Scam continues

Hi I echo the other comments and let you know that the 10TL scam at the AZDA supermarket is alive and well and was tried on 02-09-10. Again there was not a flicker of concern and the girl on the checkout just seemed to be annoyed I had corrected the mistake !! you dont get an itemised receipt and you cant see the runing total display ...... The other scam is no price on certain beach goods and they seem to make up a figure as they go along ....

Cheers for the heads up. Happened to me twice last year down in OD. No apology, no acknowledgement of wrongdoing, just a 'it's a fair cop' shrug of the shoulders.

I'll just try and avoid Azda when I go back.

Jonny - might be worth explaining what the scam is, as new readers will have no idea what you are on about.

I have been short changed in Carrefor Supermarket, never a flicker when I pointed out I needed some more money. So I always check prices as they ring them up, & on the receipt. Just makes you extra careful.

Hi all,

Just to add... this is nothing new and certainly not limited to Turkey.

Have had it tried on me in many places from Singapore to London.

So be careful and check your change everywhere you shop.

The only place I have not had it tried on me is in Oman.

Hi

Happened to me in Olu Deniz Azda last week - short changed by 10 Lira and then made to feel uncomfortable when I pointed it out. I thought it was a one off with one greedy employee but obviously not!

This is theft, simple as that, and I think the best thing to do is to start a thread and keep it bumped up to teach them a lesson. The Azda at Oludeniz has had some really bad press this season and unfortunately it could be one 'bad apple' in the staff but it needs sorting asap, it's happened to too many people for it to be classed as genuine mistakes.

I'm going to be watching out for their unscrupulous tactics on my next visit.

Strangely enough we were in Azda , Hisoronu and almost got charged 15 Lira for 2 x Coconut Macaroons on the Bakery Counter but my ever observant wife spotted it immediately ......we put it down to human error but not so sure reading these other posts.
