Tell them the cash is in your hotel room at any 5 star hotel. Once safely inside, the hotel will help. Happened to a thwarted jet ski scam attempt in Pattaya.

How and why hotel will help?

If you are not a local, agreed this is a good idea. Could always pay for a room instead of paying the local mafia in a worst case scenario. Would work at any decent 3+ star hotel where foreigners stayed.

Mafia is usually very forgiving, they just pack up and leave.

In case you were not sure it was sarcasm

How would they help? I suspect the hotel management would take a dim view of a foreigner getting beaten up on their premises.

If you not a hotel guest, why would management take any view? You see many people running over to help when people get belted?

I for one would help. Extortion is a bullsh*t racket, and anybody who tries it, especially with a fellow ex-pat would get the living crap beat out of them. I would have dared the tuk tuk driver to have tried that with me. I'd beat his as* in front of the BIB.

Its true. I had to use this strategy last year in Yangon. I was being blackmailed by a former Burmese business partner and he showed up with 10 mafia types and 4 policeman! And I was already in the lobby of a 5 star hotel, as I had a group of businessmen in a conference room upstairs and I was getting ready to give a presentation. I was not staying at the hotel and the staff did not know me. They simply swarmed around me when these thugs showed up. They politely isolated the cops and robbers and their security walked them to the front door. I went upstairs, no questions asked. No large hotel wants blood on its floors under any circumstances. In this case the hotel was safer than the police station!

cheesy.gif Yeah, hotel security told police to go away clap2.gif

Whats next? pigs can flyrolleyes.gif

I've done this many times. From Rio to Zanzibar to Vietnam, etc. Works very well. Especially if you are their guest or about to be.

They know the scams and will help their customers.

You have had to do it "many times" in many different places? You must have mark written all over you.

Yes i am sure you would, just for some reason when foreigners get belted on daily basis, no one seems to jump in, but stand around and watch:whistling:

worked for a friend of mine in a similar situation, he walked in the hotel and the security did,nt allow the thai guys in...friend also was,nt a guest so he walked through and out the door on the next soi.

I find it very hard to believe that security did not allow Thai guys to enter hotel.

I also do not know too many hotels with walk through and exists on both sides, kind of compromises the security just a little bit

windsor hotel...often they refuse entry to thai females ...hookers or not, i dont imagine they would allow 2 thai guys covered in tattoos and 2 kg of amulets hanging around the neck.

And then when a victim goes to complain the Thai Police ask local jurnos to take images of you passport and publish them all over the internet.

Disgusting pricks.

Some years ago I took a taxi, shared with a woman who arrived on the same flight, from Da Nang to Hoi An in Viuetnam I negotiated a fee to drop her at her hotel and me at my hotel, and he drove to hers first. She gave me her share, and I thought I'd be paying when he dropped me at my hotel, but he demanded a LOT more then and there, and told me to walk to my hotel. I refused, so he reached into his cab and spun around with a taser trying to zap me. I grabbed my dufffel bag and pinned him against the side of his cab, and within 10 seconds, on the command of somebody in reception who saw the incident, the huge iron gates were swung closed, and security descended on him.

He was left in no confusion about his position if he persisted, so they gave me a head start of several minutes before they would let him out. He was paid nothing for the trip, and copped a belting with my duffel bag for his trouble, so hotel staff, in my experience, will assist, and I wasn't a guest at their hotel. Of course that wasn't Thailand, but............

So all thugs have tats and Buddha amulets? is that the door policy?

They refuse entry to Thai females? is that also a policy what you you think?

Its is WIndsor in Soi 4 right? hotel in brothel central of Bkk?

soi 20

I used to go there often for meetings (ngo work shops)

It has nothing to do with my thoughts.....female ngo,s were often questioned at the door when trying to enter and not allowed until their reasons for being there were cleared.

Well, most people can recognize scum and hookers from a mile away, especially when you work in a hotel in Thailand. Its not just tats, but also the way they dress, act, and look.

Imagine some foreigner walking in at your hi-so hotel late at night, sweating like a pig with scare in his eyes, and two pieces of obvious shit walking next to him or just behind him keeping a close eye on him. Do you think they are going to give him a thanks for the investment advice, or do you think they are following him for another reason?

Buy a drink and pay for it and then buy the next one and so on. Don't wait till the end of the night because that's when you will get scammed.coffee1.gif
