is based in "Los Angeles, CA", but no exact address is given.
However, the Terms & Conditions page says something different; the owner is Paid2Share, PTY., based in Melbourne, Australia. But no exact address is given. It says "Please contact us by mail to: Paid2Share, PTY, Melbourne, Australia; Attention: Customer Service." But no such company can be found in the Australian company registration site. The Instagram ID is "@paid2shareinc" (Paid2Share Inc.), not PTY. The owner obviously decided to display fake information but failed to be consistent.
Fake, Unauthorized "Testimonials"
"Testimonials from our loyal affiliates" - none of this is true. Some photos have already appeared in other mirror sites including OG Dollars and Cash OG, owned by the same scammer, while others include YouTuber Lenarr Young and Instagrammer Brittanya. Their names and photos are used unauthorized, and the "testimonials" are clearly fake. Check Lenarr's YouTube channel - he never mentions anything about this scam...obviously!
Fake "Task Wall"
None of the items listed in the Task Wall is really, not a task. They're all titled; "Get a $100 McDonald's gift card!" "Get a $1,000 Visa gift card!", followed by a brief instruction saying "Enter your email and complete the steps to earn $50". It may sound as if you can automatically receive a gift card AND $50 if you complete the steps.
Of course, no such magical offer exists. And if you actually click any one of them to try, you'll be asked to enter your full personal detail - not just email address. The "steps" are silly, fake survey questions like "Who are you going to use the gift card for? [Yourself] [A friend or family member]" etc, not even a survey.
You Don't Deserve This
You see where I'm going? In the past, many users have been fooled by these silly tricks on similar scam sites - not just teenage kids but also adults. My inbox has been inundated with messages from the users of Money Genie, CloutBucks, Social Bounty, etc., asking for the way to "get their money back". They would try these childish "tasks" over & over again believing they're earning money, then got upset for not being able to cash it.
The question is, did you actually earn money? Do you deserve to get paid a few hundred dollars for doing something 8-year old kids can do? No. Answering a few yes/no questions and sharing a link across social media are hardly worth a dime, you see what I mean? You haven't done anything job's worth, you don't deserve the money!
...And You Are Worth More Than This!
You might find a lot more time for yourself at home right now due to the pandemic, and perhaps you've been looking to find some alternative ways to earn extra income for the first time. Then read on, because you have an ability to learn the techniques and put in your effort. You may have the time, but you don't have time to waste on something meaningless like Paid2Share. You and your time are worth more than this.
There Is NO Online Job For Everyone
One thing you ought to remember is, NO website offers a decent job to pay a decent salary. Think about it, in order to get a local job, you first find a position, apply for the position, send a résumé, attend the job interview... And it's their decision whether to pick you. The same applies to online jobs - if you want to be hired by someone, you go through the same process. Any online job that advertises "anyone can do it, no experience required" is either a scam or only pays a few cents. Never expect online jobs to be any easier than offline jobs.
Running a Work-From-Home Business
So the only way to make money is by running your own business. You don't have to sell anything or have your own products like "business owners" do. Affiliate marketing - where you share the knowledge that you already have and promote your favorite brands or any products from Amazon, Walmart, ClickBank...to earn commissions using a website.
Affiliate marketing allows you to start initially with zero investment, then spend very little (on website hosting and some useful web tools). It won't happen overnight - nothing will. But the more experience you gain, the more solid your asset (i.e. your trustworthiness as well as your website authority) will become, hence more money. It means earlier you start, the better, you see.
