They are probably in on the SCAM.....

Probably the same as Pattaya where these bars are often owned by the police.

The scam is well know to residents of the northern Thai city

Exactly, hence they know that anyone who enters the establishments in this area is a tourist who'll be easy to rip off.

There're loads of KOs where the locals go, never heard of scams at those places.

Dual pricing rears its ugly head once again. Foreigners often have to pay 20,000 to 30,000 Baht for nothing.

Nice to see that the local establishments there are non-discriminatory in their scamming...

 

Usually it's the tourists who get nicked, or at least, those are the cases we end up hearing about.

 

Probably no foreign tourists around so they tried a local tourist out of desperation.

Police were initially useless when he complained. 

Standard procedure over here. Money talks.

A foreigner would have been charged 10x more.

Instead of doing that the driver took him to a dark back entrance of a karaoke lounge in Chang Khlan district.

The man said he went in and before he knew it he had been given a bottle of Sang Som Thai rum, three or four bottles of soda and a bucket of ice. 

I'd have had the right a*se if they gave me a bottle of that stuff too ..

Racist to assume that his favourite tipple was Sang Som Thai rum.  😉

 

Same for a Jamaican.  Twelve cans of Red Stripe would have appeared.

Double standards. They didn't beat him as they do while they're fleecing the westerner.
