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. 🙂

Čini se da je, u beskrajnoj mudrosti, Google imaju sigurnosne značajke koje se mogu blokirati aplikaciju iz pristupa ili koristi svoj Google račun. Ja mogu vidjeti kako to može biti problem za Googleove korisnike, posebno njihova GTalk i Gmail Korisnici. U mom slučaju to je bio Pidgin imaju problem s Brbljati usluga (koja je tehnički dio gtalk). Našao sam rješenje nakon malo kopanje. Bio sam iznenađen koliko je star problem bio i koliko dugo ova značajka je postojala!

Da biste otključali račun i dobiti svoj aplikacija online, koristiti Googleov Captcha stranicu ovdje.

If you ever find yourself updating a single application in Arch Linux (a very bad idea, btw) and it upgrades readline you might end up seeing an error along the lines of:
/bin/bash: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Hopefully you still have a bash prompt open and you haven’t closed them all. If you still can, immediately run the following:
pacman -S bash
else you won’t be able to run bash any more because bash would still be linking to the old version of readline.

Također, in future, don’t run
pacman -Sy application
(python in my case)
instead, run:
pacman -Syu
which will ensure that all applications are upgraded.

Personally, I think that bash should have had a dependency set saying that it required the old specific version of readline and the same for the new bash, requiring the new version of readline. Regardless, rather play it safe. 😉

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.

Who’d have thought that something as silly as Choqok trying to automatically log into Twitter might get me temporarily locked out?

Oh well. I’m patient.

Tried to log in too many times?

We've temporarily locked your account after too many failed attempts to sign in. Please chillax for a few, then try again.
