BEWARE of this cheater Agent - Franco Ong Kim Huat 9437 2658
I am writing this cos' I hope every agent here is aware about his
misdemeanour. And I've checked up with his co boss, who
coincidentally is mine, that i'm NOT the first agent who has
complaint against him. I am the 4th to complaint against him now (and
God knows how many more goes unreported). I am very very pissed as we
have worked closely on other projects before and he's the last person
whom I think will play me out by not paying us our due commission.
I co-broked one private sale recently (i'm the buyer & agent as well)
and supposed to receive my due commission by 5th March 2007. Due to
some reason, the co-broke letter was not signed cos' both of us were
kind of 'close' partners before, and I trusted him. But this ass gave
many reason like there is penalty charges to the seller and thus
seller cant disburse the comm yet blah blah...so i decided to call
the seller's lawyer earlier and guess wat, the comm of $5170 was duly
collected by FRANCO ONG on 3 Mar 2007!! FYI, my bank referral fee
goes into his fat pocket also.
So my partner sms him earlier about the truth we discovered and he
threatened that he will make police report against us for harrassing
him. What a joke huh?! I have called up those being 'cheated' agents
and we will lodge a combined police case against this cheater. We may
decide to go to the lawyer as well. Those agents are ones with co-
broke letter signed somemore and Franco still has the cheek to do
If any agent has this experience before, kindly advise our recourse.
We are all prepared to forgo our comm but we would not let this
cheater continue his misdeeds again.
Thanks for listening and I've really learnt a very very good lesson
from this experience. Hope everyone here benefits.
