Retire to Pattaya Thailand!

 

 Issue 162

 

Are you the next victim in Pattaya?


For years, expats have been warned about being 'ripped-off by lieing Thais'. They're always looking for ways to take advantage of falangs.

From the well-known jet-ski scam on Pattaya beach to Bangkok tours of 'jade jewelry shops', it's endemic in Thailand.

But a far more serious threat is rarely discussed.

Something more deceptive that can catch even the savviest person.

I'm speaking of......



....Farangs cheating farangs. And a VERY real problem that Thai authorities nearly always ignore.

Whether an 'investment' in a 'guaranteed, sure-thing' (many times night-life related) or buying pre-construction property, these con artists abound--especially in Pattaya.

Maybe they're from your country, are likeable, and create the appearance of being particularly 'respectable, well-connected, and educated.'

Unfortunately, though, your perception can be costly.

So, as I've advised here and here consider CAREFULLY before putting substantial sums into the Kingdom.

No matter how attractive the proposition sounds.

I don't know Mr. Drummond but find his investigations consistent with what I've observed, heard from others, and have read in the local press.
