    There is an amount restriction on payment with coins.

    Coins having value of more than 50 cents (here it means $1 coin) any ammount.

    Coins having a value of 50 cents (50 cent coins): maximum amount is $10.

    Coins below value of 50 cents (20 cents, 10 cents, 5 cents) maximum is $2.

    I don't know why but somehow, some folks think that it's ok to pay $3000 for an iPhone.

    They're tricked to sign some "contract" requiring them to buy the extended warranty. After paying the initial "reasonable" price they are forced to pay an additional amount for the warranty portion otherwise the shop will not release the phone to them.

    There's another case again regarding this shop. This time a Vietnamese male
    tourist gotta to knee down begging and crying for his refund while the shop
    staff were laughing.

    This is just too much. The relevant authorities should do something
    such bold arrogance geezus.

    Agreed, but maybe these folks are thinking in terms of Dong$3000 and Yuan$3000, cheap right ?

    Our Tourism Board should not list Sim Lim Square as a place to shop for tourist. Having known of past problems there and not taking harsher actions, STB indirectly encouraging the shops to continue to run their business there.

    Tourist don't come just to buy iphone.

    SMRT Ltd (Feedback) is already taking action against the shop owner. I say this is a lot more lethal than anything that CASE can do to the guy.

    I guess the question is.. what legal power does SMRT have to deal with this kind of situation?

    Theres actually a fake Facebook page that goes by the name of SMRT Ltd (Feedback). Its a pretty good read to kill some time. they are doing a special feature on the handphone shop owner.

    Enjoy.

    I go there frequently for the PC components stuff. That's what SLS is famous for. Not for buying cameras, phones or audio/video stuff. For those, there are other better bargain places.

    For PC related shops, there are black sheeps too. Anyway online stores eg. newegg, lazada, are giving SLS retailers a run for their money. They need to realise this soon and buck up.

    Alan photo included? Heh heh! So far AP n another shop at 2nd floor are ok. The rest, buy at own risk. But some shop on top also got bad cs. So, just walk away when you feels not right.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Best is to just go to SLS for PC components. There are many other places for electronics that you can go to for a way easier and comfortable shopping experience at not much higher of a price.

    I have a habit of doing a detour to avoid walking within SLS physical boundary.
