More than 100 foreigners ripped off for 5 million baht+ in education visa scam


Recommended Posts

Anyone notice a little discrepancy with the maths in the OP?

 

100 people paid a 20,000 deposit but were ripped off for 5 million?

 

Am I missing something or is Thai maths different to Western maths?

สมน้ำหน้า These foreigners wanted to scam the Thai visa rules. Now they got scammed themselves...

Yet another scam ripping off foreigners, which the cops are "investigating." If the shoe had been on the other foot and a foreigner had ripped off that many Thais, one suspects said farang would have

Didn't any of these 'teachers' consider why they would need 100 teachers on Koh Phangan?

Who said all 100 would be staying on Koh Phangnan after the visa's were changed?

They had been asked for 40,000 baht for courses at the school on the understanding that the school would process visas for them changing a Non-B into an ED-Visa.

 

what kind of non-B visa is for tourism?  must be a typo.

 

shirley these were all legitimate businesspersons, so why aren't their companies/sponsors that provide them with their work permits simply assisting them with extending their business visas?

They'll have to sell a lot of stuff to get their money back.

 

   Hippies on Ko Phanghan got ripped off and can't buy new stash now. 

 

Time for a GoFundMe campaign. I bet some will find a way doing so.

These people obviously NEED an education visa, as they were so stupid to be scammed out of so much money. 
If your entitled to a visa then do it yourself.

Wouldn’t have happened if they had been better educated instead of hanging out on the beach thinking they were Leo dicaprio while living off mummy and daddy or on their gap years ! 😄

surprised nobody commented on the guy in the picture.  that shirt, hair, etc.....isn't exactly conforming to Thai culture!!!!  can't wear that stuff to a temple..

 

but you can to the bong show!!!!!  lol.  

 

he needs a Meditation certification for 100,000,000 baht and it will get him a visa for 87 days and 11 bowls of soup.   

 

OMG my heart is broken.  The "Thai dream" shattered.  I'll start a gofundme page for me and use the money to buy vegan steak.  

 

I was scammed once for about 10 baht.......jai yen yen.  it's ok.  it's ok.  let's not worry, be happy, and remember to help the poor!!!!

The article states more than 100 people, apparently 250 people. 🙄
