365Ball Review: Football themed “click a button” app Ponzi
365Ball’s website provides no information about who owns or runs the company.
365Ball’s website domain (“365ow.cc”), was first registered in April 2022. The private registration was last updated on May 27, with 365Ball launching back in April.
Through use of local currency and 365Ball It is primarily targeting the Philippines.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
365Ball has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market 365Ball affiliate membership itself.
365Ball’s Compensation Plan
365Ball affiliates invest Philippine pesos on the promise of a 1.38% daily ROI.
365Ball offers seven investment tiers:
- 300 PHP
- 1000 PHP
- 5000 PHP
- 10,000 PHP
- 50,000 PHP
- 100,000 PHP
- 100,001 PHP or more (all in)
In order to qualify for daily returns, 365Ball affiliates must sign into the app each day and click a button.
The more a 365Ball affiliate invests the more they have to click the button.
The MLM side of 365Ball pays on recruitment of affiliate investors. I believe the three-tier commission system is used but couldn’t find any specifics.

Full participation in the attached income opportunity requires a minimum 300 PHP investment.
While I’ve reviewed the current version of 365Ball here, the Ponzi scheme dates back to Q4 2021.
365Ball has used multiple domains…
…through which it has targeted various countries over the past few months.
At one point 365Ball even had its own Boris CEO:
When new investment slows down, 365Ball appears to just shut down its website and launch a new one on a different domain. Whether the app carries over is unclear.
The current iteration of 365Ball targets the Philippines. I’ve also seen promotion aimed at South America.
From what I can gather 365Ball scammers are coordinating their promotional efforts on Telegram.
Go up the chain high enough and you’ll probably run into the Chinese scammers behind the scheme.
365Ball is a simple Ponzi scheme that sees affiliates invest on the premise “clicking a button” generates external revenue.
365Ball’s particular “click a button” Ponzi ruse is betting on the outcome of football matches.
365Ball is 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
- 86FB – pretended clicking a button was tied to gambling on football match outcomes, collapsed April 2022
- 0W886 – pretended clicking a button was tied to gambling on football match outcomes, collapsed May 2022
- U91 – pretended clicking a button was tied to gambling on football match outcomes, collapsed May 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.
Update 18th August 2022 – 365Ball’s official YouTube channel has been terminated.
I had linked to a Boris CEO video featuring “Dennis Coates”. Seeing as 365Ball’s channel has been terminated though, the video is no longer available.
