Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got scammed on very first trip to Thailand, and it was by a farang. I landed and was waiting for my bags and he came over and started talking to me, after he found out I was getting a taxi he asked is he could split the fare with me so I said yes, but was very vague in where he was going. I kept asking him where he was staying but just said near nana (as I told him my hotel was near nana), anyway we got to my hotel and he just got out and walked off before I knew what was happening!

 

Also been done by the "I'm just going to the toilet" and been left with his check bin scam by a farang too, luckily it was only 2 beers.

I had it myself three years ago. My Bankcard suddenly didnt work anymore. I took some cash with me and when i arrived in BKK i tried my card at the ATM. Because it worked then i first spend all my cash. After a week when a ran out of everything i tried all the ATM´s and a get the same error everywhere..

I just met an Australian guy and i told this guy my problem. The day before we had agreed we would go out all night so i told him that because of my problem i had to stay in the Hotel. I told him that i tried to get in touch with my family and was hoping to get it solved in a couple of days...

The guy picket up his wallet and gave me six thousand baht and said that a could pay him back whenever it was solved....

I was really happy with this guy!!

The other day i pay him back and we spend the rest of the vacation drinking an partying together...

 

Just saying sometimes people can really need your help------

easiest things to do is to say you have no money when these scammers come around - the same as dudes asking for cigs- it's my last one etc

Does anyone carry a paupers wallet?

 

I carried one in C.A. Never had any trouble though.

 

It's a wallet with expired credit cards, license and and $10. in small notes.  You carry the real stash in another pocket, waist area, ect.

 

Do you have a sign on your back stating what pocket your wallet is in so the thief is sure to grab the fake one?

Ok. Here's my tale. Very fresh.

 

I arirved this morning at Frankfurt Airport. Didn't a cig for about 20 hours (no smokimng in Beijing).

Went ouside to have a smoke an italian guy approached me and asked for a light.

I gave him my lighter and the he asked where his mother would land fron Napoli. I told him that I didn't kmnw and told him, to ask at the informatuion desk.

Then he askes me to look at his phone where his mom perhaps was. I did look, and, and the same time I heard the sipper on my travel bag opening.

This prick tried to steal my stuff from inside of by bag. Money, Passports perhaps. Crookes everywhere. Beware.

One stock response that never fails ,tell em all to fuck off and keep the pocket shut .

 

You're right Albert. I was just trying to be friendly. I wasn't drunk and I told him to fuck off.

He did fuck off with my lighter. Sigh. I'm too good for this world.

That's what I thought, a many years ago now met a young Scottish lad who was staying in Asia hotel, had no money only had one meal a day as he was on Bed and Breakfast.

Felt sorry for him so as I left I cashed my last travellers cheque of £50 and gave him the cash. Exchanged addresses for him to send me the money when he returned. Needless to say despite my many attempts to contact him, never got any reply.

My faith in human nature shattered once again.
