A Facebook post indicated that a British man was now in the custody of the Lumpini police in Bangkok after being found destitute. 

 

Rumor was rife in comments that this might be a man who came to Thailand with money and who met a Thai woman who relieved him of his money. 

 

Many Thais were speculating and sharing the story after pitiful pictures were posted online. The post had been shared more than 1,200 times.

 

Wanlop Duangcharoen said that he was now with the Lumpini police and that contact had been made with his embassy. 

 

Comments suggested that the man is called Robert Clark Penna and he is from the United Kingdom. 

 

People commenting on the photos on Facebook suggested that the man's family were coming to Thailand to collect him.

Looking at those pics this is about as bad as it gets.

 

I use to wonder how on earth people could get into such a mess but can see now that some bad luck, bad decisions etc, and it can happen.
