    Becareful: MobileKu.com is a scam?

    Anybody heard of MobileKu.com or is an agent of theirs?

    MobileKu.com sells ringtones, mobile phone logos and the sort and recruits webmasters to help them sell their services.

    Upon checking their website, there are many "red flags" that raised my suspicion as to the validity of the company (MobileKu.com and SMSJet) and their service.

    None of their contact forms work, no company address, no phone number or any contact information available whatsoever.

    When I was accepted as their agent, they even forged their email address using support@site.com. Hello....?? Thank you for waring me about the incoming scam.

    I believe they are scamming webmasters to help sell their service. They avoid revealing their identity and hide any contact information so that they can get away without paying a single cents to all the webmasters. I don't know what happen to all those poor customers.

    If you are an agent to MobileKu.com, can you describe your experience with them? How do you contact them? Do they actually pay? Is it a real company and business even?

    I am going to stop promoting this company before I make thousands of ringgit for them and end up not being paid a single cents...

    BTW, how can we know if a company really have a genuine MSC status? SMSJET is provided by this company http://nextnationnet.com/ which claims they have MSC status. But they contact form is not working either.

    Correct me if I am wrong. Cheers.

    Can you answer the issues I mentioned openly please (so that I don't have to repeat them if I were to PM you) for everybody's benefit. Please don't narrow it down to the non-working contact form only.

    I am sure there are many webmaster out there who feels cheated and I am talking on their behalf.

    A valid and responsible company should not do what mobileku.com is doing right now. Very sad and it will only jeopradise your "standings" in the community. What is MobileKu.com trying to hide?

    I doubt this is a correct address too. Look at the tel/phone number.

    On the agent lounge it says


    *Note: Telcos payment is 60-90 days. MK will pay agents within 7 days as soon as we received telcos' payment. Beware that there are 15%-30% report error or difference as provided by each telco.
    Why can't you fix this error? Do you mean that we will be paid 15% to 30% less each time and you expect us to accept this without question? Passing the blame to the telco is not the right way to tackle this issue.

    Why do I feel like I am cheated?

    If you are running your program in the US, there will definitley be an uproar in the webmaster community.

    Please also read my comment about ekawan.com here:

    BTW, your contact form is still not working. It says

    Bad Referrer - Access Denied
    The form that is trying to use this program resides at: , which is not allowed to access this cgi script.
    Sorry!
    How convenient. Even after one of the employer knows about the issue. It seems that there's no sense of urgency to fix this error. Well, there goes all my money..

    I can only imagine the frustration of webmasters trying to get their money from you but unable to initiate any contact because you avoid them.

    I repeat, your contact form has not been working for a very-very long time. I guess I am really the first person to highlight this on the Internet, not the first person to encounter this problem. Please don't distort that fact. Why do you ban my IP address if I am already accepted into the program?

    Where is MobileKu.com email address? They should provide an alternative, what? support@site.com? Sorry, it sounds like a joke to me.

    I repeat: This is you chance to improve your program, prove your commitment to the webmaster community and set the record straight.

    Exclamation mobileku the only company who pay money

    Hi all. People don't want to tell address maybe their ISP register that way. Maybe they are small company run by few student out of universiti? Important is, the service is good and good payment.

    I am not sure how many people use mobileku.com agent service but me and 3 of my friends own Malay forums and my website earns RM50-RM200 a month since 1 year ago. Initially there are 10%-20% changes which is normal la consider Malaysia telco provide bad service, but surprisingly last 6 months payment is 100%! One thing I don't like is the payment have to "ask". Maybe my cheque is too small

    Believe or not, I actually try many other services trying to sell my own ringtone and ALL DON'T PAY MONEY! Make it worst average give me 50%-70% changes from what I read on statistic . Here are some services you can try your luck:

    macrokiosk
    nextnationnet
    mobileexec
    aknebuzz
    mesranet

    After testing, I just rather use mobileku.com service. Design not perfect but allow me to change the skin and have many new ringtone. Most important I do get my cheque.

    The form I just tested, it works. I haven't try it for some time since December, maybe they fixed already.

    Maybe you want to help this mobileku webmaster. Think he's too busy. Hope he spend some time process my RM50 cheque.

    I think you are still new in selling sms ringtone. After 1 year testing out many services (read my last message), you will know 15%-30% changes is actually IMPOSSIBLY GOOD. Usually for sms can have 70% error.

    About your attitute asking the webmaster address is outragous. I think there is a "he" and a "she", 2 person only company, like I said (last message), people don't want you to disturb them. Could be working from home. But as long as service is good and payment is good, why you want the address? Maybe she's shy, so what? She pays.

    If so many webmaster use the service for so long, don't think you are the only smart person "not cheated". Just my 2 sen.

    Also I find it strange is, mobileku could be using sms gateway nextnationnet.com service, so it's not actually their service. I ask b4 to run my own sms service but didn't try. You may want to contact them if you want to look for "address".

    Yes I am new to selling ringtones, but I am not new to Internet marketing

    About your attitute asking the webmaster address is outragous. I think there is a "he" and a "she", 2 person only company, like I said (last message), people don't want you to disturb them. Could be working from home. But as long as service is good and payment is good, why you want the address? Maybe she's shy, so what? She pays.
    Obviously you are still a very new to Internet marketing. Well I don't want to waste my time explaining the reason to you. Sorry. Please read my original message carefully to get what I meant.

    By the way, I think you are one of those who are easily lured into Internet scam. If I have you, I'll be so happy. Live and learn my friend, live and learn.


    If so many webmaster use the service for so long, don't think you are the only smart person "not cheated". Just my 2 sen.
    Obvously you are probably one of the people behind mobileku.com

    So what? Is that an excuse? A company is a company. Please read my original message . To get what I meant.

    I am not sure how many people use mobileku.com agent service but me and 3 of my friends own Malay forums and my website earns RM50-RM200 a month since 1 year ago. Initially there are 10%-20% changes which is normal la consider Malaysia telco provide bad service, but surprisingly last 6 months payment is 100%! One thing I don't like is the payment have to "ask". Maybe my cheque is too small
    Haven't you learned your lesson yet? Let me put things in prespective, by the way, I am not trying to show off but, earning thousands monthly through this service is not impossble for me. So you know what kind of money you are talking about. FYI, I've been cheated RM4000 too from one company (that's a monthly income). Not RM50, or RM200, so you know the standard I am looking for. Should I beg for my money?

    All I am saying is, they are obligated to provide another avenue for webmaster to contact them. Don't you even get that?

    Why wouldn't they? because she is shy? Because their ISP hide their address? Because he is a student? Because they are small companies? What are you talking about? .

    Believe or not, I actually try many other services trying to sell my own ringtone and ALL DON'T PAY MONEY! Make it worst average give me 50%-70% changes from what I read on statistic . Here are some services you can try your luck:

    macrokiosk
    nextnationnet
    mobileexec
    aknebuzz
    mesranet

    Have you noticed why so many US programs refuse to accept Malaysian webmaster? CJ.com, Befree.com, clickbank.com etc ?

    If you expect a low standard of service, then that what you'll get. Only low quality companies accept Malaysian webmasters, looks like it.

    If you are willing to deal with company who hide everything (not even a valid email address provided) then I wish you luck. The standard of Internet marketing in Malaysia is very low. Even the webmasters do not know their rights. There's no designated term of service, no rules, no regulations, if you got cheated, so be it.

    Good for you if it works for you. Anyway, professionalsm is what I am looking for.

    If you think about it, may be they are trying to avoid paying royalties to the musician.

    I hope they read this thread and brave enough to explain things openly to show their commitment and honesty.
