STOMPer Annie says she was charged $112 for $77.60 worth of durians by this stall in Geylang Loring 13. The seller had failed to inform her of the price change until after she had consumed the fruit she bought, when it was already too late.
Other STOMPers have experienced such cases of unscrupulous behavior by Geylang durian vendors. One STOMPer was surrounded by aggressive sellers after refusing to pay an inflated price, while another even had a knife pointed at him.
The STOMPer wrote
"We went to Geylang and decided to have durians.
"After we selected two durians which cost $10 each, we decided to get another 'Mao Shan Wang' durian.
"It was labelled $18/kg. After weighing, it came to 3.2kg and we went ahead and ordered it.
"When the fruit was delivered to the table we were sitting at, we offered to foot the bill then and there.
"However, the seller refused to accept cash until we had finished.
"After we finished, the bill came up to $112 (when the actual is $77.6) They did not mention that the ones we had selected was more expensive and it was only when we consumed it that they mentioned the change of price.
"This is literally conning people! Do not go and risk getting conned!
"Their durians are made of gold, three for $112.
"This is located at Geylang Lor 13."
