“Ranch” click a button Ponzi apps targeting India
Coming off the collapse of Peace Ranch, a “click a button” Ponzi app that targeted South Africa, two similar ranch themed Ponzis target Indians.
Nestle Ranch launched on or around May 2022. Despite the name, Nestle ranch has nothing to do with the well known brand.
Slightly differing from Peace Ranch and The Ranch, Nestle Ranch saw affiliates invest in various farm themed tiers on the promise of a daily ROI.
Nestle Ranch solicited investment in tether (USDT) and the Indian rupee.
Nestle Ranch also offered referral commissions down two levels of recruitment:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 6%
- level 2 – 3%
Nestle Ranch was supposed to pay returns for 365 days but collapsed on or around August 2022. Total victim numbers and how much they lost remains unknown.
The Ranch launched on or around April 2022 and also targets India.
The Ranch more closely resembles Peach Ranch. Affiliates invest in make believe “Swedish cows”.
Daily Returns are tied to “milking” the cow (this is where you click a button).
Again you’ve got USDT and the Indian rupee. The Ranch also pays referral commissions but specifics aren’t disclosed.
The Ranch’s website is still up at “theranch.vip”, but SimilarWeb is tracking negligible traffic to the domain. Whether this means The Ranch has collapsed or not is unclear.
“Click a button” app Ponzi schemes emerged in late 2021. They are the work of Chinese scammers and tend to target specific countries with each launch.
To date BehindMLM has tracked over 40 “click a button” app Ponzi clones.
Update 16th March 2023 – Whereas I wasn’t sure if The Ranch had collapsed at time of publication, “theranch.vip” has since gone offline.
You have to be incredibly stupid to think someone requires you clicking a button from your computer to milk their cow and that they’re going to pay 100%+ returns for you to do it versus taking 10 seconds to create a simple script to do the clicking.
They say the email scams intentionally target stupid people. I guess these scams assume stupid people must know other stupid people.
I not happy about peace reanch.
Seeing as the majority inevitably lost money in Peace Ranch, I am not surprised.
Article updated to confirm The Ranch has collapsed.
