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

Recommended Posts

"The female Thai shopper who dropped 2,000 baht at a supermarket in Pattaya only to see an old westerner on CCTV pick it up and pocket it has told Thaivisa that she has got her money back."

 

As proud BrIt I am ashamed that the man was forced via social media to return the money.

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.

..well, the police have no case to investigate now, as he has three days in which to either hand in the money to police or return it to the owner, which it appears he has done..filed 'no action'.

 How do you know she has a farang BF and that has nothing to do with the old "Brit" in this case. Her personal life has nothing to do with the thieving Brit who stole from her. Question? 🙂

 

..he didn't steal from her, he stole by 'finding' the money.

You cannot find money if it is not lost, he knew where the money came from, I suppose it became lost to her when he put his foot on it.

The headline implies all Brits are thieves. Anyone want to sue for deformation? I in no way condone the mans actions, and I hope he has been shamed, it appears so.

If the lady dropped the money and left and the Farang came along several minutes later, presumably we would not consider that stealing, just his good fortune. I agree his action was despicable, but just interested where readers consider the line is between stealing and finding!

I believe that it yet to be proven he is a Brit, just because he speaks english, doesn't make him a Brit. And I also believe no Brit would do such a thing.

He didn't come along several minutes later, he was already there and witnessed the lady dropping her money.
