If he doesn't come up with the money it'll be jail until he can, plus finally an expensive new flight out to his home country. For him to beg borrow or steal 2-2500 baht will be extremely small potatoes in comparison. 

Surely he must have a family or friends bacck home who could transfer (WU or similar) the small amount of 2500baht to him.

He was really lucky. I think now it is much more likely he would be arrested, and deported when he came up with the money for the court imposed fine and flight to home country. He would also be blacklisted from Thailand for some period of time for being arrested while on overstay.

He was eventually arrested but not at the Airport and got a 10 year ban

Many Credit Card companies will not send replacement cards to Thailand so after a while they might have expired

Who cares what will happen to him. Or if you have his phone number/email address then contact him and ask him the next day what happened to him.

If this story is a scam, don't give the person money. 

If this story is true, don't give this person money. 

It's their fault for failing to have some money on their person - especially if there was a chance of an overstay. 

The person gets what he or she deserves from the Thai Authorities.
