New rules for cyber cafes soon

Malaysian government announced that there will be some new guidelines to be enforced soon on Internet and cyber cafes in order to control these businesses.

Among the new guidelines are:

  1. Have to close by midnight daily.
  2. Banned from using tinted glasses in their premises. (must be able to see through from the outside)
  3. Only allowed to operate from the ground floor.
  4. Those under 12 years old must be accompanied by parents or guardian and only allowed to stay up to 10.00pm.
  5. Prohibited from providing gaming activities, gambling, pornography, music and publications with negative element.
  6. Cigarettes and alcohol to be prohibited from being sold.
  7. A book log to record the entry and departure time of the patrons.

According to the Housing and Local Government Deputy Minister, these moves are aim to prevent the Internet and cyber cafes from turning into the possible source of social ills.

I just wonder how the cyber cafes are going to survive in the business.

Lossing RM100,000 due to phishing

At least four persons suffered losses more than RM100,000 when they visited the wrong website, identical to the genuine bank's website. Without realising that the URL look almost identical too, they entered they user names and passwords.

All four are professionals, aged between 25 to 30 years old.

A 28-year-old woman, being suspected as a member of the phishing syndicate, was detained on June 13. She works as an IT consultant in Kuala Lumpur. Police believe that the syndicate has been operating since mid-May and is based in Nigeria.

No more 20 days interest free for partial payment

Starting from 1st July, 2008, credit card holders in Malaysia who pay only partial of their balance instead the full payment will no longer enjoy the 20-days interest free on new retail purchasing.

The move initiated by Bank Negara Malaysia aims to promote prudent spending and good financial discipline. Those who pays in full will be able to enjoy the 20-days interest free facilities.

At the same time, new interest rate tier also come into effect 1st July 2008, as to encourage more card holders to pay on time. More than 50% of the card holders are just paying the minimum or partial of their balance.

The move to do away with the 20-days interest free will in a way increase the finance (interest) rate for those who are paying the partial amount of their balance. Given the alarming development on the credit card debts, it may make the life of those already at the brink of bankruptcy become harder to service their balance. On the other hand, it helps to educate the public to spend wisely and manage their finance with higher discipline.
