BLQ Football collapses, withdrawals disabled & fake SEC letter
BLQ Football has collapsed, and most investors don’t even know it yet.
BehindMLM started receiving reports of disabled withdrawals in late September.
Over the past few weeks reports of disabled withdrawals and BLQ Football accounts being locked has become widespread.
From October BLQ Football has been delaying the selective withdrawal requests it is letting through.
Investors who aren’t blocked are being shown the following warning when they put in a withdrawal request:
Due to the large number of customers making withdrawals each day, your withdrawal order will be completed within (1-72) hours to ensure that each payment reaches your account.
Scammers recruiting new victims into BLQ Football don’t seem to be having any withdrawal issues.
In what appears to be an attempt to stop investors from complaining and spreading awareness of withdrawal problems, a fake SEC signed legal letter began doing the rounds on October 1st (click to enlarge screenshot to the right):
The BLQ Group headquarters has sent a team of professional lawyers to Uganda to investigate and take legal action against people making unwanted defamatory attacks against the company.
Recently, there are unknown people in major platforms and media making a lot of noise about the imminent closure of BLQ, and articles containing false information.
The above-mentioned content has been continuously forwarded and disseminated, which has caused bad influence on BLQ charity, and has caused great damage to its image of people-orientated and charitable purposes accumulated over the years, which has seriously constituted the crime of malicious defamation.
In view of the foregoing, we hereby formally declare on behalf our principal as follows:
- we request all platforms, media, and individuals to immediately remove all false statements and articles containing distorted facts and slanderous denigration of BLQ charities published or reprinted in response to this matter, so as to remove the negative impact.
- The public is requested not to comment on, reproduce, disseminate or spread the above and similar undesirable contents by any means or methods.
Putting aside BLQ Football has only been around a few months and has nothing to do with charity, the letter is quite comical.
At the top we have the header for Caesars Entertainment, a US hotel and entertainment company. The letter is signed by Verity Young, with an employment position copied from LinkedIn.
Young is a lawyer in the UK, she has nothing to do with BLQ Football or Ceasars Group.
The icing on the cake is the superimposed US Securities and Exchange Commission stamp over Young’s signature.
Like Young, Ceasars Group and the SEC having nothing to do with BLQ Football. The contents of BLQ Footballs letter is 100% bullshit.
If you’re wondering why they’d even bother putting something like this out and who on Earth would fall for it, here’s your average BLQ Football investor:
BLQ Football is a “click a button” Ponzi run by Chinese scammers.
Interestingly enough, while China was the top source of traffic to BLQ Football’s websites for July and August, traffic from China was blocked sometime in September.
We suspect this is an attempt to dodge the attention of Chinese authorities. As of September 2022, 100% of BLQ Football’s website traffic originates out of Uganda.
Legal threats are becoming common as a “click a button” Ponzi exit-scam predictor.
Last month just before the SunSolar “click a button” Ponzi collapsed, investors in Ghana were told they’d be “sue(d) you to the police station for arrest!” if they didn’t hand over more money.
Like every other “click a button” Ponzis that has collapsed before it, BLQ Football has been running deposit bonuses before the final rug pull:
It’s only a matter of time before word of disabled spreads far enough throughout investors such that recruitment dries up.
When whatever internal threshold is being monitored is met, expect BLQ Football’s websites to disappear without warning.
BLQ Football is known to operate from “blq66.com”, “blq66.cc”, “blq99.com” and “blq2.com”.
Update 13th October 2022 – BLQ Football has pulled its websites offline.
Hello we have ug football here in uganda but it has been here since 2014. please help me and review it for me.
BLQ Football launched a few months ago. It is all the same Ponzi.
There is no BLQ Football in Uganda “since 2014”.
BLQ bought a shell company that was related to weight loss June 2022,they didn’t exist before that in any significant capacity.
The closest similar soccer-scam in Africa was called NGFifa and that was around January.
What if blq football works again in some days to come..
The good thing i withdrew all my money and i received it before October 3rd , sorry my dearly investors who we’re still having there money on BLQ account
This is exactly what I knew about them!
I have a pending withdrawal for almost a week.
I invisted in BLQ football and now 25million can I be helped to withdraw my money.
No you can’t be helped. The 25 million you think you have to withdraw doesn’t exist.
Sorry for your loss.
for me I used to tell my fellows that those guys are scammers n they couldn’t listen.
Whether they are scammers or not, the Ugandan authorities and telcomes have the blame to take up.
its so alarming that people are loosing moneys in the pretense of raising the income for other businesses.
am one of those unlucky one.
Me I don’t worry about this, those who went on investing too much, it’s u pon you but me I just made money out of it with my 10k from ivites.
What comes around goes around.
We just pray BLQ brings back people’s money.
You realize any money you “made” is stolen from others here right? Your family would be proud.
You’ll have better luck not joining future “investments” than trying to get your money back from this or any other scam run by anonymous chinese scammers.
Here we go: people were warned by this very platform.
I can’t waste my time n money on such platform.
Am among those who failed to get their money,I invited sofar like 9people of which also got more friends to join at the end we’ve lost all of our money!!
I think we can be helped by the government if possible to get back our funds.
Me too have been scammed after being invited to join BLQ. I can’t make any withdraw as per now and the last time I tried, it bounced back.
These people should be hunted and money put back into our accounts.
My dear Brothers it’s very unfortunate we have been enjoying the blq without knowing what those people are planning to do.
so let’s pray that they better have to return everyone’s money back plus even addon’s coz we’ve been playing and buying Data using our own money thanks.
What the hell is going on …
Please give money back to people, if UCC has interfered in this issue and Uganda rotary to ban blq they would given chance and alert this gaming board to allow people to withdraw their money.
now let us ask who responsible to take people’s money but Uganda God forbid, I blame government.
I promised to pay back the loan now they’re on my neck!
I don’t know if tomorrow am going to be arrested.
#BLQ came with too much sweet promises the gouvernement should work on them and at least we get our refund.
Hahaaaa. This people are stressed up.
People want quick money my brother and sister work hard.
Wow let us cry because we want things for free.
Blq has landed most of us in trouble because poeple we invited are now on our neck.
Even noq can’t access my account.
Even now can’t access my account when logging in???
My money that is what i knew about this fucking blq a guys did we lose our money like that.
We thought the license was real people had invited alot of friends and now we’re to to diposit 25% of our money so that we can access the wisdrow.
they think we’re fulls why don’t they diduct 25% on our savings and we make our wisdrow.
You people thank you for scaming my money.
Alright I’m getting started for the day. But I want to get this out first:
-The Ugandan government didn’ steal your money. Rando Chinese scammers did.
-The Ugandan government can’t get your money back. The best they can do is round up local promoters and arrest them. Realistically that’s not going o happen unless enough of you file complaints with police.
–Do not give the BLQ Football scammers any more money. This is an exit-scam. They ask for more money then disappear.
-In case some of you still don’t get it. You can’t withdraw your money from BLQ Football because the money doesn’t exist.
-Nobody can help you get your money back. Anyone claiming to be able to is lying and will ask you for money at some point.
This kind of investment has a lot of risk highly but some one should help to follow up : this people they’re many the like of development channel, Stolen big money from Ugandan and disappear UCC take notes.
The best person who can help you is you – by not investing in obvious Ponzi schemes.
Please do some research on Ug football platform because I had invested in it and we’re all in much fear. Is it a scam too.
UG Football is another “click a button” Ponzi run by the same scammers.
I have news to get through but when that settles down I’ll get back to reviews.
All of those platforms are scams. Stop joining them.
Hmmmm it’s our MTN and AIRTEL to be lamed much because how do you connect with scammer of china just to take our money.
God gives and Takes we Uganda’s are not happy for you.
These are cell carriers. Blaming them for Ugandans investing in Ponzi schemes is akin to blaming oxygen for keeping morons alive.
Regulation is reactionary. Unfortunately regulation of MLM related securities fraud in Uganda is non-existent.
That said, it’s important to remember BLQ Football withdrawals were disabled long before the warning came out.
BLQ Football as a Ponzi scheme started collapsing weeks ago. This is just the end of the scam.
We pray ug don’t do the same, bt we should be carefull.
It’s literally the same scam. Stop being stupid.
Ahaa! We were fooled since we want quick money guys less leave this and go back to our Normal days we used to be.
Am also a victim of Blq they have stolen my money yet I used my land to borrow money which I deposited.
am just requesting them to return my money all my number is (removed).
Its God who helped me to gather that money so if its gone then he has taken it back. See you my money.
Chinese “click a button” Ponzi scammers took your money. God has nothing to do with it.
Gonna be a long few days spambinning
I came late for this investment, but I was still scammed 300000.UGX, I have just deposited on Monday to today I rose up for this sad news.
It was my mistake and the person who invited me. I blames myself for being too stupid to invest into this Black business.
For sure we are scammed by blq platform all certificates were fake I lost 46 million yet I invest 5millin.
Let people cry silently. I understand at the 11th hour, a lady borrowed 100m and invested it. Just imagine her condition right now.
I didn’t believe in this thing but greed made me to. I even wondered that it’s a charity to Africans yet they were using us the poor to to give out the little we have so as to not develop in real life.
eh just imagine this broad daylight robbing hmm.
To my fellow Uganda please never believe in short cuts coz it will also turn to be the longest, thanks.
As we are told the the lottery frozed the blq’s accounts that means it contains people’s money let it be given back to them following what everyone invested in.
Even my neighbor sold 5 cows and deposited the money on BLQ.
Imagine that BIG LOSE.
This never happened. You are being lied to.
What was invested into BLQ Football that wasn’t stolen by fellow Ugandans, will have been siphoned off to cryptocurrency wallets that, let’s be realistic, Ugandan authorities aren’t going to investigate.
You were told lies, stop joining these platforms.
As for me I also lost 25000 pending on withdraw.
tell today I wanted to check my account balance what it shows on my screen is system maintenance.
Even I had two accounts one for me and another one for my wife plus two invites we lost alot of money.
You people we should stop being greed we should always make our own money but not waiting to get free money because cheap things are always expensive.
So sorry I lose more than I expect.
Even though they have taken peoples money. let them know this there is judgement day. we are crying but only God knows.
It’s really painful seeing our fellow Ugandans selling their land, using there school fee to invest but all in veins.
but those who promised the returns of our where they we call upon them to return our and they take their 20%.
If only I knew what would happen before I invest in to blq football.
Math is math. You knew what would happen but invested anyway.
Before you were good but now what is happening.
Nothing is happening. You invested in a Ponzi scheme and your money is gone.
Sorry for your loss.
