This often turns into a nightmare when it’s time to check the bill and it’s rather a couple of thousand baht than a couple of hundred.You then have no choice but to pay what they ask for as it can turn violent if you start make an argument.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?Or is it because we always have that nice marketing slogan “Thailand – Land of Smiles” in our head and just tend to believe all the crap Thai people are telling us if they give us their charming smile? Below are ten of the most common scams in Thailand and a few of them are actually being conducted by foreigners that run out of money – there is a growing number of them who rather go this way than “giving up” and getting on a plane back to their home country.It’s supposed to be 3 liters of draft beer and if you look at the outer tube that is actually the case.But then they put an additional smaller tube with ice inside that takes off at least 20-30% of the space.Beer Tower Scam This one doesn’t seem to be discussed (or noticed) anywhere but it’s really annoying.Just yesterday I went to one of my favorite bars here in Bangkok with a few friends who visited me from Germany (not going to mention the name, I’ve seen it before at other places) and I thought it might be a good idea to share a beer tower.
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.
Patpong Sex Show Scam The famous scam that a lot of newbies to Thailand run into as they think experiencing a ping pong show in Bangkok’s oldest red light district, Patpong, is a must do.
The scam consists of Thai guys approaching you at the night market in front of the go go bars offering free ping pongs shows and even better: drinks for just 100 baht each.
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.
Like you pay with a 1,000 baht note and they give you change as if you paid with a 500 baht note. This almost exclusively happens in the most touristic areas like Phuket’s beaches, Khaosan Road and Sukhumvit in Bangkok and most areas in Pattaya.
