MMM Founder Sergey Mavrodi dead from a Heart Attack



Russian businessman and founder of the MMM Pyramid scheme, Sergey Mavrodi has died from a heart attack.

According to Premium Times, the 62-year-old was rushed to the hospital late on March 25 with pain in his chest and died several hours later.

Mavrodi’s MMM financial pyramid was a typical Ponzi scheme in which earlier investors receive their profits from subsequent investors. It also promised returns of 20 per cent to 75 per cent a month, as well as lotteries and bonuses for investors.

As soon as the number of new clients stopped growing, the pyramid collapsed, causing huge financial losses for at least 10 million people.

Between 2011 and 2016, Mavrodi launched Ponzi schemes under the MMM brand in India, China, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Nigeria. The operations were later shut down in Nigeria.

    The curse many Nigerians have fired on his head would not have let him survive. Meanwhile, and to what end? Can he carry a penny with him, no.

      Clearly the curse is not working on our politicians who are doing the real damage ?

    How are you sure he is the one that actually launched MMM? Maybe he has a namesake

    “In his childhood he was diagnosed with bilateral heart defect.” Maybe that caught up with him.

    @Bil, “In 1989 Mavrodi founded MMM.” “He was the founder of the МММ series of pyramid schemes.”
