A quest for financial freedom, landed a Polokwane couple in trouble after their money mysteriously disappeared on the MMM Ponzi pyramid structure.
The deceased Thabiso Malunga and wife Jessy Ntuli are alleged to have been owing their neighbor and church mate R50 000 which they reinvested in the pyramid structure to earn a proposed 30% interest per month.
According to a source close to the couple, the two borrowed money anticipating to reap the rewards of the pyramid structure and repay their borrowed money amounting to R50k.
“They borrowed money from their church mate (name withheld) and invested it in MMM to get 30% per month, in June they got around R15 000 as interest in which they re- invested, I am not sure what really happened but the wife (deceased) told me a few days ago that someone withdrew all their money and even closed their account.
“I am not sure what they were told by their church mate who is known as Mother but they looked stressed when they come back from Thursday church service. We were awaken by loud screams full of agony, but it was too late they had already kicked the bucket.

“We are encouraged to keep our accounts safe by placing strong password combination; the problem is there is no central office to place complaints. If their guider failed to solve the problem, so the money was gone forever.
The deceased are survived by three children including a 6-month old infant.
No official statement was released by the police as of yet.
