OPN Ltd got my attention as it gains popularity here in the Philippines. I visited their site www.opn.com and read the articles in it. They first discussed about how web 2.0 and social marketing is important and trending nowadays. They also present themselves that they are into social media business. But not only that, what intrigues me is that they are also an MLM company. Although they do not directly used the term MLM or Networking they made mention of business opportunity and direct selling. I researched more about this and I found out they are linked to sitetalk unaico and iTel global group. These connections are heavily bombarded with negative attacks in the web. Some the sites I found are http://josephmerlin.hubpages.com/hub/Sitetalk-is-Pure-Scam and this blog http://sitetalk-itel.blogspot.com/ discussed in details the companies and persons behind them. Also, I personally don't like that they compare themselves with facebook and attempts to surpass its success. They are nothing like facebook, they are a MLM company while facebook is a pure social media website that is a far more powerful tool than them for growing your business and is most importantly FREE.
While it is true that they are growing exponentially they are mostly targeting developing countries like Bangladesh and India. It makes me think they are avoiding established cyber laws from 1st world countries because they know they will break it. Another thing is I think that poor people in these developing countries are easy prey when the promise of easy money and get rich quick are the bait.
This article is purely my opinion and views if you wish to agree or disagree with me you are very welcome to comment below.. :)
Is The OPN, Sitetalk unaico, iTel global group scam or not?
