    Just buy one of these, stick money in it every week and empty it out every three months.



    The problem of course is that Thais don't have the patience to wait three months.

    But, I'm not sure what you are trying to say, or infer.
    But thanks for your thoughts on the matter...
    What I am trying to say is with all the millions your wife has she should stay away from playing this back ass game as its really ment for people that dont have money and risk it to get a lump some. Playing it for the fun when you just dont need the money means you are a retard.
    I think you can understand that
    Some times typing on the phone the atuo spell foks me up.
    So what I am really trying to say is I think you are full of dog turds

    Seems simple just to save the money, I agree...but where are we living?
    And yes, like I said before: They have different concepts of time and space...
    Money in the hand...and gone...
    'What is that ceramic pig for? It's nice...'

    Where's the fishy bank, Thormaturge?

    BaitongBoy as I said before, and as Rigger has hinted, what the fcuk is your missus doing taking part in a 'whatever' when she's financially secure ? What are the benefits ? Obviously you haven't asked her ? That's why you posed the question on here. If you did ask her, then you don't believe her !
    How I see things is, she ain't as well off as she makes out or this game is how she makes her money.
    Death is natures way of telling you to slow down.

    He makes a lot of sense Baitong Boy, you don't even know how much she is pulling in off this.

    Maybe time to sit down with her and find out.

    I mean that in a nice way bud

    Hey, you can see it any way you like, superman...up to you...

    What really surprises me is that most of you guys have never heard of this, ffs...
    Go ask your own lady for the answers...they all do it, or know of it...
    And if she simply gets cash flow from you, alright...then she will maybe miss out on the monthly 'cash flow/gossip session' that she participated in before she knew you....
    And that is the only value I see in it...gossip and cash flow...you pick the order!
    It's a way of life here.

    That's the reason I posted it. It makes no more sense than that to me. I want people to give me their opinion of the game because it really is a Thai/Chinese thing which is foreign to our way of thinking.

    And, Rigger, well, he's damned near illiterate sometimes, but that's ok, reminds me of one of my bros...should be able to take some shit...When I said she's connected, he seemed to think that that didn't matter much, but I'm not sure, because he can't express himself too well here...
    What do you think, superman?
    Hypothetically speaking, of course, would it matter if the person 'holding the money' had a brother/sister/cousin who was in a position of power, as far as the 'risk factor' goes?

    And ffs, we've got other business to deal with...as I'm sure you do...
    Oh, here she comes now...with her hand out...555!



    Welcome to Thailand, the Land of Smiles...they say 'look at the eyes.'

    Only real down side is ensuring that the person who walks away with the 10,000 the first month, stick with putting up the 1,000 every month for the next nine months.

    And that seems to be the major problem.............on the other hand.......if that problem is tackled it may be rather good.
    Instead of saving 10 months THB 1000, the average chance of having THB 10000 in your hands is 5 months. So, it's something between saving and gambling.

    Again, most participants leave the scheme after they got the Golden Pot.

    Stupid game for uneducated Thais. 'Connected' doesn't mean her 'brother' is a traffic cop imo. Can I ask? What is her full-time occupation?

    Didn't understand a fcking thing about the game.

    Probably Bok Dam, somewhat similar to blackjack only the objective is to reach the thai lucky no. 9 and not 21.

    They may be more variations of this game, but the way I know it is this:
    You have to make a secret bid for the pot at the monthly gathering. The one with the highest bid, gets the pot.
    Not only does one have to put up the 1.000 every month but also the "interest" And this amount can be substantial ... let me rephrase that, it can be downright ridiculous as most are - politely put - no good at math and their time horizon usually ends with the setting of the sun.

    Yes, you can ask, teddy...

    Nothing full-time at the moment. Can do most anything part-time since she has worked hard most of her life...loves to cook...the older people really appreciate it because not too many know how to do it.
    Looking to buy business in the next month or so...checking locations and buildings now...
    Sold some land not too long ago, I think while it was still under water...lol!

    Now there's a dangerous game. I know a lady who makes good money and blows most of it on the lottery...but that is her addiction...they just know they will win when some monk or buddha 'tells them the numbers.'
    And cards, well, one lady here makes good money, so I hear...555!

    Yes, I have heard of the real rip-off games, as well. Hers does not work this way.
    That much I know. House rules, again, and everybody is ok with it.

    This is pretty much the way building societies operated in the 18th century.

    I also saw the locals that I used to work with in the middle east had similar schemes going. They basically used them for compulsory savings and would schedule new car purchases around the date that it was time for their payouts.

    Everybody in Thailand knows about this "game" เงินแชร์.
    On second thought, mayby I should rephrase this to all and sundry.....

    Anyone claiming not to know of it, is either a) lying or b) dumber than a first time farang visitor.

    Paste this thai phrase into google and see how many hits you get.

    Maybe some of these so-called experts here will get their eyes opened a bit. Most of them really have the blinders on...
