Deal.com.sg's untrustworthy countdown timer

"Today's Deal : 51% Off Authentic Malaysian Cuisine @ PappaMia. Only $14.70 for $30 voucher!"

(NB: The link will only be valid today, after which the URL will change to http://www.deal.com.sg/deal2 and so on, which incidentally strikes me as stupid (a permalink would be much better) but I didn't raise USD$1 million in November, so what do I know?!)


Screenshot taken on Thursday, 3rd February, 2:05pm:


"Time left: 10 hours 55 minutes 10 seconds"

This would place the closing time of this deal at 1am on Friday, 4th February.

Yet, a screenshot taken on Friday, 4th February, 12:17pm shows:


"Time left: 12 hours 43 minutes 11 seconds"

This would place the closing time of this deal at 1am on Saturday, 5th February - 24 hours later than what we were told, yesterday, was the original closing time.

Note: this is the same deal

So far I've not seen this sort of deception on the other group buying websites.
