Privatnost, Put, Novac

Ne sviđa mi se zaduženjem narudžbe. Nikad nisam volio ideju da je drugi entitet mogu, po volji, uzeti gotovo bilo koji iznos od mog novca (dobro … god je dostupan). Kolega je istaknuo problem s MTN bi bio izbjegnut da sam bio koristeći debitnu poredak. Možda “pogodnost” faktor nije tako loša stvar.

Pretpostavljam pretposljednji pitanje ovdje je da li ili ne želite praktičnost i može vjerovati institucije (u ovom slučaju sa svojim novcem) – ili ako ih ne može vjerovati i da su spremni odreći da praktičnost. U mom slučaju, iako sam još uvijek pitanje praktičnost, Naučio sam na teži način s MTN da dvostruko može biti nezgodno da se vaše povezani svijet sveden na “udaljenom otoku” status. Gotovo svatko danas ide s faktorom praktičnost.

Praktičnost

S druge strane, Sada je davno, Imao sam spor s Planet Fitness gdje praktičnost je dvosjekli mač. Ja prijavili svoje poslovne prakse Komisiji pritužbi potrošača (budući reorganizirao kao Nacionalno povjerenstvo potrošača) i nikada nije dobio povratnu informaciju od njih. Suština problema je da Planet Fitness prodaja Agent mi je lagao i prijatelja kako bi dobili više Komisije / novca iz džepa.

Ja sam Otkriće Vitality članica koja daje mnoge prednosti, uključujući smanjene stope na premium brandova – govore zdravstvena naravno, kao Discovery je medicinska pomoć / zdravstveno osiguranje usluga. Staviti ga jednostavno, Otkriće je strašan. Vitalnost je prednosti pokrivaju teretana članstava što dodatno uključuje Planet Fitness. Još uvijek morati platiti nešto, mali znak sorti, do otkrića, za članstvo u gym. Ali, uostalom, Oni žele da budem zdrav, tako da ne smeta footing najveći dio računa. Ali, očigledno, to znači Planet Fitness’ prodajnih agenata ne dobijete proviziju!

Dakle, ono što čini ovaj rezultat u? Rezultat je da je PF u prodajni agent mi je dao napuhana brojka za “Vitalnost-temelji” članstvo. Lagao. On je tada mi se prijavite na točkasta linija za napuhane cijene A. “redoviti” članstvo (da, to je zapravo više nego čak redovito članstvo u će imati cijene), završio oko 4 i 5 puta koliko Vitality bazi članstva.

Epiphanies

Neko vrijeme u 2011 Napokon sam wisened do troškova sam se trebali plaćati. Otkriće Siguran sam da ne bi bilo previše sretan zbog ovog fijaska. Razgovarao sam s upraviteljem u teretani, a ja sam bio uvjeren da se cijeli ugovor će biti otpisan. Ja nisam jedan za nasilje … osim ako njegova za sport … u Octagon … ali nakon mog 5. posjeta Manager pitati zašto Debitne Narudžbe su još uvijek događa, on mi je rekao da je bio iznenađen sam nije donio oružje sa mnom za posjet. Nakon još nekoliko posjeta, Upravitelj je zapravo napustio Planet Fitness i objasnio mi da je “ugovor” bio je između mene i sjedište, te da lokalne teretane, očito operacija franšize stilu, je malo ne reći o je li ili nije mogao biti otkazan. Ako ured je odbio, tvrd sreća.

Do ovog trenutka sam ga izgubio. Imao sam moj bankovni stavio zaustaviti na teret narudžbi. To je bio veliki schlep: Morao sam kontaktirati banku svaki mjesec jer bi opisi trajni nalog promijeniti ikada tako nešto. Također me koštati malo svakih par mjeseci “ponovo postaviti” blokiranje usluga. Ja ne mogu pomoći, ali mislim da je bankarski sustav podržava regularni izrazi ali osoblje ne moraju nužno znati kako ga koristiti.

Tehnički Još uvijek čekam na CCC bi dobili natrag na mene (nikada nije dogodilo – i naravno da su ponovno organizirali kao što je spomenuto kako je slučaj vjerojatno pao kroz pukotine). Naravno, od tog trenutka PF također htjeli mi blokirali zbog neplaćanja!

Neočekivano heroj

Slučajan spomen na pitanje na Discovery (Mislim da ih nazvao sam o stomatolog posjeta) rezultiralo povratni jednog od otkrića agenata. Oni su tada me je zamolio da opiše problem, detaljno i pismeno, kako bi se bolje objasniti iz moje perspektive što se doista dogodilo. Sam dužan. Ispada da sam u pravu za njih ne bude “presretni” o tome. U stvari oni stvarno nije to sviđa. Oko tri tjedna kasnije, Planet Fitness me vraćena u cijelosti za sve novca koji su ikad bili plaćeni za njih.

Otkriće je strašan. 🙂

Have we here a Facebook Stalker?!

Of great consideration to online privacy are facebook stalkers. If a stalker randomly manages to add a few of your friends and you have your Profile Privacy Settings allowingFriends of Friendsto see everything then your stalker effectively has access to your profile even without having added you.

I’ve now adjusted my privacy settings more strictly and I’ve used theSee how a friend sees your profile:” tool to get an idea of how it changes things.

MyBasicInformation I had available toFriends of Friends”. This includesGender, Birthday, Hometown, Political and Religious Views and Relationship Statusaccording to Facebook’s description. You might think it fair that friends of your friends have an idea of how you roll.

But can you trust all your friends anti-stalker spidey-senses?

I think NOT.

I previously had it that friends of friends can see my photos and videos but not much else. I’m thinking of changing that now too.

But wait, there’s More!

Further to this, we should be vigilant offakeFacebook profiles. Stalkers are usually apt enough to create more than one account with fake names. If you block one they create another and attempt to get a glance at your profile once more. I’ve created a friend group calledPrivacy Pls”. This group is limited from being able to see anything other than a very basic page. Thisbasicview is akin to when you first started using Facebook and didn’t know you could add lots of stuff in there (stuff you later realised you didn’t want anyway).

If someone adds me and I’m not absolutely sure who it is, I add them to myPrivacy Plsgroup. Also if someone adds me and I don’t want to offend them by ignoring their invite I’ll rather add them to this group. Perhaps you feel you have a pervy boss for example.

But Wait! There’s Moreand this time you can do it TOO!

To do this for yourself, go to your Friends page, klik “Create New List”, and name it something appropriate – “Privacy Plsin my case. Add the appropriate friends to this list now or add any futuresuspectfriends to the group.

Next, go to the Profile Privacy Settings page. Underneath each section you will find aEdit Custom Settings” Gumb. Click the first one and, at the bottom of the dialog that pops up, you will findExcept these people”. Add yourPrivacy Plsgroup here. Do the same for all the sections you don’t want them to see. Kad je učinio, use thefriend’s viewtool to confirm what is made available to persons on that list.

And the Friend-of-Friend Stalker?

To prevent yourFriend-of-FriendStalker from being able to see your profile, do yourself a favour and think very critically about what you want potential stalkers to be able to see. Now go change those Privacy Settings toOnly Friends”.

For the Photo Crazy

Check up on your Photo Album Privacy settings. This is set up much the same as your profile settings. Consider carefully who you want to be able to see which photo albums and adjust the permissions appropriately!

Your Personal Contact Information

posljednje, check up on your Contact Information: Kliknite “Profilebutton towards the top left of the Facebook page to get to your profile. Then click on theInfotab within your profile. When you mouseover the Contact Information section you will see anEditlink pop up on the right. Click this button to start editing your details.

Next to each item you will find alockicon. Click this lock to define further permissions for which friends are able to see the items. You’ve never give your address and phone details to a dodgy stranger you meet on the street. Why do we then go and give it away to everyone on the Internet. I recommend the following:

  • AllowNo one” na:
    • email address
  • AllowOnly Friends” na:
    • IM Screen Names
  • Remove completely or allowNo one” na:
    • mobile phone number
    • landline number
  • Limit the following:
    • address detailsgive your area or suburbbut NOT your full address

Hopefully we don’t all have to learn our lessons the hard way.

P.S. (especially to the guys and gals who have asked) I’ve been extremely busy these last couple of weeks. I have a lot of unedited content I’m hoping to make publishable very soon!

Who Rules?! Who Made this Awesome Image?!

Who Rules?!

When an artist has released his work (even as Creative Commons) and the IPTC / EXIF data is no longer in the image, how do you find out who the original artist is? All I have here is a difficult-to-read signature. 🙁

I’m looking at the South African banking system (partly a result of watching the Zeitgeistdocumentary”) i, after finding my bank implicated most with regards to the SA-Banking Competition Commission wikileaks scandal, I’m putting serious consideration into switching banks.

What ethical banks are out there right now? I’ve even looked into Sharia (Islamic) banking because of their strict ethics laws but even there I’m looking at even more unknowns. I’m not Islamic and I have nothing against funding pork-related activities.

On that note, do you know if your bank has a code of ethics? If they’re public, where can we see these ethics codes?

Tell me about service levels I haven’t heard of before and which bank you believe deserves to handle my money.

I think the Internet is a scary place. Da, me. Some days I find myself horrified to find the lowliest of criminal bastards trying to steal our livelihoods.

Da, people, there are criminals out there and they want your money or they want to use you to make money. What’s even more scary is the lengths to which they are willing to go, even risking YOU. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

I received an email saying that I was being offered a job as aRegional Assistant” i, though the details weren’t given, the email suggested that it was a legitimate opportunity. I replied asking about where they’d received my details and also about what they would require of me.

Being the skeptic I am, I thought I could spot scammers a mile away. How fortunate that I can still laugh at the idea.

A few hours later, they replied indicating that I’d soon receive further instructions. They’dprobablybeen referred to me by a friend and they had a pile of referrals and so couldn’t specify which friend had recommended me. I waited patiently and left it to the back of my mind. “They’ve probably found a good candidate already and I’ve lost out”, I thought. “How nice that a friend might refer me. Obviously I’m Awesome.” (and daft :-/)

So later on, I receive my email with myfurther instructions”. This is where I finally realised that I was dealing with scammers:

Hi. We’d like to start a trial task. Our customer will make a bank transfer to you this week. Please go to our site <site omitted> to submit the banking details where the transfer will go to. Once we’ve established a good transaction history, you will receive between 2-3 transfers per week (amounts of about R10 000 each except the first trial transfers).
Please confirm that you can start. We don’t send any transfers to your account until we receive confirmation from you.
On Monday you will receive notification, detailed information and instructions regarding the transfers. Thank you and have a lovely weekend.

Say what??? I checked out the web site in question and, without a doubt, this is a money laundering scheme done by professionals. They know what they’re doing and they probably launder millions every month. What’s more is that, inevitably, they will screw you over and get the cops to arrest YOU. These criminals can leave evidence behind implicating you even if all you’ve done is diligently moved money from one place to anotherand kept a small percentage for yourself. 😛

Money laundering is where illegitimate money (stolen, probably) is transferred via third parties to appear more legitimate. You’re an accessory to the crime and, even worse, you’re even likely to be the victim of it. Recognise when an opportunity is too good to be true. I was fooled for a short while. Next up, given that a victim might give out a lot of personal details, the scammers might steal your identity and start to implicate you in fraudulent activities without you ever having done a thing.

If you happen to have already given any details such as the above where they wanted my banking details, contact your bank and inform them of the situation. They will give you the best possible advice on what to do next. If you’ve already responded to the mail but haven’t yet already given them the information they want, don’t reply any further. I’d also suggest calling your local police for further advice.
