Is this a joke? Who would lend a Thai gf that amount?

Paul did.

these people really need to start thinking with their big head not their little one, she was probably a lot younger than him so his ego would have been in overdrive as well. Remaining in the UK  while lending money to her and probably her real boyfriend was pretty stupid especially that much, looks like he can say good bye to it all now, maybe next time use rational thinking before letting your d*ck tell you what to do

Don't be sad, This happens to a lot of Falangs.

Just put it down to Education, and learn from the lessons.

You're quite right, it does happen to a lot of farangs.

But it has nothing to do with education and everything to do with common sense.

When being a 'wise-a$s' its best not to try to use big words...   I think you meant 'legal recourse'.

I know a guy who was in the loan shark business in Thailand.

And he explained to me once the basics how he made sure he gets his money back.

Without going into details: If you want to succeed in that business make sure you have a nasty character and you are willing to act like a badass criminal to get it back.

Otherwise don't do it.

He is asking for advice, not comments on the fact that he used bad judgement in making the loan -- which I think we can safely assume he now knows.

 

OP all you can do is ask your lawyer to escalate the matter and seek a court order to seize  GF's assets.

 

As it sounds like your lawyer usn't being much help maybe others could recommend a different lawyer.

you really need to be in thailand to know what's really going on.

Dunno about that, there are many who are here that have and will be still fall for scams of every type.

Unfortunately this could cost the OP a lot of money and perhaps his comfort in retirement, there is little chance of him being able to recover the full amount, the old saying 'you cannot get blood out of a stone' is what matters here, if his (hopefully now ex.) GF has no cash or assets in her name.
