Cala AI Review: 30-day ROI tether app Ponzi
Cala AI provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.
Cala AI’s website domain (“bocalazer.com”), was first registered in 2006. The private registration was last updated on January 18th, 2022 – which I believe is when the current owner(s) took possession of it.
In an attempt to appear legitimate, Cala AI provides anti money laundering certificates for FinCEN (US) and SCUML (Nigeria). Basic incorporation certificates for the US (Colorado) and Nigeria are also provided.
Due to the ease with which scammers are able to incorporate shell companies with bogus details, for the purpose of MLM due-diligence these certificates are meaningless.
There is no regulatory verification or oversight when registering a company with FinCEN or SCUML.
Attempting to participate in Cala AI’s MLM opportunity punts visitors over to a subdomain hosted on a different domain; “web.sabrinascala.com”.
This domain, privately registered on June 27th, 2022, is a gateway to Cala AI’s app. It is through this app that Cala AI’s MLM opportunity is operated.
SimilarWeb currently tracks top sources of traffic to Cala AI’s “bocalazer.com” website as Taiwan (100%).
This is an odd traffic profile, strongly suggesting whoever is behind Cala AI has ties to Taiwan.
Top sources of traffic to the “sarbinascala.com” website are Nigeria (60%), Spain (21%) and India (19%).
Of note is Cala AI’s original (and still linked) YouTube channel was
terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.
A second Cala AI channel was hastily set up on August 16th. It should be further noted that ban evasion is a violation of YouTube’s TOS.
Cala AI’s marketing videos are a combination of stock footage with a robo voiceover. This is typical of scammers from non-English speaking countries.
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.

Cala AI Conclusion
Cala AI represents it generates external revenue via an “automatic exchange robot”. This is broken English for “arbitrage”.
“Trading bots” are the go-to Ponzi ruse for MLM crypto scams. To that end there is no evidence Cala AI has a bot, or that external revenue of any kind is being used to pay affiliate withdrawals.
Cala AI’s marketing videos market 882% annual ROI:
If that was the case whoever is behind Cala AI would just quietly run the trading bot themselves. They certainly wouldn’t be providing randoms over the internet access to it.
Seeing as Cala AI has provided meaningless money laundering and incorporation certificates on its website, I’ll point out that the only certificates that would matter are with financial regulators in Nigeria (Nigerian SEC), Spain (CNMV) and India (SEBI).
Cala AI fails to provide evidence it has registered with any of these regulators and filed legally required audited financial reports.
These filed audited reports are the only way for Cala AI to provide it is generating trading revenue, and using said revenue to pay withdrawals.
As it stands the only verifiable source of revenue entering Cala AI is new investment.
Using new investment to pay 30 days returns on invested tether makes Cala AI a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so to will new investment.
This will starve Cala AI of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
