One of the ways you could waste your time is to sign up for websites/portal that promise you that you’d make between $2 to $7 per news.
If that’s possible it means you are sure of making at least $40 per day if you read 20 news, which $2 per news.
HOW REALISTIC IS THIS?
“There are over 3.7billion people worldwide who are connected to the cyberspace, 93 million of them are Nigerians,” internetworldstats.com statistics says.
One of the major online news platforms today (July 30, 2017) says you can earn money online while working from home.
“You are expected to read a number of news articles daily. Each article you read earns you between $2, $4 and $7 (depending on the website). You could also make more money by earning a certain percentage when you refer other people to the site,” naij.com
Don’t be deceived, no website can pay you $7 for reading news on its website.
To make $7 from Google Adsense per day means you must have been in blogging business for at least three months or more, and with steady traffic.

How To Identify Scam Read News And Get Paid Online Websites
They usually promise you a ridiculous amount per week for such easy work, that could be tasking for a guru in online marketing to achieve in a month.
Most of the time, about us page and other pages are written in badly constructed English.
Another red flag in websites that promote get paid to read news online is the minimum for cash out, unbelievable amount like $1200, $1500 and another tempting amount in dollars. It’s part of the gimmick.
None of the websites has real contact information. You can only send complaint email, which will never be responded to. Legitimate websites and business will provide genuine contact information.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU REACH MINIMUM PAYOUT?
If you request for cash out, your request will be hanging or still processing till eternity.
After a while, some of these SCAM websites go offline, and come back with different name, but with the same methodology. An example of such is startofnews.com, when the domain expired, it came back with another three of such phishing websites.
Real at home jobs will not promise you $90 per day or more.
The bottom line is get paid to read news websites isn’t limited to the ones listed in this post. They usually come with different names. Steer clear.
If you’ve found another fake read news and get paid websites in Nigeria or in any part of the World, drop the domain name.
