How is your weekend? . Good, I hope. All the while I have been telling you to work hard on making money online, rite? So today I want to share with you a true story about how money can tear a family apart.
This is based on a true story. Mr. Z worked in the Air Force as a low rank officer. He and his family lived with his brother in law somewhere in KL. His wife sold nasi lemak at a Gas Station near their house in the morning. Mr. Z rode a motorcycle to work every morning. Sometimes he would travel with his family back to the kampung by riding his motorcycle from KL to Muar with his son sitting in front. After work, he would play with his son at the park. They lived happily without much problem except for their sister in law who had been having some kind of an attitude towards them. She did not like Mr. Z and his family living there. However, his brother in law was a kind person. He told Mr. Z just to ignore his wife.
As life goes went on Mr. Z got promoted and held a position in the Tender and Project department. After sometime, he managed to understand how tenders were given and set. When you are already very familiar with it, you are in the position to control it, rite? A lot of contractors/vendors will do anything to seduce you to either take bribe or set the tender in their favor. Since money was always the biggest need for Mr. Z, he was not strong enough to fight the temptation. He started to create many new tenders in favor of his clients. Earning from as little as a few thousands and up to hundred of thousands per tender, Mr. Z became a rich man.
He bought a couple of expensive cars and houses but he would still go to the office by riding his motorcycle to cover his tracks. He bought a new house and moved out from his brother in law’s house and lived in one of the houses that he bought. His family lifestyle has changed all in of a sudden. His wife stopped making nasi lemak in the morning and he bought expensive clothing and jeweleries for her. At the same time, he helped his relative financially, especially when his brother in law almost lost his house when his wife lost her job. At least, he had paid their courtesy back.

As time went by, people started to talk behind their backs. How could an army officer live a luxury life like that? When it involves corruption and bribery, it is dirty money. No matter how nice you are, it will turn you into something bad eventually. Mr. Z started to enjoy, going to night clubs and GROs. His wife, believing that he was having an affair, started to become suspicious. They always fought and argued. Their son always became the victim. No more happy family time as it used to be. The problem got worse when Mr. Z wanted to get married and at the same time, the Anti Corruption Agency was investigating him.
His grown up son always ran away from home when he knew that his father wanted to marry a GRO. The family is now really torn apart and in a bad shape. From a happy family, now they are facing a huge family crisis.
My 2 Cents
First of all, it’s not my intention to humiliate this family. I just want to share that money is not everything. We still need money to survive, pay for car loan, education, credit card etc. But happiness is priceless. So there is no meaning for being rich but you can’t find peace in your family and spend quality time with your kids.
We must work hard in making money offline or online but make sure it is legal. For offline, don’t take bribe,because it is just like taking drugs. Once you have tasted it you will hunger for more. Seriously, it is contagious. For online job, please don’t do click fraud or exchange clicks for making money online with Google Adsense. Don’t trick people to buy your e-books/products by using false claim. This are the dos and don’t that you should remember.
In Islam, we called it rezeki barakah, if you earn it the right way it will benefit you in some ways and bring happiness to you. If you steal from other people, the money that you earn will cause you a lot of trouble. Just remember, what you give you will get back. 🙂 Make your life decision wisely.
A few months ago, Muridi Mohammad from Perlis was shocked when his money has been missing from his CIMB account.He received an SMS telling him he had won RM14,000 in an Akademi Fantasia 6 (AF6) competition. All he had to do to claim his winnings was to telephone the number given.
When he called, a man claiming to be from Astro asked for Muridi’s bank account number to deposit his winnings. Though he was hesitant, he did so. Fortunately he had enough sense to give an account with little money in it.
“I gave him the account my tenant uses to pay the rent.” The CIMB account had a balance of just over RM300.
Although this case is not new, but this poor Ustaz still want to try his luck. He just gave his account number just to see wether the scammer will deposit money or not. But it turns out, the scammer manage to withdraw money from his account two times. About an hour later he checked the account and found that two payments of RM120 had been made to “I-PYMT TO COLL”.
The BIG question here, how this criminal manage to withdraw money just using user account’s number. Really strange. I think this guys are really professional,even CIMB never release a statement about their system flaw.So just use thumb rule, if the offer is too good, then it is a scam. Don’t try to outsmart them. Maybe your are dealing with international criminal :). (more…)
[UPDATE : This Post is no longer VALID since Maybank has improved their Debit Card Service. Please refer my latest post regarding Maybank Debit Card. Thanks ]
I read in the net that Maybank launched a new Maybank Visa Debit Card, I said WOW! that would be great since I have a saving account with them.So, I am expecting free service, easy top up and more shopping at the Internet. I am glad more local banks start offering Visa debit card facility.
Steven Wong has made a summary about this new card :
To review whether this Visa debit card compatible to PayPal withdrawal, I spend sometimes to read on Maybank website, and here is the quick summary for your info:
- Maybank’s Group ATM in Singapore, Brunei and Philippines: RM2 each
- MEPS network: RM1 each
- Visa Plus Network: RM12 each
Existing Maybank ATM card holders can convert their cards with the one time cost of RM12. It is also the same cost for card replacement.
However, if you used up to 7 years (upon the expiry date, you will get the replacement at FOC).
Earn 1 TreatPoint for every RM3 purchases.
No annual fees, monthly interest rates or late charges.
So, since I am a Tune Card user plus have a Maybank saving account, I think it would be good if I compare this two card, rite ?
Below is a brief comparison of our very own Tune card Prepaid Visa Card vs Visa-branded debit card

I better stick with Tune Visa Prepaid Card, Why ? As you can see it is more flexible and Internet friendly. The most important thing is you can withdraw your PayPal money with it.:)
By the way, you can use Maybank ATM card in Petronas Petrol Pump and selected Supermarket so why Maybank want to promote this Debit card instead. I think their business idea for this Debit card is weak because you don’t want to go abroad only carrying debit card right?. At least you must have a spare credit card for emergency.
For me, debit card or Prepaid card is only suitable for Internet transaction. Buy ticket,hosting,domain and eBay online. So if maybank overlook this thing than their debit card will be nowhere compared to by Tune Prepaid Visa Card.
Several feedback that I got :
1. The question now is: Can Maybank Visa Debit cards compatible to PayPal withdrawal? I search on the web and try to find any review on that, unfortunately, there is no review so far. The closest was Uncle FL Sam on his withdrawal to Maybank Visa Credit Card.
So, I called up this morning to Maybank Customer Service to find out the details. The Maybank staff that I spoke to also not sure whether it is workable. After 20 minutes checking and waiting, she told me “NO” for PayPal withdrawal. steven wong
2. I try to add MBB Visa Debit card with Paypal, its not work. The following message will appear…
“This credit card has been denied by the bank that issued your credit card. For details on why your card was denied, please contact your credit card issuer’s customer service department. Or, you may want to try adding a different credit card.” zahidi
