Strip-club Scandal: Another Man Loses Thousands Overnight

Another man claims to have unwittingly lost thousands of złoty after an evening in a Wrocław strip-club. 

The man's story mirrors that of others who have claimed strip-club staff spiked their drinks in order to gain as much funds from them as possible. 

For those who are unaware of the history of these cases, a few years ago Cocomo strip-club was accussed of spiking customers' drinks in order to get them to make ridiculously high card payments. In 2014, a man trying to get into Princess strip-club (formely Cocomo) was also killed when a bouncer's heavy handed punch did more damage than intended. More recently, in April 2017, a Turkish man myseriously died in the Candy Club strip-club. The police are still investigating that particular case. 

According to Gazeta Wrocławska, the latest alleged strip-club victim is a man referred to as 'Mr. Janek'.

While on a night out Mr. Janek and his friend were reportedly approached on the Rynek by a promo-girl and lured into heading to a club with "dancing girls". Almost immediately after taking their place in the club, the two men were brought a bottle of champagne. They also had to pay for it immediately, however it was only after Mr. Janek saw the paper receipt that he was aware the champagne had actually cost him 20,000zł.

After seeing how much the drink cost him Mr. Janek claims he reacted with fury, prompting the staff in the club th shout "get out of here!" at him. Before he could leave however, Mr Janek says he quickly began to "feel strange" and that the staff somehow encouraged him to stay further and spend more money. 

When Mr. Janek's bank card maxxed out, he pulled out another card from a different bank. Fortunately he was in such a state that he couldn't remember his PIN number, so he "only" ended up losing 38,000zł.

Mr Janek is adamant that he "didn't drink much alcohol" and that his drink was spiked. He has also reported the incident to the police, who are now investigating the matter. 

A few days ago in Gdansk, a man with an almost identical story went direct to the police so that his blood could be examined. According to reports, the blood sample showed that the man was under the influence of "psychotropic substances". The police then subsequently raided the nightclub and carried out tests on the club's drinks. Blood was also collected from other customers who gave their consent. If newspaper reports are to believed, the results strongly suggest that the customer's drinks were indeed spiked.
