Tourist Ripped Off For Over $400 At Candy Bar On Street 136 in Phnom Penh; Bar Girls Laugh at Him

Some dude contacted CEO to tell us that he went to, Candy Bar, drank with the female owner and some skanky bar girls, when some girl he knew came over and told him it's her birthday.

She then put a shit of drinks on his bill, totaling $445. Ouch.

I think he was pissed off then, but lost it when he saw one of the bar girls posting a video of the "birthday party" he sponsored and laughing about the $445 bill they stuck him with.

I'll post the video below, along with a few funny screenshots/pictures, but first, the story in his own words:

"Re: Candy Bar @ St.136, Phnom Penh. Warning of ripoff
I like to highlight to members over here about how I got ripoffoff at Candy Bar.
I hope you can help me highlight my experience.

I was at candy Bar on the 6th May morning and met the lady boss Chea. Had a couple of drinks with her and her few girls. Later 1 of her staff whom I know came and told her that it's her birthday. She threw her an impromptu bday party but she should not have put everyone's drinks into my tab.

My bill came up to $450.

It's ridiculous. Taking advantage of my presence and knowing I had a lot of drinks already she thinks I'm a sucker. I could do much as I was flying off in the afternoon. I had wanted to lodge a police report but time did not permit me to do so.
"

Some other posts about his ordeal:
Spoiler:
Someone forwarded me this video. The person who posted this may think it's funny. When you rip off your customers it's really bad business ethics.

I went to Candy Bar at Street 136 to say hello to Noi Sovichea out of courtesy as always whenever I'm in Phnom Penh. I consider her as a good friend. I always patronised all her bars.
I didn't know this time I'll be rip off of for a bill of almost $450. As on the video, she threw an impromptu birthday party for her staff and she thinks it's ok to put the whole group drinks into my bill thinking I'm drunk enough not to be aware. That's not a very smart thing to do. There's already a lot of bad reviews online and many foreigners who had patronised her bars. Further this bar do not accept credit cards. Be careful of this unethical practise.

Niklas. For the amount, I can easily bar fine 5 girls and go party at IPIC club with 2 bottles of whisky for the whole nite and still have change

i was offered . candy bar .. and the butterfly bar ... for 50 k ..... 3 years ago .......... it was extremely quiet . when i was there 3 years ago .....the worst thing . about . the low season .....theres no one there ... obviously ... ive learned . that lesson . and they wonder . why no one returns ..

You think this is funny? You rip off your customers and you and your staff think is a joke. Just wait and see. Your bars already have enough bad reviews on the internet. See who be having the last laugh.

By the look of the video, he bought every bar girl and ladyboy in the whole joint a lady drink or 2, LoL.

Here's the video of the impromptu birthday party he paid $445 for:

Personally I think there's been a great misunderstanding - here's the birthday girl giving the traditional thumbs-up to thank her generous host for the party:

Doesn't even sound like a free bar fine out of the deal. Sad.

To be fair, it sounds like he was drunk as shit, and maybe he said "sure" when she asked him "wanna buy a round for me and my friends?"

Did they ask him? Did he pay? I would have paid what I thought was right and walked out.

I agree w/ Mackevili.

Unsure if this dude is new to the scene or not but if a girl asks bout buying drinks for friends you NEED to be specific .. specific to the point of coming off rude. The way i try to flip it.. ask the girl, do you want me to spend money on you or your friends? or something along those lines

fuck that..it would still piss me off..

In addition, the first two times I went to candy bar my bills were padded with drinks I most certainly didn't order. First time i put it down to a mistake. Second time it was obviously what they did. Unfortunately I had friends who liked the place so I would find myself going back. I paid per drink from then on.
