The restart of Trust Miner Ponzi’s website address has been taken away.
The reason that management has come up with doesn’t make sense, of course.
The Trust Miner website has been down for the past 24 hours. The domain “trustminer.app” was used to host the site.
Most exit scams involve Ponzi sites going offline, but Trust Miner admin Corey Deez says that’s not the case here.
In a “site announcement,” Deez talked about the downtime;
In the last few days, there have been several attacks on BSC projects that are already in place.
Someone with bad intentions told our domain provider that we were breaking their Terms of Service.
This isn’t true, but the domain provider took down our website anyway.
That makes no sense.
First of all, someone “attacking BSC projects” doesn’t gain anything by getting a website domain shut down.
Second, domain registrars might do something when they get a complaint about a TOS violation, but they usually don’t do anything without first talking to the domain owner. From there, each domain provider has a set process.
Running Ponzi schemes like Trust Miner is against the law, but registrars usually don’t do anything unless law enforcement contacts them. This has to do with the registrar’s liability, which I won’t get into here.
In any case, WHOIS records show what a registrar does when they do something. The domain record for Trust Miner’s website shows that nothing has changed since it was registered on June 15.
Deez says that he has put the old Trust Miner website on a new domain called “trustminer.finance.”
This makes Deez’s original claim even weaker, since the.finance domain was also registered on June 15 (within 30 minutes of the.app domain) through the same registrar.
If what Deez said was true, the same registrar wouldn’t let him use a backup domain to host the same content. To shut down the new domain, all you’d have to do is report it.
But it’s pretty clear that’s not what happened here.
MLM Ponzi schemes are hard to figure out even when things are going well. Even less is known about MLM crypto Ponzi schemes that are run through sketchy Telegram groups.
What SimilarWeb says In June, only about 11,000 people went to Trust Miner’s.app domain. That’s not even close to enough to keep an MLM Ponzi going.
I think that Trust Miner’s first launch has been forgotten, and that’s why the domain is being relaunched.
If recruitment doesn’t get better, an exit scam will be pulled in the next few months, which will lead to more “attacks.”
Trust Miner is a new start for the COTP Ponzi scheme, which failed. Trust Miner, on the other hand, is not linked to COTP management. Instead, it is thought to be run by former investors.
Since the goal of ripping off COTP investors twice has been reached, there isn’t much reason to keep the reboot Ponzi going unless new people are found to scam.
