According to the Duty Kid Website, many of their members are earning $300 per day and upwards of $5000 per month. I’ve also seen that posted around the Web, so a lot of people must think that there’s money to be made with this site.
On the other hand, there’s little information on the home page itself, aside from a stretched and out-of-proportion photo of a young woman and the phrase, “Start Earning from Home Today!” OK, so what is Duty Kid all about? I decided to sign up and see what’s going on there.
Can you really make $5000 per month with Duty Kid? Doing what? Is Duty Kid a scam?
Read on for the full Duty Kid review.
Duty Kid Overview
You’ll never have an easier time signing up for a Website than you will at Duty Kid. You give them an email address, a username, and a password, and then you can log in. You don’t have to verify the password and you don’t have to confirm the email address.
Once you’re logged in, you’ll be at the Duty Kid “dashboard.” I put that in quotes, because there’s really very little to the screen. You’ll see your special referral link that you’re going to use to add money to your Duty Kid account balance.
You’ll see the amount of your account balance, which should be $25 when you sign in, as they put $25 in there as a “bonus” when you sign up.
You’ll also see the “task” that you have to perform for which they’ll supposedly pay you money. What’s the task? I’ll just copy the text here verbatim:
=> TASK : Use the link below to generate traffic and earn money 5-10$ for every unique visitor that clicks your link and visit it.
Good places to start posting your link are social websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Youtube, forums, chat rooms, blogs, etc.
That’s it. That’s all there is to the Duty Kid site, aside from a few questions in their FAQ section, which explain that they want you to help them to get traffic to their site so that they can make money from their advertisers. That’s a bit odd, since the site doesn’t have any advertising on it at all.
The only other link on the site is to a “Terms and Conditions” page, and when you click that link, it takes you to a “not found” error.
So, when you sign up, you’ll come to a page that gives you a link, and they ask you to share it, and when you do, they’ll add $10 to your account balance.
According to the Duty Kid FAQ section, when you reach $300, you can ask to be paid, and they say they’ll pay you by one of six methods: PayPal, Payza, Moneygram, Western Union, check, or wire transfer.
If you have a huge following on Facebook or Twitter, you probably can get a bunch of people to sign up underneath you, and every time you do, you’ll see your Duty Kid balance increase by $10. It can happen really quickly, and I guess that’s why so many people on the Web are excited about it and posting here and there that you should sign up.
So, Duty Kid sounds easy to join, and the work seems easy to do, and it shouldn’t take long to get that balance up to $300 so you can get paid.
What’s the problem with Duty Kid? Or is there one?
There is a problem with Duty Kid, and it’s a big one – they will not pay you.
The people who run the site are interested in getting people to their site, but not in the way that they describe. They’re interested in getting people to sign up so they can take advantage of them financially. There are several ways in which they can do this:
- They have your email address. Once they have that, you can expect to start getting a lot of spam email.
- If you try to get paid, they’ll likely end up with your PayPal address. Then they can try to hack your PayPal account.
- Duty Kid can try to make money from you via Cost Per Action (CPA) offers.
The company that owns Duty Kid owns dozens, or perhaps even hundreds, of Websites. They all work the same way, and none of them every pay anyone. When you reach the $300 threshold for getting paid and ask for payment, you’ll have to click a link. When you do, you’ll get redirected to another page that says you cannot access the page until you complete an offer to verify that you are human.
“Completing an offer” means filling out a short form to qualify for a free gift card, or a free iPhone, or some other giveaway. To qualify for that offer, you’ll have to provide your full name and email address and (depending on the offer) possibly a credit card number.
Once you do that, you’ll find that you’re suddenly getting swamped with sales offers from the companies whose offer you filled out. What about getting paid by Duty Kid? That doesn’t happen; they’re not going to pay you at all.
The entire point of getting you to sign up for the site is to get you to fill out the offer when you request payment. Why? Because those offers pay a few dollars to the people who host them every time someone completes one. They don’t pay a lot; they only pay $1-$5 on average. But when you have hundreds of people per day filling them out from dozens of Websites, the money can add up in a hurry.
Yes, Duty Kid can be a very profitable Website, and yes, people are making thousands of dollars per month from it. But the people making that money are the people who own the Website, and not the people who are members there.
Duty Kid Summary
Duty Kid is a waste of time. You won’t get paid. You might end up with a bunch of spam or you might get your PayPal account hacked. If you want to learn how to make money, visit this site instead of Duty Kid. You’ll find that it’s a better way to spend your time.
Duty Kid is just another misleading Website from a company that owns hundreds of them. Stay away.
Duty Kid is not recommended.
