Informants don't necessarily need qualifications but you can make money from it as a gossiper or gist lover. You can begin by simply contacting a local police or federal security agency and making known your willingness to offer secret criminal reports and helping them in investigations. As someone who likes talking and gossip, you can have helpful information from the community to give the police whenever there is a crime. In most cases, working hand-in-hand with the police for a while makes you a confidant and you can begin receiving stipend for your secret job. Besides, most criminal offences come with financial offers for anyone who offer viable information for the arrest.

Although you can make money from this, the downside of this job is that a police informant is treated as a probable criminal whenever there is a crime report. This is because, there is a high chance for informants to commit crimes and pin it on others. The job can also be risky because once criminals discover that you are an eye to the security operatives, they might come after you. Therefore, while going toward this path, think twice before your love for gossip consumes you.

How to be safe as an informant is to make your relationship with the security agencies very secret, and your information to them have to be highly confidential. In addition, have a ready legal team in case of any legal threat.


Talking fast and having passion to talk all the time is a great communication skill. However, engaging in gossip is risky because in can lead you into serious trouble, especially legal ones. Therefore, if you can talk, it is best to use that skill positively to make money and earn a living from it.
