Pattaya woman demands 5,000 baht before she will return iPhone she found in 7/11 saying she's within her rights

Probably 10,000 if a Farang owned it , she is giving mates rates to the other Kon Thai.

Shame they did not name the bar she works in, it would be useful to boycott the place if they employ dubious characters like this.

I would think you should just boycott  any bar in Pattaya  if your reason to do so is because they are  employing dubious characters.

you can take a Thai out of 7/11 but you can't take the 'Thainess' out of a Thai

Agree to meet her, give her good slap and take the phone back.

Stealing from a shop- normal rule is to pay 10 times the value.

In this case 30,000 baht x 10.

Lock her up until somebody comes up with the 300,000 baht. Case closed!!

Any ways to use to retrieve that phone would be useless so declare it lost and erase all info's on it and get a new one with different number and that little smart ass would have a useless phone.

Welcome to Thailand the land of smiles so do not cry and carry on hollidays are nice and short some time.

She removed it from the 7/11

it was not her property , so arrest her for theft.

and charge her also  for extortion. :bah:

extortion would require the element of threats of violence, bodily harm, etc. Don't think it applies here. But theft may very well apply as this iphone became and was the property of the 7-11 when the finder grabbed it, and would remain the property of 7-11 until the rightful owner came forward to claim it, if found on public property, finder is the sole owner until rightful owner claims it. This is all BNA law and may not apply in Thailand though.

Not always.
 
My wallet fell out of my pocket one night while getting out of the car to open the gate.  Didn't realize it until late next morning.  Checked my iBanking and credit cards, no activity.
 
One of my wife's friends called and brought our attention to a post on a Thai Facebook page with a photo of my US driver's license!  Turned out to be the Headman in a small village about 10 minutes away.  Went out there, said a local resident found my wallet and turned it in.  Everything still there, including 800 some odd Baht in cash.   Tried to give the Headman a "thanks" presento, he was having none of it.

What?! How dare you spoil a good ol Thai bashing thread.

In any normal society she would return the phone and be satisfied she did the "right" thing. Any reward offered by the owner would be a bonus .
But, it would appear we are not in a normal society ☹️

In a Normal society popping it into a postbox would ensure it reached home.

 

7/11 CCTV would have been my first port of call, providing I knew where I'd lost it. I would then ask them to explain how Joe public could nick it.

I am sure if it had been a St. Ferang who found it they would of spent days tracking the owner down and paid her to take it back cos they are all sooooooo honest :)

No, genius. They'd have simply turned it in at the counter. I very much doubt any would be stupid as well as malicious enough to try and hold it for ransom!
