What can be worse than getting stood up on a date?
Perhaps your date running away after a Rs 16k bill.

It turns out scams like these are happening at many cafes in Rajouri Garden, with a possible group of people running a chain of scams through dating apps.
Someone who fell for this scam found out that the menu they were given was different from the one available online.
When they asked the waiter about it, they were told that it was an old menu.
A person narrated a similar incident that happened with their friend at a place called Judge and Jury at Hudson Lane, Delhi.
DailyO reached out to the manager of Judge and Jury, Kishore who denied these allegations saying no such incident occured at the place.
Meanwhile the call to The Race Lounge and Bar in Rajouri Garden went unanswered.
Looks like we got another reason to stay single.
