There was wild jubilation among the participants of Mavrodi Mondial Movement, MMM Nigeria, on Friday as the Ponzi scheme resumed a day earlier than its scheduled.
However, the pyramid scheme in a message displayed on the page of all its participants in which it announced its resumption, also raised fear in the mind of the participants, saying “we’re going to make gradual paybacks by setting internal output limits. In other words, we will only pay a certain amount per day.”
The message reads in full: “Actually we promised to be open on Jan. 14, but we’re open now, Jan. 13, as you can see, which is a day earlier. Well, I hope, the members of the system will forgive us for that.
“It’s related to the hysteria raised by the authorities and the mass media around MMM.
“By joining forces, they’ve managed to nearly give the members of the system a heart attack and have frightened them out of their wits.
“Poor souls don’t know what to expect. Will we open again or not?
“This is why we’ve decided, considering the situation, to reach out to the members, reassure and cheer them up by opening a little earlier. After all, Together We Can Change The World!’’ The message then said: “Here we go. As of this notice, MMM resumes its usual operation. You can now create your Get Help (GH)-requests.
“However, it’s obvious that panic will reign in the first few days after the re-opening of the System. We’re likely to be deluged by GH-requests.
“Therefore, we’re 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’re 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.”
It added: “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’ve 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.”
