Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox (MMM), the Ponzi scheme which dashed the hope of over three million Nigerians in 2017, is back. The new version known as MMM Cooperation promises as much as 50 percent return on any amount invested in it — 20 percent more than what the extinct version offered.
Just like the previous version, participants are to register, invest a particular amount in the form of “providing help” and “get help” with their investment and interest back after 30 days.
And some Nigerians are falling for it yet again!
The scheme had announced a shut down in April 2018 following the death of Sergei Mavrodi, its founder but in a surprising turn of events, the scheme announced it had re-launched globally since January “to make Mavrodi’s legacy worthwhile. Like sunrise in the morning, MMM Cooperation set the pace on the 22nd of January 2019 all over the world.”
One of the coordinators who gave his name as Guider Tee on twitter, said the new MMM is now in over 170 countries.
