MMM calls for mass publicity ahead of expected January 13 resumption

MMM logo used to illustrate the picture.

Popular money-doubling scheme, MMM, has called on its participants whose accounts were frozen to begin online publicity for the scheme ahead of its resumption date.

The scheme which has over 3 million Nigerians in its books placed a one-month ban on all withdrawals on December 13, 2016.

The development, which occurred a day after the Founder, Sergey Mavrod, said MMM had done a lot to improve the welfare of Nigerians, sparked fears among many Nigerians that the Ponzi scheme had crashed.

A letter displayed on the page of the scheme cited “heavy workload on system” as the reason for the suspension.

With the ban on the accounts, members of the scheme who were due to withdraw both their capital and 30 per cent return on investment were told they would not be able to do so until January 13.

As the resumption date is only a few days ahead, the scheme has asked its participants, whose accounts were frozen, to perform “Promo Tasks: A New Tool for MMM Community Development.”

MMM in a message to subscribers said the tasks, which should be done both online and offline, is expected to promote the scheme and drive “traffic and participation” by the time the handlers lift the freeze on January 13, 2017.

“Being an MMM member implies not only opportunities, but also a responsibility for the state and development of the MMM Community”, the message read.

In the message, the scheme also said that members who performed these tasks will be rewarded.

Nigerian agencies like the anti-graft EFCC and the Central Bank have warned Nigerians against MMM and other Ponzi schemes, saying they were fraudulent.

    I now have no doubt that some employees of Premium Times had “invested” heavily on this scheme. The writer of this article and even the past ones is usually carrying out marketing expeditions for MMM. Does this sound like news to PT? Is this not publicity to their members? Na wa o.

U know what? Someone who has owed me 200k (a relative somehow) told me that he’ll pay me back 2nd week of December and I was so happy for him. But on the 14th, he told me it would be in 3rd week of January 2017. Later on, someone told he did MMM and was hoping to make money. And I screamed. If in the 3rd week he tells me any bull…., I’ll counsel him before he commits sui cide. Same goes for u … Try and locate a counsellor near you.

            But u sef, think abt this thing…where will they get the money to pay when you sent your money to one lucky chap? There’s no bank account, no office, no business. You helped someone. Period. If someone is not able to help you back, why do u disturb us with MMM news? I beg u, park well o. No be me say mek u dash person money. Kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kekekekekekekeke hahahahahaha have hehehehehehe…you’re on ur own.
