Sadly I've seen this guy a few times on Walking Street at night!

 

So he's probably seen you on Walking Street at night a few times too!

Rule of thumb.

 

If it illegal in your country very good chance it is illegal in Thailand.

 

If it is immoral or unethical then it may be illegal in Thailand.

 

If you see Thai's doing something does not mean it is legal in Thailand.

To Thais, his actions impact all of us.  Sad things are this desperate for him...

Unfortunately, you are right. members of a minority (and we Farangs are a minority, guests in Thailand) should be on their best behaviour, as a misdeed by one impacts us all!

I did, frame by frame. Also blows away your assertion that it happened around the ten second mark.

I've circled the moment when it dropped from between her arms....at fifteen seconds.

 

Are you an acquaintance of his....or the man himself?

 

 

I am sure the guy is a film star. He had a leading part in "Those Magnificent Men". He did everything by the book of instructions.

799,000 to go

 

.... no way it was 2,000 as it was a single bill flying, she is trying to make 100% profit

The person who stole the money will reveal how much it was.

In England it is classed as theft.Stealing by find.

It could have been either 20 or 5000. She says what she wants.

Let's try to put this in another perspective. here we have an old farang. Obviously- he failed to learn that thieving was wrong. I could expand and say that he is what we call in the US "white trash". It is how you are brought up. "if" your tree- your parents acted this way, then no surprise. I could offer comments based upon the video- like many have done so. All I need to see is the culprit at hand...to see his obvious "grifting' tactics (and hey old man...you'll be dead soon- you've learned nothing before you bite the dust). Sad that this older person has not learned decency by now. And so.......if this person depicted in the video chimes in- for whatever  reason, please know that I feel sorry for you. And sadly, many people just do not get it. they have no clue how their selfish actions affect others. In this case, you "stole" from another.

 

 

I assure you that I will NEVER in my latter years nor will I ever do so.....resort to the theft (yes- theft) that this over-the -hill farang (please let me know which country he is from). He is on his way out anyway...perhaps God will make sure that is hastened. There is no excuse for this affront to ANYONE...if I could be there physically and speak to this "marginal" person, then most likely I would advise to go home- wherever that may be. You are NOT welcome anywhere based upon the video. Anyone who knows of the ethnicity of this scum bag, please let me know. He will be forever highlighted, black-listed, and hopefully self-assessed. Either stay or get the <deleted> out of there. And if you stay and you ever "think" about doing a similar thing, then you will be cast away in one form or another. Not a big deal...people like you need to be called out AND driven away.

Technically, this is not stealing.  He did not reach in her pcokets or her purse. The note fell off of her and dropped on the floor.  At that point, it's like picking up a lost item.

Was he dishonest, sure. Was he stealing, nope!  Good luck trying to convict him Thai system.  

Not a very good perspective. Steal-take (another person's property) without permission or legal right and without intending to return it.

It fits for me. The note remained her property,

It's been mentioned in several other posts, 

Finders is NOT keepers in Thailand. 

(Well not for farangs anyway)

It's called stealing. 

And many Thai places delight in calling the police and prosecution. 

 

Think about this... A true story. 

 

A friend of mine was in big C, shopped and paid, went back in to get other stuff.

Security hauled him on the way out. 

They called the police. 

HE could not find the receipt. 

All the stuff in big C bags..

He was not of good health, frail, and he finished up in the monkey house, 2 nights.  Pending a court case.

Even that is corrupt and he said that people were smoking ice pipes, even having sex with inmates. 

75 people in the nights he was there. 

Many overstays doing one night for each 500 baht of overstay cost.

 

Big C pushed it. They always do I am told,

He offered to pay for the stuff again. 

Even though he already had. 

His Thai wife was not with him.

 

Court case, 10 times the value compensation. 

Plus he was fined 10,000 baht. 

A two months prison spell suspended for 2 years.

 

The police approached him to assist. 

They have their own way to deal with these issues. 

Work in teams,

Passport was not taken. 

Immigration were not informed. 

HE was told to cooperate...

His Thai wife was allowed to visit, even in the court.

They even gave her 1000 baht back for translation services. 

50,000 baht cash.  It cost him.

 

After the event the police even drove him home.

But two days and nights in chains and the Pattaya monkey house and court transportation in chains, were too much, 

He has left Thailand...

 

Sadly it's a corrupt system and a way of life for many.

 

If Thai find money,  lucky for them. Like win lottery.

If farangs find, it's not farangs money,  so stealing. 

Trouble...

 

 last time I checked Big C has cameras all over the place that would of proved theft or not..
