Is there scam going on at Shangri-La mall parking lot?
Posted on

This Sunday afternoon after buying a puppy (yes we got one), the kids and I decided to go to Shangri-La mall’s pet store on the 5th floor to buy some supplies.
I asked the driver if our van can go up and he said yes. So we went up. Normally we are asked to pay for parking before we head upstairs. This time there was nobody to collect money, no automated machine. Nothing.
So the car went up.

After going to the pet store, we headed out of the parking space. At the exit, a Security guy stopped our car and asked for the parking fee of Php 45. After handing him the money, he said we could go.
Something in my brain clicked and I asked for a receipt. He said there was no receipt.
I said that’s not right. He told me I was holding up the traffic and if I wanted a receipt we would have to go back to the 5th floor and pay there. It sounded weird, so I told him I would report him.
He said go ahead and report him and I can get his name. I said, “What’s your name? Or you know what, I’ll just take your picture.”
He started to get nervous and turn away as I took a few shots.

He told us to move outside as we were holding up the traffic and he became really nice. Then he said he can produce a receipt if we can wait. I said we would wait. It was daytime and I prayed for help.
The Security asked another guy to get a receipt for us.
After many minutes he produced our receipt and we went on our way peacefully. Thank You Lord.

I don’t know anyone at Shang. I have no connections. So if anyone cares, please let Shang admin know that there is a person collecting Php 45 from at the parking lot without receipt. If anybody cares.
I’m just doing my part as an honest citizen to correct if something is wrong.

Ummm…this looks odd and quite exaggerated. To justify my statement. I work in Shangri-la. Not as part of their company but as a tenant. We have been here for 12 years and this is the first time I have heard of this but thank you for sharing. I just have a few questions though. Some of what you said are quite vague and it left me wondering. I’m sorry to assume but I feel that you are leaving out something from the whole story. First of all, what time did you ask your “Driver” to go up the mall? was… Read more »

i want to commend you for doing your part in rectifying such behavior..it is only when we stand up for what is right can we bring about a positive transformation in our country..ang daming kawatan mula sa mga politiko hanggang sa mga ordinaryong mga mamamayan..minsan naiisip ko bakit kaya ganito tayong mga pilipino? dahil lang ba sa kahirapan?it is not a valid excuse..ang daming mahihirap na umunlad ang buhay dahi sa sipag at tyaga..
