It seems like the “Create an API” fraudulent strategy has become extremely popular lately. Such scam emails are sent out regularly by programs’ admins requesting to create API in order to resume instant payouts to LR. Many investors do not even realize what they are doing and send their money to fraudsters. Therefore we inform about such emails as often as possible so that more and more investors would understand that they should not follow any instructions in any emails. Our basic article on this topic can be read here and you will also find lots of news regarding “Create an API” issue if you look through our pages.
Another email of this kind came on behalf of StraitonTrade.com, a program from our HYIP-list: “Hello , sorry we have problem with instant withdraw on you Liberty Reserve wallet. Here is what you need to do in order to receive instant withdrawals from Straiton Trade” and then there are instructions which you should follow. This email came from Glenn, the admin of the program and from the email address email@example.com. The thing is that you can see two contact email addresses on the website: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and Technical information: email@example.com. However, there is a third one, from which Glenn has contacted us before and it is actually firstname.lastname@example.org.
This might mean that the email was really sent out by StraitonTrade and that this program can not be trusted anymore or that their email has been hacked. In any case, do not follow the instructions and we’ll wait and see whether they will keep paying or not.
