On 13th of December, 2016, news broke out that popular cash lifting and Ponzi Scheme Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox (MMM) has finally crashed, freezing the accounts of its participant for period of one month.
However, the news left over 3 million Nigerian beneficies on panic mood, though the Ponzi scheme assures all their members that they will be back on 14th of January, 2017, but many of the participants express their faith in this assurance still had their doubts.
On the 6th of January, 2017, MMM Nigeria promoters asked all their members to perform a “Promo Tasks: A New Tool for MMM Community Development”. They were urged to perform both online and offline tasks to promote the scheme in anticipation of its return on January 14.
Few days later, MMM Nigeria further announced the introduction of Bitcoins as a mode of payment as they set to resume their operations in Nigeria.
Today, one day earlier than the proposed date for the return of MMM Nigeria, the scheme posted a tweet through their official twitter handle announcing that the scheme is back.
Why reacting the news, apparent participants have taken to social media to express their relief.
I heard MMM is back? Dear friend,God gives second chance. “If” you can get this. 😀😀

Information they sent out stated that the earlier date of return was due to the “hysteria from the authorities and mass media” and also to reassure its many members. He further stated that they expected to get a huge number of Get Help requests (GH- requests) and to this effect, members that have invested small amounts of money would be attended to first. Also, there would be a certain limit to the amount paid per day.
