Phuket Foreigners Losing Homes To Con Men

Recommended Posts

Step one, try the gambling scam on hubby, but if this does not work, then go to step 2.

Step 2, contact the contractors.

I guess it depends on where in Thailand you get your wives from. The bars are not usually the best place.

I'd say from a bar worsens your chances however there is a multitude of women, many with bachelor degrees, some even masters that may be in the same/similar game. If the foreign man speaks some Thai language, typically these women are not interested. Why not? IMO, knowledge lowers their chances of getting something from you. Tons of them online at dating sites including thaifriendly dot com

That is just reality

Similar thing happened to me in Manila about 15 years ago lost $4000.

Just about everybody knows that you don't get involved in dodgy gambling in the Philippines, Thailand or wherever - the outcome is the same.

How frickin stupid can some people be!!

As stupid as you or I on GBH.

GBH is colourless and tasteless and was clearly in the glass of water.

It gives the victim total trust.

It is often used in date rape.

A friend of mine went shopping in Panthip plaza

and emerged with his new ipod and laptop and other goodies

in a large shopping bag.

He was targeted by a tuk tuk driver who took him to his house.

There he was also given a glass of water and did not remember much more

except that he gambled and lost everything.

He was not a gambling man.

For what possible reason did he go to the tuk tuk driver's house! These people are obviously a danger to themselves and should return to their home countries asap.

....and then 450 days later after the divorce, she picks up her share of the house money!

...Would any of you be surprised if this was the case?

...no! TIT 55555

My thoughts exactly - and less risky than paying someone to throw him off a balcony after he had been drinking.

I believe this tactic is known as the "fan tan" but I am not really sure;

I was once put into the same position but I was not fleeced becos I was not greedy lol

Yes you were smart and not greedy.

Of course these people are easy to take, they a greedy and stupid. No wonder few go to the police with such a story of how utterly stupid they were.

I read through this "story" and find it runs very similar to the scam emails one gets. Even to the extent of the bad English used in the "story".

I just find that the whole story sucks and is at all not true. You have the 'rich Chinese man" the Manager, the driver, and the gambling expert.. Purely fiction from a D class novel!

What dam_n rubbish!

I agree. The whole thing is a perpetuation of the con. The wife was in on it and the story was invented to rationalize to the husband how she sold the house to pay them.
