Bloody hell. He's clearly done that before judging from the footage!

Why? nothing out of the ordinary there.

Huh?  Why are you looking at guys like that when you are on beach road? :whistling: :cheesy:

Very difficult not to, especially when they're blocking the sun. 😇

That appears to be 100% opportunistic, better to steal the bag than feed his fat face.

 

These people are everywhere so be careful out there and look after your valuables.

People don't leave your passport and cash etc in a backpack. I keep my pp in my front pocket.

might want to clean the camera lense, close proximity but cannot even make out a face

Cameras are also always placed too high indoors. They should be just above eye level. Outdoors they need to be higher.

I can't understand people risking it here, if you want to steal go to countries like Sweden or Norway where they have nice prisons.

Hang your bag on a chair in a common restaurant in a tourist area in a foreign country.  Kind of stupid eh?

Nah, probably from some inconsequential English speaking commonwealth country on his way to an afternoon on his butt in a Tommy pub.

pacsafe are useless as they do not ship to Thailand. I only use true American companies who are universal shippers.

Agree pacsafe are good but try LocTote as well.

Pacsafe is an Australian owned business. 


They have a Pacsafe Thailand Facebook page and there is an agent here so you can buy online in Thailand.   Amazing what you can find if you use Google.

Loctote have one style of bag that frankly looks pretty basic, whereas Pacsafe have an entire range of products for different uses  (not sure that they are all available here In Thailand though).

Singapore tourists should have known better. I had to replace all personal documents in my home country as a result of an in home theft. I would hate to have to do this in a foreign country. 

But all the same, sad for the tourists that they must go through this because of that scumbag.

I can only imagine the high pitched screams on this Forum if the guy had a brown skin and arabic looks ... But no, he looks like your regular bar cowboy, the average sugar daddy retired expat with a beer paunch that sits on his high stool for hours sharing the same Thai-bashing stories night after night with his bar friends ... my oh my, if would-be victims become full blown bandits, what is this world coming to ... :shock1:
