Never Ending Scams

Readers...BEWARE...If  you receive this e-mail or something similar to this, don't even bother to read it, just DELETE IT. That's what I normally do after my embarrassing experience here. I thought this scam is no longer in existence but I was wrong. I'm sure you've read in the newspapers how bank customers are cheated by these scams, ie, obediently furnish the information required. In the end, their money in the bank vanish into thin air.

Saudara Jibeng,

Terima kasih atas cadangan itu. Untuk makluman, saya berkelulusan dari Institut Koperasi Auditor (ICA) setelah 3 tahun mengikuti pengajian tersebut pada pertengah 80'an. Tapi tak pernah mempraktikkanya. Kelulusan ini diiktiraf oleh Kerajaan dan saya mengambil MBA dari Ohio U berlandaskan kelayakan ini. Sekarang ini saya tak pasti sama ada ICA masih wujud atau sudah dimansuhkan.

Buat ketika ini, saya kurang berminat dengan sebarang perniagaan. Syukur dengan rahmat yang diberikanNya. Kalau sesiapa yang mahu pandangan seorang yang tiada pengalaman berniaga, saya akan cuba memberinya, Insya-Allah. Saya sebenarnya seorang yang terlalu konservatif...not a risk taker.
