Saya sedang dig out email saya untuk mencari sample recommendation letter yang pernah saya tulis/terima untuk satu tujuan yang saya akan kongsikan tahun depan. Saya terjumpa emel ini.

I have order online about the promotion package XXX and YYY. But the bank detail in the invoice is not the company name? Why the payee name and company name are different?

Our response:

Hi Mr Fu,

Mr Sabri is our founder.

Our company was started without any outside investor and using only Mr Sabri own capital in his dorm room 2 years ago. He has since graduated with a degree in Information System specializing in Ecommerce from Universiti Teknologi Petronas, one of the nation premier university.

Banks in Malaysia require reference from existing customer who have a current account at the respective branch before they will agree to allow us to open a current account there.

Being a young entrepeneur, it is hard for Mr Sabri to find the right connection who will be willing to referee for him. And, he don’t believe doing business based on whom you know. He is an advocate of doing business based on merit so he decided if he cannot open a current bank account, he will use normal savings account. Small matter like this will not stop him.

That’s the reason behind it.

We understand if you find this amateurish and decided to choose another hosting company. We have answered similar questions before. 🙂

In case you want to go with hosting company that have their own bank account number; Please check the #1 hosting company in Malaysia:

Bila saya baca balik, wah… mantap juga jawapan kami… :p (oh ya, jawapan tersebut “match” dengan harga item yang dibeli. Ada situasi di mana saya sanggup sahaja tebalkan muka untuk menyusahkan dan meminta bantuan rakan-rakan saya yang lebih “senior” untuk menjadi referee. Ia fleksible. Customer can be right. In certain cases sahajalah. :p )

Ada orang skeptikal dengan bisnes yang dilakukan oleh orang muda. Terutamanya orang tua yang dah biasa deal dengan birokrasi dalam perniagaan. Sebahagian dari reputasi buruk tersebut memang salah sendiri. Tapi apa pun, ia kenangan yang manis dan pengalaman yang membuktikan tidak ada alasan untuk tidak berjaya sebenarnya jika kita tidak mencuba! 🙂
