The Lucky Football Ponzi scheme has been exposed as a fraud. I’m aware of two domains used by Lucky Football: “lucky66.com” and “luckyfootball1.com.” On May 6th, 2022, “lucky66.com” was re-registered privately through a Singaporean registrar. On March 2nd, 2022, “luckyfootball1.com” was privately registered through the same registrar. An “ERR NAME NOT RESOLVED” DNS error is now returned when trying to access either website domain. Lucky Football was a Nigerian-targeted “click a button” app Ponzi scheme. Lucky Football invited investors to invest in Nigerian Naira (NGN) and tether, a cryptocurrency (USDT). Lucky football affiliates invested NGN or USDT in the hope of achieving the advertised rewards. I found Lucky Football to have the highest daily ROI of 4.01 percent. Affiliates were also compensated for personal recruitment by Lucky Football.
To receive 10,000 NGN, recruit a downline of five affiliates. Receive 35,000 NGN for recruiting a downline of 20 affiliates. Obtain 200,000 NGN by recruiting a downline of 50 affiliates. Receive 400,000 NGNA by recruiting a downline of 100 affiliates.
A “monthly salary” was also offered, which was linked to total downline recruitment: Build
You can earn 20,000 NGN every month if you have a downline of 30 affiliates. Earn 40,000 NGN each month by building a downline of 60 affiliates. Earn 170,000 NGN each month by building a downline of 240 affiliates. Obtain 400,000 NGN per month by building a downline of 500 affiliates. Earn 1,200,000 NGN each month by building a downline of 1,000 affiliates.
The first six levels of a Lucky Football affiliate’s unilevel club were counted as downline affiliates for the monthly salary: Referral commissions on invested funds were also paid using the aforementioned unilevel team structure, this time with six tiers of recruitment:
level one (personally recruited affiliates). – 10% level 2–6 percent level 3–4 percent level 4–3 percent level 5–2 percent level 6–1 percent.
The “click a button” Ponzi scheme used by Lucky Football involved betting on football games.
The only way to get a return was to make a fresh investment. In or around April 2022, Lucky Football was released. In May, new investment dried up, causing the Ponzi scheme to fail. Tron.BI is one of a slew of “click a button” apps that have shown up in recent months. We have so far documented:
COTP — a scheme in which affiliates pretended to press a button in order to induce trade activity that failed in May 2022.
EthTRX is a Ponzi based on an app, but without the daily task component.
Yu Klik—fake-clicking a button to induce trading activity with a specific aim in mind. KKBT—aimed at South Africa and India—lied about the revenue generated by pressing a button.
& fell apart in early June 2022.
EasyTask 888 targets people who believe that clicking a button is linked to social media manipulation (YouTube likes). Colombia
DF Finance failed after claiming that clicking a button generated “buy data” that was sold to ecommerce companies.
For example, on June 20, 2022,
Shared989, a website that purported that clicking a button was tied to social media manipulation (for example, YouTube likes), was shut down.
86FB-claimed to wager on football match results by pressing a button, then collapsed. After claiming that pressing a button was tied to betting on the outcome of a football match, he fell unconscious.
claimed to gamble on the outcome of a football match by clicking a button, and then collapsed.
365Ball-makes it appear as if pressing a button will result in a wager on the outcome of a football match (which has already collapsed multiple times).
YLCH Football gives the impression that pressing a button will result in a wager on the outcome of a football match.
Parkour makes it appear as if pressing a button is linked to social media manipulation (YouTube likes, etc.).
OTCAI went bankrupt after claiming that affiliates’ hitting a button produced trading activity. May 2022N9 Football-affiliates feigned to wager on football match outcomes by hitting a button (expired May 2022).
Tron.BI-makes affiliates believe that clicking a button is linked to TRX cloud mining.
EFG Football claimed affiliates were betting on football match results by clicking a button (defunct as of May 2022).
Assume that hitting a button was linked to betting on the outcome of a football match (expired May 2022).
There are a lot more of these scams out there that I haven’t covered yet. The same group of con artists appears to be behind all of the recent app-based task Ponzi schemes. Based on the use of simplified Chinese, I believe the group is based in China or Singapore.
