Sim Lim Square #02-76 - BEWARE

Post  CandYBatH on Fri Aug 15, 2008 6:22 pm

saw this from another forum... just wanna share... beware of this shop at SLS...

I just want to warn everyone to AVOID going to unit # 02-76 in Sim Lim
Square. They are grotesque scammers that has the tendency to be
physically violent to customers. I was one of their unfortunate
victims. Their signboad says 'Evolution Gaming LLP', but as I was
researching on the net, they apparently regularly change their store
name. They used to be called MH Electronics, or Mobile House
Electronics. And a neighbouring store that's unit # 02-72 also used to
be 'Evolution Gaming'. They were also called 'Compact Camera'. I've
read a lot of complaints from that store too.

Anyway, here's what happened. My girlfiend and I went to Sim Lim to
buy a PSP. I know, it was quite stupid of me to go there for a PSP.
It's all over the net that the last place to buy a PSP is in Sim Lim.
I went anyway, thinking it's "not gonna happen to me" (i was dead
wrong). So we went to different shops to ask for prices. The prices we
got were 360, and 340.. complete with all the necessary stuff like
battery, 4G card, cable, case, and modification. When we got to unit #
02-76 (Evolution Gaming LLP), they quoted us $308. That was too
cheap.. but it was almost 9pm and I was just tired and wanted the PSP.
So I said I'll take one. The sales guy was friendly. He's tall, fat,
and had a lot of pimples on his face. He took our money and said he'll
modify it in front of us. After the so-called modification, he showed
the PSP to me... and it was lagging! He said the modification took
much of the RAM and it needed an upgrade, and that we had to pay $200!
Holy sh*t... and while he was selling the upgrade to me, he kept
calling me 'my friend...'. That was just annoying. I said we don't
have that kind of money, and we'd like to get our money back. From
here, things got ugly. The store owner (tall, skinny, and also had a
lot of pimples) started shouting at us, saying just take the PSP, the
we're wasting his time, etc. And another guy tried to talk to us,this
short little guy with glasses, squeaky voice, introduced as the store
manager. He tried to explain about the upgrade. But we've heard
enough. We just wanted our money back, and we were not leaving.
Finally they said we could have our money back, but since the PSP has
already been modified, we should pay the GST (wtf!). After much
debate, I just said fine.. if that's what it takes to just leave this
place, then ok. So they gave us our money, less gst (that's $21 - not
bad, but still hurts). We were so pissed leaving the store. I decided
to take a photo of the store premises so I could have a 'souvenir' for
the event. Suddenly, this little guy with glasses (store manager, they
say) started to slap me in the face! (I'm not sure if it was a slap or
a punch.. looked like a punch, felt like a slap) He also shoulted at
me with his small squeaky voice. I prepared to hit back, aiming at his
small face.. but suddenly I see this tall lanky guy running from the
store carrying a metal stool. And the fat pimply guy who tried to sell
the PSP also came out running towards us too. The little guy's got
backup! So now there's 3 of them, and one of me. I remember thinking,
if I fight back, this is going to get ugly for me. But then, the short
guy took a plastic chair and continued to hit me, as well as this tall
guy with the metal stool! Unit # 02-76 Evolution Gaming LLP is
situated at the corner of the floor. The beating continued until we
reached the escalator. They hit me on the face, the arms, and body. My
girlfriend was just shouting 'please stop!'. Suddenly they demanded
for me to delete the photo.. i had no choice but to comply. After
deleting (they continued to hit me by the way), Sim Lim security came
in the scene. The little guy gave me one last hit on the body with his
reliable plastic chair. After that, security called the police. The
police came to talk to me, then went up to talk to the store owner
(tall pimply guy). The guys that attacked me where no longer there (of
course). We went to the police station, I gave a statement, they gave
me a medical form, we went to the hospital to document the scratches I
obtained from the attack. The police said that they were going to
launch an investigation about it.

So now here I am writing about it. The net has got loads of warning
stories like this about the scamming happening in Sim Lim. Let this be
an additional story about it. I haven't actually read about any
violence happening, so I think this is the first.
