86FB “click a button” app Ponzi collapses, websites gone
The 86BF “click a button” app Ponzi scheme has collapsed.
86FB, also known as 86 Football, operated from three websites domains “86fb.com”, 86w.com and 86z.com.
All domains appear to have gone offline in late April.
86FB was another “click a button” app Ponzi. BehindMLM hadn’t got around to reviewing it prior to its collapse.
As I understand it 86FB had implemented withdrawal restrictions prior to exit-scam collapsing.
86FB affiliates invested ₦3500 or more on the promise of a 3% daily ROI.
To qualify for commissions, 86FB affiliates had to click a button three times a day.
86FB’s “click a button” Ponzi ruse was pretending the clicks predicted football game outcomes.
The MLM side of 86FB rewarded affiliates for recruiting new investors.
- recruit five affiliates and receive ₦7000
- recruit twenty affiliates and receive ₦33,000
- recruit fifty affiliates and receive ₦80,000
- recruit two hundred affiliates and receive ₦200,000
- generate a downline of fifty active investors and receive ₦20,000 a month
- generate a downline of two hundred active investors and receive ₦150,000 a month
- generate a downline of five hundred active investors and receive ₦350,000 a month
- generate a downline of one thousands active investors and receive ₦1,000,000 a month
For the first downline tier (50 active investors), affiliates were only counted from the first three unilevel team levels. I don’t believe there were any restrictions on the other downline tiers (200 to 1000).
86FB told affiliates there was “no risk and no losses”, and that invested funds were “100% secured”.
86FB primarily targeted investors in Nigeria.
86FB was part of a group of “click a button” app Ponzis launched over the past few months.
Thus far BehindMLM has documented:
- COTP – pretended affiliates clicking a button generated trading activity, collapsed May 2022
- EthTRX is a similar app-based Ponzi, with the daily task component disabled
- Yu Klik – pretends clicking a button generates trading activity, targeting Indonesia
- KKBT – pretended clicking a button generates crypto mining revenue, targeted South Africa and India & collapsed early June 2022
- EasyTask 888 – pretends clicking a button was tied to social media manipulation (YouTube likes), targets Colombia
- DF Finance – pretended clicking a button generated “purchase data” which was sold to ecommerce platforms, collapsed June 2022
- Shared989 – pretended clicking a button was tied to social media manipulation (YouTube likes), collapsed June 2022
There are more of these scams around that I haven’t got to yet.
All the recent app-based task Ponzis appear to be launched by the same group of scammers.
Based on the use of simplified Chinese, I suspect the group are operating out of China or Singapore.
