In Boleh Land, kiasu things do happen. Star reported that a petrol kiosk operator in Jalan Melang, Kuala Pilah was arrested fro raising petrol price earler than that decided by the gomen. This greedy kiasu operator reportedly raised the price some 30 minutes before 30th April became 1st May. Having just read what Jeff Ooi has to say regarding the petrol kiosk he filled up last night where he was charged the new price some 15 minutes too early, can't help wondering whether this Jalan Melang petrol kiosk also had the star sign. If what Jeff says is true that the servers were clocked ahead of time by this petrol company then many more consumers must have been affected like Jeff. The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs MINIstry should get to the bottom of this. The Star news item said that for an offence committed under Rule 21 of the Control Supply Regulations, the penalty carries a term of up to two years, a fine of up to RM15,000 or both, if convicted. Are there more out there who have been similarly short changed? You can e-mail your complaints, here or ring toll-free number :: 1-800-866-800 in order for the MINIstry to act. The MINIstry website promises an answer within 3 weeks.
