China Watch Blog wishes to warn shoppers who want to purchase fruits to beware of this trick used by a fruit seller at one of the shops at the Causeway Bay market.
As yours truly walked up to the shop and was about to pick up a bunch of grapes, the shop keeper in a flash took another bunch of grapes and put it somewhere behind the exhibited fruits, but little did I know that it actually hid a weighing machine.
So, when I handed the man a bunch of grapes, he took it and put it behind the boxes of fruits onto the weighing machine, and you guessed it right. He also included the earlier bunch of grapes he had put there.
So instead of having to pay about HK$20 for the bunch of grapes I picked, he charged me HK$45 for two bunch of grapes, which I was fooled into buying.
When I went to wash the grapes, only then did I realise I had been had.
