    Lin Dan lost money in JB

    .
    So... The thread title that winnie had selected (with the question mark) is correct. It was a question, not a statement.

    Perhaps the thread could have been titled "Lin Dan lost money in JB". :eek::eek::eek:

    what I see here is imagination + prejudice.
    we are not child; we all know what kind of trick of this "deposit" thing, all over the world, not only in JB.
    even if u do not like sb, this is still not the justification u can applaud his misfortue.
    I am not going for a debat here. period.

    Provided this incident actually happened. It wasnt reported in the English or Malay or mainstream Chinese press (Nanyang & Sin Chew).
    Anyway, from my own experience, the dealer/owner normally wouldnt refund the $$$ but allows the customer to choose another model. And they tell the customer upfront. If they dont I would think LD is smart enuf to ask if the deposit is refundable if he rejects the particular hp model.
    It's bad for business if they outright refuse to refund - unless LD refuse to purchase other models.

    TO be fair to both sides, there are difficult customers who are very fussy & then accuse sellers/dealers of cheating them when the customer dont like the product - whilst agreeing to all the terms & conditions before that. After that, bad mouth the seller.
    If you're in the customer service/sales line you would know.

    Or could just communication problem. Though Mandarin is widely spoken in Msia, I find China's Mandarin a bit tough to understand at times.
