Citizens' Issues
Another MLM scam in the happening, this time under the pretext of an online survey

An MLM company that claims to be Asia’s largest online survey company, does not even have an office address or a telephone number but is offering to ‘pay’ $10 just for filling out online surveys

Speak Asia Online, which claims to be based in Singapore, is spreading its multi-level marketing (MLM) wings in India under the pretext of online surveys. As is usual in any MLM scheme, this company also makes big claims about earnings, but fails to provide any documentary evidence for the same.

The company asks new customers or subscribers to pay $120 (standard) or $220 (premium) for becoming a panellist for one year. However, it says the fee is for its e-bulletin for one year. It clearly says: "You can remain a panellist and earn from Speak Asia only as long as your subscription to E-Bulletin is in force." This means, before earning a single penny, you need to pay the company upfront. After the one-year period, one needs to renew the subscription. There is no mention of renewal fees.

Speak Asia Online sends its surveys mostly on Wednesday to all subscribers. Each survey takes around 40 minutes to complete. It says: "The first eight weeks are treated as a training period and the company provides you feedback on incorrectly filled surveys." After that period, any incomplete or incorrect surveys are rejected and the company does not pay for it.

The company assures that it will make the payment in local currency through direct bank transfers. The catch here is that one has to pay bank transfer charges of 3% or minimum $7.5 per payment. In case you have earned $10 for the month, you would get payment of $2.5 only, as $7.5 from the total payment would get deducted as bank transfer charges.

Speak Asia Online says it provides income in reward points (one reward point is $1). It awards up to seven reward points per week for a standard panellist and 20 reward points to a premium panellist. It offers survey income as well as passive income that one earns by adding more people into a down-line. However, for the next day's incentive calculations, it does not consider the weaker line. It says: "Weaker leg is flushed out whereas the stronger leg is always carried forward for next day's incentive calculation."

Although the company offers to pay for filling out surveys online, it fails to mention that for doing this job one requires minimum knowledge of English and the Internet. is hosted in the US on the server and the hosting services will expire on 21 January 2011. Besides that, there is no information available on the domain, its owners, their addresses and contact details.

The company website does provide links for all countries and major cities but directs all queries to its Singapore address only, which neither has a telephone number nor any email ID. Except India, the so called 'good income business opportunity' does not exist for other countries.

According to a complaint posted on, this company has changed its name three times over the past five years and is blacklisted for non-compliance in Singapore.

Its website, does have a link for legal documents but provides the legal documents not of the company but generic documents from the Customs Department, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and so on.

Speak Asia Online shows no evidence about the legality of its business or any registration certificate issued by government authorities. All the company can show as evidence is a registration certificate issued by the Singapore government. The issuing authority of this certificate, Registrar of Companies and Businesses, however, has clearly stated that the certificate of good standing or any of its contents shall not be reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted or otherwise distributed in any way without prior permission of the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), Singapore.

In addition, there is no mention of its promoter or top management on the site. In fact, there are no names on the website. All one can see is just names of its 'dealers' and their bank account numbers.

MONDAY, 16 MAY 2011

Being a SPEAKASIAN for the past One year without any problem and getting a regular expected Income and without any hindrance I would like to mention & comment the following regarding the News in the Star News and Aj Tak News Channel –

1) First I would like to say that the both the News Channel did not Interview any Real Panelist / Speakasians who is doing the survey and earning (Income) on a regular basis.
2) Both the channel said that there is no guarantee on the investment made with Speak Asia, Let me Remind and say to ever body visiting this site – Please note (which U all must be knowing) that any Investment made is never a 100% secured and does not carry any Guarantee of returns such as 1) Stock Market 2) Mutual Fund 3) Insurance Linked Investment 4) Property 5) Gold & Silver etc. In India in the past we all have seen that people made Investment in such market linked Schemes have made Heavy losses and have under gone Bankruptcy; due to this effect people have also taken the path of suicide. Further every day people are losing in Billions in the stock Market. So why the Media expecting 100% Guarantee from Speak Asia ?
3) Next thing is the Electronic Media has said that this is a money Laundering - and at the same time They have said that speak Asia is paying 400% return in a year – Well if this is so – We all know Speak Asia has also paid back all the Invested money to the Investors within the first Two and Half Months that also in US Dollar by proper Banking Channel which runs into several Millions of US Dollars, this means India has also earned Foreign Currency too. And I am sure since the Panelist are being paid through proper Banking Channel the Panelist cannot hide their Income hence most of the Panelist are paying Income Tax to the Income Tax department hence again there is a heavy Revenue earned by the Government of India.
4) Thousand of House wives from all over India, is earning respectable money just by doing survey on the Internet from their home and at their own sweet time. Similarly there are many poor students are paying their Collage fees to get Higher education by using this facilities of Speak Asia.
Let me also Inform to every body that Company like Star TV who was the first to make a Big Noise about this so called Breaking News – is currently developing and Gearing themselves to come in a Big way in this Survey Business. However currently the Star TV is already in the survey business in a very small & limited manner and they are unable to expand due to the presence of Speakasia in the market. Hence what is the strategy of Star TV ? Very simple - First defame Speakasia and next grab all the existing customers (Panelist) of Speak Asia . By doing this Star TV is going to paint themselves as a saver to the entire public. (Pls see -
5) Star News channel said that Speak Asia is siphoning out Indian Money out of the Country since it is a Singaporean company – well then let me inform you all that Star TV itself is a non Indian TV Company based in Hong Kong (In a Chinese Country) - Star TV India itself is repatriating Billions of Dollars out of India too – Star TV will go to any extend to Defame Speak Asia and get their Business – Remember the Owner of Star TV is non other than Keith Rupert Murdoch, by birth he is an Australian (Age 80yrs) – He wanted to acquire Fox TV but the Government of America rejected it since he was not an American citizen; then by all means he got his US Citizenship and brought the Fox TV and many such Business House in the US. He then wanted to by the STAR TV in Hong Kong but again the Chinese Government rejected its proposal since he is not a Chinese by birth – with this regard Rupert Murdoch at the age 68 he got married to a very young Chinese Lady (30yrs Old) name Ms. Deng Wendi (Divorceing his earlier Wife) and after this marriage immediately he acquired the Star TV and currently Ms. Deng Wendi is the Vice President of Star TV. Hence you can all see the attitude and work ethics of Star TV; that is they will go to any extent to acquire their business objectives. (Pls See - ).
6) The next more important thing is – Today majority of the media in India is a total Blackmailing company, they live & earn from Blackmailing money - The Media is blackmailing Large Business Houses, Politicians and who ever is doing or earning good money. The media is a White-collar Blackmailers. You all readers must ask your own selves that why the Media is not making a hue & Cry on Ratan Tata Case regarding the 2G Scam ( Nira Radia) – Because the Media is paid heavily to keep their mouth Shut. And remember this Scam is over few thousand Million Dollars Scam. Why the Media is not talking about the Scam for making Mr. Warren Anderson (Union Carbide – CEO) run away from India to USA after killing over 8000 innocent citizens of Bhopal and now it is over 26 years still the compensation is not settled or unpaid – because a huge money is being paid to the media to keep their mouth shut both by the Indian politicians and Union Carbide. The Media only makes noise when they need money and accordingly the Media performs the Blackmailing activities and then keeps their mouth shut as soon as they get the required money.
7) Now regarding the SURVEY – As a panelist of Speak Asia let me inform to every readers that - Who cares about the Survey ……….as long as we (Panelist) is getting paid for the work and at the right time its all FINE (All Ij Well); and I am sure all panelist of Speak Asia will agree with me to the same. The problem is companies like Star TV and many such other companies wants to know HOW the Speak Asia is making money and paying all its Panelist for the past Two Years and there is not a single complain from the panelist. Honestly Speaking none of the Speak Asia Panelist care regarding who is the Company we are doing the survey for … be it Airtel / ICICI / Bata …etc. We just need money that’s it. And as long as we are getting the money legally from proper Banking Channel.
8) The Media has said that Speak Asia is lying regarding their Clients such as Airtel / Bata / ICICI etc …. – How does this matter to a panelist ? ….. As long as speak Asia is paying - ALL IJ WELL. With this regard let me remind all the readers that Insurance Companies like LIC / ICICI / GIC … etc people have invested with these companies with their hard earned money and these companies have still not paid to many such Insured Customers the Insurance Compensation to the families of the dead or to the owners of the Damaged Properties. And this is to the tune of few Billions of Dollars that these Insurance Companies need to Pay. Now ask yourself why the Star TV and such other News Channels are NOT making noise regarding these companies?
9) We need to understand one Thing - The main problem is that – 1) Lots of Panelists have taken loans from banks and have invested in the Speak Asia and these Panelists have also returned the Fund with interest to the Banks within a very short period, and this is a big problem for the Bank since the Bank did not earn the required or the projected amount. 2) Lots of Panelists has withdrawn a good amount from the Stock Market and Mutual Fund and Invested in the Speak Asia, hence this is again a big problem for the Investment Companies & Consultants (Brokers). In conclusion and in short what I want to say that all these negative Propaganda could be a nexus along with Banks + Media + Investment Companies & Brokers and or those who have vested Interest.
10) Last but not the least – We all need to ask one questions to ourselves that is – There are several online Internet Forums and Why still not a single Panelists are complaining regarding their Payments to Speak Asia?

Who is making the Noise and big Hue & Cry? Only the outsiders, who are not the panelist.

By S. Sanjiv (Panelists)

Deepak Sharma

In Reply to vspanditt 6 years ago

Hi Sanjiv,

It seems you have bought 9 Panels instead of one :-)!

Although I can answer for all of your points but the most important to me is this one -

THIS particular mindset - that "As long As Speak Asia is paying" is the KEY element in this entire Scam and I am just too much worried to see how intelligent people like you believe on this theory of "as long as"?

Mr. Panelist, It's not a matter of "as long as" it's actually a matter of "How and From Where" company was paying?

Because You have written more than 100 lines in the favor of this business, you must be aware of the most most basic principle for any business - "Business Ethics". Which says that -

Business ethics (also known as corporate ethics) is a form of applied ethics or professional ethics that examines ethical principles and moral or ethical problems that arise in a business environment. It applies to all aspects of business conduct and is relevant to the conduct of individuals and entire organizations.

Now there are few questions on the ethical business of Speak Asia -

1- If Ezine is worth Rs. 11000?

2- Now by putting your hand on your heart just tell me why 99.99% people joined Speak Asia?

Top Reason - To Earn Survey Income (Not the Ezine)
(I can challenge you that it will not get even a single sale if they leave this reason)

3- Now the most important question - When 99.99% of your business is based on the Survey Income, Why this Company is telling the lie about this FUNDAMENTAL issue?

4- If this company can give a legal notice by spending millions in the Times of India, why can't it sue the Media?
(You know why? Because SA can't prove the indemnity)

5- In their own Press Conference, Mr. CEO told that the company has paid 68 Crores in Service tax. Now Mr. Panelist please explain why is that so less?
In India Service tax is around 10 percent.
In simple calculation 1100 ruppes should have been paid to Govt. of India for the Service tax.
It comes to - 19 lac panelist x 1100 = 2,09,00,00,000 = 209 Crores!

6- If the magnitude of business is so high, Why company delayed it's plans to create a legal entity in the country? It shows the lack/complete failure of Professionalism and planning.

7- Now Leave all this, just let me know if your Son, Brother or anyone in the family starts earning Rs. 10 lac every month within first year of his business/job and he keeps on earning this much income, Will you never ask him from where he is making money, how is he making it, is he doing the right thing?

Or Mr. Panelist, you will say that "As Long As" he is earning 10 lac per month I don't mind whether he is earning it ethically, legally or not?

Exactly the Same way everyone including the media is worried whether the base of this business (Survey) really exists or not? It's not a matter of "As Far As" it's a matter of Genuine Business Vs. Money Circulation.

And I am sure it doesn't exist otherwise any company which is on the verge of collapse will never hesitate to show the authenticity of it's business model. If you don't want to show the client name it's fine but you can always show the income proofs from survey business. May be only to media to satisfy them but your people are not ready to do so simply BECAUSE they don't have any Income from Survey business they are just Circulating the Money!

If You still have the courage to say "As far As", I salute your spirit but in negative.

Dear Sanjiv I also want to appeal you on this open platform, I am not against you, I am not against Speak Asia but I am hundred percent against Money Circulation because till now NO COMPANY has survived on the bases of Money Circulation. Please differentiate this fact while joining any other MLM company next time.

Our beloved country and countrymen are a victim of Money Circulation schemes on the name of MLM.

I don't know why but I feel if people like you decide, we can also produce companies like FLP, Amway, Tianshi, Usana from India.

Let's be the Change!

As per the article speak asia website domain was to expire in January 2011, however the website continues to exist. India sales telephone nos. are available on website and corporate office is coming up in Mumbai soon. Moreover I have made more than 30% profit on my investment and shall surely renew my membership. Being a martketing professional I can tell you that cos. are spending a lot of money on pre and post product launches testing and research - in crores of rs.. Speak asia's coverage in terms of respondents is huge and cos. get a wider perspective on their strategies, therby putting their monies in the right areas and reducing risks and preventing losses


In Reply to Rohan 6 years ago

my dear friend,
the co has spent a lot on its marketing campaign, thats becoz, they have crores of rupees of panelist money. the co doesnt have strong foundation. its foundation is based on lies and that has been proved by its own press conference. i m sure if you ask any expert on tax or a ca or lawyer about this co, they will give you the right picture.

You are wrong as I was until I joined the same being referred to one at who offered to get me a direct referral within few weeks of joining. Within 3 months I have not only recovered my investment but have a tidy passive income from panelists who have joined in my downline. Speak Asia has gone into e-commerce now whereby a panelist can make purchase online from dollars in their account after seeing the products at some kiosks that have come up just for panelists. These products are offered at heavy discounts. Before u comment just visit the site I have just mentioned from where I made the beginning. This company is going no where. For a meet at Goa, the company made arrangements for their panelists via a special train from Delhi where the ticket was only Rs170 for AC Chair Car with meals to boot! For a stay at a *** star for two days the charges were only Rs500. The only catch was that these charges had to be paid by the income in e-wallet not cash. So stop criticizing and read at the mentioned forum.

In Reply to PAWAN VERMA 6 years ago

@Pawan - you didn't save 11K, you lost an opportunity of a lifetime :-). Read on to get more clarity:

Here are some points from the articles and my comments (IN BOLD):

Although the company offers to pay for filling out surveys online, it fails to mention that for doing this job one requires minimum knowledge of English and the Internet ----- WHERE IS THE FAILURE. IN ALL THE TRAININGS, EVERYONE IS EXPLAINED ABOUT THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS AND ONE CAN ALSO BE TAUGHT HOW TO USE A COMPUTER. THE COMPANY IS ALSO GOING TO COME UP WITH OPTIONS OF USING OTHER INDIAN LANGUAGES.SO THIS LINE MAKES NO SENSE. is hosted in the US on the server and the hosting services will expire on 21 January 2011. Besides that, there is no information available on the domain, its owners, their addresses and contact details.------- JANUARY 21 2011 HAS COME AND GONE. THE SITE AND THE BUSINESS IS STILL RUNNING. WHICH OTHER WEBSITE TALKS ABOUT IT DOMAIN, ITS OWNERS AND THEIR DETAILS (THINK HOTMAIL, YAHOO, GOOGLE). SO WHO IS THIS AUTHOR TO DICTATE A FORMAT. THIS IS AGAIN A BASELESS REMARK THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVED WRONG.

The company website does provide links for all countries and major cities but directs all queries to its Singapore address only, which neither has a telephone number nor any email ID. Except India, the so called 'good income business opportunity' does not exist for other countries.------- The company address and phone no. is listed. You probably need to have the eyes for details. There is a call centre in India too. This proves that this article is completely dishonest

According to a complaint posted on, this company has changed its name three times over the past five years and is blacklisted for non-compliance in Singapore.---------- AGAIN ANOTHER BASELESS REMARK. INDIA-COMPLAINTS IS A SITE WHERE ANYONE CAN POST ANY COMPLAINT BUT IF A SIMILAR GUY WHO LACKS THE ANALYTICAL SKILLS AND BASIC COMMON SENSE HAS PUT A COMPALINT OUT THERE , IT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE.

Its website, does have a link for legal documents but provides the legal documents not of the company but generic documents from the Customs Department, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and so on.-------------- GIVE ME A SINGLE KNOWN SITE THAT POSTS ALL ITS LEGAL DOCUMENTS ON THE NET. THIS SEEMS TO BE AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T UNDERSTANDS THE BASICS.

Speak Asia Online shows no evidence about the legality of its business or any registration certificate issued by government authorities. All the company can show as evidence is a registration certificate issued by the Singapore government. The issuing authority of this certificate, Registrar of Companies and Businesses, however, has clearly stated that the certificate of good standing or any of its contents shall not be reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted or otherwise distributed in any way without prior permission of the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), Singapore ----------- IT'S A REGISTERED COMPANY IN SINGAPORE. THE AUTHOR HAS AGAIN NOT DONE HIS HOMEWORK. CHECK THIS LINK - ps://

In addition, there is no mention of its promoter or top management on the site. In fact, there are no names on the website. All one can see is just names of its 'dealers' and their bank account numbers.-------- TELL ME IF YOU SEE THE NAMES OF PROMOTER OR TOP MANAGEMENT ON GOOGLE, YAHOO OR HOTMAIL. IS THE AUTHOR A NEW KID ON THE BLOCK?

Hi All,

I joined Speakasia in Sept 2010.Investing 33k,I have got 70k till date.There has never been any hassles in the payments.I have got the amount credited to my account in a maximum of 4 working days..

The investment amount of 11k is nothing to the returns one gets.

I do not say that anyone should make a fool of the people of our country and run away!!But Speakasia is a growing company..rather a innovation...a revolution..!!!

Its main motto is to bring the Manufacturers and the Consumers together..Yes,its true that it has no registered office in India.But in 4-5 months time,5 zonal offices are coming up in India.

The motto is for the people's welfare.."Consumer Empowerment",just like "Jago Grahak Jago ..." Friends,its really a strong thought...Consumer Empowerment...not just a tagline..

In its span of more than year,no litigations have come up yet about the payments made or the surveys coming up..Due to the overgrowing no of Panelists,the load on the surver was growing.Some problems were there for a month or so..This has been taken care of now..n the website is running fine now..Its one of the best websites..!!!

The fact is simple..Speakasia is at a nascent stage now.But it has done what it has promised till date...Its not an MLM in totality..Its just about "Consumer Empowerment" nothing else..

The allegations are put by Star News..simple reason - The Star Group is also coming up with a Survey Site,and Speakasia,with its large member of Panelist,is its greatest competitor...So this was the best way to damage their name and fame..

But its just a matter of few months now..5 months at the max..n then the truth will come up..!!


In Reply to PAWAN VERMA 6 years ago

i ve a perfect example.once upon a time in india there was a discount mela of electronic items. 50 % discounts was given on branded items . there was much hue and cry for its purchase , people booked so many of them . after sum time wen bookings ran into crores, the discount mela was like no more existing . by that time the promoters of the scheme had already run away . the point here is that , its true that speak asia is so lucrative that anybody would fall for it .. and why not .. but do not know what is their target and when r they planning to twist their plan or run away .. thats why they r investing heavily on adds and lets see by wat time they achieve their goal .. BUT 1 THING IS FOR SURE ... IT WILL RUN AWAY VERY SOON OR THE GOVT WILL SHUT IT DOWN .. MAY BE IN 3 MONTHS OR 6 MONTHS OR 1 YEAR ... wait n watch

Initially I thought, might be some people have stopped to post their messages/comments but by get a forwarded Email from my cousin I really got shocked & could not believe that how can these sites (where we people can raise our voice or share our views) play so cheap tactics to suppress our Voices in which we just try to raise our Genuine issues & get others view on it?

Prakriti and all concerned readers,
We welcome comments which are brief and to the point. Initially we allowed Mr Khanna to post his comments. However, we also have a mechanism in place, which automatically blocks long content or content, which has too many email IDs, web addresses etc. In addition, Mr Khanna has nothing new to say, all his postings are one and the same. These repeated and longish comments may prevent/divert readers from reading other comments; therefore, we need to edit some long comments as well. Rest be assured we have never blocked a genuine reader (who uses real name and email ID) from posting comments. Thanks

Tnx for ur reply, it is my request pls do not delete the web links of the complete message/story. Here Neither we can post long message nor we can give its link to other reader then how come other can understand the complete story with evidences behind the message. Second How does it matter if some readers work undercover in the interest of the society /Country and expose the corrupt people/raisie the genuine issues alongwith proper evidences. Some people do work undercover as they feel that their personal life comes under danger. Because they feel Till they are alive then only they can serve the society/country as they are dangerous for some corrupt organizations/people of society/country.

Speck Asia is fraud – there is no easy way of earning money in this world else everyone would have been rich by now. Just think is there any MLM till now which succeed. NO - At initial point people start getting money, no doubt that’s their strategy to attract and want some figure to show and market there idea (fraudulent). One basic question why big companies wants to give these surveys to these non-registered companies with no full proof guarantee of return as they depend on this MLM strategy. Why this kind of schemes attracts only India Bangladesh why not UK US Australia. Please don’t promote this kind of fraudulent idea of making money in short span of time and make some of you peer or dear one unhappy by enrolling them with your emotions and sour your relation. Please STAY AWAY

If at all this is real case why cant some reputed company starts this and give employment as they might be looking some business. Win Win

Speak asia: e Survey companies joining fees is Rs. 11000/-
They said they give u yearly survey income upto 52000/- (per week 1000/- per survey)
Now ask one question,
if company gets example 12 lakhs customer,
Then total company turnover goes upto 1320,00,00,000/- (1320 Crores)
In a year they have to give per member survey income means
12,00,000/- X 52,000 (per member one year 52 weeks) = 6240,00,00,000/- (6240 Crores)

Which client give this 4920,00,00,000/- (4920 crores)…… your survey company..?

How companies afford this?



In Reply to AK Sharma 6 years ago

great calculation but some errors.

12,00,000 CUSTOMERS x 1000 rs ( 2 surveys from 1 company, and 500 rs for each they pay us) = 120 crores for 2 surveys a year and 60 crores for 1 survey a year.

So, this amount i feel is quite possible.
and we get 2 surveys a week so 104 surveys a year. so i am pretty sure that there are alot more products than 104 in the market.

also, surveys are most of time given according to your profile. so even if 75% of the members fit in a profile.. then that survey cost is reduced from 60 crores to 45 crores and 120 crores to 90 crores.

And i am pretty sure this amount is very much available with the companies for research in products in which they will be investing more than 10 times the amount they spend in survey.

I AM NOT TRYING TO PROVE THAT SPEAK ASIA IS TOTALLY GENUINE... but yes there is a possibility of the payout that they are giving.

also, this system works more on network marketing.. word of mouth.. so they by themselves are not spending on advertising but are instead giving it as referral money

everything has a good and bad opinion.

AND bi am sure

It's good to discuss all this but the real question is why Speak Asia in not answering questions like, the company stake holders, promoters, partners etc,.

Most important the distribution of money.

The concept is good but the company is not, if they couldn't cater to India then why did they start operations in Bangladesh and why are they hell bent upon developing more business when they don't have the infrastructure to support it with their server constantly down, I think all Indians should ask them these questions in the seminars they hold, they have a certain moral responsiblity towards their investors which they are not fulfilling, instead of investing blindly like I did, I have invested a lac in it, and now I am questioning my sanity.

speakasiaonline as it claims to be the largest survey company forgot to conduct market research on their own concept before entering the indian market, that itself shows they are novices in the field, and now people like us find it difficult to complete surveys because their server is forever down, and that is when they are catering to a million odd people only,when you bring it up with them all they can say is we did not expect such a response, had they done the research we would have been spared the agony, why can't they learn something from google or facebook. secondly their reps in India are rude, unprofessional uncouth guys. thirdly it suffers from delusions that it provides opportunity to Indians to enhance their life, (Sic!) as mentioned by their reps, I didn't know we are such a poor nation dying of hunger that some random company from Singapore will act like our Godfather, the fact is they came to India sniffing big bucks, to improve their own ifestyle. They better treat us with respect as we are equal partners who have invested our time, energy and money, exploited our contacts to make it what it is today. To top it all most of the surveys are wrong so they will throw up wrong data, I have been in market research for 15 years never have I seen such surveys. They are not doing us a favour by paying us, every company you invest in gives you return on investment as per their company policy.

1) How does SpeakAsia Online (SOA) manage to distribute INR 50/- for 1 USD, when the USD is trading @ INR 44.84/-?

2) SOA charges INR 11,000/- for a new subscription. They also charge INR 11,000/- for subscription renewal - that's a total of INR 22,000/-. Then they disburse INR 1,000/- (~ USD 20/-) per survey. 52 weeks of survey in a year = INR 52,000/-. Reduce the subscription investments and you are left with INR 30,000/-. Bank charges are 3% or USD 7.5/-, whichever is higher.
Technically, they are giving back in bits and peices what they take from us as a lump-sum. So what's the big-deal about this entire business?

3) Profits for a panelist begin to come in (in the form of binary income) only after the panelist makes a member under him/her. This is MLM - multiple level marketing. Its math done on paper gives glorious figures... Makes it look like a perpetual money-minting machine! But it's finally perpetual. Real machinery has some amount of friction... and this real-looking perpetual machinery will grind to a hault due to the latent friction it develops!

4) The future of this business idea is just like the recession which was engineered in 2007-2008!

Yet some points are good of prooving Speakasiaonline as a fraud

May be this company is fraud.
My point of view is different

Why company use MCAFEE security as it charges high amount to the website.
Point is , if this is fraud then no use of MCAFEE reputable security

Why this work with TRAI regulation that no company promotion will be send to DND services before 9 PM.
Point is , if this has to collect money and run away, then why work under regulation of TRAI

Company use support call for payment related queries, promotion schemes, joining procedure
No need of this , as people is directly joining by upline members .

Company is opening an office in MUMBAI.
No need if he has to run away

Company is showing legal proofs online.
Point is , Not even a single MLM company i know which show so much of proof.

Company is been accredited by ACRA certificate of good standing.
No need to get this certificate as if he is fraud.

Now Think in logical way, if company id fraud(may be) then no need to get these certificates.

Now some will raise the point as, this will all be done to lure the people.

But think in another way, INDIA is a big market, MAX Forex is not run away from india, yet its MLM and investment company. They are still operated in America. Yet they do business as investing indian money in foreign companies, Govt make the charges high( Good step taken by GOV), so Max Forex has to close the business.

Now i know, some ultra advance thinkers will comment on this also.
Thanks for reading

JSW steel production up by 8% in H1

New Delhi: JSW Steel has registered an 8% growth in crude steel production in the first half of the FY11at 3.14 million tonnes (mt) as compared to the corresponding period last year, reports PTI.

The company said in a statement today that production of flat steel products-used primarily by the automobile industry-increased by 32% to 2.36 mt in April-September 2010, compared to that in the corresponding period last year.

The output of long steel products for infrastructure and construction companies also jumped by 44% to 0.57 mt in the first half of the year, from that in the corresponding period a year ago.

"The company has started generation of power at its 300mw captive power plant and heating of two blocks out of four blocks of Coke Oven-4, in the 10mtpa (million tonnes per annum) expansion project at Vijayanagar works in Karnataka," the statement said. The Vijaynagar unit has a capacity of 6.8 mt and the expansion is likely to be completed by the first quarter of 2011.


Friday Closing Report: Between a stock and a hard place

Global economic concerns and pressures from institutional investors led the Indian market lower for the second day in a row. The recent rally was due for a correction and investors made use of the opportunity to book profits.

The market opened sideways in the absence of supportive global cues. It touched an early high but slipped into the negative terrain amid choppy trade. The indices emerged above the neutral line in mid-morning trade only to slip once again on profit booking after the recent rally. The picture turned bleaker in the post-noon session with the market touching its intraday low. It pared some of the losses and closed marginally lower, down for the second day in a row.

The Sensex closed 65.06 points (0.32%) lower at 20,250. The index swung between a high-low of 20,409 and 20,145, respectively. The Nifty settled at 6,103, down 16.85 points (0.28%), after touching a high of 6,148 and 6,067 during trade today.

The losers outnumbered the gainers in today’s session. The Sensex ended with 20 decliners against 10 gainers and the Nifty had 31 stocks in the red compared to 19 on the advancing side. Among the broader indices, the BSE Mid-cap index declined 0.47% and the BSE Mid-cap index shed 0.28%.

The top performers on the Sensex were Cipla (up 1.74%), Hindalco Industries (up 1.32%), Reliance Communications (RCom) (up 1.26%), Wipro (up 0.98%) and Reliance Industries (RIL) (up 0.94%). The main losers on the index were Tata Steel (down 3.48%), Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) (down 2.74%), Jaiprakash Associates (down 2.30%), Tata Motors (down 1.90%) and Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) (down 1.66%).

The sectoral gainers included BSE Healthcare (HC) (up 0.82%), BSE IT (up 0.37%) and BSE Oil & Gas (up 0.22%). BSE Metal (down 1.49%), BSE Auto (down 1.30%) and BSE Consumer Durables (down 1.08%).

Domestic passenger car sales jumped by 30.38% to 1,69,082 units in September, compared to 1,29,684 units in the corresponding month last year. This was the best performance by any category in the auto sector last month.

According to numbers from the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) released today, total vehicle sales across all categories registered a growth of 21.63% at 13,29,086 units in September, as against 10,92,687 units in the month a year ago.

Asian markets closed mostly in the red on concerns about corporate earnings. However, Chinese and Hong Kong markets ended on a positive note following news that Moody’s Investor Services is likely to upgrade China’s government bond rating. However, caution prevailed ahead of the US jobs data to be released later today.

The Jakarta Composite tanked 1.09%, Nikkei 225 tumble 0.99%, Straits Times declined 0.42%, Seoul Composite was down 0.20% and Taiwan Weighted shed 0.48%. On the brighter side, Shanghai Composite jumped 3.13% Hang Seng added 0.26%.

Union finance minister Pranab Mukherjee is hopeful that the steps taken by the government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) would bring inflation down to 6% by the end of this financial year.

The finance minister expressed his concern over inflationary pressures on food items. "We have taken steps to improve the supply side by easing import of food items that are in short supply," he said. Mr Mukherjee is in Washington for the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

The US market closed lower on Thursday on concerns that corporate earnings might not match analysts’ expectations and monthly jobs data, due later today, might disappoint. Meanwhile, initial jobless claims fell by 11,000 to 445,000 in the week ended 2nd October, the fewest since 10th July. On the corporate front, Alcoa Inc., the biggest US aluminium producer, reported third-quarter profit excluding certain items of 9 cents a share. The stock slipped 1.4% before the results were released.

The Dow fell 19.07 points (0.17%) to 10,948. The S&P 500 dipped 1.91 points (0.16%) to 1,158.On the other hand, the Nasdaq added 3.01 points (0.13%) to 2,383.

Buying by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) was almost negated by selling by domestic institutional investors (DIIs) yesterday. FIIs were net buyers of stocks worth Rs1,183 crore while DIIs were net sellers of equities worth Rs1,193 crore.

DIIs selling is aggressive but party has been started by FIIs ETFs they will encourage downside to be aggressive buyers again at one stroke.They sense the Govt view and till current A/C situation does not improve FIIs are going to stay.Option writers to be beware again.Now strategies may be formulated around 15 oct when results start pouring in.
