What the New Yorker got out of jail and moved to Thailand, talk about a scam and the people were smarter than Thais if you believe everything here.

Some of them got a 30% return. They made the smart move of cashing out early.

Since most Thai wifes of foreigners get their money from them, isn't the falang the real victim?

 

Maybe it was really to scam the husbands?

Does it never sink in to these people, that if someone is offering 30% returns then there is something a bit screwy about it when the bank offers less than 2% ? 

This popped up on local Facebook pages.  The commenting posts were very obvious in their condemnation and I - for one - personally reported it to FB moderators (the result? - nothing - - )

 

How can ANYBODY think that a 30% return on an investment is real?  This "Bew" person must have been a smooth talker! - And, even if they do catch up with her there will be no money to be recovered - - -
