So i’ll be very clear here

I belong to a third world country and dont have mturk account but i saw on a forum a guy asking americans to lend him their accounts and he will pay them abt 200$ monthly

So i sent that a message if he wants to hire workers as i am looking for some side work, i can work 8 hrs on mturk

So he told me he will pay me 200$ monthly for 8 hrs a day, i would have to manage 3 accounts

If he is paying 200$ each to mturk owners each
And 200$ me , i assume he will take 50 and give 25% me and 25
to owner


Does Mturk accounts earn that much or he will let me work and then block me off sites so he can take all i earned

Has anyone of you rented your mturk account?

P.s i know people rent accounts, they dont get banned, the question is do they earn that much for him to pay me $200 monthly and give to owner and take money himself too?

p.s he also said 100$ target is hit by most of his workers weekly, so for 2.5 hrs a day for 6 days is it possible?
Renting out accounts is a violation of MTurk's Participation Agreement and it's not something we allow here either. And yes, when Amazon finds out, the accounts do get banned.

Locking this.
