Scam in the Maldives

Travel Forums Asia Scam in the Maldives

I would like to warn tourists about a scam common in souvenir shops in Guraidhoo and possibly other inhabited islands in the Maldives. The shop owner will try to persuade you that the price marked in Rf on the item is really an item code and try to charge you approximately five to six times what it's worth.
