Thailand dating scams

This even happens during day travel when buses stop for food and all passengers are requested to leave.

Also beware of strangers in overnight trains who invite you for drinks as some foreigners get drugged and when they wake up they find their money and other belongings gone.

Usually, before you trust that person, you’d have to take things slowly and get to know each other better rather than falling for their story and end up with a broken heart along with an empty wallet.

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.

Apparently it’s not enough that foreigners pay regular visa fees and spend a lot of money for modern accommodation, western standard products and quality food.

Thai people even demand higher prices for entrance fees from foreigners compared to local Thai people.

They are then inviting you to go to another attraction together which turns out to be a gem, silk, tailor or other kind of shop.

In addition, we help you get an understanding about that special someone and ensure that you are not involved in any scams in Thailand!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.There are also regular incidents where foreign travelers report being robbed valuables, especially during overnight trains and buses.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.This is what is called a scam and not just tourists in Thailand encounter them but also expats actually living here that just haven’t got the experience to know when to believe a Thai person and when better to be careful. Is it because a large part of the Thai population is still extremely poor working for 300 Baht a day or even less and see a “walking ATM” in every foreigner they come across?
