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. So it happens at famous tourist attractions like the Grand Palace or National Museum in Bangkok that you are approached by a local Thai before you even reach the attraction and he tells you it’s closed today (usually they give you a Buddhist national holiday as a reason which they assume foreigners don’t know about).
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.
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.
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.
There are also regular incidents where foreign travelers report being robbed valuables, especially during overnight trains and buses.
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.You might not even have heard about this kind of scam yet but this is actually the crime tourists lose the most money in Thailand and it’s one of the scams that mainly foreigners are organizing.
