For 9 years here, it was only once, when the landlord tried to keep the deposit (75k), fixed by one call to my friend in the police. Got my money 15 minutes after.    You should go to police

If you gave her a 130,000 baht deposit........than means you either paying 130k baht a month or 65k/month...........Jesus!!! Why so much? Where are you staying, the royal palace?   For Thail

People have reported on here that there are legal avenues one can take to get the deposit back.

Not sure what they are, but with that amount maybe worth a visit to an attorney to get proper advice.

 

Alas the court may rule completely for repayment but they do not enforce 😞

Get the Ombudsman involved.

That usually gets results.

My ex gf was in a cheap apartment and moved out. Owner refused to give deposit back and was only 3000. I have a feeling they needed to regas aircon after she left.

She simply says that she doesn't have the money.

Many landlords spend the dough the second it hits their account. Little rich girl may have a gambling habit 

Sounds like you paid 2 months deposit something nobody should ever do regardless how badly you want it

That is an astonishingly high deposit. Wow. Have your attorney draft a letter, threatening to sue her. A good place to start. Ask her earnestly, if she has anything of value, to give you in lieu of the debt. Gold, a used car, etc. If not, stay on her like white on rice. In the past I have had people who owed me money. Nearly always, I was able to collect. Rarely did I ever go to court. I kept up relentless pressure on them. I used social media, I used their relatives, their tenants, whatever angle I could find to increase the pressure, increase the hurt, the shame, the embarrassment, the guilt. It nearly always works. The last thing in the world you should do is take off the pressure. Keep on hammering her, in every way imaginable. She will likely succumb. It is very likely she has the money, or can easily get her hands on the money, to take care of her legal obligation to you, but she likely thinks you do not have much recourse, and you will back down. 

 

The last guy who tried to steal some money from me, when he paid me back in cash, in full, told me that the only reason I got my money back, is that he needed to get his life back. It became a game for me. It looks two full years. But, it was almost fun, by the end. A real challenge.

I would first ask your wifes employer since their the ones that arranged it and they probably know the rich mommy and daddy and if that doesn't work the ombudsman is a very good choice .

Ask her again and record it or ask her to write you a letter so you have proof and then go and press charges!
