The Ponzi scheme, which froze participants’ accounts for a
month, was scheduled to return on January 14, 2017, but
returned at about 11 am on January 13, 2017.
In a statement announcing its return, MMM said it was setting
a limit on daily withdrawals, in order to control panic
“The holidays are over, and we’re now open. Just as
promised. (You might have already noticed that we always
stick to our promises),” Sergey Mavrodi, MMM founder, said
via the statement.
“Actually, we promised to be open on January 14, but we’re
open now, January 13, as you can see, which is a day earlier.
(Well, I hope, the members of the System will forgive us for
“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.”
Citing panic withdrawals as a reason, MMM Nigeria said
payments would take a few days. It called on the media to
“leave the scheme alone”.
“As of this notice, MMM resumes its usual operation. You can
now create your 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
“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
“This is the way it’s going to be. I’d like again to call on the
authorities and the mass media: Please, leave us alone! Have
mercy on people.”
