minimum of 300,000 barrels per month, a maximum of 500,000 barrels per month
Can you imagine they guys wants you to be his partner in stealing a minimum of 300,000 barrels per month to a maximum of 500,000 barrels per month. He thinks people will really believe in him and later after trust based on greed is developed, he can later ask for a small amount to carry out some small re-requisite/ task to finalize the deal.

MESSAGE FROM Engr Abelardo Fernandez
I make this introduction based on my regard for your credibility. My name is Engr. Abelardo Fernandez. I work with the Sao Tome and Principe national petroleum agency.

To be precise, I oversee the issuance of oil allocation license for our oil company. My position in the agency entitles me to recommend oil allocation bidders and actualize oil lifting and exploration allocation licenses to my candidates based on my interest. I also oversee and approve the issuance of the license for oil allocation in our company and also monitor the lifting procedures in our company.

In July 2007, I facilitated and actualized the license of a candidate. A business man from Korea (Comprehensive details to be provided subsequently).The license was for 1 year at 24 million BBLS/12 months. Incidentally the candidate was no more. The license has been valid till date (as I always ensure that I keep to my side of the bargain), I have decided to begin using the license from October 2018. I am in need of a partner from your country whom I can trust. I will package this partner as the allocation license beneficiary and assign the license to this partner. Due to my position in the petroleum agency, I cannot handle this position. Your profile fits into the criteria of a partner I need. This is why I am contacting you. With the trend of events in Sao Tome and Principe, we shall be able to lift a minimum of 300,000 barrels of BLCO per month. This will fetch us an average of US$28 million per month. And we have from October 2018 up until October 2019 to lift crude oil which will fetch us approximately (12) x (28) Million dollars. Which is approximately 336 Million dollars for the rest of the time of the License allocation? I have ready buyers who are waiting and would be ready to scramble for any number of barrels we lift. Also I will oversee all lifting procedures with the available mercenary around. This is what I propose:

1. Your company profile shall be used in place of the initial license Operator. This I shall handle with my capacity in the company.

2. I will ensure that your company's profile is recognized as the current license operator and that we have a mandate for at least minimum of 300,000 barrels per month, a maximum of 500,000 barrels per month. Starting from Octorber.


3. I will ensure that all lifting procedures are in place and buyers readily available to purchase the product.

4. You shall stand in as the license operator for all lifting and sales transactions; we shall open an account for the receipt of the oil sale proceeds in which both of us shall be signatories to the account or you can provide your personal or company bank account to receive the payments on our behalf.


5. We shall split the oil sale proceeds in the ratio of 60:40 equity shares. I shall be entitled to 60% share while your company shall be entitled to 40% share. Please note: no third party arrangement shall be allowed. I believe you are a man of wisdom and intelligence.


This offer I make to you is based on utmost good faith. I could be Jeopardizing my position in the agency if a word of this goes out.

Therefore without mincing words, I rely on you for utmost confidentiality on every bit of detail relating to this transaction. Please reply this email strictly at engr.abelardofernandez24@yahoo.com

I am in London on official duties at the moment waiting for your response. Upon your positive response, I will be willing to forward to you proof of my proposition and my personal identity. Also I shall fly back to Sao Tome and Principe and from there we shall commence operations. I shall also provide you details of the former


License operator and a copy of the license issued to him for the lifting of crude oil in our company which I personally approved and endorsed. Also procedures for license reassignment and actualizing the rest of the project shall be provided to you.

Please in response to this email, quote the reference number:

Crude oil Lifting License No: ANP/STP-C-0589124

I look forward to a prospective business relationship between us.

When you send this small amount he asks to fulfill a pre-requisite to start the theft, will vanish.

MESSAGE FROM Roger Stellard Kristinushok Girl Kristina
Hey hey my awesome pen-friend! This is Kristina. I am Russian and I am thirty-five years old. Just to give you some introduction about my life: I work as a medical assistant at private clinic. I apologize for the discomfort. I don't want to insist but I look for a serious relationship, beginning from Internet and passing to real life. If you have no similar intentions, you better not reply back. If instead you find me pretty and want me to send you my photo or more pictures, just let me know. Id kindly ask you to tell me more about your city and send your snapshot. Hope that this is your real name. Like I said, I only look for genuine relationships and hope to build something meaningful with you! Look forward to your reply, Kristinushok,

ADVICE FROM fcadmin
1 Don't give out you email unless you want contact from the recipient. Businesses will sell or trade your information.
2. Don't respond to junk mail. Try not to open it, never click on any links or download any attachments. They will set cookies, load trojans or validate your email address if you respond.
3. Move junk to the junk folder rather than just deleting the messages. Use empty to remove them for good. Outlook will learn as you mark things as junk and automatically move more stuff to the junk folder for you.
4. Mark the worst of the junk mail as phishing scams. It wont do any good but outlook will learn quicker that you don't want to see items like that.
5. Change your password. Perhaps someone else has access to your account, changing the password often will help increase security.
6. Delete your browser cache and clear the cookies often.
7. Switch to a different email service with much better spam filtering.

Obviously PayPal has nothing to do with Bolzano, capital city of the province of South Tyrol in northern Italy.

Unauthorized activity detected on your PayPal account!

After logging in to your account, we'll guide you through the steps to update your account and be more secure.

To protect your account, we often look for the first signs of potentially fraudulent activity.

ADVICE FROM Anonymous
Most phishing e-mails prompt recipients for action ASAP; that way, there isn't time to process what you're reading and doubt its veracity. But think about it: How many times have you sent an e-mail that was really urgent? Typically, urgent requests are made by phone or in person, not via e-mail. This is one of the biggest signs of a scam.

Indulgence in re-profiling funds
The perpetrators of Advance Fee Fraud (AFF), known internationally as “4-1-9” fraud after the section of the Nigerian penal code which addresses fraud schemes, are often very creative and innovative. A large number of victims are enticed into believing they have been singled out from the masses to share in multi-million dollar windfall profits for doing absolutely nothing.

Its hard to not accept that either my data/ information was sold to these developers, or they have access to godaddy systems, or someone in godaddy is leaking information and making money.

DOCX upload restricted
About a year ago, if your website used godaddy, you will be able to allow users to upload DOCX files via a form etc. Now its been denied. Its a blackmail luring you into buying the dedicated hosting package. The problem is that when you get an error while uploading a DOCX file on any website, the whole website hangs for a few minutes.

Apple force us to but its new products
I have been very upset that my iPhone 6 has slowed down a great deal. My battery was tested and it showed it to be healthy. Think Apple has done this so that it will force you to buy an iPhone 8 or an iPhone X. I do not buy their excuse the new software does not run on the older phones. My iPhone was running perfectly until they slowed it down through a software update and this was originally done without the customer's knowledge. I also learned for the first time today that when Apple does a screen share on your computer they record your computer. As a customer, I don't like the fact you are forced to have your computer recorded if you need to screen share with a tech agent. I don't think any customer wants their computer information recorded. There is no telling what Apple will do with that information. We saw the problems with what Facebook did with their members' information.

Samsung refrigerators are expensive junk
Unfortunately, I fell in love with its center drawer and purchased a 4-door Samsung Refrigerator Freezer 3 and a half years ago, for $3200.00, without doing proper research. The model is RF24FSEDBSR and was manufactured in Sept of 2014. I still love the center drawer, but it is not enough to make up for the rest of the appliance. This is a prime example of a company that thinks highly of itself but doesn't care that it sells absolute junk. The number of problems and repairs for the ice maker, add up to this being the worst purchase I have ever made and that is saying something. I have put up with months and months of temporary fixes, thawing with hairdryers, mopping up pooling water on the floor of the refrigerator section and just doing without ice.

Recently, I have had 3 service calls for the ice maker. The ice maker freezes solid and won't dispense ice. Then, I need to move all my refrigerated food to a cooler and my frozen food to the outside freezer; turn off the entire unit for 2 days, with both doors propped open; and put an air circulator/warmer inside, just so the repairman can pry the completely frozen icemaker out without cracking the wall of the refrigerator. On the last service call, he replaced the entire ice maker for about $550.00. My total out of pocket for repairs and service is about $850.00. I fully expect that amount to grow. Now, it sort of works, but makes very little ice, (which will not be enough with summer coming).

I cannot get cubed ice, just crushed ice; there is water dripping down the front of the refrigerator and it is a constant source of aggravation. Samsung wasn't sympathetic or helpful when I talked with them, and they suggested that I should have purchased their 5-year Samsung Service Agreement for $1750.00 when I had a chance. Really? They were supposed to call me back (within 24 hours) 10 months ago, and I'm still waiting. Complete waste of time, money, effort, energy and resources. "Do not ever buy a Samsung refrigerator because they are expensive junk", was the advice of my repair person, who has owned an appliance repair business for many years. I could have saved myself lots of frustration, and money, if I had done my research.

There are some big companies out there that you've probably never heard of, that know more about you than you can imagine.

They're called data brokers, and they collect all sorts of information — names, addresses, income, where you go on the Internet and who you connect with online. That information is then sold to other companies. There are few regulations governing these brokers.

Be careful when you share personal info on the internet...

Horrible experience with IKEA
Horrible experience with no resolution still! My husband and I ordered a $500 set of dressers and nightstands for our new house. We placed the order on May 7th and received a confirmation email which stated we would be contacted prior to the delivery. After nearly two weeks came and went with no update from the company, we started to get concerned.

After moving in, we had realized that the items we ordered were going to be too large for our room. I hopped on the phone to inquire about the status of the delivery and to see if it was possible to just cancel. I was not very happy after being told that there was a 110-minute wait... Yes... An ONE HUNDRED AND TEN MINUTE LONG WAIT to speak with a customer service representative. I thought it was a joke but quickly realized, they weren't kidding.

After checking the online tracker on May 20th, we realized the items were out for delivery so we took a sigh of relief and purchased new dressers, with the intent of receiving and returning the IKEA furniture. Around 6 pm that evening, I received a call from an unknown cell phone number. It was the IKEA delivery driver calling to let me know that his truck broken down but he actually lived around the corner and would be willing to bring the merchandise by after getting his new work truck within the hour. He also said that another driver could pick it up and deliver it at a later date.

I mentioned that we were planning to return the items and asked about our options. The driver stated that he would have dispatch call me in about 5 minutes. Eager to get our money back, we asked him to still deliver the items as soon as possible. We never received a call from the dispatcher and the driver never showed up with our furniture. When I called the number back, the driver did not answer and two days later, will still not return my calls.

My husband and I are FURIOUS that we are out $500 as new homeowners and still don't even have the furniture we purchased!! We can't get any assistance from customer service over the phone because of absolutely ridiculous wait times and when we visit the local store, nobody seems to know what's going on and can't help us. We just want our money back or our merchandise so that we can take it to the store and return it ourselves!

Please, please, please DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!! Just shop elsewhere and spare yourself the time and an unnecessary headache. If we don't get some sort of response from IKEA in the next few days as to what exactly is going on with our order, the matter will be escalated. It took IKEA 5 minutes to take that money out, we're not waiting months to see it refunded. We fully intend to hire an attorney, should the issue continue to persist.

Nikon has the worst customer service
I purchased a "Refurbished" tilt-shift lens from Nikon USA that was described as being "Like New" after being gone through by them. I paid over $1500 for the lens and so I'm expecting a quality product. The lens arrived and one of the adjustment knobs wasn't working. I contacted Nikon immediately and told them of the situation. They told me I could send it in for repair. I asked how long that would take and was told it would be around 2 weeks or longer if they had to order parts from Japan. I wasn't happy with that answer. I bought the lens because it was advertised as being already repaired and in proper working order. So I said I would like to return it for either a replacement or a refund. They told me they didn't have an exchange and that they would issue a refund. I sent it back following all their instructions and with a proper return authorization number.

Now I've been waiting for my refund so that I can purchase a lens from another seller since Nikon said they don't have another in stock. They've had my returned lens for 2 weeks now and I still have not been refunded. They say it can take up to 2 billing cycles to receive my money back... WHAT??? They are keeping my money for up to 2 months?? Will I be paid interest on my money?? I ordered this lens for a project, I don't want to wait another 2 months. I have over $30,000 of Nikon gear I use in my business. This really doesn't sit well with me. For the first time ever I have a strong urge to sell all my Nikon gear and switch camera systems.

Changing flight times without intimation to passengers
We all know Shaheen Air is a budget airline but it does not mean that the airline is allowed to ignore its duty of care towards its customers. The airline allows website purchases which means passengers can buy tickets from anywhere in the world. It also allows web clients to provide international phone numbers and email addresses for providing information. But if a flight is delayed it does not send text messages to phone numbers which are not Pakistani.

Turns out it was not just one flight delayed, the whole schedule was to be changed for the whole summer season. This means the airline knew of this change well in advance (probably even months before), but the airline did not bother to inform its customers neither on the website, nor through email/ phone. Let the people suffer, why should the big guns bother.

With low budget airlines and specially with airlines from a country like Pakistan, ensure to double check the flight times before leaving home. These airlines will not take responsibility for any mismanagement on their part.

Walmart sent me the product I bought in horrible condition
I purchased a BeautySleep Sanford Plush Mattress from Walmart.com and my mattress arrived at my door in horrible condition. The man who delivered it, from the start, asked me to get up into the small delivery truck and take a look at my purchase. Upon inspection, the plastic protection at the front (top) of the mattress had been broken open in several places, and the material/top of the mattress was embedded with oily-black semi-trailer brake dust or some sort of black STAINS! The delivery driver said that I could reject the delivery but that it would probably be best if I just ACCEPT DELIVERY, and he had me take photos of not only his original delivery invoice, which proved that his company had received the mattress in its horrible condition, but he also told me to take photos of the mattress; as he took photos of his own of the mattress once he had brought it up to my house.

The mattress was under $300.00, so it was a cheap purchase, but this should not mean that I should have had to accept a filthy mattress. Thanks to the WALMART.COM's choice of shipping/deliverers (Pilot Freight Services), and thanks to the fact that WALMART chooses to not respond to my complaints/photo proofs that they are totally irresponsible.

Extremely disappointed with my experience at Adidas
I woke up at 3 am to order a pair of limited Ultraboost LTD shoes. I happen to snag a pair, and upon receiving the shoes, I noticed that the cage was cracked where the laces were. So I call Adidas and get the most unprofessional support. First off, Adidas must be just hiring anyone for their customer service because the representatives you talk to do not sound professional. Even the supervisor I requested to talk to didn't give a care in the world about my issue. All he could offer me was to return the shoes and gave me a 15% discount code.

Now mind you, they have a FULL stock release in EU and AU, yet they can't even ship me out a replacement after not making sure QA did their job before my shoes came to me. By far the worst customer service from Adidas. They showed that they didn't even want to perform well and beyond to even help me out a little bit. Super disappointed but can't do much now.

Microsoft update damaged my PC and my business
I have often had issues right after Microsoft installs an update to my PC. The March 2018 update locked me out by killing my mouse and keyboard so I could not log in. I spent around $140 at Fry's to have my PC files backed up and everything wiped. We all thought I had been attacked by a virus. After spending days trying to get into my PC myself, and days waiting for Fry's to restore my PC, I had to reinstall all of my programs. I spent almost 2 hours on hold with Viper support only to find out that they were inundated with calls from others having the same issues after to Windows update.

They re-sent my software and explained what happened with this:"We have researched this issue internally and have found this to NOT be a VIPER related issue. We contacted Microsoft directly and Microsoft has confirmed KB4074588 has known issues where some USB devices stop working. We recommend contacting Microsoft directly for any issues related to your USB Keyboard and Mouse no longer working. Their contact information can be found at ** or by calling 1-800-642-7676".

After trying to get answers and compensation over the phone, I had to drive to the Microsoft store and talk to a manager. He said they were aware of the issue that was happening "on older PC's".

I am a senior living on Social Security with limited income and thought they might at least pay me out of pocket expenses. The manager came back with $100 in Microsoft gift certificates and said he would escalate my issue to corporate but could promise nothing. After getting home, I looked at what was available at the MS store. Nothing there was of interest to me. Follow-up calls just led to more frustration.

LACK OF SUPPORT FOR SMART TV
During the last year, my Samsung Smart TV Series 7 (7500) has stopped playing Netflix or Youtube etc. Even the websites with streaming videos dont work. I found out that the common denominator is the TV. It is not supporting the video based websites or apps anymore. When I approached sumasung, no answer was provided. There are many blogs on Samsung website, blaming internet connection or the owners of Netflix and Youtube. Surprisingly Netflix and youtube work on the newer models. A perfect example of a giant untouchable like Samsung trying to deflect responsibility on others. Obviously there is a problem with the core system Samsung is based on. Most companies try to develop a bug fix rather than blame everybody else for their buggy system.

Have you tried updating to the most recent firmware? (I did that) Have you tried a reset? (What a primitive solution, I did that too) Have you tried adjusting your DNS settings? (DNS adjustment is not required for DHCP) Is your television able to access the internet? (Now thats calling me Stupid) Are you using a wired or wireless connection? (What difference does it make, I can still google and browse the internet) How far is the TV from the router? (Not even 5 meters, happy now ?)

Facebook stole 200$ from us
This happened to my mom right in front of me about a month ago. She randomly got a message from someone she didn't know saying her request to connect on Messenger had been approved. She did not try to connect to this person. Within a minute, it said she had successfully sent them $200! We tried to cancel but it went through too quickly. This happened on the computer, so I took a pic with my phone. Within 3 minutes from when they were connected on Messenger, everything was gone. There was no message to this person anymore!

Since Facebook has linked up with PayPal, we disputed this payment with both and the claim was denied! We then took it up with the bank, who also denied it. They all three claimed it didn't seem like "unusual activity" since money has been sent through Messenger before. The money that was sent before was a donation of $50 while we were surrounded by crazy wildfires. Never has a large sum of money been sent to an individual. I'm planning on leaving this review on PayPal as well as the bank, in hopes I can be connected to someone who has gone through this and successfully disputed it.

A university with no regard for students
An open university that is running in almost 8 different countries has no easy method of verifying transcripts of international students and makes the students waste time on getting attestations from multiple Ministries, Embassies and Notaries. On top of that the University Venue in Dammam shifted recently to an unknown place with no intimation on their website. The old venue merely mentions of the move on a badly handwritten piece of paper stuck to the main door. "We have moved to Airport Road". Its written in one single language whereas the university provides courses in multiple languages to students who speak different languages. Meanwhile airport road is almost 40 km long and finding the university on the airport road will definitely be a nightmare.

Sony now is the worst company on earth
4 months ago we bought a 55 inch Sony from [Best Buy] with one year warranty, after few days we started to notice two white spots, after once in while the white spots became longer until we have a half picture, we called Best Buy, people advised us to contact Sony, and we did so. A female voice responded, she asked us to do few things with the original remote control, nothing happened. Then she told us the TV is defective, they will replace it, just wait for an e-mail & follow the instructions. We received the e-mail and what they asked us to do... To take 3 photos, 1st photo the TV showing its four corners, 2nd photo the serial number on the back of the TV which was hold on the wall by a bracket, it was very difficult to take the number, 3rd photo of the receipt, attaching them to an e-mail and to wait 4 working days, we did but we didn't hear from them!

We kept sending emails and make phone calls... Until one day a rude mean person called, accusing us that we broke the screen, I asked him, "Please let me talk another person." He refused, then I asked, "Can I talk to a supervisor," he refused too and he hanged up, letting me confused what I did wrong?

WHY I FEEL CHEATED
My aunt was facing a problem with cheating. It was about one year ago. My aunt was a DBBL (Duch Bangla Bank LTD) User. She usually took off her money from the DBBL (Duch Bangla Bank LTD) account. She has her own account like others. One day she was sleeping at noon. Suddenly, her mobile phone was ringing and she saw that an unknown number was calling her. Normally she received the call.

After giving salam, a person told that "Have you a DBBL (Duch Bangla Bank LTD) account of your own?" She says "yes. I have" The person then told that "your account is not safe. It is blocked. If you have any money oo your account then urgently take off your money from it. Otherwise, If you want I can help you. What you say about it?"

That moment, she was being scared and without thinking any thinking she says "yes". Then he (the unknown person) gave some instruction and she undoubtedly follows them all. After the call ends then she checked her DBBL (Duch Bangla Bank LTD) account and she notices that it was empty. There is no money.

When she contacts the DBBL Customer care they said they can't help anymore. It was hacked and they also said that this is totally my aunt's fault.

Prom Photos
So, I graduated in college august last year. Here in Brazil we usually do big parties when we graduated and there are a lot of companies that do just that: help students organize their parties. It's kind of expensive, like 4 - 10 thousands reais, it depends. One of the main parts of this contract is the photo coverage. The hired company is the only one allowed to take professional or semi professional photo and videos of the party and prom. So the problem is, I did ket my photo and didnt have big problems, but there is a lot of my friends who still couldn't buy the photo. They call, they go to the company, they sent emails, and the company just take a long time to go to their houses to sell the photos, i have friends even starting to think they lost the photos. It`s such a special moment for us and it`s really sad if we dont get this memories photos that we pay (a lot) to have.
In the print, my friend is telling that she payed the photos im march and they still haven't delivered the pics. (She received only this weekend)

If you`re from Brazil, or any country who have similar cultural thing, pay attention to which company you hire. Sometimes it actually looks like they are a big and trustworthy company, but please, try to talk to people who hired them before to see which problems they had.

WHY I FEEL CHEATED
If my iqama [residency visa] expires and is not renewed for some reason, or if i do not visit the bank to show my face, every year, even if my visa is renewed, my bank account will be frozen. Once my bank account is frozen, no money can be taken from it, even if your kids are dying of hunger or your pregnant wife needs medicine.. Your driver's license will also be frozen, credit cards as well, your phone number may also be disconnected. It is my hard earned money but because of the laws based on the principles of slavery, your money is not yours if the masters decide to do so.

Nowhere in this world will this happen. Actually most countries want you to deposit your money in their banks and try to give you a sense of security, so you keep the money invested with them.

Try your best not to save any significant money in Saudi banks. If your money is stuck in a bank or if your company is not paying salaries on time, which is normal in most Islamic countries, there will be no way to get your rights back, and ultimately your visa will expire, and why would a company not paying your salary renew your visa, and the Saudi religion and the society will be happy to throw you out of the country without giving you any of your rights.

I was sitting behind 8-10 members of Saudi Arabian Airlines flight crew which were probably returning from their duty or training or whatever. They have the seats with the best leg room. They are extremely loud. And right during the safety presentation before take-off, when the TV screens are asking to turn off all electronic devices, these guys are totally ignoring the safety requirements and keeping up with their ignorant behavior.

Expensive service
Recently I sent a parcel to Pakistan weighing around 1.5kg. DHL charged me around 463 QR for the service and informed me that there is a possibility of extra charges at destination. (he was unable to tell me the figure) Secondly the parcel got delivered after five days on Wednesday.
To my surprise my family had to pay more than 5500 rupees (equal to 220 QR) to have the personal parcel /gift released.
The current one way ticket from Doha to ISB is 790 QR including all taxes.
It was probably wiser for me to take the 200 QR gift personally to Islamabad and get the bonus of enjoying few days with family.

It would be better if you bring your own vehicle going to far places because if you keep relying on public utility vehicles, your safety might be in danger. But if you don't have any private owned vehicles and would rather choose to ride a public utility vehicle just like a cab, investigate if the driver is reliable and make sure that you wont pay twice the amount of what you should pay. If you can see that your starting to be harassed, ask for help or call the cops.

ARE YOU WILLING TO BUY MY BOOK FOR $O.99 AND YOU WILL EARN $10 FOR THIS?
I went to this website which offers online jobs , so while I was going through the job posts I saw this one post which caught my attention and so I made my bid and submitted a proposal. I guess it was the next hour that I received a reply from the employer, I was excited but when I read the reply, I felt cheated because what she said on the job post was different from what she replied to me. The title of the job post was “Need 5 Persons Who Enjoy Reading- Must Have Kindle App”. It was said in the description that the task was simple and that the 5 lucky applicants will be paid $10 each but then what she replied to me after I gave my proposal was different, she actually wanted me to buy her book for $0.99 and she will pay me $10 in return. I did not agree and reported that employer. I feel cheated because I did not submit a proposal to the employer to buy her book but to apply for a job that she has posted which was actually a scam.

Don’t just easily jump into conclusion and don’t easily believe what you see on the internet even those in legit or legal websites for online jobs because even those sites has scammers.

WHY I FEEL CHEATED
This is embarrassing, and so naive of us! But I have to tell this story. My friends and I were in Times Square and this guy was outside this theater place and had these cards for a comedy club and we desperately needed something fun to do! They were 20$ upfront. He kept telling us that famous people go to these kinds of comedy clubs, and other stuff like that to reel us in. We knew that we weren't going to see a celebrity, but it still seemed like fun since it was a comedy club. We stupidly bought the tickets. I think we were all a bit pressured into buying them, if I'm being completely honest. After we went in, we realized that you also HAVE to buy drinks for minimum 20$ too! I'm not even 21, and we all wasted a lot of money that night for literally nothing. The comedy show was crappy, and I just needed to pee in the most disgusting bathroom ever thanks to the 20$ in drinks that I spent.
Later on, I did some research, and there are a lot of people that were scammed in the same way that we were.

Someone tried to steal my instagram account
I travel a lot, and my instagram account is very important to me. It's how I meet people, create contacts and make memories. Long story short, my instagram account is very dear to me, and it's not just a social platform, it's a huge part of my life. I started noticing that some of my posts were missing, without me being able to remember that I deleted them. Another time, I saw that I was following zero people! At first, I thought that it was some kind of instagram bug, and I hoped that it would fix itself, and that I would have all the people that I followed back. (It was never fixed, someone must have manually unfollowed everyone that I was following.) Can't really explain why, but I had a feeling that I should change my password to something way more complicated. A couple of days ago, instagram notified me that someone from China tried to log into my account.

Speed radars in Thuwal
Just a week ago, I noticed two speed detection cameras installed by the MOI on the Thuwal-Rabigh road. The problem is that there are no speed limit signs anywhere near these cameras, for miles and miles and no one knows what is the acceptable speed limit. Seems the purpose is to collect money only by hooking the mis-informed drivers. In Saudi Arabia a road with 4 lanes or a dual carriage should be with atleast 100kmph limit but these radars have been known for taking pictures of drivers at less than 100kmph also.

A few days ago I got a call from a strange looking number. Caller ID said that the number was a Bangladesh number. I didn't answer of course. The phone kept ringing, and after I ignored the call, I got a couple of other calls. Different numbers, but they were all Bangladesh numbers. It started to feel like harassment, so I decided to block all the numbers. I was curious, though.. Maybe even a bit weirded out, but I didn't think much of it. Until today. I heard from some of my friends that they either received or heard of someone receiving these weird calls too. Apparently, sometimes, you even get a message that would beg you to answer.

Beware of soldiers on facebook
My aunt told me that she had an online relationship that went south. One day a gorgeous man by the name Richard McCarl added her on facebook. His profile said that he was divorced, and that he was in Iraq. He was a soldier. She said that they talked for days and days, and that it was wonderful. "He was such a romantic man" she said. He would write her poems, and tell her these incredible stories about how much he's falling for her. My aunt has no children and is also divorced. Turns out, that is the kind of woman these men target for their dirty little scam. He told her that he wants to settle down when he returns from Iraq, and that he wants a life with her. My aunt was beyond happy, but then he started asking for money. At first he started asking for small amounts of cash, but over time they got bigger. My aunt thought that he was a real person since his profile had all the pictures, he had tagged photos of him and his friends. Long story short, my aunt ended up sending him about 200$, and when she refused to pay a thousand dollars for (supposedly) a plane ticket, he deleted his profile.
In the end, we found out that all those other profiles (the profiles of his friends) were also fake. It's a whole scam ring that is made to lure women such as my aunt in. They look for desperate women, often from all around the world, who are willing to send money to their internet fling.

Greeting card scams
My coworker told me that she experienced the same problem as I did, so that's why I decided to share my story with the world. Although I am fairly certain that I am not the first, or the second fool that they did this too.
The first of June is my birthday, and during my birthday it's pretty normal for me to get a lot of messages, cards and a lot of emails. I usually open them all on my birthday, but I answer them the day after my birthday. It's not unusual for me to received e-cards, but this one was a bit different. It was from a random email, but the email said the name of one of my friends. It said that I needed to download/update a program so that the card could play itself. I didn't really think hard about it. If I see that something needs to be downloaded or updated, I just do it. When I clicked on the link, it actually downloaded a virus. My computer crashed right away, and the scariest part is that whoever did that to me had access to all my personal information. Even access to my funds.
I had to buy a new laptop because I hadn't invested in a good antivirus program, so they couldn't save my laptop. I lost a lot of money, sleep and I was insanely stressed just because of one stupid fraudulent e-card.

Single Ring and hang up scam
These are the area codes being used to make single rings by conmen. 268, 284, 473, 664, 649, 767, 809, 829 and 876. You will be curious and call back to see who called. Calls made to such numbers by unsuspecting victims like you and me can cost us more than $20 for just the first minute. I have been receiving calls from +14735079791, +14735079799, +2473033396, +53588773484, +2471777847 etc etc. The communications ministries of these countries should control scams originating from their networks...

MESSAGE FROM one ring scammer
The call you make will most probably redirected to an international adult entertainment service, 'chat' line, or other premium service located outside the country.

ADVICE FROM Anonymous
Experts suggest that if you miss a call, and don't recognize the number, do not call the number back. But the dilemma is how to ensure that the unknown number is not from a friend or a relative in distress using someone else's phone. Its easier to ignore if you know that no one you know lives in Bermuda or Grenada. The conmen are targeting people who are making and receiving international calls on daily basis as a part of their regular business.

MESSAGE FROM Ben Marzouk
Look at the fraudulent length and breadth....

Greetings My Dear Friend ,
before I introduce myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I urge you to treat it serious.

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. Please I want you to read this letter very carefully and I must apologize for barging this message into your mail box without any formal introduction due to the urgency and confidentiality of this business and I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. Please this is not a joke and I will not like you to joke with it ok, with due respect to your person and much sincerity of purpose, I make this contact with you as I believe that you can be of great assistance to me. My name is Mr.Ben Marzouk,from Burkina Faso,

West Africa. I work in United Bank for Africa (UBA) as telex manager, please see this as a confidential message and do not reveal it to another person and let me know whether you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is top secret.

I am about to retire from active Banking service to start a new life but I am skeptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger. You must assure me that everything will be handled confidentially because we are not going to suffer again in life. It has been 10 years now that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas through the help of their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores

of Africa were gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transferring to foreign accounts, so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer.

I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act; I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over $5billion Dollars during the process. Before I send this message to you, I have already diverted ($8million Dollars) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is anxious now to know who the beneficiary to the funds is because they have made a lot of profits with the funds. It is more than Eight years now and most of the politicians are no longer using our bank to transfer funds overseas. The ($8million Dollars) has been laying waste in our bank and I don't want to retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account to enable me share the proceeds with the receiver (a foreigner). The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you. There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured everything. I only want you to assist me by providing a reliable bank account where the funds can be transferred.

You are not to face any difficulties or legal implications as I am going to handle the transfer personally. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me give you a detailed information on what to do. For me, I have not stolen the money from anyone because the other people that took the whole money did not face any problems. This is my chance to grab my own life opportunity but you must of the funds secret to avoid any leakages as no one in the bank knows about my plans.Please get back to me if you are interested and capable to handle this project, I shall intimate you on what to do when I hear from your confirmation and acceptance.

If you are capable of being my trusted associate, do declare your consent to me. I am looking forward to hear from you immediately for further information. please contact me at my E-mail;(mr.benmarzouk22@gmail.com)

Thanks with my best regards.

ADVICE FROM Anonymous
Here are some ways to protect yourself from ever evolving forms of SPAMs, SCAMs and FRAUDs.

1. Do online searches.
If an unexpected email is coming from amazon, go to amazon.com and look for their spam warnings. You can also type a company or product name into your favorite search engine, along with words like “review,” “complaint”, “cheat” or “scam.” Or search for a phrase that describes your situation, like “IRS call.” You can even search for phone numbers to see if other people have reported them as scams.

2. Spot imposters.
Know your vulnerabilities. When a person is vulnerable, there is an unobstructed entrance or view to the person’s heart, being and soul. Scammers often pretend to be someone you trust, you will be ready to open up to, like a government official, a family member, a charity, or a well-known company you do or can or might do business with. Don’t send money or give out personal information in response to an unexpected request — whether it comes as a letter, text, a phone call, or an email.

3. Don’t believe your caller ID.
There have been known cases of company employees using company phones lines to commit frauds. Also, now a days Technology makes it easy for scammers to fake caller ID information, so the name and number you see aren’t always real. If someone calls asking for money or personal information, hang up. If you think the caller might be telling the truth, call back to a number you know is genuine for that company and inquire, research, and spend some time. Don’t help the fraudsters even if you think it’s for a small amount.
4.
5. 4. Don’t pay upfront for a promise.
Advance payments are always risky. Try taking an advance form a bank and see how much paper work is required and how long it takes. Someone might ask you to pay in advance for things like debt relief, credit and loan offers, mortgage assistance, or a job or a lottery win. They want all of this to be done in a hurry as these fraudulent offers are quickly closing. They might even say you’ve won a prize, but first you have to pay taxes or fees. They might invent some impressive jargon. If you do pay an advance without a guarantee, or without conducting a research, know that they will probably take the money and disappear.
6.
7. 5. Consider how you pay.
Credit cards sometimes have significant fraud protection built in, but some payment methods don’t. Know and read your terms and conditions. Some credit cards with zero fees might not provide enough protection. Wiring money through services like Western Union or MoneyGram is risky because it’s nearly impossible to get your money back. That’s also true for reloadable cards like MoneyPak, Reloadit or Vanilla. Government offices and honest companies won’t require you to use these payment methods.
8.
9. 6. Talk to someone.
Slow down, check out the story, do an online search, consult an expert — or just tell a friend. Ask yourself are you being greedy, looking for a free lunch, trying to make shortcuts in life. Before you give up your money or personal information, talk to someone you trust. Con artists want you to make decisions in a hurry. They might even threaten you.
10.
11. 7. Hang up on robocalls.
Now a days receiving calls might cost you money. These robotic fraudulent phone systems want you to say “YES” or “Agreed” to a simple seemingly innocent question, and that triggers the payment metering out of your phone bill. If you answer the phone and hear a recorded sales pitch, hang up instantly. These calls are illegal, and often the products are bogus. Don’t press 1 to speak to a person or to be taken off the list. That could lead to more calls and large sums of payments from your phone bill.
12.
8. Be skeptical about free trial offers.
All that’s seems for free has a hidden cost. We all become a part of a statistic or a study or a large data mine by using free online applications. Companies turn raw data into sellable information, to look for patterns, learn more about their customers and to develop more effective marketing strategies as well as increase sales and cut costs. Some companies use free trials to sign you up for products and bill you every month until you cancel. Before you agree to a free trial, research the company and read the cancellation policy. And always review your monthly statements for charges you don’t recognize.
13.
14. 9. Don’t deposit a check and wire money back.
By law, banks must make funds from deposited checks available within days, but uncovering a fake check can take weeks. If a check you deposit turns out to be a fake, you’re responsible for repaying the bank.

10. Read articles on how to create spam or scam or ponsi schemes

After 10 or 15 minutes my friend manage to get in the club again and find me, to tell me the car niver arrived, I check the cabify again and the guy didnt cancel but he wasn't on the way to where we were, he was definitely going somewhere else, so I cancel and asked another car that arrived and it was fine, but as I canceled after 5 minutes I had to pay.

Fake Promise for Job Opportunity
Last night I received a text message and it seemed like the sender had mistakenly forwarded this information to my phone instead of their 'sister's' number. The message was informing the supposed sister that there are job replacements within the Kenya Defense Force and she needed to send details of her son, Ken and any other two young people who have attained a grade of D+ in their Secondary education studies. I called to inform 'Major Benson' that they had forwarded this to the wrong person and they were grateful but told me, I could get the posts if I had someone interested in becoming a KDF officer. However, in order to make it happen, I had to pay him Kes.100,000 in less than 3 days and send the details of my relative to them.
This seemed like a trick and I contacted by partner to inform him the 'luck' we had. One of my brother's in law desperately needs a job and this would be like hitting the jackpot if they had a 'Godfather' to help them directly secure the job.

To my surprise, my partner's colleague at work had received the same message earlier that day and it was proven to be a case of misrepresentation, spamming and attempted fraud.

Phishing email from amazon.com
There was a time when I thought checking the headers of emails that looked like spam would give me enough information and keep me safe from fraudsters. This has changed. I am receiving emails from actual domain names of companies like Amazon and Paypal. People are receiving calls from customer service caller IDs of well known companies. Either fraudsters are becoming too smart or the companies are becoming too fixated on increasing their profits that they have stopped concentrating on probable loopholes in their systems.

The screenshot attached shows that the email is coming from Amazon and the proposed link (from the text of fake order no 192-773-7646) in the body of the email will take you to some other website to complete its heinous fraud.

I tried to find if Dean Clark was a writer. I found a few University professors by this name. There have been a few more prominent Dean Clarks.

1. Dean Clark was the voice of Berlioz in the Cartoon Movie "AristoCats" from 1970.
2. Dean Clark is a former ice hockey defenceman and head coach of the Prince George Cougars. Clark is also the former head coach of the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League.
3. Dean Clark (born 31 March 1980) is a retired footballer. He was originally a professional who made a handful of appearances for Brentford and then went on to play for a variety of teams local to north and west London, including making over one hundred appearances for Northwood.
4. Dean Clark (born 6 January 1968) is a New Zealand rugby league coach and former footballer who represented his country between 1989 and 1992.

So even though the email is not intended to be sent to me by amazon.com, I believe Amazon.com owes me a duty of care to secure its IT assets so that people do not use their domain names to send fraudster emails.

Facebook users need to be careful with viral links that try to farm for likes as they only make the cyber-scammers rich. They are also used to distribute viruses and malware.

At that point it gets blurry though. I froze for a second. I started seeing red and knew that if I didn't get out of there something bad would happen, so I left. I got in my car,locked the door, turned off my cell phone and started driving. I went back to work and pretended nothing happened.She tried to call me, I always said I was on another line and would call back when I could. She showed up about two hours before I got off and I had them tell her I was with a customer. She went back home eventually but I didn't. I slept in my car that night. I drove out on the local scenic parkway, parked at an overlook, and just sat on the hood of my car devastated. I didn't move the entire night. I couldn't sleep. When I went home, it was only because I had to work the next day. She asked if we could have an open relationship; I said no; she kept cheating; we divorced

Anonymous vs Saher
Jeddah  Saudi Arabia
Occurred: 2017-05-23; Posted: 2017-05-23

Entrapping Locations of Speed Detection Cameras
Saher is an automated system for control and management of traffic. It uses high speed digital cameras and networking technology and is linked to the National Information Center at the Ministry of Interior of Saudi Arabia. Saher system targets and captures information about reckless drivers who are dangerous to the safety of others and their own lives.

While Saher system has played a major role in controlling the recklessness of drivers on Saudi Roads, and saving numerous lives, I find it necessary to point out the difference between reformative control and entrapping. In many countries, Police and Governments have been accused of "Big Brother tactics" in over-monitoring of public roads, and of "revenue raising" in applying cameras in deceptive ways to increase government revenue rather than improve road safety. I have the following examples and suggestions;

1. Installing a speed detection camera right after an entry lane is not a good idea. Drivers need to accelerate in the entry lane to meet the speed of traffic on the highway so that they do not disturb the highway traffic and do not force other drivers to perform sudden and dangerous lane changes. In the same way if someone is not merging at the required speed, the highway traffic has to speed up or slow down to accommodate the new entrant. All these maneuvers at the merging point require increasing speeds to avoid accidents for a few seconds sometimes. Installing as camera right at the the merging point seems like entrapping.

2. There are areas where the speed limits are posted to be increasing from a slower to faster speed. Installing a camera in such areas where drivers are about to be allowed to increase their speeds seems like entrapping or unfair. It is understandable to install cameras where drivers are required to reduce speeds but not where they are required to increase speeds.

3. Installing speed cameras at intersections is inappropriate. Pictures from the San Diego red light camera systems were ruled inadmissible as court evidence in September 2001. The judge said that the "total lack of oversight" and "method of compensation" made evidence from the cameras "so untrustworthy and unreliable that it should not be admitted". Drivers need to speed up if they are caught in the middle of the intersection due to traffic blocks or when they are unable to dead stop due green turning to amber in the middle of intersection.

4. Cameras have tolerances in one direction only. Normally 5% above the posted speed is not penalized and caters to probable mistakes in accuracy. Cameras do not penalize drivers going slower by 10% or even 50% than the posted speed. This sometimes causes other drivers to speed up and pass the trouble maker.

GRIEVANCES
Lack of Due Diligence
Ignorance
Financial Losses

MESSAGE FROM Saher
The Interior Ministry has launched a new online service that will allow citizens and expatriates to check if they have fines recorded under the Saher system and raise objections if they have any. The ministry said objections must be in line with specific requirements and guidelines, including that the person lodging the appeal should be registered on its website. In addition, objections should be filed within 30 days of the date of the traffic offense.

ADVICE FROM Anonymous
Driving is not just about speeds or speed limits. Be safe and be alert. Be courteous and accommodating. Traffic rules require "giving" not "taking". Always be aware of who is around you and at what speed, relative to yours, are they moving, passing, stopping or slowing down.

It keeps crashing and showing errors. Since the website uses SMS based authentication, getting back on the site is a painstaking process, it crashes again and again.

Booking an appointment either results in "no appointments available" message, or a system crash. How can no appointments be available unless the doctors don't exist. Then the available appointments with some doctors are a month away. In a conservative society like Saudi Arabia, more than half of the gynecologists are male doctors.

We started looking for other options on doctoruna.com/en and booked an appointment via phone at lower scale Jeddah National Hospital at Macarona Street, and found it very organised and welcoming. Of course we paid from our own pocket, but the payments were less than half of what we would have paid at DSFH. (less)

Spamming by Bestwishes.Space
Lately I've been getting receiving numerous spam emails sent from bestwishes.space on various issues related to infertility, pregnancy but most importantly, these emails have been on promotion of treatment that one can use in order to be able to overcome the infertility issue. It appears as though all queries I've been making using Firefox in Linux are being data mined by bestwishes. This is because for the last three months, I and my wife have been researching on the matter and we would like to get treatment.

Do all major websites sell our info to opportunists
I recently decided to make a mobile app for Apple and thus I had to register on the Apple developer website and make payments with my credit card. Since then spammers are sending me spam emails, phishing attempts, SEO services, and sales offers etc etc, all vaguely related to my newly created apple ID.

Emails are coming from Paypal look alikes, Apple look alikes, Google look alikes, MSN look alikes, yahoo look alikes etc etc all relating and referring to my activity on Apple website. I never had this type of spam coming to me before my connection with apple. I wonder how do these spammers came to know, what I did on apple website just a few days ago. Amidst all this Apple forces you to use your real name while registering, asks you to send a piece of ID to verify, I dont know what and bla bla bla. Making you vulnerable to so much spam. On the other hand if I wanted to get a real piece of ID from apple or talk to someone at Apple, it will be so hard to get to a live person.

All this spam filling my inbox. Is it just a coincidence. I dont think so, and One wonders how is Apple the most secure platform in the world...

I have stopped buying Apple or Samsung. We are making all these untouchables so huge, they have started manipulating our lives. I bought a new smart phone for 250 dollars from a Chinese website. It has all that others offer. 128 GB of ROM, 6 GB of RAM, has an extremely nice finish and feel, allows 2 SIM cards, is light like a feather, works with a well known open source OS, and I will throw it away after a year and buy a new one, much better in specs. There is nothing so important that I need to save on my phone and that only Apple and Samsung can make secure and safe. I have no need to spend USD 1000 on a false sense of security...

Office Fiasco
I'm keeping my name confidential for personal reasons but am submitting my story so that others can beware. I am also attaching a screenshot of someone else she did her modus on. I felt cheated, used and angry for what has happened. She hurt me emotionally because we started as friends and now, she owes me money.

I met Ann about a year ago at work and I immediately felt connected to her. She is a big girl with a really loud voice and she seemed to be friends with everyone. She seemed to be "in the crowd" but she also seemed to be a "keeper of secrets." I know she talks a lot, that's part of who she was and that's what makes her so bubbly and friendly but I have shared with her sensitive things about me, some even controversial and none of it ever surfaced. I knew I could trust her. She was my friend.

Now, during this time, I was doing side selling in the office to earn a little. What I do is I have a supplier overseas providing me bags, clothes, perfume, jewelry and other items and I offer it to my colleagues to see if they are interested and simply put, do the retail selling. Ann knows this and understands why I have to do it. As a single mom and the head of my nuclear family (parents and siblings), I need to maximize all possible sources of income and I simply need to invest. So when she said that she'd like to help me out, I didn't think twice. It started with one or two items that she'll just sell at the same rate I was - so she was doing it free of charge. After a week, however, her sales pattern was just astounding so I thought it would be fair for me to either divide the profit or better yet, be her supplier.

I earned about 200% of my usual profit in the first month. Sales dwindled by the second month for Ann and that's understandable, I still got profit for the goods that were sold. As a supplier, however, it was essential that I get paid for the items I passed to her (I have to pay my own supplier too!) but due to the nature of our relationship, I told her to pay me when the items are already sold. Ann told me that she'd like to be more aggressive and just sell any item that she could so despite a pending balance, she asked for additional goods. I saw this as a business opportunity because Ann was about to be moved to the morning shift and since there wasn't anyone selling goods in the morning shift, I being on the night shift, would be able to maximize the office market.

Sales improved the following month but Ann was still behind with all the stocks that were not yet paid. We talked about allowing a payout schedule (ie selling the items in advance and getting the payment on payday). She shared to me the buyers of each item with her and when we can expect the payment. All items were accounted for and I trusted Ann.

The fourth and fifth month wasn't any better but since everything was accounted for - and I was able to get to know the people on the list and confirmed that they owe Ann, I did not see an item of concern. Ann told me that the people are simply not adhering to their committed payment schedule causing the delay and I understood that. I also had a similar disposition in the night shift. I, however, had to ask Ann to cover the earlier supplies because it's creating a domino effect. She was quick to cover the remaining supplies from the second month but asked to hold off on the succeeding, at least until she is able to collect.

I wasn't oblivious to the other businesses that Ann was also doing. On top of the goods she's selling from me, I knew that she was also selling sandwiches and was also offering debt services (loan other people money and get 20% interest).
I was confident that she'd be able to cover the rest of the unpaid supplies as well as the uncollected payment as time passes.


I started to hear some word that Ann was in the hole on the sixth month. Word has it that she owes one or two people some money and was also behind her payment. I confronted Ann and she admitted that it was true. She relayed her difficulty in collecting the money and since it's staggered collection - the full payment for all the items that were owed was simply next to impossible.
It was a tough situation to be in. Ann was also a single mom and she can only accommodate so much. I understood her and gave her some slack. I was, however, starting to be concerned, and started to collect directly from the individuals identified on our list.

Some individuals were surprised that I was collecting from them because they did not know I was Ann's supplier. I stopped because I felt like it was improper for me to do so. But time was flying and I wasn't in any better state too.

We're now on our 10th month and Ann owed me about Php 200,000 - stocks and pending payment for purchased goods. All forms of communication with Ann are currently unavailable and/or inactive. I investigated the situation myself and found out that 1) she has already moved 2) she owed a lot of people money and 3) she also had a similar case in her previous call center.

I was so angry with what she did. For me, this is estafa on the grand scale! So I started to escalate her to her superior and unfortunately, I was advised that my business arrangement is personal in nature and the office cannot intervene. I was so pissed off and I felt cheated not only because of what Ann did but because the company I work for - with all its prestigious image and so-called care for employees - apparently cannot help me!

The 10th month is still ongoing and as I become more and more agitated and stressed of the situation, I realized that 1) I cannot press charges because I do not have a business contract 2) I cannot hold the company I work for liable because there was an office policy against selling without a license/approval 3) I have to charge this to experience and likely absorb the costs. I will not stop, however, in warning off others as regards the modus.

Hold on to Your Horses, This Looks Like Another Scam!
Have you been online lately? Facebook mostly I mean? There are numerous business ideas being advertised and more so, the people falling victims are the youths looking to venture into simple and easy activities of making quick money. Some of them include Social Biz Connect and the most recent one, is Public Likes. The basic idea is recruiting individuals, getting them to join, upgrade their accounts by depositing $45 or more, and refer their friends in order to increase their earnings. while the starter account is free, it is limited to the extend that your earnings are pretty low. In addition, you cannot make any money off your referrals.

The catch is for an individual to upgrade after joining and for this, they have to pay the company to upgrade. There are some surprising facts arising from this enterprise that have raise an alarm on any one who has been scammed or has seen their friends get scammed. For instance, the site is not secure yet individuals are providing personal bank details, phone contacts and Facebook information. In addition, the administrators are declining to provide responses to the kind of work they pay individuals for while working on their website.

Scam or Real business venture, we only need to wait and see how it goes once the number of individuals upgrading their accounts and working with the company reduces.

Be careful when working with companies like Public Likes and Social Biz Connect that are making money from the affiliates to enhance the possible case of Ponzi Scheme.

Cheated by theTravel agent Company
I am an immigrant who wanted to shift from a duplex flat to 2BHK. We finalized an apartment building through a real estate agent and signed an annual rent agreement as well. When it comes to shifting to that apartment, we were shocked to see the presence of another occupant in the same apartment. I tried to get in touch with the agent but his phone was not reachable. I tried many times but all in vain and I received a message from the bank that the cheque had been cashed. Unfortunately, we don't have contract copy because that agent had taken it back, saying that he will return the same copy after owner's signature. We immediately approached nearest police station. They replied we have to approach Supreme Court (public prosecution) first. We did the same and opened the file.
For three months, we have been trying to register our case, but the CID officer asked us to wait. Every time I go for a follow-up, he tells me to 'come back next week', 'agent is not responding', 'he is out of country', 'wait more' and so on... When I requested for cancellation of my other cheques, he asked me to wait and keep a low balance in account as the cheque will bounce and they will find out the person if any complaint comes.
The agent is from Nepal and he left the country already. I am stuck now because the officials are not giving a clear picture.

Cashcrate is a scam
Cashcrate offers surveys and tests. If you complete them, you receive a couple of cents. After having registered, I immediately started completing surveys. After 4-5, the site told me that it had no more surveys to offer. This is where the scam begins. They offer you 4-5 surveys per day. You complete them, thinking about that big money that should come anytime soon. But if you completed 4-5 surveys per day, it would take you months, perhaps even an entire year to reach 14-15 dollars, the minimum withdrawal sum. It's even possible to never reach that sum because there are days where they don't offer surveys at all. In my opinion, this is all done on purpose. In these surveys, you reveal a lot of personal information. 4-5 surveys of your personal information is a huge bonus for companies, which pay cashcrate to be as scummy as possible.

BANK REFUSES TO PAY MONEY
I was a privileged client of HSBC Bank from the past few years. I have held different accounts with the bank including savings accounts of myself. A Couple of days back, I, had applied for home loan under personal category, with the Bank. Promptly, a home loan processing fee of Re 12, 000 was also paid by me.

Subsequently, the home loan was approved and we were asked to pay an additional processing fee of Re 17, 000. Upon inquiring the reason for extra fee, we were told that since we own a personal business (Limited Liability Partnership), our loan was approved under business category. As we were not satisfied with the bank’s condition of loan approval under business category, we rejected the loan offered to us. Also, we requested for the refund of home loan fee (Re 12, 000 already paid). We were informed that a refund will be given after deducting Re 3000 (for address verification done) It is very unfortunate that even after 3 months, we have not received our refund of Re 9,000.

After giving up on receiving my hard earned money because of the indolent attitude of HSBC staff. I request bank to refund my fee, along with compensation for interest.

Cheated by Online Company
I am permanent residence of Bangalore. I have ordered a combo package including cake and flowers from Fern and petals for my friend, an online florist and gift store that guarantees same day delivery and the “delivery of fresh products – always.” But they failed to deliver the product on the specified day, and when they finally did deliver it the next day, the cake was “smashed up, made of cheap wine” and of a quality that was entirely unacceptable to my friend.

When I attempted to complain about the non-delivery of the product on the scheduled day, then I found that the customer care numbers displayed on the website were not attended. I managed to find contact details from other location. One of their representatives picked up the call and they told me that they have received my order after that they disconnected the call.

Few days later, Charu My friend complained about the delayed delivery of a substandard product over a chat conversation with the company representative, Neha, who, according to her was rude and paid no heed to her complaints.

Charu then approached owner of the company, which runs a consumer helpline. She told them if we did not get the refund So, you need to pay Rs50,000 as compensation for our losses, harassment and inconvenience, Owner gave us satisfaction that severe action would be initiated against them.


When Mr Singla- Owner of the company finally said that the matter was headed to consumer court and they would have to appear in person to justify their position. With a sudden and radical change of tone, it sent a politely apologetic email to Charu, with the promise of a full refund on the same day.

I advice to people that never ever, buy anything online using your credit card from a site that doesn't have SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption installed—at the very least. If they provide cash on delivery option then always go for COD. Cash on Delivery is the sale of goods by mail order where payment is made on delivery rather than in advance. If you are not available or goods are not paid for, they are returned to the seller.
