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.

I received an email from Adsense Team warning me about one of my site that have mature content. They want me to check it and to remove my adsense ad on that site. They gave me 3 days to do it. This is quite scary since my adsense is this close to get banned and this is their second warning that related to mature content.
I was not aware about the site since its been quite some time I check and monitor the proxy site. Thank God, its happen to my rarely use site. What happened if someone hack this site. That would be scary. I would need a professional help then 🙂
I would like to thanks Adsense Team for notifying this issue to me and gave me a second chance. Can you imagine if they immediately suspend my account. That would be a nightmare. Next time, I would be extra careful and will monitor all my site for sure.
I already blog about Churp2 and cashed out my 1st cheque with Churp2. Good news, I already reach my 2nd RM 100 this month. I think my Churp2 make more money than my NuffNang. Below is some presentation for you to understand concept of Churp2.
I don’t know whetver I should share about this or not because last time I remember, I make a lot of money with NuffNang. Nowdays, when so many people join Nuffnang, its really hard to get RM50 in a month hehehe.
But since I have nothing to post about, maybe sharing this info about cash reward contest is at least I can do. Its called Spread the Love and Get Rewarded.
Simple, if you have a twitter account and minimum of 25 follower, then you can make money with Churp2. But its still up to you, you can join if you want. If you think its really hard to compose 140 words campaign with simple keywords and lazy to tweet then I would have no problem with that.
Because I can make money with more campaign yehaaaaa!. But if you decide to join…..mmm really..have you think really hard about it. Maybe you need some time, fresh air and clear mind haha. Ok Ok..just use this link to join ok 🙂

Thank you for Your Understanding and support
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.
WHAT IS PHISHING ?
In the field of computer security, phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication
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.
