Any 31-year-old who makes millions, has the titles 'Dato Seri' and 'Dr' precede his name arouses more than my admiration. It stirs my curiosity big time.
I have worked hard my whole life, lived frugally and now at the ripe old age of 65 have accumulated savings sufficient only to continue living frugally for the rest of my retirement years. After a lifetime of sweat and toil, I still don't have a title to my name or millions in my bank account.
I want to know how this Dato Seri Dr Peter Ong Kean Suan did it. How did he amass so much financial wealth at so young an age that he can play philanthropist to the hilt and not feel the pinch? I am talking about donations amounting to RM690,000. Certainly not an amount to scoff at.
This advertorial in The Star, 19 Nov 2013, got me asking 'Who is this Peter Ong Kean Swan'?
Don't you want to learn his secret of generating wealth? Well, I certainly do. I want to learn from this making-money sifu.
Thus began my Google search to find out more about this bigger than life young man who is CEO of Surewin4u. With such a name for a company, how can anyone who invest in it not win? That's probably how this Dato gets folks to part with their money - by convincing them they will make many times more the amount they have invested in Surewin4u!
From Surewin4u website. Except for figures to impress the gullible, few specifics are mentioned. Why is this so?
Basically, this is how the system
works. The company uses the money you have invested (entry point fixed at RM25,000) to gamble on your behalf at the casino. They claim to have devised a system that is guaranteed to beat the odds at the gambling table 100% of the time, and you get a monthly dividend of 8%. They are so confident about their system they even have a refund policy to assure investors they have nothing to lose. This is the carrot that they dangle before potential investors. Those who can see only dollar signs in the carrot and not the beta carotene in it will fall for this scam.
Intrigued by this 'sure-win-for-you' system (scheme? scam?), I decided to investigate further. Guess what turned up? - this picture below of a certain Ong Kean Suan (sans titles) in handcuffs being escorted by the police to the magistrate's court on a charge of impersonating royalty to get room discount at a hotel! The picture is dated 20 March 2013. As far as I know, the company is still operating and still attracting (luring?) investors.
This looks like a direct translation from Malay in the original post dated 20 March, 2013. Eight months later, Ong is back celebrating his birthday in grand style. Is this the same Ong Kean Suan of Surewin4u?
