In May 2022, two American tourists were trapped by a bar in Mykonos. Upon entering, they had to pay a bill of €600 for two cocktails and two crab claws. A totally exorbitant sum. But they don’t want to let it go. Don’t worry, Objeko’s editorial staff will tell you everything about it. Are you ready ?
A well-crafted scam
It is an incredible story that we are going to tell you now. That of a girl and her mother on vacation in Mykonos. As you probably know, Greece and its paradise islands are often very popular with tourists. And in particular the island of Mykonos which sees an influx of thousands of travelers each year. But if the place looks beautiful, sometimes there are scams. And precisely, we are going to tell you about one of them.
Two American tourists were on vacation in Mykonos. While strolling, they are slapped by a barker. This is the name of the employee, which is in charge of picking up passers-by and convincing them to enter the restaurant. Thus, we learn that the latter declared to the two women: “Theythrew himself in front of us and began to say emphatically, “Sit here! Sit here ! “. They decide, somewhat constrained, to consume two drinks. Big mistake.
Payment under threat
At first glance, the DK Oyster restaurant looks like any bar/restaurant. Yes, but only at first glance. Indeed, the young women took two mojitos as well as an aperitif-style plate of crab legs. Nothing exorbitant then. Yes, except that the bill amounted to 520. Finally, 600 euros when you add the 80 euros of obligatory tip. Inevitably, when they realize the price, neither of them rushes to pay the bill. The two women, scandalized by the price, even completely refuse to pay.
A restaurant manager then arrives. He allegedly threatened the two women, saying in particular:I’ll call the police. They will keep you here and you will not return to your country. We can easily find where you live.” After minutes of negotiations, the two women pay under duress. While warning other visitors of the deception:“That’s when the bar owner came out furious and also threatened us. » Frightened, they finally ended up leaving this establishment.
Scam: a restaurant known for this type of process
But the two young women are not going to stop there. Indeed, they made the decision to sue the bar. According to his lawyer, his customers suffered threats and unfair treatment from the restaurant. It must be said that this is not the first time that the DK Oyster has been singled out. A website has even been created solely to denounce the actions of the unscrupulous owners of the restaurant. Like what, you have to be very careful when you go on vacation.
