Sex Shops are Digitizing, a Simple Man Was Scammed $400,000 N.T.

Those who fell are still just plain STUPID, no offense, but, feel free to take TONS, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The tricks of the skinning bars getting the simple men had been currently, duplicating online; a man who’d started playing online games after work, Tong fell prey to the claim of a female friend he’d met online that told him, “she’d taken money from the loan sharks, to pay for her mother’s all-too-high cancer treatment bills, and was now being forced to sell”, he’d handed $400,000N.T. to the woman, NO questions asked, hoping to get her out from the bad situation she claimed to be trapped by, until his mother reminded him, that, was when he realized, that he’d been scammed, he’d worked with the police, to help catch the woman, Hu who was picking up the cash.

The police said, the thirty-seven year-old man, Tong is an electrician and a plumber, after work, he’d gone home, and play online games, with little to NO social activities, he’d never had a girlfriend either; Tong’s mother found that her son started loaning his money to the “girlfriend” whom he’d only met just once, blamed his son, “You’re too dumb!”, the patrol officers tried to alleviate the tension between the mother and the son, said, “It should be best, that he finds a wife soon!”

The police found, that Tong had met a woman named, “Lulu” in an online game, and, “Lulu” called him up, almost every single day for the three months, and sent him a photograph of her, with very little clothes on; they’d started calling one another boy and girlfriend too, it’d made Tong fall deeply in love with her.

During the first half of last month, Lulu told him that her mother is hospitalized because of cancer, and that the fees for treatment was extremely high, for the sake of her mother, she’d taken out a $250,000N.T. loan from the loan sharks, and now, not only could she not manage to pay up what she’d borrowed, and she kept getting calls from the loan sharks on the interests that she’d owed them, and so she could only work in the bars, to pay up her debts, she’d begged him to loan her some money.

In order to help “Lulu” get out of the fire pits, Tong met up with her, and the very first time they’d met, he’d handed her $150,000N.T.; the scam ring sent Hu (age 37) as Lulu, to pick up the money, and Hu had even asked him, “Do you want to sleep with me?”

Then, Tong discovered, that Lulu is way too old, doesn’t look like she is in her twenties, and told her no, after they’d had lunch, they’d gone separate ways, but, afterwards, “Lulu” called Tong up again, said that she was once again, “pursued by the loan sharks”, and asked for a loan from him again.

This month, Lulu called Tong up once again, and Tong’s mother found out, and immediately notified the police.  Not long thereafter, Lulu called him up, to ask to borrow another $150,000N.T., Tong worked with the police, took along fake money to meet with her, and the police that were ambushing close by managed to arrest Hu who was there to pick up the money.  After Hu was arrested, she’d turned off her cell phone, but, Tong continued receiving calls from Lulu, that, was when he realized, that it was, all a scam.

Hu cried, said that after she divorced, she’d taken care of her two children all alone, and she still had to look after both her parents, but she had a prior in fraud, which makes it hard for her to get a job, that, was why she’d become a hooker for multiple years; a man Lee, who was her john, invited her to be a “driver”, and each time, she’d gotten $8,000N.T. for payment, which was four times MORE than she was making as a hooker, that, was why she’d put herself in harm’s way.  She said, that she didn’t make the calls, that before she went to pick up the cash, “Lee” had told her tricks, told her to claim to be “Lulu”, so she won’t bust her cover.

We still have this DUMB ass F-I-S-H who took the bait willingly, and, how many god DAMN times must this sort of SHIT happen, for all you LOSERS to know, that there’s NO such thing, and, because all you losers fall so god DAMN easily to those stupid S-O-B stories, that, is why women are used, as the bait!

A Man Tricked a Woman into Bed with Him, Took Her Bras Off, Said that He Was Giving Her a Massage

Uh, hello?  How DUMB can YOU ladies get anyways???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man with a masseur certification, Tseng set up shop to sell beds, and gave his customers free massages as a “follow-up” incentive; after a woman bought a bed, she’d returned to the sales mart for Tseng’s massages multiple times, Tseng used the excuse of needing to massage her body in the right way, took off her bras, and attempted to kiss her.  Tseng was sued for sexual harassment, he’d claimed, that he was bending over to pick up a piece of tissue and accidentally, grazed her breasts, but the D.A. didn’t believe his words, and still indicted him based off of laws against sexual harassments.

The D.A. investigated, that Tseng sold health beds, and he’d claimed to a female customer who bought a bed from him six months ago, that he can give her a free massage if she buys a bed from him; the female customer went for five to six massage sessions with him.

Last year in August, when the woman went again to get her free massages, Tseng told her that he wanted to teach her the right way to massage, wanted her to go with him to the small room next to the restrooms on the back of the place he’d worked, that it would be more intimate.  The woman didn’t question him, walked into the room, lay on the bed, and, Tseng took her bras off, and attempted to kiss her; the woman was so shocked she’d pushed him aside, and left the shop and called the police.

Tseng admitted to undoing the woman’s bras, claimed that it was to show her where the acupressure points were, and that the tissue he had fell from his hands, as he was bending down to pick it up, he’d accidentally touched her breasts, that it wasn’t intentional.

The D.A. believed, that in order to point to the right acupressure points, Tseng didn’t need to take the woman’s bras off or touch her body, and, the act of him getting down all of a sudden to pick up a dropped tissue is odd too, that his statements didn’t fit the norm; especially the female victim had described the process very clearly, she must’ve experienced it firsthand.  And, after the incident, Tseng had texted his apologies to her several times, and stated that he was willing to give her a bed for free, hoping that she wouldn’t take him to court, and from these, the D.A. believed that Tseng had broken the laws.

This just shows how you should NOT be putting yourselves in those positions, because there will always and forever BE losers like this one in the world, out of take advantage of us, and, this woman still fell prey to the cheap trick of getting some incentive, and hello, hello, hello?  There IS NO free lunch in the world!

A Man with Only an Elementary School Education Managed to Scam a Rich Businessman from a Namely University in the U.S. for Two Hundred Million Dollars

You have to wonder: H-O-W!, right???  From the Newspapers, translated…

A man, Chung Chen, with the priors in fraud claimed that he was a manager of a hedge fund, that he was in charge of a hundred billion U.S. dollars, then, he’d forged the documentations from the banks, and tricked a rich businessman, Lin, to invest with him, Lin got scammed for two hundred thousand million dollars, but because he felt ashamed and stupid, he’d kept it covered up, until two years later, but, he wasn’t able to get a single CENT that he’d lost back again.

The District Attorney’s Office in Shihlin indicted Chen on fraud, falsifying documentations, of the stocks, the female secretary, Hsiao, and accomplice, Wang were also, indicted as well.  The D.A. believed, that Chen and his scam ring claimed that they’d “wired the two hundred million dollars abroad, and don’t know where the money is anymore”, after they were caught, they showed bad attitude, and so, the D.A. asked the courts to give them all, heavier sentences.

The D.A. pointed out, that the seventy-year-old Chen only had an elementary school education, but, with his articulateness, he was able to persuade so many others in Taiwan and China.  And, as the Pacific Island of Palau became independent in 1994, Chen had falsified the ads of “Buying up properties in Palau”, when he’d gotten charged with fraud too.

The rich businessman, Lin graduated from a namely university in the U.S., he said, that as he’d worked in Jiangsu back in 2010, he’d met Chen, Chen falsely claimed that he was a hedge fund manager of the foundation left over from the revolutionary times, that he was in charge of overseeing an account of ten billion dollars U.S.D.

Later on, Chen provided for the falsified documentations of two foreign banks, with the total of over two hundred billion dollars in assets, and, all those present all chimed in on how he had that much money, and stated that the setting up of the roads and the freeways, as well as the transportation systems in Taiwan, was aided with his foundation, that, was why Lin had trusted him.

Chen then falsified that the hedge funds had a plan, that he’d only needed to invest in the projects, then, Lin could get the returns of twenty billion U.S. dollars in return, Lin thought it was for real, and actually wired the twenty million dollars to him.

Uh, how GULLIBLE CAN you be?  And this still just shows, how those get-rich-quick schemes are still appealing, to a TON of SUCKERS, and, it’s still all due to greed, that’s gotten this “investor” SCREWED!

Fake Diplomas, Issued on a Global Scale, by: D. Walsh

This, is what’s currently going on, and no, you still didn’t hear it from ME, from The New York Times that came with the Chinese papers today, written by: D. Walsh

Seen from the Internet, it is a vast education empire: hundreds of universities and high schools, with elegant names and smiling professors at sun-dappled American campuses.

Their websites, glossy and assured, offer online degrees in dozens of disciplines, like nursing and civil engineering.  There are glowing endorsement on the CNN iReport website, enthusiastic video testimonials, and State Department authentication certificates bearing the signature of John Kerry, the American secretary of state.

“We host one of the most renowned faculty in the world,” boasts a woman introduced in one promotional video as the head of law school.  “Come be a part of Newford University to soar the sky of excellence.”

Yet, this picture shimmers like a mirage.  The new reports are fabricated.  The professors are actors.  The university campuses exist in name only.  The degrees have no true accreditation.  The slick websites have toll-free American phone numbers and familiar-sounding names like Barkley and Columbiana.

Very little in this virtual academic realm, appearing to span at least 370 websites, is real—except for the tens of millions of dollars in revenue it gleans each year from many thousands of people around the world, all paid to a secretive Pakistani software company.

That company, Axact, operates from the port city of Karachi, where it employs over 2,000 people and calls itself Pakistan’s largest software explorer, with Silicon Valley-style employee perks like a swimming pool and yacht.

The heart of Axact’s business is the sales team—young and well-educated Pakistanis, fluent in English or Arabic, who work the phones with customers who have been drawn in by the websites.  They offer high school diplomas for $350 and doctoral degrees for $4,000.

Axact tailors its websites to appeal to customers in its principal markets, including the United States and oil-rich Persian Gulf countries.  One Saudi man spent over $400,000 on fake degrees and associate certificates, a former employee said.  Usually the sums are less startling, but still substantial.  One Egyptian man paid $12,000 last year for a doctorate in engineering technology from Nixon University and a certificate signed by Mr. Kerry.  His professional background was in advertising, he said.  But he was certain the documents were real.  “I really thought this was coming from America,” he said.  “It had so many foreigner stamps.  It was so impressive.”

Axact does sell some software applications.  But according former insiders, company records and a detailed analysis of its websites, Axact’s main business has been to take the centuries-old scam of selling fake academic degrees and turn it into an Internet-era scheme on a global scale.

As interest in online education is booming, the company is aggressively positioning its school and portal websites to appear prominently in online searches, luring potentials international customers.

At Axact’s headquarters, former employees say, telephone sales agents work in shifts around the clock.  Sometimes they cater to customers who clearly understand that they are buying a suspect instant degree for money.  But often the agents manipulate those seeking a real education, pushing them to enroll for coursework that never materializes, or assuring them that their life experiences are enough to earn them a diploma.

Revenues, estimated by former employees and fraud experts at several million dollars per month, are cycled through a network of offshore companies.  All the while, Axact’s role as the owner of this fake education empire remains obscured by proxy Internet services, combative legal tactics and a chronic lack of regulation in Pakistan.

“Customers think it’s a university, but it’s not,” said Yasir Jashaid, who left Axact in October.  “It’s all about the money.”

In a letter to The Times’s initial reporting on the matter, the Pakistani government ordered an investigation.  The company’s offices in Karachi and Islamabad were shut down as investigators seized computers and files and detained some people for questioning.

In an interview in November 2013 about Pakistan’s media sector, Axact’s founder and chief executive, Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh, described Axact as an “I.T. and I.T. network services company” that serves many small and medium-sized businesses.  “On a daily basis we make thousands of projects.  There’s a long client list,” he said, but declined to name those clients.

The proliferation of Internet-based degree schemes has raised concerns about the use of fake diplomas in immigration fraud and about dangers they may post to public safety.  Some have been caught.  In 2007, a British court jailed Gene Morrison, a fake police criminologist who claimed to have degree certificates from Axact-owned Rochville Unversity.  The police had to re-examine seven hundred cases Mr. Morrison had worked on.  “It looked easier than going to a real university,” Mr. Morrison said during his trial.

In the Middle East, Axact has sold aeronautical degrees to airline employees and medical degrees to hospital workers.  One nurse at a hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, admitted to spending $600,000 on an Axact-issued medical degree to secure a promotion.

In Pakistan, Mr. Shaikh portrays himself as a self-made tycoon and claims to donate sixty-five percent of Axact’s revenues to charity.  Last year, he announced a plan to educate ten million Pakistani children by 2019.  He said on the company’s website that he wanted to become “the richest man on the planet.”

He is working to become Pakistan’s most influential media mogul.  Axact has been building a broadcast studio and aggressively recruiting prominent journalist for Bol, a television and newspaper group scheduled to start this year.

When reporters for The Times contacted twelve Axat-run education websites, representatives claimed to be based in the United States, denied any connection to Axact or hung up immediately.  Two days after The Times first published its account, phone lines at some websites were not being answered.

“Hands down, this is probably the largest operation we’ve ever seen,” said Allen Ezell, a retired F.B.I. agent who has been investigating Axact.  “It’s a breathtaking scam.”

And, do you want to know W-H-Y, there are still, so many god DAMN S-U-C-K-E-R-S who are still falling for this sort of shit?  It’s still BASIC human nature, y’all, because we all want to NOT work as hard, and still get the EXACT same amount of rewards that we are to receive, as if we’d worked OUR asses off for it, and which, is still why, this sort of SCAMS can operate in this world, it’s all because of human nature, that’s aiding and abetting to the scam artists.

Picking Out a Kindergarten, Don’t Be Mythical About All-English Institutions

We still ALL want our kids, to start off, with that MUCH-NEEDED COMPETITIVE edge, so this, is where the MYTHS come in, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

From the months of April to August, is the registration trend of the kindergartens, the National Teachers’ Guild yesterday suggested to the parents on the keys to picking out a good kindergarten using the following guidelines: no cramming on reading, writing, OR math; and that the qualities of the teachers shouldn’t be those newly graduated teaching department students; to NOT become superstitious about the foreign-born instructors, without the teaching certificates.

The All-Educational Organization’s department manager, Chang stated, that after the implementations of the new bill of early childhood education and care had set in, the realm of the early childhood education is slowly changing, the publicly funded kindergartens and the private kindergartens are the primary choices of the parents’; but, a lot of parents are still, WAY too superstitious on English education, and, there was this trend of parents, lining up outside those dual-language academies, to sign their children up.

The assistant director of the All-Education Organization, Yen said, that the chairs in the kindergarten facilities, if they were set up in rows like they are in elementary schools, that means that the children were being force fed the lessons, that it’s best, to have the chairs set up in groups, or learning sessions in each of the corners of the classrooms, to get the children to participate in their learning processes actively; and, there must be enough outdoors unit, in case the younger children don’t get enough time to exercise.

Yen reminded the parents, that if the kindergarten classrooms were decorated very well, but, the decorations aren’t related to the creations of children, or has anything to do with the lessons, then, the teachers were spending too much time on classroom decorations, along with other odds and ends activities, and not having enough time, to socialize or to interact with the children.

He’d stressed, that the first three to five years of a kindergarten instructors’ careers are spent on adapting, and discovering the work environment, and, if the entire kindergarten has teachers who’d only been teaching for no more than three years, then, it would mean, that the fluidity of the instructors is way too high; the kindergartens are banned from hiring foreign teachers by law, but, the kindergartens would set themselves up as cram schools, and that the foreign teachers may lack experiences in working with children in the earlier years, so, don’t blindly believe the words of the kindergartens.

These, are the few guidelines, that the papers had summed up, in choosing a kindergarten for the younger generations, but, because it is, a INTERNATIONAL world that these kids had come into, so, naturally, a TON of the parents would still fall for the advertisements of “All-English” education, and, by believing in getting a head start in another language is good for my kid, the kids still ended up, suffering, plus, aren’t the earlier years of childhood supposed to be play-oriented???  Uh, YEAH, so parents, STOP believing what those god DAMN institutions are selling you, but, because you still ALL want your kids to have that head start on life, and, you LACKED the foresight, that your kids may drop DEAD (b/c of how hard they were pushed!!!), way before they’re even ABLE to see the finishing lines.

If It’s His Ex-Girlfriend, Then, Why Must He Marry Her?

Troubled???  A Q&A, translated…

Q: Ms. C wrote…

Had allowed love to get to her head, couldn’t see the truth, Ms. C sent me a letter, she said, “the boyfriend doesn’t love ‘his current girlfriend’ (she’d especially labeled her as an ex-girlfriend); but his family forced him to marry her, because she’d lived with the family for over twelve years now, and, he must shoulder the responsibilities toward her.  They’d even told him, if after they’d married, and realized, that they still couldn’t get along, then, they can file for divorce, but, he just, can’t abandon her now.  If he doesn’t marry that ex of his, then, the boyfriend’s family threatened to cut him off, and wouldn’t allow him back into their household.”

C said, that her boyfriend is in love with another girl—it’s Ms. C.  she said, that her boyfriend and her are not only really much in love with one another, she’d kept waiting for him, to plan out their lives together.

And now, they’re “in waiting”, as the issues with the ex-girlfriend just couldn’t get resolved.  She wanted to know how she can resolve the stresses of her boyfriend’s family toward them, would his family really force them to split up?

My Advice

From Ms. C’s letter, I can understand, some unspoken truths, which was: her boyfriend was originally with his ex, or maybe, he’d gotten tired about being with her (or maybe, it’s normal), the boyfriend cheated with C, and, thought about, that he’d had to actually get married to C.

Whether it be a new love, or an old flame, or maybe, he’s just stalling, he is irresponsible, without the strengths, stamina, doesn’t want to be the bad guy who brings up the break up, so, he’d used his own family as a shield, and blamed it on them, to stall for awhile, then, he will used a more rash reason that’s made up by himself, “to break his own heart” and break up with C.  C, who is either too young, too naïve, or blinded by love, if she doesn’t wake up soon, maybe, she’d gobbled all his lies right up, and, became a “spare”, who’s waiting for her boyfriend to marry his girlfriend, until they’re divorced.

Simply stated, after the boyfriend had cheated and had his fun, he will still end up, marrying his “ex-girlfriend”, so, DON’T trust him!

And this, is where the trouble is, the woman is still too infatuated with the man, and she will gobble up ALL those LIES he’d sold her on, and, chances are, that she probably will STAY DORMANT, until it’s WAY too late, until the “ex-girlfriend” who’d become her “boyfriend’s” WIFE, and found out about them, and SUED, and, this woman still doesn’t HAVE a clue, because she’s way too BLINDED by L-O-V-E!
