Stoney Monday

49 posts in this topic

I only go because I get an attractive " benefit " in another way for doing so although I'm not going to mention what is because I would

give the game away :)

:D you hook up with the girls who take your details as well :D some lookers i'll give you that :D

good thinking, so you go 50/50 with the payment the girl gets for taking you there?

No one half decent would do that -take salary money from a Thai :D

in any case they only get peanuts

The going rate for a good 'up' (lead) was about 50 pound sterling that was way back in 1989 in Tenerife, dont know what it is in this day and age and in Asia, not bad money back then if they was getting 20 a week in.

All over Patong. I talked to one of the girls who was basically pleading with me because she need a finders fee. They are paid peanuts and have to hide from the cops that shake them down for 1000 baht every so often. The sales people in Patong are working illegally (no work visas for the job), which should tell you something about the promoters. Why any short time visitor would waste time with the ripoff isn't worth the time to wonder why.

:) We 'bought' a discounted holiday club membership and paid $2500NZ up front then $550 monthly until a large sum $1500 was debited from our credit card without authorisation. We are to become eligible fo cheap holiday accomodation after 60% of the $8,000NZ is paid , which is now. We haven't received our DAE details yet , and have just discovered all these scam forums,

Will cancel credit card of course and see what happens.

Dumb tourists.

I was hijacked today from a more than enthusiastic guy on a motorbike and was hauled over to their sales office.

After ninety minutes sales representation I backed out. Seemed like they had a reasonable plan for business offering 50% discount on more than 7600 resorts around the world and availability to buy into their resorts in thailand.

Don't know how much it'll cost to buy into that and one of their arguments was that you could get a studio in a five star resort for as little rent as 99-199 dollars for one week.

What's the catch here and is it just another time share extortion system?

Somebody that knows anything about them?

Btw they gave me T-shirt and a 7 days, six nights vacation voucher on their resorts in thailand (from the lottery tickets they handed out).

Regards

What amazes me is how much it must be costing these people to run these operations.

My guess is they only need to scam a few marks for a lot of money, and that pays for all of their operating expenses.

My objection is their tactics to gather leads. A few days ago just walking peacefully along in Jomtien and one of their moto salesman cuts right in front of me at a high speed blocking my path, and blurts out, Do you speak English? I give him a dirty look, ignore him and walk on and he does it again!

Now if I was a tourist and this happend to me once on a trip I wouldn't think much of it. But living here this kind of thing has happened many times.

One lady that I knew previously said she gor 20bt for every person who filled out a form for her but it was a good way of getting customers of the other services she offered.

They are all paid commission only so the cost structure is minimal. None of the falangs involved have work permits.

The Thais do get as said 20 baht for each CONFIRMED person. They do not get anything if you give a false name/number.

I knew one little corker who used to ply her trade with the mob that stands on Beach Road opposite the bigger Starbucks. I knew her from her twirling days. She is now married to an American and lives in Chicago. He apparently knows nothing of her past. I spoke to him once and he was adamant he didn't go with 'professionals'.

Hi Gabbie,

Dont think you are alone,we experienced the same except we are still paying the partial payments in fear to lose the right to the timeshare.

Did you managed to reclaim your deposit?

On the basis of misrepresentation we might have a chance.

Let me know,we wont give up so easy, we are stronger in numbers.

Hasn't Stoney Monday closed down already?

I have been caught by this company and feel so abused by what these people have done. I paid a lot of money only to find out i was scammed. My DAE number i got was not valid even though they told me as i paid in full it would be. I had a weeks holiday supposedly booked only to find out when calling the hotel they booked me into that stoney monday had cancelled all bookings. I have flown out to Thailand in a vain effort to see them and to my amazement they have completely closed everything down. I have tried to call on numerous occassions with no success and when emailed them had no reply ( i still await one )

What if anything can i do to get something from this?

I feel i have just lost all of my money and these animals dont even bat an eyelid.

VERY ANGRY.

REply to Interpol:

We tried contacting DAE Asia/ Australia but they refer us straight back to Stoney Monday and they gave us a new contact person; Rhys Hayes , whose name is very similiar to Rell Hayes the Managing Director of SM. We are also hoping it isn't a scam, because we love to holiday, but this has put us off Thailand altogether.

Stoney Monday, under Rell Hayes, has closed down in Thailand. Mr Hayes basically swindled investors out of millions and is now being sought to be brought back to Thailand for justice. My understanding is he has reopened in Bali to scam more people.. DAE or Dial an Exchange that they sell is free to join for anyone one that is about to fall for this scam. Mr Hayes however has decided to make fake pictures and even mock building displays to fool people into thinking their is are will be these 5 star resorts to stay in once you are a member. THIS IS ALL NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. Mr Hayes did not pay his staff the money owed or the loans he has accumulated in Thailand and he is now on the run from the investors he has stolen this money from for this scam. He is trying to take some of the stolen money and reopen the scam in Bali....So BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!! any questions just ask me...
