Copy-Pasting & Typing Jobs
Is Daily Online Jobs Fake or Real?
Why is Daily Online Jobs Fake?
Daily Online Jobs is a website which claims to pay users for work such as copy-pasting ads and article writing. The website says that workers can get paid ₹15,000 per month. This seems to be a random number since the FAQs state that workers’ earnings depend on how much time they spend working. The content of the website doesn’t look professional and only talks about copy-pasting ads, although, Daily Online Jobs also offers article writing and ‘quiz’ jobs.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 20th December 2016. However, the traffic data of the website shows that it was only been active since August 2018. No information about the registrant such as the name or location is available as it has been blocked for privacy.
The website does not require a fee for signing up. They add a welcome bonus of ₹500 in the account and also give a daily bonus of ₹0.50. There is a flat bonus of ₹10 for every referral. There is a minimum withdrawal threshold of ₹5,000. It is stated in the FAQs that they charge a processing fee for every withdrawal, but the amount is not mentioned. There is a separate page on the website showing payment proof. This can easily be faked and there is no way to verify if they have actually given any payouts to users.
Daily Online Jobs does not have any social media presence and only two email addresses are provided. The email IDs were found to be working and one of them is used to send confirmation emails to users who sign up on the website. The page does not have a dedicated Contact page.
There are many user reviews available on MouthShut and PissedConsumer, most of which are negative. As claimed by the users, they have to submit articles of 700 words. However, the articles don’t go through when users try to submit them. Users have complained that it will take months to reach the withdrawal threshold of ₹5,000. Those users who have managed to reach this threshold have said that they are not able to withdraw the earnings, which indicates that the website is a scam. There is also a user review on Scamadviser where it has been stated that the minimum withdrawal limit was earlier set at ₹2,000.
It seems highly likely that Daily Online Jobs is a scam. There is no information on who is running the company and no contact details are provided. The work provided is typical of online job scams and many similar companies have been covered on this blog: Employment Scams
It seems from the user reviews that the work being provided is not real, or is being outsourced for free. The rate of ₹15 for a 700-word article is also extremely low and suggests that it is a fake job.
Users are incentivized to leave positive reviews in order to get referral benefits, which makes the reviews less credible. There are several complaints about being unable to submit work and withdraw earnings. This shows a high possibility that Daily Online Jobs is a fake website. It would be advisable to avoid signing up on Daily Online Jobs as the odds are high of it being a scam.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
