How I was scammed of 500 Baht!!!

Update!

We have recently received an email from Fozia, a person who is claiming to be this girls mother. Even though we have not been able to confirm her identity, she claims that her daughter was mentally ill and somehow did those things due to depression.

When we asked for compensation for the money her daughter scammed from us, she has replied with a threatening email stating that we will be sued. It doesn’t faze me, I can see why this girl would run away from home and act out against her parents. Besides, what kind of parents would leave such a “vulnerable” and “mentally ill” person all alone in a place like Thailand?

We urge anyone who has been scammed by this girl to come forward and demand compensation from her mother. It is not fair that kind and generous people like us are taken advantage of by rude and uncaring people like Maya and her mother Fazia.

Here is the IP address and email of Fazia, if anyone has any further information about either of them, please forward us a message in writing at the comment section below. Thank you.

Scammers come in all shapes and sizes these days. It’s not the average looking guys that are chilling in their Tuk Tuks that you have to worry about. Have a look at the images/videos below, see if you can see a scammer anywhere!?

What’s that? You don’t see a scammer anywhere? Well be warned! This is what the average pro scammer looks like these days. Cute little things that will make up some story about how they have “lost their friends” and that they don’t “have enough money to stay at a hotel tonight”. She promises you that she’ll pay the next day through Facebook somehow.

Guess what happened when we frequented the same club a couple days later? Hmm… surely she’s not gutsy enough to come back to the same ol’ club to pull of the same scam? Is that what you think? Well you think wrong my friend. This devil in disguise has a good little scam going. We bumped into her again, and guess what? Yes… ah huh… indeed, she was pulling the scam on another couple of young girls, pretending to be lost and drunk. But, she sobered up and disappeared fairly quickly when she saw us.

She’s figured out a pretty smart scheme. You see, Zoe’s in Yellow (a club in Chiang Mai) is frequented by young tourists all the time. The thing is, she knows who the regulars are (since she’s a regular herself) and targets people she sees for the first time in the club (or atleast people who look like it’s their first time). Even if the people she has “borrowed” money from try to harrass her on her facebook page. She knows that most people will either be too drunk/lazy to follow up or they will move on to another city/country before they can collect.

I have to say, I didn’t see it coming. Like WOW! It’s pretty damn smart of her to come up with a scheme like this. I mean, she looks so innocent, don’t you guys think so?

Her name is: Maya Umnia Van Elk (from what I could investigate)

Her age is: 19, since her D.O.B is: May 25, 1997
