PHUKET:-- A hapless Canadian tourist yesterday filed a complaint against a Thai woman, claiming that she made off with about 130,000 baht in cash from his hotel room. 

Alexander Ryan, 31, told police that he had met the woman on Bangla Road in Patong on Tuesday night, and then invited her back to his room at the Holiday Inn hotel where they both continued to drink. 

“Mr Ryan said that he woke up the next morning to find that the woman was gone and so was his money – which included 85,500 baht, CAD$1,000 and US$350,” Maj Teerasak Boonsang of the Patong Police told the Phuket Gazette today.

IDIOT! Still wondering if he's even telling the truth about the amount that was "stolen". Now I'm not siding with any corruption that goes on in Thailand (yes there ARE a bunch of corruption in Thailand), however, there is this thing called the 'INTERNET' where you research the "do's & don't" of country/countries traveling, especially for novice travelers...he just set his ownself up by inviting trouble! Accept the loss pal, and move on, (expensive) lesson learned!!! 55555

Holiday Inn probably will have the punters friend's id right? Don't most decent hotels ask for id when a punter has a new friend?

'hapless' is an excellent description ... deserves the loss. 

 

Hopeless would have been just as good as a description.

Last time I stayed, a guard was stationed at the lift to prevent overnight guests.
