|How ASUU Strike Almost Made Me Fall For Neolife Scam (formerly GNLD). by Younghacka(m): 2:09pm On Jan 24, 2019|
I Wish To Share My Experience With The House On How I Almost Parted Ways With My Money Due To A Scam Job Interview Yesterday.
I Met A Colleague Of Mine In School (Same Faculty And Level) On Tuesday 22nd January While I Was Heading For Fellowship, We Greeted As Usual And Talked About The Current Strike And Possible Resumption, As I Was Going He Called Me Back And Asked What I Was Doing To Make Income I Replied ''Nothing''; Then He Gave Me His Number That I Should Call Him Today For A Job Opportunity Where I Can Be Making Income, I Took His Number Joyously And Promised To Call Him Later.
Fastforward To Yesterday Wednesday, I Called Him Early Morning And He Picked And Said I Should Come To Alamieyeseigha Road Here In Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. I Was Occupied By Something In The Morning So I Was Late And He Kept Calling Me Until I Arrived, When I Arrived He Took Me To A Hall (Golden Gate Multipurpose Hall).
As I Entered, I Saw People Sitting In Small Groups With Somebody Talking To Each Group, I Was Taken To One Ebi And He Sat Down With Me And Started Motivating Me, I Was Like ''What Nonsense Is This?'' :| :/
I Just Played Along With The Guy's Ranting As He Talked For More Than An Hour Telling Me About My Dreams And How Job Is A Scam And Having A Boss Is Slavery In The 21st Century.
I Was Just Nodding My Head In Amazement As He Fired Down And Was Sweating On His Face, He Probably Though I Was Buying His Preaching Until A Lady Came Forward And The Groups Were Told To Summarize And Come Together.
The Lady Started Another Session Of Motivational Speeches As She Called On Supposed Senior Managers (Hungry Looking And Wearing Unironed Cloths) To Give Us Advice; The 3 Of Them Each Spent An Average Of 7 Minutes Telling Us About Their Life Story And How They Are Now Managers And Some Almost Directors And Living In Financial Freedom.
Meanwhile I Was Looking At Their Shoes As They Spoke And I Though In My Mind That These Shoes Have Really Seen Life. Finally The First Lady Took Over And Gave Us Another Round Of Advice And Motivation. She Finally Called On A Young Senior Manager Wearing Jump Up Trousers And Rumpled Shirt. By This Time I Was SMH In My Mind.
The Guy Told Us His Own Story And How He Is Now On The Path Of Financial Freedom.
He Started Telling Us About How You Can Grow To Diamond Director Earning More Than 20 Million Monthly And He Showed Us Pictures Of People Who Were Agberos And School Dropouts Who Are Living Large Due To Neolife, Travelling Around The World.
To Cut The Long Story Short, After Another 2 Hours Of Preaching They Gave Us Form To Fill Our Details And We Were Asked To Choose From 2 Packages Costing 16k And 21k Respectively. By This Time One Of The Guy That Was Behind Me Had Left The Place Angrily And Disappointed. I Was Just Sitting There Because Of Courtesy And I Wanted To See The End Of Their Game. The Guy Asked Us To Bring Out Our ATM Cards For Quick Processing But Nobody Bulged, Then They Asked For Cash And The Senior Managers Were Called Out To Attend To Us, The Guy That Came To Me Asked Me How Much I Had I Looked At His Shoe And Clothes And Felt Pity For Him So I Decided To Play Cool, Told Him The Money With Me Is Already Budgeted For Something Else, Then A Girl Came And Tried To Seductively Made Me Pay, I Told Her I Did Not Plan To Spend Any Money Here And She Insisted I Pay Even If Its N100. . . She Was Literally Searching My Pockets .
I Finally Gave Her N100 As I Did Not Want To Fall My Hand.
Then We Gathered And Their Supposed Coordinator Who They Were Treating Like A god.
She Gave Another 30 Minutes Talk As The Managers Cheered Her On. . . My Eyes Were Just Fixed On Her As I Knew Instantly That This Woman Was Using This People To Pay Her Bills While They Are Do The Work. . . ''Suffering And Smiling'', I Could Taste The Lies And Deceit In Her Words.
They Later Closed As The Talked Briefly To The Newbies Once Again And About 3 People Took My Numbers.
I Just Acted Like Nothing Was Wrong And Left. . . As I Was Waiting For KEKE, I Saw Two Senior Managers Lapping Each Other In Another KEKE And I SMH As I Was Ashamed On Their Behalf.
P.S. Most Of The People That Came With Me Were People That Saw Notices Of Job Vacancy Like Cleaners, Cooks, Office Assistants With Juicy Salaries etc.
This Morning 4 Different People Has Called Me About 10 Times And I Told Them I Cannot Make It.
The Next Person That Calls I Will Bare My Mind To Him/Her.
I Just Pity My Friend Yusuf That Is In Their Mental Cage Hoping For A Good Lifestyle While Another Person Pays Her Bills With His Sweat.
I Am Just Angry For My 100 Naira That Just Loss Like That.
Please BE WARY OF THESE PEOPLE AND SAVE YOURSELF WASTE OF ENERGY AND MONEY.

It is really sad that at least one person falls for these things daily, nationwide.
The human heart could be deceitful!
I wonder what Martin Luther King or Karl Max or Che Guevara would say 'bout this..

Lwkm...... This more of a comedy than story interestingly I experienced this in the past!! But OP i must confess u got chills, me i left them in middle of the jamboree, Say i no fight them that day is by the grace of God because they made me to write an application letter, CV included, bring 4 passports,dress in cooperate,and the most painful aspect is that they told me to come as early as 7am if not i should forget about the job, me thinking it was genuine went 6:30am only to wait for the idiots till about 11:30am without eating anything.... They are lucky it wasn't anywhere closer to my hood, i would have broken someone's head before leaving

it's just 100 naira no biggie, Atleast you learned a lot about motivational bullshyt & how to not get duped stylishly.
So win win, but sha GNLD don spoil woh, in the past they pay in $$$ when you reach a certain post like Director & even when you buy their stuff for let's say 30k, You go get like 10k given to you at the end of the month.
I just come to the conclusion any company that has Nigerians in charge always ends up extremely useless especially if the original owners withdraw from the country physically

If they had a reasonable product and put in this effort into marketing they will sell but they choose to remain with GNLD, selling a brand name that we all know is a a scam

Nnamdi Kanu needs to say or do something, FP today is full of rubbish.
The mods are doing meeting on which Igbo topic to post on FP to generate traffic. Mbaka missing is not flowing.
Change the topic to Neo-Igbo to attract Afonjarudeens

Lols I have a very stubborn girlfriend who finds it very hard to listen to me, but i was surprised she listened to me on the neo life scam.
They called her one early morning that she should come for a job interview, seeing that she is getting tired of her current job i had to give her the permission to go after some findings about the interview location.
Later that same afternoon, when i called her, i could feel the echo from the background, then it dawn on me that this people are GLND.
I jejely told her to forget about that noncence because she was already beginning to show interest on it.
Invite me i invite another person that person invite another person, that one invite another person, bull crap.
Onyin, Thank God you listened to me on this.

Research Topic: Exploring The Full Potentials Of the INEC’s Smart Card Reader....
Long before now, the only function of the INEC’s Smart Card Reader (SCR) which was known to Nigerians was Just the “Accreditation” - And even at that, this “Accreditation” function was rejected at the Election Tribunals due to the fact that the Current Electoral Act didn't support the use of the SCR. The Current Electoral Act still recognises ONLY the manual “INEC-Register” methods of Accreditation.
But Nevertheless, during the various off-cycle elections, and during the General Elections of 2019, the INEC was able to successfully test-run a lot of all the other of the “untapped functions” of the SCR such as:
1. Identification of the individual.
2. Authentication of the individual with respect to the Voter's Card which he/she presented at the Accreditation Stage.
3. Categorisation of the various Elections that might be taking place simultaneously and sorting the voters’ information appropriately according to the Elections which they are supposed to participate in
4. Actual Electronic Voting using the SCR itself.
5. Instant and simultaneous transmission of the results (as well as voters’ information) to all the necessary servers - either at the Wards, LGAs, States, etc - through a dedicated mobile wireless network configured specifically for the purpose. (Just the way the POS technology uses mobile wireless network to transmit and receive information).
It is also possible for someone to vote in an election from a Polling-Unit that is not the one which he registered with, provided that the voter is still within the locality where his Voter's Card can vote in that particular Election in question.
For Example, A Voter that registered in Anambra State can conveniently participate and vote in the Presidential Election if he is in Lagos State, but he cannot vote for Governorship or Senatorial Elections in Lagos State, since his source Polling-Unit in Anambra State cannot decide for localised elections within Lagos State.
During the Categorisation and sorting phases, the SCR can detect the Elections which the particular voter can participate in, and the ones which he cannot.
The only things that it would require for all these full potentials of the SCR to be achieved is proper configurations (and upgrades) to the software of the SCR, and then, the amendment of the Electoral Act, and adequate logistics put in place.
Currently..,, (and this is, assuming that INEC is waiting for the amendment of the Electoral Act, and all other variables remaining constant),
It is highly expected that once the Electoral Act is amended, the very first step towards the full-blown “Electronic Voting” would be to digitize the Accreditation/Identification process, as well as the transmission process. Thus, there won't be need for all those Manual Accreditation, and Manual Transmission Methods any longer.
It would also be fast and “manipulation-proof” too, since the Collation is happening Simultaneously at many servers across the various levels of the Election at different locations.
For example, if somebody tries to hack one (or two) of the servers, the person cannot hack all the other numerous servers that are working independent of those particular servers which he tried to hack.
As time goes on, full electronic voting can then be introduced (that is, after series of test-running must have been successfully conducted).
And ultimately, as the Electronic Voting becomes fully functional, INEC can then decide to make it possible for someone to vote in elections from Polling-units that are not the ones they registered in, so far the SCR can specify the Accreditation/Voting processes as “off-unit” activities, and then collated adequately in the appropriate servers of the appropriate Wards or LGAs, and then, the information properly documented in the off-unit servers (where the actual election took place) so that there won't be misinformation or excess figures after the collation of the results.
(This particular process may seem too complicated and cumbersome, but that is just what it has to be... If INEC puts it in place and execute it properly, nobody would even notice how complicated or cumbersome it is).
The Importance of Electronic Accreditation.
1. There won't be room for over-voting at the Polling-units any longer (even if the election officials deliberately allowed such) because, once the Polling Officer clicks the button for “End Of Election”, the SCR automatically transmits all the Voters’ Information to all the upper Levels of Collation-Servers, even before the vote-counting begins.
2. The Accreditation data can only be sourced/generated directly from the voters who came out to vote. It cannot be keyed-in manually. Therefore, the only information the SCR can transmit are those that were generated as the voting progressed, and not some sort of invented figures or manipulated figures.
3. If someone comes with another person's Voter's Card, the Identification and Authentication processes will fail.
And if such person proceeds to vote notwithstanding, it will definitely result to over-voting. (In this case, the work is now seriously on INEC to make sure that the SCR doesn't fail in the Identification and Authentication processes)
The Importance of Electronic Transmission.
1. It eliminates all the possible errors that usually occur due to wrong additions, writing down the wrong figures, seeing figures wrongly due to tiny writings, seeing figures wrongly due to poor writings, omissions, and so on.
2. It eliminates delays that usually occur during the calling out of the figures for addition, the actual time wasted during the addition itself, the encountered-errors and the decision-making process that usually follows based on what to do with the encountered errors, time of transportation of the results from one level of collation to the higher level.
3. It enforces instant notification and publicity of the results as they come in. The results are no more shrouded in tight secrecy, and made visible only to the INEC officials and Party Agents that are strictly guarded at the collation centres. This time, the Virtual-Results-Portal becomes very active and gets constantly updated with the results from all the points of collation.
4. Information about all the cancelled Polling-units (including cancelled Wards and LGAs), as well as the reasons for such cancellations, would be clearly seen and be well appreciated and accepted by all the parties involved, and also by the viewing public.
The Only disadvantage I see with all these is that:
The Politicians (judging from the amount of immaturity they show off currently) may feel so cheated with the new system, being that they no longer have a strong control over the outcome of the electoral system, and therefore they may decide to go to any length through violence, in order to make sure that they thwarted the elections. This may eventually lead to increased loss of lives and properties.
But the good news is, the violence will only last a little while, and by then, the Politicians would be forced to become more mature and realise by themselves that “it is the people who vote to choose them that they should try their best to always satisfy, and not those that conduct the elections.
If there are any more Disadvantages (or Advantages) which I omitted in the write-up, then anyone is free to point them out, so that it can be added..

You're just lucky that they didn't package well. If they came well dressed in flashy cars you might have fallen for their trick.
But in any case, they will surely find some clients who are not as smart as you are.
