Those scammy platforms trick you into thinking that you can earn thousands of dollars per month for completing very simple and effortless tasks only to find out later on not only that they never intended to actually pay you but also get your account banned due to “fraudulent activities”.
Anyway, in this review, I am going to let you know every little dirty secret of KashTree in order for you to be able to make an informed decision about whether this platform is worth investing your time and energy or not.
Spoiler alert: It’s NOT!
What is KashTree About?
KashTree basically poses as an MMO (Make Money Online) platform which claims to pay you a lot of money very fast by completing a number of very simple tasks which require no previous experience such as
- getting people to sign up to KashTree through a unique referral link the platform provides you
- publishing banners promoting KashTree on your social media
- filling in online surveys
- installing applications on your mobile phone
- entering contests
- etc, etc
More specifically, KashTree is supposed to pay you
- $25 just for signing up
- $2 for each person who clicks on your referral link
- an additional $25 for each person who signs up to KashTree after clicking on your referral link
- $40 for filling in surveys and entering contests
- $40 for installing applications on your mobile phone
- $50 for creating YouTube videos promoting KashTree
- $10 for submitting a promotional post on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter
Note: KashTree seems to be split testing the amount of money they pay per task so the numbers I mentioned right above might differ from time to time.
Up until this point, everything seems pretty straightforward… Almost too good to be true right?
Well, you got it!
KashTree is one of those platforms which will tell you everything you want to hear in an attempt to lure you in and then scam the shit out of you in every way you could possibly imagine!
Let me demonstrate exactly how KashTree works…
How Does KashTree Work?
First of all, KashTree lures people in with the promise of a $25 sign up bonus…
The majority of people will join KashTree only because they think that they can instantly get their hands on that $25 bonus once they create their account.
This is exactly how I ended up joining an identical scam, Viral Pay, a few months ago for the first time.
However, in order to qualify to cash out any of the money you’ve been credited by KashTree, you need to have
- referred at least 5 people to it
- completed at least 5 tasks on the $40 TaskWall
- been credited with at least $200
- gotten at least 20 clicks on your unique referral link
Some people will quit KashTree once they realize that they can’t have their $25 signup bonus right away. Those are the lucky ones.
However, there are others who will say “What the hell, the tasks I have to complete to qualify for a cashout are not so hard. Plus, I can earn even more money by completing them. Let’s give it a try!” … Those are the ones who get fucked.
They start devoting time and energy into referring people to the platform and completing tasks, thinking that the next time they hit that “Request Payment” button, they’ll get hundreds of dollars deposited in their bank account.
However, what they don’t know is that KashTree will ban their account the moment they request a payment using as an excuse that they faked their clicks and referrals.
This way, KashTree gets you to bring more people to it as well as complete several tasks which will bring money to its owners without having to pay you a single dime.
Pretty appalling right?
Well, this is it… This is how KashTree actually works or better doesn’t work.
- It lures you in with a $25 signup bonus and promises of earning a lot of money fast and without effort
- Then it tells you that in order to cash out the money you need to meet certain requirements (get 20 clicks on your referral link, 5 referrals, complete 5 tasks, earn at least $200)
- You start trying to meet those requirements in order to qualify for a payment
- When you finally meet every single one of those requirements and you request for the money you’ve earned fair and square, they kick you out leaving you high and dry
- In the meantime, every single task you completed brought KashTree’s owners more money
Get this very well in your head, KashTree will NEVER pay you a single dime!
Who is KashTree for?
KashTree is only for no one.
Seriously, the chances of earning money by lying on your couch, staring at the ceiling all day long are way more than the chances of actually earning money with KashTree.
If you don’t believe me, please be my guest and join KashTree right here!
And you know what?
I am so confident that you won’t be able to earn even a single penny with KashTree that if you do, you can contact me with proof and I will deposit $100 more right in your account just for being wrong…
Who is KashTree NOT for?
KashTree is absolutely NOT for those who are after earning money online for whatever reason.
Those could be people who
- Want to build a full-time income online to quit their job
- Work a part-time job and need a supplementary income to cover their expenses
- Are interested in becoming online business owners/entrepreneurs
- Want the freedom to work whenever they want and from wherever they want
- Are after building a stable income online in order to travel the world
- Need some extra money to provide for their family
- Have tried other MMO and GPT platforms and systems but failed to meet their financial goals
What's Inside KashTree?
KashTree basically consists of a main members’ dashboard (see image below).
On this dashboard, you’ll find
- your unique referral link
- an overview of the total clicks on your referral link
- the total number of people you have referred to KashTree
- the number of tasks you have completed
- the amount of money you’ve been credited
- a leaderboard
- a bunch of other navigational links and social media sharing buttons
On the very left of the dashboard, there is a menu which helps you navigate through the entire platform.
Below the menu you can find a Skype address of your account manager who you can contact when you have any questions or need support.
Let me shed a little light on each one of the menu’s sections individually.
Refer & Earn
This section contains your unique KashTree referral link, a bunch of social media sharing buttons to easily share it, as well as the names of the people who have joined KashTree through your referral link…
This is where you can access all the tasks that are available for you to complete in order to get credited with more money, such as filling in surveys, installing applications on your mobile phone, and participating in contests.
You need to complete at least 5 tasks from this section to qualify for your first cashout.

This section contains answers to some frequently asked questions people have about KashTree.
Account Manager Skype
A Skype address of an “account manager” to contact when you have any questions or require support.
The Skype address is actually fake so don’t expect that you’ll get neither answers nor support through it.
You can confirm that it’s fake with a simple Skype search for the username @kashtree.jessica.
KashTree Success Stories & Testimonials
KashTree’s website contains a number of payment proofs and positive testimonials about the platform.
Payment proofs -> kashtree.com/proof
Testimonials -> kashtree.com/video-testimonials
Just a heads up, every single one of those payment proofs is 100% fake.
I haven’t yet managed to confirm that the testimonials are fake too but in my eyes, since KashTree has used fake payment proofs, they most likely have used fake testimonials as well right?
Let me explain.
First of all, as you can see in the images below, all of those exact payment screenshots have been used as payment proofs for other similar scammy platforms such as SwagPay, ReferralPay, and Viral Points (left images = KashTree payment proofs, right images = Referral Pay, SwagPay, & Viral Points payment proofs).
In addition to that, as you can see in the image below, the domain name kashtree.com was registered on 11/08/2019.
This means that the platform didn’t even exist before 11/08/2019 and yet if you take a closer look, somehow all of the payment proofs above seem to have taken place before that date.
This could mean two things…
Either KashTree was paying people before it even existed or its payment proofs are fake…
What would you believe?
How Much Does KashTree Cost?
KashTree is free to join.
However, it’s not really free to use in its entirety.
You see, in order to be able to complete some of the tasks on the $40 TaskWall, you’ll be asked to submit your mobile phone number.
If you do so, you’ll start receiving dozens of promotional text messages per month by various services at your own cost. And those text messages don’t have a low cost at all. Just one of them could cost up to $5 and sometimes even more.
Despite the fact that there are probably ways to unsubscribe from those services, I would never trust my phone number to scammy platforms such as KashTree.
Plus, if you think about it since KashTree will ban your account the moment you request a cashout, there’s really no point whatsoever in trying to complete those tasks in the first place.
- Free to join
1 • Free to Join
The only pro that KashTree has, is that you don’t have to pay anything to actually join it.
This way, if you decide to give the platform a try, you’ll just waste some of your time and energy and not any of your money.
Be careful though not to submit your phone number anywhere within KashTree or you’ll probably end up wasting money as well after all.
- Has just one pro
- Unrealistic claims
- Fake payment proofs and testimonials
- Additional charges to complete tasks
- Fake support info
- Unable to cashout
- Potential hacking danger
1 • Has Just One Pro
The fact that the only KashTree pro is that it’s free to join just bums me out.
2 • Unrealistic Claims
Just like the majority of completely useless programs do, KashTree uses a lot of unrealistic earning claims in order to convince people to join it.
For example, the first thing that you’ll see when you land on KashTree’s website is a huge banner saying “Make $500 Today!” (see image below).
While earning $500 a day is not an impossible feat, you’ll need to either be a pro digital marketer or have thousands of followers on your social media in order to achieve so.
Besides that obvious defect, since KashTree will never actually pay you, it doesn’t really matter if you are the #1 digital marketer in the world or have like a billion followers, you will never earn $500 by using it, not today, and not in a thousand years.
In addition, on its “About Us” page, there is a claim that KashTree has been created in 2015. As we’ve already seen kashtree.com was registered on 11/08/2019 so the platform didn’t exist before that date.
Furthermore, on its KashTree claims to have paid $44 million to over 300K of its members. At the time of this review (3/9/2019), KashTree exists for only 20 days…
It’s 100% impossible that a 20-day old platform is able to pay so much money to so many people in such a short amount of time.
3 • Fake Payment Proofs & Testimonials
I really hate it when crappy platforms such as KashTree employ fake success stories, fake testimonials recorded by paid actors, and fake payment screenshots in an attempt to trick people into joining and using them.
First of all, the fake payment proofs that KashTree uses, prove that it indeed doesn’t pay its members… If it did, they wouldn’t publish fake payment proofs and risk their credibility and trustworthiness. They would just use some real ones!
Secondly, those fake payment proofs could entice tons of people to waste their time and energy into KashTree who otherwise wouldn’t if those payment proofs didn’t exist.
According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), using fake positive testimonials/success stories is considered a violation as it encourages customers to invest in a product or service they otherwise wouldn’t, thereby defrauding the customer, which is actually illegal and subject to huge penalties.
As for the KashTree’s positive testimonials, I wasn’t able to confirm that they were fake but since the payment proofs KashTree has used are indeed fake, chances are that their positive testimonials should also be fake.
4 • Additional Charges
Not only KashTree will never pay you, but you could also end up losing a lot of money until you actually realize that the platform is playing you.
You see, as I’ve mentioned earlier, in order to qualify for a cashout of your earnings you need to complete at least 5 tasks from the $40 TaskWall.
The problem is that in order to complete most 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 up to $50 dollars per month and maybe even more.
There are ways to unsubscribe from those services and stop being charged but would you trust KashTree with your phone number after all the crap that you’ve read until now?
I know I definitely wouldn’t…
5 • Fake Support Info
KashTree is supposed to offer support through a Skype address of an “account manager” as well as through the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
The Skype address of your account manager is fake and you can confirm that by searching for the contact @kashtree.jessica on Skype.
I also used an email checker to find out if the email address they provided was valid or not.
What amazed me is that contrary to the email addresses of all the other identical scams, KashTree’s email address is actually valid, as you can see in the image below.
Still, they never answer though so don’t expect any help or support from anyone.
After joining KashTree, you are all alone…
6 • Unable to Cashout
The biggest con of KashTree is that it will never let you get your hands on the money you’ve earned by referring people as well as completing tasks.
Even if it didn’t have any other cons and like a thousand more pros, this con alone beats the whole purpose of investing any time and energy in the platform in the first place.
Trying to make money with KashTree would be like buying a car with no wheels to go on a road trip – it’s just pointless…
7 • Potential Hacking Danger
I came across a survey on KashTree’s $40 TaskWall which didn’t require me to submit my phone number so I thought that I should give it a try to see what it’s about.
However, before I even got to access it, my antivirus went off giving me the alert below:
As it seems, some of KashTree’s tasks lead to 3rd party websites which contain viruses which could damage valuable files and information on your computer or phone.
However, the worst part is that those viruses could enable hackers to get their hands on personal data and sensitive information of yours such as the login credentials to your social media, email, or even your bank accounts.
If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed make sure to stay clear of KashTree at all costs…
If you’ve already accessed the platform without having any protection in place, you must immediately purchase an antivirus and scan your entire system in order to ensure that your computer hasn’t caught a virus and that your personal data and sensitive information are safe.
So, What Now?
Okay, so you read this KashTree review in its entirety…
Well, as I see it, right now you have 4 options…
- You either waste your time and effort trying to make money with KashTree (awful choice)
