Financial Affiliate Platforms
Are InCupone and ToMyRise Fake or Real?
Why Are InCupone and ToMyRise Fake?
InCupone and ToMyRise are two identical websites that claim to be ‘world financial affiliate programs’ and supposedly give payouts of $100 a day for simple clicking work. The sites seem to have Russian origin as some of the text is in the Russian language. InCupone and ToMyRise have no differences in design or content. The websites provide close to no information on what the platform is actually about. The FAQs contain one-line responses that barely manage to actually answer the questions.
Domain name lookups of the websites show that both were created barely two months apart. ToMyRise was created first on 10th June 2018 and InCupone was created later on 9th August 2018. Both websites are registered under the name of Nikolaj Kutnyak in Russia. The phone number provided is +7.4162697480 and was shown to be belonging to Nikolaj on TrueCaller. The email address of the registrant is given as email@example.com
The website seems to be a dummy clicking platform where you just tap a few buttons and money magically accumulates in your account. Signing up is free and there is a minimum $150 threshold for withdrawal. I couldn’t find any information about a withdrawal fee or any other kind of payment which needs to be done.
Users get a $1 daily bonus and there is a referral program which allows users to earn $0.5 per invite and 30% of your referral’s profits.
Neither websites have a social media presence. There are contact details provided are an email ID, phone number and address. Both websites give the same phone numbers and address. The email ID was found to be invalid when tested on MailTester and the address also looks fake since it used by 2,513 other companies. No information could be found for the phone numbers on TrueCaller, which might indicate that they are inactive.
There are a few reviews available for InCupone on TrustPilot and just one for ToMyRise. ToMyRise has some reviews on WebOfTrust which are in Russian and say that it is a scam. The reviews are mostly negative and say that the website doesn’t give payouts. There are also some comments on YouTube saying the same thing.
All the signs suggest that InCupone and ToMyRise are scams. However, I can’t figure out what the point of these websites is other than wasting people’s time. The websites are poorly made and the platform doesn’t look like it does anything. The contact information is fake and the reviews say that they haven’t received any payments.
My guess would have been that the websites ask for a payment in order to withdraw earnings, but there doesn’t seem to be any indication that the website is demanding a fee from users. It is advisable to avoid wasting your time on these websites as they seem to be fake.
It has come to my attention that this platform is also operating under the names OnMyRise (on.myrise.net) and ItMyRise (it.myrise.net). They are part of the same network as ToMyRise and InCupone and seems to be a scam.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

- Block all numbers of the scammers on TrueCaller, mentioning the words Fake, Fraud or Scam in the name.
