HOW I FIRST GOT "SCAMMED" BY GLOBAL INTERGOLD
(SCAM here means S-ure C-ash A-ng M-atatanggap)
Wow! It was almost half a year ago when I last blogged about my life here. You probably know me to be a busy person, hence, the intermittent posts in the past, but this time around, it wasn't because of my travels and online work as a virtual assistant that 've been busy with. Truth is, I've been busy buying gold and making myself a millionaire in a period of almost 5 months! I'm just so fed up working 24 hours a day with no decent savings in the bank! I wanted a new life and I wanted major positive changes to start happening to me. This is why I've always loved reading self-help, happiness and money books since time immemorial and why I took up insurance studies back in September 2014 until I realized that it would take 3 years for me to even start earning P300K a month. Add to that the fact that I needed to be driving my own car to meet up with potential clients and of course as an introvert, the thought of facing clients puts a huge pressure on me. So after weeks of studies, I decided not to take the insurance exam and pursued other interests instead.
Then a month after that, November 17, 2014 to be precise, a friend of mine from Qatar (Frank) introduced me to Global Intergold (it was still under a different name then). I ignored it at first. But he was persistent. I finally started taking notice and slowly devoted some of my time studying their rewards system. It was after 3 months of intermittent research and study about their rewards program that I finally got the will and courage to try it by joining a different team much closer to home. Someone I met who started buying gold in November (Glenn) already earned P540K and there I was still broke and struggling to make ends meet. I said to myself it was then or never. If he could do it (he was a call center agent in Makati who immediately quit his job when he got his first P180K payout), then so can I! I'm hardworking, resourceful, patient and as not-so-humble as it may sound, I know myself to be kind of a super woman. I love juggling many things all at the same time! I can work long hours if I have to. I've been doing it all my life anyway, I might as well start earning what I deserve! So if he could earn P540K in 3 months, then I will earn more than that half the time! I made that my challenge!
So in spite of the fact that my family was against me doing it; despite the fact that bebeko Hanz at first told me it was a scam; despite the fact that I was half nervous putting in my last personal savings of P36,500 to my first solo account, I finally withdrew what's left of my money and prayed over it. Anyway, if I lose it, I'll just work some more online so I can recuperate what I lost. That was early February 2015. Then I found out that bebeko Hanz all of a sudden turned a new leaf and had himself registered for a solo account on Feb. 6. He said if it was a scam, then our P36,500 would be our tuition fee to that learning. So a week after he got registered, I finally gave my precious P36,500 to the Paragold Team. After 4 eternal days of waiting, my account got activated. That was Feb. 15. Then on Feb. 18, my 37th birthday, the scam news on TV spread like wildfire.
