I'm 15 years old (about to be 16 in a month) and I want to make money online as I don't have time for an actual job during the school year. The problem is websites always want workers at least 18 years old. Is it haram to fake my age to be able to work online? If I do fake my age will the money earned be halal?
The work I intend to do online is simply transcribing audio, adding captions to videos, taking part in surveys and simple freelance work.
Anyways thank you to anybody who replies.

It will be lying so it will be a sin and money won't be 100 percent halal.

I'll say, don't do it as lying opens up the gates to more lying and lying creates hypocrisy in the heart and in the long term this could effect your Iman drastically

It's better to be poor and have sound iman

That is probably for the best. Also keep in mind that getting a job with a fake age, might also get you in legal trouble where you live. Probably not for surveys and such. But for a real job like transcribing, it might. So taht would probably be another reason why you might want to stay away from such lies.

I completely forgot about the possibility of landing into legal trouble, so thanks for reminding of that.
