The Bank of Ghana has asked Ghanaians to be cautious and not engage in any dealings with the MMM group as it operates a "Ponzi scheme through a virtual office". Something worth noting since the absence of a physical address would make an attempt to bring the group to book, or retrieve fraudulently earned funds almost impossible.

As its modus operadi, the group hops from one country to another gathering capital from its customers in the general public. Once the scheme reaches its saturation point it tends to crash, leaving its subscribers worried and destitute.

This is something that's been experienced in Zimbabwe, Nigeria, South Africa, and other countries.
