The Scam
The Scam
From the evening on, Khao San Road and the surrounding streets fill up. In this scam, tourists are deliberately fleeced. A tourist finds a purse lying on the ground. Picking up the purse, the honest finder looks around and wants to return it to its owner.
already too late
But by this time it is already too late. The person suddenly appears and demands the purse back, then opens it and grumbles about missing cash. Suddenly about 200€ are missing. Of course, the money is then demanded from the honest finder under threat of police action. According to reports from victims, the threats seem to be very rude and scary.
be careful
As a foreigner in a country, you can only be advised to keep a low profile. Of course, it is extremely unfortunate how people are cheated here, especially when it happens to honest finders who might even have brought the purse to the police. Unfortunately, one must therefore advise people to keep a low profile and not to touch the purse in the first place in such a case. You might be travelling in a group, in which case there would be witnesses. But the majority would be on their own. Lets hope that this scam does not become a typical case, as there are already a few things to be aware of. More about scams in other articles: Fraud schemes
