Local group buying site Cash Cash Pinoy was recently faced with an aggressive post by the blog Technoodling.net about a supposed Travel offer. To summarize, the offer was a 3D/2N trip to Tokyo for around PHP 21,000. But when the “hidden charges” came up, it amounted to more than offer. In that same post, the Cash Cash Pinoy CEO released a statement saying that their offers are not scams and wrote; “we do not hide what isn’t included in small print, but all details are explicitly listed and easily found on the site. We even use a contrast-rich button to call out further details.” He also verified that all their promos are approved by the DTI. Apparently, it IS this SMALL PRINT that’s the culprit in these group buying sites. Me and some of my other friends have had bad experiences with group buying sites before. Personally, I stopped using the service. My unsolicited advise to CashCashPinoy and other group buying sites: have a way to inform your buyers of the “other charges” before they hit that BUY button. It can either be an email to confirm, a pop-up box, or whatever. If you really are transparent, make it even more obvious. Now that’s the real problem with group buying sites. Caveat Emptor!   [fbcomments]  ...

After the incident involving Vhong Navarro recently getting beaten up to an inch of his life, you may see a lot of posts on Facebook, Twitter or other social media about a supposed “CCTV Footage” of the incident. Well, for heaven’s sake, please DO NOT CLICK or SHARE! I already made an announcement to my friends in my own social network when I became suspicious after seeing so many similar posts online. In fact, ABS-CBN already made an announcement that the post is a hoax and more likely being used by shady individuals or groups to get your password or account details. So, if you have to have accidentally clicked it, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS IMMEDIATELY. Do your friends a favor and tell them to do the same if you see them sharing these posts on your feed. Stay safe! Don’t forget to share this and warn all your friends....
