I got footage of hotel staff stealing my money

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

After having read many helpful answers on this forum, I was thinking of this forum to be the perfect place to ask this question.

 

I recently noticed money disappearing from my wallet in my room. So I set up my action cam in the room and decided to capture anything and anybody that came in my room unnoticed. While entering my room I noticed something was off. So, I checked the trap it has sprung! The person is caught in the act and is visible. 

 

Now the next question is: what should I do now? 

 

Confront them with the footage and ask the money back or go straight to the police.

 

Thanks!

Leave it as cultural education.

 

 

You were being Western. Openly leaving money in a hotel room.

 

They were being Thai.

 

 

Your next lesson will be taxi drivers, and food stall double pricing. 

 

Enjoy!

All posts are excellent suggestions...especially getting the hell outta there FAST.  No telling what danger you will be in.  This is Thailand, you apply western logic with confrontation, the money you lost will be the value of your life taken away...Be careful.  Many great suggestions though... Good luck whatever you do.

The first thing you should do is post the video here.

 

Yeah, and mention the name of the hotel.   That way, they have the OP on defamation and computer crimes.

You were stupid enough in first place to stay in a hotel room that had no safe to put all your valuables in, you got robbed. What did you think might happen?? Sorry, silly me I thought you had a brain.

Work out how much has been taken. 

 

Take the Video to the Manager of the hotel. Tell them you want your money back and that the Police are called and the thief is charged. If the management at the hotel are reasonable, they should take responsibility. 

 

If the Management at the hotel do not act responsibly, go to the Police and report the crime.
