EXCLUSIVE: Farang checkout thief who stole 2,000 baht from Thai shopper returns the money - He's British

Recommended Posts

I am being dead, 100% serious when I say making a mistake and fully facing up to it may be more admirable than never making the mistake (which we all make).

So British crooks . I always said
He want to pay his insurance

Was a wrong thing to do even if he didn't know it clearly belonged to the woman right next to him. I saw a dirty 200,000 dong bill on the side of the road yesterday and just kept walking. Very poor form to pick up money that is no yours and is dangerous and stupid thing to do in a foreign country. 

This is debatable. 

I found a note in Ha Noi and handed it over to someone rummaging through the bins.

On the one hand, leaving it there leaves open the possibility of the person who dropped it retracing his/her steps and finding it. On the other, since there is likely only a small possibility of that happening, the next best thing is that it is passed on to the needy.

 

So I don't agree with your "dangerous and stupid" and "poor form" hyperbole. I'd even go so far as to state that it is just nonsense.

 

But we can have differing opinions.

Actually I want to ask a serious question, how do we know he is British ? We only have the lady,s word to go on, he may have spoken English but could be from a multitude of different countries, the police were not involved so no sighting of his passport or drivers licence, I mean he could easily come from the USA, NZ, SA, AUS or God forbid even the Isle of Wight...

...or from Italy or France with a perfect British accent…… NOT 🤣

The Thai girl came out of this very well I thought, very compassionate.

 

 

Not very, more like extra compassionate for not demanding a wai.  I nearly got it right on Tuesday:

 

"I suspect she will settle for the money being returned and a reasonably convincing wai, which the police may go along with.

 

An excellent opportunity for a publicised display of her "compassion and forgiveness" and, of course, some first class "merit" to be earned for it."

 

First class merit......with honours!

At least he is not Norwegian, as someone claimed in the other thread, we are richer than you guys and he doesn't look like a viking.

Reserving judgment until after I hear his views on Brexit.

I am glad he had the decency to return the money, but feel he only did so from the shame produced by social media. Had it not been so well publicised, I suspect he would not have done so. We all make mistakes. The woman is satisfied, the cops seem to be letting it go. All that remains is for the TV punters to shred him a little more I guess.

I have nothing but praise for the Thai lady who has been very fair minded about the whole thing and more than gracious. I wish there were more like her. Her boyfriend seems to have picked a good one.

Don't  worry someone  will be along with a  private prosecution shortly.😁
