As I said before ..if he was starting to get bullied by the sons...that was the time to leave ..it appears he's being "bone headed" about all this.

  His tune might change if he's informed that he will be receiving a bill for the cost of the emergency services that had to attend the scene to avoid a situation of him possibly jumping to his death.

 

"if he was starting to get bullied by the sons...that was the time to leave" - and go where? 

 

Can you name a place in Thailand where tourists are not scammed, in one form or another?

I think the Brit has more then a few screws lose to let it go on like this. Threatening suicide and not even listening to the embassy. The guy must be mentally unstable. Maybe he is worried he wont get his deposit back or whatever. I am not so sure anymore it the Thai owners mistake the guy just seems too crazy.

His deposit if any will be 1 month rental.

Not sure what is in the contract, but it just seems the guy is going overboard. The embassy is there police and who know who else and he is ignoring them all. Those are not the actions of a guy in his right mind. Staying locked in all the time, no food getting in. Sounds a lot like someone who lost the plot. Its not as if this is going to away automatically and the guy is just ignoring it all.

If someone could get a message to this poor guy, to join TVForum and let us help him. That's if the mokadons have not cut off his internet.

Agree, I have said from the start his behaviour is unnecessary.

The landlady has to apply for a court order to give people the authority to gain entry, which maybe she is waiting on.

Good point. Guess we can throw away the "I'me mentally distraught" card he is trying to play. The card he has successful used in getting benefits back in Britain.

You clearly know nothing about 'benefits' back in Britain, and why are you even bleating on about benefits anyway?

another cheap n boaring soap opera (Thai? Farang? style); T. May and others (also in Australia) will be ever so happy about crap like this in all of their valuable tabloids because it distracts the entire well- educated population of a developed country from really biting political issues....

No idea but I never got scammed like this, things like this are an exception otherwise Thaivisa would be full of it day in day out. Most people don't get scammed and most people are reasonable this guy seems mentally unstable. He could easily have gotten an other room unless he has no money. Everyone is thinking the Thais are scamming, but it could be the Brit too who does not pay because he thinks he does not get his deposit back. Its close to end of his term maybe he is just not paying in to get his deposit back (illegal) 

 

I've never had this scam pulled on me, but I've had the odd drink put on my bill, now, I pay as I go.  I think you will find a lot of websites on the net warning tourists about scams in Thailand.  Everything from "meter broken" to the jet-ski scam, and many, many more.

 

You do raise an interesting point about the deposit, or bond.  I have heard about the reluctance of Thai landlords to pay back the bond, in full.  Picking out a tiny scratch here, or a piece of mold there.  All BS to get some extra money out of the foreigner.  I believe it is quite common.

 

We don't know the full circumstances in this case, but he did email a media outlet, informing them of his version of events.

 

It will be interesting see how it all ends up.

Do you have a link to his version of events ? But even so he is not that smart if he thinks that this will go away if he locks himself up.

 

The bond might be something in his head I know its common to happen still the action of not paying rent the last months is as illegal as not giving the bond back. Its actually worse as it happens before there is a conflict over the bond. 

 

I gotten my bond back but I rented only once.
