About a month ago, I came across EarnAndGo.co
I was on YouTube when I saw a video of a guy who claimed that he made $500 in just one day with EarnAndGo by completing some simple tasks as well as referring his Instagram friends to the platform.
At that point, I decided to join EarnAndGo and see for myself what it is about.
I did the work I was supposed to do, I requested a cashout of my earnings and EarnAndGo told me that I’ll receive my money on the 10th of February 2020.
However, it’s now the 17th of February and EarnAndGo hasn’t paid me a single dollar.
I started becoming suspicious that EarnAndGo might be a scam so I started conducting some research…
As it turns out, EarnAndGo.co is indeed a scam!
After finding out, I decided to put together this review in order to expose all of EarnAndGo’s dirty little secrets so that you can understand why it’s of your best interest to stay as far away from this god-awful platform as possible.
Furthermore, in an attempt to point you in the right direction, I am going to let you know about a couple of alternative much more legit and promising opportunities for earning money online.
Right, so, let’s start diving deeper.
Name: EarnAndGo Pty Ltd.
- Free to join
- Additional expenses to complete most tasks
Official Website: earnandgo.co
Suggested? Do NOT even think about it…
What is EarnAndGo About?
Is EarnAndGo.co Legit?
EarnAndGo.co poses as a GPT (Get Paid To) platform…
GPT platforms are basically websites that pay you for completing simple tasks, such as
- filling in surveys
- installing apps
- watching ads
- making referrals
Truthfully, I’ve come across a lot of legit GPT platforms such as Survey Junkie, Inbox Dollars, and Swagbucks but unfortunately, EarnAndGo is definitely NOT one of them.
You see, contrary to legit GPT platforms that actually pay their members for their efforts, EarnAndGo is just a huge waste of time that will never pay you a single dime.
If you’ve already signed up and used the platform, then I am sorry but you have completely wasted your time…
If you haven’t joined EarnAndGo yet but you were about to, do yourself a favor and start running as far away from this platform as possible.
Before I reveal to you everything about EarnAndGo, such as the fact that it is part of a huge network of identical scams that have already scammed millions of people over the last few years, I think that it’s important for you to understand how EarnAndGo.co scams people.
And in order for you to understand how EarnAndGo scams people, you first need to understand how this platform generates money for its owners.
How EarnAndGo Generates Money for its Owners
EarnAndGo.co generates money through CPA (Cost Per Action) offers.
Basically, CPA offers pay publishers (e.g. EarnAndGo.co) commissions for getting other people (e.g. you & me) to perform certain actions, such as
- Submitting an email or telephone number
- Filling out a form
- Installing an application
- Signing up for a trial
- Completing a survey
The CPA offers through which EarnAndGo.co generates its money are located on its “$50 TaskWall”, which is a page comprised of a number of tasks that supposedly pay you up to $100 for completing them (see image below).
As you can see in the image right above, one task requires you to “Enter and confirm your phone number”, the other to “Sign up to the platform and fill in your profile”, and the other to “Create an account and complete the tutorial”.
Each one of those tasks is actually a CPA offer.
This means that every time somebody completes one of the tasks on EarnAndGo’s’ $50TaskWall, a CPA network pays the owners of EarnAndGo money.
Okay, now that you know, let’s see how EarnAndGo actually scams people.
How EarnAndGo.co Scammed Me
So, first of all, EarnAndGo.co baited me in by promising to pay me $50 just for signing up and by claiming that I could hundreds of dollars per day with it.
Come on, who wouldn’t want to make an instant $50 & hundreds of dollars in just one day, am I right?
I took the bait and signed up for EarnAndGo.co
Once I was in, I instantly started trying to figure out how to earn money.
According to EarnAndGo.co, the platform would pay me
- $2 for each click I get on my unique referral link
- an additional $10 for each person who joins EarnAndGo after clicking on my unique referral link
- 20% of all money earned by my referrals
- up to $100 for each task I complete on its $50 TaskWall
- $25 for reading, sharing, and commenting on reviews
- $25 – $30 for creating YouTube/TikTok videos promoting the platform
- $15 – $20 for publishing promotional posts on Facebook/Instagram
I completed a few of those tasks in just 1-2 hours, generated about $200 and immediately requested a cashout of my earnings and my $50 signup bonus.
However, to my surprise, EarnAndGo.co told me that in order to qualify for a cashout I’d first need to
- Refer at least 5 people to the platform
- Complete at least 5 of the tasks on its $50 TaskWall
- Have at least 20 clicks on my unique referral link
Anyway, I eventually met all those requirements and I finally requested a cashout of my money… Yayyy!
EarnAndGo even gave me a payment number and told me that my payment is going to take place on the 10th of February 2020…
The problem is that a week has passed from the day that EarnAndGo.co was supposed to pay me but I still hadn’t received a single dollar.
And not only that but I later realized that EarnAndGo.co had actually banned my account using as an excuse that my clicks and referrals were fake (message right below):
While attempting to submit your payments, our system has deemed some or all of your stats to be unauthentic, Due to that, your payment has been canceled, and your account is pending termination.
Your account will be terminated within 7 days. If you would like to start over the AUTHENTIC way, then you are welcome to do that.
If you think, that was a mistake, you can contact our Fraud Department.
Now, I tried to contact EarnAndGo’s Fraud Department as suggested, but I hit yet another dead-end because nobody would get back to me (EarnAndGo’s contact information is actually fake but more on that later on.
I had officially been scammed and was literally nothing I could do about it and no one to talk to regarding my banned account and not receiving my money.
The reason that EarnAndGo.co scams people like that it twofold:
- to get people to generate money for its owners by completing its CPA offers
- and to get people to promote the platform
Think about it…
First, EarnAndGo promises a $50 signup bonus and earning a lot of money fast and easy.
Once you join, it tells you that in order to cash out your money you will need to meet the following requirements
- get 20 clicks on your referral link
- make 5 referrals
- and complete 5 tasks
You start working to meet those cashout requirements.
You complete the 5 tasks which are basically CPA offers -> EarnAndGo’s owners earn money
You make 5 referrals-> Those 5 referrals will, in turn, complete at least 5 more of its tasks and refer at least 5 more people each, and so on, and so forth…
You create videos promoting EarnAndGo.co on YouTube, TikTok, etc in order to generate more money -> You draw even more people into the scam
When you finally request a cashout, you’ll receive $0 and an account ban because you already did all the work EarnAndGo wanted you to do completely for free.
Pretty evil, right?
Well, this is it… This is how and why EarnAndGo.co scams people!
Get this very well in your head, EarnAndGo will NEVER pay you a single dime. You will NEVER earn any money with it.
If you value your time, energy, and money, stay as far away from EarnAndGo.co as possible!
Who is EarnAndGo.co for?
I don’t know who EarnAndGo could be for but I know for a fact that it’s definitely not for those who are after earning money online.
Seriously, you have way more chances of earning $1.000.000 by lying down on your couch staring at the ceiling all day long than earning just $1 with EarnAndGo.
In fact, I am so confident that you won’t be able to earn even a single penny with EarnAndGo.co that if you do, you can contact me with proof and I will deposit $100 more right in your account just for being wrong…
How Much Does EarnAndGo.co Cost?
EarnAndGo.co is free to join.
However, be aware that you might end up losing quite a lot of money while actually trying to make money with the platform.
For instance, as mentioned earlier, some of the tasks on its $50 TaskWall will require you to submit your mobile phone number.
If you do that, you’ll automatically subscribe to various very pricey text message services that will keep forwarding you dozens of promotional text messages per month at your own cost.
And those text messages aren’t cheap at all.
Just one text message could cost up to $5 and sometimes even more.
Despite the fact that there are probably ways to unsubscribe from those text message services, I would never trust a scammy platform such as EarnAndGo with my mobile phone number.
Furthermore, other tasks might ask you to fill in your credit card or bank account information.
If you don’t want to end up having money sucked out of your bank accounts by people you don’t know for things you didn’t even buy, do NOT even think about it!
Plus, if you consider that EarnAndGo will never actually pay you, there’s really no point whatsoever in even bothering to complete its tasks in the first place.
1 • Free to Join
If I just had to choose something that I like about EarnAndGo, I would say that I like that it’s free to join.
Believe it or not, I have come across online scams that require you to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars just to get in only to realize in the hindsight that you got scammed.
EarnAndGo.co doesn’t have any admission fees so if you don’t submit your mobile phone number or credit card info anywhere within the platform you won’t waste any money.
That’s something, I guess…
1 • EarnAndGo Testimonials = Fake
In an attempt to trick more into thinking that it’s legit, EarnAndGo.co has also published a number of fake positive testimonials.
For instance, take a look at the two testimonials below that can be found on EarnAndGo’s home page.
“So, why are those two testimonials fake?”, you ask…
Well, that’s a great question!
As you can see, the first testimonial was supposedly published by a guy called “Druski Too Funny” and the second one by a guy called “HahaDavis”.
Both Druski Too Funny and HahaDavis are actual Instagram comedians.
So, I decided to reach out to them to ask if they had really left those testimonials on EarnAndGo or not.
Both of them told me that they knew nothing about EarnAndGo.co and that those testimonials were fake.
Furthermore, throughout YouTube and TikTok, you’ll find dozens of positive video testimonials of members of the platform claiming that they have earned hundreds of dollars with it.
All those video testimonials are fake too as they were recorded by people because EarnAndGo.co promised to pay them $25 & $30 dollars to do so (images below).
3 • Unrealistic Claims
Just like the majority of online scams do, EarnAndGo.co makes a lot of fake claims in an attempt to raise its credibility and draw more victims in…
On its “About Us” page, EarnAndGo.co claims that it has been operating since 2015 in order to make people think that it has been around for many years (image below).
However, this is a lie because as you can see in the image below, the domain name earnandgo.co was first registered on the 18th of October 2019 something that proves that EarnAndGo didn’t exist before that date.
In addition, EarnAndGo goes on to claim that Forbes has named it“The #1 Social Network”.
A simple Google search for the term “Forbes + EarnAndGo”, is enough to debunk this claim.
Plus, let’s not kid ourselves here…
If Forbes was to name EarnAndGo something, it would probably name it the most worthless platform of the decade.
4 • Additional Charges
EarnAndGo might be free to join but as I already talked about, but in order to qualify for your first cashout, you need to complete at least 5 tasks on its $50 TaskWall.
The problem is that in order to complete some of those tasks, you’ll be required to submit your phone number and agree to subscribe to paid text-message services which could cost you a ton of money.
Other tasks might ask you to fill in your credit card or bank account info and then start charging you for random products and digital services you never actually bought.
This way you could end up losing a ton of money while trying to qualify for your first cashout which is never going to actually take place…
Stay away, people!
5 • Fake Contact Information
As mentioned earlier, after I requested my first cashout, EarnAndGo.co informed me that my clicks and referrals were fake, banned my account, and told me that if I thought that this was a mistake, I should contact their “Fraud Department”.
And so I did!
EarnAndGo provides 2 email addresses in order to contact them (email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org).
A week ago I sent a couple of emails to both of those email addresses but I still haven’t received a single answer to this day.
So, I decided to run both of those email addresses through email-checker.net and as it turns out that both of them are fake (images below).
On their “Contact Us” page, EarnAndGo also provides a physical address (Koningin Beatrixstraat 46, De Lier, Zuid-Holland 2678 EE, Netherlands).
Unfortunately, since I don’t live in the Netherlands, I can’t really confirm if EarnAndGo is really housed at the given address or not, but I’d bet $1000 that it’s not.
6 • Unknown Owners
Another pretty obvious sign that EarnAndGo.co is a scam is that it provides no information about its owners.
Scammers never reveal their identity in order to avoid being identified with their fraudulent activities and getting caught.
A legit website/company ALWAYS provides information about its owners.
7 • Unable to Cashout
As mentioned dozens of times throughout this review, EarnAndGo.co will never pay anyone a single dime for their work.
It doesn’t really matter if you refer 2000 people to the platform or complete 1 million of its tasks, EarnAndGo will never, ever, EVER, pay you a single dollar.
This beats the whole purpose of joining and using the platform in the first place.
Trying to make money with EarnAndGo is as pointless as trying to put out a fire by pouring gasoline on it.
8 • Potential Hacking Danger
The first thing that I did as soon as I joined EarnAndGo was to head over to its $50 TaskWall and complete a few of its tasks.
However, before I even got to access the first task, my antivirus went off giving me the alert below…
Apparently, EarnAndGo tasks lead to 3rd party websites that contain viruses that could infect your PC or mobile phone and enable hackers to get their hands on personal data and sensitive information of yours, such as the login credentials to your
- social media accounts
- credit cards
- bank accounts
If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed make sure to stay clear of EarnAndGo at all costs…
If you’ve already accessed the platform without having any protection in place, I’d suggest that you immediately purchase an antivirus and scan your entire system in order to ensure that it hasn’t been compromised and that your personal data and sensitive information are safe.
9 • Part of a Huge Scam Network
After looking around for a while, I found out that EarnAndGo isn’t the only #1 Influencer Network out there…
In fact, EarnAndGo.co is part of an enormous network of dozens of almost identical scams that have scammed millions of people during the last few years using the exact same scamming techniques.
Some of those scams that you might have heard of are
- Kids Earn Money
just to name a few.
10 • BBB Consumer Alert
In March 2019, the BBB (Better Business Bureau) issued consumer alerts for Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash.
Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash are both EarnAndGo’s sister scams.
According to BBB, between January 4 and March 13, 2019, BBB Metro New York received several complaints, negative reviews, and scam reports regarding Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash.
After conducting an investigation, BBB concluded that the unrealistic earning claims both those platforms make are in violation of BBB’s Code of Advertising.
BBB tried to locate someone in charge of those platforms through email, telephone number, and/or physical address to sort things out but without any luck.
At that point, BBB rated both of those platforms with an “F” suggesting to the public that they should stay as far away as possible from them.
According to BBB, people sign up to Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash thinking that they are online marketing agencies, where they will earn money by completing “tasks”. The money appears to increase on the platform’s dashboard after completing those tasks, but when the consumer tries to cash out their earnings, often when they reach some set requirements, they report that they are unable to retrieve the promised payment or contact the company for assistance.
BBB goes on to state that one possible purpose of such scams may be data harvesting, for the likely intent of selling the gathered information to spammers. There is also the possibility of identity theft.
Right below you can take a look at a few complaints left under the BBB profiles of Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash from people who have actually been scammed by the platforms.
You can take a look at all the complaints under the BBB profiles of Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash by following the links right below:
While the fact that BBB has issued consumer alerts for Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash doesn’t quite prove that EarnAndGo is a scam as well, would you trust that a platform that is operating exactly like Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash and created by the exact same people would ever pay you any money?
Because I definitely wouldn’t…
