CityNews – A lottery vendor has made a complaint to the police after she has been fined for overpricing her lottery tickets three times in a month after she refused to pay a supposed police officer ‘neighbourly support money’.

 

On May 16th, a 65 year old lottery vendor at Chiang Mai Gate Market made a complaint that despite accepting that she is still over-charging for her lottery tickets, the police have been unfairly targeting her.

Probably just the tip of the iceberg with lottery sellers in high traffic areas

The PM announced a few years back with great fanfare he would fix the lottery problem of overcharging. Chalk that one up as another FAIL.

I hate this over charging. Some of them have a sign up for 80 Baht but want 100 Baht when you give the correct change.

 

I won't buy at the wrong price and they'd change their tune if no one else did for a week or 2.

I hear that at 80 baht they make 4 baht profit per ticket.

She probably believes that she is doing nothing wrong by overcharging as everyone does it. But isn't this a typically Thai story - one crook complaining about another crook taking advantage of her as she's a crook, and admitting to the police that she's a crook in full knowledge that they will do nothing at all about it.

Actually out here in Khampaeng Phet that did work, but only in the short term. Now it is back to the bad old days.

At 80 baht they make a small profit.

 

At 100 baht each for 2 with the same number they make 40 baht plus their normal commission.

 

If they sell 1,000 tickets every 2 weeks they can earn up to 80,000 baht plus their normal commission per month.

 

Nice job if they can get it.
