Hi Guys

 

Sorry not to have replied before.

 

Agree with all or most of what has been said.

 

I have been coming to Thailand since 1986 and, apart from one attempt at overcharging in Patpong, I have never been ripped off. I also had photo sessions with a couple of girls at Stringfellows last year and no problem.

 

It was 1st May, the day of my arrival. I was not drunk. I normally drink soda water (too many calories in beer). I guess my attitude at the time was "just put it down to experience" but yes, I should have made a note of the girls's name / number in order to warn others. I did tackle her (she was sitting outside) but had obviously hidden or passed on the cash by then and any misdemeanour would have been very difficult to prove. Yes, I'm 100% certain I had the cash as I'd just changed some dollars. She had been sitting with me "entertaining" me, massaging my legs etc as they do. The cash was in my hip pocket and she must have slipped her fingers into my pocket.

 

Yes, Thais see farangs as super-rich and some would see us as "easy-pickings". I don't think that's any excuse for theft, though.

 

As someone has suggested, I was lucky to get away without paying the bill. It was only 80-100 baht. I told the cashier she could call the cops if she wanted to but she declined and just let me go. I speak Thai to some degree which may have helped. The fact that I was allowed to leave may suggest that it has happened before and they didn't want the police involved.

 

THe Land of Smiles redeemed itself somewhat a few nights later when I had ST with lady from what I think is A-Bar, Soi 6. I explained I had very little cash on me and she said I could call the next day with the balance!! I did.

Steve when you say you tackled her, is that a metaphor or did you actually tackle her to the groud outside? That should more than identify her, or just look at the pics in the Stringfellows thread to point her out.

There is a week after the incident and you don't care even to say a name here and just inform the others, I would expect you to do the least and ask the name of this girl when you left out the door, you do not even remember her face....

 

I never had a problem visiting a Bar or a Disco with LB's slipping their lil fingers in my pockets, I had only an incident through late hours in Coconut Bar with an LB that end very bad for her as he tried to mug me on the beach, he messed with the wrong person I guess....

 

I am sorry that I don't believe a word of what you are saying without providing the very basics...

The guys getting a bit of a hard time here, give him a chance to go through the pics and see if he can identify the bugger.

 

He seems like a nice chap so perhaps he doesn't want to and is willing to chalk it up to experience and doesn't want a big deal made of it. :huh:

 

He was only try to give us the heads up.

 

Quite right petesie, I was a little sceptic at first but now he has replied to his initial post I have no reason to doubt him..

Thanks Bob

 

I have looked through the mug-shots but I'm reluctant to name names unless I'm 100% certain, which I'm not. I've already acknowledged that I was wrong in not trying to ascertain the identity of he individual before I left. I merely posted this topic as a warning to others, as "Petesie has suggested, which I did in good faith. If anyone wants to call me a liar and be generally unpleasant then so be it. I don't really see any point in me making this up.

Isn't there a video cam at all bars in Pattaya? If so, does the tape show you talking to her as you left the bar ?

Correct, but....In most bars the CCTV footage is stored onto a hard drive and automatically records over the old footage as the hard drive fills up. (I'm sure Stringys has something similar) I'm not 100 % but I think the time frame for storage is either 7 days or 14 days so in this case, I would assume it's now gone.

 

I think from the original post, he spoke with the girl just outside the bar and the cameras are probably set to record the patrons entering/leaving but once through the black curtain to the street, he would be out of sight.

 

Cheers, bob.

I normally take out beforehand the required fund and the tip (if performance merits) and put in one pocket as suggested. I roll up my pants in a certain way and put the pants with my belt buckle facing a certain way. That helps and I only had one time where I came out of a shower and noticed my pants in a different position (short time place in my room I lock up my valuables). Didn't make a scene but let her know after the deed that I knew and got an extra session for it. That is why I prefer to bring them back to my room. I can lock up my stuff and the hotel staff will phone before the girl leaves. I also use a combo lock on my suitcase and camera bag (not all can fit in the safe) and use a bicycle lock to lock my camera bag around something secure (( got a few thousand in equipment I carry). Not fool proof but helps. I don't make a scene about it but if I got my wallet take the time to lock in the safe so they know (again not a short time room). But I will say what others have. If you get a sense something is wrong just cut your losses. Don't let your dick get in the way of common sense (although I have been there and regretted it almost every time).

Nobody is immune to theft, you just do what you can to avoid it. But it happens so often that it's not worth reporting unless it's major money or goods.

 

 

Your not wrong mate, I had 22,500 ( i.e. 25 crisp £20 notes) stolen from my safe in a certain establishment I stayed in last month, despite my threats to call the Police and having looked at the CCTV I got nowhere fast...TIT, needles to say I had to keep a Stiff upper lip and let it go and for sure wont be staying there again...lol

 

As for Stringfellows, Im not a great Go-Go bar fan but I really had a great time in there on my last visit which was made even better by me taking Ice2 upstairs for a most enjoyable romp :)

Are you going to name that establishment so other BM's can be aware?

Every hotel has keys to their room safes. Most the time access to these aren't just managers ... they are any maid, bell boys or maintenance person. Wouldn't be the first time a worker gained access to the master keys (probably kept in an unlocked drawer behind the desk) and cleaned out a safe. Or took just enough to hope the customer wouldn't notice.

 

 

People put too much faith in their room safes. They are good for very basic safety and will only stop opportunist thieves (i.e. a stranger hooker in your room). And this only is in the case for them being in the room for a limited time while you're there with her. Don't think for a moment it's ok to leave them there while you "step out" for a drink with the boys or to pick up sundries.

Owe looked great standing under an umbrella on Soi Buiakaow last night (near Action Street). If it wasn't for the rivers flowing would have scooped her up. :Umbrella:

Steve, has seemed to let it go(doesn't want to name an innocent party)so just consider this a friendly warning and some advice to the guys to watch your pockets.

 

It can happen to any of us, but I seem to find the honest ones I guess?? :blink::)

 

I've only been to LOS 3 times but have never been "ripped off" ever, maybe I'm just lucky as I'm a bit of a soft touch for sure. :)

 

Thanks Steve for this(also thanks for not naming a culprit without knowing exactly who she was!)Army%20Salute.gif respect,given!

 

Iceberg :)

All room safes have a default key in number in case dickheads - like me - forget the number they have keyed in. If staff know the number it is as easy as abc to open the safe and remove the contents.

nothing wrong with putting your faith in a in-room safe...it's the hotel/guest house that the in-room safe resides in that makes all the difference in the world.
