How it works:
- Version 1: some massage parlours/spas do not list prices on their menus. If you do not check before engaging their services, you can be hit with a bill 2-3x the actual price.
- Version 2: you may be told a certain rate at the start, but when it is time, you are told an inflated fare thanks to certain hidden fees and taxes.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- It is easy to avoid this scam as long as you have done your research, head to reputable places and clarify prices and any additional fees/taxes before committing to the service.
