  1. True Blocking Overseas Websites

    In Chrome, go to setting [ 3 dots in the upper right corner]. Scroll down and click Advanced. Now click on Clear Browsing Data, check boxes Cookies and Cache then Clear Data. That should fix your problem.
  2. The only place Trump should be invited to is PRISON.
  3. Dubai’s “Professional Beggars” Earn a Lot More Money Than You

    Doesn't surprise me. I recall reading, professional beggars in NYC earn upwards of $200. an hour.
  4. Handicapped parking permit

    I couldn't find any locally, so I ordered it online
  5. It is worth trying to sell an old Macbook 2010

    Is it 13, 15 or 17" Macbook or Macbook Pro
  6. The best priced Internet leased line @ home

    It's not a leased line. A leased line is 1000MB + and they cost upwards of 10,000B a month. It's regular 3BB consumer service. As for payment. I pay 3BB monthly for my fiber optic 200/200. They always ask for a year upfront. If you challenge them they will offer you monthly billing.
  7. Bank of Bangkok and my pension

    Very easy solution that has been posted here at TV many times. Go to https://www.usdirectexpress.com/ They are approved by SS. Open an account and they will have your SS deposited each month. Now you can do a direct deposit to Bangkok Bank New York for $1.50. Bangkok Bank NY will charge you $5.00 and Bangkok Bank Thailand will charge B200. This deposit is considered cash and no need to go to the bank here in Thailand.
  8. That's not true. For them to seize land or money, they must have a court order to do so. In the US, if they need your land to build a freeway, they must pay you market value.. they just can't take it. It's called "Eminent Domain" The power of eminent domain allows the government to take private land for public purposes only if the government provides fair compensation to the property owner. The process through which the government acquires private property for public benefit is known as condemnation.
  9. Thai banks are required to report any deposit in excess of 2 million baht.The Gov may or may not inquire as to where the money came from. They certainly do not confiscate any funds. They would have to go to court to prove the money was obtained illegally and by that time the money is usually gone.
  10. Sorry, I meant Extension Of Stay..
  11. 180 day rule

    Absolutely correct Dan...
  12. My passport expired and I brought my new PP to Immigration and they transferred my visa. I would go back and ask for the form to transfer a visa to a new PP. Fill out the forum have the photocopy of your visa with you and play dumb. They should transfer the visa.
  13. Glad you got it resolved.. You can always use PromtPay. and all you need to enter is your mobile phone number.. http://www.scb.co.th/en/personal-banking/promptpay BTW, I have used Bangkok Bank for 10 years as they provide the easiest way for me to transfer funds from the US. BUT, when paying bills online, BKK Bank charges 20 - 25 Baht for each payment. Last week I opened an account with SCB. They do not charge per payment and they show you who payments are made to. BKK Bank just shows 3 digit codes that you need to figure out what they are..
  14. Income From Abroad - Tax

    My wife works for the Thai Revenue Dept and said it depends on the source of the income.
