    Bribing Thai's - How Much Do You Give The Cnuts?

    I was just reading a thread about 2 Thai police arrested for extortion, suprised they were arrested, probably didn't share the money around enough, so how much do you give the thieving cnuts?

    Police I normally get away with a 200baht bribe, and no it don't make any difference if you haven't done anything wrong.

    Biggest bribe I ever gave was to a Pattaya City Hall employee who is now dead due to having the shit shot out of him on his doorstep, he was a real piece of work, think I gave him 30k baht, he then got ideas above his station and started extorting real big money from big companies and one of them done the easy route, as he got home and his wife and family got out the car the cnut was shot dead and died crawling up his lawn, good fucking riddance to scum like him, sadly most of these scum aren't killed on their doorstep and continue to extort money, so how much have you paid?

    Oh, the city hall employee was called Mannit or Mannet, a real piece of shite.

    Well , I leave a pile of one hundred baht notes out on the doorstep every night, and any that's left in the morning, I put out again the next night.

    Then start over again.

    And I had to hand over 55,000 baht for planning permission, in the Ampur, with witnesses, and no receipt. He didn't even count it, just put the envelope in his inside pocket.

    I started to object, was told to: "Shush, shush"

    The sad thing is that mannit had full support from the real big bosses, I had a meeting with him one time and phoned up the top man at city hall for planning, I passed the phone to Mannit and he just said, "Do you recognise my voice", that was the end of the conversation, the big boss is now Mr Big Cheese in Pattaya helping the mayor.

    100 bht seems about standard for speeding upcountry. Whether you were or not is a moot point.
    20K gets you the Dodgy 'renew your annual Visa if you don't have the bank balance', at least in Pattaya. That includes the visa fee- some people who have the money offshore safely covered still prefer to do it that way.

    Thats all I've come across, but not doing business here I have little to do with them.

    The biggest was 200 baht for speeding. the copper said I was doing 134Kph. I knew I was doing at least 145kph so gladly paid.
    Have paid about 15-20 speeding tickets the past few years and don't mind 'cos I am usually speeding, so it even ups in th end.
    The smallest was 50 baht in Chiang Mai for not wearing a helmet. Acually it was me and the missus, so it works out at 25 baht each!
    Not really into the Al Capone stuff. Leave it to you boys............

    no such thing as a 30 year lease renewable every 3 years, you got a 3 year lease.

    I was really surprised by the EGAT guy who came to the house to make the switch from the construction meter to the regular meter. Thought when I went to their office to tell them we were ready for the cheaper rate they would stall w/out some 'tea money'. Wouldn't keep the change from 3K baht bill he presented. Actually, I haven't seen any overt double-pricing in my area at all. Probably due to the lack of farangs...

    paid the extra 100 baht visa stamp fee a number of times on my many visa runs, then found out that it was actually a bribe (for just doing what they were paid to do anyway!), so i refused to pay on subsequent visa runs.
    caused me a huge amount of trouble and got those cambo kunts' bloodpressure soaring, but i got to enjoy giving the bastids a hard time.
    at chong chom the cambo's gave me the nickname "strongman" for this reason, and they would use my new nickname in a mocking manner, but i got away with it every time, and it pissed me when i saw fellow visa runners sucking cambo cock and just coughing up the money every time just 'coz they didn't have the balls to stand up for themselves. of course the "stamp fee" would be subject to periodic increases, and i saw one palefaced prick hand over 4 times the normal bribe, just because he was too shitscared to argue the point.
    screw'em and their silly little petty culture of bribery and corruption.
    nobody has to bow and scrape to these tossers, and if one takes the time to learn the rules, and is prepared to argue the point, it is relatively easy to get most things done in thailand without ever having to bribe an official simply to do his job.
    pay the bribe and you screw it up for everybody who comes after you.

    It's all very well to decry the routine corruption, but when you consider the wages of a junior cop- out of which he has to pay for his own gun and motosai- common sense tells you it is built into the system. As you go more senior in the ranks, or if you start off on a nice earner- like Vice in Pattaya, or traffic in Bangkok- you usually have to grease palms to get the job too (or come from the right family). It is going to take more than a stroke of a pen to eliminate this Thai/ Asian 'patronage' mentality.

    ^ relative of the missus thought about joining the police a few years ago - it was a 50K bribe just to get into the training program (this was maybe 10 years ago).

    As for me, one time, 200 baht. Littering.

    A 30 years lease should be registered at the land department and he has upto 3 years to do it, after 3 years that lease is no good, if he keeps issuing you with a new lease every 3 years means he is not paying tax

    Never police but have contributed 3-500 a few times at immigration; the 'immigration volunteers' plainly in on it, spoke to one IV - he spoke to man at counter 3 - back to me told to only go to C3 even if another one was free, and that 500 would help.
    It did.

    That's not our fault. If the job is so poorly paid, then they shouldn't do it, rather than steal from the very people they're supposed to be protecting.

    I got stopped twice a few months ago and refused to pay. Just sat there ignoring the kunts until they said 'off you go'.

    125 bht at immigration, so that they would work over their lunchtime (10:15 AM) to process my docs. Took about 5 minutes. The alternative was to "come back after 2PM". Multiply that by maybe 30 a day and it's not hard to work out why the bastards all drive brand new pick-ups.

    Nah.
    You could pay them the same salary as any Western cop and they'd still be on the take. That's all the Royal Thai Police are; a feudalistic extortion / money collection agency.
    That is their nature.

    25k one time to make a DWI disappear, plus 7k for the lawyer to make it happen.(can't do that in the USA)

    Yesterday on hwy 2 in the Toyota I got nabbed for going 125kph. I was going closer to 145kph! I made a slight pretense at denial, his English was good, his hand was out, he wanted 200 baht, I gave him 150 and I was back on the road in less than a minute going 140kph as I figured they were behind me now.
    I think it's a great way to handle it.
    In the USA it would have a $200+USD fine and a long song and dance about licenses, registration, insurance and shit full of pretentious officious crap.

    ^Mr Earl got it spot on there, I am quite happy paying a 4 quid bribe for speeding here in Thailand considering it is 60 quid back home plus points on your licence.

    Every c*nt moaning about it but at the end of the day money talks here alot louder than back home.

    I used to begrudge paying any sort of bribe until I got stopped back home for not wearing a seatbelt and got fined 60 quid!! As the twat checked my details over the radio I was thinking to myself if this was in Thailand I would have been on my way by now only 4 quid lighter.

    ^ Agreed - the worst nigtmare is when you gte stopped for speeding and they won't take a bribe. You have to find some little cop shop out in the suburbs to pay your 120 baht..... Much rather pay 200 up front.
