Beware of these scams in the market. Don’t invest blindly and lost all your hard earned money. Anything that is too easy to make money is usually a scam. Read the following interesting collections and be forewarned.
(strange, both in Pandan Indah) - Island Red Cafe collects members RM6,000 each and promised 5% return every month and even give you a name in the ROC as a shareholder but what’s the point when they run away? Stevens Corner, the famous indian coffee shop follows due to drop of business since their renovation. They collect RM3,000 per member and promise return of RM150 monthly and plans to open nice fanchisee cafe called StevensTeaGarden.. Someone mentioned they will make you sign an agreement that give them the rights NOT to pay you anything in future. If you really wish to join, ask for a copy of their agreement and consult your lawyer BEFORE paying them. Bet you will NOT get a copy. Both collect monies from new members with MLM recruitment schemes and pay the old members like Sunshine Empire. You never know when they will run away.
This licensed and legal Company has an impressive office at the ground level of KUB building along Jalan Yap K wan Seng, near Menara Public Bank and AmBank Building . They also have a showroom office at the ground level in the next building. 3 or 4 months ago, Singapore ’s Straits Times and The Paper published big news reminding their people to be careful and NOT to believe in them. Hope someone can put up the link or
> google for it.(As expected, they STOPPED paying back members now and all investors LOST their money).
Someone below has put a link to the Singapore news. In fact there are more to it. Although Singapore is investigating them, they did not stop their business as the business is legal and so far, no Singaporean have failed to receive their commissions as promised. Thus, the government cannot stop them yet. The news published that the founder, director and group president is someone named James Phang but he is NOT the owner. Isn’t this quite strange ? At the end of the game, James Phang can just disappear from the Company easily and claimed that he was just “employed”. Such trick always happened in scam businesses. Now, the Company has STOPPED paying commissions and interests to members with the excuse that the Singapore government has freezed their bank account while under investigation. Do you think their boss will be so stupid to keep much monies in the bank to be freezed? They are all transfered away. It’s just an excuses not to
> pay back to members and members are only paid “e-bonus-points” which is cashless. If they wish to
> convert to cash, they have to recruit new members to pay them cash and the recruiter less out trom the amount. So victims act like Vampires and “forced” to victimise other victims if they wish to get their monies back. And their victims will later transform to vampires and the scam carries on……
This Company owned by 2 young men, Stanley & Rey Gan, office in Queens Avenue Park has collect multi-millions the last 2 years. Claimed that they tied up with Telekoms, Utility Board payment like Water & Electricity bills, even Maybank got fooled by them. Advertisement Billboards everywhere. They STOPPED paying back their members few months ago and the members cannot do anything because they are made to sign an agreement unaware that they have to claims if the company stopped paying them by CHANGING terms and policies..

So, you have finally decided to be a blogger. Do you know the real reason why you want to be a blogger. For some people, it might be because they want to have an online diary to express themselves while others want to share their hobbies such as reading or playing games.
There are actually several reasons why one wants to be a blogger.
1. You want to earn money
Many people start a blog in the hope to earn money through the blog. The only problem is they might not know how they can earn money from their blog except by using Google Adsense. Money being a factor to start a blog is either a make or a break in the blogosphere.
2. You think you know something
It is obvious that when you blog, you are sharing knowledge with people. In this case, you must have known something that you can teach other people about. For example, you know how to play World of Warcraft and increase your character’s level faster than anyone else so you start a blog to share your tips.
3. Learn something
You will be surprised at how much knowledge you can learn when you start to blog. Imagine having to integrate writing and communication skills when you blog, thus helping you to improve your writing skills and communication skills at one go.
4. Inspire someone
Are you a cancer survivor? Perhaps you can start a blog and talk about your journey through recovering from cancer from surgery to chemotherapy. This will inspire other people with the same fate as you and motivate them to be strong so that they can heal just like you did.
5. The love for writing
You love to write and share it with the whole world about what you have written. You can have a blog to store all your great masterpieces, be it the next ‘Harry Potter’ series or simply poems and short stories that you have written. Mind you, someone might approach you to publish your work if you are lucky!
6. Freelancing portfolio
If you have a website dedicated to your services, that would be great but if you just want a small space on the web to promote your portfolio, a blog would be convenient and easy to set up. Whether you want to showcase your latest designs or writing samples, create a blog and spread them around to your potential clients and friends.
Have you found the real reason to have a blog?
Wishing you all the best from us.

Freelancing is not as easy as it seems. From quitting your day job to finding freelance projects that pay well, you need be careful in everything you do. Since freelancing is rather new in Malaysia, you might not know that there are many sites that you can try your luck in getting the best projects.
Common Malaysian sites such as Lowyat Forum and AsiaPartTime provide local opportunities but what if you want to try international projects that can be more difficult and yet more fulfilling, where do you go?
There are sites that require biddings while others are more flexible in terms of applying for the projects.
If you want to try bidding for projects you never dreamed of working on before, Elance is the best place to start.
- Elance provides three free bids for you every month. Upgrade your membership if you want up to 20 bids or more. (It is not compulsory to upgrade since registration is free).
- Elance is using escrow to process payment so you are well protected from scammers.
- Elance has a huge database with thousands of projects to choose from so you can browse through the projects and pick the best three to bid on.
- Elance connects you to international clients and if you are successful, you stand a chance to have a long lasting relationship with your clients.
Other bidding sites include:
However, apart from having to apply for projects, you can get potential clients to approach you in a simple way.
By using Malaysia Craigslist, you can advertise your services and potential clients will be able to contact you should they be interested in your services. While this is not a guaranteed way to score freelance projects, but it is worth a try. At least I managed to get a job through my ad on Malaysia Craigslist.
The key is to post your ad in the suitable category and the right country (I.e.: Malaysia).
Wish you all the best form us.
