Several recent posts have been removed from this thread because of intemperate accusations against forum members and others. Rather than removing the thread completely I have locked it and left it in place as it includes some useful discussion.
One post that has been removed makes the point that Singapore is known to be the base for some fraudulent guitar sellers and that the Internet is rife with this kind of deception. I'm no judge of this comment myself, but it seems to have been made on the basis of some knowledge.
