She loves to give away gifts to her nieces and nephew, also to her siblings and parents. She give away some of the stuff that she doesn't use to some of her girlfriends. One time that she is browsing on the internet, online marketing websites caught her attention with all the items that she has not been seeing on the malls when she shops. She orders item from several online shops and it was a success. Time and again, shopping online had also became one of her hobbies. She frequently order from her favorite online shops.

One time, she had spotted a favorite brand of shoes on one of the websites that she saw online. It costs hundreds of dollars but she did not mind the price because it is the design that she is looking for so long time but always goes out of stock on malls. Without second thought she orders the shoes and made payment by sending money to the online seller. Most online shops send the items to their customers via shipment after the customer made a payment. However in this case, the item that she ordered did not reached her after the expected date of delivery so she decided to contact the seller of the item to follow up the item delivery. After several messages sent, she received no reply from the seller and she started to think that she had been scammed. 

True as it is when she have researched the name of the online shop for customer reviews, she found out that there have already been many customers that were victimized by that online seller. She tried to use the payment information of the seller to further seek for a means to locate the person. After doing her research, she got the location where the computer IP address is coming from and from there she reported it to the authority and the person was captured and sued. Unluckily she did not get back her money, but it did serve her a lesson not to trust in anything that she sees instantly and be extra vigilant in any online transactions that she makes (but it did not take her shopaholic syndrome tough, she just prefers to shop more on the malls where she can see the actual item and the seller; although from time to time she still orders items online and do not forget to check and pick the authentic ones.

Business Joint Venture

Some business people find it easier for their business to accumulate or generate more income when they do joint venture with a good apprentice or business. A joint venture in a business can mean a business partner in addition to support finances, or partnership to complement products or marketing strategies, human resources, and other outsourcing.

Engaging in a joint venture is not an easy decision to do. Prior to making this deal, one must weigh the pros and consequences of running business partnership with someone. It may mean setting boundaries, accounting shares and talking out matters with your partner before making decisions. It may also mean possibilities of disagreement on all possible matters.

In deciding for a business joint venture, one must make sure that the business to partner with is stable. This is important to prevent compromise and affect the business in a negative way. You must also be clear on your reason to partner with others - if it would be better to do business stand alone or with someone else. Sometimes, a joint venture is not what you need to sustain your business. You must see every angle before you commit to it.

Also, a joint venture business must require dedication on both parties. It is not something that you will engage in and let the other party do all the necessary move on the business. It must involve the both of you, except if you are willing to lose ownership of your business to the other.

You must also be vigilant on looking up for the accounting stuff, minding the credits and debits of your finances. The most common reason why business partners do not last or succeed is due to financial misunderstanding, so be watchful about this.

Most importantly build strong partnership by building camaraderie with your business partner to make the flow of the business smooth and ungrudging for the both of you.

Anomaly Investigation

Anomaly can happen almost anywhere and in any field. An anomaly is an irregularity that happens out of the normal system observed in an institution or an organization. Any anomaly can rouse disturbance and opposition; thereby any member of an organization can interfere or do something to investigate and file a case to the authorities if proven.

An anomaly maybe rooted in a self-centered interest. A person may engage in an illegal transaction, use influence to create unsolicited alteration or deal behind the knowledge of concerned people.  An anomaly is common in a company, institution, government offices or even a small group of people.

An occurrence of an anomaly happens in three classifications: Insertion, Deletion and Update. Insertion happens when an information or an entity is entered or enclosed anywhere whether in a file, database, or stock of items. It may also be in a form of favor, money or component. Deletion is when information, record, item or money suddenly disappears without any reflection on the records or knowledge of the people concern. Update occurs when there is an uninvited adjustment of records or files that happened whether by insertion or deletion.

A system or records that are appropriately and regularly normalized is less likely to be accessed and done an anomaly. On the other hand, a record is easily altered when records are not organized and unguarded.  When this happens, the company has more problems to solve.

Investigating an anomaly may be a rigorous process. The accused may come in sorts of excuse just to cover up for the crime. Some may even devise a ready counter solution in case that the irregularities have been discovered. However, when a person who files an accusation be vigilant enough, there is no impossibilities that the case will be resolved.

Property Investment Check

Investment can come in many forms. One may invest on pre-need plans, assets, properties or business. However, in investing, if one has not exercise enough precaution, you may have the risk of loosing a lot and worse end up in big debt.

Glenn (not a real name) is a rich businessman who is drawn in investing his hard earned money in different assets. One of his latter investment was buying a land property on one of the towns in his native land. He had just searched this post for sale on the internet and had only visited and transacted on one meeting with the seller then bought it instantly. The land was an in an ideal area and he is thinking of developing it into a big plantation.

Months passed and after the busyness of doing his work and business, he remembered about this land that he bought and started to work all the things as he had initially have in mind for it. He instructed to clean up the whole place. When the time scheduled for the delivery of the planting materials on the place came, he received a call from the local government asking him and telling him about that land that he is developing. He found out that the land is owned by the local government and the land title that was given to him by the person who sold him the land was fake.

Glenn was devastated upon knowing this and could no longer find the whereabouts of the seller of the land. This is just one example of the cases brought about by neglecting thorough check of everything you invest on.  There are government records to check for the authenticity of the property being sold and also, the credibility of every person who will come to you selling anything should also be checked.
