mmm

Sequel to the crash of the Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox scheme in Zimbabwe popularly known as MMM, the UK Independent newspaper has warned Africans against investing their money into the Ponzi Scheme.

There are similarities about this scheme in Zimbabwe and Nigeria, as it follows the same model. Both countries are also experiencing an economic crisis and many of its citizens have turned to the MMM Global as a means of livelihood.

An excerpt from The Independent’s article stated;

“That’s despite a warning from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe that the scheme was fraudulent. RBZ warned members of the public that existing investors were “paid money not from genuine market investment of their funds, but from contributions made by new investors, until a point when the scheme can no longer attract new investors”.

What it simply means is that the number of people in need of help has outnumbered the number of people joining. Right now we have nowhere to get our money which we invested.”

Despite the cautionary tales of Zimbabwe and South Africa – and indeed the original MM scheme – a branch is now proving increasingly popular in Nigeria.

A quote from a Central Bank official said;

“These people always come with very interesting propositions,” Mr Okoroafor said. “These are fraudsters who are just out there to collect people’s money and run away as soon as they hit their target.”

Nigeria’s Central Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission have warned Nigerians off the scheme but the promise of 30% Returns has proved too much for most people to resist.

  1. Sit down there dey yan oputu while rmmm is touching poeples life positively

    HOW DOES MMM ACCUMULATE THE 30%?

    A MILLION DOLLA QUESTION

    – Simple answer:

    The MMM System calculates the growth in PO and the MMM Participants deposit it to each other.

    More Elaborated Answer:

    MMM uses what we call Crowd Funding. Ever wondered how Funeral Covers work? What do Insurance use for Life Covers? How can you pay N5000 premium per month and get 1million?

    The Answer is really Simple = CROWD FUNDING.

    Even the same banks which are against MMM use Crowd Funding.

    -Scenario:

    1 If we would all claim our life insurance on the same day or week,do you think Insurance Companies would be able to pay us all? HELL NO!!!

    2 If we were to withdraw all our money from the banks on the same day,will they afford to pay us all? HELL NO!!!

    BUT WHY NOT??

    CROWD FUNDING Money Rotates, when others withdraw, others must deposit. Banks, Insurance schemes are all based on Crowd Funding. Money must ROTATE, all the money you deposit into banks and Insurance schemes is used to pay someone else when they withdraw.

    MR SERGEY MAVRODI TOOK THE SAME SYSTEM THEY USE AND APPLIED IT IN MMM.

    WHAT MAKES MMM DIFFERENT?

    MMM does NOT have a central account where all the money is deposited meaning MMM does not collect money as compared to the Banks + Insurance companies. MMM only connects the 1 who need help with the 1 who is ready and willing to provide help. So money moves from 1 participant direct to the other participant’s bank account.

    This means no 1 can run away with anyone’s money. Not even the Founder of MMM can run away with yo money. NO CENTRAL BANK ACCOUNT REMEMBER
