One of my friend had been scammed when she went to http://www.streetdeal.sg/ to make a purchase. Which have terms and conditions that they would charge a renewal premium of SGD88 once she make the purchase of the item.

 

She just want to buy a water bottle that cost SGD $18 bucks and was shocked to received a charge of SGD $88 bucks for membership in additional of SGD $18 bucks.

Below is the screenshots of the scam

Charged SGD88.jpg

 

Its stated in the terms and conditions. However she did not read the terms and conditions as per her normal online purchase which so far no problem at all until this case surface.

I did an online search and found out many others was also tricked to make purchase for membership without their knowing as they also did not read the terms and conditions.

And want to cancel subscription have to contact them directly. Cannot cancel online. Worst still because the amount had been charged bank can't do anything.

Cannot cancel.jpg
 

Further search online reveal more details on the company.

Company 2.jpg
 

so please beware of

http://www.streetdeal.sg/ and http://www.olaprice.com/ .


Summary, it already scammed more than 200 people.

Lesson learnt, if making any purchase online, better read the terms and conditions carefully before proceed with the payment.

Thanks for sharing, even if you save one person from such anguish, it's good. I've shared with my friends too.

It's times like this (and Jover of SLS infamy) that I wish vigilante justice is meted out, Batman style.

I also just got to know this scam from my friend. Searched online, apparently the scam had been around for quite sometime already. Wonder how come news spread so slow.

 

Hopefully authorities can take action against them.

The clever part is the membership SGD88 is not charged together or immediately after the purchase. It is charged 2 days later, which when they realise it was too late already.

I paid for a dining table in full 2 years back n the company wound up before delivery date.
Friend told me to report to the credit card company under cardholder's dispute n so I did that but was skeptical on what the bank could do since it was a willing buyer, willing seller situation.

To my surprise, I got a full refund after 2 mths. Whilst this a different situation from the scamming one, I think cardholder could report to the bank under cardholder's dispute and I would expect some results because compared to my situation, this really is a dispute as the amount charged was not what the agreed amount was, good luck!!
