MLM on Mobile!
Monday, August 15, 2005


Captain's Log Stardate -318621.17

Last May, may sinulat ako tungkol sa pagevolve ng MLM schemes sa internet... Ngayon mobile na! Grabe! Hindi na ma-"rich". May nabasa kasi akong article sa blog ni ka edong... tentenenen... MLM on Mobile and Email! (teka.. suspect pa lang na MLM). It's MobileCash or whatever na under sa business entity na WebVentures Philippines. Kailangan mo ng G-Cash or Smart Money to join.

Medyo nagpapanting ang tenga ko pag nakakarinig ako ng mga Pyramid schemes or tawag nga nila ngayong Multi-Level Marketing o MLM. Chineck ko yung website na nilagay ni ka edong sa blog nya and guess what? Nakita ko na naman ang aming favorite tagline nila Karlo at Andrew... ACHIEVE FINANCIAL FREEDOM! HAHAHAHA! YEBA!

Pinagana ko na naman ang aking stalker side. Una kong ginawa ay nag-whois ng domain at eto ang information na nakita ko:

Sumunod kong hinanap ay ang mga business names and company registration nila sa SEC and DTI... wala.. hmm...

Sinubukan kong i-search sa Google ang name ng registrant ng domain at may nakita akong ad nya sa Cebu Classifieds (click picture to enlarge):

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Then hindi pa ako nacontento... hinanap ko sa friendster yung email address nya... Hehehe. Hometown Zamboanga... :D Wala lang...

Ok, back to Earth. How can you possibbly earn millions in an instant sa scam este business na ito kung ang maximum credit na pwede sa G-Cash ay P10,000 and P50,000 naman sa Smart Money?? Last week nung nakipag-meet ako sa head ng G-Xchange, sinabi nyang pwedeng taasan ang limit pero kailangang merchant account na yung SIM mo at napakaraming requirements. So medyo malabo na yang merchant account sa "ordinary Philippine madlang people... " So kailangang everytime magpa en-cash ka ng G-Cash mo? Or hindi na kailangan kasi mabagal lang talaga ang pasok ng pera or wala talaga? Questions, questions...

Another intriguing feature of their site eh yung mga affiliate links. Kung mayaman ka na (dahil sa claims ng business), hindi mo na kailangan maglagay ng mga AdSense-like links sa site mo. Hindi lang isa yung affiliate link... ang dami! Dinaig pa yung 2-3 Google Adsense ng blog ko. "Premature ejaculation??? Click this???" WTF?! Click picture below to enlarge:

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Sabagay hindi ko pa nababasa yung ebook nila, kaya ka edong, send away! Ika nga ni ka edong, let's give them the benefit of the doubt. Teka, kayo na lang. Basta ako wala ng doubt-doubt. Bias. HAHAHA!

ang mga tao na naniniwala sa MLM ay bunch of losers =P

whoa! ayos, a! you did (some of) your homework. Ako, di ako sinipag mag-sleuth.

I therefore conclude that there *are* *real* people (not necessarily evil) who spend their time and energy doing this. Not necessarily to fool people, but perhaps to just earn money.

no reply yet from my email sender.

I'll label this as a scam. A rather hi-tech scam using m-commerce.

On the bright side, at least they are "evangelizing" people about m-commerce. On the dark side nga lang, baka ma-takot ang mga tao sa m-commerce dahil diyan sa MLM. tsk tsk tsk...

thanks for the link, ka jepoy!

Ditto karlo, siopao, and edong. MLM is bad for us and m-commerce.

Hehe, nakaganti na tayo. Meron akong isang project na MLM software. Hinayaan ko 50% lang ang natapos :))

hmmmm... a wave of misconceptions here. "MLM" and "Networking" are not really bad per se, but they seem to be associated with "Pyramiding" (i.e Multitel), which is the one that's really a scam.

Try googling for the "Ponzi scam", I reckon this is the business model of MobileCashPhilippines.

a very thin line separates them... very thin... very very very thin...

Has anybody heard of Amador Pastrana, he is a fellow Filipino (from Pangasinan) who is reported to have made US$ 6 Billion in eight years? He is also branded as the KING of Boiler Room operations (a.k.a. SCAM)

The PCIJ report can be found here: http://www.crimes-of-persuasion.com/Players/pastrana_amador.htm

eventhough he made money with that, ndi ba sha natatakot na ung soul nya may destination na *isip isip*, kasi alam mo nang mali gagawin mo pa, madami kang tatapakan na tao tapos u still pursue na manloko, para lang maka earn ng pera nga mga tao.... hay... madaling mabulag mga pinoy talaga, they always want the easy way out.......
