What Is Regular Dollars: Scam Or Legit?
The classic image of a happy lady behind her laptop, happily working away online and not having to worry about going out to work… she can spend more time with her family and her children while earning hundreds or thousands from home.
“Earning from home… made easy!”
Hey, maybe she only needs to work online a couple of hours a day and spend the rest of the time enjoying leisurely activities and meeting with friends.
This is a common scenario that make-money-online products like to portray. Although, generally, this far from the reality when it comes to making money online!
I’m afraid that making money online actually takes a lot of work. Sure, there can be plenty of perks from generating an online income, but it’s not a walk in the park.
Program: Regular Dollars
Price: Free sign up.
Overall Rating: It’s a scam, I recommend that you keep away from this one.
So, What Do Regular Jobs Claim?
They claim that you can work for them, fitting in as many hours as you wish and completing certain tasks for them.
For completing a simple task, that should take no more than 5-10 minutes, they say they’ll pay you a guaranteed $1,500 in your first week alone and even provide you with a $25 bonus JUST for signing up.
Imagine that. Does it sound too good to be true?
Sure it does. Unfortunately, that’s because it is.
There are many fake online job sites that present themselves as being somewhere that you can legitimately find work online.
But these sorts of websites provide nothing like that at all.
They are not going to be connecting you with legitimate employers, you’re not going to be interviewed for real jobs online – there is nothing like that involved.
All they are really offering you is to be part of their (fake) affiliate program. (if you don’t know what affiliate marketing is: check out this post).
How Much Can You Earn?
They claim that, by spamming their affiliate link around the web, you will be able to earn $10 PER CLICK.
First off, this is a ridiculous statement. Many scams like this will claim you can earn 10 – 15 – or even $25 PER CLICK of an affiliate link.
This is just nuts and way above and beyond anything you’d earn from someone merely clicking on a link.
You can hire people online very easily these days, for next to nothing. That’s because you can hire freelancers from all over the globe, somewhere like Upwork for example.
You can pay people very cheaply to post links for you, you certainly wouldn’t need to pay them anything like $10 a click.
But these guys go a step further from getting cheap labour. They get THEIR workers to work entirely for free…. and those workers are YOU! (I’ll explain further in a moment).
In fact… I signed up and the backend of this website is pretty much identical to those programs I recently reviewed.
What Happens When You Sign Up?
You simply sign up by creating a username/password and email address. If you want to try this for yourself, be sure you’re using fake information.
You’re likely to get spammed if you use your real email address and I wouldn’t recommend it.
Once you’ve done that, you’re immediately sent to the members area, which consists of very little whatsoever.
They give you your referral link, very brief info about where you should use it and let you know that you’ll make $5-$10 per referral you sign up.
They also make that $25 – as promised- visible in your account.
However, you can’t just withdraw that money. They say you need to make $300 before you can withdraw.
And despite telling you on the main page that there are a variety of ways you can withdraw – the only way you can take money out, is via cheque.
Can You Withdraw Once You Reach The $300 Threshold?
For many people, (especially those brand new online) they may well give up prior to reaching the payout threshold and never realise that it’s a scam.
For those that do, you will quickly become aware that’s something is wrong.
With any legitimate program, you request your payment and it will begin to be processed; whether that’s by cheque, or direct debit, or Paypal.
In this case though, they send you on a journey of never ending offers for you to complete in order to release your payment.
Ever heard of a legitimate company do that?
What Sort Of Offers?
The offers they send you off to is REALLY the way that this website is making some money.
Remember, they don’t ask you to pay to sign up right? So, what would be in it for them?
Well, for one thing, the more people that YOU can bring them to sign up to their website, the more people could potentially reach the payout threshold and get to this stage.
Once people are at this payout stage, the owners behind regular dollars will be earning a commission per offer that is completed.
These will be things like, competitions to win gift cards, surveys for information, or to go into a prize draw for various things – such as vouchers and gadgets and many more.
They make it look like you only need to complete a certain number of offers to get to the payment stage.
But no sooner have you completed those offers, yet more offers appear to complete and so it goes on.
However, even if you somehow stick along with this never ending conveyor belt of offers and reach the end…. will you get your money then?
Nope! Regular Dollars are only paying by check, (or cheque as we say in the UK! 🙂 ).
They will simply tell you that this payment was lost in the post. Eventually they will probably just ignore you and hope you give up eventually. I doubt many people actually reach that stage!

So YOU Work For Them – For Free!
Far from them paying anything at all to you; you are actually working for them for free.
You work posting link after link, via Facebook, websites, forums and blog posts and bring THEM traffic and more sign ups and by the end of it, you get absolutely nothing.
Yet they generate commissions from any offers completed by referrals, all sent to them via you.
Nothing for you to gain and everything to gain for them! It sucks, but these scams are really common online.
So, What Is Regular Dollars: Scam Or Legit?
I think I’ve explained enough here to demonstrate that Regular Dollars is a TOTAL SCAM.
You can check out the website yourself, just remember not to use your real, (or active) email address.
It’s unfortunate that anyone who does sign up to their website will go into it thinking they can really make money there and potentially a life changing income.
A lot of legitimate online jobs often turn out to be extremely mundane and repetitive tasks, that you’ll get paid a measly amount to do.
There are various ways you can make better money online, but these will involve creating your own business and working for yourself.
For example; freelancing is a good option these days and if you have an expertise in any area, this could be something to consider.
Personally, I started making money online once I learnt how to build websites online and learnt about affiliate marketing.
It may sound complicated, but I didn’t have any experience at all when I started.
If you’re interested in how you could learn about that from scratch: This is where I first began.
