Hi and welcome to my CashInfluence Review. I’m glad you’re here because there are some important things you need to know.
You probably stumbled onto CashInfluence through social media or a friend sharing a link, and you're interested because they're promising big bucks. Who wouldn’t want to earn $500 to $1,000 per day just by sharing links and completing surveys?
It's easy money!
But... is CashInfluence legit, or just a scam?
There are a lot of dangerous sites on the web and not only can you get scammed out of your earnings, but you can also lose a lot more.
And, when a site makes a promise of $500 - $1000 daily like this one does, I'm highly skeptical.
In this review I'll talk about who CashInfluence is, what they do and how they work. I'll also reveal some unfortunate details (yes... I said unfortunate).
Specifically, the general topics I'm going to cover are...
- What is CashInfluence?
- Is CashInfluence a Scam?
- How Does CashInfluence Work?
- CashInfluence Reviews and Complaints
- What I Like About CashInfluence
- What I Don’t Like
- Where Do You Go From Here?

What Is CashInfluence?
According to the CashInfluence site, they’re an Influencer network – THE #1 Influencer network, to be exact.
As an influencer network, you’re supposed to make money from their site by referring people (to join them). This is best done by sharing your unique referral link on social media and urging people to register to their site so they too can make $500 to $1,000 per day (a lot of people will surely join if they see it’s easy money).
And of course, you’ll make a lot of money because each successful referral will earn you $15.
If you have a lot of followers, the possibility of making a lot of money (just by referring people) is almost guaranteed. I say "almost" because earning the money is one thing...
Getting paid is another, but more on that in a moment.
They also have other simple tasks on their platform such as answering surveys/questionnaires and downloading apps and games. At the time of writing this CashInfluence review, their highest paying task involves uploading short videos on YouTube (nothing fancy, just a short testimonial on how good their platform is and how you’re easily making money from their site).
But wait, don’t get your hopes up just yet. Like I said earlier. I'll also reveal some unfortunate details.
Look, I know you want CashInfluence to be real. So do I. And at first glance I was hopeful.
However, there were a few things that reminded me of some other sites I've seen, which all turned out to be scams. So I have my doubts.
Is CashInfluence legit? Let's take a closer look...
Is CashInfluence a Scam?
The web is full of scams. Unfortunately, there are far more scams than there are legit programs and courses, and before I can recommend anything I look for the obvious red flags.
Making $500 - $1000 daily is an obvious red flag. We're talking a six-figure income for doing nothing more than sharing your link and performing simple tasks online. A life changing amount of money for doing less than you're probably doing now...
It just doesn't sit right...
If true, it would be a real miracle, right? Lifting entire communities out of poverty and going a long way to solving serious problems like global hunger.
Can it really be this easy? Or is it more likely we're looking at a scam here?
I'll tell you what I think about CashInfluence, but first... let's look at some of the red flags I found…
Red Flag #1 – Fake Founding Date
According to CashInfluence’s official site, they started in March 2015. The screenshot below was taken from their About/Story page.
You see, they’re making it seem like their site has been around for many years (which builds credibility).
But is it true? Has CashInfluence really been around since 2015?
Remember, we're talking about a site that has the potential to perform miracles, providing families with life changing money. The kind that pays for expensive medical bills that can save lives.
And until recently, I've never heard of them. And I'm guessing that's true for you too...
So, I looked a little deeper into their founding date and this is what I found. CashInfuence's website cashinfluence.co was only registered on February 3, 2020 (screenshot below).
They’re just a baby (only a few weeks old) at the time of writing this CashInfluence review.
This is a huge red flag because it puts into question everything else they say.
They are literally lying about their age with the deliberate intent to deceive people. This is anything but legit.
Simply put... legit online survey and get-paid-to sites don't pay $500 - $1000 per day. It just doesn't make sense. Surveys and simple online tasks don't require an advanced education, special skill, or a great deal of manual labor.
And earning a six-figure income without any of those things is next to impossible. It would be like winning the lottery.
However, they're an easy way to get started online and they are legit (unlike CashInfluence).
They can also be a stepping stone to something more serious like an online business.
You may be at home because of difficulties with your health for example, or young ones to look after.
If that’s the case and a full-time income online is what you want, knowing how and where to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.
Red Flag #2 – Clone of Tap2Earn?
If you remember earlier, I said CashInfluence reminded me of some other sites I've seen.
I wish I was wrong... but I wasn't.
Have a look at the screenshot below (taken from CashInfluence's About page).
If you look closely, you’ll see that they referred to something called Tap 2 Earn (instead of CashInfluence in their 2015 history). And, in the year 2016, they supposedly recieved national attention as Tap2Earn.
This is another big red flag because Tap2Earn has already been exposed as a total scam.
And here we have CashInfluence copying and pasting the same text found on Tap2Earn's website and not even taking the time to change it to say CashInfluence.
You wouldn't copy a proven scam, but what you would do (as a scammer) is create a second (or third, fourth, etc.) scam, slightly different, but based on the same scam once the previous one was exposed.
So the most likely scenario here is that CashInfluence is owned by the same person (or group of people) who created Tap2Earn.
Red Flag #3 – Fake Payment Proofs
I took screenshots of some of CashInfluence’s payment proofs. The images below are all fakes because they’re dated May 30, 2019, August 2, 2019, and November 1, 2019.
Remember, CashInfluence only started their site on February 3, 2020 so there is no way these payment proofs could exist.
And to further hammer home their own connection to the scam Tap2Earn, their November 1st 2019 payment proof is carrying Tap2Earn’s logo.
Red Flag #4 – Fake Testimonials
There is also proof that aside from their fake payment proofs, CashInfluence is also using fake testimonials.
In the screenshot below you'll see that the exact names of these so-called CashInfluence success stories have been lifted from another site called Cash4Clickz.
Needless to say, using fake testimonials is another huge red flag which means there are no real people actually making money from their site (or else they'd use real people).
Furthermore, if they were really around since 2015 and real people were actually earning $500 to $1,000 per day using their platform... they wouldn't only have real testimonials, they'd probably have late night talk show clips and local news appearances for changing people's lives.
But instead we get fake testimonials with cartoon avatars?
Red Flag #5 – Clone of Cash4Clickz?
Of course, when you look at the previous screenshot (above) and see that the testimonials on CashInfluence are exactly the same as those on Cash4Clickz (Ashlee N., Michael D., Bryan S., and Jaysen L) you run into the same problem as the copied text from Tap2Earn because Cash4Clickz is a scam site.
They wouldn't copy a scam site unless they owned the scam site, and in previous reviews the evidence showed that Tap2Earn and Cash4Clicka were indeed from the same people.
Red Flag #6 – No Social Media Presence
If CashInfluence really did start in 2015, they should have an online presence by now.
But since they’re actually only a few weeks old (at the time of this review), it’s understandable that they’re practically nonexistent on the internet (all they have is their official site).
So it's pretty hard to believe that a so-called Influencer Network which is supposedly making money through social media doesn’t even have social media accounts or followers. And they are not just any Influencer Network. They claim to be the #1 Influencer Network.
In fact, the social media icons on their site are fakes that only lead back to their respective sites (not specific accounts or profiles).
This shouldn't be a surprise though because they've lied about everything else on their site.
Red Flag #7 – The Better Business Bureau is Warning About Scam Sites
As I mentioned earlier, the people (or person) behind Cash Influence are behind an entire network of scams. A couple of those scams include Notion Cash and Kids Earn Money...
The BBB has issued a consumer alert/warning on those scam sites (Notion Cash and Kids Earn Money) and according to the BBB, they don’t pay their members.
I must admit, these are just a handful of the red flags I found. Others include copy and paste text from several other scams like SwiftBucks.
But... do we need more red flags?
What do you think? Is CashInfluence a scam? Based on what we already know, in my opinion it's pretty clear that CashInfluence is a scam!
But what's really going on here?
How Does CashInfluence Work?
If you've read this far, you know that CashInfluence is a scam. But that's not the entire story.
You don't pay to join CashInfluence, so what are they really getting from you? How does it work?
Let me show you how they’re supposed to work…
First of all, you need to join their site which is super easy because registration is free. They’ll even throw in a signup bonus of $25 because they like you.
You can then make easy (life changing) money on their platform because they pay $15 per referral and $3 per click (using your unique referral link).
And it doesn't stop there. If you upload a YouTube video saying they’re legit (and providing people with your referral link so they can sign up to CashInfluence), they’ll pay you another $50.
As I mentioned a few moments ago, earning money and getting paid are two different things.
Will CashInfluence actually pay you?
No... they won't pay you, which I'll discuss further below. All they do is credit your CashInfluence account (in your members area) with fake money to make you think that you’re really earning on their platform.
And here’s the thing...
You won’t immediately know you're not going to get paid because you’ll be required to do a minimum number of tasks before you can cash out (e.g. at least 5 referrals, at least 10 clicks, at least 5 tasks, etc.), and you'll have to wait at the very least 30 - 60 days.
And when you do meet all their requirements and finally qualify for a cashout, they’ll lock you out of their system.
How CashInfluence REALLY Works
In their consumers report, the Better Business Bureau tells us how these scam sites really work. The screenshots below are excerpts from their publication…
According to BBB, these sites claim to be Influencer platforms and you’re supposed to make money by referring friends, creating/uploading videos, answering surveys, downloading apps and games, etc.
And, in the end (as I already revealed in this CashInfluence review), you won’t get paid and you won't be able to contact their customer support about it, because there is no customer support (it's also fake).
See, BBB itself said that scam sites like CashInfluence only exist to steal your information, such as the following:
- Phone number
- Payment information (PayPal, Cash App, bank information).
And to make matters worse, they’ll also get the name and contact information (and other details) of your referrals (friends, relatives, and followers on social media).
BBB has also given the possible risks for getting involved in scam sites like CashInfluence. Here are some of them:
- They’ll sell your information to spammers.
- They’ll steal your identity (Identity theft).
- They’ll hack into your accounts (using the email and password combination you used in registering to their site).
As a final warning, BBB also advised to look for the following signs of scam Influencer sites:
- Claims of high pay
- High referral pays
- High signup bonuses
- High pays for uploading videos on YouTube
As you can see, BBB described CashInfluence in their warnings/alerts – that’s because they’ve already encountered A LOT of these clone/scam sites. To put it simply, BBB knows exactly how scam sites like CashInfluence really work.
On the the other hand, you can also find legit online survey sites listed at the Better Business Bureau (like Survey Junkie for example... screenshot below)...
Market research companies like Survey Junkie are a simple way to get paid for your opinion. Swag Bucks is another site that pays you for doing things you may be doing online anyway, like searching the web, watching videos and visiting websites.
Of course, they don't pay $500 - $1000 per day like CashIfluence falsely claims, but if you've never made money online before, legit online surveys can be a good place to start.
For something more significant, an online business may be what you're looking for.
Making money from home might be something you need because of medical issues, children to look after, or maybe you're just tired of working for a boss.
If that’s the case, knowing how (and where) to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.
CashInfluence Reviews and Complaints
As I said a while ago, CashInfluence is only a few weeks old at the time of this review. And that’s why you won’t find complaints about being scammed by them (yet).
What we do know though, is that this is the same scam as dozens of others... one of them already shown above being Tap2Earn.
So, I can give you some predictions of what CashInfluence complaints will look like because we've seen this happen over and over again with their other scams.
Below, you will see the complaints people have made about Tap2Earn...
I also revealed above that CashInfluence was the same as Cash4Clickz.
Here are some complaints from that scam...
As you can see, people are complaining about not getting paid, being locked out, and getting scammed by these scam sites.
These sites don't only waste your time, but they are extremely dangerous.
What I Like About CashInfluence
Like you, I wanted CashInfluence to be real... but it really is too good to be true.
Again, we're talking about life changing money with the potential to change the world. There are places where $500 - $1000 day would transform entire communities.
But it's not real... so I’m sure you’d agree there’s nothing to like about CashInfluence.
What I Don't Like
- CashInfluence is a scam
- They give you hope and make you feel like your life is really about to change, and then they crush that hope. This is exceptionally cruel.
- If crushing your hopes is not enough, they will sell your information and your accounts will potentially be hacked and/or your identity stolen.
Where Do You Go From Here?
I know you wanted to hear CashInfluence was legit. If you're struggling for money and financially unable to get ahead (or even falling behind), they sound like the perfect solution.
And that's what they prey upon. They know people are hurting and struggling to make ends meet. They know it's not getting easier out there, it's getting tougher.
I wish I could say they were not a scam, but I can't. In fact, like the Better Business Bureau warning about their sister scams, my advice is the same. To stay away from these sites.
Also, you’ve seen the complaints about Tap2Earn and Cash4Clickz… I sincerely feel for those who fell prey to these scams because they (like you and I) just want to live a little easier, and to give their families a better life.
It makes me angry that these types of scam sites are always out there hurting people. Especially when they flood the web and make it that much harder for people to find the legit sites.
You might be a student in school or a single parent at home. You may have challenges with your health that make regular work difficult, or maybe you just hate your job and you’re desperate for a way out.
If that's the case, an online business is what you want.
But with all the scams and schemes out there like CashInfluence, knowing how and where to get started the right way is what you need in order to get what you want.
If you're just looking for a simple way to make some extra spending money, "real" online survey and get-paid-to sites are good way to get started. They don't pay the ridiculous amounts CashInfluence claims to pay... but when it comes time to cash out, they actually pay.
Again... I need to be clear. These sites won't make you rich, but if you've never made money online before, they can be a good first step and can even lead to bigger things down the road.
I hope my CashInfluence review has been helpful and if you have any comments, questions, or experience with CashInfluence, please share in the comments section below.
