Traina Design operates new scam websites - traina-dk.com and traina-ek.com. These scam websites claim they are offering remote work optimizing product listings for merchants.

No goods or services are rendered to the remote workers.

The scam starts with a Talent Agency employee text SMS asking if you are interested in remote work. They move to WhatsApp for future communications.

Company uses WhatsApp and Telegram for communication and customer service along with the website.

Training is initiated to build trust as the website credits an account with USDT for use in the tasks, they claim the lucky bonus combo item pay a multiplier and is desired.

The misleading and ambiguous terms of service they claim allow them to put your account in a negative status. You are told you are lucky to get these bonus items.

The new worker is encouraged to add and withdraw crypto. Initially they credit the account to get a new user started.

They establish trust through successful deposits and withdrawals using USDT or Teather, a cryptocurrency.

After a day or two the user is lucky and gets a bonus item that puts the account balance in the negative. To remedy this the user must deposit personal funds. They start small but at some point the system goes into the negative by a few hundred, then a thousand, then thousands. Workers move through sets of tasks that must be completed to withdraw.

At the height of the scam they put the user ten thousand or more in debt.

Claims are made that you can withdraw after cleaning the negative balance, usually on the last product of the set. The sponsor tells the victim to get an extension and to get funds. They offer advice on purchasing crypto from exchanges. They act as a confidant and show proof of large withdrawals to build more false trust.

When paid, another larger debt is added effectively locking the users funds on the platform.

Then the user is out all funds as the account grew.

Customer service uses canned copy/paste responses and threatens that funds will be lost if extension
