Update July 1, 2015: This site is only a time-waster. Be happy that you wasted only time and not money by participating at this sites hosted in the Ukraine for the case you signed up already. If you did not sign-up then use your time for something better.

The reason is described in the article Phishing: Survey & News Sites hosted at the Ukraine.

MultiTrendomultitrendo.com is the older version of trastnews.com. The only difference is that you get only $5 for each news you read. multitrendo.com uses the same privacy protection service like tempoquiz.com, whosurvey.com, vacantsurvey.com, trastnews.comfifty-news.com and wheresurvey.com. multitrendo.com is hosted like the other sites in the Ukraine:

IP Address Country Region City ISP
 
46.28.65.182 Ukraine  Kharkivs'ka Oblast' Kharkiv Itl Company

 

As multitrendo.com is already registered more than two years we can find some results at google about them. At Rippoff Report we can find a complaint Review about Multi Trendo:

Multi Trendo Multitrendo Multi Trendo is a ficticious company, not registered in public records. Say they were started 2008 in Brookland. BROOKLAND New York

Multi Trendo recently started placing ads in Craiglslist.org asking people to do news article clicks for pay per article read.

No business contact information was supplied: address other than a claim of Brookland, NYC.

Say they were established 2008. No such company name or variation of name appears in business public records in New York State, New York City or Brookland, NY. This is a fictitious company whose web site whois data is hidden and whose web server is located in the Ukraine - which raised suspicions.

Their signup asks or PayPal account number which PayPal stongly advises never giving out. The field is not long enough for standard email addresses used in allowing push PayPal payments.

The likely scam is that you enter your PayPal email address, or account number in the payment set up while using the exact same or similar password during their registration. That way they gain full access to you PayPal (or other payment processing company) account. Then they can take over your payment account.
