Delhi scams: Paddling bills and weights and measures

IMG_7051

This scam concerns convenience stores, paddling bills and weights and measures.  Wondering what it is?  Read on. 

A  favourite of stores and delivery boys is to alter receipts, add to the bill and pocket the difference.

So, check bills carefully and give the grey matter a chance to check up on the shop keeper’s arithmetic.

Another way to increase profit margins or pocket some extra cash is to provide fruit and vegetables that are underweight.

Remember that not everyone uses electronic scales so don’t be pedantic, but don’t be taken for a ride either.

There’s no doubt other scams and stuff I’ve missed, so if you come across something others should know, then share it with me.
