You've got to be kidding me!  I'm surprised Thai counterfeit watch scammers did not run him off.  

 

Why would they?  He was probably a great customer.  He had to get his inventory somewhere...

Ha ha, working with no work permit! So he's taking work from Thai criminals selling fake goods?

Or only a crime if you're not Thai?

Poor ole Mark, his last prospective customer was a short chubby man, who was not happy when Mark refused to lend him a watch, so he grassed poor man up to plod.:cheesy:

He tried to sell me one on Monday, it must have been one of last days in business. He was pretty mellow. No harassing me. Kind of a quiet fellow but the watches didn't look very good.

I don't know why people connect working without a permit to taking a job a Thai could do.  You can be working in a field wide open to foreigners, doing a job you are uniquely qualified in the world to do, and still get banged up if you don't have a WP.  And you can get a WP and be legal to do lots of jobs that Thai people are perfectly qualified to do.

Mark, who has lived in Pattaya for several years and is well known among the expat community, was described by a friend to Thaivisa as a “loveable rogue who just lost his way”

Ran out of funds more like and needed some income!

 When someone buys a Rolex on the street everyone knows that it is fake because it is cheap. While this moron mounts a whole explanation on the internet to make buyers believe that it is a collector who reluctantly gets rid of a real Rolex and that it is a unique case that breaks his heart because he has to need money. So those who more or less defend him by joking that only the Thais have the right did not understand anything, this kind of moron sells its copies ten times more expensive, like 20,000 ฿. He is nothing more than a scammer who steals hard-earned money without the slightest shame from gullible people, so my tolerance for this kind of individual is 0%! I hope he will taste a little time behind bars before being ban for life.

I see your day has got off to a cracking start. Don't go outside you can only get angrier as the days goes on. 

 

Described by a fiend to Thai Visa mate of a 'insider' by any chance ?
