The money-making scheme, Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox (MMM), that collapsed months ago, has launched a weekly promotional stunt, obviously aimed at wooing old and unsuspecting new ‘investors’.

A letter displayed on the pages of participants of the scheme, urges them to invite new members. Members must invite new participants and register them as referrals to qualify for the contest.

They have the opportunity to win cash prizes between N30,000 and N500,000, under an exercise the Ponzi scheme masterminds call, “Promo-Task Contest’

The letter reads in part: “MMM Nigeria launches Promo-Task Contest.

“MMM Nigeria launches the first Promo-Task Contest – which a relevant section has been created for the contest in the Personal Office.

“Winners are selected based on the number of points received for completing promo-tasks. Whoever receives the biggest number of points becomes the winner.

“The contest period is from Monday to Sunday while at the end of each week; winners are announced and awarded Mavros (cash prizes) available for output.

“In the first contest, there are 50 prizes. First place will win N500,000; second place N300,000 and third place winner will take home N200,000.

“Fourth place to 10th place winner get N100,000 each; 11th to 30th place wins N50,000 each while participants who placed 31th to 50th wins N30,000 each.

“Members can complete both online and offline tasks with focus to promoting the community and contribute to growth of the scheme.

“The promo-task contest is a serious tool aimed at community growth, and as such, would be continuously adjusted and refined to enable MMM Nigeria to overcome.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Central bank of Nigeria (CBN) have warned Nigerians against participating in the scheme which they described as a “Ponzi” scheme.

The scheme has been mired in controversies after it placed a one-month freeze on all withdrawals from the scheme on December 13, 2016.

The scheme, however, made a comeback on January 13 and quickly placed a limit to the number of withdrawals from old-confirmed mavros (money), drawing wild condemnation from members and making many of them walk away.

    Nigeria is such a fertile ground for con-men because illiteracy level is high (your paper qualification is no proof of your street smartness), making many citizens gullible and naive. You can not be informed and still participate in ponzi schemes that offer mouth-watering benefits. The rule is: if it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably is (untrue).

    I have been a member of MMM since July 2016. I have recovered all my suspended Mavro (Cash) of 2016. I have not lost a kobo in the scheme. I was skeptical of the scheme initially before I joined after deep study of the programme. It is working for me; as simple as that.
