    Fool...Money...easily parted. Myanmar man owns up to being daft

    Burmese Tourist “tricked” out of 15,000 Baht in North Pattaya
    Posted on June 6, 2014 at 5:31 am
    On Thursday evening a 29 year old Burmese Tourist reported the theft of 15,000 Baht by a man described as “Middle-Eastern” in appearance, outside of a convenience store in North Pattaya.

    Mr. Soe Lin, presented himself at Pattaya Police Station and told officers that he was standing outside of a convenience store on Pattaya Second Road in front of the Alcazar Show Theatre and had just been to a Money Exchange Booth where he changed-up US Dollars for Thai Currency. He was approached by the “Middle-Eastern” man who appeared confused about the Thai Currency. He asked Mr. Lin if he could show him some Thai Currency. Mr. Lin claimed he handed over approximately 30,000 Baht.

    After some shuffling of notes the money was returned and the confused man left. Moments later Mr. Lin checked the money and claimed it was 15,000 Baht short of the 30,000 Baht which he had exchanged moments earlier.

    Police will check security cameras in the area as the hunt for the trickster begins.

    I'm assuming he gambled it away, his missus got the hump, so he made this up to which she then said "Go tell the cops then"....

    Or could he be this stupid? If so, how is he alive?

    As we all know wagering is esched in this Buddhist paradise perhaps he was 'sponsering a pole dancing student"
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
