The platform is part of a huge network of scams which have been scamming thousands of unsuspecting people for many months now.
In this review, I will go over exactly what Paid 4 Clout really is, how it works (or to be more accurate, doesn’t work), and why it might be of your best interest to steer clear of it… This way, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about whether that platform is worth your time and attention or not.
Spoiler alert: It’s NOT!
And you are about to find out why…

What is Paid 4 Clout About?
Paid 4 Clout presents itself as a 100% legit platform which will help you earn money through your social media by inviting your friends and followers to join the platform through your unique Paid 4 Clout influencer link as well as for completing a variety of other very simple tasks which require no previous experience whatsoever.
More specifically, Paid 4 Clout claims that you’ll earn
- $25 just for signing up
- $2 for each person who clicks on your Paid 4 Clout referral link
- an additional $10 for each person who joins Paid 4 Clout after clicking on your referral link
- $30 for filling in surveys and entering contests
- $10 for installing applications on your mobile phone
- $50 for creating YouTube videos promoting Paid 4 Clout
Okay, everything sounds pretty simple and straightforward up until this point right?
Almost too good to be true someone could say…
Well, the problem is that Paid 4 Clout never intends to let you get your hands on the money you’ve earned fair and square through it in the first place…
This solves the puzzling question “Why the heck would Paid 4 Clout pay me so much money for doing so little?”
They really won’t!
Let me explain further…
How Does Paid 4 Clout Work?
First of all, Paid 4 Clout lures you in with the promise of a “limited time” $25 sign up bonus…
Many people join Paid 4 Clout thinking that they can get their hands on that $25 bonus right after creating their account.
This is exactly how I ended up joining Viral Pay, a scam identical to Paid 4 Clout, for the first time a few months ago.
However, in order to qualify to cash out any of your Paid 4 Clout earnings, you need to
- refer at least 5 people to the platform
- complete at least 5 tasks on the $30 TaskWall
- have at least 20 clicks on your unique referral link
Some people will quit Paid 4 Clout once they realize that they have to actually work a little bit more to get the $25 signup bonus they were promised. What’s pretty funny is that those are actually the lucky ones.
However, there are others who will say “What the hell, the tasks I have to complete to qualify for payment 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 end up being scammed.
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 Paid 4 Clout will ban their account the moment they request a payment using as an excuse that they faked their clicks and referrals.
This way, the only winner out of this pathetic charade is Paid 4 Clout.
- First, it lures you in with a $25 signup bonus
- Then it tells you that in order to get your signup bonus you need to meet certain criteria (get 20 clicks on your referral link, 5 referrals, complete 5 tasks)
- It also tells you that for every click, referral, and task completed you’ll earn even more money
- So, you start trying to meet those criteria in order to qualify for a payment as well as increase your earnings
- When you finally meet every single one of those criteria and you request for the money you’ve earned fair and square, they kick you out leaving you high and dry
This way, Paid 4 Clout got you to complete several tasks which bring money to its owners as well as drive more people to the platform which will, in turn, complete even more tasks which will, in turn, bring even more money to Paid 4 Clout’s owners and all that, without having to pay anyone a single dime for their work.
Pretty appalling right?
Well, this is it… This is how Paid 4 Clout works or to be more accurate, doesn’t work.
Get this very well in your head, Paid 4 Clout will NEVER pay you a single dime! You will NEVER earn any money with it! Trying to make Paid 4 Clout work is just a waste of your time and energy.
Who is Paid 4 Clout for?
Paid 4 Clout is for no one… The platform is inherently 100% useless.
The chances of earning money online by lying on your couch staring at the ceiling all day long are so much more than the chances of earning money with Paid 4 Clout.
In fact, I am so confident that you won’t be able to earn even a single penny with Paid 4 Clout 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 Paid 4 Clout NOT for?
Paid 4 Clout is definitely NOT for people who want to earn money online.
- want to build a full-time income online to quit your job
- are in need of some extra money to provide for your family
- are working a part-time job and need a supplementary income to cover your expenses
- want to gain the freedom to work whenever you want and from wherever you want in order to be able to travel around the world
- have tried other MMO and GPT platforms and systems but failed to meet your financial goals and you are still looking for the real deal
- aren’t working at all and you are looking for a way to build your primary source of income online

Account Manager Skype
A Skype address (@cam.p4c) of an “account manager” to contact when you need answers or require support regarding Paid 4 Clout.
The address is actually fake so don’t expect that you’ll get neither.
Redirects you to a page where you can find several screenshots of payments made from Paid 4 Clout to its influencers.
Just a heads up, every single one of those payment proofs is fake.
Let me explain…
As you can see in the images below, the exact payment screenshots that have been used for Paid 4 Clout have also been used as payment proofs for several of its sister scams such as CloutShare, ReferralPay, and Viral Points.
Furthermore, as you can see in the image below, the domain name paid4clout.com was registered on the 12th of July 2019.
This means that the platform didn’t even exist before 12/07/2019 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 Paid 4 Clout was paying people before it even existed or all its payment proofs are fake.
In an attempt to further increase its trustworthiness, Paid 4 Clout has also published several positive video testimonials on its website and more specifically on paid4clout.com/video-testimonials.
All of those testimonials are fake as well.
First of all, if you take a closer look at the titles of the videos they are all about Clout Pay which is actually Paid 4 Clout’s predecessor. The people who have recorded the testimonials also mention “Clout Pay” and not “Paid 4 Clout” during their videos.
More importantly, those positive testimonials have been recorded by paid actors and not people who have actually used the platform.
Take a look at the video below which is one of the positive testimonials on Paid 4 Clout’s website.
If you take a look at the image below, you’ll see that this guy is actually offering his spokesperson services as a freelancer on Fiverr.
This means that Paid 4 Clout or Clout Pay or whoever, has paid him to record a video saying whatever they want.
After digging around for a while, I managed to locate some authentic Paid 4 Clout testimonials of people who have actually tried the platform.
You can see them right below.
How Much Does Paid 4 Clout Cost?
Paid 4 Clout is free to join.
However, it’s not 100% free to use.
You see, in order to complete some of the tasks on its $30 TaskWall, you’ll be asked to submit your mobile phone number and subscribe to various very pricey text message services which 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 such services, I would never trust a scammy platform such as Paid 4 Clout 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 accounts by people you don’t know, don’t even think about it.
Plus, if you consider that Paid 4 Clout 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.
Paid 4 Clout Pros
- Free to join
1 • Free to Join
The only thing I like about Paid 4 Clout is that it’s free to join.
This way, if someone decides to give it a try they will just waste some of their time and not any of their money until they realize that the platform is a scam which never intended to pay them in the first place.
Paid 4 Clout Cons
- Has just one pro
- Unrealistic claims
- Additional charges to complete tasks
- Fake contact information
- Fake payment proofs and testimonials
- Unable to cashout
- Potential hacking danger
1 • Has Just One Pro
The fact that Paid 4 Clout’s only pro is that it’s free to join just bums me out…
2 • Unrealistic Claims
Just like the majority of completely useless MMO platforms do, Paid 4 Clout employs a ton of unrealistic earning claims in order to convince people to join it.
The first thing that you’ll see when you land on Paid 4 Clout’s website is a huge banner saying “Make $500 Today”…
Earning $500 online in one day could be possible only for established digital marketers with a ton of experience. It’s impossible for a beginner with no experience and no targeted audience to make that kind of money online in just a day, or even a month to be truthful.
Nonetheless, since Paid 4 Clout will never actually pay you a single dime, the level of your experience with digital marketing doesn’t really matter.
No person can ever make money with Paid 4 Clout, neither beginners nor advanced digital marketers.
Furthermore, Paid 4 Clout claims to be operating since 2015, having paid $44 million to 300k of its members since then.
First of all, Paid 4 Clout is operating since 12/07/2019… At the time of this review (19/09/2019), Paid 4 Clout is just 2 months old…
Secondly, it’s really impossible for a 2-month-old platform to have paid so much money to so many people in such a short period of time…
And even if had, if you do the math, $44 million to 300k members equal to $147 per member. That’s not that much money.
3 • Additional Charges
As I’ve mentioned earlier, in order to qualify for a cashout of your Paid 4 Clout earnings you need to complete at least 5 tasks on its $30 TaskWall.
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 will probably rip you off…
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 attempting to complete tasks in order to qualify for your first Paid 4 Clout cashout which is never going to actually take place because Paid 4 Clout will ban your account once you request it.
Stay away, people!
4 • Fake Contact Information
Paid 4 Clout provides two email addresses (email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org) as well as a Skype address (@cam.p4c) to contact in case you need answers or support.
However, I checked both of those email addresses with an email checker software to see if they are valid or not, and as it turns out, they are not (see images below).
The Skype address is fake as well… A simple Skype search for that contact proves it.
Subsquently, Paid 4 Clout offers no support whatsoever.
I would expect nothing less from such a shitty platform.
5 • Fake Payment Proofs and Testimonials
I really hate it when crappy platforms such as Paid 4 Clout try to trick people into joining and using them by employing fake success stories, fake testimonials, and fake payment screenshots.
First of all, the fake payment screenshots that Paid 4 Clout 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 publish some real ones!
Secondly, the fact that Paid 4 Clout’s creators have published fake positive testimonials shows that they know their platform sucks so bad that it would never get authentic positive testimonials from people who have actually tried it.
Lastly, according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), using fake positive testimonials/success stories is considered illegal and subject to huge penalties as it encourages customers to invest in a product or service they otherwise wouldn’t if those fake testimonials/success stories didn’t exist, thereby defrauding them.
6 • Unable to Cashout
The biggest con of Paid 4 Clout is that it will never let you get your hands on the money you’ve earned with it.
Even if it didn’t have any other cons and like a thousand more pros, this con alone beats the whole purpose of joining and using the platform in the first place.
Trying to make money with Paid 4 Clout would be like trying to hammer a nail to the wall with a sponge – it’s just pointless…
7 • Potential Hacking Danger
So, the other day, I tried to complete one of Paid 4 Clout’s TaskWall tasks which didn’t require me to submit any personal info, mobile phone, or credit card number.
It was actually a survey.
However, before I even got to access it, my antivirus went off giving me the alert below…
As it seems, Paid 4 Clout’s tasks lead to 3rd party websites which contain viruses which 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, credit cards, or even your bank accounts.
If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed make sure to stay clear of Paid 4 Clout 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 Paid 4 Clout review in its entirety…
