Hi guys, recently i bought a handbag online from a seller residing in Singapore. She claimed that the handbag is 100% authentic but when i received it, i realized that it is a knockoff. When i questioned her about the aunthenticity, she keeps denying that its fake .So i brought it to the store in Malaysia to get it verified and indeed it was not authentic ! I told her i did not want the bag anymore and just wanted a refund. Thats when she stopped replying to my emails and even blocked me on Facebook but lucky i managed to save all her pictures and information before she private her profile. I've already made a police report in Malaysia but the useless police here cannot do anything, called up the bank and they also cannot do anything. Im so lost now i dont know what else i can do , i cannot make a police report through the SPF website cus i dont have singpass. If anyone has any advice for me please share thank you very much
Moral of the story.
Do i even need to say it?
then come to singapore to make police report loh
while u are here, u can visit our singapore flyer, gardens by the bay, and halloween horror night at USS
If she passed off counterfeit goods as the real thing, she has committed a criminal offence (meaning an arrestable offense).

However, there could be cases of ppl intentionally buying goods that may be fake, with the intention of charging the seller commiting criminal cheating or claiming damages in a civil code by suing the seller.
The police would investigate your statements made in the police report, and that is all they go by- (report would be handed to the investigating officer) so you have to be sure to provide the honest and correct perspective of what exactly happened. Therefore make sure a third party would be able to clearly understand your case as typed in the police report as whether the investigation officer will take action as a criminal or civil (not handed by police) hinge on the wording of the police report made.
If you have any other assistance you may ask here or seek advice from a pro bono lawyer (legal aid at maxwell or community justice centre @ Singapore state's court's)
I think hor ... Can go to this govt department called CASE . If they cannot help u .... Then think no hope Liao .
always be careful man, online not safe haven
Who are you?
If the bag somehow looks authentic , tell your heart it is and continue to use it like it is real stuff.. No choice
