A foreigner is the last person I would do business with in this country as demonstrated time and time again. Why do these shysters believe that they can go to another country and violate its laws unimpeded? I guess ignorant greed is the motivator..

We had a a.hole in Kan who a few years ago now developed an estate, he had his own 'title' of a bl..dy Lord <deleted>!!!. He had the Thais believe it too. He lied over the number of title papers he had. One of my friends lost his house he paid for!! Went to beat the living daylights out of the c.nt. and has ended up with a restriction order on him cannot go near him!!!😡🤬😡🤬😷😷😷😷 (The 'Lord' will never be coming back here)

I may also be incompetence instead of malice.

Locals & foreigners are both good and bad... a broad brush stroke doesn't cut it.. you can name both.

the fact he used nominees to get around Thai land ownership rules is nothing new, that's normal.

But not finishing, building or cheating prospective buyers is a no-no, doesn't matter the nationality !

This crook has been known for a long time, cheating and scamming homebuyers for years. One has to wonder why it took so long to finally get him. But normally this guys are well connected. Wait until you see what happens at the court ...

Seems Brit crooks are as bad as Thai crooks. I am sure I wont get many likes for this one.

 

I wish t here were some tough laws for this to protect buyers. I don't mean it has to applied to foreigners only but to everyone giving better protection to buyers.

 

But I think it would be hard as the people doing such things are usually rich or have al ot of cash from cheating their clients enough to bribe a lot of people. 

 

 

Bit of a racist comment that. A crook is a crook no matter what nationality

Greed and corruption are cousins here and abroad. They depend in each other to facilitate crime.

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.

I'd suggest driving to Hua Hin to speak to the DSI then. I don't think anyone here will have the answer. 

 

Be great to know the results.

To be honest i love to be doing business with a foreigner. I mean like a foreign handyman or something. I find it hard to find Thais to do a really good job. Its not a price thing but just hard to find qualified persons. I am not saying that Thais are not good as they certainly are given that some houses and other buildings look great and are built great. Its just hard to find those kind of people as they have work enough and probably don't have to advertise. 

iv been lucky. ,build.  house. ,Master thai builder. ,lot  wood. ,saw mill made on site. ,outstanding wood work ,tiler team. , husband. wife , very good ,better than europe. , fraction of the cost. ,electrics. ,nice finished.  ,job ,,          gone done on roof tiles fro  chang Mia. ,order terracotta   ,thats not what turned up. ,now replaced. with ceramics   ,fine. ,last longer than me. ,

Is this the same Brit real estate developer developer who made a big deal out of rescuing a 86 yo Brit pensioner who locked up and was living on rice and water in Samit Sakorn, a few months ago? He was held as a hero by some (not me). He did it via a GoFundMe scheme. Looks similar.

It’s interesting to note they are not investigating the fraud and why people paid but did not receive what they paid for , but investigating the legality of the company set up. 
 

so if found guilty , he gets fined, nominee gets fined and customers get what?

You might, I stress might, have got a like if you had said foreign crooks are as bad.

 

Unfortunately "something" got the better of you.

 

Never mind, you got a bunch of likes anyway.......and Buddha loves you.

The fact that a property company has not delivered is nothing new. There are many reasons why this can happen, but it normally boils down to cash flow. Thailand is littered with half finished developments.

 

The difference here is that it is a non Thai citizen who is involved with not delivering to Thai citizens.

 

In this case the odds are stacked against the gentleman in question. No matter how good his intentions, he will always have to deal with issues such as using nominees and tax evasion because these are the usual and expected allegations that surface in cases like these, whether they are true or not.

 

In general, property developers do not set out to deceive. If they can make good income delivering projects then it's much easier to deliver the projects.

 

Time will tell with this. It's going to be an ongoing story as it probably won't get settled quickly.

This was in the post this morning, he didn't register the new buildings with the local government, the new owner could not get water hooked up nor electrical as he had not paid tax nor registered
