Pattaya Jetskis

Recommended Posts

Having just seen the Pattaya One knife article in News Clippings, I wonder just how out of control this is going to get before someone is killed or hospitalised.

A BIG well done to Pattaya One.

:clap2:

Now wouldn't it be terrible if the beach road area, particularly the Mikes Mall area was to become littered with copy's.

Some people are just so lazy leaving their papers laying around after reading them.

Free to download off the internet and print as many as you like.

:clap2:

yes nice job there.

but it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

spend even a relatively short time on the beach (esp near mike's) and sooner rather than later one will unfold infront of you.

it's cheap entertainment except for the 1 who hired the jet ski

Yes well done Pattaya One the story was well put together , but the scam is everywhere along the beach and the guys who are hiring these skis are also the chair hirers it is more than a scam it is criminal agrevated theft .

What I found particularly offensive about this story was that when the Tourist Police turned up, not only did they not arrest the crook who was waving a knife on a public beach, but they actually colluded in making the tourists hand over 5,000 baht. The TP live in Pattaya and know the score as well as the rest of us, and they still allowed these guys to be ripped off. Not only will these first time tourists not be coming back to Pattaya, none of their friends will either. And how many times does this happen every week?

Very good to Pattayaone for this story.

2 days ago I saw these same people scamming some Iranians pointing to the same rubber trim.

The day before that they were doing it to some Russians. The same police man shows up every time.

Sorry for the bad photo quality

In among the postings on the News Clippings thread was this very useful suggestion for people who want to take some kind of sensible action, from one of the regular posters on the Pattaya forum:

If you guys want to do something productive, email TAT. If they get enough emails from concerned tourists, maybe something will be done...like was done in Phuket. It can't hurt, and won't take much of your time. There is a "contact us" spot on the bottom of the web page. Get involved, send an email!

Or direct link to the contact us form:

Do you honestly believe the Tourist Police are there to protect tourists? They are there to police the tourists and make sure they don't cause trouble for Thais. Even those trying to rip them off. Reality attack needed!

There should be some sort of warning signs near the beach area , beware of jetski scams , maybe we could ask the Pattaya Mayor to do something?

A week or so I overheard a group of Irish tourists at a restaurant talk about how they were going to go out soon to rent jetskis and what a great time it was going to be. Should we try to warn naive tourists? I didn't of course and I don't think many people would, but should we?

I think in that case we should. Being Irish I have to admit I am slightly biased but it is equally maddening to see any gullible tourists being robbed this way.

FWIW I sent an email today to the Irish Consul enclosing the link to the story and advising that Irish Government advice to travellers to Thailand be updated urgently advising of these scams. I would be very surprised if the Consulate were not aware of this recent incident.

[email protected] for any one who would wish to do the same.
