    Save Telephone Bill with VOIPBuster

    Posted by CJCM on 30th November 2006

    VoipBusterDo you use Skype for your telephony requirements? Now you have another option for a Voip-based telephony services.

    VoipBuster works very much like Skype. You can make calls to your friends and relatives for free if both ends are using VoipBuster. You can also buy some credits and make calls to other mobile or fixed phones.

    What makes VoipBuster different from Skype is that, you can call fixed phones in designated countries for FREE for 120 days from the day you top up your credit for 10 Euros. How’s that for a saving? Better still, your credit will never expire. So if you are running out of 120 days free calls, you top up another 10 Euros and get another 120 days of free calls to any fixed phones in those designated countries.

    But I guess you have to make use the credits somehow, right. Just use it for calling other mobile numbers or fixed numbers in those countries not covered for 120 days free calls. The charge is cheap too, if not cheaper than Skype in certain cases.

    Here is my saving calculations, applicable for Malaysian subscribers using Streamyx broadband connection only:

    Before I subscribe to VOIPBuster
    Streamyx package MYR 66 per month
    Fixed phone call charges MYR 80 per month (Approximate)
    Total monthly charges MYR 146 per month

    After I subscribed to VOIPBuster
    Streamyx package MYR 66 per month
    Fixed phones call charges free
    VoipBuster credit MYR 16 per month (Approximate, based on 10 Euros for 3 months)
    Total monthly charges MYR 82 per month

    Saving MYR 64 per month (about 43%)

    Not bad right? What are you waiting for?
    Country list

    If your country is listed above, you are eligible for free calls to fixed phones. Get VoipBuster now.

    PS3 Email for Sale at eBay - Looks Like a Scam to Me

    Posted by CJCM on 25th November 2006

    PS3 email for sale at eBay

    If not a scam, then it is clearly an attempt to deceive eBay buyers.

    The screen shot shows like the seller is selling PS3 for USD455 (at the time of this posting). But scroll down the description page, and you will see “note: you are not bidding on an actual ps3, you’re only bidding on an e-mail address (ps3wantonenow@gmail.com), winning bidder will receive password”.

    PS3 email for sale at eBay

    I am not sure if eBay is aware of this. This is totally unacceptable as the ads is very deceiving. I wouldn’t buy anything from this cunning eBay seller. But if you still want to buy, what the heck… click here.

    AGLOCO - Own the Internet

    Posted by CJCM on 24th November 2006

    AGLOCO

    I am not sure if you have heard of AGLOCO. With the internet at work, I am not surprised if a lot of you may already have been told about ‘Owning the Internet’.

    What is it?
    AGLOCO is a company that pays you to surf the web. But that company is actually owned by you. How is that? You joined AGLOCO for free, download a Viewbar and install it on your PC and continue surfing as usual. You can earn credit hours up to 5 hours. AGLOCO is currently in the process of being listed in a stock exchange. So when it does, you can convert your credit hours into shares, which if course has cash values. So thats how in principal yopu can earn money wioth AGLOGO.

    Who is behind AGLOCO?
    AGLOCO is the brainchild of Carl Anderson, an AllAdvantage co-founder and now a hedge-fund manager, and Dave Pidwell, a venture partner at Alloy Partners and an early investor of AllAdvantage. There are 8-founding members of AGLOCO altogether, all graduated from Stanford MBA business school.

    How Much Do I Get Paid?
    As I have said, currently, you can only earn credit hours for surfing with the Viewbar active. If it is not active or minimized, you dont earn credit hours. How much you can earn depends how much credit hours you have converted to shares which of course depend also on the value of the shares at any particular time you are evaluating your worth.

    Can I Start Earning Credit Hours Now?
    Unfortunately NO. The Viewbar is at the beta testing stage by some volunteers. Once it is ready, AGLOCO will inform all members and the Viewbar will be ready for download.

    So No Viewbar Yet, What The Heck Am I Doing?
    Making money on the internet is about getting as many people as possible to join you. Build up your down lines. Thats what you do. You refer to as many people as possible to join under your referral links. Your referrals in turn refer their friends to join. You will earn credit hours for referring up to 5 levels deep, but you can go as wide as you can. So when the Viewbar is ready, you are also ready to maximize your earning. If you dont start referring now. others will. By the time you want to do it, maybe almost everybody interested is already part of AGLOCO. You dont want to be in that position, do you?

    Is This Pyramid Scheme?
    Structure wise, yes. But that is where the similarity ends. Pyramid schemes ask people to pay money to be shared by people at the upper level. AGLOCO doesn’t ask you to pay a single cents. Instead it pays you, as a shareholder of the company.

    How Does AGLOCO Make Money?
    AGLOCO makes money by selling advertising on the Viewbar. The Viewbar collects information about your surfing behaviour, and deliver targeted advertisements that you may be interested in.

    Is This Spyware?
    I’d say anything that analyses your surfing habit is spyware..but with your consent. If you dont consent, don’t join AGLOCO. Is that simple. However, if you consent, but you get paid for it in cash and shares. But remember, Google also delivers targeted ads based on what you are surfing. Do you consent? Do you consider that spying? You decide.

    How Do I Get Started.
    You can join AGLOCO by following this referral link. Remember..AGLOCO is a referral link. So the link already has my referral ID. When you joined, you will have your own ID which you can use to refer your friends. If for any reason you have to enter referral ID manually, my referral ID is BBBB6503.
    You can read more info about AGLOCO once you click the link above.

    Still Not Convinced?
    Well I only have these to say…. If the system works, which I and lots of other people (minus the sceptical ones), you have everything to gain, but if it doesn’t, you have nothing to loose.
    You can read more about AGLOCO here.

    Good luck.

    Phishing Warning at RahsiaMLM is a False Alarm.

    Posted by CJCM on 23rd November 2006

    Zamri Nanyan I have highlighted in my previous posting about the phishing warning message at Zamri Nayan’s RahsiaMLM.com

    After some investigation by Zamri, it is quite evident that the message is a false alarm caused by IE, for reasons only known (…maybe unknown) to Bill Gate’s technical team…. congratulation to you guys at Redmont :)

    The hypothesis is even more credible with Zamri’s finding that some one else also faced the same problem.

    In Zamri’s latest comment in my original posting, here is what he has to say:

    Only IE7 is flagging this false error. The lower version
    of IE and Firefox do not have this error.

    So, if anyone wants to buy the ebook, they don’t have
    to worry about the phishing message, and it’s OK to use
    IE7 too because the order process is on a third party,
    secure payment processor.

    If anyone decides to request for the free gifts I have for
    my web visitors, they can fill up the form on the website.
    I will then email them the download page for the gifts.

    In short, ignore the false message.

    So I hope we can close this matter and get on with our lives. For those involved in Internet Marketing and MLM, life goes on as usual. Zamri’s offer still stand for those who are interested to get a copy of the excellent eBook produced by one of the greatest MLM guru Tom “Big Al” Schreiter, which had been transalated by Zamri, specially for the Malaysian MLM practicioners.

    I have just purchased the eBook my self for the following reasons:

    1. To prove my confidence that security at RahsiaMLM.comn is not compromised in anyway.
    (I paid via Maybank 2u.com)
    2. To further encourage internet enterpreunership among Malaysian internet marketers
    (Note I am not an Internet Marketer yet, but I could be on my way… :) But I sure am
    a semi-pro blogger)
    3. To learn about MLM from one of the greatest MLM guru ever existed on earth.

    So point your browser to RahsiaMLM.com and get the greatest MLM secret eBook ever produced before the price goes up. There are also a few bonus ebooks as gift to go with your eBook purchase. You get really good deal with Zamri’s eBook. If you don’t believe me, go and find out how much the original book would cost you, and it is in USD.

    Happy selling…!
    I am off to read the eBook!
    C U around!

    RahsiaMLM.com Suspected Phishing Site

    Posted by CJCM on 22nd November 2006

    RahsiaMLM.com Suspected Phishing Site

    I was just at Gobala Krishnan’s website and he was talking about Zamri Nanyan’s latest eBook translation project. Naturally I was interested to find out more. When I click the link to RahsiaMLM.com, my IE browser (which I have phishing filter ON) suddenly shows that the site is suspected as a phishing site. I am not sure whether this is true or not.

    I don’t believe this is true. Zamri Nanyan is a well known and respected Internet Marketer in Malaysia, I don’t think he is into this kind of thing. It must have an error by the IE browser. I hope Zamri can confirm this ASAP to avoid further damage to his reputation.

    The message asked to report whether or not this is a phishing website, but I didn’t do anything. I should let Zamri confirm that and report it himself.

    Does anyone else face the same problem? Please provide your input.. TQ
