Paid 4 Clout (Paid4Clout) is a scam!
Operating as an identical replica of the CloutPay Scam, which we exposed a little over a month ago, Paid4Clout.com is nothing more than a copy-and-pasted template of the social network geared scam known as CloutPay.
Actively operating as an effective phishing scam, Paid4Clout pretends to generously reward their ‘members’ up to $10 to $15 for every friend you invite to join Paid4Clout.
Do NOT believe the hype though, it is entirely fabricated just like the testimonials and paid actors that we expose later on.
To learn more regarding the Paid 4 Clout Scam we invite you to read our investigative review.
- Operates as a phishing scam
- Incorporates fabricated testimonials
- Replica of the Clout Pay social network scam
- Claims to have paid out over $44 million since their inception
- Hires paid actors from Fiverr.com to give misleading ‘reviews’
- States to possess over 300k members while research reveals differently
- Claims to be founded in 2015, yet WHOIS reveals site was founded 07/12/2019
About Paid 4 Clout
Paid4Clout.com claims to be the #1 Influencer Network, which enables everyday people to earn $10 to $15 for every friend they invite to join Paid4Clout.
According to their About Us page, “Paid 4 Clout was founded in 2015 to help regular social media users turn their usage into money.”
This is the same About Us template used within the Clout Pay scam, which we exposed in our in-depth Clout Pay Review – although this comes to little surprise since every element of Paid 4 Clout is nearly identical to Clout Pay.
Further down their About Us page, we are confronted with the following bold claim:
“Over $44M paid to over 300k members.”
Claiming to have paid out over $44 million to date when this site was created just over 2 weeks ago is outlandish to say the least, sure they may incorporate images of ‘payment proof’ but they are fabricated none-the-less.
How the Scam Works
Paid 4 Clout is said to operate in a 3 step capacity.
Join Paid 4 Clout.
Invite your friends to their site by sharing your influencer link, for every friend you invite that joins their site you’ll allegedly be paid $10.
Cash out your earnings instantly via PayPal, CashApp, Bitcoin, mailed checks, and more.
This seems like a great business model, right?
Of course it does but it isn’t true nor a sustainable business model.
Instead, you are confronted with only elaborate theatrics that are geared towards further enticing you to sign up with their scam.
You see, Paid4Clout functions more or less as a phishing scam, where their sole objective would be to obtain sensitive information from their users such as usernames, passwords and credit card details.
So not only are you putting yourself at risk by joining their scam network but you are also, in turn, putting your friends and family in the same boat as you by simplifying referring them to their scam site.
No one is actually making money with the Paid 4 Clout scam – just like it was with the Clout Pay scam.
Paid 4 Clout does not share a physical address or telephone number.
In addition, consumers are said to be able to reach out to their operators via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook yet the social widgets they incorporate on their site solely bring you back to their Contact Us page while we were unable to find any social profiles.
We found reference to Paid 4 Clout, Pty Ltd. in the footer of Paid4Clout.com, however, after cross-referencing that corporate entity across multiple business registrars and various search queries we were unable to confirm the legitimacy of Paid 4 Clout, Pty Ltd.
This was the same thing that happen to us when we investigated the alleged corporate entity behind Clout Pay (Clout Pay, Pty Ltd.).
As a whole, it is evident that Paid 4 Clout is operating with complete anonymity.

Paid4Clout.com was privately registered on July 12th, 2019 through the NameCheap, Inc registrar.
As of July 29th, 2019, Paid4Clout.com failed to reflect any web rankings on SimilarWeb, a market intelligence website.
Like its predecessor (CloutPay.co), Paid 4 Clout failed to reflect any web rankings but since both scams are built upon the principle of leveraging social media networks we imagine that Paid4Clout will accumulate most of their traffic via social networks.
The testimonials used at Paid4Clout are the same ones used at CloutPay.co.
As you can see for yourself, none of the testimonials of their ‘happy members’ are legitimate.
To add, Paid 4 Clout claims to be affiliated with brands such as Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonalds, Fortnite Battle Royale, Target and Wendy’s but this is a lie and just another desperate attempt to appear more credible than they truly are.
Paid 4 Clout Warning Signs
Lack of Transparency
There is no verifiable ownership or contact information shared at Paid4Clout.com.
The only method that consumers are left to connect with these operators with would be through email (email@example.com) but we doubt that these operators are responding.
Like Clout Pay, Paid 4 Clout operates with blatant anonymity.
Claiming to have paid out over $44 million to date even though the site was registered less than 3 weeks ago is absolutely preposterous – not to mention that the claims are ALL the same claims from Clout Pay.
Paid 4 Clout relies upon the same fake testimonials that we exposed in affiliation with Clout Pay.
Paid Actors (Fabricated Reviews)
As you can see in the image below, Paid 4 Clout hires paid actors from Fiverr to deliver misleading and untrue video testimonials regarding their experiences with Paid 4 Clout (although they are nearly all the same videos used in the Clout Pay scam).
Replica of the CloutPay Scam
Paid 4 Clout reflects an identical site template and nearly ALL of the same information as the Clout Pay Scam we exposed last month.
We imagine that Paid4Clout.com will not be the last scam of this iteration that we will be encountering so make sure to stay tuned for future reviews.

Paid 4 Clout Scam Review
Paid 4 Clout is a dangerous and deceptive phishing scam.
Claiming that people can generate up to $500 per day by simply referring friends and family members to their site via social networks is a flat out lie.
Not only that but as we have shown you, every characteristic of the Paid 4 Clout scam is composed from the Clout Pay phishing scam and cannot be trust.
The so-called testimonials are absolutely bogus while hiring paid actors for as little as $10 to lie and to use as a credibility booster just goes to show how scummy this social network phishing scam truly is.
Outcome: Paid4Clout is a Scam!
