Is InboxPays legit? Will they really pay you money and send cash to your inbox? Read all about the Inbox Pays scam to find out.
Inbox Pays — How It Works
Signing up to Inbox Pays is easy. You have to enter some basic information. You will be shown pages of offers as part of the signup process, but you can click the “skip” button on the bottom of each page until they end. After completing your registration, you will earn a $5 bonus.
Inbox Pays offers a number of ways to make money online. There are three main ways, and here they are.
#1: Sign Up to Offers. When you sign up to offers, you will get paid some cash as a reward. These offers include subscriptions to other survey panels, trying out free offers, and signing up to a mailing list.
#2: Spin the Arrow: You can spin the arrow and get a chance to win some cash. I spinned the arrow two time: The first time I won 10 cents and the second time I won one dollar. In order to be able to spin the arrow, you need to get points by completing offers similar to what was mentioned above.
#3: Read Emails: By clicking on the links in the emails that Inbox Pays sends you, you will earn between a few cents and 25 cents per email.
Will Inbox Pays Really Pay You?
In order to get paid by Inbox Pays, you need to have earned a minimum of $50. That’s a lot of money, and most people will never reach that amount. Furthermore, there are more restrictions: You need to have earned no less than $25 from signing up to offers/spinning the arrow and no more than $25 from reading and clicking on emails.
I would not be so confident that Inbox Pays will actually pay you. According to the BBB, they have received several complaints since March 2015 about people not being paid what was owed them.
The complaints center around two issue: One, that Inbox Pays never sent them payment, and never replied to people who contacted them; Two, that when people were approaching $50 in earnings, Inbox Pays suddenly blocked their account and never let them finish earning.
Inbox Pays — Suspicious Testimonials
Look at this testimonial (from Inbox Pays’ website), where this person gives Inbox Pays a good review.
Sounds nice? Well, look at this testimonial, from Panda Research’s website!
The same person, the same picture, and the same exact wording. Only the company is different. (InboxPays doesn’t even offer surveys.)
What does this mean? I don’t know what it means. It could mean that both companies found this person on Fiverr or somewhere else and paid them to do a testimonial. It could also be that one company copied the other company’s testimonial. In any case, it definitely smells bad. It definitely looks suspicious.
So, Is Inbox Pays a Scam? Can It Really Be True?
I certainly would stay away from Inbox Pays. It has a bad reputation with the BBB for not paying its members, it has a suspicous testimonial, and it sets such difficult regulations for getting paid.
