A 20 year old woman from Sisaket went to Pattaya police to file a complaint claiming she was extorted out of money by several men claiming to be policemen.

 

Reports on what happened on Tuesday night varied from Ruk Siam News and Channel 7 reports. 

 

Ruk Siam reported on Facebook that Anantaya said that she was sleeping alone at a condo when a man who she respected as her elder brother called her and asked for help saying he was facing a drugs' sting. 

 

She said that she let him come to her room in Soi 9, Moo 10 and claimed she did not know what drugs he had with him. 

 

Then four men claiming to be police came and arrested him and said that she was involved and would face arrest too. 

 

She said the men said they would let them both go in exchange for 50,000 baht. 

 

Fearing jail she paid up. 

 

Ruk Siam said that the police took her report at 4 am and went to investigate looking at CCTV. They also reported that one of the men was indeed a Chonburi police officer but gave no further details. 

 

Channel 7 said the incident at the condo happened at 11.30 pm on Tuesday. They said the woman was asked for 50,000 baht but she bargained them down to 20,000 baht. 

 

She was then taken to an entertainment venue where she borrowed the money from someone. 

 

Then she was bundled blindfolded into a pick-up by 4-5 men before being dumped at the end of Soi Wat Tham Pattaya Tai. 

 

After consulting with people about what to do she was advised to report the matter to the police.

1st mistake. Don't harbor criminals.

2nd mistake. Don't respect anyone who is involved with criminal activity.

she bargained them

3rd mistake. Don't fall for "police" scare tactics, let them take you in and process you, chances is you would not even be charged.

the entire force is claiming to be policemen. 

 

it does not make it so.

So being a policemn makes extortion attempts more credible?

whole story smells .... fishy at best

Stories generally do not emit any odors. What they do is report a "story", written by someone who in all likelihood was not at the scene when the incident took place. I read these blurbs and move on, being neither policeman, judge or jury.

Ohhh the shame of it all, damaging the image of the BiB.

What?  No police request for sexual favors from a vulnerable woman...these were likely not Thai police...😊

Well, in one way it is comforting to know things haven't changed all that much in Pattaya.

Full marks to the officer who identified the bent copper. 

Although I fear he may suffer the consequences of his honesty from up the ladder.
