Denise shared on her Facebook post saying that a shop by the name of EZ Advance Trading Enterprise Pte Ltd charged her maid and rip her off for a screen protector.
The shop sold the screen protector for S$145. That’s 5 times the original price sold elsewhere.
According to Denise, the shop gave the invoice to her maid and threaten her to pay the money. This is not the first time EZ Advance Trading was in the news.
In 2009, A French tourist was charged $120 more for a phone, and when she disputed the ‘extra charges’ was given a sendoff by the shop staff, one that was laden with expletives.
The phone had cost $300, but the price reflected on the customer’s invoice was $420 instead.
Queried about the difference, staffers at the shop said that the extra $120 was an ‘unlocking fee’.
When the customer started to dispute the charges, the shop staff reduced the ‘unlocking fee’ to $50, but added a 4 per cent credit card charge.
