*******Scam******Avoid Renting Scooters in Mui Ne Phan Thiet

There's a big ring of motorbike/scooter renters in mui ne and Phan thiet. They will rent you their scooter only for it to break down 2 mins later. Then they will blame you for breaking it and then the police gets in involved..... Long story short is save yourself the headache and avoid these shady people and trouble at all cost.

Tommy it would help if you described where these people that you know of, are located. In that way people can avoid them. There are many many scooters rented daily from Phan Thiet to Mui Ne with no problems that I know of.

Typical first time poster who got challenged by a foreign culture, language and business practices.

Tommy,

There are dozens, or possibly a couple of hundred places that rent motorbikes along the 60 kilometers of Phan Thiet coastline. Most of them are honest, so don't paint them all with the same brush. Which shop/shops were the ones that called the police on you? (Very strange as most of the rental places don't like or trust the police.)
