Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng


I have also received an email related to the MTI liquidation claims. 

Please advise me on what to do?

If I have to pay back the full withdrawn amount according to  today's worth, I would need to pay R27,480. At the time, before liquidation, I only received a profit of R1500. I deposited the rest myself. I do get that it would be right to pay them back what wasn't mine to start with, which is the profit, but not my initial amount. I don't have a high income. I don't even own any property or anything on my name. I Don't have that amount of money. 

Someone else asked the same question earlier, in March and the response was based on the fact that we cannot be expected to pay back the BTC at today's worth since we bought and sold the BTC from MTI. But that is not the case. I used a pocket app on which I converted my Rands to BTC. Then I deposited the BTC into MTI and when I withdrew it, it was paid out in BTC and I had to convert it back in the pocket app. 

I received my email claiming the amount early in March. I only saw it now. So what now?

Please advise
