Pattaya: ‘Motorcycle taxi guy' grabs all farang's donation money and flees

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The video commentary says the ' falang ' was giving people 1000 baht when the thief made of with all the money.....10,000 ???

 

So....10 people get a thousand each ??

 

The ' facts ' don't fit the picture.

If the money is not returned stop give out donatons.  This is a type case of some greddy  lowlife Thai doing what they do best.

It's a no-brainer in Thailand. Tell all the 'recipients' that the money is lost and that donations can only continue if the money is recovered. - They will find the perpetrator! Let them deal with him.

Cue the 'Taxi Story', of a driver who finds and returns millions of baht to the tourist who left the money in a taxi.....

Smiles and laughs all round, the worlds wrongs have been righted, equilibrium returned !!!

partially right. due to the current situation the found value will only be around 90k. times are tough even for bags of money in taxi leavers.

Never stand near the road holding money or other valuables,

Never stand between a Thai and 1 baht.

Stupid farang. Give food if anything. They'll be straight in the 7/11 for two bottles of Chang with a 100 baht note

(I was taught this in Phnom Penh, when a guy on a m/c tried, and failed, to snatch my phone)

 

but nowhere near as bad as south america, i traveled all over, some countries fine but peru and equador were horrendous for grab and run theft and muggings, everything from sunglasses and shoes stolen from people just walking on the city street to more valuable items grabbed from restaurant/coffee shop tables. never  seen anything like that in asia. thankfully.

Much more desperate in South America or Africa than SE Asia...

 

People in thailand have access to food and shelter...Plus warm/hot weather...
 

All these people in lines are just optimistic in getting a free handout...it’s just human nature...

then there would have been an outside chance of him being caught.

Unless it was an inside job.... :sorry:

Same city; same MO.  Two guys on a bike tried for my Thai wife's necklace.  She was too quick for them.  They did not give up and U-turned onto the opposite side of the road; considering another attempt before deciding we were now en garde and discretion overtook them.
