    Default Came across this. wish to share with all.

    -- Start --

    hi gals,
    KH/Chris Soh (whichever name u know him) lied again. He didn't transfer the deposit I paid to me as spoken on last Thursday(22 Sep). I would be reporting this to the police this evening. I don't want him to think that it is right to be cheating people like this. Anyway, I had warned him that if he didn't transfer, I would report to police.

    I had given him a 2nd chance by engaging him (he didn't turn up for my wedding and he didn't call me), a 3rd chance when I meet up with him on last Thurs (with the help of purelyz). But some people just can't be trusted.

    Just think that $100 deposit paid by 10 brides and he didn't turn up for their weddings. It's $1000 earned without doing anything and it's cheating.

    The money may not be big but the worries were beyond words can describe. Imagine worrying days before wedding if the PG will turn up. Brides should be relaxing days before the BIG DAY.

    I don't see any need to ask him for a reason for not turning up. He dared not even have eye contacts. He's simply not trust worthly, and cannot be relied on for your big day.

    If any of you still decides to engage him (or any freelance PG), please remember to ask him to write down his particulars behind the receipt. To also include his photograph. Just in case, he say don't have, bring a digital camera with you. Don't pay him cash, pay him by cheque.

    the name is very familar...

    anyway. i am a hunter for those who cheat wedding couples of their money...

    i will not hesitate to post their names here and defame them big time.

    because its these people who hurt the industry and taint the name of the title photographers.

    yes, he is in CS, do not ask or PM me his nick.

    If I remember correctly, this is a very very old story, let bygones be bygones, hope he do learn his lesson.

    and hope everyone will learn something from this incident also.

    want to enter wedding photography bussines? be prepared, it is not as rosy as you think.

    some peanuts get good monkeys

    some experienced monkeys will go missing after getting some peanuts.

    so adding up. many peanuts = bag of peanuts.

    so lets all learn the lesson.

    take some peanuts first. perform some tricks first. make them happy. and then receive more peanuts.

    and remember. never bite the hands that feeds you.

    more peanuts means u will have more rice on the table.

    i need more peanuts la. money no enough.

    Sori, meant to be cocky and a lame reason. It's not an excuse.
    Just look at most of the "con job" cases, most of the victims are falling for cheap deals.
    For a big day of your life, it's not worth the risk. It's got to be referred or get a photog with a track record.

    There's lots of monkeys here....they even willing to do the job for a bunch of bananas...

    Will these monkeys evolve into Homo sapiens?

    Human civilization is under threat, we are surrounded by monkeys who will settle for peanuts.

    it depends how BIG the banana is.... cause i also need BIG bananas to barter for rice.

    these monkeys into homosapiens ? forget it. Evolution will forget about them...

    some may become wolfs, some become crocodiles. some may become monwolf or moncodiles.

    so whatever the case. i believe there should be an end to this.

    and of course. i havent bring in the issue of the recent scamming modelling agencies.

    That has got to be the worst I think I've heard for a long time.
    The only way to beat these characters is to inform the media some shows similar to 60 minutes etc take joy in hunting these characters down and exposing them. Hence saving other potential victims.

    I found an article that is meant for the budding Wedding Photographer and if you look at some of the tips, they make for good questions to ask a photographer. Hope it's of some help anyway.
