STOMPer einnor warns others against this shop in Sim Lim that charged her friend for 'software installation' without her friend's knowledge. When confronted, the shop owner smugly asked the friend to get a lawyer to sue him.
The STOMPer elaborates:
"Recently, my classmate from China bought 2 Nokia 302 phones from a shop in Sim Lim for 560 SGD.
"The shop told my friend that the phones require a software to work when my friend brings them back to China.
"The owner didn't tell my friend how much the 'software installation' was, so my friend thought that it was free as she is using the phones in China, and so she agreed to the installation.
"In the end, the bill came up to $1410.
"This is obviously a cheating case. And when my friend asked for a refund, the owner said no and proudly asked my friend to find a lawyer and sue him.
"STOMPers, be careful of this shop."
Following this news broadcast by Stomp, Facebook user Doris Winata shared it: "They charged my sis $850 for itouch which cost $450. @_@".
"Yea.. They return 100$ and gave a screen protector. My sis gullible ma"
She cannot confirm that it is the same shop but the shop is definitely in Sim Lim Square.
Victims who have been cheated by any shop should report to the police and CASE so that the scammers will not be able to victimize more people. It is time to uphold the reputation of Sim Lim Square, which is one of the IT heavens in Singapore.
