Fix Monthly Income appears to be an easy way to make money online.
But the reality is quite different. The real reason the website is setup, is to harvest your personal information and sell it for a profit.
I don’t expect you to take my word for it though. Read on to see for yourself…
Fix Monthly Income Review
One of my readers reached out via a comment today, and asked if Fix Monthly Income is a scam or not. This is the first I’d heard of it, so I jumped onto the website (fixmonthlyincome.com) to see what it’s all about.
The first thing I noticed is that there’s no information about who’s running the show. So I looked further, and found that the website registration has been set to anonymous. This is a red flag in itself, but it’s also not enough to flag something as a scam either.
The next thing I did was analyse the claims the website makes…
Apparently, you can make “easy money daily” by simply sharing links with people you know. It says you can make as much as $5 per unique click on your link.
Certainly sounds good. But there are two immediate red flags with this…
First of all, no one pays you $5 per click on a link. As someone who earns a full-time income online and knows how online marketing works, I can safely say that is absolute nonsense.
There are programs that pay your by the click or by the free referral, but none of them pay you this much for a click. Even if there is, there’d be serious vetting involved to ensure the quality of the affiliates and the traffic delivered.
In this case, there is no vetting of any kind, and there is no money changing hands. It makes zero sense.
Second, I noticed how similar this site is to a few other scams I’ve reviewed in the past:
All of the above sites say the same thing… sign up for free, share your link, and get paid $5-$10 per click on your link. They may have different names and change a few things around, but they’re all the same. This is also similar to what many link posting scam sites say.
In any case, no one ever gets paid from any of these sites.
How Fix Monthly Income Really Works
If you’re a thinking person, you’ve likely asked yourself the question “why would they give me money just to share my link”. Well done. Asking questions like this is the first step to avoiding scams.
Unfortunately, they provide an answer that many people will potentially believe:
They claim to be paying you because you are bringing traffic to their site when you share your link. They say they make money from their ‘advertisers’ so they are happy to do this.
While this is somewhat plausible, this story doesn’t make sense.
Why? For starters, there is no advertising on their site. In order for their story to be true, there would need to be actual advertisers advertising stuff on that site. Which there are not.
Even if they did have advertising setup on their site or through emails they send you, only a percentage of people will click on these ads. And even fewer will buy. So they would have to be selling extremely high priced products to be giving you $5 per click.
But there is a reason they’ve set this site up. A reason that does involve THEM making money, but one that does not have anything to do with paying you.
The real reason this site exists, is to sell your personal information to the highest bidder.
This is big business online, and it’s all too common among scam sites. They collect your information, and sell it to whoever is willing to buy. And there’s always someone willing to buy a list full of people who want to make money online.
This is why no one ever gets paid, except the scammers running it who sell your info. And people are already starting to discover this the hard way according to this complaint on Ripoff Report:
There are several reports of people getting all of the clicks and meeting the $300 minimum payout, and not receiving their money. Many more reports will likely follow as time goes on.
Why Your Personal Information Is At Risk
I’ve explained what the real purpose of this site is. But I wanted to dig a little deeper into this to show you what I mean.
It starts when you provide your full name, email and mailing address:
Apart from the red flags that I’ve already mentioned, there are two main reasons providing your personal information to the anonymous people running this site is risky.
First, the website is not secure. You will notice in the screenshot above that they are not running a secure website. Whenever you are giving personal information such as your name, email and address, the site should be secure.
What’ the big deal about giving them your info?
Well, best case you receive a lot of unwanted SPAM from the owners of the site, and whoever they share your info with. Worst case however, is you could potentially become a target for identity theft.
I personally wouldn’t be too concerned about the latter though, because you have not given them enough info to steal your identify. This would only become an issue if they contacted you down the road, and you gave them more information. Like if you bought something from them, or tried to ‘claim a payment’ by giving them more info.
Is Fix Monthly Income a Scam?
In my opinion, yes. It is a scam.
They may not be asking you for your money, which is unfortunately what leads many to believe it’s ok. But they do ask for your personal information, and they intend on selling it.
The sale of personal information is big business online. It nets dubious scammers quite a sum of money.
This is primarily because they have a targeted list of people who want to make money online quickly and easily. People who do not know how online business works. Unfortunately, this is a prime target audience for scammers. Because they can (and will) sell product after product to people on this list promising ‘quick and easy money’. And they sell it to others who will do the same.
There are many good and legitimate ways to create an income online, so it’s not all bad news. But unfortunately, scam sites like this prefer to mislead people rather than actually help them.
Worse, by sharing these links with your friends and family, you are effectively doing the scammers ‘dirty work’. You and anyone you shared this with, will have their information sold to ‘who knows’. Which will result in SPAM and your information getting into the wrong hands.
In any case, I recommend avoiding the Fix Monthly Income Scam at all costs.
Did you know that most people fail to make money online?
Despite the wealth of opportunity that exists online right now, there's also lots of fake "gurus" selling bunk programs that over promise and under deliver. It's a wild west!
The good news is... it IS possible for ordinary people to create success online. I know, because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from zero to $8K plus per month online.
