British expats didn't falsify income claims. They provided documentary evidence to the embassy regarding their income and no, it wasn't easy to forge those documents. The British Embassy letter clearly stated to TI what documents they had seen and based their income verification on. No lies, no deception involved. You have had this explained, in detail, to you before.

 

Change the record.

I know of 2 British people who have gained visa extensions since January 1st. Embassy letter, no supporting evidence, no problem. Jontien Immigration consistently give the message out that all embassy letters will be accepted for 6 months post the date of issue.

You need to give more information on that.

Pattaya is very easy and friendly for people using an Embassy Letter to get a Retirement Extension.

This person must have been very "special" in some way ??

Change the record.

And you have been repeatedly told that the embassy could not do what TI wanted them to do (the embassy's public explanation). If you don't want to believe it and start making up conspiracy theories, then maybe it should be you that "changes the record".

Simple and easy to do but a fiddle and a lie. BE letters information could easily be 'falsified'.

Not as easily as a Stat Dec or affidavit. 

Anyhow the guy can now use income, and transfer the money back again same same.

You are wrong! The BE  only stated what they were shown. That may not have been accurate.

 

For example, and this is 100% accurate. I know of one British National personally who didn't have enough pension each month, so three months before he needed the income letter he transferred £500.00 from one UK account to the second UK account then sent it back again two days later labelled as 'rent' (from a fictitious house rental) to show an extra monthly income he didn't actually have. With him showing three months bank statements the BE gave him a letter showing his pension and rent income totals which was more than enough to satisfy his income requirements. He just relied on nobody checking his rental claims.

 

Simple and easy to do but a fiddle and a lie. BE letters information could easily be 'falsified'.

 

So please stop your inaccurate comments and Change the Record!!!!! 

I've also witnessed an annual pension statement letter, entered as x 12 on the application form.

A difference of some 16K a year in the stated income as opposed to the actual income.

Been doing the same thing for the last 17 years.

A lot of expats aren't IT literate.

They don't own a PC.

Don't have internet banking.

 

With the new requirements they've now been thrown into the 21st century, which is akin to living on Mars for them.

Which is exactly why Immigration wanted income letter information to be confirmed as accurate.

 

He can't transfer the money back round if he has to show official documentation as to the source of the income he's declaring.
