There’s a lot of street scammers in Dubai, especially in the touristy Bur Dubai and Souk areas! They approach you on the street and promise to cure your hair loss or weight issues, but it’s all a scam.
They take you on a shopping tour of multiple stores. The first store is legitimate and you buy a cheap item. Then they take you to 1 or 2 other stores where they, and the store owner, try to sell you grossly overpriced spices for the “hair loss formula.” They’ll try to charge you up to 3000 Dirhams ($800) for their magic cure. Many tourists pay these crazy amounts just to get out of the store.
If you want some real herbal ayurvedic hair loss advice, see “Try Ayurveda for hair loss” https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/beauty/try-ayurveda-for-hair-loss/articleshow/10453366.cms. You can find many such formulas online and make them yourself, or buy readymade from an Indian store.
This miracle cure scam and many others are all across Meena Bazaar. There are people selling fake watches, overpriced dates, low-quality Indian clothing, and counterfeit sunglasses that they will tell you are real. Meena Bazaar, Bur Dubai, Deira, Gold Souk, Grand Souk, Spice Souk, and Utensil Souk are a hub for scammers. Do not trust anyone on the street in Dubai! Shop at reputable stores and not back alley stores.
“A man who works at a shop in Mina Bazaar said he has seen the touts approaching potential victims. “It’s disgraceful how these hawks prey on people’s insecurities. They are master manipulators. It’s a con ring involving the people on street. If I hear people asking for these shops, I warn them it’s a scam,” the man added.
“The shops have legitimate businesses licences and products. But they also sell dud stuff that doesn’t work,” he added.”” – Victims warn of hair-loss ‘cures’ offered by street touts https://gulfnews.com/going-out/society/victims-warn-of-hair-loss-cures-offered-by-street-touts-1.1697435
“Gulf News spoke to Dubai Police about the issue and they said that if a customer feels he or she is annoyed or harassed by the shopkeepers then they can call the police command room on 901 or go to the nearest police station to register a complaint.”
