    My experience there is that these shops are not even interested to 'look' at me! So, actually it is a blessing to have a 'broke ah Pek' look. Haha

    I do buy from SLS. But only from the good shops. You have to know the territory.
    The blacklisted shops do not care. How many tourists and shoppers know of such a list and bother to check it.
    Let us say it is 2 out of 10. Then the bad shops can still make a killing from the other 8 out of 10. Statistically, they win.

    From one of the vendors:
    "They put one list (sic), anyhow say we are cheats, so of course we fight back. I have been doing business here for over ten years, not so easy to get rid of me," said one vendor who runs a shop selling second-hand mobile phones.



    reporting to case cant do sh1t...
