Im sorry but are some people so naive, it's well known you get ripped off in these types of places:no: SINGAPORE - How does one end up paying more than $2,000 for an item that costs only about $900? Filipino client support executive Nicholas Frias, 23, who visited Singapore last month, did. He paid $2,106 for the 64GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi to a shop in Sim Lim Square. Mr Frias, who arrived in Singapore on June 20, first went to other malls but found that they were sold out He then went to Sim Lim Square around 4pm on June 25. He was, at first, delighted to find out that the 64GB iPad 2 at Mobile Evolution LLP cost $890, before taxes. The same model is priced at $928 at the online Apple Store. The salesman, Eric, then charged Mr Frias another $68 for taxes, and asked $958 for the device. Mr Frias agreed to pay another $28.90 for a warranty which came with a free case and screen protector. Eric then left the shop and returned 10 minutes later with a $1,148 bill that shocked Mr Frias. Apparently, the huge bill was for coverage for two years and the $28.90 quoted was the monthly premium. That added up to a total of $693.60, still $454.40 short of the $1,148 charged. The shop did not state what the additional $454.40 was charged to at that point. They also refused to reduce the warranty period when Mr Frias asked for it. In shock and not wanting to cause any trouble, Mr Frias just signed for it. He ended up paying a total of $2,106.

krestsaf posted a topic in Aussie Chathappy valentines day all I paid tax and did my tax return as a resident last year here (am still at the same address) Am on a WHV but had passed the 183 day rule as advised by ATO and Tax accountant, and had been in the same place to qualify. I just heard on the news that the payments will be made via centrelink Swan says stimulus cash to be mailed out does the tax office send the details to centrelink to make the payments? how will they know where i live?? as I am not registered with Centrelink, only the ATO How will I know for sure if I am eligible? If the Government are happy to take my tax off me, and class me as a resident, then but dont class me as a resident for this payment. I think it is unfair and stinks!
