Last month, I helped a former officemate to supply and install Microsoft Office 2010 to government agency. Basically I helped him with e-perolehan process and provide documents for Delivery order and Invoice since he use our company letterhead and MOF license. The project went well. He supplied and installed successfully.
Payment made thru our company account and my boss need to write cheque for him. Then I was the one who bank in to his account. The BIG question here ? Should I get some commision ? I did not expect to get some cash. (Ok I lied, come on at least some gratitude for my petrol and hardwork )
He did asked for my bank account BEFORE I deposit the money to him. After that, he said that my boss will give commission to me. Come on, if my boss that generous I wouldn’t bother to write this entry ok. Anyway I just said to myself that “takde rezeki”. I know that you cannot have big margin for IT products. That is what I was being told.
Anyway, please don’t cry this is not a sad story. hehe. Allah SWT is very fair to all. Remember ” Rezeki” does not come from your boss, Government Officer, your ex officemate or others. It comes from Allah SWT. So yesterday, I accept an offer to put links on my sidebar. Just because my blog is PR4 out of nowhere.
So bottom line here , work hard , be grateful and always pray to Allah SWT for “rezeki” . I leave you with Maher Zain “InsyaALLAH”. Enjoy the lyrics and song.
Just a few days ago, my friend in India asked me to help him to purchase a software to encrypt his PHP code.
He told me that his credit card is not valid to purchase the software. He said there is rumors that some merchant don’t accept credit card from India. He offers to pay me using PayPal.
So I just followed his instruction on how to purchase the software. On the last page for payment option, I saw PayPal button. I thought he might want to scam me. So I explained my findings. To his surprise , he said that he cannot find any PayPal option on the website.
Instead he gave me his PayPal user id and password. At first i was quite reluctant since he had to give his PayPal details to me. He replied that he only have a few buck, so it will be no problem. So in the end, I just use his PayPal to pay the software.
I am not sure why there is no PayPal option on his side. Maybe its true may be not. Either way you should be careful and double check. Actually I was willing to pay since the amount is only USD 20 plus I barely know him. He is just my online friend.
Just last week I received another maybank2u fake e-mail :

First all, their English is worse. Much worse than mine hehe.
They tried to create panic towards online customer by saying that Maybank2u security has been breached. So user will straight away click the link without checking. They moron just have nothing better to do I guess. So PLEASE don’t EVER trust/believe email asking for your online banking id and password. It doesn’t matter either Maybank2U, PayPal, CIMB Click or any other online banking. Just contact your bank directly to confirm.
Maybank does not send out any e-mail or SMS requesting customers to provide personal banking ID or PIN or credit card information. Please do not log in through website links contained in emails supposedly from Maybank or other institutions. Be alert or you may fall victim to a financial scam.

According to Maybank, there are 20 phishing site that want to steal your login id and password. Beware!. So I need to update Maybank about this amalon.com.
