The U91“click a button” app Ponzi scheme has collapsed.
Despite only launching a short time ago, U91’s website is already offline.
At time of publication attempts to access U91’s website return a “522” server connection error.
U91 was launched shortly after 86FB collapsed. Whereas 86FB and its 0W886 reboot were aimed at Nigerians however, U91 was primarily directed at South America.
SimilarWeb peg top sources of traffic to U91’s defunct domain as Venezuela (61%), Turkey (15%), Colombia (9%) and Argentina (7%).
U91 operated from the domain “u91.com”, privately re-registered on February 26th, 2022.
U91 affiliates invested tether on the promise of a 6% to 8% daily ROI.
The MLM side of U91 paid on affiliate recruitment:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 10%
- level 2 – 5%
- level 3 – 3%
As with 86FB and 0W886, U91’s “click a button” Ponzi ruse was pretending clicking buttons was betting on the outcome of football matches.
In reality all U91 was doing was recycling newly invested funds to pay withdrawals.
U91 was 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
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.
