    and his client called me and told me he need very urgently ,and i met his client to private settler this issue ,yet i show his client all the photo we shot and the one Chris rejected .

    his client was happy if it ,meaning that day when i got rejected by Christopher liew is because the payment is not ready.

    he trying to comment until very badly and refuse to pay,and tell me he haven'nt receive any payment from his client.
    and Christopher thrown blame to me said because of my bad photograph ,video man still can't get his pay yet.

    yet his client told me he already fully paid him and he did not answer his call until now unless unknown number or private number.

    the 2nd and 3th job is not under the same company,the 1st job i settle with his client.

    and his client wanted to sue him,yes some one say he is in joo chat but when i met him to see my pic he stay in hougang.and i also heard someone say his office in genting lane ,but also moved .

    it was lucky i did not give him that pic cause i already don't trust him at the very first place.

    that is the by-product of being a photographer. Sweet talking client, paint a rosy picture, promising tons of jobs in the pipeline, working on long term basis, asking for rock bottom price/service, delayed payment, bounced cheque, once the client start to find fault with pictures or give sarcastic comment relating to service or something, he/she is hinting that you better give me a discount otherwise I would not pay.

    By and by , one would be able to assess this type of boogey man/women within the first minute of conversation, very easy assignment, one shot only needed, no high demand on quality, will pay you straight away, I am good pay master... all these crap.

    My response...if you don't need high quality, why bother to engage me ? If it's so easy, go shoot yourself. whether one shot or two shot ,I'll still charge on my rate.

    hehehe ... why not agree to take up the job and ask for the no of the client ... ask client to pay you the full amt direct ... then you would be taking a bigger cut ... when he cannot take the payment, the scam cannot work and he would be back to find some decent work ...

    i starting know his client ,and i just to intro my self to his client .
    he just talk directly to me in front of his client said this is my client don't give name card.

    than before Christopher liew reach i had already pass one name card to his although client ,when he know i given the name card to his client he call me and yell at me like hell!!!

    yet he himself late for that event,and photographer normally need time to set up first,so i went in to intro myself than i can start doing my job than waiting for him to come.

    and is also not fair to ask his client to pay Christopher liew bill,cause client already fully paid Christopher liew.

    MOM needs 3 months to process the complain. Just like other government units. By the time this so called christopher might have changed his name to tom, dick , harry.
