    Yup, it's not that expensive a lesson, I have to admit. I guess I'll have to admit I was just too naive here. But I won't go into retaliation, that's just bad karma. I still wish whoever is behind this got taught a lesson and stopped harming others. This event going unpunished he will almost certainly pull something like this on others eventually. And that annoys me even more than losing 65k THB, which after all is just a couple weeks of work back home.

    Update: The guy stopped answering my messages after I demanded to have a face-to-face meeting and asked for the exact location of their premises. Immediately after website and Facebook page were taken down. I contacted them via Line, which they still didn't take down. Now "someone" is saying "Touy doesn't work here anymore. I'm sending you the money today". My reply: "And who are you?" No answer. Going straight to the police right now.

    Enjoy your field day with someone else's plight. It is quite telling of your character as a being.

    Good advices, thanks. I do tend to be a bit naive. Mostly because I never intend any harm and always intend to honor my word no matter what, so I (naively) expect others to extend me the same courtesy. Funnily enough, in my 40 years of life I've done pretty good assuming goodness in others, but this is not the first time I'm caught off side. I definitely should be less lenient in my due diligences. Thanks again for the actionable advice!

    Thanks The Deerhunter (great movie, by the way!) I totally understand what you say. This was my first instinct with them. I assumed they were simply inefficient, and what you say ("borrowed" some of it and then finding it impossible to give it back, etc) is exactly what I think has happened. So interesting what you say: "Never assume enemy action where sheer stupidity will suffice to explain". I think you are so right there! Thanks again for taking the time to share your two cents with me. You have been most helpful, sir. Even from a philosophical standpoint! ☺

    Thanks, very helpful you too. Enjoy your higher intelligence and rejoice at my dumbness. Be my guest.

    Thanks, man. I just looked up their site and I noticed they have only one address which is very fishy: Sukhumvit 101/1, Bangkok. Probably they just added a "generic" address in their Facebook and it's not even real. I really should have done my due diligence before doing anything with these people. The funny thing is there is several people who have left positive reviews of them, even one here on TV, but mostly about their licensing services, which apparently they outsource to a nice lady. I'll try and go to that address and see what I find...

    Committing mistakes is part of life, worgeordie. So I certainly plan on learning from this one. It's not as much the money that worries me, I have enough. It's the principle. I want these dudes to give me the money back AND learn a lesson. Not sure how to do that yet, but I'll keep searching for options. You have a nice day.

    By the way, I have been in Thailand more than 20 times. And spend a lot of time here. I was just 2 months back in Spain and thought why not get me a treat for when I come back. But don't let my stupid comments spoil your self-righteousness and superior knowledge of life. Enjoy it in all its glory.

    Yeah, another helpful comment.

    Yeah, very helpful. You know, some people actually think others will do what they say they will do, instead of running away with your money. I know I dropped the ball on this one, but if you have nothing helpful to say, keep these useless comments to yourself.

    Thanks a bunch, jackdd. That seems a highly rational plan to follow. Thanks again!

    Thanks, OmegaRacer. Just adapted the text to avoid legal bs. Still I think people should know. Other people are in the risk of being ripped off. In the case that anyone sent me a private message and asked me who they were, I would feel compelled to give it to them.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Incredible that I would still have to pay the <deleted>. That's what laws are for, I guess. To protect criminals. Can anyone give me some actionable advice on how to proceed?
