    >After its heavy advertisements in some good magazines and a leading newspaper ET Wealth Weekly, I thought its a legal business and I even contemplated joining it.

    But, Thank God, I came to know about the scam.

    There are many more fraud business like online home based jobs, mlm etc.

    Its high time, Govt sets up a Fraud Detection centre to weed out such bogus firms.

    The RBI has issued a circular specifically ordered all banks to freeze the accounts of Speakasia and their likes and also banning banks from remitting any funds outside india on behalf of its customers to Speak asia like organizations. RBI has also warned banks that they would be liable to pay in the event customers lose money in such schemes.
    I guess the banks dont have a choice…
