Ok guys, this is a warning. When you need to buy gadgets anywhere in the world, just be careful. Some sellers just wanna scam u out of your hard earned money.
You may want to avoid this place called Asia Mobile House in Lucky Plaza Mall, Singapore. It would appear that the owner takes advantage of tourists who are there for a short stay. My friend told me that a classmate of his tried to buy a PSP from the store. After haggling for a while, he and the seller agreed on a selling price of Sing$300. So the guy hands over the cash, and the seller then suddenly asks, “Ok, so where is your Playstation?” The buyer was perplexed, but when he looked at his receipt, the item listed there was a memory card. Thinking there was a simple misunderstanding, the buyer says “I’m buying it from you remember?” The seller then says, “No, you asked for a memory stick for your PSP.”
Five easy steps to keep this from happening to you, in Singapore or any other place:
1. Beforehand, try to find out what comes with the gadget you’re buying (power cords? adaptors? software?)
2. After agreeing on a price, ask the seller to bring out the merchandise and open the box in front of you
3. Request that the seller take out each item in the box, and identify it for you
4. Ask the seller to close the box and put it into the plastic/paper bag in front of you
5. Hand over the money as the seller hands you the bag
