If you have noticed, as many people have, food portions getting smaller as prices remain the same, then spare a thought for the unfortunate customers of a popular Bangkok market.
Because one of them has posted a video revealing the scam of a seafood vendor in Bangkok’s Tor Kor market who is hiding nails inside shells to make them heavier, in order to rip customers off.
Rawiporn Imarrom said she had bought seven king prawns for Bt1,900 and found nails in four of them.
It takes an incredibly low intellect to believe that sort of behavior would go unnoticed.
Rawiporn said she had posted the video to warn shoppers, because the market is known for its seafood and she did not expect such behaviour.
After the clip went viral and netizens attacked the shop for cheating its clients, the market’s administration insisted the shop owner return Bt1,900 to Rawiporn and apologise.
They should have also had him arrested and thrown off the market with immediate effect, but there is no mention of that in The Nation’s report.
