Re: Transfer Money via E-mail services (spam?)

PayPal has only 55 countries in its `PayPal Worldwide` list. They do not allow residents of Russia (among others) to open account nor pay thru PayPal merchant gateway with credit cards. I am a webdeveloper, and I need to get payments from abroad time to time. That's why I was excited to find another international money transfer company called Mondopay, after those I already registerred with but who ain't as popular as PayPal. Unfortunately I found Mondopay is insecure. I got access to other member's profile after signing in to mine. Without any hacking effort from my side.


Update:

I got a message from Denis V. Strutinschi from MondoPay Team. He says they managed to solve the problem. Iíve just checked the system. It does not let you switch from one currency to another within the same session. You will be forced to re-login to use another account.

Re: Transfer Money via E-mail services (spam?)

This is one of the oddest threads we've had. It's also one of the more gratifying spambusting ones.

Lesson to astroturfers: astroturfing here is a BAD IDEA. Not only are we the #2 and #3 ranked pages on your company's name, but now somebody who claims actual experience with your site is here to spread the word, and his site is likely to gain rank now. I notice he blogs in english and in a Cyrillic alphabet...presumably Russian.

If you want to pump up your new site, do it through proper channels. And build a good reputation first!

Obviously, I stand by my judgement that the original post in this thread was a form of spam despite mondopay's objections.

Re: Transfer Money via E-mail services (spam?)

It's amazing what Google will turn up when you "Google" someone's name.

http://www.afacerionline.com/index.p...owDetails/2084

Contact Persons*
STRUTINSCHI VALERIAN DENIS,
Phone: 041 644513

Is this the same Denis V. Strut... ?

Maybe I'll give 'em a ring later today (tonite?).* Maybe, in Romainia, this name is like John Smith in the USA.* We're finding several numbers "Denis" can be reached at.*

Hmm, good idea. It's a cheap call with Skypes.

Maybe he can explain about the suspicious and questionable mondopay.com domain and their SPAM and apparent lack of security.

Edit: This blog site is also receiving mondopay.com SPAM http://www.seopedia.org/spam/e-mails/mondopay-spam/

Re: Transfer Money via E-mail services (spam?)

If anyone has any doubt about whether this is a legitimate site, reading the "about us" page should clarify things.

https://www.mondopay.com/usd/en/about.htm

Some quotes from that page:

Quote:
You can believe there should be one universal online payment system and will strongly compete to be the provider of choice.
Watch out paypal!

Quote:
At last, you have found an online payment processor that will not "freeze" or suspend your account for activities such as MLM, Income Opps., adult business.
No comment.

Quote:
Any decision made by , its officers, or representatives will be final.
Hi my name is " ," and my decision is final that I won't use mondopay.

Quote:
PASSWORDS:
MondoPay will never ask for your password. Never give your password to anyone. MondoPay will not be responsible for losses incurred by users as the result of their misuse of passwords.
Interesting... I wonder what people are supposed to enter in the password field of the mondopay login, which happens to be on the same page as the text above.

Quote:
INDEMNIFICATION:
You agree to indemnify and hold, its affiliates, officers, directors, and employees harmless from any claim, action, demand, loss, or damages (including attorneys' fees) made or incurred by any third party arising out of or relating to your use of the Service.
No comment.
