S’poreans react to CASE advising consumers to ‘seriously think about protecting their rights’

Posted on 13 October 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


More than 30 couples have lodged complaints at the Consumers Association of Singapore (Case) against Sophia Wedding Collection, which closed suddenly on Oct. 10, 2015.

Affected couples paid between $2,000 and $7,000 for the salon’s services, such as renting the bridal gown and photo packages.

At a press conference held on Monday morning, Oct. 12, at Case’s office in Ghim Moh, its president Seah Seng Choon said it was expecting more complaints and urged consumers to “seriously think about protecting their rights”.

Seah also said: “Consumers cannot assume that businesses will be around forever, as they come and go.”


Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “Singaporeans by and large also cannot assume that the PAP will be around forever, going by Case’s logic.”
Jiang Dao Li, 42-year-old windshield cleaner


sian-half-uncle “Case sure is doing a good job asking consumers to protect consumers’ rights.”
Kah Kee Lai, 64-year-old food court cleaner


happy-bird-girl “The only reason Case is seeing lesser complaints over the years is because people in Singapore have given up going to them for help.”
Suan Le Bah, 16-year-old ex-golf ball polisher
