Is a SCAM? You Won’t Believe It [10 SCAM Signs]

Is a SCAM You Won't Believe It [9 SCAM Signs]

A couple of weeks ago someone reached out to me asking if I had heard about a platform called

Apparently the platform claimed that it would pay him $300+ per day for watching ads for just a few hours…

Since it sounded way too good to be true, he was kind of alarmed that it could be a scam and asked me if I could conduct some research.

Shortly after, I joined to see for myself what it’s really about.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but after trying the platform out for a few hours, I concluded that is indeed a SCAM!

In an attempt to save as many people as possible from wasting their time, energy, and possibly money on this website, in this review, I am going to share with you my experience with as well as all the signs that it’s a scam.

Furthermore, I’m going to point you in the right direction by letting you know about a couple of alternative, much more legit, and promising opportunities for earning money online.

Right, so, let ‘s get started! Overview

Name: Pda Money


  • Unknown


  • Free to join
  • $20 for referrals (optional)
  • $10 for “quick account verification” (optional)

10 Signs Is a SCAM!

1 • Uses Excuses to NOT Pay You

The first and foremost sign that is a scam is that it uses a ton of excuses to NOT pay you…

For example, when I first joined it told me that in order to get paid, I’d have to generate a minimum of $150 by viewing ads (see image below).

First Cashout Requirement

When I met the $150 requirement, PdaMoney threw at my face a second cashout requirement out of nowhere, telling me that in order to get paid I’d have to refer at least 40 people to the platform (see image below).

Second Cashout Requirement

PdaMoney offered me the option to buy out those 40 referrals if I “experience difficulty” in getting them (image below).

Purchase Referrals Option

I decided to pay for the 40 referrals (it was about $20) to save some time and see if would really pay me.

However, after paying for the 40 referrals, threw yet another barrier in front of me, telling me that I needed to wait 30-60 days for my account to be approved (image below).

Third Cashout Requirement Account Not Approved

At this point, PdaMoney told me that instead of having to wait 30-60 days for my account to get approved, I could pay $10 for a “quick verification procedure” and get it approved in just 3-5 minutes (image below).

Quick Verification Process

I went ahead and paid $10 for the “quick verification procedure” dollars but guess what…

More than a week later hadn’t paid me a single dime yet…

At this point, I had to conclude that PdaMoney is a big fat scam that not only will NEVER pay you for your work but it will also try to steal your money!

Basically, that’s why promises to pay you a lot of money for doing practically nothing…

  1. to trick you into paying for the 40 referrals
  2. to trick you into paying for the quick account verification
  3. or to make you refer other people to it who will pay for their 40 referrals and their quick account verification

Get this very well in your head…

  • It doesn’t matter if you watch 1 million ads on PdaMoney
  • It doesn’t matter if you get 2000 referrals
  • It doesn’t matter if you pay $10 for the quick account verification

The amount of money you’ll receive from PdaMoney will always remain exactly the same no matter what you do – ZERO DOLLARS!

This should be enough to make you wanna stay away from for good.

If not, then keep reading…

2 • Fake "Support" Section

After realizing that is a scam, I decided to use its “Support” section to reach out to someone in charge of the platform and give them a piece of my mind…

So, I left a comment and waited…

I waited for about a week but I never received an answer.

I later found out that my comment had just magically disappeared…

PdaMoney’s Support section = Fake

Update: A lady who was scammed by PdaMoney contacted me and told me that after she paid for the 40 referrals she left a comment on PdaMoney’s support section asking when she’ll get her money… A while later she actually received the answer below:


Unfortunately, when adding referrals, there was a failure in the database
and your payment has been lost, there is, unfortunately, no chance to restore it.

We bring to you our deepest apologies and as compensation, we charge 150 dollars to your account.
We promise that this will not happen again.

To get referrals, you need to once again buy referrals on the exchange from any user.

After purchase, I personally check the purchase and transfer the referrals to your account within 10 minutes.
And you can immediately withdraw the money.

Yours faithfully
Martin Wood
Project Manager”

So basically, that woman not only spent a lot of time watching ads, not only spent $20 on the 40 referrals, but PdaMoney claimed that it “lost her payment”, whatever the f*ck that means, and told her that in order to get her money, she would have to purchase 40 more referrals…

Thankfully, she didn’t fall for that but nonetheless, I really can’t believe the nerve of those scammers…

3 • Fake Positive Testimonials

Under PdaMoney’s Support section I talked about right above, there are a number of comments supposedly left from other members of the platform that “required support”.

However, in reality, all of those comments have been planted there by PdaMoney to make potential victims think that the platform is indeed paying out big bucks to its members.

For instance, take a look at the comment below whereas KenTucky “complains” about receiving $3980 instead of $4000… Fake Comment 1

In reality, the purpose of that comment is to make other people think “Wow, this platform is legit… Look how much money KenTucky made!”

The exact same thing applies to the 2 comments right below. Fake Comment 2 Fake Comment 3

Rebirth “worries” about having to pay taxes for the $2000 – $3000 he supposedly earned with PdaMoney and Lizzie_Crowley wants to know how long it will take to receive her $2500 through bank transfer.

However, my favorite comment of all, the one which actually blows up right on PdaMoney’s face, is the last one, right below. Fake Comment 4

This specific comment includes a link to an image that depicts the receipt of payment that this member Jemma Ricker claims to have received by PdaMoney (see image below). Fake Payment Proof

As you saw in the image above, the payment seems to have been made in June 2017.

However, as you can see in the image right below, the domain name was first registered on the 11th of January 2020. Domain Name Registration Date

This means that PdaMoney didn’t even exist before that date and yet Jemma Ricker claims that the platform paid her more than 2 years earlier.

This could mean two things…

Either was paying people before it even existed (yeah right) or that this payment receipt is fake.

I’d bet on the latter.

Plus, if you take a closer look, there’s not a single indication on this payment receipt that the actual payer is PdaMoney.

And lastly, all the exact same comments, as well as the exact same payment proof, are being used by all of PdaMoney’s sister scams.

4 • No Contact Information

So, after figuring out that PdaMoney’s Support section was fake, I tried to locate another way to contact the platform’s support team…

However, not so surprisingly, provides no additional contact information whatsoever.

No email address, no telephone number, no social media pages or accounts, no Skype, no physical address, nothing…

Besides its main website, PdaMoney has no digital presence whatsoever.

This lack of contact information is one of the most obvious signs that PdaMoney is a scam.

Scammers always provide either fake or no contact information at all for obvious reasons…

5 • Unknown Owners

Another tattletale sign that 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.

6 • Part of a Network of Identical Scams

The 6th sign that is a scam is that it is part of a huge network of thousands of identical scams that have been wasting people’s time and money for years.

Some of PdaMoney’s sister scams are:

just to name a few.

Take a look at the images below to see for yourself how all these scams are basically clones of one another. Identical Scam Identical Scam Identical Scam

7 • Fake Leaderboard

On PdaMoney’s home page, there’s a leaderboard that supposedly displays the 50 people who have earned the most money with the platform during that day (image below)…

XYZ Fake Leaderboard

This leaderboard is 100% fake!

Its sole purpose is to manipulate you into thinking that other people are indeed getting paid good money by and bait you in…

“So, Why is this leaderboard fake?”, you ask?

Well, if you visit some of PdaMoney’s sister scams you’ll find out that on their home pages, every single one of them is using the exact same leaderboard, with the exact same names and the exact same earnings.

Leaderboard = Fake

7 • Fake News Section

In addition to the fake leaderboard, at the bottom left of PdaMoney’s home page, you’ll find a “News” section. Fake News Section

This News section is also fake and there to trick into thinking that the platform is actually active and legit…

First of all, take a look at the dates of each one of those news listings…

As we saw earlier on, PdaMoney started operating on the 11th of January 2020 and yet most of these “news updates” seem to have taken place before that date.

Apparently, PdaMoney is such a magical platform that got updated months before it even existed.

Furthermore, again all of PdaMoney’s sister scams are also using the exact same “News” section with the exact same updates and the exact same dates.

News section = Fake

Basically, keep your eyes open because everything that you’ll come across on PdaMoney’s website was intentionally planted there to deceive you.

8 • Unrealistic Claims

Just like every single online scam does, makes unrealistic claims in order to draw more victims in…

For instance, one of the first things you’ll see when you join the platform is that you can earn $50 – $300 daily by putting in just 3-5 hours of work. Unrealistic Claim 1

If earning $300 per day was possible by watching ads for 5 hours, there would be no poor people in the world…

That’s such an unrealistic claim it’s actually borderline funny xD goes on to claim that when you request a cashout of your earnings, you’ll receive them within 1 hour. Unrealistic Claim 2

Okay, first of all, there’s no online platform in the face of the earth that is able to pay you within just one hour after you request it…

Payments take several hours or even days to move from the sender’s to the receiver’s account as they have to be acknowledged, processed, confirmed, and then transferred to the final recipient.

Also, as mentioned multiple times until now, PdaMoney will never pay you – not in 1 hour, not in one century…

Please, do NOT fall for any of PdaMoney’s claims because the platform is NOT able to actually deliver any of them.

9 • Contains Viruses

Every time I attempt to visit PdaMoney’s website my antivirus goes off showing me the message below: Antivirus Alert

Apparently, PdaMoney contains 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
  • email
  • credit cards
  • bank accounts
  • etc

If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed on your devices, make sure to stay clear of 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.

Who Is For?

I don’t know who PdaMoney could be for but I know for a fact that if you want to earn money online, PdaMoney is definitely NOT for you.

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 PdaMoney.

In fact, I am so confident that you won’t be able to earn even a single penny with that if you do, you can contact me with proof and I will deposit $100 more right in your account just for being wrong… Review Summary



You’ll NEVER earn money with



Dashboard, referral link.

Value for


Free to join. Will try to steal your money & personal info. Contains viruses.



Fake “Support” section. No additional contact info whatsoever.



PdaMoney has NEVER anyone. And it’ll NEVER pay you either.

Overall Rating


Is Suggested? is only suggested for those whose goal is wasting their time, energy, and possibly money in a scam that’ll never pay them a single buck…

If you’ve already signed up and used the platform, then I am sorry but you have completely wasted your time for nothing…

If not, do yourself a favor and start running as far away from PdaMoney as humanly possible.
