As a reviewer, I try to describe the experience of using a site before giving you my verdict. That way, you first get the low-down on the site before I editorialize and provide my opinion about it. In a way, it’s like you and I are exploring the site together.
Yeah, today is not one of those days. I’ll be reviewing OgaMoney, but I’m going to just say straight-up that this site is a big stinking scam. With all my reviews, I try to give sites the benefit of the doubt and find what’s good in each one of them. But OgaMoney? There’s nothing good about this site. Nothing. Zero. Nada. This is the website equivalent of sinkholes suddenly appearing in your backyard, or your car suddenly dying in the middle of a busy street. It’s just bad and has no redeeming quality whatsoever.
But it isn’t enough for me to warn you about OgaMoney and tell you that it sucks. I also need to tell you why it sucks. So, let’s get on with this interview.
This version of OgaMoney was founded this just year. I say “this version” because the owners of the site will take site down only to resurface under a new name.
On the surface, OgaMoney is an advertising site. Advertisers pay them to show ads to their members. These members, in turn, get paid for clicking or viewing on these ads.
I’ve always known that advertisers pay for views and clicks to pad their metrics. This in itself is not a new earning method, and I know a few legit sites that pay you to view ads.
How to Earn
The site has only one earning method: you view and click ads, and get paid in cash. Some of these ads are images (like banners or headers), but a few are video.
Each one you view or click will pay you $.10, which is a surprisingly big amount. A few years ago a friend of mine got paid only one cent for doing this type of task (on a different website). I’ve also heard of a few sites that pay even less - $1 for filling out 1,000 captcha forms. So OgaMoney’s high pay rate seems suspicious right off the bat.
The Scammiest Referral System on the Interwebs
You can also earn via referrals - you get 50% earnings from the earnings of your recruits. That’s a huge amount! But if that sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is!
That’s because you will need - get a load of this - 40 referrals before you can redeem your earnings! Even the most dedicated site user will have trouble getting forty referrals. But don’t worry, OgaMoney is kind enough to sell you referrals! (Notice my sarcasm there?) Yep, you can buy referrals for $9 to $20.
Let me lay it out for you: OgaMoney wants you to pay for referrals, just so you can withdraw the money YOU earned.
And those referrals you’re buying aren’t even real people. Basically, you’re paying ransom. Yep, OgaMoney holds your earnings hostage. What kind of BS system is this?
And you can only pay through bitcoin. You can’t even pay with your site earnings. That way, you can’t refund the payment when their server conveniently crashes, and you need to pay them again!
If I knew where these guys lived, I’d love to drive up to their place in my truck and dump a ton of used kitty litter on their driveway.
The Registration Process: the Scams Keep Coming
No, I don’t recommend you join this site. But they have a pretty devious registration method that you need to be made aware of. For starters, anyone in the world can join - hey, it doesn’t matter where a scam victim is from, as long as OgaMoney can dupe them out of bitcoin, right?
Anyways, once you’re done registering, it’ll take them up to two months to approve your application. The reason it takes so long is that they want you to pay a $10 fee to expedite the processing. Again, you can only pay via bitcoin. And again, they will most likely “lose” your payment with no record of it in the hopes that you will pay a second time.
Obviously, this fee is in no way worth it; even if your membership application gets through, you’ll get screwed when you use the site.
“B—— Better Have My Money”
Unfortunately, there’s a bigger chance of OgaMoney not having your money. One of the most common complaints about this site is that they keep increasing the minimum payout (which is already obscenely high at $150), or requiring you to buy more imaginary referrals.
So I doubt you will ever get paid. But even if you do get paid, what hoops will you have to jump through?
OgaMoney: The Bad
On my other reviews, this would be the section where I list down the good and the bad about the site I’m reviewing. But with OgaMoney, there are no redeeming qualities. So, I’ll just list down all the bad things about this site.
Long approval process for new members - You need to pay $10 just to get approved in a reasonable amount of time.
High minimum payout - $150 is an insane amount - and that amount tends to increase when you want to get a cash-out.
Your earnings are held hostage - Even if you magically hit the minimum payout, you will need 40 referrals to get your money. The site conveniently sells these “referrals” for not a small amount of money. Basically, they’re selling your earnings back to you! What makes things crazier is the fact that these aren’t even real referrals; it’s just ransom.
Lost payments - They have a bad habit of losing payments, hoping to double-charge you for either expediting your registration or buying those imaginary referrals.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
There was never a doubt - OgaMoney is a big stinking scam! Avoid at all costs, unless you like having your earnings held hostage - on top of a giant heap of other scammy things.
