Believed Mirror Trading International (MTI) investors have been directed to ignore unsolicited offers from individuals claiming they have the ability to track and recover their missing bitcoins. This warning from the court-appointed liquidators came after reports emerged that several MTI investors had received such bogus offers from people claiming to be agents for cryptocurrency organizations.
According to a report, these so-called agents have asked MTI investors who might be interested in their services to pay them in bitcoins. In his warning to investors, however, MTI co-liquidator Adriaan van Rooyen rejects the agents’ claims. He said:
We have information that MTI members are being contacted by people posing as agents with access to the MTI database. These agents falsely claim that they can get back bitcoins deposited by MTI members. This is clearly another attempt to defraud members of the MTI. Only the temporary liquidators have access to the MTI database, and only the temporary liquidators can withdraw recovered bitcoins to members.

Rather than responding to the false claims, van Rooyen reminded MTI investors who want their missing bitcoins back that they would have a better chance if they cooperated with the court-appointed liquidators. According to the MTI liquidators, investors can initiate this cooperation by registering and submitting their claims online.
On the website specially set up for this registration process, the liquidators explain how MTI investors should submit their claims. However, the liquidators warn that every single claim will be reviewed and investors filing more than one claim will see those claims rejected.
