If you have invested with mtps.expert, and now that the website is down, you’re wondering what you should do, this article is for you! Please read on!
Recently, on January 26, we received the following report from a visitor who claims being scammed out of 19,000 EU, regarding a website which was hosted at mtps.expert, a URL which is currently defunct:
Hello, after listening to a woman named Chanel for a year (2021) about an opportunity to work with a broker who only charges 10% of the profits generated from my capital, she introduced me to Denis Bloom. With this guy, after making a small deposit of 1,000 euros, I decided to increase my capital in June 2021 to 8600 euros.
The platform (mtps.expert) was showing a steady increase in my capital, not huge but better than the normal market. Denis was always very friendly, so at the end of November, he withdrew 1500 euros for me and deposited it in my bank account.
At that point, he presented me with an opportunity for a short-term investment that could yield 6-7% in 20 days for new options from a new Indian bank. We agreed to talk again after the Christmas holidays. In January, I tried to contact him but there was no response by phone or email, even after contacting Chanel.
After some research, I discovered that the mtps.expert platform is unregulated and when I requested to withdraw my money, they just kept me waiting for authorization that never came.
My money is still on the page but as I found written in scam alerts, it will never return home. Two days ago the page resulted in a 404 error. I have written to mtps.expert demanding the return of my capital and have informed them of my contact with Europol.
The domain mtps.expert was registered with Tucows Domains Inc. on March 17, 2022 for one year. The registrant contact according to the Whois records is based in Ontario, Canada. The website was hosted by Microsoft Corporation, but again, it is currently offline.
A message appears saying “Sorry! If you are the owner of this website, please contact your hosting provider: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Before it went down, it seems to have enjoyed slight popularity (with a global rank of 12,617,734), especially in Italy, where it was ranked 600,409. However, it received less than 5,000 visits during December 2022, according to SimilarWeb.

We also find indexed in Google a my.miller.capital subdomain, which has German text, strengthening our suspicion that both sites were created by the same scammer or group of fraudsters.
Fortunately, additional URLs are still indexed, offering us a view of what this website was all about before it was closed down.
We discover that the website title was Miller Capital. According to the meta descriptions, Miller Capital claimed to be a company that allows customers to trade Contracts for Differences (CFDs) on commodities in world markets. They also claimed that customers can profit on any price changes and can accumulate wealth without active involvement.
They also mentioned that the stock market is an investment market designed for wealth accumulation and that with CFDs, customers can collect their part without the need to actively involve.
We were able to access my.miller.capital, where we see a login page (as well as a registration page). We also find a logo which says “Stanley VC.”
Having changed the language in my.miller.capital to English, when we tried searching again for websites indexed under mtps.expert, we found the meta description “An accessible and intuitive way for traders of all levels to invest.”
Searching Google for that text, we find additional suspicious website which include it, such as:
- qmmarket.net (and the subdomain my.qmmarket.net)
- solidcapital.net (and the subdomain my.solidcapital.net)
- cowtradingvip.com (and the subdomain wt.cowtradingvip.com)
When we search for “mtps expert” on Google, we discover additional related sites, including mtp.zone.
A Huge Network of Scams!
In a Russian blog article about Solid Capital, we learn an alarming truth.
No less than 53 scam websites share the same IP along with mtps.expert:
- mtp.expert (the Italian Consob warns against this website)
Of these, 9 are currently in operation:
(SCAM ALERT! Do NOT invest with the websites listed in this article.)
The article discusses a scam broker named Solid Capital (solidcapital.net) and claims that it is a fraudulent service. They claim to be registered in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, but the official registry there does not have any record of the company or its legal entity, Nexus LLC.
The Bank of Russia has also linked the legal entity Nexus LLC to several other scam projects.
Furthermore, the registered address of Solid Capital is a virtual office location that has been used by at least 35 fraudulent projects in the past.
They also describe a scam involving 115 IP locations associated with Amazon.com Inc. and 400 technical sites, including subdomains my.solidcapital.net and wt.solidcapital.net, that were found to be hosting mirrors of three scam projects named Kriptorex, OLIVE MARKETS and ZES FOREX under the name Solid Capital.
Additionally, more than 100 individual scam projects were found on the same IP addresses, along with 125 separate pseudo-broker platforms.
Next, they describe a scam platform called Solid Capital that uses leverate.com subdomains. It is alleged that the platform uses the services of Leverate Financial Services Ltd, which has been reported to have connections to fraudulent projects.
In conclusion, looking at mtps.expert, we went down a rabbit hole, leading us to the largest scam network we have ever encountered, which includes hundreds of websites on several IP addresses.
Mtps.expert, which is currently offline, was offering an opportunity to work with a broker who only charges 10% of the profits generated from a customer’s capital.
Do yourself a favor and stay far away from them.
One person reported being scammed out of 19,000 EU and mentions that the platform was unregulated and when they requested to withdraw their money, they were just kept waiting for authorization that never came.
We can only imagine the hundreds of thousands, and maybe millions, of dollars this network has stolen from victims around the world.
