Beware of Duty Free Shops at Airport

Post by SourabhBasak on Mon Nov 09, 2009 11:23 am

Be very careful in Duty Free Shops.





PASS IT ON TO YOUR FRIENDS WHO TRAVEL A LOT!

An Indian Executive was detained in Bangkok for stealing a box of
cigarettes in a duty-free shop in Bangkok International Airport . He had paid
for chocolates and a carton of cigarettes. The cashier put a packet of
cigarettes extra into his bag and he thought it was a free pack. He was
arrested for shop-lifting and the Thai Police extortion price was 30,000 Baht
for his release. He spent two nights in jail and paid 500 Baht for an
air-conditioned cell, 200-300 baht for each visitor and 11,000 baht for his
final release. The Police shared the money in front of his eyes. On top of that,
he was charged in court and fined 2,000 baht by the magistrate and handcuffed
and escorted to his plane. His passport was stamped "Thief". While
there, his relatives requested help from the Indian Embassy and was told that
they are helpless, many Asians are victimized similarly daily and letters and
phone-calls to the Thai authorities are ignored. He shared a cell with a
Singaporean the first night who paid 60,000 baht for his release. The second
night was a Malaysian national who paid 70,000 baht.

Mind you this was not in a shanty shop in downtown Bangkok but in a duty free
shop at the Bangkok Int'l Airport . BE WARNED. Mr.Rajan Khera's
customer from India faced exactly the same scenario mentioned above when he
was in transit at Bangkok Int'l Airport coming to Taipei .

Someone who went through the same ordeal in Dubai . He bought stuff at the
Duty Free upon entering. The girl at Duty Free put a bottle of cologne in his
shopping bag (he did not even see it happen). He was arrested for stealing
(this is before he even picked up his luggage). He sat at the airport jail
(where he was harassed for the whole day. (NO FOOD, NO WATER) for one day and
only after he paid a fine (bribe of US 500...). That is all the cash he had
in his pocket at the time. They let him go. These are scams that are
happening all over the place. Please BE CAREFUL! All of this is pre-planned
and the people who work at the airport know who to target.

Unbelievable but apply caution.... the duty free employees intentionally put
extra items to scam the passenger and we think that our country is the most
corrupted one.....

ALWAYS TAKE A RECEIPT FOR ANY
FREE GIFT THAT THE DUTY FREE SHOP GIVES. PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND WATCHFUL
WHEN YOU ARE BEING BILLED AND ITEMS PACKED IN INTERNATIONAL AIR PORTS (DUTY
FREE SHOPS).
