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.”

that’s true man, these guys are good at convincing… if you get scammed call the police, just go back to the shop tell them you have called the police already (show them your phone call history to make it convincing), tell them you are going to police station next. They surely will come straight to the point and refund your money. Threat them, don’t go easy on them, they know they are scamming people, they fear the police, and will refund. Use any means possible, if still not done, go to police.

Akseer Marjan from Germany
CBD OIL 😂
from his accent he is not Indian karl bro..he is pakistani
Oh yes I recently faced this nonsense from a few in the bur dubai area on my trip to Dubai. I immediately sensed it and escaped. Those exactly were his words ' If your hair grows back , pray for my good'.
I got cheated today l should have seen this video before.
Bhai I live in dubai and this happen 3 time to my mom
Blackseed oil is actually really good for hair but to force people to buy it based on insecurities is crazy lol
Good content bro…
the guy said u look good but ur not indian when he was selling black seed oil
something i always always do. if scammers take up my time i take their products. all of it and whats in their pocket
Hahaha….almost same thing happened to me last year near Sharaf DG Metro Station in Bur Dubai. The guy pointed out on his forehead and asked for helping me concerning my baldness…bought me Ayurverdic and brought me to the shop for 125 dirhams rubbish spices mixed with it. But then I've upon realized that it was a scam so I quickly got out of the store and runaway for safety. Likewise, one of my boarders, had encountered the same modus, nearby in Al Ghubaiba Metro Station, but he threatened to call a police when he upon realized that something was wrong. I knew then that the store owner was an accomplice. So it is very rampant so be very careful with all these scumbags!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also faced this type scam in dubai meena bazar today
These bastards cheating innocent people. Even shop owners also involved in cheating. Be careful.
Same happend to us
You can actually record in Dubai? When I tried once security chased me off. I guess on scruff streets they don't care
if they ever ask your indian say no im british or amarican reson they ask is they then cominicate to each other without you knowing what theyre saying. that way you can get 1 over on them.
Man pls report them they ruining the beauty of the city they come from their countries to scam the other people pls Karl report them to the police
