You are doing some research about digital marketing products and you would like to find out more about this one called Clout Bucks.
Is Clout Bucks a Scam or legit?
I am glad you do your due diligence since there are so many misleading products out there, one can easily lose hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars.
We will go through this system step-by-step.
Let’s find out who the owner is, how much this product costs, what can you learn, and at the end you will know for sure whether to join the Clout Bucks or stay away from it.
I always look at the registration date of the website first, so I have a clue about how old the product is, and if there is any traffic to the website. The reason why I look at the registration date is simple.
Sometimes there is a website with a digital product promising unrealistic incomes, the registration date is let’s say September 2019 and in the sales video, they show you some screenshots with incomes that are from April 2019.
This information alone makes me suspicious and I have hard time believing the rest of the information they gave me.
The website cloutbucks.com was created at the end of May 2019. Right from the beginning, they started to have decent traffic, although the traffic began to deteriorate in July towards Autumn 2019.
In October it had about 500,000 monthly visits.

Product Overview – Is Clout Bucks a Scam?
Clout Buck is a system promising to make hundreds online with Social Media. They claim one can make up to $500 a day.
Let me tell you right off the bat that this is not true.
As soon as I started to do the research I have found many comments on social platforms and YouTube, saying that people just can’t cash out!
We will explain it later.
Here are 3 steps on how this system works (or should work since the last step doesn’t work at all)
- Sign up – This is for free. Once you are inside the system you get your special link
- Share – You can use this link on social media and invite your friends/followers to the CB site. You are promised to make $10 for everyone who clicks and join.
- Cash Out – On their website, there are several ways how you can cash out, ironically none of them work
Here is alarming information.
None of the customers get the money.
Sure it shows some balance inside the CB platform but when you request to get the cash you are told that it takes several weeks.
Then, your request is rejected.
The reason is, according to the CB system, that the clicks you received are not valid and therefore the referrals are fake. That is why you are not allowed to get the cash.
Also if you check their Facebook page you see that the admin posted some excuse saying, they have problems with the bank.
What kind of BS is this?
Besides, it is interesting that there are about 220 people who follow/like the CB Facebook page.
We see that on their home page there is a different number.
I mean, it could be that not all the members are Facebook fans. I understand that.
But I was reading a different Clout Bucks review which was done a few weeks after the cloutbucks.com website creation date (beginning of June)
Interestingly enough, today as of November 26th they have the same number of members.
It reminds me of the system called PaidLeaf. They both have a similar website structures and the same fake claims.
They both must be related.
Inside the platform of CB, there is no way how to find out how many members are actually active or what is the real number.
Let me share with you that it is possible to choose any figure one wants via the plugin, as per the video below.
Looking at the testimonials it is obvious that these are made up. They don’t use the actors as we can see in many ClickBank products (for example AZ Sniper or Profit Genesis 2.0) but they have us screenshots of fake profiles with some figures.
The Good & the Bad
- Everyone can join for free (you need to give your email though)
- Scam system – There is no way a client can get his money out of the system
- Support video not available
- Owner not known
Who is it For?
This system is supposed to be for people who want to earn easy money. In most cases, such a system simply doesn’t work and that is applicable for Clout Bucks as well.
I am sure by now you understand that there is no way you can make money with the CB.
- There is no way one can cash out
- You are wasting your time and you put your personal data in jeopardy
If you are interested in how to make money online fast, I am afraid I can’t help you. In my opinion, there is not such a thing as fast money even though we are talking about online business.
There are many systems out there promising you easy money such as digital income system or prosperity income network, but the truth is these are pyramid schemes and one can literally lose thousands of dollars.
Fortunately, the Clout Bucks is for free, but as I said nobody has ever got the money transferred into his or her account.
I know how frustrated it can be for a person searching for a legit platform. I was there as well. It took me about 2 years until I found the platform with a lot of training, video courses, helpful community. I have learned how to create a website, how to drive free traffic, and eventually how to monetize the traffic.
Was it overnight? I guess it took me about 100 nights to get my first sale online.
Again, if you are a newbie and you think there is a way how to earn a quick buck I must disappoint you.
Take a deep breath, close your laptop or phone and come back tomorrow.
Clout Bucks Tools & Training
There is no fee to join this system.
But you have to provide them with your email address, full name, and user name.
You can even try it on your own, just don’t use your standard email address. There is a suspicion that they “steal” your email address with the password.
Then they use them and try to get on different platforms you use as well.
So if you happen to join the CB, just make sure you change your password on another site you use.
If you have not joined the CB dashboard yet, good, then let me show you how the back-office looks like.
I am sure with the information you got by now you wouldn’t join the CB and that is the purpose of this review.
To warn you about this scam called Clout Bucks.
The platform is pretty easy to comprehend.
You get your special link and then you post it on Facebook or any or any other social media.
If people click and join you should get credit.
I won’t go too much into details since we know how it works – actually, it does not work at all.
Just out of a curiosity, this is how the post on Facebook would look like (I wrote the sentence “This is Scam!”)
Inside the dashboard, there is a section for support. At the very bottom of the menu, there is this Help button.
To my surprise, there are videos that are not available anymore.
It is very disturbing since the product is on only half a year and it already has some flaws.
Also, there is “Jessica” – support on Skype.
I would expect that it is clickable but apparently you have to search for her using Skype manually.
I must admit, this is not very professional support for a system with 185K members.
Clout Bucks Price Structure
Usually, when there is a platform where is free access it is a good thing.
But it is not the case with Cout Bucks
We have already covered why.
This Scam is not to steal money from you, but your personal data.
They can easily take collect email addresses to build a list and then sell this list to a 3rd party.
Also, I want to mention that this system appears to have the “Cash Out” function as per this screenshot.
I did double-check and triple-checked comments and other reviews and there is nobody saying that successfully transferred the money to his or her account.
My Final Opinion of Clout Bucks
I have only one thing for you – Stay away from Clout Bucks
It is a new system, but my best bet is that it will be shut down soon.
We have covered the red flags of the CB and as hard as I try to find some positive aspects of it, I just can’t figure out any of them.
- there is no owner – we don’t know who is behind this product
- testimonials are fake
- there is no way you can cash out (I believe there are no actual money to be made)
- they steal your data
What comes to my mind is just one sentence:
“It’s outrageous, egregious, preposterous.”
– Jackie Chiles (fictional character)
And at the end, let’s check the real reviews I just spotted on their Facebook page.
These are legit reviews and none of them is positive.
I recommend you stay away from this system.
How Does a Legit Platform Looks Like?
I wanted to cheer you up a bit with the last comment 🙂
Anyways, if you looking for ways how to make money online and you want to learn new stuff I think I can help you.
You can have a look at my other review and let me know what do you think of it (use the comment section below, either here or at the other post).
Just shortly, it is an educational platform with a proven number of members 🙂
There are more than 1 million members, but honestly, there are only 200,000+ active members. This platform was created in August 2005.
You can learn step-by-step how to create a website, what such a website needs in order to rank well on google, yahoo and bing as well. Learning that it is just one step away from monetizing the website.
There are many ways how you can earn money online. Imagine how you can change your life with that kind of knowledge in a year from now.
Yes, the thing is you must think long-term. There is a plethora of training and to grasp it and apply it all, requires some time.
But those who are patients have a 4 or 5 digit income (per month). I have included also some success stories at the end of the review.
Clout Bucks at a Glance…
Name: Clout Bucks
Price: Advertised Price $0
Owners: N/A (It is never a good sign when there is no real person behind the system)
My ranking for the Clout Bucks is the worst I can give.
I know that I gave the same ranking to some ClickBank products where you have at least a money-back guarantee.
You are right that with Clout Bucks you won’t lose any money but you can get into trouble and that is not something you can get back.
So again let me warn you if you happen to sign up for this system using your usual password you use it also at other sites, make sure you are going to change it.
Let me know if you have a question about the Clout Bucks;

Please help to resolve the issue, I can’t login again
as I said earlier, the Clout Bucks site is down.
And when every Clout Bucks review says that it is a scam and nobody gets paid, then most likely nobody gets paid. Why would you want to hope that you will get paid?
Please understand, that your issues might be resolved only by the clout bucks support. That did not exist in the first place, let alone now – when the entire site is shut down.
Hope it helps
My problem is not whether it’s a legit or scam, I want to follow clout bucks system to the end and confirm it by myself, my problem is that I don’t have access to my account, anytime I try to login it will be telling me system error, what can I do
Hello Amos Livingstone,
Do you know why the problem occurred?
Because the entire website is closed down. The site just does not work anymore.
It is not accessible.
The reason is – too many people complain about not getting paid.
You are one of them as well.
My advice is to forget about the CloutBucks.
Hope I made myself understood
