Thai Gangsters Demand Protection Money From Bar Owner

Recommended Posts

Isn't prostitution illegal in Thailand? Aren't most bars offering girls for hire?

I find it strange how foreigners can come to a foreign country such as Thailand, become involved in the prostitution industry and then complain when other illegal entities want in on the action.

Leave these businesses to the Thais, or just deal with the extra payments.

If your friend has shelled out 35 million baht on this place, he obviously isnt hard up for cash...

Tell your pal to grow some balls....it may sound harsh, but thats the way it works.If a man cannot survive here what is the world coming to??? if you read this site...you hear all the same stories. its time to move form junior school to senior....

If people can not handle it here then stay away...easy STOP fe#$ing moneing.

It's how you play the game,some people survive and some go under.

I simply cannot believe how neieve some people can be to post where they ask a bar owner if he pays off anyone and he says no never has.Of course he will say that most people willnot admit to being corrupt unless they are perverse and see it as a something to be proud of. Also any bar owner at present will deny it also it is in their best interests not to let anyone know. They look at it like it is no one elses business. Even in foreign countries asians pay for protection in their communities or have problems.

With no insult or judgement intented I am amazed how many of you here survived as long as you have really.

Surely the corrupt party is the collector and not the payer?

Depends on how the bar operates and what goes on inside and for how long

Money can always bend the rules - you just need to know who and how much

If the bar plays by the rules then VERY little monies need to be paid UTM

Prostitution is illegal in LOS,so most expat bar owners are breaking the law officialy.I would imagine that getting protection from the cops is a good way of not going to jail,and to protect your illegal operation.

A friend of mine owns a bar in Patters,asked her once if she pays anybody,she laughed and said to let them try and get a penny ,she has never been asked in 10 years.

She will be a thai then ?

Have been in the "entertainment" business for the last 15 years, either directly or indirectly, and out of my own experience I'd say that what you have seen is rather exceptional!

Haven't had anything like that ever happen to me, nor to my rather extensive amount of friends/acquaintances who are in the same business...

That is exactly my experience.

Well it says 62 have veiwed this, no comments ?....am i to assume its not worthy and is normal practice for thailand,...... :)

Dont know about the "normal" Thai guy threatening extorsion with death threats, I am sure the police will wish to know that someone is moving in on their actvities......er I mean someone is threatening a business owner with extorsion smile.gif.

My advice is dont pay any tea money except to the genuine Pattaya Police.

The going rate for example down Pattaya New Plaza (opposite Soi 8, Second road end) is 2,000 Baht per unit per month and look how many units are on that Soi.

Gangsters/mafia my arse!

The majority of them that come into a bar in Pattaya and demand anything whether it is politely or not politely are the soi rat informants to soi 9, the police informants, scum bags not mafia.
