Is Money Come First A Scam? Can You Really Make $800+ Per Day?
I recently had a message by a reader sent to me asking about this companies legitimacy, as they thought they’d seen an identical site before – by another name.
So, I decided to investigate and signed up with Money Come First and see what they had on offer.
I’d personally never heard of this website before, but upon arrival, it immediately had the warning signs of a scam.
Not all websites that look like scams end up being so! So, was this an exception?
What Is Money Come First? My First Impressions!
When I arrived at the Money Come First website, my initial impression was that it should have something to do with a job board, somewhere you could search for jobs online perhaps.
However, red writing at the top of the page said that I could earn $800 today. So, immediately there were warning bells ringing in my ears.
One thing to always be aware of with any online opportunity, is unrealistic earning claims.
To be fair, plenty of scams also give you quite realistic earning claims to lure you in…
But when it goes as far as saying you’ll make hundreds or thousands within a very short space a time, that’s an immediate red flag.
In any case, I wanted to get into the members area, so I signed up with fake details.
I have an email I use specifically for sites like this and I recommend you have a separate email account you use to sign up for any websites you’re unsure about.
I’m in…. What now?
Straight away, I am then able to login to the members area.
I was a little confused at this point. Everywhere on this website, it mentions the word, “job.” But where were these “jobs?”
I couldn’t see any tasks I needed to complete… no jobs anyone could actually apply for.
When I accessed my account area, I found a referral link and it said that I had $25 in my account.
The referral link is a special link connected to you, that you’re meant to share online, in order to make a sale, or commission.
Every time someone clicks your link, it is tracked and for every click through to this website, you’re told you will earn $10.
They also claim to give you $25 just for signing up.
However, as you can see above, you also need to have made a minimum of $300 before you’re eligible to cash out anything.
$10 For Clicking A link?
They want this to sound appealing and getting $10 just for someone clicking on your link sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?
But the reality is, that this is way above the sort of price that would ever be paid in this scenario.
You just do not get paid that amount of money for getting people to click an affiliate link, it doesn’t matter what company it is.
So, essentially they’re telling you to spam social media, forums and blogs and get paid $10 whenever someone clicks through to their website, via your link.
This is not a job, no one is hiring here. People do make money from affiliate marketing and it’s a source of income for many online…. but no one is employing you or anyone else here.
Nor is anyone actually getting paid in reality!
An Empty Webiste:
What’s interesting here is that this entire website consists of barely anything content wise.
The main page is simply the front page, that tells you to create your account.
It claims there are “unlimited job positions,” on this main page.
From here, is the login page once you’re logged in there is only your referral link page showing how much you’ve made, an FAQ page and a contact page.
That is it!!!!
That is the extent of this website and this, “opportunity.”
You Will Never Be Paid:
To appear somewhat legitimate, (although it’s a poor attempt) they have a variety of payment methods pictured at the bottom of their website.
However, this is fake.
The only payment option is via cheque. Naturally, you can be certain that this cheque will never arrive.
I highly doubt they would reply to any contact attempt in the first place, but there are various excuses they could make about a cheque not arriving.
Unfortunately, you probably won’t ever get to that stage and I’ll explain why in a moment.
They Make Cashing Out Impossible To Do:
When you eventually reach your cash-out threshold, you can naturally request your payment.
With any legitimate business, this is as far as it goes. You request a payment and that payment begins to be processed.
Predictably, this isn’t the case here. Once you’ve requested payment, you’re then told you need to complete an offer of your choosing in order to qualify for payment.
This will be something like signing up for a sweepstake entry, signing up for a trial, or completing a survey.
However, one offer then runs on to a seemingly never ending stream of offers.
The reason you’re being sent to these offers, is because this company will receive a commission for every one you complete – the more you do, the more money they will make.
But they have zero intention of ever sending YOU any money at all.

How Else Do They Make Money?
You’re probably wondering how else they make money. I mean, surely with that high $300+ dollar threshold, a majority of people won’t even reach that stage?
Well, when anyone clicks through to their website and gives their information, this is information that they can sell on to third parties.
The more people you bring them, the more money they can make by selling on this information.
Worryingly, your email address could potentially be accessed by people intending to steal far more than just that.
This is also something you should check out prior to signing up with any website online.
If they’re not telling you how they will be using your personal information, then what’s stopping them using it however they choose?
Also, if you have no idea who the person is behind a website, or how to contact them directly – you need to wonder why.
Why are they hiding and why should you trust them?
Is Money Come First A Scam?
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this is a complete scam.
This isn’t even one of those cases where you may make a certain amount with this business.
You will make nothing at all, because they will never pay you.
There are an infinite amount of programs online that promise you can become very wealthy over night, but this is just not a reality when it comes to making money online.
If you want to start making money online, unless you’re going to pay someone to do all the work for you; you will have to work just as hard as you would starting any business.
One of the bonuses of growing an income online, is that you can do it relatively cheaply, in comparison to a brick and mortar business.
But if some program or other claims you can quit your regular 9-5 job for free and make a fortune online with little, or no effort… then plain and simple, it’s a scam.
I’ve been looking into these opportunities for over two years now and legitimate opportunities are a rarity.
Legitimate ways to make money online are probably all ways you’ve already heard of many times before!
While new ways will certainly always pop up online, you need to be in the mix of it to be aware of them.
For example; I recently started a new hustle with Merch by Amazon – which has provided an exciting opportunity to many previously in the print-on-demand space.
The reason I heard about it at all, was because I regularly listen to various podcasts online related to making money online…. (see: top 5 podcasts that changed my life!).
I personally first started to make money online once I learnt about affiliate marketing and this is where I started to learn.
If you’ve seen any sites online that you’d like me to look into, I’d love to hear about them! Leave me a comment below and I will check it out.
If you’ve had any experience with Money Come First, I’d love to hear from you too!
All the best,
