    and i suspect his very own comments could be used against him in the court of law.

    to Mr Hong, i quote u.

    "Angelina of Lavena Shoes is a cheat as well. "
    "Is she not cheating me as well? This is the kettle calling the pot black.
    "It actually took half a day of work, not a whole day as she claims, so she lied and she is a cheat as well."

    u admit in ur capacity as the managing editor that you have cheated and scammed a person, while on the other hand still insist that she has cheated you without providing any evidences to back up ur statements.

    in short, i believe u have just defamed TS as u have posted comments which will directly affect her business and it is falsehood for now as u have not proven ur mentioned claims true.



    under the defamation act, u can be charged in court.

    on the other hand, TS has shown a letter which proves that there is a written contract which both parties have accepted. and u have not uphold ur side of the deal.

    on section 8.88 (wad a lucky number) of singapore contract law it is mentioned that
    In the absence of a lawful excuse, a breach of contract has two significant effects.
    and in 8.89
    First, if the breach of contract by one contracting party (the ‘party-in-breach’) causes loss to the other (the ‘aggrieved party’), the party-in-breach may be ordered by the courts to compensate the aggrieved party in money damages for those losses, in lieu of the primary obligations left unperformed under the contract. However, contractual damages (which are compensatory and not punitive in nature), is not the only judicial remedy available. Other types of remedies may be available in lieu, or sometimes, in addition to damages, depending on the nature of the obligation which has been breached.
    http://www.singaporelaw.sg/content/ContractLaw.html

    u are also legally responsible for a breach of contract in this matter.
    i'm not a legal expert, and this is at least my interpretation of the current defamation act.it may not be accurate as i am not a professional dealing with law. if there are any experts out there, pls advise.

    Should this gone into press, I think he may also want to sue SPH.

    He is the one who wronged our mod. He owed money and did not pay. He even admitted it here.

    Funny he said he was straightforward, but he skipped 2 court appearances... sounds like a shifty character to me, nothing straightforward from what I see.

    But I have yet to receive an apology for the dirty play by the admin and angeline tan.

    I expressed my thankfulness after you removed it, I think it is appropriate angeline tan apologises otherwise she is behaving as a hooligan and a ^*&%h and acting as an angel.

    So is post #170, an apology should be extended for the oversight.

    Alas I thought Joseph Hong has close shop already. I was also conned by this so called stylist and editor. (He had an office in Bukit Timah Shopping Centre).


    Here it goes:

    A coupe of years ago, I was contact by this so called Editor, stylist from Media Warehouse, Joseph Hong. He said that his client wanted 7 simple product shots on white background and he will do the art direct, styling and edge out. I just do the shoot. As it was a magazine he needed to have a margin for mark up. After some bargaining I settle for $30 per shot.

    Did the 7 shots of Bird Nest Product in the presence of the client, burn into CD and collect on the images the spot. As the client was present, Joseph told me he will sent the cheque of $210 to me at the next shoot in a week's time. BTW throughout the shoot Joseph did nothing and I have to style the products and also show the client the angle etc.

    The next week came and this time the client came with more bird nest products ie 7 more. Joseph did not turn up and call to say his assistant will be there. The assistant(a part timer) came but without the cheque for the first shoot. I had to carry on the shoot as not to create a scene in front of his client. Shoot done, CD given.

    After 8 months despite constant chasing and visiting his office, I could not get any payment.

    Went to Small Claim Tribunal and on two hearings, Joseph Hong did not even bother to turn up. Was supposed to get a bailiff and go to his office to seize items. I gave up as it is taking too much of my time and effort for $420 and I already spent about $100+ for the SCT process. I check around and his office is gone and I thought this joker Joseph Hong is gone,

    Never knew he is still around conning ppl. Photographer and consumer beware of this joker.

    BTW a sample of my image taken can be seen here

    I was trying to develop more business to salvage my situation but that was an uphill task bec I got stuck in the midst of a poor economic climate. So stop being a saint and judge me when you don't understand my situation. And, stop throwing at me comments till you are in the same boat and got off without a tinge of sin committed.

    The client then did not pay me as well, I incurred more losses so what do you want me to do then? If you were in the same boat like I did then, I am sure you won't be so self righteous about the matter.

    When you are down and out, flat at the bottom, financially broke from a huge lost in a business deal, I am sure you may behave in more blantant ways than what I have done.

    Think about it before you shoot off your mouth before engaging the gears in your brains. You may be rich n never poor so you won't understand so stop being the judge and judging others when you are equally human and also subject to sins in your life. I am sure you lied too sometime in your life and work, you owe payments as well as others owing you and you have instalments to pay, credit cards to pay, etc. So keep yourself from the wayward ways and then you can judge.

    I went on this forum with my full name and face everyone as I am, I am the way I am, straight forward and blunt with my comments and happenings.

    Anyway, I need to get some work done otherwise I won't have money to pay my bills, I am not wasting any more time here.

    Goodbye.
    Hi..

    Would you like to enlighten us on your dealing on the Bird nest shoot?

    Just being kapoor lah!

    if i had no money, i would rather work my ass off at mcdonald's than cheat people. no need to say "oh, my life sucks, you don't understand me i am so sad." that's just.. pathetic. i'm sorry, but i can't think of any other word for it.
    Yes you are right!

    Wrong is wrong just make it right. Don't give excuses!

    Hi all,

    I had just read all the latest reply from yesterday afternoon and this is what I need to say.

    First of all, I didnít start this thread intending to accuse or defamed anyone neither do I want to pick a fight. Like I said right from the beginning of the thread, is to warn people that there is this person out there.

    If Joseph wants to go on shouting and calling me names or anyone of you names and thinks that he is only the righteous one out there, let him be as the situation is obvious by now.

    I think this thread have created a deep impression of Joseph this man with the help of Joseph himself. So mod, is your decision to make if you want to close the thread.

    alpstan, i suggest u take this case to CASE. it would be helpful to all of us as ur doing the society good. my advice is to not just raise awareness. one of our mods has been scammed before, and with the similiar mentality to yours, he closed one eye.

    and this has lead mr hong to be more daring and ur the next victim.

    who knows will be the next? i strongly urge u to take this matter up to CASE and put a stop to this nonsense.

    also, the findings of CASE and their conclusions will also be sufficient enough to convince the masses that there has been a fair neutral view on this situation. currently i feel that this thread may be biased. hence it would be good to have CASE to look at this.

    CASE is quite useless IMHO. They take in reports, and usually not much action is taken.

    If TS want to pursue the matter, I strongly suggest going to small claims court.

Then a frez told me about this forum, therefore I register myself and post the thread.

    I hope joseph, danny or the photographer at down town east will see this and call me.

    Yup. For a PTE LTD, you can only sieze whatever is listed as capital items in the books. Doesn't mean you can seize anything that is at the address.

    File a bankruptcy lawsuit against him in that case then, a bailiff under the authority of the Sheriff of Singapore will then enforce a Writ of Seizure and Sale on all his personal properties by pasting a red sticker on it.
