A few days ago, you signed up for StudentsEarnCash.co hoping to make some extra money online from home.
However, something about the platform doesn’t quite add up…
As such, you decided to do your due diligence.
If that’s the case, you’re definitely in the right place!
By the end of this StudentsEarnCash.co Review, you’ll have fully understood why StudentsEarnCash is NOT what it claims to be and why it’s in your best interest to stay as far away from this platform as possible.
Let me explain further…
What is StudentsEarnCash?
StudentsEarnCash is a GPT (Get Paid To) platform that promises to pay you a lot of money for completing simple tasks such as installing apps, filling in surveys, playing online games, and making referrals.
However, contrary to legit GPT platforms such as Swagbucks and PrizeRebel, StudentsEarnCash will lie to you, scam you, and never pay you a single dime.
As a matter of fact, as you’ll find out later on, StudentsEarnCash is part of an enormous network of dozens of nearly identical platforms that have scammed thousands of people during the last few years.
If you’ve already signed up and used the platform, then I am sorry but you have completely wasted your time.
If not, do yourself a favor and start running in the opposite direction.
Let me explain further how the StudentsEarnCash scam works.
How The StudentsEarnCash Scam Works
First, StudentsEarnCash.co lures you in with a $50 signup bonus and promises of paying you a crapload of money for completing simple tasks, such as
- Installing applications
- Filling in surveys
- Making referrals
- Signing up for free trials
- Promoting it on social media
- & more
However, StudentsEarnCash will NEVER really pay you any of the money it promises.
That’s the case because the sole purpose of StudentsEarnCash is to generate money for its owners.
For example, every task within StudentsEarnCash that involves installing an app, completing a survey, submitting an email/phone number, and signing up for a free trial is a CPA (Cost Per Action) offer.
Every time you or somebody else completes one of those CPA offers, StudentsEarnCash’s owners pocket money.
The rest of StudentsEarnCash ‘s tasks are geared towards attracting more members to it.
That’s because the more members StudentsEarnCash gathers, the more people will complete its CPA offers and refer even more people to it who will, in turn, complete even more of its CPA offers and refer even more people to it, and so on.
For instance, StudentsEarnCash.co claims that it’ll pay you $2 per referral link click to get you to share your referral link with as many people as possible.
The more people you share your referral link with, the more people could end up joining the platform.
Likewise, StudentsEarnCash supports that it’ll pay you $15 per referral to encourage you to refer more people to it.
Similarly, StudentsEarnCash.co promises to pay you up to $30 for promoting it on various social media platforms such as YouTube and TikTok to make you attract even more potential victims through them…
Now, every time you complete one of its tasks, StudentsEarnCash will increase your “account balance” based on the amount of money that task was worth.
For instance, if you make a referral, StudentsEarnCash will credit your balance with $15.
However, in reality, that’s just to trick you into believing that you’re making progress so that you’ll keep investing time and energy in completing more of its tasks and making more referrals.
That’s because the more tasks you complete and the more referrals you make, the more money StudentsEarnCash’s owners will ultimately pocket.
Lastly, StudentsEarnCash states that to let you cash out your “earnings” you’ll have to get at least 25 clicks on your referral link, make at least 5 referrals, publish at least 10 promotional posts, as well as complete at least 6 tasks.
However, those “cashout requirements” are just StudentsEarnCash’s way of ensuring that you’ll complete at least a few of its tasks and make a couple of referrals before you realize that it’s a scam.
Pretty evil, right?
Well, this is it… This is exactly how StudentsEarnCash scams people.
Get this very well in your head, StudentsEarnCash.co will NEVER pay you a single dime. You will NEVER earn any money with it.
If you value your time and energy, I suggest that you stay as far away from that sh*thole as possible!
1. Free to Join
The only upside of StudentsEarnCash.co is that anyone can join it for free.
Everything just goes downhill from there…
1. It'll Ban Your Account
Not only StudentsEarnCash.co will NEVER pay you, but after requesting a cashout of your earnings, it’ll shut down your account using as an excuse that you committed fraud and that all your clicks and referrals were fake.
This is the actual message they’ll send you:
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, if you try to contact its Fraud Department as suggested, you’ll hit a dead-end because all the contact information on its website is fake (more on that later on).
Seriously, you have way more chances of having $1.000.000 landing on your lap while lying on your couch staring at the ceiling all day long than earning just $1 with StudentsEarnCash.
In fact, I am so confident that StudentsEarnCash.co will never pay you a single dime that if it does, please contact me with proof and I’ll deposit $1000 more in your account just for being wrong…
2. Fake Testimonial
In an attempt to trick potential victims that it’s legit, on its homepage, StudentsEarnCash has posted a fake positive testimonial (see below).
The testimonial was supposedly left by a woman named “Kim” who has been a member of StudentsEarnCash since 2016.
However, as you can see in the image below, StudentsEarnCash was launched on the 1st of October 2020.
3. Fake "As Seen On"
To further boost its credibility, on its homepage, StudentsEarnCash claims that it has been featured by major online publications such as Buzzfeed, SaveTheStudent, ThePennyHoarder, ABC, and The Huffington Post.
However, after conducting searches on all of the aforementioned publications, I didn’t find a single mention of StudentsEarnCash.co by any of them (images below).
4. Fake Social Media Pages
On StudentsEarnCash’s homepage, there are a bunch of social media buttons that’ll supposedly take you to the platform’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest pages.
However, almost all the buttons (except the Pinterest one) redirect to non-existent pages.
The Pinterest button takes you to a Pinterest page that belongs to CashJunky, which is one of StudentsEarnCash’s sister scams.
5. Fake Contact Information
Another sign that StudentsEarnCash.co is a scam is that all its contact information is fake.
For example, if you try to contact your “account manager” through Skype, you’ll never receive a reply.
Moreover, StudentsEarnCash’s community chat is said to be down due to supposed scheduled maintenance.
However, I’ve never actually seen it operating since I first came across the platform a month ago.
That’s really no surprise…
After investigating the source code of the page that contains the chat, I found out that it consists of static HTML code.
This basically means that StudentsEarnCash’s community chat isn’t really a chat and that all the messages you see there have been planted by StudentsEarnCash’s owners to trick you into believing that the platform is active and legitimately paying its members a lot of money.
Plus, I recently found out that an identical locked“chat” is also being used by one of StudentsEarnCash’s sister scams called “CashJunky“.
6. Unknown Owners
Another red flag that StudentsEarnCash.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 who owns and runs it.
7. Fake Company
On its “About Us” page, StudentsEarnCash claims that it’s a subsidiary of StudentsEarnCash, PTY a leading internet and media company located in El Segundo, California.
However, after looking around a bunch of US-based business databases I found no company registered under the name StudentsEarnCash, PTY.
Also, the “PTY” abbreviation is used only by companies located in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa.
As such, StudentsEarnCash, PTY is obviously a made-up company.
8. Potential Hacking Danger
Every time I attempt to visit StudentsEarnCash.co, my antivirus blocks access to the website due to potential data loss (image below).
What this means is that accessing StudentsEarnCash might infect your devices with viruses that could enable hackers to get their hands on personal data and sensitive information of yours, such as
- social media accounts
- credit cards
- bank accounts
If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed, make sure to steer clear of StudentsEarnCash 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 to ensure that it hasn’t been compromised.
9. Part of a Huge Scam Network
StudentsEarnCash 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 same scamming techniques.
Some of StudentsEarnCash’s sister scams that you might have heard of are:
- Kids Earn Money
- and CashJunky
just to name a few.
Right below you can see for yourself how StudentsEarnCash is basically a clone of CashJunky.
10. BBB Consumer Alert
In March 2019, the BBB (Better Business Bureau) issued consumer alerts for Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash, both of which are StudentsEarnCash’s sister scams.
According to BBB, between January 4 and March 13, 2019, BBB Metro New York received several complaints and scam reports regarding Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash.
After conducting an investigation, BBB concluded that the unrealistic earning claims both those platforms made were in violation of BBB’s Code of Advertising.
BBB attempted to locate the owners of the platforms through email, telephone number, and/or physical address to sort things out but without any luck.
At that point, BBB rated both Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash with an “F” suggesting to the public that they should stay as far away as possible from them.
According to BBB, people who sign up for Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash think that they are online marketing agencies that will pay them money for 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 supports that the 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 what people who have been scammed by Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash have to say about the platforms on BBB.
You can take a look at all the complaints about Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash by following the two links right below:
While the fact that BBB has issued consumer alerts for Kids Earn Money and Notion Cash doesn’t quite prove that StudentsEarnCash 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 same people would actually pay you any money?
Because I definitely wouldn’t…
