For any EXO-L the thought of a themed EXO cafe sounds like a dream come true. Not too long ago, Malaysian EXO-Ls thought the dream was finally going to become a reality only to find out that it could very well be a scam.
Last month, EXO-Ls were celebrating the news that an EXO themed cafe called Brussette Cafe would be opening up in Kuala Lumpur. The cafe promised to have all sorts of albums, DVDs, and fansite goods on display with lots of good food and games for EXO-Ls to play while there.
With the cafe originally projected to be open at the end of April, many fans are now saying they believe the project to be a scam. Several netizens have noted that the cafe seemed rather suspicious. They’ve been pointing out the problems with the logo and poster designs…
You know what, based on these 4 images, we can already conclude that @brussettecafe is cancelled!
You're opening a HUGE cafe, with a HUGE cost. And yet, why cant you hire a decent graphic designer to create a nicer logo & posters? 🤦🏻♀️ fishy af…#TBC please stop fooling around❌ pic.twitter.com/6tNTCUHH6w

Been feeling rather taken aback at the number of chegs that were originally reported to work there…
and then 9 chefs? And 2 of them are top chefs from the hotels in dubai?! Wow sis? TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. Gaji 2.2k? Fresh grads pun susah nak dapat gaji around that and this cafe senang je nak bagi gaji macam tu? uhhhh k.

And felt very wary of the cafe when they failed to update fans on where the cafe was going to be located and how renovations to the building were coming.
so its time for you guys give us exact address or some photo of renovation you know ? or maybe your crew shirt who coming this morning or freebies that u want to give us . If you do like that , i dont think we exols want to bash you . @brussettecafe 🙏❤

so like they announced that it’ll be in Mont Kiara and it’s a house turned cafe but if u know MK, you’d know that there’s no house that’s open to public?? like the houses there are either condos or in a guarded neighbourhood

Although fans do not know the reason why the cafe is potentially trying to scam EXO-Ls, some believe it may have to do with the personal information they are getting from resumes. EXO-Ls have been warning everyone about the possible danger.
this is not a playground for u nak main main…imagine hundreds of resumes been sent to u…what are u going to do with all that private information??? @brussettecafe prove us wrong if we really wrong…i dont take all your bullshits. u have no right to threat us.

Cafe Brussette, meanwhile, issued a statement that they would be taking action against those saying their business was fake shortly before deleting all of their social media accounts.
