How Ponzi Scheme Nearly Ruin My Life and Made Me To Lost Big In the Year 2016
The total amount of money lost in the year 2016 is #2,679,000
Here Is how I lost them
- In June 2016, Paypal froze my $3600 (the present currency value then was 280/$). They banned me because I always changé my account’s email address, so they penalised me and frozen my account for 180days. After the 180days, that is six (6) months, I tried to withdraw the money but I couldn’t, even when they insisted that I must withdraw it to my bank account, I tried, all to no avail. It all failed!
But note – PayPal not a Ponzi but can send someone back to village if care is not taken
- In October 2016, I lost $1000 (Currency value then was 530/$ ) I invested in Ponzi scheme which a friend here introduced me to; MMMunited. I initially contributed $200 worth of bitcoin to the platform, when I saw proof of their payment I invested another $1000 with them, after paying the money to them, unfortunately, my internet subscription expired, and I was not in a placé where I can stack back my data subscription, my ATM not with me, there office closed etc.
So there was Nothing I can do then and there. The next day, I hurriedly went back and subscribed my internet. To my surprise, they restricted me from the system. I tried all I could, but there was nothing I could do about it. $1000 lost just like that. I kept it to myself.
- The same October I lost $500 (the present currency value then is 540/$) A friend here which happen to be somebody I respected so much and I will continue to respect him till the end of time, introduce me to HR (Helping Revolution). He told me they are very trustworthy and excellent. That I can invest in bitcoin to double and withdraw it in 7days after investment. So because of the trust and respect, I have for him I agreed to invest with them. Following that, I bought bitcoin worth $500 at the rate of 540/$, and I contributed the cash to the HR.
After 2days of my investment with HR, they turned to scammers and vanished into thin air with my money.
I couldn’t believe this. But that’s my story
Life goes on.
- $700 November 2016 (Currency value then is 530/$) I lost it to mmm south Africa. A friend here on Facebook introduced me to this site called mmm south Africa.co, He advised me to put cash in it, and I will get 150% of my capital back in under 9days, as a sharp person, I contributed $700 worth of bitcoin to this Ponzi scheme, even my friend CHIDIEBERE warned me against it, but I didn’t listen to him, being a big time risk taker.
At the ninth day, I was due to cash out.
Unfortunately again when I try to log in, the web link kept redirecting me to Godaddy website, which means the site has been disconnected. Therefore my money lost with it. AGAIN
- Last venture – MMM Nigeria, I choose to contribute cash on mmm August with the entirety of 200k, I contribute this cash, and with God, I got the cash and my benefits in it.
In November, I decided to PH 500k into the MMM Ponzi Scheme. Now come December 2016. I was supposed to GH on Thursday, but due to the fact that I want my mavro to grow more, i decided to GH the following week Tuesday.
At the night/midnight of Monday and Tuesday, MMM Nigeria solidifies everyone Account from getting help, this is how I lost my #500k.
In conclusion, I lost all this money last year between October to November which is like 3 months ago
I decided not to talk or even mentioned all the name of people that introduce me to the Ponzi scheme business. Instead, I see it as a game of risk.
Another thing is, I never feel that I lost any money online. Because I am mature, I am not a Lazy Man that loss without getting it back,
