British tourist forced to apologise after being caught trying to pull insurance scam on Koh Samui

A British tourist has been forced to apologise after being caught out in an insurance scam while holidaying in Koh Samui.

 

Adesanya Olamide Omolaja, 35, had told police how he was robbed at knife point by three men who stole his backpack.

 

Omolaja claimed the robbers escaped on motorbikes with his backpack, which he said contained an Apple MacBook.

 

He then filed an official police report in order to try and claim on his insurance.

 

However, after checking CCTV footage, police saw that when Omolaja had left his room in Bophut he did not have a backpack with him.

 

He was also with a woman, which contradicted his claim that he had been alone during the time of robbery.

 

Omolaja was then arrested on June 14 and admitted that his Apple MacBook had actually been lost back in London.

 

Details of Omolaja’s arrest were posted on the Surat Thani immigration website.

 

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Omolaja said:

 

“As you have seen from the video that was what happened to me the other day. I guess the lesson here is that when you come over to Thailand, just be straight up with the police. Don't lie.. again, I took bad advice and see where it landed me.'”

 

“Again, I'm sorry to Thai people for my misconduct. And if you come to Thailand try not to get yourself into this kind of problem, as I did. Don't lie, just be honest with the police, because they will check, and you might get into a lot of trouble.''

How about saying sorry to all the people who pay inflated insurance prices to cover scamming pricks like you who get away with it?

"Lieutenant Colonel Varong said such frauds also damaged the image of tourist resorts"

 

 

 

The report wouldn't be the same, without throwing that old chestnut in ! :giggle:

"British"  right,Bernard was right

Yes British. The world is just a small village. A particular name doesn't belong to any specific country. Maybe it hurts but who can stop the wave with his own hands?

The imbecile should have been locked up. 

People like him are Common Criminals who cause priblems for the Police, make Thailand look bad and cause Insurance Premiums to go through the roof.

Hope the Scumbag is never allowed back here.

MW was referring to the people that do get away with it.

Many people see this as a victimless crime, which it is not.
