New programs that claim you can make a lot of money always seem to pop up. And the Job Payment is no different. With their claims of making a lot of money, and only on a small amount of work, they usually draw a large crowd.
Is The Job Payment a scam? Or is it a site that really is what it claims to be? Join us, as we look into the site and see!
Product: The Job Payment (TJP)
Description: A site that claims that as long as you have 1-2 hours and an internet connection, you can make $500 per week.
Rating: 1 out of 10
TJP (The Job Payment) is what I would call a ‘get rich scheme‘. The owners may not claim that it is that, but the claims they make seem to suggest it.
With the site seeming to only be around for a year, and the commissions seem too good to be true, TJP doesn’t sound too legit.
What Does Site Reveal?
Much can be found out about a program just by the site, assuming you take a careful look at everything you can find (and what you can’t find).
The first thing I noticed as I went to the site was the lack of web encryption on the site.
You’ll notice that it doesn’t have HTTPS in front of the URL This site, We Get Scammed For You, does.
HTTPS helps encrypt all the traffic that goes to and from a site, making it harder for hackers and spammers to capture it. Of course, many sites are still unfortunately without HTTPS, and so taking just this doesn’t overly prove much about the site.
Contradictions and English usage
18-19. They’ve been in business for about a year. Since I’m writing this in January 2019, you can’t really count this business being open more than a year, right?
If so, then why do they say they’ve been open for ‘years’, and have a lot of followers?
So the site claims to be around ‘since years’, and yet their copyright notice has only been showing that it’s been a year?
On top of that, you’ll notice that in the screenshot above, there are numerous grammatical mistakes in the sentence. It seems that the owners of the website don’t exactly know how English, or don’t know completely how to write in it.
Who are the owners anyways?
Speaking of the owners, they don’t seem to be existent. There doesn’t seem to be a mention of anyone, anywhere. Who owns the site? Who gives out all the money? Why did they make the site? What is reason for helping others?
The lack of ownership doesn’t make a site look good. The best way for people to buy into a program is for someone to help relate to people, i.e. have a page about themselves and what they like, dislike, and how you can relate to them.
And the owners aren’t the only thing that don’t seem to be around.
Is my privacy safe?
A TOS helps you know what exactly you can and can’t do with the site, and what you’re exactly getting with the site. They are giving you terms that their service will be from.
It’s basically a bunch of fancy jargon that tells you what they will and won’t do with everything they collect from you. It’s the policies they’ll use to take care of your data, i.e. email addresses, IP addresses, home address, name, etc.
Without one on the site, there is no way you can know what they’re going to do with all your data. You also don’t know what the TOS are, so for all you know it could be a scam, and you would just get ripped off!
Sometimes you can ignore mishaps like this, but on this site especially, I wouldn’t recommend ignoring this type of error.
Because of the registration process, and what they ask from you.
Registering for a free account!
So what exactly is the registration process for making an account?
So they want your email address, your personal address, and your actual real name for when they send a cheque?
I’m sorry, but I’m not going to give my personal name or home address to a site that doesn’t tell me clearly what they’re going to do with it.
But since I’m getting scammed for you, I’ll go through the process to see what comes out of it! Why not give the site all my info so that they can do everything they want with it, right?
Making my own free account
After I made my free account (using fake info of course), I found out exactly what the site was trying to do.
In the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), they claim that you’re just giving out referral links from their advertisers, and the more people you get to click on your links, the more money you make. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Hmm, so there doesn’t actually seem to be any other advertisers, or referral links, except for the one for TheJobPayment.com.
Also, they say that you’ll earn about 5-10 dollars for every unique visitor that joins the site. That is really too high. No one in their right mind would pay that much for only one unique visitor. Then again, there are probably some rich people out here who pay that much, but it is on a very rare occasion.
Clearly, the program is just a way to get itself advertised more, so that they can get more of people’s info. There doesn’t seem to be a way that TJP makes any money on this site, so the only logical explanation is that they make money by selling the info that you give to register (like your home address, email, and full name).
Why does this seem plausible?
Because as I look around my login dashboard, there is no way to change my home address, or even my email address. What if I change one of them? What if I move? What if I got married and changed my name?
All of those are legit reasons for need to change them, and yet, I can’t find a way to do it anywhere.
I got an email back rather quickly, but it wasn’t what I was exactly expecting.
According to the email I received from my email provider, TJP’s email address isn’t a vaild email address.
So much for finding out about what they do with the info I gave them…
Is The Job Payment A Scam?
I’ll just call this one as I see it. It clearly looks like a scam. There is no mention of any creators or owners, and no Privacy Policies or TOS. The support system doesn’t work, and the only thing that you are promoting is the site itself.
Clearly, this site isn’t worth anyone’s time, and shouldn’t be used by anyone. The only reason people fall for this is because of the claims of the website, and how much money you think you can make.
Even if you reach the payout threshold, which is $300, I highly doubt you’ll be paid. And if you can’t, who would you contact anyways, since their support system doesn’t work?
(UPDATE: I actually found around 40 other websites that look exactly like TJP. You can check them out here.)
An alternative to TJP
I’m a member of a program called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s a site that helps people learn how to make money online, particuarly with affiliate marketing. Simply put, it’s essentially the same thing that TJP claims that you do. Only Wealthy Affiliate actually works.
They’ve got a support system that does wonders, a community of people who are willing to help you get started, and they have training that will teach you concepts in a quick and easy way.
They also have a free membership that you can take a part of. You’ll learn how to build websites quickly, how to get traffic to those referral links you’ll have, and how to promote anything that you want. If you enjoy something, they’ll teach you how to make money from it.
