  Consumer watchdog CASE's president, Dr TEO Ho Pin, disclosed on 20 Dec 2000 that the Consumer's Association of Singapore had filed 151 complaints this year seeking S$1.4 million in refunds from firms which have engaged in unfair trade practices. It succeeded in getting back 83% of the money. Last year, it managed 70% and the year before, 55%. A total of S$980,000 came from time-share companies. These holiday-package companies, notorious for hard selling, topped the list of businesses which faced complaints this year. (Straits Times 21 Dec 2000)
