A Nigerian man who claims that he has been scammed by the trending money doubling scheme, MMM, has cried out, lending his voice to the Central Bank of Nigeria to tell Nigerians that the scheme is nothing but a scam.
In a mail sent to Laila’s Blog, the man shared picture proofs of how it all went down, how everything went without hitches after he was introduced to the scheme by a friend and how things took a downward turn leading to his account being blocked with his N189,000 trapped in it forever!
The mail Reads:
“AUNTY LAILA : MMM DO ME STRONG THING OH!
“It started on the 19th June 2016, My friend introduced me to this MMM of a thing… I obliged and poined… It was paying well, there was no comma or full stop, not all.
“Till I opened an account for my cousin who shared the same surname. Fast Forward,,, MMM ADMINISTRATOR placed my account on temporary moratorium of getting help as they provide and get help in the system on 13th September 2016 and told me to verify identity of which I did.
“After that, I kept on contacting MMM Support of which they assured me they will remove their God forsaken temporary moratorium which they have used to scam thousands of participants (not only me) as I found out they do it secretly and MMM fortifies its system with this… That also account in a way how they pay 30‰ to their teeming community of 30% earners (Guiders, referrals and ordinary participants)… Only for my account to be blocked by the administrator earlier today that I used two accounts that the registration and referral bonuses have been deleted while my #90,000 I paid since when I started MMM which yielded 189,000 naira parted with the blocked account.
“Even as it hurts me being my first time to be scammed. I will like Nigerians to thread with caution with this MMM of a thing and keep on pursuing their dreams as there is dignity in labour. MMM IS A SCAM. For the record,,, my blocked account in MMM is [email protected] with #189,000 trapped in it.
“The account am accused of violating their policy is [email protected] which is also on their temporary moratorium (meaning another scam as that was how they started with my account [email protected]) Attached are supporting documents / screenshots before MMM CONTROL AND REVISION OFFICE (CRO) played a fast one.”
The Central Bank of Nigeria has issued warnings on several occasions telling Nigerians to desist from the ‘ponzi’ scheme which according to the apex bank, was fraudulent since it does not have the backing of any business model.
Despite the warning, however, millions of Nigerians get registered daily into the scheme while those already involved are insistent on continuing describing it as the only way out of the present economic crunch in the country.
