  1. Don, according to the news the man was threatened and forced to hand over to the bar’s owner the credit card and password, with which they then withdrew cash from his credit card account.

  2. If its really a credit card, then he has the right to challenge the charges and then they are forced to do a charge back to him while the credit institution investigates… no news here, move on !

  3. Money he will never get back.There is no way the Thai police will help a farang.The barowner might pay 10-20% to the police and the case gets closed. T I T
