Is Wintub Fake or Real?
Why is Wintub Fake?
Wintub is a platform which claims to pay users for watching videos. Users can sign up for free and are given videos to watch. There are no details on the home page about the earning potential. Upon signing up and logging in to the dashboard, I could see that each video paid between $0.32 to $0.56. They also mention a referral program wherein you can get paid for each new user you bring in.
A domain name lookup of the website showed that it was registered on 12th March 2020. No information about the registrant’s name or location is available as it has been protected for privacy.
Wintub has no social media presence and there are no contact details provided except for an email ID. Checking it on Mailtester revealed that it is an invalid email ID.
The website is very thin on information and does not mention anything about payout limits or mandatory referral requirements. There are user reviews available on TrustPilot, SiteJabber and ScamAdviser, as well as some blogs which are overwhelmingly negative.
They say that there is a minimum $80 threshold for payouts and there is a mandatory requirement of 15 referrals. These reviews also claim that the payment system is rigged because as the threshold is about to be reached, the payment per video drastically reduces to a point where it is practically impossible to reach the limit.
As per the information available, it can be concluded that Wintub is a scam. The home page doesn’t make any mention of important details such as a payment threshold or mandatory referrals. Even though the website claims that they have made payouts, the users contradict this assertion. There are no contact details provided and the email ID given is invalid. It may very well be the case that the site owner is making money for themself by having others watch the videos and running ads on the website. It doesn’t look like Wintub is trustworthy.
What is Wintub anyway? Shouldn’t it be Wintube?
