Waahhh!!!! So brazen. My fren also said, if dun pay to certain amount these IDs think they have the rights to pull the plug . U pay leow 80 % they also dun wan start work ?? A bit too much!! My fren also said b4 sign contract they would say all ok one but when sign already that's where the fangs cme out . My fren kena touted day n night by the contractor like some ah beng debt collector n threaten to stop ALL work!,! He was deceived into believing tat the contractor is financial able to put capital to start then my fren progressively pay as his HDB is in the process of finalizing the selling tranx, u know the typical sell first n use the extra money for Reno for the next hme.

Hope this weekend, not many people place deposits for his renovation package. They have caused my life now in a mess. I am prepare to sue them until they wind up their company. Must not let them cheat other people money again.

Actually i really dont understand how some people think. Run away with a sum of small money and thinkg that they can get away with it? they are real short term mindset people who simply got no EQ and IQ.

Already got the project and got the job le. Its already $ in the bag. Why need to run away? just do the job and earn it la!?

There is a loop hole in Singapore law, as long the company is pte ltd, once they wind up, consumers not able to get back the refund from them even though they are loaded with money. We can only claimed their company assets.....which can be empty company....If this thing did not happen to me, I also do not know this. Many people in Singapore might also do not know this....Is it true that we could not do anything to this? This has cause my life in a mess for the past few weeks.....Just hope that not many people sign up packages from this company as they have a booth in current renovation fair at Expo this week till next week end.....

Jbooncho , If sue him, is the cost going to be higher than the amount you going to claim ? If yes, better not let lawyer earn as you may not u get bck enough to cover expenses. Save ur time n energy then use forums o share your experience to warn the whole of SG lagi better. My fren is going to do the tat blitz as he fed up being bullied.

The runaway company is in a vicious cycle. They first owe money, then need fresh funds to pay old debts and current expenses,then owe more money, then need more funds to pay and it keeps snowballing till the company comes to a standstill by police.

Someone who sue them is just one case for the company. What about many other victims who didn't sue? Even if they sue the company, at most the company closed down and yet they can't get back their money. It's not a desirable win-win situation for the victims. :furious:

At least I must make it clear that is them who breached the agreement else they might counter sue me and claims the balance 20%......

Borrow your thread to bring awareness to ID firms and individuals as well.

Andy Yeo Boon Heng, ex-employee of Grupp Marketing Pte Ltd and partner/owner of Y & C Resources that provides QuickStep Laminate Flooring, is currently on the run.

He collected my deposit and now he is uncontactable. His ex-partner and other sources had confirmed he had skipped town.

Any IDs or individuals who engaged him to do laminate floorings, please pm me if you had made a police report. I will share with you my police report number and I/O for us to link our cases together.

Andy Yeo Boon Heng

Y & C Resources

ROC: 53203076A

HP: 81599587

Hmmm....Andy while still in Grupp Marketing Pte Ltd, I have no problem with him doing some of my house owners QuickStep laminate flooring. But I started to worry when he used another company to deal with me when I ordered Quickstep laminate flooring with him again this year April. I sensed that he always in need of money and wanted cash payment instead of cheque so dealing with him is I pay 50% when I see the goods deliver and 50% upon completion and rectification if any.

As of now, think best is not to get his service anymore even tot QuickStep laminate is still a good quality laminate flooring, Im sure is better to approach someone that are more trustworthy in real doing an honest business or services. :yamseng:

Jaskel, so in the end I supposed he did deliver for you.

Anyway, Andy Yeo Boon Heng is not contactable since June and Grupp Marketing is no longer the dealer for QuickStep laminate flooring.

Thus, it will be a challenge to get QuickStep Laminate Flooring in the market for the moment until a new official dealer is unveiled.

Just a word of advice for those looking around to engage IDs/Contractors. For my case, even though I had gotten a court order against this person that is on the run, that's all I will get. The amount is way too small to proceed for the next step to seize his assets. Worse still, our police is not able to pursue it further so long as someone on "top" determine it as a breach of agreement and make it a civil case.

So all this person need to do is get a new mobile phone number, move house or move from their rented premises and they are free to continue to do whatever they want.

I had engaged Millennium Lifestyle Pte Ltd and paid them 50% ($1476) to start the work on TV console/feature wall. Its been more than one month and they haven't shown up for next step. Every time they promise to come but don't turn up and make excuses. Its seems Marvin Wong is not longer contactable and Shirley Lee is using his mobile and email id to contact. Please do not engage them for any contract work. I am thinking of next step of filing police case and then going to CASE or Small tribunals for claims. Please let me know how you are doing it. Please provide me with your contact details and we can catch up to discuss further.

Thanks
