his relatives are concerned for his well being, this is surely not a topic for frivolity.

He's an overstayer.

 

It's not like he's lying in ICU somewhere.

The hairy lasso claims another one.

How can an American teach English. They neither speak nor write English.

Follow the rules and Thailand will love you also!   😊

Hugh.....but Americans seem to understand finance and economics

 

The Brits are perfect for the low -pay english teaching jobs here....

 

Back to my WSJ...

Sure they do, so much so that they used complex derivatives to bankrupt the world in 2007. 

 

Back to my book on Bernie Madoff ...

Chiang Rai immigration moved to arrest him on Sunday after receiving information from Nakhon Ratchasima immigration that emanated from the American Embassy. 

 

The media said that relatives of the man had contacted the authorities after they were concerned for his wellbeing.

I dislike this kind of topic as it brings out the worst in this forum, usually exposing the users as far more heinous. bitter, losers than the subject matter. In this case, certainly seems to be the case. I'm surprised no one has yet called for his instant deportation, after ten years in prison.

 

I actually feel a little sorry for the bloke. He's really at that sort of 'crossroads' age, possibly spent his earlier years scraping around for a niche in life, only to finally find one in Thailand at totally the wrong time. He's young enough to see out his 3 year ban (?) and hopefully use the time to get qualified, to use what he's learned and then come back and be of some benefit.

What an absolute laff. You no doubt empathize because you see yourself in him.

 

Crossroads? Young?! The man could possibly be months away from 40 years old. That's not young that's (middle) middle age.

 

Get qualified at what precisely? Certainly not teaching. He's no moral example. I wouldn't want this guy anywhere around my students let alone my children.

 

I really don't care what happens to him honestly. Yet, no pity or sympathy for people that travel to a foreign country to scrape around. Scrape around in your own country.

 

GF called him in for spite. Long promises of bringing her to US.

 

Lost contact with his family.

 

Just lost. Send the 38 year old back to mommy and daddy and hope he can sort himself out in the next decade or so.
