Beware of this mechanic/installer Eric. He is a Conman. He steals parts and/or exchange your parts with older ones. He will put on a pathetic front, and then buy your trust. When u discover that your parts have been switched, he will deny it, and if u continue to ask him, he will yell vulgarities at you at the top of his voice, and after that, claim that u have mental problem. PM me and I send his, his gf and son’s photos, so that U don’t identify them mistakingly.
I found a cheap Escooter for sale on carousel. U told me that u would like to follow me to check if the Escooter is a ‘good deal’. I made the arrangement to meet with the seller at 8pm, you said ‘ok’. U reached at 9:15pm. When u were checking the escooter’s condition, u told me ‘battery very good’, motor ‘VERY GOOD AND NEW, and THIS IS A VERY GOOD BRAND’, ‘better than yours, bec you just crashed your Escooter at 90km/hr, and you simply can’t get it repaired as yet. Anyhow, U ascertained that it was ‘only the controller problem, about $50’. Consequently, I paid for the Escooter. That same night, u said u have no money, and u wanted to ferry my Escooter back from AMK to your place in Serangøon, placing my Escooter on yours, and u intended to ride all the way back to Serangøon ‘carrying’ my 20kg, 2-day-old Escooter. Out of concern, not so much for you, but more for my escooter, I called for Grab for and I paid for the fare. The next day, u told me that u have diagnosed it and that it is confirmed that the controller is spoilt. You said u have no money to buy controller, and if I am NOT going to transfer you the $50, i will need to wait for your gf to to give u, (and god knows when), and only when she passes u the $50, only then u can scoot to Passiongadgets to get it. (What kind of installer are u, don’t even have $50??) I didn’t seem to have a choice, and I agreed to buy it. U suggested for me to fetch u from your place at serangoon rd , and fetch you in my car, proceed to Passiongadget to buy the controller, and get it fixed there. Only when I reached your place, called u in the phone, u told me to go myself instead, and bring the item back to u. I didn’t have much of a choice, I went ahead with your demands, bought and sent the controller to u at 4:25pm the same day. When I passed u the newly-bought 52V controller, I ask U if I can collect on the same day, u told me it will be ready in 1-2hrs, (by 6pm). At about 6pm, I called u, u refused to answer my call, I called u continuously until 8:25pm, and ONLY THEN, u texted me that my battery ‘caught fire’. (You don’t have the responsibility and decency to inform me, the moment something happened?! Only after 2.5hrs??? You have 8 years of experience, and u burnt my battery, or did u put in a lower voltage used one and set it on fire ???) My 2 week old Escooter looked like junk when I saw it that very night. U told me u managed to salvage most of the parts. U told me burnt-battery is stuck in the deck, if u try to dig it out, the battery will catch fire. (For the following days U told me same story). After 4 days, when I realized that u are doing nothing about it, except to complain about the problems, I suggested to you to look into YOUTUBE for a solution. (U are the installer, and I have to suggest to you what to do???) A few hours later, you told me that u discovered that soaking it in salt water for 3 days should solve the ‘igniting’ issue. On that same night, I went up to your place at about 11pm, and I got u $60 worth of tidbits and beer, where u told me the problem, yet again. (You are the installer, I send my item to you, you claimed that it caught fire, and I have to help you to solve the problem?????!) U came up with some lame suggestions, u wanted ‘to bring to the beach and soak the deck there’, or ‘scoot to the beach to bring salt water back’. Seriously, u acting stupid or are u plain dumb?!! I suggested to buy a few packets of salt and make use of the tap water to dilute it. U told me that around the corner of your ‘work-area’, there was a bin, supposedly underutilized. I mentioned that it was a much better idea to use the bin, than those lame methods you suggested. Initially u said that the landlord may not be happy. Then, u mentioned that it ‘should be ok’. (My friend was there to hear you say this). We left your place at 1:30am. Few hours later in the morning, u told me your landlord threw the water away, and u got warning, ‘cannot soak anymore...’ Subsequently, u blamed me for getting you into trouble with the landlord bec of this bin-issue. ARE U SERIOUS? Are u MENTAL? Deluded? Similar to the following analogy, ‘your gf gave birth to an Indian African boy, and u confront Donald Trump or me about the pregnancy?!’ OMG! I’m sure u don’t know who is Donald Trump, he’s definitely not KFC’s mascot. Go GOOGLE.... I went to your place several times, u failed to even keep to those arranged times to meet you. I bought u a carton of beer, and some tidbits for your gf and her son. U drank all the beer and ate all the tidbits. You told me you will definitely try to dig the batt out in the next 2 days. When I called u 2 nights later, u refused to answer my calls. And when I noticed that u posted a 52V battery for sale advertisement (the only ITEM for sale!) in carousel, I began to suspect. I tried calling u, with the intention to clarify my suspicions, but u were unreachable. When u were unreachable for more than 6 hrs, I banged on your door not once, not twice, but continuously until one the tenants opened the door for me. For this ‘disappearing act’, u claimed that u were out, ‘servicing customers’, ‘phone no more credit’ (what kind of installer are u, don’t even have a proper phone line, using prepaid and yet no $ to top up the credit, and not able to answer calls???). U told me that u would get the burnt battery out of the deck, and u did nothing! U dragged and dragged, day after day, nothing done. Everyday, there will always be a excuse, in the form of problems, that were never-ending. You even told me that u don’t have a choice, need to do other jobs 1st, no $ to pay rental. - WHAT LAME EXCUSES ARE THOSE?!! YOU OUGHT TO BE ATTENDING TO MY ESCOOTER 1st, because u burnt it, and u claim that u are responsible, and will settle it. EVEN WHEN I VOLUNTEERED TO PAY FOR THE REPAIRS, U STILL SERVICE OTHER CUSTOMERS 1st, are u kidding me?!! You expect me to pass u cash to buy the battery? U can dream about it. U can’t remove the burnt battery that’s stuck in the deck, why should I even get u a battery(for U to sell?!!!), or pass u cash to buy one(so that u can makan the money?!!!) In total, I went to your place from Jurong, no less than 8 times. From the time my scooter was in your possession, I have to call u and text you, to get updates, and most of the time , u won’t answer. You don’t have the responsibility to fulfill your commitment and promises. U SAID, “I have to bear responsibility for the repairs”. (With WHAT, u bear responsibility?!! You don’t even have $5 to buy that few packets of salt, no $50 to buy my controller, etc) Out of goodwill, I volunteered to pay for the battery, and U immediately told me that u have a friend, selling a 52V 15A for $300. U also said, if I want, I can collect from your ‘supplier’ and pay him directly, or I can get it myself from some other source, and let u will simply install it for me. Finally, I found a better deal for a 52V 15A battery for $230, but when I informed you of this supposed good news, u texted me to get someone else to install it for me, and asked me to ‘fuck off’. You said that you would try to get one for me, at cost price(which now i know, is definitely BS ! ). Initially, u said that the battery seller was a good friend of yours and he is going to manufacture one for you, from scratch. I asked you to arrange for me to collect from him the following day, and you said ‘ok’. MY REASONS FOR INSISTING THAT I COLLECT AND PAY YOUR Batt guy DIRECTLY AND DELIVER THE BATTERY TO YOU, IS TO FACILITATE YOU, SO THAT YOU CAN HANDOVER MY SCOOTER ASAP. YOU SAID THAT YOU DONT HAVE MONEY TO PAY FOR THE BATTERY. YOU ALSO MENTIONED THAT YOU WILL BE SCOOTING FROM YOUR PLACE IN SERANGOON to ALEXANDRA VICINITY to collect the battery, and BACK TO SERANGOON, BECOS U GOT NO MONEY TO TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT. Eventually, you told me you will arrange for me to collect at around 1pm the next day. The following day, i canceled my other appointments to cater time to collect the battery from your supplier. At 1:30pm there was no news from you. I tried calling you several times in the morning as well, you didn’t answer(as usual), and I reckoned that u must be sleeping till past 2pm(as usual). When I finally got u, you said you are very busy, ‘cannot talk’, ‘must go for jobs’, ‘cannot pay rent’, bottom-line is, you cannot attend to my Escooter at all. I looked you up at night the same day, at your place. When I was with you, you claimed that the battery guy actually went to you at 1pm that same day, with the battery, and didn’t want to give you the battery because you got no money to pay him. Our initial arrangement was for me to collect the battery from him, but you came up with a ridiculous reason for not making that arrangement. You were hinting to me to pass u cash and you will collect the battery. What crap are you uttering?!! It was your responsibility to get me a battery, but eventually, I had to pay for it. Even when I made the arrangements to collect for you at the stipulated time, you were actually sleeping at that time. In fact for the following 8-10days, you told me the same - ‘I need to go and do more jobs’, ‘no money for rental’, ‘no time to do your scooter’. When I texted u that I got a 52V 15A battery at $230($70 cheaper than your offer), u asked me to take all my parts back and get someone else to fix it. When I tried to ask u for an explanation for making such a remark, you rejected my call. When I made the 2nd call to u, u answered the phone and yelled and shouted at me, with Hokkien vulgarities. U threatened to place my items outside the door and asked to collect them myself. I texted your gf that I’ll be there to collect all my items from you at 8pm that day, and I was on time. Your gf got her son to pass me, just one item, and it was the stem with a broken screw in one of the holes, AT ABOUT 10pm. (Her time is as rubber as yours). Realizing the potential blunders of passing me the wrong items, u took over, but only after waiting for you to service another customer for a good 45mins! After u took over the task, it took you more than 30mins to bring the items down to me. Finally and eventually, u returned me my deck with the burnt battery still lodged inside my deck. (2 days before, U asked me for $30 for the labor charge to cut my deck open, so as to remove the burnt battery, but it was NOT done, and my $30 was not returned to me. Are u thick skinned or are u nuts?!!! U bloody cheap skate low level conman!! U run a biz, no money to buy basic parts, take cash from me, and yet nothing was done!) thereafter, u handed me the rest of my stuff in plastic bags at your poorly-lit corridor. U made me buy a BRAND NEW 52V controller on the DAY 1, I passed it to you and i showed you the receipt, but u returned me a very worn-out, used, old 36V controller. FYI, I sent all the items to an installer, and he dismantled the parts, in my presence. The controller was tampered with. U swop the shell of my 52v controller, to house a 36V used-controller. (I remembered that u specifically showed me the warranty sticker that was on the housing of the controller when u were returning me the controller. Nice move, change the covers! No wonder you highlight this point to me). Also, the motor is DEFINITELY NOT MINE! U gave me a damaged old motor, with missing rivets and with numerous deep scratch marks. U also took my 2-day-old brake rotor, and replaced it with a damaged one. You are one MF-Dishonest-SCUMBAG. RETURN me my motor, my brand new 52V controller(receipt still with me), my rotor, all the missing screws, and a brand new 52V 26A battery which u set fire to. I bet u won’t be able to, coz u must have sold most of them. SOMETIMES I WONDER, u claim u got no money, but u were drinking beer and patronizing la saab bar. No money how u go to that night club? Which girl inside so cheap, pls recommend leh...perhaps u spent it all on these, that’s why no money to buy parts for customers, no money to take public transport, etc. One last note to your gf, whom I’m certain is replying to my comments (coz ur English standard is in tandem with your character and personality). Your BF is nothing but a piece of crap, incapable, incapacitated, dishonest, disorganized, vulgar.... and in general, a nutcase. Continue to ‘support’ & associate with him, good luck to you and your son.
