NikeGold Trading Bot Review: Telegram Ponzi bots are back…
NikeGold Trading Bot is an MLM investment opportunity.
NikeGold Trading Bot is run through a Telegram bot, owned and operated by persons unknown.
Promotion of NikeGold Trading Bot in the US is being spearheaded by Sean Tillery.
BehindMLM first came across Tillery back in 2015, as “Sean Tillery Legaux”. At the time Tillery was promoting his FuelCoin pyramid scheme.
Tillery runs and promotes scams through Wealth Builders Network Educational Services, commonly abbreviated as WBNES.
Whether Tillery is behind NikeGold Trading Bot is unclear. He seems to be the only person with access to the admins running the scheme on Telegram.
Tillery is believed to be based out of California in the US.
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.

NikeGold Trading Bot Conclusion
Telegram Ponzi bots were a thing a few years ago. Here’s a list of the ones we’ve covered on BehindMLM:
- Lara With Me (2016, shut down by Telegram within a few months)
- Business Bot Incubator (2016)
- Robinhood Global (2017)
- V-Tec (2017)
- Alpha Cash (2017)
- iCenter (2018, collapsed in a few months)
- The Berlin Group (2018, collapsed in a few months and was rebooted over and over again)
- Minerva Trading Bot (2019)
- Cryptify Trading (2020)
- Phenomenal Club (2021)
The last Telegram Ponzi bot we came across was Martingale Bot in July 2022.
Now Sean Tillery and friends appear to be trying to resurrect the niche.
NikeGold Trading Bot’s passive investment opportunity is clearly a securities offering.
A search of the SEC’s Edgar database reveals neither NikeGold Trading Bot or Sean Tillery are registered with the SEC.
Even if he’s not running NikeGold Trading Bot, Tillery is promoting it. Promotion of unregistered securities is illegal as per the Securities and Exchange Act.
In what appears to be an attempt to address securities fraud, Tillery represents NikeGold Trading Bot is “registered with the SEC in the United Kingdom and the United States”.
First off there is no SEC in the United Kingdom. Securities in the UK are regulated by the FCA.
Secondly neither NikeGold Trading Bot or Sean Tillery are registered with the SEC or FCA.
If that lie wasn’t stupid enough, Tillery goes on provide a certificate he claims equates to SEC approval:
If you look closely at the certificate, you’ll note it’s issued by “Presidential Communications Operations Ofice” [sic]. The recipient is the “Securities and Exchange Commissions (SEC)”.
Sean Tillery would have you believe some Presidential entity has awarded the US SEC with a “certificate of compliance”. This is easily the most bombastically asinine thing I’ve seen from MLM Ponzi scammers in a while.
Even if Tillery’s bogus certificate is taken at face value, what it has to do with NikeGold Trading Bot is unclear.
The certificate Tillery presents is a (probably modified) transparency seal, awarded to the Philippine SEC in 2015.
The other claim to note in Tillery’s promotional efforts, is the claim NikeGold Trading Bot has been “trading for 5 years”.
2.4% a day for five years? And the end result is bogus SEC certificates and giving away the golden goose for free on Telegram?
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve NikeGold Trading Bot of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
