clubsnap is here in singapore, but newbies dont make use of the info thats so easily available to them. always kana con than come here to check if they are indeed being con.

maybe schools should post up cs site in their notice board so newbies will know where not to buy stuff from and what is the reasonable price for the items.

:thumbsup: i think so too...the most amazing thing is they don't know how to check here first but they know where to go first to complain after kanna con..
on the bright side, hopefully they will stop being chopped.

i know of cases where the guy still think he got good deal, return to shop and get chopped again,... and again.. and again.. :bsmilie:

hahaha...Win big time....

it won't happen i guess...i half suspect when we post all these threads to warn ppl...they don't believe in it...and want to test water themselves.. then come back here as a ''saviour'' to remind us...when i read them is like...WTH are these shops...and i thank CS for the shortlisted shops..make it so easy for me to call and go down and make my purchase...

Some of them come CS to ask for advice, but end up also been confuse by so many misleading and wrong info by fellow CSer.

So end of the day, kena con or not, is really up the individual.

send sion to hold a placard at lucky plaza, sim lim square, saying "THIS PLACE IS FULL OF CHEATING SHOPS EXCEPT FOR XXX SHOP"

then he will also provide price list, warm towel... chat line to cs moderators if the people there still have queries. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

i think within 2 minutes the ah bengs at sim lim square will throw chairs at him. :bsmilie:

Everyone have a price point that they will play for something. Some pple pay $XXXX for something, and they are happy. Some pple pay $XX for the same thing, and they are not happy. Just adjust the expectation a little and no issue liao..

There are pple who happily pay $30,000 for a piece of printed paper, and they feel very shiok. And there is pple who wouldn't even pay $300 for that piece of paper.. And, the nice thing is, those who paid $30,000 don't have the slightest feeling of being conned.. :bsmilie:

Actually.. SLS got so many shops.. in reality maybe there's only a few big bosses owning all the shops.. so the "good" shop and the "bad" shop maybe same boss one.. :bsmilie:

Maybe some "outlet" purposely chop pple one they don't care got steady business or regular customer or not.. can chop just chop.. They depend on other better reputation outlets for steady business and sustained income..

there's something called street smart that schools don't teach...:rolleyes:
Guys, to be fair, not all newbies = students la.

Adults also kenna leh.

So must post up CS site in office's notice board too. :bsmilie:

True. Nowadays notice some fellows very active.

OT a bit, 3 types.

1) Either do technical reviews based on their mishandling (this lens got distortion, that lens don't have, new one better, new technology better, blah blah blah)

2) OR give technical advises (this one must be like that, that one must be like that).

And they themselves cannot produce things they advise others.

3) The worst type, is force their ideas on others type. That type, :thumbsup:
