Is Hlpcash.sbs Fake or Real?
Why is Hlpcash.sbs Fake?
Hlpcash.sbs is a website that claims to pay users for watching videos. The website makes false promises that users who sign up on the platform can earn up to $300 per day by just working part-time, plus extra in the form of referral bonuses. Firstly, paying users to watch videos is a form of fraud called click fraud.
Secondly, the kind of money being promised for menial work is extremely unrealistic compared to other websites such as 2captcha which are somewhat scammy but still pay users. The site also looks similar to confirmed scams such as Xopmoney, Lommoney, YouTuber Cash and related sites which I have written about previously.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 10th October 2022. The registrant’s details such as name, location and contact information have been hidden using a privacy guard. Therefore, it is a new website that is being operated anonymously from an unknown country.
Similar to Xopmoney and Lommoney, I found that Hlpcash is just one website among a large number of cloned websites. All these websites are clones with the only difference being the website URL. The website content is clearly fake as even the Support page is exactly the same on all sites. I found that there are at least 104 identical sites, all of which are scams. The list of sites is given at the end of the article.
There is also a section on the home page that supposedly shows successful payouts. However, the payment proof is obviously fake too as the same list is present on all the sites.
Hlpcash was confirmed to be a scam in my opinion when signed up and tried using the platform. The activity through which you ‘earn’ is not even video watching, rather it is captcha solving. There is also a $200 minimum withdrawal threshold, which means that you will have to solve 952 captchas (at 21¢ per captcha) before you are even eligible for a withdrawal.
Hlpcash does not provide any company information or contact details. There are no social media pages either. I could only find 1 review for it online on ScamAdviser in which the user said that Hlpcash is a scam as they require 40 mandatory referrals before a payout can be made, even though the user reached the $200 withdrawal threshold.
The scam here is that the site then directs users to a ‘Referral exchange’ page where they can supposedly buy referrals from other users for for $20 to $40. Payments have to be made using Bitcoin, which is extremely unsafe as crypto transactions cannot be reversed.
It is incredibly obvious that Hlpcash and the 104 identical sites are all scams. These sites are new and are being run anonymously. There is a mandatory requirement to invite referrals and money is supposedly earned through captcha-solving, even though the website says ‘video watching’.
Hlpcash’s website is completely fake as it is one among a set of at least 104 cloned sites. There is no information about the company running the site, there is no contact information and there are no social media pages either.
Users have said in reviews that the site does not actually pay, which means that these sites are a ploy to get users to solve captchas for free. It is advisable to avoid signing up on Hlpcash or the 104 cloned websites, as they are scams that waste your time and try to steal your money by selling fake referrals.
