Hopefully this is enough proof to not be another edge case, but I did some work for a brew pub I visited, converting their beer menu over from Google Sheets + Chromecast (which was constantly down and causing issues for them) to a Raspberry Pi-based setup. They bought the Pi and I mailed them a microSD card with a basic Linux installation that had reverse routed SSH access for me to use, and once they plugged it in I set up the display software and everything else for them remotely.

Funnily enough, although this work was done over the internet, my payment was mailed as a check. I still have it around if a picture of it is needed for further proof, but I elected to use the pay stub from below the check instead, since there would be more to redact on the check (routing numbers and such).

I complete surveys online for a few companies, the best paid being Populus. Each point I earn is worth £1 (around $1.35 at the moment) and at 50 points you can withdraw your earnings. I have attached a screenshot of my earning record on their website and of the payment coming into my bank account about a week later.

I realise neither of these shows my name so I have also attached an image of the email notification of payment where you can see my name in the top right for my gmail account and the dates match up with the other images.

I work for Paul as a Virtual Assistant: helping coordinate summer events, kickstarters, selling items on the digital market, rentals, and much much much.

I helped with the design and drew up the as built plans for the first WOFATI Greenhouse.  You can buy the plans on the Permies Digital Marketplace!  I did the design work from my home in Seattle and was sent as built dimensions as they built it.  Some guy named Paul paid me big bucks to do it.

Hello!

I am a Pro Forecaster for INFER (formerly CSET Foretell). For a minimum 10 hours, I am paid $200 monthly.

Info on the program: https://www.infer-pub.com/pro-forecaster-description

In the attached screenshot, it shows Foretell in the memo line on the October and November payments (life got busy, and I didn't spend enough time on platform for the December payment).

For my first ever submission on the quest towards PEP godhood, I submit photo evidence of the following:

I recorded voice samples through my phone, helping our future AI overlord understand Norwegian. It might be scammy, but at least they paid me :D
Attached is an official, slighty redacted, statement from Upwork documenting I made several dollars.
