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

Recommended Posts

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?

facebook might help if the police went to them.....burned for a few thousand baht transfer fee 7 times? Saw it happen here to a retired Norwegian married to a Thai. He had a real nice pension, really nice, but was a bit greedy for the UK Lottery for which he did NOT buy a ticket, over and over just like this lady. Naive, cannot admit own error.....sad but happens all too often. When the deal is too good to be true, it is NOT true.

Could we stop the BS about the "poor unfortunate woman", please? Greed, superficiality and stupidity lead to loss of money in most such cases as well as in this particular case. Thousands of foreign men, who think they are THE ONE to their beloved "Nok", "Goong", "Plaa", "Pang", whatever, are tricked into losing millions day by day, with those girls each are playing several other "Johns", "Robs", "Petes", "Franks", and "Pauls" at the same time like slot machines... What goes around, comes around!

Like we foreigners are told daily by Thais when it comes to complaining about double standards, overcharging, national park fees, the legal 49% foreign / 51% Thai business scam, being ripped off by Thais daily, etc...: "Stop whining, and go away if you don't like being taken advantage of!"

I believe this applies as well to the nurse from Buriram!

Why pick on old guys,
A very cute 24yo hooker in CR had 3 or 4 young backpacker type Euro guys sending her 20k a month each.
She laughed so hard at her story, she fell off the bed.

Indeed, there are suckers of all ages. Though a backpacker of a similar age who thought he had a holiday romance might have a little more justification in thinking that there is some sort of genuine relationship. Why they carried on sending her significant amounts of money when they had (presumably?) moved on is beyond me.

And I thought Thai people said Farang were dull when it came to parting with their money, oh well she has always got a nice photo of some one for memories

The heading is misleading and should read ,

' Buriram nurse scammed out of THB400,000 by Thai woman posing as American Facebook boyfriend '

This is more accurate according to the story published.

I think you're wrong. The scammer would have used another person's bank account to receive the funds. They never ever use their own names to avoid linking the crime back to them.

She was scammed by another Thai that makes my day, even the facebook replies if you are educated enough can see that it is written by someone who's English is not that good, No I don't feel no sorrow at all, just makes good reading

Asian women have been scamming for years........sad thing is 100 's of Westerners have had this happen ....do we ever hear of them....not often because most are too ashamed to report. I attribute it to stupidity to be so nieve as to trust someone sight unseen as was the case with the Lady.

While I truly feel sorry for this woman, i do wish the local media would give the same sort of attention to all the foreigners who are scammed by local women. Sadly, it's no surprise at all that they don't however. sad.png

Because if you come from the West one hopes that you are a bit more worldly wise and have had an education.

If you are so stupid and get scammed by a local woman- that is your fault- Swampy has a vast warehouse of brains that were deposited on arrival.

I also feel sorry for this woman, it seems surprisingly common that people are sucked into these scams.

Hate to say it does sound a bit like a boiler room scam very popular in a certain country

Yeah, perhaps there's an element of greed here since the cover story she was given was that she had to pay shipping/handling charges for a $1million+ gift.

But then, how do you react to all those male pensioners here that get scammed by pretty-young-things? They're fleeced, not because of monetary greed, but because of 'sexual greed' (aka lust), yet we typically express sympathy for them and disparage the woman. Hmmm...

As someone with a soon to be ex-thai wife who quite litterally gave away over 1million baht, due to being a moron, I have no sympathy what so ever. It makes me feel a bit better that this woman appears to be dumber than my wife, although she didn't lose quite so much.

Bit of an unfortunate picture. Looks like even though she has been plugged in (i can see the cable coming from her neck) her system hasn't quite booted up yet leaving her head back in a slightly vacant gape mode.

Just calls em as I sees em.
