Kuramae at Pacific Mall? Dear god... why did you even go there in the first place?
When everyone tells you to actively avoid a store, there's usually a reason. Now there's one more reason.
Kuramae is even used as an example for newbies of places where they will get ripped-off.
Go with folks who are on our doctor's list. At least they have proven themselves.
So all in all the secrecy was not needed except to enlighten other new players.
Maybe the mods should create a list of places to avoid like the plague, then this shit would only happen to those who dont do some research.
But when I think about it, if you dont use the lists we have, it becomes your problem if you get screwed.
