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

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.

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.
