Great idea!!! Prehaps we can also put up photos of all the lousy salesman around.. then we'll see what else they can sell with their notorious faces all over the Net!!
finally got my camera from MS Color for $530 with GST.
not the best price, but definately the best service, compared to most stuck-up shops in Sim Lim.
Today decided to go JSL and try again, quote me $500 with GST $515. I said ok, I will take it.
Salesman said his shop don't have, go and if I want can get for me. Go and make some call, then later tell me to come back 1 hr later.
feeling something fishy, anyway, I waited.
went back 1 hr later, sales man gone, went to another saleman, told him, I am back to get the camera, he just sit there and give you the couldn't care much attitide, say, I didn't ask you to wait, no no, no camera for sale.
went to Penisular, 1 shop quote me $550, I tell him too expensive, he said, you don't want to buy many people snatching, I know the market ran out of stock, so I must jack-up the price.
tried another shop in Penisular, tell me $530 add GST $545. I ask for $520 with GST. he tell me if you got sell me.
Then went to Far East Plaza, where 1 person said he got it for $515 with GST. Mega Foto.
Called them, quote me $495, and got stock, plus GST $510. so cheap? I went down, to the shop 30 minutes later, taking a cab. Guess what?
After I said I wanted it, make some phone call, then tell me no stock. But I said I just called, you said have, and $510 with GST. He said no stock, lar no stock lar. and went away.
I just notice 1 thing, those electronics shop in Penisular and Sim Lim and far east are more interested to chop tourist, then selling us their cameras.
