MMM bounces back with new models, begins payment to micro-investors
*Warns against acting ‘suicidal’ while waiting to be paid
POPULAR money-doubling scheme in Nigeria, Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox, MMM, resumed operations yesterday—a day earlier than the promised resumption date with new models for participants. Saturday Vanguard observed that the development elicited excitement among participants, who expressed confidence in the scheme.
The mood on various social media platforms was also euphoric, as members commended the faceless administrator of MMM for keeping its promise. The Ponzi Scheme had in a statement announcing its resumption, noted that participants could now create Get Help requests(get earlier frozen funds), adding that the decision to open earlier than today was to reassure its members…
The statement obtained by Saturday Vanguard on its website reads: “The holidays are over, and we’re now open. Just as promised. You might have already noticed that we always stick to our promises. Actually, we promised to be open on January 14, but we are open now, January 13, which is a day earlier. I hope members of the system will forgive us for that.
‘’It is related to the hysteria raised by the authorities and the mass media around MMM. By joining forces, they have managed to nearly give the members of the system heart attacks and have frightened them out of their wits.
Poor souls don’t know what to expect. This is why we have decided, considering the situation, to reach out to members, reassure and cheer them up by opening a little earlier. After all, together we can change the world.
‘’ MMM resumes its usual operation. You can now create your GH-requests. However, it is obvious that panic will reign in the first few days after the re-opening of the system. We are likely to be deluged by GH-requests. Therefore, we are going to make gradual paybacks by setting internal output limits.
In other words, we will only pay a certain amount per day. Please, be prepared to wait for a couple of days. We are certain things will then calm down, and the system operation will return to normal. We are the ones setting the limits, so it’s completely under our control, and we are not expecting any emergencies in principle.
Have no fear and go on about your business as usual. ‘’As the system is socially oriented, we will make paybacks to the poor and the economically disadvantaged in the first place: it means to the members with small PH amounts. The richer can wait.
Moreover, we have warned you repeatedly to only provide help with amounts that are not critical for you. Therefore, if these large amounts are not critical for them (the richer), they can wait a few days. No need to be tragic about it.’’
