Not recommended – Cocomo ‘go go club’

2014/03/16

‘Would you like to come to Cocomo, we’ve got beautiful girls?’. Any man wandering along the deptak in Szczecin after 8.00 p.m. is certain to be approached by one of the ‘pink umbrella girls’. Perhaps even by two or three. And they will never take ‘No’ for an answer.

‘Cocomo’ go go club, Szczecin

Should men allow themselves to be dragged into such a ‘den of iniquity’? Before setting foot in Cocomo, please be aware that the company ‘Ewent’ from Kraków which runs the ‘Cocomo’ chain is owned by one Jan S, currently awaiting trial on fraud charges.

On 11 march, 2014, Poland’s leading liberal newspaper ‘Gazeta Wyborcza’ published two articles about ‘Cocomo’ go-go clubs, which are now present in most of Poland’s major cities, including an anonymous interview with a female employee of Cocomo Szczecin.

The newspaper reports on the case of ‘Mateusz’ who entered Cocomo Poznań and left 5k PLN poorer, having lost consciousness after apparently only having drunk a single beer. ‘Mateusz’ reported the matter to the police, and is now awaiting the results of a drugs test to determine whether his drink had been interfered with.

According to the Poznań police, 12 similar complaints have been made in the city. Further similar accusations have been made by Cocomo customers in Warsaw, Kraków, Gdańsk, Sopot and Kielce.  The police have suggested that identical accusations from a number of Polish cities cannot all be coincidental.

One of the complaints was from a Pole who had been working in Norway, and had had two sums of 15k and 29k PLN debited from his account. Initial tests suggested he had been drugged.

The record formost money spent in Cocomo in an evening is apparently held by a Swede, who is said to have lost consciousness after purchasing two bottles of champagne. His evening in Cocomo set  him back a whopping 98k PLN (20k GBP, 25k EUR).

Sz-n.com therefore suggests that unless you have a strange desire to prove the old adage ‘a fool and his money are soon parted’ correct, or else wish to improve the bank balances of Polish fraudsters and gangsters, then please ignore the entreaties of the ‘pink umbrella girls’.

‘Cocomo’ – just say ‘No’.

    Thanks for interesting article. Gangster-run places like Cocomo should be closed down, but our corrupted authorities have some stakes in it, no doubt. And this ridiculous canvassing of prostitution by rude girls is simply something that should be prosecuted.

    another victim of this scam, 1200€ stolen from my bank account (thanks god I had a lower limit than many other people), which I am pretty sure I never authorized. With this kind of places in the main square of many polish cities with total impunity after so many reports, I am even afraid of going to the police. Something smells really really bad there. Already contacted my bank, I hope I can get the money back.

    One more! I lost 12’000 EUR 2 days ago. I do not remember what happened. I drunk one beer. After this full blackout. A report was made at the police station. They have a questionnaire especially for Cocomo. The police officers were kind, but they told that they can’t act against them because officially they are clean. It’s very clever. One mafia boss getting rich. If you want to get in touch with me feel free.

    Me too, ended up being charged £12,000 last week, don’t remember anything from 12.30am to 4.30am. I hope my credit card company will be able to sort it out.

    Me too, Gdansk £4000 down the drain, I only had a few drinks from about 9pm, boss then brought in some “free” shots….. credit card required…. type in pin number……free shot…. credit card required…can’t stand.. helped to toilet sick in basin…credit card required to clean toilet (loss of earnings)… find my self outside on the pavement on all fours…..police turn up and take me back to hotel. Wake up next morning with no headache or sickness (so not drunk last night!), looked at credit card slips, couldn’t believe the totals and even more strange that the time on the slips were mostly around 1:40 am!! I went to police but they said without a blood test nothing could be proved, as I was going home to England the next day and I didn’t want to spend the rest of my holiday in a hospital! and now I guess it’s too late to do anything apart from cash in my two ISAs and try to pay off the credit card bill before Christmas.
