The public notice dated 11th October 2022 stated that BLQ FOOTBALL Uganda is not licenced to operate in Uganda its therefore operating illegally.

According to information extracted from the BLQ KIPAJE – Team Groups, a Telegram group with over 6,000 members, the admin claimed that BLQ’s anniversary event was well rewarded.

The admin however said that during the event, many of their staff were also out doing charity work.

However, during this event, they discovered a serious loophole that was exploited and forwarded by unscrupulous individuals, resulting in the theft of nearly 60 billion shillings.

According to the Admin, BLQ HQ, has now decided to reject all previous withdrawals! A full audit check will be carried out! Once the audit is approved, members can withdraw their funds at any time.

”Our current withdrawals will be automatically credited to your account within 24-48 hours, sorry for any inconvenience caused!,” the admin told members.

In the public notice released by the Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board (LGRB) Uganda stated that BLQ is using the gaming industry as a strategy to market its membership.

”It claims to be an investment company where members make money by recruiting people to join the BLQ Football Club platform,” the notice stated.

The Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board also confirmed that the allegation is true because of the testimonials and complaints coming from different social media platforms such as BLQ WhatsApp group, Twitter, Telegram, among others.

They advised the public to refrain from dealing with unlicensed or illegal gaming operators who lure and defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

They also advised the public to always verify the registration and licensee status of such companies and schemes before engaging with them.
