AUGUST 2019 - FRAUD ALERT: I WAS SCAMMED OUT OF $664 USD BY THESE PEOPLE!! BUYER BEWARE!!
This unfortunate review relates to my visit to this establishment in June 2019, please read before you visit them and be aware that these people are a fraudulent scam.
June 24, 2019 – Visited the establishment where the owner, Feroz Akbar, sold me 2 pants, 2 skirts and 2 suits to be delivered on June 27, 2019. He promised these would be done by then because he also has made several suits for Bill Clinton (I should have known Bill Clinton would never buy from these people… but that’s a story for another day).
He promised the items only if I agreed to pay the order in full, which I did (Hello Scam Central!).
June 25, 2019 – First fitting – these items looked awful… not bad, awful. All pieces needed substantial adjustments, to the point where some items needed to be redone all together. Still, they promised they could have it by June 27 (while pointing at the picture with Clinton, of course)
June 27, 2019 – Dooms day is here and over half of the items are nowhere to be found. I showed up for what was supposed to be the last fitting, only to find out he has to remake the suits and the pants so the only things I could try-on were the skirts (which weren’t ready for delivery either). At this point, and as I had told him several times, I have to leave the country and since the order is not ready then I need a refund.
On that day, on his store and in front of his family and my co-worker he agreed to a FULL REFUND to my credit card.
It has been a little over a month and he is now saying he never agreed to a refund and is doing everything in his power to scam me out of my money, even though he is well aware of the fact he never delivered the goods as agreed upon.
I have tried calling them several times and they have ignored all of my calls. I have tried emailing them several times and they are not responding.
Singapore is such a beautiful country filled with so much to enjoy.
Please learn from my mistake and do not allow this establishment to scam you’re credit card and ruin your experience.
I am currently seeking legal action against this establishment which will costly and burdensome, and the least I can do is share my story so more customers are not scammed.
BUYER BEWARE, THIS HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE!!!
Excellent Tailor. [Google Review]
