Nowadays scammers are getting more and more real.
Look at this message that I received from “Paypal”.
I was wondering how come my Paypal is sending money when I didn’t initiate it and they are sending it from my bank account.
So I immediately use another computer and login to my Paypal to check and I didn’t see anything unusually there.
Looks like this is a scammer’s email.
Remember, if you receive any emails that you have any doubt with…
DON’T EVER CLICK ON ANY LINK IN THE EMAIL.
I have received a lot of emails from Paypal, Banks and even my autoresponder telling me to verify my accounts or to login.
When you receive emails like like, always open a new browser and login from there.
Once you have login, check if there is any message and see if there is anything wrong with your account.
Most of the time there should be nothing.
So take note and beware of the scammers!
They will say… my competitors are doing this… I can’t do this.
My competitors are doing that, I can’t do that.
Let me tell you my honest advice.
Seriously, it’s not worth paying much attention to your competitors.
But why not?
Because worrying about the competition quickly turns into an obsession.
Most people didn’t know that several years ago, I graduated from school with a fashion degree.
And I was really proud of it.
During my stint at an internship, I had the chance to work for some of the top retail labels in Europe such as, “Topshop, NEXT, etc.
I tried learning everything I could.
From designing to sales to managing of staffs – I wanted to know what it took to run a successful retail business.
My plan was to open my own line of retail outlets, coz I didn’t want to just work for anybody.
After all, there isn’t much prospect for Fashion students at that time in Singapore.
Yes! Finally, I am back from my 2 weeks honeymoon and I just can’t wait to share with you the adventures I had in USA!
It was surprisingly fun in USA and quite frankly, I didn’t really expect it to be this way.
I always have a fear of traveling too far away as I hate jetlag.
The furthest flight I have taken, was to London, which was many years ago.
The 14 hours flight was horrible and I needed 2 days of sleep to over come the jetlag.
And since then, I have never taken a flight of more than 7 hours until my honeymoon.
But when my wife told me that she wanted to go to the US for our honeymoon, I almost ‘flipped out’.
