A woman claimed she was left with no choice and was compelled to sign for packages worth $17,000 at a beauty salon, and was even accompanied by an employee to an ATM to make fund transfers.
The incident allegedly happened at a beauty salon in Toa Payoh Central on August 7. The customer was a 35-year-old administrative officer.
She told Shin Min Daily News, as disclosed in Asiaone news story, that the employees ‘pressured’ her to sign up for packages which included three sessions of facelift, six sessions of eyebrow embroidery procedure, and treatment for oily skin, not to mention a $940 worth of cosmetic products.
The cost of the package was $17,000 in total. She also said that despite being hesitant to sign up, she ultimately gave in after the ‘pressuring’ from the staff.
Almost a month after the aforementioned incident, the woman told her sister-in-law what she had experienced at the salon. Believing it was not lawful, she accompanied the woman and three other family members down to the salon to reason with the staff.
When they ended up with an unresolved issue, they decided to call the attention of the police authorities. In response to media queries, a Police spokesman confirmed that the incident was actually reported via phone call at 5:09 p.m. on the day it happened. Police advised the two parties to resolve their issues in private.
