Never mess with our love for Durians! >:(
Recently, netizen Chris Goh took to Facebook sharing a video shot by a DBKL officer showing how Durian traders in Jalan Wan Kadir, Kuala Lumpur were caught tampering their weighing and measuring equipment.
The 40-second video witnessed a DBKL operative taking the mickey out of cheating durian traders who apparently deceive the public by using inaccurate weighin scales.
“Let’s try the blue scale first to see how different the scales work.”
“Here’s to all those who lie, cheat and steal.”
Testing the first scale in blue, the durian weighed in at 2kg. However, when the same durian was brought to the green scale, it weighed in at 3.5kg.
A total of 1.5kg difference from the untampered scale! That’s almost double the weight!
Clearly angered by the apparent lack of honesty from such Durian sellers, netizens threw flak at those who cheat unsuspecting buyers.
One netizen urged the public to look out for green coloured stickers issued by KPDNKK to avoid being cheated.
“Scales without stickers are almost certain to be those that are tampered with.”
This is because weighing scales in Malaysia MUST BE certified before they can be used for businesses.
The sticker that you should look out for especially in businesses that utilise weighing scales are almost always green in colour with a use-by-date written on it.
Another urged the public to have a little knowledge when it comes to buying Durians.
“If you don’t have the knowledge, you’ll be f***ed whether it’s from a Malaysian Durian seller or anybody for that matter. I have been buying Durians my entire life and I’ve never been cheated.”
This is unfortunately not an entirely uncommon practice for Durian sellers in Malaysia.
In 2018, 19 Durian sellers in Negeri Sembilan were fined RM5,200 for tampering their weighing and measuring equipment.
We urge members of the public to keep an eye out for these cheaters and report cheating sellers who take advantage of our beloved Durian craze to the authorities.
