PHUKET: A motorbike rental company in Rawai is offering a reward for information that leads the recovery of Honda CB 1000 that was rented and not returned by a man who presented a Ukrainian passport, which the company now believes may be fake.

 

“We bought the motorcycle in December 2018. It’s a new model. Very few of these have been bought in Phuket, probably less than 10, and this one is red, of which there are only two or three on the island maximum,” explained Frenchman Patrice Ardennes French, shareholder of the rental company Thairoadways and partner of the company director, Inpoo Vorapitcha.

 

“This Ukrainian guy rented the bike for three days (from Mar 6-9). He left his passport as deposit, signed the rental contract, paid the rental amount and went off on the motorcycle,” Mr Ardennes said.

Good  maybe now these crooks that rent motorbikes will stop asking to keep your passport and not returning it when you refuse to pay some outrageous damage repair costs.

I am in hotel business, this is most certainly  fake passport. I have had a few Ukrainians and theirs did not look like that. Unless it’s a new one but highly unlikely. Never seen Ukrainian document with red logo , red is not Ukrainian colour, looks more Estonian or Latvian or Lithuanian

Not possible, would not be accepted without export permit and other papers , unless they left original book with the bike.

 

i would say crashed it or sold it or used parts for his own one

So, were there any visas or stamps in the passport? That would show if passport is fake or not. I doubt the owner would have fake stamps in his passport.

Which red logo?

The one in the upper left is the (international) symbol for a biometric passport issued since 2015.

And I see misc. samples of Ukrainian passports (non fakes) where it is in red.

 

And the article says that the passport had a visa from the Thai embassy in Kiev.

Also fake?

It's worth reading the whole article with the comments from Thai immigration official!

(left Thailand on February 27????)

 

Interesting to see that a search for "ukrainian passport" ends with tons of "fake passport" entries.

I am telling you what I see and I am certain I see more than you. But whatever rocks your boat. 

 

I have not seen the visa nor am I an immigration officer to comment on visa authenticity

Yet you didn’t know that the ‘logo’ means that his biometrics are included in the ‘biometric RFID strip’ in the passport. 

 

Examples from Wikipedia below...   How certain are you that you know more than BENQ and what about rocking boats ?

 

Of course, the passport could be fake... who would steel a bike with their real passport.  Unless something has happened to the lad who rented and they’ll find the bike down a cliff somewhere... but we can’t tell that from a photo that the passport is fake from a photo or because of a ‘red symbol’ !!!!
