Newsontop17 Review – A Scam? YES!!

newsontop17 review couple smiling with an iphone

This is a simple review on the latest scam – Newsontop17 – where the claim is to read the news clips, do the math, confirm, tell others, and get paid. It does not work that way, so beware.

Be careful, read the news and not #newsontop17 - it is a #scam!Click To Tweet

It is ‘BRAND spanking new’…and I decided to check it out first-hand. After all, reading the news for 10 minutes each day was not bad – at least so I thought. The incentive to read the news and get paid a whopping $7 per article made it all the more appealing yet.

So, off to reading I went.

I read for a few days – 30 articles/news briefs – and of course, told a few friends to join me.

After all, it seemed like easy money and fun at the same time. So, I read a few articles and soon it was time to cash-out – there is a minimum of $800 before you can cash out.

Then I applied for my cash-out. Then it tells me, I needed to ‘read more – 58 more articles to be exact’, and I needed ‘+ one more involved partner’.

Ok, no problem, a few more days of news reading was not asking too much, and off I went.

I read more and got one more involved partner (I assumed it meant a referral). Then I went to see if I got paid – NOPE.

Now it was telling me, I STILL needed to read more – now ’85 articles’ and STILL ‘+ one more involved partner’.

That did it!

I stopped and went to the support and wrote a seething email of my disappointment, two emails in fact. To date, no reply.

I also went to the Better Business Bureau Greater San Francisco Area and made a complaint.

And now, I am here, writing a review to let others know – don’t waste your time and just turn on your TV and listen to the news if you feel the need.

What Is Newsontop17?

It is a website claiming to give anyone the opportunity to make money reading news articles online. The cost for reading the article is $7. You have the opportunity to read 15-30 articles daily. You will be able to get paid once your balance reaches $800.

Owner: Todd Han, Super Privacy Service LTD c/o Dynadot

Price: $0, only your time to read a news brief

How Does It Work?

You read the new articles, do a simple math addition, then confirm – then read the next article. It is suggested to get others to read as well – a referral – and this will put you in another ‘level’.

Once you have a balance over $800, you should/would (?) be paid for your reading efforts.


I subsequently did as thorough as I could, a check with and found out more information about this company.

Here is the WHOIS LINK:

Being only human, I was tempted by the thought of ‘easy money’ and well, another lesson learned. Well, as you can see at the beginning of this review, I participated and did not get paid. Please do not waste your time and effort on this website.

I am currently waiting on the results from the Better Business Bureau. I will update this review accordingly. In the meantime, I have told my story and hope it won’t be yours too.

If you are looking for a better opportunity to make some money online, check out my Wealthy Affiliate Review. It is simply having your own website, creating content (writing reviews like this one to help others) and getting your ‘voice’ online and showing you how to get started.

Of course, we are all human, and we sometimes ‘relish’ the idea of a ‘quick buck’, however, as you have seen from this review, it does not always work.

At least, when you have your own website, you are able to create valuable content and allow your audience to be the judge.

All the best.

When you learn how to build your own blog you get to choose the things that you write about. You can also use the blog to make extra income. Here is where I learned how to build my own blog and connect with people who helped me along the way.

    Hi Michelle It just amazes me how people come up with these scams.  We all get hit at some point with what I call the shiny object syndrome.  You know follow something thinking it is easy money.  You were lucky though since you did not have to pay anything.  I’m just wondering how they were making money, maybe through the referrals?

    • Michelle

      Hello Maureen, 

      Yes, it is truly amazing how some people are deceptive and try to take others along with them. Yes, I too am wondering what it is that they gain or have gained through this website…actually, it scares me to try to think of anything…it would probably even drive me crazy because all I will be doing is speculating and somehow, I will never know.

      All the best,

    Hey Michelle,

    Thanks a lot for this detailed review on “Newsontop17”. A couple of months back, I performed a Google search and read about Newsontop17 somewhere and it says that you can make money with this website. I tried it and nothing seems to work just because its a SCAM! 

    Do not try this platform as its complete FAKE! As mentioned in this article, the best bet is to go for Wealthy Affiliate if you’re interested in making passive income online. Its probably on of the best affiliate marketing training websites in the world.

    Thanks again Michelle. Keep up the good work!

      Hello AV 2001,

      Thanks for voicing your thoughts. Yes, there is so much mis-use of advertising online that one NEEDS to be careful. Even though I am aware, sometimes, the human side of me wins over…lol. 

      Well, tried and tested and now I know…and I want others to know. I hope it helps someone. And yes, Wealthy Affiliate is still one of the BEST platforms to learn about getting started online.

      All the best.

      Hello Louis,

      Thanks for your kind words. Yes, it was a learning experience for me, and one that I have publicized to show others as well remind others that we are only human and prone to ‘shiny object syndrome’…lol.

      But, as long as the lesson is learned, then life experience would have done its job.

      All the best.

    Dear Michelle,

    Thanks a lot for the helpful review post and I do came across this program couple of times. It’s really hard to believe and digest so I skipped it. Thanks for sharing your experience and helping us. Your thorough review came as a confirmation.

    I came across and tried few programs like this… After doing the work and referring people later when we realized its a scam program it hurts a lot and I gone through those pain. So I know how it hurts.

    Thanks a lot for saving people time and effort.

    I loved how easy the review makes it for readers. No additional research needed.

    Wishing you Great Success!


    • Michelle

      Hello Paul,

      Thank you so much for the confirmation and your kind words. Yes, unfortunately, there will be times where we fall victim to scams and the best part of the experience is to alert others so that they too will not go through the same deception that you went through.

      Glad to know that the information was useful and all the best.

    Hi Michelle,

    Thank you very much for testing this site, giving us your feedback. Thank for the WARNING. There are so many “get rich quick” schemes on the Internet. This work was too quick and easy for the promised amount of money.
    Also, thank you for the tip on how to make money online without being scammed. Wealthy Affiliate is a wonderful place to learn how and launch an online business.

    • Michelle

      Hello Julia,
      Thanks for your kind words. Yes indeed, there are many schemes with ‘no bottom’ to them out there and some do get ‘drawn in and possibly hurt ( financially or emotionally -stress which can even take its toll on your health too). Yes, up to this point, I still find Wealthy Affiliate to be one of the best educational platforms (out there) when it comes to getting started online.
      All the best.

  • DIanneBee

    Hi Michelle, yes I joined and tried for two days. I knew I could count on you to let us know if you did not get paid out. I noticed a couple of times when the page failed to reload properly that it is a Russian site. Oh well, we have to check things out sometimes, don’t we? I wonder if they’re just trying to collect Paypal addresses….

    • Michelle

      Hello Dianne,
      Good to see you again. Yes, this was a test/experience…it’s all good, only thing lost was my time, I did learn some interesting things in the news…lol. It is scary and I try not to think about the whole mission behind the website creation…just waiting to hear back from the BBB.
      Keep you posted

    On 27th of January Newsontop17 page closed and transfered me to webpage, where the work is the same, and I think it is a fake page also. Anyway, I will reach the required 999 dollars, I’ll need 5 days for that, and after if I will not able to withdraw my earned money, I will finish my ‘work’ on the internet!

    • Michelle

      Hello Eric,
      Interesting…goo luck and be sure to let me know how things turn out.
