Uwork Review; Is Uwork Legit or a Scam?

Many jobs have been lost, businesses collapsed, investments crashed; all in all, the pandemic has been a very challenging period.

Taking advantage of the challenging situation, we’ve seen the uprising of many income programs, pyramid schemes, and the likes. Sadly, we can hardly point out one that has been consistently paying so far.

While I don’t normally make these kinds of posts, it has become somewhat necessary in this period, as I won’t want anyone to lose their bucks.

In the midst of all these, another income program sprang up, making promises as bold as those of its ancestors. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Uwork!


What is Uwork?

I don’t know about you, but I appreciate free registration income sites. At least at the end of the day, if I end up losing, I could say: “well, I lost no bucks.”

Uwork is a free member registration site where you perform some tasks to earn real money. These tasks involve renting out your social media handles to advertisers, who pay you to promote their products.

For one, that sounds like “social media misuse” to me. I can’t afford to spam my friends and loved ones with some ugly-looking links all in the name of making some chicken change.

Also, Uwork doesn’t sound like a great name to me. I’m very lazy, and I’m looking for where to get free money. Why slam it on my face that I have to work?

Jokes aside, Uwork pays you when you complete an advertisers’ task or get more registrations through your link.


Uwork interface design

The Uwork.ng website has a straightforward interface, which I praise for its aesthetics.

But I’ll be honest, it has very difficult to understand user experience which I can only describe as stupid. I had to watch a YouTube video to understand how to complete a task (which I never completed anyway). Nobody ever wants to do that.

The app is even worse. It seems the website was ported to the app using a free online tool, so it looked like a replica at first glance.

However, I’d be very happy if it’s anything near a replica; in fact, just ignore the app if you want to enjoy Christmas.


Uwork Investment Plans

I said earlier that registration for Uwork is free, but I guess I wasn’t totally correct. Uwork has four plans, each with varying investment costs. They’re analyzed below.

  1. VIP0 PLAN

The VIP0 plan is the lowest Uwork plan you can get. It costs nothing to register for this plan, so I guess I’m not a liar anyway.

You get a registration bonus of $0.3 instantly when you register for this plan, but it resides in your Uwork wallet anyway. You can withdraw from your Uwork wallet when you get to a specific threshold.

You get around two cents for each individual you refer in the VIP0 plan, making it $1 for five referrals. All in all, you’re estimated to make around $35 monthly as a minimum, without any maximum limit, making it a compelling Uwork.ng plan too.

  1. VIP1 PLAN

The Uwork VIP1 plan has more compelling benefits, but requires monthly investments, with an estimated monthly revenue of about $145 each month, minimally.

  1. VIP2 PLAN

The VIP2 plan, as expected, requires a higher monthly investment that pays off, because the minimum monthly payout for VIP2 members shoots up to over $400.

  1. VIP3 PLAN

The VIP3 plan doesn’t look so interesting to me, with a minimum monthly payout of just above $500. While it might sound a little bit higher than the preceding one, it is unimpressive, as members have to make a monthly investment reaching $300.

This brings the minimum net profit of the VIP3 members to about $70 less than that of the VIP2 plan.

That was my first impression, but it seems I was wrong. VIP3 members have access to more high-paying tasks than members, which might shoot their monthly earnings far above the minimum figure, with less effort.

However, note that the concept of Uwork is still relatively new and there isn’t enough information yet to give a flawless review. Quickly point out any, if you notice a flaw.

How to earn on Uwork

It’s relatively simple to earn on Uwork if you already know your way around. Otherwise, you’ll spend hours meddling with the confusing interface without even getting a task done.

To avoid the hassle associated with completing tasks on Uwork, follow this simple guide.

Open the website at www.uwork.ng. You don’t want to use the app, or you’ll be frustrated, I promise.

  • Create an account

It’s actually surprising that at the first visit, you won’t be greeted with a page begging you to sign up. Just a list of tasks like you’re a regular member.

Clicking (or tapping on) any of the tasks takes you to a signup page, anyway.

  • Select a task from the homepage

There is a long list of tasks on the homepage. Scroll through the list and find one that’s appropriate for your current plan.

Note that you won’t be allowed to complete a task marked V3 at VIP0, VIP1, or VIP2 membership level. The only plan that’s allowed to access all tasks is VIP3, obviously!

When you find a task to complete, scroll down on the task page, and tap “Receive”.

  • Copy the text content and download the attached image

After tapping receive you’re to copy both the text content and the image provided. A save button below the image will make the job easier.

  • Spam your social handles with the link

Don’t get angry with me over this, I’m just being honest. You have to spam your Facebook profile with the post and the picture.

Don’t forget to take a screenshot of the post (and ensure that you set your post visibility to Public).

  • Submit the task

This is the trickiest part. Uwork developers weren’t smart enough to understand that humans are not wizards.

The submit button is hidden away on the Tasks page. You can get to the Tasks page by tapping on the tab underneath.

Now, look at the very top right corner of the screen, and tap on the icon there. Here, you’ll see all tasks you’ve marked as Received and you’ll be able to complete them by uploading your screenshot.

Easy huh?

You are welcome.


Is Uwork Scam?

And now to what everyone wants to hear, is Uwork.ng legit, or just another cheap scheme trying to make away with users’ sweat.

To determine this, we’ll go over some of the common characteristics of similar scams and decide.

Uwork.ng Age

This is certainly much of a red flag for the poor income site. The domain name “UWORK.NG” was registered on the 25th of November 2020.

Wow, so this whole program isn’t up to a week in age —amazing.

That’s not what scared me away, just continue reading.

Uwork Founders

Let me tell you here and now, Uwork has no page or information about its founders or management whatsoever.

This quality is not only a red flag; it is a deep red flag coated in ketchup. I’ll be straight with you here; every single income program I know, without ownership or leadership has ended in tears, for obvious reasons.


While it might take a lot of patience to figure out, Uwork.ng misinforms users of their Uwork.ng website.

Navigate to the “Rankings” tab from the homepage. Discovered anything fishy?

I’ll tell you what’s fishy.

Almost every name on that list isn’t a Nigerian name, but the website is using a Nigerian domain and should mostly appeal to a Nigerian audience.

Spoiler, those are randomly generated names.

To prove my point, take a look at their earnings. The top-earning user has made close to $4k in the past week alone.

If you switch to the year tab, you’ll see some even more unbelievable numbers. How someone has made close to that figure in just three weeks with a new income program is what baffles me.

So, you want to tell me that an income program that has been around for about three weeks has paid up to that amount to a single person — and I’m having trouble finding a single positive online review of them.

That’s creepy.


Uwork has garnered a whole lot of positive reviews, and a little bit of the opposite too. While I got some complaints from people who couldn’t get their pay, the positives outweighed the negatives.

Opening the app reviews on Google Play, I was greeted with the angry rant of someone who couldn’t process payment due to the inability to receive the authentication code.

But looking at the comments, and from social media testimonies, one can conclude that Uwork has no bad intentions yet.

Uwork.ng, Legit or Scam

Update: Uwork is a confirmed scam!

Over time, Uwork has proven to be a legitimate program, with many users attesting to the legitimacy of the program. So, it is rated as “legit at the moment.”

However, you’re free to go up there, read and re-read the posts, sleep over it, and try to decide if it is the income program for you.

Everything boils down to the golden advice of online businesses: “only invest what you can afford to lose.”


Have you ever been scammed or paid by Uwork?

I’d love to have your inputs below.

  3. I’m not concerned about the legit or not now? I read something like monthly payment from post. I thought uwork Upgrades is valid for life?😏

  4. To me uwork don’t have future, a platform that lures people with free reg, and later come up with one upgrade of v1,v2 or v3 after claiming to have signed 5million dollar contract, your v0 earning can not be withdrawed after it expires, you have to upgrade b4 that is possible. And what is so special about their advert, Jumia, Slot and Tecno are as popular as the air we breath in.

  5. Uwork is not yet scam but it will be very soon
    Uwork is like a little brother to the so-called Insme which just crashed yesterday
    If Uwork isn’t scam they should give us back our money since we can’t do the upgrade
    Please if I didn’t agreed to that don’t go for upgrade because you will later regret it
    Uwork please refund my money I don’t have another one for the upgrade you are requesting for

  6. Hi I believe I have been scammed . I paid for the v3 slots which cost for 300dollars and within a week of doing my task which I have earned 88 dollars . Uwork said I can’t withdraw unless I make another payment of 300 dollars.. how will I put my money in a business that I haven’t cashed out yet ..

  7. This is actually painful,how can UWORK will come with unreasonable ideas of saying UPGRADE, upgrade to were???those person that have been in the plat form should be allowed to take there pay first, then it will be related to others that this is really legit. This plat form is not up to a year,and I no that is not up to “UPGRADING”

  8. I registered for INSME but nowadays, the same website opens uwork. Even INSME app opens uwork. It is now seeing all registered INSME users as unregistered. It’s either the same people are in control of the website or iWork hacked INSME meaning BEWARE!

  9. uwork paid me once after a week of applying, but now they are not paying because i applied for a withdrawal 7 days ago but still nothing. even the tasks are the same always now, i think their activities are about to halt, i am not hoping for that though

  10. I upgrade not up to 2weeks n am ask to upgrade again I later apply for cashout up til now my upgrade n that of my son is still pending why uwork I have not achieved anything from uwork u guys scam me of #14,850 n my son of 7425 pli need refund

  11. U work is a very big scam I wish u guys ll help others to be aware of this pls don’t lets them fall dsame we were because for us we are already victims

  12. I read all the your views and I must confess, you’re really a genius, if we really paid attention like you did, we wouldn’t have been victims.
