Video: Caught in the act! Foreigners stealing Thai jobs on Samui say operators

Recommended Posts

 
Actually its you, you are the problem if you think you deserve to only pay poverty wages just because that is what some out of touch policy makers decided was good enough for them. 

And stop pretending that a taxi driver asking for a higher fare is either a scam or a criminal, its up to you if you use their service or not.  Protecting criminals?  Just how shelteted has your little life been so far?  The criminals are the policy makers not the taxi drivers who cant afford to feed their families on the fares they stipulate.
 
How about helping lift people from poverty instead of throwing your toys out your pram because a taxi driver asks you for a few dollars?
 
Its high time the taxi drivers went on strike, entitled sorts wont like it, but most Thai's will support it, most are appalled by the low wages and always tip, but some greedy foreigners, they play victim, an absolutely pathetic level of entitlement.
I always tip lol

I just don't tip scammers that exploit people at night who have no other way to find home.


If you want to help than donate money to schools and kindergartens.

Or give them work that pays well enough for their living.



I hope you also tip the 7 11 and family mart cashiers, those are the ones who work 10 hours a say for 300 baht.

Those taxi mafia scammers are the reason other honest thais there can't survive because people are not coming anymore - but that concept is too hard for you to grasp.

You want me to "grasp" your little fantasy that its taxi's putting off tourists?  Do you also want me to ignore the likes of the airport monopoly prices and the weakening of the Yuan against the Baht?  Sure, its the taxi driver they havent even met yet, you know exactly what you're talking about.

Yeah i do.

 

Multiple people here in the thread complained about the ripoff prices from bangkok to samui and the taxi scams.

 

You can ignore the market and out a fonfer in your ears, but the market won't ignore it.

 

Koh chang and co are getting fuller each year because people go their instead.

 

 

And spare us the we never went their bs and we never met the taxis there, like phuket pretty much every expat visited those islands once and never went again.

Perhaps the Thais could improve their services. Offer a better, safer, more efficient customer-satisfaction based service, and put them out of business that way.

 

Yes, good point,however not sure if such a process would work in this here de-mock-racy.

The complete Tosh they purport to be real on this site is laughable to say the least. The bloke delling out the change does not look too me to be any kind of Tout. All of you supposed intelligent retirees must be hitting the fuddy-duddy part of old age. Given that, not so many stand back and think what a load of tripe.

Ok had my moan ........

Is that because they don't steal the job from Thais cleaning up the beach?

Thais not clean up a shit anywhere

perhaps if the thais had better service and didn't use their monopoly to control the prices they could easily out compete the foreigners...\

Perhaps if the foreigners obeyed the law (LIKE IT OR NOT) there would be no problem and it would be what it is supposed to be - a holiday destination and not a haven for scavengers.

Wow, I see what you did there. School must be out already?

 

If you are happy to come across as just another loser who thinks it is okay to subvert the law to make money then you are no better than a common criminal and most likely can't make it in your own country, or are already on the run.

 

You certainly appear to be a narcissist with a swollen ego, and as such hardly worth wasting my time writing this...

 

Add to ignore list is the better option.

That's because Thai folks don't consider beach cleaning a job. 

Take that any way you'd like to.

No one scammed, beaten, raped or murdered in the back of that truck. Missed opportunity?

 

Sorry, couldn't help myself with unrelenting news from neighboring islands and Samui legend for scams and overpricing.

 

I've only been to Samui twice, overnight. One in transit, the other 25 years ago. Far better options in the Andaman if you can forgo the need for luxury and western food.
