Brit caught working for 50 Baht per day on overstay visa

A 57-year-old man from the UK, whose name has not been released, was arrested for overstaying his visa. That’s not exactly breaking news but the story he told police is shocking.

He told tourist police that he has been working as a construction worker for THB50 (US$1.55) per day because his Thai girlfriend stole his passport, money, and credit cards and abandoned him.

He said he had no choice but to perform manual labor for well under the minimum wage in order to survive after she left him penniless. For police, the simple visa overstay situation has become a possible theft case and they are searching for the alleged Thai female perpetrator, reported The Nation.

The man told police he met the Thai woman during a vacation in Lopburi and she invited him to stay at her house before stealing his valuables. He said that he is saving money to return to his country. It is also unclear where the woman went, especially since he knows where she lives.

Tourist Police Bureau deputy commissioner Pol. Maj. General Surachet Hakparn said, during a press conference yesterday, that the man claims he was a postman in the UK and is retired. He said that he gets a monthly pension of GBP300 (THB13,000), but has been unable to access it since his cards were stolen.

He told police that he would like to file a lawsuit against the woman for theft and the police have contacted Bangkok’s British Embassy to see if they can assist in sending him back to the UK. Coconuts has contacted the embassy with a request for the man’s name and how they plan to help him. If they provide details, we will update this story.

The man was one of nine foreigners arrested in immigration police raids around Bangkok yesterday. Local, tourist, and immigration police worked together to perform 28 raids on addresses around the city that were suspected of housing undocumented foreigners.

    Moral of the story, do not enter into any long term relationship with these devious, dishonest RFD or you too will see your life and quality of life demoted below that of a Thai sewer rat!

    • gwats1957

      And please, DO NOT believe a word Ken has to say about Thai people.. he is a bitter, xenophobic old white guy with a grudge against anyone who isn’t from his gene pool…….. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c2a7d0b9129e931a5879263861eccf6abe6d798c7aef9dbcc7c637d63303f52.jpg

          No doubt…..

      • Bahtbus

        And you are a racist old black guy with an almighty big chip on your shoulder

        • gwats1957

          Really? Because I stand up to stupid old White guys who are bitter and broken, and pissed off because because Thailand didn’t solve all their problems, or wash their sins away? The problem isn’t the Thai people, or the way they handle their business, it’s guys like you who they probably view as a walking joke……. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f8e63fcce9ec5f83d04216ee88ab293773e82cd512bd387023014e7594014342.jpg

          Why are you calling him a racist? He just disagrees with the comments posted by a bitter man that happens to be white. Does not mean that he has a grudge with all white men.
          And I find it kind of curious that you are calling him a racist but keep it shut when some white-trash (no it is not racist, I am white myself and do not consider all white men to be trash, but have to admit that some of them are) inbred parsnip farmer son from Nowhereshire calls a Thai “baboons”. Are you one of those one-sided Political correctness zealot?

          • Bahtbus

            You do admit that you, scum sanchez and charles no baht are all racist because you are one and the same right? You are the last person to talk and you are the biggest racist troll here going after Brits daily with your personal attacks.

          • Guest

            I am not Charles or Rick, I don’t know them and can only speak for myself. I (like the vast majority of people in Continental Europe) don’t like Brits that is for sure cause most of them don’t behave like civilized people: they drink like there is no tomorrow, shout out of their lungs, fight for no reason, criticize everything and everyone that is not English (that is where the expression whinging pom comes from). I cannot wait for the 29 March 2019.
            Can you answer that question Mr Holier than thou Pom? Why are you calling Gwats a racist and keep it shut when one of your fellow pom calls Thai “baboons”?

          • Bahtbus

            So you are saying it is ok to be racist towards all Brits because of the actions of some? That is the same criticism of others here you buffoon and you don’t get it and we all know you are charles no baht and scum sanchez which is shy you all upvote each other.

          • Guest

            Wrong my friend, I am neither Rick nor Charles, just a guy who shares their opinion about POMS and why do you avoid to answer my question?
            Dodging the ball, answering a question by another one is the oldest trick in the book, you are not fooling anybody you cretin

          • Bahtbus

            I just proved you are both of those low lives but why do you keep avoiding the question, why is it ok to bash all Brits as you do daily but whine when people go after Thais?

          • Guest

            Still avoiding my question stupid pom

          • Bahtbus

            Still avoiding my question, idiot with many user names on P!?

          • Gentle_Snowman

            That is OK that you dont like english but why dont you say it to an englishmans face? instead of hiding behind your keyboard. Cant stand cowardly sh1tbags

          • Guest

            You call Thai “baboons” in their faces mister courage or you keep that for this website?

          • Gentle_Snowman

            Why would iI call a Thai person a baboon I dont dislike them

          • Guest

            Come on Ken, you post that kind of stuff everyday

          • Gentle_Snowman

            Ha ha Im not him, your cowardly paranoid brain is frazzled, go out confront and an englishman and say whats on your mind, you will feel like a man afterwards

          • Guest

            If you are not him and you cannot stand people you call “cowards” why don’t you tell people who call Thais “baboons” or “hillbillies” to say that in their faces? Why when somebody speaks bad of Arabs you don’t dare them to say that in the face of a young arabic guy you one-sided holier than thou Pom?

          • Gentle_Snowman

            Your feeble response doesnt make sense maybe except to your spineless mind. The person Im talking to now is you, not somebody else talking about baboons or hillbillies, YOU If I want to say something to someone at least I would back it up. your all mouth

          • Guest

            I wrote countless times that I live in Dublin so you don t take any risk. I won t fly to Pattaya to prove you wrong.
            You still did not answer my question pom: how come, if you cannot stand people who don t say out loud what they write you never challenged somebody calling Thais baboons to say that in the face of a young Thai man?

          • Gentle_Snowman

            thats great Im in Liverpool, tell me when your coming over for the footy or something I would gladly meet you,

          • Guest

    • Keith Leeder

      I’ve been married 5 years now to thail lady, never been happier, we share everything.she has a business and certainly pays her share of expenses.
      So what you say about Thai girls is so full of bullshit.

      • gwats1957

        My best friend married a Thai girl 9 years ago, she came to the US, learned English, https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/06355a5fb7830ddb4a6f9048145f8f56dc536ce33458515a893beae0cae5f123.jpg had a child, set up a very successful nail shop, and has kept my friend very happy… Thai folks rule…… He visited Thailand at my urging, and it worked out really well for him….

        • Sly

          Rubbish. The odd relationship may work where the partners are reach some compromises but by in large the relationships here are economic in nature. Marrying a nubile young gold digger is no more likely to be a success here than back home.

          • gwats1957

            Not ALL of these girls are gold diggers, but with the crushing poverty you have here, it takes a little effort to find one that is really interested in a good relationship, not just financial security…. The same could be said of girls from any Country. When my buddy married her, I had my doubts, and there were rough patches along the way, but they’ve made it. NEVER judge a book by its cover. Just because it didn’t work for you doesn’t mean it doesn’t work….. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e446e0cc5bbd0249a4a74c33fbe551f5f7f0954a88741aa7cc68ce6152dddb95.jpg

          • Sly

            That’s what I was a alluding to, I was commenting more on Thai folks being number one which is clearly rubbish. As with all developing world dating it’s inevitable most, but clearly not all, will end up with gold diggers. It’s less likely to happen back home because the wealth disparity is generally less, simple economics. The reality is Ken is far closer to the truth even though you don’t like it.

          • gwats1957

            Interesting point, but Ken seems to have a particularly fierce animosity towards Thai women.., I’m guessing he’s had a traumatic fail with one or two.. I’ve had a buddy or two experience ‘buyers remorse’ with Thai girlfriends/wives… Maybe it’s because they entered these relationships with unrealistic expectations, and the breakups were very ugly.. My best friend married a Filipina, and she gave him 20 of years of misery till his heart failed… My Uncle married a Thai lady back in the 1970s, and they had seven kids and they were together till he died… You never really know how these things will go….

          • Gary

            I knew an old guy who married an absolutely stunningly beautiful girl in her early 20’s. He built her a very nice house and bought her a new pickup truck. After the house was totally furnished, she kicked him out. Of course we felt sorry for him but he just laughed and said that the money he spent was well worth it. He said that not many men have ever had the opportunity to spend several years with a girl as beautiful as her. He said that he still had more than enough money and was going to look for another one just like her. The moral of the story being that none of us can take any money with us when we pop our clogs. Enjoy it while you can.

          • Sly

            BINGO, the only problem is the lads who for whatever reason fail to understand this and don’t have the means to recover. I guess it’s not so funny for them.

          • Gary

            A person has to be delusional or simply stupid to come over here on a shoe string and believe that you are going to find a young beautiful lady and live happily ever after. I’m certainly not wealthy but my pensions are about double what It costs me to live exactly as I choose. My US bank account just keeps growing.

          • Sly

            The place is full of delusional, naive, desperate or stupid people. You must have met a few? They are cannon fodder for these girls. Though there are exceptions relationships here are no different to a Ponzi scheme or Nigerian email scam. It’s not people like you or me getting done and for most holiday fun and a quick departure is advisable as they’ll quite happily hand over their life savings.

          • Guest

            Nice story and I like the way your mate looked at it.

      • ken

        So Khun Thai Apologist how do you explain the excessive number of expats who are fleeced, robbed, or killed by these RFD on a regular basis? Five years is nothing, come back to me in another five when your funds are gone. Also, a fruit cart is not what we would consider to be “a business” as they make less than 500B a day.

        • Gary

          My Thai farmer’s daughter has been putting up with me for more than ten years. I’m a crotchety old fart so that is not easy for her. She doesn’t have to work but she works for the electric company because she wants more spending money than I am willing to give her.

          • ken

            This is the day for the incredulous stories, Suddenly we have men who reside in a brothel of a country all with Thai RFDs with decent, normal jobs. She works for the electric company? Shocking, but we don’t believe you but I do pity you for your poor attempt at rehabilitation of these tarts but do start the rehabilitation process with yourself first Gary.

          • Gary

            Why would you want to live in a country you obviously hate. Are you actually that stupid or did you get fleeced by a farmers daughter and can’t afford to leave? I think that regardless of where you live, you will remain a bitter twisted sorry man. I’d also bet that you were a miserable person in your home country. You seriously need mental help.

          • ken

            So now you a qualified to diagnose someone you have never met in person Doctor Gary? You and your other apologists are living in denial because deep down inside in you know that I know that you know I am right.

          • Gary

            You are obviously a sick miserable person so I don’t need to be a doctor to know that you need help. I have a good life and am quite content. You really think you are right being miserable? That pretty much says it all.

          • ken

            I am a truth teller and bollocks detector and I am calling you out as living in fantasy land. When a man has to stoop down to tell others how great his life is, it is not and you know that I am saying I am right about you being delusional not anything to do with being miserable. However, I am getting this image of you being a miserable fart living with a tart who makes a living pushing a cart in fantasy land.

          • Gary

            You make the mistake of thinking that everyone is as miserable as you are. I can assure you that is not the situation. Some of us actually enjoy living here in Thailand. I live in my wife’s home upcountry and when I want a change of scenery, I have a nice condo in Jomtien that just happens to be in MY name.

            Where do you live? Likely in a small rat hole., right?

          • ken

            So you are a miserable leech, living in your wife’s parents hovel in Issan? Yes I am getting this vivid image of you being a total loser and t0sser. The more you write the clearer your horrible character is manifesting itself. I live in a castle compare to your flea bag life style. The least you could do is to assist your wife in pushing her fruit cart instead of making a fool of your imbecilic self here,

          • Gary

            I can compare posters to different kinds of drunks. You have happy amiable drunks who just want to socialize and enjoy life. You have obnoxious mean drunks who are looking for a physical fight. You have drunks who believe they are God’s gift to women. Finally you have drunks who just sit and cry. They spend their drunken lives feeling sorry for themselves and blaming the world for the life they themselves created.

            The bottom line here is that there is only one person in your life that can make you happy or miserable. That is YOURSELF. Up to you.

          You just an old grumpy Muppet proberly been let down because you have nothing nice to say about anyone and buy the way my wife’s earns over 100000bht a month so does not need me to take care of

          • ken

            Hahahahahahahaha! Your “wife earns over 100000bht a month”? Bullocks! Even with an ice cream cart, she could not earn that much so we all know you are a liar.

          • Keith Leeder

            What would you know you troll
            There are many professional woman who work respectable jobs but guess you one off those that’s been fleeced 5555

          • ken

            Wrong Keith and please stop with the personal attacks as I have not been fleeced. Yes many professional women work respectable jobs but they don’t make 100000bht a month and they are not with you.

          • Guest

            Just because you were fleeced by your barfined love does not mean that all Thai girls are dishonest, you parsnip farmer’s son. There are plenty of honest hard-working Thai girls but you wouldn’t know them as they do not fall in love with useless beer-gutted barflies who spend all their time seated on bar stools drinking cheap bear and badmouthing everything Thai.

    Yet further proof that these rice farmers daughters are indeed toxic, and best avoided for anything but a quick short time liaison.

    • Gary

      There are just a couple easy rules that will prevent things like this happening. Number one is to never spend more than you can easily afford to walk away from. Number two is never be worth more dead than alive.

      Always remember that a fool and his money are easily parted. How smart s a farang who allows an ignorant farm girl to fleece him? The guys who criticize these farm girls are obviously VERY stupid themselves.

      • Ken Anderson

        It is not me you need to be giving this advice to. What you say here I have been fully aware of for at least two decades.

      His story came undone with the 50 baht a day crap line

  • Charles Baht Esquire.

    Likely story sounds like the shifty as sh*t old Brit has pulled the wool over the coppers eyes with some sob bleeding heart story giving that there is no proof and is all alleged . He in fact is a typical drunkard slobbering spew stained Brit that lives for each day sitting at the cheap charlie beer chang bars swirling chang beers all day and night he just pulled the stolen passport and credit or debit card stolen old story line because he got caught a simple check with his bank statements would have sorted out his crap rehearsed story line .

  • What?

    I didn’t know that there is an “Overstay Visa”. A visa overstay I know.

  • Chris Snell

    Where is the first place you would go if your passport and cards are stolen ? what a load of crap he has run out of coin and is living like ken anderson on the streets of pattaya baring his a**** for all and sundry slinking from tree to tree seeing if there are any dregs left in bottles left by other foreigners so he can slurp them down whilst dreaming of his long lost rfd

  • Ricksanchez

    50 baht a day is too much to pay this fat slap headed c–t of a Brit. Typical penniless scrounging Brit. Brit’s like this are a dime a dozen. Get him and his fellow countrymen out, they are all pedo scum.

    Strange story: this bloke lost his documents and credit cards and does not contact his credit card company or the embassy?
    I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he is one of those Brits with outstanding warrants that managed to give the imcompetent British authorities the slip and found his way to Thailand. Kudos to Thai cops for catching this illegal immigrant.

    • Ricksanchez

      Spot on Guest, for all the negative comments the police get thrown at them they have just made Thailand a little bit safer by removing this piece of English trash from society. Without a shadow of doubt he’s a career criminal probable sex offender hiding in Thailand.

      • Charles Baht Esquire.

        Every single Brit entering or in Thailand must be rounded up and a complete warrant check must be done it’s clear and obvious these lawless and potential sex offenders are hiding amoungst the drunkard ranks .

  • Gentle_Snowman

    There is something fishy about this story. I know the going rate for a Thai labourer out in the sticks is about 300 baht per day and about 200 baht per day for cheap cambodian labour, some australians will even work for soiled underpants from young thai boys so this just doesnt add up.

  • Bobby Toor

    I’ve been in a similar situation where a girl invited me back to stay with her rather than the hotel , I was paying her about 10000 baht a week, ok , I thought until she kept asking for more money at which point she locked me out of her condo, I broke in managed to grab my passport which she was threatening to burn had a massive physical fight with her at which point I broke two of her teeth ! and she calls the police and gets me arrested. !!! Ive no respect for any Thai people any more and feel so sorry for Thai people who think they are Buddhists but so morally wrong in their attitude and beliefs.

    • herb sewell

      No respect for Thai people because of this one girl? Do you share any of the blame Bobby? You broke in, which is a crime called breaking and entering, you assaulted her and broke two of her teeth, another crime and now you have no respect for Thai people. Not excusing what she did but you are not blameless in this situation.

      • Hard to believe that you are indicating that people –men– remain cool, calm, and collected when someone act in such a mean way. No wonder get abused by some women.

      • Charles Baht Esquire.

        Why would you leave your possessions like a passport in her room in the first place .

    • Charles Baht Esquire.

      Why do you idiot can’t think for yourself farangs put yourselves in that situation in the first place why don’t you complete the full story and break down on your knees and cry I thought she loved me she was different to all the others if your that dumb asz to think these broads actually like you slobbering sniveling fat old drunkard slob Farangs you deserve what you get and deserved to be ripped off.
