A NIGHT out to buy a cellphone at Lucky Plaza turned ugly for a Chinese national yesterday.

The kindergarten teacher, who wanted to be known only as Ms Mei, said that the staff of DAB Electronics at the basement of the shopping centre had quoted her $900 for an iPhone 4 without a contract.

However, a staff member rang up an amount of $1,900.

When she asked what the extra $1,000 was for, the man said that $350 was for a repair service, and quoted fees for unlocking her SIM card and cutting her SIM card, a service he said was required in order to use the popular mobile phone.

When she did not agree to the deal, she said the man refused to return the ATM card she had handed him for payment.

Afraid, she called two friends to help her. But the staff did not allow them to leave the building. One of her friends then called the police.

Shop employees denied holding onto the woman's card, and turned aggressive towards a photographer who was there, while the police were present.

Police said they have advised both parties to settle the matter amicably, and they have complied.

Lucky Plaza has always had a bad reputation....but this case seems like they've become real gangsters....refusing to return ATM card, illegal confinement of customers, aggression towards photographer...

Personally prefer to buy phones from big shops like Singtel, Starhub, M1, Courts, Harvey Norman, etc, even for without plan. You get fresh stock of unopened boxes. Whereas, these small shops, the handsets have all been taken out most of the time. The price isn't going to be cheaper anyway in these small shops.

An foreign friend of mine was also ripped off at DAB in Lucky Plaza last year. He had bought and iPhone 3G from them earlier on for about $1,200. The next day he returned to ask them to load some applications for him. When he returned to collect the phone he was charged $1,600 for the apps! The loaded hundreds of games into this phone and countless other which did not need or ask for. They charged him about $50 per app, saying they had to buy from Apple Store etc etc.

Knowing that such business practices exist in SIngapore really makes me sick in the stomach! And worse still to know that the authorities are doing nothing and letting these thugs continue to rip off innocent people. Little wonder if the flood waters that hit Lucky Plaza earlier on in the year could not flush them out. I avoid shopping there at all cost. And when foreign friends come to visit and ask me about Lucky Plaza, I tell that the most interesting shop there is the one that sells Sex Toys ! laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif
