    Default The "Hi-Fi" Seller-in-a-van is back!

    Hi everyone,

    Remember a few months back, there's this van(dull blue or red) that will stop pass-by in CBD area and try to sell your some "high-end" hi-fi speakers at a so-called "low price'? But in the end, you will buy some crappy stuff at a high price.

    I just met them in Tanjong Pagar MRT trying to stop me while I am walking towards the station. Spread the words, so no one will get cheated.

    Will there be Lens Seller-in-a-van in future? Maybe selling Nikkom or Cannan brand lens?

    not sure if it's the same seller(s), but a few months back while i was at a road junction waiting for the lights to turn green, a van stopped next to me and the guys in the van shouted out to me and asked me if i was interested in buying a brand new hifi set in the van. They claim it was because they loaded wrong number of units and had to get rid of it. I just smiled back and drove off when the lights turned green. They were shouting "Oi!@ Brother! Don't like that leh!? ..."

    Thumbs down Re: The "Hi-Fi" Seller-in-a-van is back!

    This is a well-documented international scam. I posted about this a long time back
    SCAM ALERT - Theatre Innovations

    They always give same excuse - supposed to sell off, but now they got surplus stocks, so they need to sell them off if not they get into trouble when their boss finds out.

    So, watch out people!

    I always wonder how much money they make, considering they need to hire a van, employ 3-4 ppl (actors?), stock up the fake hi-fi speakers, etc etc, is it really worth it to scam?

    hmm.... sound like something I witnessed, was it at the Junction outside MICA building ? were you're driving a CarVan ? If it was not you, then guess you're not the only one they tried at a traffic stop.

    I am sure by selling Nikkon as Nikon and Cannon as Canon is convincingly good enough:

    Saw a white one is the carpark near Mcdonalds Kalang MRT 2 months back. This fellow was trying to 'get rid' of some cheap Hi-Fi stuff .
