Sending Money to Malaysia
Living abroad in Turkey is quite challenging. My first impression when I came to Ankara is that weather would be my big problem. Communication and food should be no problem. But I was wrong. Communication is a big problem here. English is not their favourite subject I think.
Eating in a restaurant shouldn’t be much problem, as I can point what food I want and pay. But when using Bank service like Western Union here is quite trouble some. I need to send money by Western Union to Malaysia. After asking a few banks, I find that Turkish Economy Bank (TEB) Ankara is the easiest. One of the staff can speak good English.

But the problem is, the staff that handle my documents did not speak much English. I face a problem today, when I fill in the Western Union’s form as a receiver. I did not realise it until my brother told me . I rushed to the bank and explain to the English speaking lady . Then she helped me explained it to her friend at the counter. I am so relieved that I did not have to pay commission fee once more. I just need sign a new form saying that I am the sender. 🙂 (more…)
Student or Conman
Lately, Malaysian Immigration and Police has increased their raid to nab illegal African. From internet fraud to drug trafficking and messing with the local girl you just name it, the problem that their brought in here. Their modus operandi is simple, travel to Malaysia using student visa and find as much victim as their can.
The only reason they wan to come here is to make more money and not for knowledge. They already earn their scam degree in their country. “Nigerian Scam”, or “419 Scam” (so named because of the Section Number of Nigerian criminal law that applies to it), can be varies from fake identity on online dating to asking for money for custom clearance. Sweet talk and fake picture are their latest scam where not only Malaysian woman fall for it but also Australian woman. The Nigerian syndicate use Malaysia as their base for criminal activity.

Other than Google Adsense, Infolinks is another method that I use to make money online. I did Kontera before, but the earning is not that much.
