Maybe Mr. Achu is really working for X.com and getting a commission
from the business he brings to them. Sure sounds like it is a bit
more than just "good heartedness". Hmmm ... :)
There are plenty of other e-commerce/on-line banks on the net and
X.com is not one of the more popular ones. So why is he (Mr. Achu)
pushing this one? Only he knows but it sounds like a sales jobs (or
at least that's is the way is it coming across).
People get very skeptical when they fell like they are being "pushed"
into something - especially when m-o-n-e-y is involved.
I think your advice to Mr. Achu is very good and shows your wisdom.
Hopefully we can put this to bed and move onto IT-related topics. I
think we all have a common interest - applications of IT and the Internet
in Africa for ALL Africans. The world will benefit greatly as a consequence.
