Three money changer locations have been shut down by local authorities after multiple compaints were received by tourists that had been scammed.
All three operations were located in Legian and had their exchange boards and operational equipment confiscated.
The Bank of Indonesia oversees the money changers and is promising to be conducting more surveillance to protect tourists from fraud.
“We from traditional villages are ready to join in the collaboration. Rather than before, we now feel have the support to respond to this,” said Wasista.
Money changer scams have become so widespread in Bali that there are multiple articles now posted online on how to protect yourself from being scammed.
