Buriram nurse scammed out of THB400,000 by American Facebook boyfriend

Recommended Posts

"...the boyfriend, whom she has never met..."

"...a typical 'handsome-man"

"The nurse said she had to remortgage her mothers farm to get enough money to make the transfers, and now the family is left with nothing"

Gambled.

And lost.

Nothing new... wai2.gifwai.gif

So that makes it OK then....

Some of the apologists for this thief make me sick. It is no wonder we old sexpats don't want to encourage digital pikeys to Thailand...

Can't people get proper jobs anymore they have to resort to such low scams on the naive?

I bet he will be here soon bragging about his pikey 'earnings' and his inability to get a table at a food court soon....

We old sexpats???

I guess that explains a lot, lol

Theparak ended up making seven transfers, spending a total of THB400,000, to a Kasikorn bank account under the name Karnchana Maklang, a typical Thai woman's name.

It seems like she got scammed by a Thai lady in USA

I'm waiting for "The shoe's on the other foot now" comments!!! whistling.gif

.

Yea, and they would be highly inappropriate and indicative of cold hearts and immature mentalities.

I feel sad for the woman. 400k is an awful lot of cash for a Thai nurse to lose. Hope the guy gets in a head-on with a telephone pole on the way to the bank.

Does Facebook not cooperate in fraud investigations? Anybody have advice how she could pursue such a process?

I feel really sorry for these women that fall victims to unscrupulous scammers.

The dream of getting a farang husband and having a better life is still at large in Thailand.

Hope that these scams get better coverage on Thai media to warn future victims.

Till then.....we will be hearing again and again of similar cases.

Why feel sorry for stupid?

First she was stupid to call someone she does not even know a boyfriend

Second she was stupid to believe someone she does not know to be a boyfriend

Third she was stupid to think someone would give her 1.1 million dollars

Lastly she was stupid to think someone who gave her 1.1 million dollars would not pay $10000 postage .

She then was even more stupid to think postage can cost $10000.

Did she think her bf was sending her a house?

Very gullible...probably, naive - almost certainly.

But stupid, well that just sounds nasty.

There is a huge difference between naive and stupid.

Only stupid would think someone who they never met or known would give them over 1 million dollars = over 30 million baht

And I guess you think she deserves it too.

Anyone know how a nurse in Buriram gets 400,000 baht in the 1st place??

h

Saves 5000 THB per month for six or seven years ?

We used to call this "her life's savings".

Very very sad.

Do they feel sorry for those they scam?

Do they feel sorry for the elderly foreigners they strip of everything and then find another victim?

As Buddhists well know, 'you get what you give'. Maybe not this individual, but this is typical of the race.
