Yeah! My wife and I were also prevented to leave until I threatened to throw furniture and break things in the place.
They deserved it. Wish the punishment could be harsher to prevent more businesses from doing such. I slammed the phone without saying a thing when they called me the other time.

So when is that camera shop at Peninsula Plaza getting shut down? Must be 200+ cases filed against it by now.
It's one thing for the company to have no integrity. It's another thing when employees themselves lose their integrity because the company demands so.
finally! but i doubt it's of any use, 1 down, just register another

I dun think they are fined, just given some "warnings" from the court. Anyway, pressure selling is not new and CASE like just woke up recently to look into this. CASE should conduct more education to public on pressure selling so no more victims will fall into this, better than spending money to give "warnings".

Now that they had agreed to the authority not to trap women, does that imply they can trap men? Oh my, i hope it does not turn into a gay club with free scrub.
If they do not have 60min, they can do it in 45min or 30min. Sales strategies are easy to redesign.
I guess NBN will not feel sorry for what they did. It is their mission to torture and squeeze. But they did not do it at knife or gun point, so they are walking along the grey zone of the law. Just like times share. You cannot stop them as they can manifest into varied forms.
Their focus is also overseas market and i am sure they will succeed everywhere they go.
No fine nor any punishment.... not even a warning..... its just a reminder to be not so aggressive in their sales tactics. They are even told they can detain customers as long as less than an hour....
No la, they were not told that they can detain customers for 1 hour.
It is their boss saying that now they'll limit their promotion talk to 1 hour.
Nobody has a right to detain anyone under the law...if you walk off and they stop you, you can call in the police.
Then again...there're no free lunches, people who go for such deals should have expected some kinda sales talk and pressuring.
Ok, the MedioCrap quote doesn't actually say anything about detaining people for less than an hour... but still it makes me wonder. See also the report elsewhere in this thread about being hindered to leave. I don't think unlawful detainment is a petty crime in Singapore.Originally Posted by MedioCrap
btw, the name Naughty by Nature is a rip-off..

To me, those who fall for the "FREEEEEEE" trap, well honestly, they also had it coming. I don't think I could be THAT fortunate in life to get a phone call telling me I get free this and free that.
Where got people run business by giving out things for free one? How to survive? Sure got catch one, lah.
Some marketing gimmicks really give free stuff. I had once received a flyer (bookmark style) with a real coin sealed onto it. The key is, it makes people want to read its content. instead of spending on a nice ribbon, a free 5c coin is more eye catching
Giving away free things is a graceful gesture, but trapping subjects in an enclosed premise (with security guard) is another.
I wonder why Case need several hundreds of complains before they took notice. Is free consultancy that insignificance compared to their paid job? If it is, why bother to form CASE?
