Investors in troubled Mirror Trading International (MTI) were told to ignore offers from individuals who claimed to have the ability to track and retrieve lost bitcoins. The court-appointed liquidator issued this warning after reports that some MTI investors received such false offers from individuals claiming to be agents of cryptocurrency organizations.
According to a report, these so-called agents have been asking MTI investors who may be interested in their services to pay in Bitcoin. However, in issuing a warning to investors, Adriaan van Rooyen, MTI’s joint liquidator, dismissed the agent’s claim. He says:
We have information indicating that people who claim to be agents who can access the MTI database are contacting MTI members. These agents falsely claimed that they could withdraw the bitcoins deposited by members into MTI. This is obviously another attempt to deceive MTI members. Only provisional liquidators can access the MTI database, and only provisional liquidators can pay the recovered bitcoins to members.
Official claims channel
Van Rooyen did not respond to the false claim, but instead reminded MTI investors who wish to recover their lost bitcoins that if they cooperate with the liquidator appointed by the court, they will have a better chance. According to the MTI liquidator, investors can initiate such cooperation by registering online and submitting claims.
At the same time, on a webpage created specifically for the registration process, the liquidator explained how MTI investors should submit claims. However, the liquidator warned that every claim will be verified, and investors who submit more than one claim will see such claims rejected.
