Can you earn money by simply liking a YouTube video?

A Twitter user named Udita Pal (@i_Udita) who is the Co-founder of Salt (@saltpe_) recently shared a post on her Twitter handle showing how someone tried duping her over WhatsApp. She shared a series of screenshots to show her communication with a scammer on WhatsApp. According to the screenshots, the scammer offered a job opportunity where she had to watch a YouTube video for 10 seconds and like and subscribe to it. Notably, the link of the video will be sent by the scammer. The scammer further asked her to share the screenshot of the same and in return she will be paid 150 rupees.
