Some info on company website.

Haier HSU-12VNS03T(S)

Haier is ready to be the first in Thailand to provide hourly air conditioning service. via  NB-IoT technology  , starting at only  4  baht per hour by using the  Smart Sharing   application, pay how much you spend  Simply register via QR code to register. After that, a staff from Haier will contact you back and make an appointment to install the air conditioner without any fees or additional installation costs.

Sounds like if approved the initial install and setup is free.  Then you pay as you use the service.

I can see the good and bad.  If you can't afford the total cost or monthly credit this is another way to afford AC.  I want to know are the payments for the life of the unit or until you have paid a certain amount.

Is a big Rip-off  why they do not warn these companies with such a rip off if I do that I go in jail

Not true.  The AC tech deceived this customer.  The product is suppose to be bought through Haier not 2nd hand.  Haier would explain the obligations prior to installation.
