The Internet is like the fisherman's net

Like the fisherman's net, the internet is woven and twisted. When you are surfing the internet, you are just a fish swimming in a net.

How to be the fish that got away? When you come across a product online that promises miracle, money back guarantee, etc, take your time, be curious, surf and seek more information online. Delay your buying decision even if the offer will end in 10 minutes... they are desperate, not you.

, a product called 'ArthroNeo' has popped up in many ad space. It promises to cure/get rid of arthritis and osteochondrosis in a month. A testimonial from a fella named Axel Finch from London who used to work in Krompachy telling his story of how ArthroNeo has cured him. In the story, there are other 'supporting characters', from Igor to Rodrigo. Then, there are the positive comments and feedback at the bottom of the page.

So, what is so fishy about this advert or this product?

Probing further with the keyword 'ArthroNeo', a few other sites appeared. The storyline and photos/images are the same, but the characters' names are different.

Spot the Difference and judge yourself:


Umar must be Axel's clone living in different country.


Or, Umar from Malaysia must be the evil twin of Axel Finch, from London. Both are 62 years old... one worked in Krompachy, a town in Slovakia, the other worked in Miri, a city in Sarawak, Malaysia.

Axel seems to be the stronger of the clones/twins. He can ride a bike for 23 hours nonstop. Umar can only manage 2 to 3 hours.

Even the wife and the grandson had been cloned... swimming in the same water...

Then, there are the positive comments and feedback at the bottom of the page. Dolly the sheep was the first clone in 1996. 21 years later, we are seeing human clones having same joint pain as their Origs.....their original....

Many people love to upload their selfies and photos online. Once uploaded on the net, their faces are officially reusable material by all earthlings, sane or insane, good or bad. Are these people aware that their photos are being stolen and abused?

Be a smart fish, don't be caught in the scammers' net!
