Origins of the crooks are irrelevant, what is relevant is lack of laws and regulations allowing crooks to come up with scams

 

The origins of the crook is relevant on this forum. In my experience people on this forum seem to react far stronger to crimes committed by Thais or non white foreigners then to for instance Brits. Just as you see in the post on this topic. Not that many post. I bet if it had been a Thai there would be far more post.

 

I don't really care about where someone comes from for me action is what matters not origins. The reason i bring it up is explained in the previous paragraph.

 

But your right it should not matter.

I think I know what his intentions were, with 5 projects and not delivering

on any of them......

regards Worgeordie

If that was his intention -- when the cards started collapsing -- he would have disappeared with very little to track him down.  5 projects semi-concurrent with cash flow bringing down all in the case of being over leveraged - is easy when the economy takes a big hit due to lower cash flow and lower turn-over. 

 

He will however be in deep problems if he cannot raise the case to settle with those that are owed and the police to make the case disappear...

I would like to know what went wrong and why the development of peoples houses did not follow to the end. As him having nominees I see no real big deal in that.

Using a Thai nominee to own land in order to circumvent the fact that you as a foreigner cannot own land in Thailand, is illegal. So I guess there’s that.

That is what you think, he could have thought he could stay here bribing a few people. Your assuming he expected getting caught.

There are loop holes around that. If this is the real case then there are going to be a lot of a lot of Chinese in hot water losing their investments here..

Hua Hin is awash with these crooks from the UK buying property. Hopefully it will be like a house of cards and will all come tumbling down.

Many foreigners are using nominees for the property ownership and transactions but but it's a long way between that and swindling abd cheating buyers, as far as this guy concern he's done and his goose is cooked in this country...

Any of us who have "owned" property in Thailand know that you have to use a Thai Nominee as foreigners are not allowed to own land.  It is usually the wife or a good solicitor.  It's been the same for many years and accepted as the normal procedure. I built a few properties and sold them over the years, usually to foreigners.  As long as you tick the boxes and do the paperwork properly there is no problem.  Beware the corrupt officials who try to extort money out of you in trumped up "fees".

 

However there will always be the crooks and charlatans, Thailand attracts it's fair share of them as there  are plenty of scamming opportunities and plenty of naïve dummies to take advantage of.
