If you read through all the different Thailand forums on the internet you have so many foreigners complaining about their bad experiences being ripped off in Thailand.It’s always about Thai people that tell you a lie in order to get some money out of you without providing the promised service, sometimes not giving anything in return at all.There are countless of Farangs who come on a holiday to Thailand and fall in love with a Thai bar girl.When they return to their home country they try to keep the relationship by sending her money as she promises to stop working in the bar and sleeping with other guys.Very famous are the jet sky scams in Pattaya and Phuket where tourists are regularly blamed and held liable for damages they haven’t produced. So it happens that tourists are approached in front of Hua Lamphong railway station in Bangkok by local Thais pretending to be “officials” working for the State Railway of Thailand and helping to book the train ticket.They take the tourists to a local travel agent and pretend to call the ticket office then saying the train is fully booked and offering you an overpriced bus ticket instead on which they make some good commission.So you don’t get 3 liters but less than 2.5 liters.I didn’t even start complaining with the manager – next time I will just order 3 jugs instead. Well it’s really fraud when you are given the wrong change in the restaurant, bar or even at the 7-Eleven by purpose.
