Not at all the way it often works here.

 

There is definitely more to this story and before you take action you need to know what it is.

 

Specifically - who they really are and what they want.

 

Loan sharks are a possibility. So are people hired by someone who wants you off your land for some reason.

 

Have you had any offers to sell? Any new development planned in your area?

on a somewhat similiar vein, i have a mate who bought a farm in Chang Rai, married had a son,spent a lot of money making it viable, although lives in the UK been here 30+ times, on last visit (this was 3 years ago) his wifes 2 brothers show up and said if he did not leave he would be buried on the farm, cops care jack shit out in the sticks. so obviously he beat a hasty retreat, this is just to say, be safe out there, as no one has got your back in this country, as said his wife was behind all of this, as she did not lift a finger to stop it.

Thanks to all of you,

The land has the proper title, and if the BiL was doing something bad the policemen would have evidences and would have put him behind bars. After almost 10 months they still have not taken any real action. Only pester everybody, to the point where daily employees do not want to work for us. We are concerned that these bad cops might even want to implant some drugs or God knows what, to later discover it and put the blame on us. As seen in the video enclosed, these guys spread out, and sometime only the MiL is present while the BiL is working in the farm, so she cannot follow each one of them.

It is not easy for us to address such an issue, because we are not on site.

Does anybody know the equivalent of 1111 to be dialed from outside the country?

Thanks again

Agricultural businesses and farms are prohibited to foreigners. Seems like you are using you in-laws to front your business. Under the laws land that has been bought illegally or used for illegal purposes can be confiscated by the Government.

 

Appears the authorities are onto you and by complaining or reporting the matter, you are only going to bring more attention to your illegal activities and probably why you are reluctant to address the issue, so would I be.

Who are "these people"? I know plenty of trustworthy Thais. More likely it's that foreigners - particularly older males with money enough to be worth ripping off - meet female Thais who come from poor, avaricious families, and they have not acquired sufficient understanding of local culture before buying the house, the car etc. In any case, such deceptions are by no means unique to Thailand.

I wouldn't even be concerned about this

He holds no interest in the property as it's his Wife's

They are both overseas & who's not to say that his Wife is not supporting them with her money

Agree, but from experience I know that in the majority of cases of Farlangs married to Thai women, it`s usually the Farlang that puts up the money for homes and businesses.

 

Farlangs can have problems if they begin trending on Thais turf, especially in business and the farming industries, as these days the farmers are enduring very hard times. Too many Farlangs think they can get around the system by finding loopholes in the laws, using Thais to front ownership's, but now the authorities are wise to it. I have no doubts that locals in the area know there is a Farlang involved with that land and in turn the word quickly spreads around. 

 

Very easy to establish, all the police need to do is follow the money trail from purchase and to where the profits from the business are being sent.

I agree with Sheryl above: first, ascertain exactly who these people are - are they even police? Be cautious. Second, if they are real police, do they even have a warrant to search your wife's property? Third, get a clear statement, recorded secretly if necessary, of who is accusing whom, and of what. If they are not real police, or if their actions still seem suspicious, use the 1111 website from outside Thailand: http://www.1111.go.th/?lg=en-US.

 

If you get nowhere with that, the RTA should be your next port of call.

  How does the OP even know that they want money? 11 cameras, but the film was made with a telephone and doesn't show much.

 

    As we all know, many Thais are in debt for playing games, many Thais are involved in drugs, and foreigners are often an easy target. I'd really check on the family first. 

 

   I'd go to the real cops, try to have a chat with the boss, offer some money for help and see what will happen. These people are not cops, and I'd focus on my own family first.

 

   Please be prepared whatever the real cops will find out.

Best to find out the truth first otherwise you might end up looking like a fool.
