I've heard about some crazy first hand incidents around these parts about immigration sniffing around businesses and instant 'fines' levied against people for minor infringements, one even when they've got a work permit but momentarily give someone else a hand in a different job title.

have heard similar things;  one poster here even indicated that applying the restriction 'anything a thai can do'  makes it illegal for a retiree to fix up their own home, example, paint it; an interpretation not long ago from immigration official said that even volunteer teaching was illegal

"Volunteer" anything requires a work-permit. 

The "fix up home" etc depends on your local labor/immigration officials and your neighbors attitudes - but many have reported no problems doing that where they live.  Occasional reports do come in with arrests for trivial things, but there is usually a back-story involving a beef involving someone with connections.  

OTOH, if you are involved in a "business" (say, a bar), and do not have a work-permit, you would be advised not to do anything remotely resembling work - even "meet and greet."
