    Everyday one or two freelancer fill my blog contact forum and request guest posting opportunity or something similar businesses. All of them use English names. For an instance Alex, David. But there IP address India, Pakistan or Bangladesh. I know some of the Asian use English name. But each month I receive 30-50 request, but 80% of them use English names. Why do they use fake English names?

    Note!:- I'm also a Asian.

    They pretend to be like English.
    English names are likely to be accepted when compared to Asians.

    English names are more likely to win your vote and raise their perceived value.

    Another reason, sometimes those guys just feel cool if they use English name, it's stupid imo.
    I'm an Asian, I saw lot of ppl use English name in my country, tho most of them can't speak English.
    Sometimes racism is built by themselves. That's sad.

    English names are easy to pronounce and recognize, that's the valid reason.

    They probably don't want to reveal their identity from the first contact. But it can also be that they are perceived as less credible than from ones in developed (English) countries.

    I personally respect those who use their real names and use proper English. There are many of them here and they are well respected.

    I 'm not Asian, but my name is also not latin. I use the equivalent English name of my real name when interacting with people in English because it 's easier and more comfortable (unless of course you enjoy hearing your name in funny accents :D)

    Dude, do you thing I'm a fool cos it's in my user name, so I'm a Jr. VIP here?

    WTF?

    It happens, there are threads with good methods, where you use a girl's name and bank huge, so should we all change out sex to try that method. Then, if it doesn't work. Oh what the F, back again to what you were earlier.

    Don't be rude, but when it comes to taking advantage of while making money, be smart.

    The point is, you're not cheating anyone. If you're then, you're a scammer.

    So, don't comment in such a way, just think before.

    You shold read my first post man, he is talking about that so I replied to him.

    Well say you are in US, you and your friends even don't know Chinese, but you and they both have a Chinese name, you talk to them, "你好,名字" then talk blah blah in English, and you feel it's so cool because you are using a Chinese name.
    Don't you think this is stupid?
