International Technogical Firm are kick out of Chinese administration like Apple

Tim Cook diplomacy with the Chinese authorities was not enough: Apple and many other technology US companies were removed from the list of providers suppliers of computer equipment for the Chinese government.

drastic measures

These drastic measures were expected, China has thoroughly reviewed its equipment from the Snowden case, the aim being to prevent hidden backdoors in smartphones / tablets / laptops allow the NSA to spy discreetly the country’s authorities. Recent statements by head of the NSA, not really “diplomatic” and justifying the use of backdoors (backdoors), could only push China to speed up away American equipment. Chinese Minister Tim Cook Apple Watch Tim Cook and Chinese Minister in charge of Internet security Intel, Cisco, McAfee, and in fact almost all the “big” US software manufacturers or suppliers are blacklisted hardware controls for administrations “sensitive”, which for once is very likely to annoy officiating Intelligence US who might be the mothball the thundering declarations about the benefits of backdoors or control “Big Data of” personal data (the name of the fight against terrorism, of course).

Fake Ads on Wechat

WeChat the chinese most popular instant messaging service in China, is likely to lose its luster as users complain of being bombarded with misleading advertisements and information overload.

Fake adverstisment

The situation came to public attention when a business account set false advertisements on “Moments”, one of the main functions integrated in WeChat which allows users to upload photos and share their daily lives by texts.

On Monday, authorities in Chongqing broke a case in which a “travel agency” has told his followers on WeChat to “Like” its ads to win a free Hong Kong and Macau trip, which was later proved be misleading.

HR nightmare

Where?

Similar cases were reported in the provinces of Guangdong, Sichuan, Shaanxi and Jiangsu of unscrupulous businessmen trying to attract customers with promotions for coveted items, they have failed to deliver.

WeChat, developed by the Internet giant Tencent, allows people to send text, photos, videos and voice messages on mobile phones. The application won a legion of fans in China thanks to its convenience, to reach 600 million users since its launch in 2011.

With fake ads, the information on the application overload is causing some users want to escape the flood of daily annoyances.

Beijing said he receives “tons of messages” from his colleagues in the focus groups WeChat, even on weekends.

Wei said he spends about an hour a day responding to messages from his colleagues, and to check WeChat every few minutes because the messages from his boss may be among the sea of ​​notifications.

I feel as if I had been kidnapped by WeChat.

Wei is not the only feeling bombarded by the application user. In early February, Huang Zhen, a professor at the Central University of Finance and Economics, has caused a buzz on the Internet when it announced it would abandon all discussion groups WeChat and “try to find some inner peace. ”

Survey about Wechat

In a survey conducted in March by a Shanghai newspaper, two thirds of respondents feeling of being “kidnapped” by WeChat, but most have chosen to put up with the barrage of messages and information.

“The “Moments” section WeChat, for example, has declined in popularity since it became a place for people to either share or advertisements Chicken Soup for the Soul-type items.” view more here

“My WeChat ‘Moments’ are essentially spammed by them every day, which is pretty boring,” a user named WeChat screen “HXfengai” said.

As calls for change mounting WeChat teams must adjust their design of products and services to break the bottleneck and retain users, said Zhang Yi, CEO of iiMedia research.

Zhang said that the development teams WeChat should redouble their efforts to take into account user feedback and try to understand what they really need.

“It is difficult to say how loyal users will remain WeChat, but if the company can make adjustments according to the specific needs of users, it can help keep many users,” he said.

Did you already learn about this ?

 

This is an email of an australian guy who already workt with them ;

My experience with them is that they are a scam. They were quick to negotiate on pricing and volumes. Then they invited me to meet them in Shanghai which I did. They were very pushy trying to set up my hotel at astronomical prices and flights with Emirates at high prices. When I said I could achieve a 50% saving booking my own hotels and flights they were extremely annoyed (as no doubt they make commissions from each provider). I met them at their ‘office’ which later turned out just to be a serviced office. Nothing wrong with that I suppose. Only that they make out and show off by telling you they have 5 offices, drive expensive cars, travel first class etc etc. Anyway, we signed a contract and when I got back to Australia the games started. They wanted money for registration and licensing of the product (even though they told me they had the import licence). They also wanted money for label translations, storage, couriers,etc etc. Then they wanted document after document. I provided everything that they asked for, but they were never satisfied with the documents even after I had the Australian Trade Commission authenticate them, and, I also had the chinese embassy in Australia stamp them. This went on for months and they were never satisfied and then they sent me a bill for consultancy fees would you believe (even though they were the buyer). They had sent me sample documents from other companies they were supposedly importing from. I asked if I could call them for a reference and they told me strictly no as it would be a breach of privacy/confidentiality on the contracts they had. (I did later ring them all, and none of them had ever heard of C2C).

I had had enough of them by this stage.

Then I got a call from the trade commission in Beijing as I had written to them to check out the company. It took them a while to get back to me but they told me they could not find any information on C2C and that the tax registration numbers I gave them to check were not real. Too little too late. I lost about $5000 and feel lucky it was only this much. The trade commission then gave my details to another company that had approached them also from Australia. I met with the owner and he told me about his experience with them. It was exactly the same as mine only that he lost a lot more money with them. They play the game to keep you interested and slowly but surely they will ask you for money, and then ask you for more. If you ask questions they tell you they are going to cancel your contract and become extremely rude and treat you as though you are ignorant. Jessica Xia was the worst. She was particularly arrogant and rude. When I finally got a hold of Alex and asked him to refund my money, he was so rude and said it wasn’t his problem as he isnt the owner! Some CEO! They could not complete on the contract they signed with me.

Since posting my warning on LinkedIn, I have heard from quite a number of companies who have had the same experience as me, and from others like you who are considering the options. In my opinion they are scammers and my advice to you is to take caution when dealing with them. China is a big market and certainly worth some effort to try and get a foot hold. However, people like C2C use this to their advantage to attract people like us who want to get in there. You should also know that when I exposed them on LinkedIn, they then decided to target me and post fake information about me saying I was trying to blackmail them and that my company was fake etc etc. They created fake people/profiles to support their views. I think most people could see through their lies, but no doubt some will wonder about my side of things. You will note that the majority of people in their connections are other ‘c2c staff’. You will note that all the recommendations are form other ‘c2c staff’. Its all part of their game to give the impression that they are bigger than what they actually are. As for me, my company is very much real and I am an open book and can prove all that I have said should anyone wish to look.
