Yesterday one of my relative was so excited that he got a job offer from a International Company. He was so sure that it’s 100% legitimate & he instantly thought that he was going to QATAR to have a job of $1100/month. How can you believe that a sudden email can offer you a job that’ll pay this amount of money! I was suspicious & was searching whether it was a scam or not! I found out at last that it is actually a cheating!
How this scam starts:
You will get an EMAIL like this (image):
The attached doc will look like this after opening
You’ll get a SMS along with the email. I don’t actually know how they got the mobile number. But they’ll send you a SMS to make you believe that it’s legit. The SMS will look like this.
From a mobile number: 01686749425 may change (I got the SMS from this number).
DEAR CANDIDATE I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT YOU HAD GOT A JOB OFFER LETTER. JUNIOR ADMIN OFFICER FOR UAE… FROM CANADIAN FIRM CORAL LTD.. [email protected] PLEASE CHECK YOUR ATTACHED FILE IN YOUR EMAIL SHOULD BE INBOX/SPAM/DRAFT/OR JUNK PLS CALL US OFFER LETTER HELP LINE NUMBER 01839841109 TODAY WEDNESDAY 1PM TO WITHIN 5PM CONFIRM YOUR OFFER ID CODE+ACTIVE YOUR FILE & TAKE YOUR MEDICAL SCHEDULE COZ IF YOU ARE NOT CONFIRM WE ARE REPLACE FILE THANKS BYE REGARDS BM INTERNATIONAL
It’ll ask you to call a Banglalink number to contact about the Medical Report. Thank GOD that the number was off! If it wasn’t off my relative was going to get into this huge cheating! It asked me to call the number & have an appointment of health report with the man.
This is a scam/Cheating/fraud JOB offer from Coral LTD. SINCE 2012
I called the hotline but I’m glad none picked up. But after doing some research, I found that others who called the number was linked to a speaking female assistant.
I found out who owns this domain. It seems like one Bangladeshi (Md Jashim Uddin) own this company domain.
How this can be possible? An International Company’s Official Website is own by a Bangladeshi who lives in United Kingdom? Isn’t that ridiculous? Hence, if it claims that they are a Canadian company, they are totally cheating!
I blurred the address of UK as he (Md Jashim Uddin) may not know , his friends in Bangladesh (may be) doing fraud with the domain registered under his name .
This domain ( Coral LTD.) http://coralltd.ca/ is registered on (2012/06/25) June 25 2012 means three and half months ago.
may be for fraud
I called the help line number again 01839841109 and the number 01686749425 all of them were switched off. Why those were switched off if they were professional company?
I found the contact us page of the webpage. There was a name David Rozario, HR. Manager, Coral Ltd. 808-5079, Lawrence Ave SCARBOROUGH, Canada, M1V2S8
Have you seen any company before which provides its HR manager contact number so openly? This HR manager is also the signee of the offer letter. Therefore, the frauds used this name here.
Email Reply from their Contact Email
When I sent a mail to their email at [email protected] my gmail said the email cannot be sent. There was some problem with their inbox. So I was pretty confirmed that it was fake!
Finally I found:
Many people are getting this type of mail from April 2012 in different name.
The address is fake also!
Some people already lost their money!
(I got some real help while writing this post from Anexpertbd’s this post. I used some of their images in this post. Some of the images are mine.)
I really understand that people really want to be the first to get the latest Apple product. However, what I don’t understand is if they don’t mind waiting why not hold on for a few more months and grab much more powerful Chinese phones?
The Xiaomi Mi-2 will be on sale from next month but before you get super excited and start filling in pre-orders, there are 2 points I would like to mention:
The pre-orders are open to customers in China only.
Even in China, people will have to wait 1/2 months to get hands on one!
Nevertheless, don’t worry as international resellers will offer them (like Realpricesfromchina.com)
But this article is about waiting, and then blowing the iPhone 5 out of the water! Hence, let’s see what we get with the Xiaomi Mi-2.
Xiaomi MI-2 specification
The Xiaomi MI-2 is powered by the stunning Qualcomm Snapdragon 8064 CPU quad-core chip clocked at 1.5ghz and gets a mind blowing 2GB RAM. That’s it that’s all you need this phone is awesome. Buy one!
Ok, ok more details. The MI-2 also has a fantastic screen measuring 4.3 inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and 342PPI (That’s more PPI than Retina/Super Amoled Plus/Any Display). Besides, the cameras’ are amazing on the Xiaomi MI-2 too! With the rear being an 8 mega-pixel unit with 28mm wide angle lens! (Just Apple gives on iPhone 4S) & rear one being 2 mega-pixel. What’s more both the front and rear cameras can capture 1080 video.
Who doesn’t want a low-cost phone, with a rocking a unique style and with latest Android OS that can kill iPhone 4S/iPhone 5 specification?
Hence, now we have your interest in the prospect of buying a Chinese Android phone. Well here is the Cheapest Android Dual Core phones that costs around $150. Previously we covered Motorola Atrix 4G in our Android coverage.
Beidou Little Pepper
First, let me tell you first! It is made by Beidou,NOT Baidu!Beidou, if you have never heard of them, they are a Chinese e-seller of electronics who have decided to get involved with this Android phone business.
The Little Pepper is Beidou’s first Android phone, and it is actually the cheapest model here and in fact the cheapest quad-core (yeah 4 CORE!) Android phone in the world!
Beidou Little Pepper Specifications
I really want you to see just how much of an amazing bargain this phone is first!
The screen on the quad-core Little Pepper is larger. It looks almost HTC One X’s size of 4.65 inches and enjoys an improved resolution of 1280×720 pixels.
The upgrades don’t stop there. Moreover, the quad-core Chinese phone also gets an 8 mega-pixel rear camera which is a significant upgrade over the dual-core’s 5 mega pixel model.
CPU+Graphics+RAM of Quad-Core Little Pepper
The quad-core Beidou Little Pepper uses a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core CPU clocked at a very impressive 1.5ghz. The Little Pepper isn’t just the cheapest quad-core phone but also one of the most powerful!

Why Should I buy the Beidou Little Pepper?
It’s the cheapest quad-core phone in the world and features a better specification than the iPhone 4S!! Plus’s it really is cheap!
How much is the Little Pepper Chinese Phone?
I couldn’t control myself after seeing! the price of the Little Pepper. It is selling on an amazing 699 Yuan ($156)!! It’s so cheap you could buy 4 Little Peppers for the same price as iPhone5.
How can I buy it now?
That’s the sad part! You can’t buy it globally! It’s made for China. The targeted customers are also Chinese. So the Android language is basically Chinese. But it has English built in. Maybe, it doesn’t have Playstore. They use their own Chinese version of Playstore. Though we are not sure about it. However, if anyone wants to give it a shot, they can look here.
First of all let me clear that it is a movie review post. (If you are looking for download links it’s not the site)
Anyways, let’s move on to the topic. The Terminal is a 2004 film from Tom Hanks, directed by the guru Steven Spielberg. It is about a man trapped in a terminal at New York Airport, when he is denied entry into the United States and at the same time cannot return to his native country, Krakozhia. He was in a situation that neither he can go back to Krakozhia nor he could enter New York.
My Review of The Terminal
At first when I decided to watch the movie, I wasn’t that much interested. I thought it would be a so-so movie. But as the story goes on, the movie becomes more interesting. it shows how a life can be when one catch situations like these. He made his own world in a New York terminal. He makes his friends, colleagues-a new family there.
Furthermore, he meets his crush, Amelie. He meets flight attendant Amelia Warren (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who asks him to have a dinner, but he tries to earn money so that he can ask Amelia out instead. He finally gets an off-the-books job as a construction worker at the airport earning $19 an hour (more money than Dixon makes ). Gradually, he also learns to speak fluent English.
Conclusion: Why are you still waiting man? Run & watch it now if you haven’t watched it yet!
Meeting expectation & meeting money, the two main factors to buy a cell phone. In this modern era, smartphone has become an integral part of our life. Many think that we are now in a post PC world (I don’t yet think so!). However, buying a smartphone needs a lot of homework (if your budget is low).
When I was thinking to buy an smartphone, the first & foremost thing I had to think that I need to get an handset that’ll support for the next 1/1.5 years. However, I researched pretty much before buying & on that time within my budget Motorola Atrix 4G was the best budget phone. So I made the choice & bought my first smartphone from Motorola. I say after using nearly 7 months, I had made a great decision to buy this set! (Think! I’m telling this when there is Lumia 900, S2, S3, One X already released & Lumia 920, iPhone 5 in the horizon). I’ll tell you why this Atrix 4G still kicking ass!
Motorola Atrix 4G: Killer configuration with fingerprint reader
Remember when the Atrix 4G was launched in CES with the Dual Core processor? Man it’s the first Android that packs Dual Core processor! Just like S3 packed quad core for the first time! On that time, nearly every major reviewers like phonedog, phonearena, engadget, cnet – everyone took Atrix 4G pretty seriously wrote their review! Surprisingly, each one of them gave 4.0+ stars. You should’ve known already that it’s one of the best smartphone, ever Motorola produced!
Let me write why it has so killer configuration! 4″ LED qHD display (surely not as bright & saturated as Apple’s Retina or Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus. However, it really doesn’t matter in normal light. That only matters when you are in sunlight), dual core 1gHz processor (it does everything you throw! Besides, dual core 1gHZ still the standard for many company), NVIDIA tegra graphics, 5 megapixel camera and the most importantly the big Lithium Polymer 1950mAh battery. It is really powerful.
Atrix 4G Spec: Still Kicking Ass
You can see the specs at GSMArena. You’d know after seeing the specs that it’s pretty much still one of the high end phone in the market. But it doesn’t get the limelight. People really forget when one smartphone gets a bit older. When the major sites forgot about the set, the people who is going to buy, they just don’t know that Motorola has a set like this & still this is so cheap & acts like high end phone.
Battery of Atrix 4G: Best still!
One of the best thing of Atrix is it’s battery. Motorola’s brand new announced Razr M, Razr HD, Razr – (except the Maxx series) all has the battery around 2000-2100 mAh. They advertise it as ‘Best Battery Life on Android’. Just think a 2010 set has 1950mAh battery on board. Lack of 50mAh will not be a deal breaker for you.
Best Budget Android Smartphone around $200 & Best Budget Android Phone around $300
(Still on 2012..Probably will be on 2013 too)
You’ll ask me why this set is still the best budget Android Smartphone both in $200 & $300. Because if you take the dock it’ll cost $70 more. If you don’t take it (which I did) the set will cost you only around $200. Think just 200 bucks, 16000 taka or 11000 rupee can give you one of the best Android high end set that’ll be comparable to S2, S3, One X, iPhones & Lumias. Can you think that?
You can buy Motorola Atrix 4G Unlocked for nearly $200 on Amazon. Get it if you want a cheap set that’ll perform like the flagships.

If yes, then read on! You are having the exact same issue that I was having last night! My drive label changed to NOKIA & it was not changing.
Since, I use Windows 8 & update regularly my Windows Defender, I couldn’t think that I was virus affected. However, I searched both in Google & Bing to solve the problem but there wasn’t any solve online. So I started my work to fix it.
Drive Label Changed To Nokia? Not Changing?
Yeah! That’s what happened with me.
Solve ‘NOKIA’ Drive Label Not Changing Problem!
The issue was created by some information placed in System Volume Information of that drive. Since Windows doesn’t allow to delete that drive, you have to download any Linux distro, boot it live & go to each drive of yours & you have to delete 3 folders (including autorun.inf if any).
Comodo Dragon is a Web Browser built by Comodo, the well-known company that is serving Comodo Firewall, Comodo Internet Security & other security tools for a long time.
Why Comodo Dragon?
Comodo Dragon is just based on Chromium Open Source Project (Chromium is the source which on Google Chrome is based) If you are a Google Chrome user, then you certainly going to like it. Because Comodo Dragon looks & feels just like our well known Google Chrome. Comodo Dragon eliminates Chrome’s usage tracking and some other potentially privacy-compromising features, and provides additional security measures, such as indicating the authenticity and relative strength of a website’s SSL certificate. I’ll be reviewing Comodo Dragon 21.1 which is based on Chromium 21.xxx It’s apparent that Comodo Dragon runs on an out dated version. At the time of writing this article, current stable version of Google Chrome is 22.xxx I don’t blame Comodo for this. It’s tough to catch up with Google’s ultra frequent updates, but still they are doing good job in updating Comodo Dragon as often as possible. For most of the part, both Comodo Dragon and Chrome are almost most same, except for few features. Especially, for Privacy and security features.
(A screenshot of Comodo Dragon 21 on Windows 8)
Why You’ll Use Comodo Dragon?
The answer is simple. To have a better privacy. Comodo Dragon itself says it has these 4 unique features over Chrome:
Secure browsing with no crashes
Lightning fast with low PC resources
Easy to start with
Convenient and flexible plugins
The first two is pretty important to me. Surely, Chrome is lightening fast since it’s birth. But Chrome sometimes cause crashes. Besides, Chrome cannot run with low PC resources. Furthermore, Chrome’s usage tracking and some other potentially privacy-compromising features can be ignored with this browser. As Comodo Dragon built right from the Chromium Open Source project, it features the first two essential features.
Chrome Windows 8 Compatibility Issue
I was having some issues with Chrome lately with Windows 8. Chrome hangs, loads pages for eternity, Aw Snap & Grr..! I recently wrote a post ‘How To Solve Chrome Issue on Windows 8’ issue, It solved mine for the last week but Chrome was behaving strange since the Chrome 23 update (Yeah I run the dev build). The same page loading issue was tempting me. Then I found out this Comodo Dragon.
Comodo Dragon – Wrap Up
In a nutshell Comodo Dragon is a
A Chromium technology-based Browser that offers you all of Chrome’s features PLUS the unparalleled level of security and privacy you only get from Comodo. Including a greater level of privacy than Chromium technology offers.
First of all we should clear that its not only you! The latest release of Chrome does shitty thing. We all were suffering from this weird issue.
How to solve Chrome slow loading issue?
The recent Chrome update which is 21.0.1180.79 m does this thing. I thought what is wrong recently because more than 50% of websites I visited are loading very slow, In fact, sometimes they are not being loaded at all. Today, I finally realized that the problem is with Google Chrome browser because when I tried surfing using Firefox, they can be loaded in seconds. Of course, I am a Google Chrome lover & user since the birth of Chrome, so I wouldn’t switch my default browser just because of this. Then, I started to play around with Chrome’s preferences until I finally found a fix.
The Issue is being created by DNS Pre Fetching Feature
How to fix DNS Issue on Chrome?
For old version of Chrome, the setting is located at Preferences > Under The Hood.
For newer version of Chrome, the setting is located at Settings > Show Advanced Settings > Privacy
Now, there is a checkbox named “Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance” or “Predict network actions to improve page load performance“. Or similar.
Everyone, including me would have ticked this checkbox because it seems to bring only benefits and it sounds promising. However, it is not the case here, while I still cannot explain why this is happening, just untick the checkbox to bring your Chrome back to its speedy glory.
In my Google Chrome for Windows 8, the settings is actually called “Predict network actions to improve page load performance“. Therefore, just untick any similar checkbox.
Hope this helps.
Update: 1 (21-Aug-2012)
If the above method doesn’t work you can do another workaround. Hope that’ll work. (Worked for me atleast).
1) Update to the latest Chrome.
2) Press Windows Key+Q
3) Write ‘Allow an app through Windows Defender’
4) Click ‘Change Settings‘
5) Select ‘Allow another app’
6) Find the path of Chrome. If you don’t know where is it then go to this location
