    Is this scam operating in your area ?

    It seems that people where I live are being told that if they claim they were communists from way back they are entitled to 300,000 Baht per person. Why communists I cant fathom that bit out? In the next village they are being told they can also have free land down in Sa Kaeo, along the Cambodian border.
    To get the 300,000 Baht, each person has to pay 2,000 Baht. My MIL is so convinced that she's applied on behalf of my wife and BIL, and paid the 6,000 Baht. My missus can see it's a scam, but the natives are being swallowed up big style here.
    A woman up from me had 100,000 Baht in her bank. She pulled the lot out to pay for other family members which she believes will be repaid once their 300,000 Baht is issued.
    Any scams like this going on where you live in monkey land?

    "The group urged Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to speed up the payment to assist them under the so-called Prime Minister's Office order No. 66/23, a policy that put a political solution before military means to end the communist threat in the 1980s.

    La-iad Rattanasri, chairman of Thailand Development Group, said the PM's order at that time agreed to provide communist insurgents with 15 rai of land, five cows and one house as well as a sum of money for them to take up a career and not get involved in creating problems for the country's administration.

    He said after they agreed to follow the order, the government ignored them until the Abhisit Vejjajiva-led government issued an order to give them compensation of 225,000 baht each in 2011."

    I've figured out the free land bit, may be a bit hard on the cows though:

    the landmine situation in Sa Kaeo Province bordering Cambodia, is the most densely mined area in Thailand

    ****

    How would one proved they were an ex-Communist?

    Any potential for ex-Nazis to cash in with land/house and old cow?

    strangely, people are talking about claiming compensation

    anyone that may have met him have now made up stories that he abused them, it is hilarious

    whilst he did obviously abuse young teen girls, anyone else is a bit suspect

    You'll probably have more luck rooting around in the closets in Strasbourg and Brussels.

    My ex is a alcoholic lapsed catholic of Irish descent. Surely I'm entitled to something?
