The last place that you’d think would try to scam you would be a pharmacy in a non-touristic area, right?
All medication in Indonesia is stamped with it’s retail price. However this pharmacy in Sumatra has a policy of charging foreigners more than double. The medication I asked for was 22,000 for Locals and 50,000 for foreigners apparently.
The way to deal with such unscrupulous behaviour is to walk away and find an honest business to give your money to. Sometimes it may not seem like a big deal when you know you’re being ripped off for a couple of bucks but if you willingly allow yourself to be scammed then you’re just encouraging the scammers and making it harder for the next potential victim. Next it will be 3x the price, then 4x, and more as long as they can get away with this kind of behaviour.
But a better way is to put them on YouTube and expose their terrible practices to the world.
