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


Recommended Posts

Disclaimer to any kindly souls defending the lass - I'm just poking a bit of fun at her picture. It's humour, don't take it too seriously. I myself am painfully unphotogenic, always get red eye in pictures and look like I'm high or drunk. My avatar is a good example of that.

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

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 ge

The incentive could have been to get the $1.1 million gift he (she, impersonating a he) promised to send her if she could pay the delivery charge of THB 400,000. She sent the 400k to a Kasikorn

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!

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...

True but at least pensioners get some sex and clean house in return, in this case she did not even have enough brain to request Skype or any other video chat

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

What an insensitive, ignorant and arrogant anti-Thai comment, so typical of some expats here...

Why would a Thai nurse not have 400 000 bahts through inheritance, savings (she's 39 years old), whatever ?

So many white expats here think that bar girls (or boys) represent the whole of Thailand, it's disheartening. And hardly surprising that more and more Thais now also assume that all white people are like those expats. Racism is getting worse on both sides due to this kind of attitude based on nothing but judgmental clichés.

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?

Might be a case of her giving out her money wilfully.

Same as when I 'wilfully' (police words) gave 100,000 bahts in 4 months to a cheating girlfriend.

In this instance, this nurse surely transferred wilfully 400,000 bahts (a lot) to an american guy, with black skin, located somewhere in Nigeria.....

Will hurt her more than it hurt me then...

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?

What a rather lame list of excuses...you sir, are a vile apologist....

He might be but I totally agree with him.

Well, how about that...

Finally I have found someone who has never done anything stupid in his entire life...

You deserve a trophy..that comes with a 400,000 bahts prize as well...

On the opposite side of every con is an equally greedy mark. I'm just blown away that this massively obvious scam works like silk on glass, over and over and over and over -- It's just like the EveryReady Bunnie with nuclear batteries. coffee1.gif There must be a sh*tload of really well off scam artists across the world -- and regardless of what this says, the chances of Prince (just got 400K richer) Charming is an American is about zero.

I learned this from my Grandad at a very young age: "There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch." If it looks too good to be true, it isn't. Run!

Well

She is on Facebook dating a foreigner and accepting 30 million baht gifts, I would say not too far from a bar girl

Not exactly a rocket science to assume she is not far from a hooker.
