MMM founder, Sergey Mavrodi has written another letter to Nigeria, this time he wrote to the Nigerian media, journalists and experts.
In the letter which was contained on the dashboard of all Nigerian participants, Mavrodi accused the media of being “irresponsible”.
He said that the freezing of the scheme could have gone unnoticed if not for the activities of the media who are exploiting the news to sell their publications.
According to him, the media is creating unnecessary panic not minding the interests of their fellow citizens who are participants.
He also reassured participants that the system will resume in January as it had promised.
Since Tuesday when MMM announced “freezing” of all accounts, and suspension of withdrawals, MMM has taken over the media: print and electronic and has dominated the airwaves.
The social amd conventional media had been awash with news of the “crash” of MMM as many TV and radio programmes now center on MMM and other similar money making schemes.
Read the full text of the letter obtained from he personal office of a participant:
Dear journalists, “analysts” and all kinds of “experts”!
Please stop using MMM to gain cheap popularity. Leave us alone and let us work without interference. I’m just astonished by your irresponsibility and cynical attitude. Interests of millions of people, your fellow citizens are at stake. Don’t you have any sympathy for them? Why are you fueling hysteria around MMM and provoking a panic? Why are you doing this so diligently and persistently, what is your purpose?
In fact, absolutely all your provocative and worthless articles and “analyses” (I said “worthless” because you do not have any real information about what happens in the System, and might have never had; you simply invent everything, fabricate it) are merely negative: “MMM has collapsed!!!.. MMM will not be working in January!!!..” etc. Are you intentionally presenting all of it in such a manner and whipping up tension by any means possible in order to increase the ratings of your publications and attract attention to them? Don’t you care about people at all?
So, nothing has collapsed, and MMM will safely resume its work in January, as announced. Suspension of work for holidays is a usual thing, merely working moment, no more than that. It would have remained a normal, just a part of the usual routine, and might have gone almost unnoticed if it were not for your totally cynical and irresponsible attempts to advertise yourself, create a scandal out of nowhere, and make the most of this news topic in any possible way.
Again, leave MMM alone and let us work. Nothing has collapsed, it will perfectly resume its work in January. We Can Change the World!
