Lately, I’ve reviewed a few mail decoy jobs that are legit. One of the sites on the list is called US Monitor. US Monitor hires agents and pays them $10 a month to report when they receive mail.
I decided to write this US Monitor Agent review because a few readers are asking if this is a scam or a legit way to make money. US Monitor seems to be completely legit but does look like they have a long waiting list to be hired. You can still apply, but if they already have agents in your area, you might not get hired right away.
Please understand that although this site is legitimate, it’s a tiny income and will never earn you much. If you’re serious about making a full-time income online, check out My #1 Recommendation to learn how I made over $13,000 last month online!
In this US Monitor review, I’ll cover how it works, how much they pay, and show proof this is a scam free mail decoy job!
US Monitor Agent Requirements & Application
The only real requirements to become a US Monitor Agent is to be over 18 years of age and live in the US. They occasionally hire outside of the US so you can check if you’re interested. You’ll need to commit at least 1 hour Monday-Saturday and have access to the internet.
The application is super easy. You need to enter in your personal information and answer a few questions about your residence, how long you’ve lived there, and what type of mail you already receive.
After you submit the application, you’ll be contacted if they’re interested. It depends if there’s a need for people in your area. It looks like you’ll be put on a waitlist if they might need people in your area in the future. But you might not ever hear anything back if there’s no need for people in your area.
How Much Does US Monitor Pay?
US Monitor pays their agents $10 a month. They also pay $.25 per piece of mail that you process. From the look of things, there’s no guarantee you’ll receive mail each month so you might only make $10 a month.
Some members report making over $100 a month, but of course, they have to work more since they have to report each piece of mail.
This isn’t going to be a huge income, no matter where you live. If you get accepted you can use this for extra cash; the income won’t be anything more than that.
How Much Time Does This Take?
On their website, US Monitor says that most members spend less than 1 hour each day reporting mail. Honestly, I’m not a member and don’t see how it could take you over an hour to report mail each day, but it does say you do have to log on each day, even if you didn’t receive any mail.
For $10 a month the time commitment seems to be a bit much to me. I’m not exactly sure how long it takes to log on and tell them you have no mail, I’d think just a few seconds. But when they say, most members spend less than an hour each day, it seems that there’s more to it than just saying “hey no mail here.”
Is US Monitor A Scam Or Legit?
US Monitor is legit and scam free, but there’s no guarantee you’ll get accepted to the program. Since it’s such easy work, there’s a lot of people interested. There’s a chance that your area might not need any new members.
If you do get accepted, you’ll get paid $10 or more each month. To me, this seems like a pretty good time commitment just for $10 a month, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.
