Welcome to our BTCz Review in which we investigate the website currently found at 722l.com.
A few days ago, on January 28, 2023, the following complaint was posted on the BBB (Better Business Bureau) by an Arizona, USA person who claims being scammed for $16,912 by a cryptocurrency investment scam:
The scammer contacted me through a Telegram chat, offering to invest in cryptocurrency and promising to guide me through every step. However, when I tried to withdraw my investment from the website, customer service informed me that I owed 33,000 dollars in taxes and I had to pay them in a short period of time.
So far, I have lost 16,912 USD but I am concerned about identity theft, as the scammer has access to my personal information.
Reported Scammer Information includes:
- Location – New York, NY
- Telephone – (727) 238-7295 (area code 727 covers Pinellas County, Florida)
- Website – m.722l.com/home
So is BTCz legit or is it a SCAM?

Even though the domain was registered more than 4 years ago, their Semrush Authority Score is 0% with only 5 backlinks, none of which are from any legitimate websites.
There is one website which used to redirect to 722l.com – hubc.org – but it is currently offline.
Is 722l Legit?
We open the website, but quickly discover that on desktop, the website is not viewable unless you’re signed up; it automatically redirects to a sign up page.
While the logo reads “BTCz,” the title of the homepage is “Welcome to BTCEXO, the world’s leading contract trading platform. 100% of the handling fee is refunded in real time. Register & open a position in just 10 seconds.”
Menu items include Market, Exchange, Contract, Period CFD, and Investment.
They provide links to “quickly buy coins” with cash.app, Coinbase, and Crypto.com.
They claim to provide “24 hours professional customer service.”
They also claim to have a mobile app.
Other information they provide include:
- “Global project expansion and operation management system, with local service trading centers in many countries”
- “Bank-level wallet system, live financial risk control, multi-dimensional verify, 10year financial security team, multiple guarantees of fund security”
- “Attentively sanding details, make the UI and interaction level by level more comfortable, and then the transaction can become a visual enjotment” [sic]
- “Support Android, IOS and Pc website 3 device operation to control market information in live time, global market and transaction anytime and anywhere”
We were able to find the first point on another website, which looks like a 722l.com clone – bitfirer.com.
On mobile, on the other hand, the BTCz website is viewable. There is no contact information, besides a contact form.
There is also a Help Center, which for example contains a page that says:
Due to the maintenance and upgrade of the platform, the latest domain name has been replaced
The old domain name will be replaced and changed to:
New Domain 1: www.youdivi.com
New Domain 2： www.722l.com
New Domain 3：www.Hubc.org
All the staff of BTCexo wish you a happy life
Strangely, they refer to themselves as BTCexo here rather than as BTCz.
Also, they mention that domain – Hubc.org – we saw earlier which used to redirect to 722l.com.
According to another article, BTCz has also launched a cloud mining machine called “Lock-up Mining”. The subscription price is between 5,000 to 500,000 USDT and the mining duration is 30 days. The cloud mining machine allegedly generates USDT daily, which is issued to the account daily.
The cloud mining machine has 6 categories, including lock-up mining (1A), lock-up mining (2A), lock-up mining (3A), lock-up mining (4A), lock-up mining (top-level), and lock-up mining (luxury). After subscribing, the platform deducts the corresponding amount of USDT from the user’s account and deploys the machine, with revenue generated starting on the third day.
On their Legal Statement document, they write “The purpose of this website is to provide professional international trading platform and financial products for the global digital asset enthusiasts and investors as far as possible without violating the relevant laws and regulations of Singapore.”
Could they be located in Singapore?
Overall, this brief 722l scam review suggests that even if they are not a full fledged scam, they should probably not be trusted since they do not disclose any information about the company or the people behind it and the website contains many errors and problems that you would not expect to see in a legitimate website.
We turn now to BTCexo and try to look for BTCexo reviews or any information about it.
Is BTCexo legit?
A quick Google search reveals that btcexo.com is a website that is no longer online.
It was also registered through GoDaddy.
We found some BTCexo scam reviews, for example, on TrustPilot one person writes: “It’s a fraud and they steal crypto and don’t payout.”
During this BTCz review, we have discovered two active websites that we believe are scams:
We also found some websites that were probably scams, but are currently defunct.
Both 722l.com and bitfirer.com contain a host of red flags that unables us to put out trust in them. Bitfirer deserves a review of its own, but for now let us conlude by saying that Bitfirer and 722l are most likely SCAMS and should be avoided!
Do you have any information about 722l.com or bitfirer.com? Please leave a comment below!
