Always good and bad everywhere, but when video like this emerges, then the "good" should tell this person to go elsewhere. Videos have depicted all nationalities essentially stealing from another. No ethnicity in particular- simply how you were raised with morals or lack thereof. Those who return lost money are within the group who were raised correctly. As far as the old man in the video, please go back to the UK- your presence in a foreign country is not welcomed. And then "possibly"- before your last days, you can figure out right and wrong. Until then, I will pray that your obvious lack of decency is reconciled before your last breath.

Let the punishment fit the crime, yes, what he did was a despicable act, but I think that all this social media exposure it has attracted is more than enough punishment. I think if he ever sees someone drop any money again he will return it without any hesitation, whilst waving at the cctv.

He was a British man and was a tourist. He had been in Pattaya for the past 2 months. 

Yeah, yeah. We deduced this days ago. All those British folk on here knew it as well. Been an anxious few days I bet.

Conscience giving him a couple of sleepless nights, and decided to do the right thing albeit belatedly.

He might think twice about doing such actions in the future and lucky for him the young lady was gracious and didn't want to pursue with police action.

Honestly, I had read the initial report and 'skipped over" the head line...yes- my bad. All you had to say was that he was British. I "normally" do not miss the particulars, yet somehow was not really concerned about the nationality.And still- the nationality IMO is beside the point- no matter who -your welcome has just run out. CYA:)

Good on the old geezer.

Now we just need to get that "lady" shown in the enclosed clip, who stole money from one of those money-collection trees standing around in 7/11s and elsewhere. The collection has merit-making background and goes to a temple for charity.

Wondering, what that b1tch was thinking; in my opinion considerably more despicable! But judge for yourself.

 

Good on the old geezer? If not for the CCTV he would have got away with the theft. Just wonder how much thieving he had done over his lifetime as he gave no hint of being a newbie in such activities.

 

No excuse, but likely that the lady was a trifle more desperate for cash than the rather well fed Brit.

 

But you seem to have missed this foreign guy who actually took the money from inside the temple. Now, that surely takes the biscuit for being despicable? Of course, that is only my opinion.....

Conscience? I'm sure he was alerted to the video. His "conscience" was lacking when he saw the lady drop money in front of him and said "nothing".  Oh.......on second thought, I should have not deliberately put my foot on the money and attempted to "steal" from a native. Nope- that's not how it works- second chances at integrity are nullified. Next question:)

well at least he turned up met the woman and returned her money

disappointed he did not give her a Wai 

if he had left it any longer  could have been doing a Wai with a lot of people pointing the finger

Ignoring the rights and wrongs, I'm glad that the lady got her money back. Not a small amount even for a farang.

Why does the report have to state the persons nationality so boldly..."He's British"!!!! It seem like the reporter is triumphant about something.? What is the reason...what are they trying to imply? What the hell difference does it make? Every country has an endless mix of people "types" good, bad, and ugly, so what relevance is it?

I was born and bred british, but not lived there for nearly 50 years, I never ever say I am british, because I am very ashamed at their attitude and even the pensioners as in this case I understand, their total lack of respect

while in another country. Fine hin 5000 pounds and deport him.

So not all foreigners are thieves? Please, dear British friends, take that message back home.
