Hello,
I'm working on a series of documentaries on Tourist Scams all over the world (Europe, States, South America etc...) We are planning on filming in Thailand, and I was wondering if any of you have been scammed at all. I'm very keen to hear from travellers who may have fallen for the Gem Stones scam, the Scratchcard scam, or the Gambling scam...or anything else at all. We want to focus of clever elaborate scams rather than individual cases of people being ripped off.
My telephone number is 0044 (0)1273 224 251 and my email address is:
kyra.b@electricsky.com
I look forward to hearing all your stories!
Kyra

What is the scratchcard scam about?

It's when someone approaches you saying you've won something on a scratchcard and then says you have to attend a 'short' presentation in order to win your prize, and you end up in a very high pressure sales pitch with no prize to boot. Some people pay deposits, and then the compnay 'disappears'.
