Do not post a photograph of your friend.
That is none of their f***ing business.
eh what, it's public, it's everyone's business
up to the OP what else to reveal of course
as designed, perhaps
Given the OP topic, you both come across as weirdos.
If the OP is a troll then so be it, but if thats what you think then say it out loud.

You can open a hotel safe with a banana.

So I will have to go to BIDC bank soon to try to get my card back. Is that a difficult process?
Not difficult at all... just pay a little extra to expedite the process.

Enjoy your trip. :D
You could be next.

Newer hotel safes are not that easy to open. However, always assume that a lot of hotel staff have the master code.

She says card never came out? Her brother "helped" him take money first time so had pin?

Visiting a hostess bar, (no respectable khmer girls would do this UNLESS she had worked in one before), with him, ( expect her to ring the bell a few times)
staying in a mongers hotel in the thick of things
Sleeping with him the first time they meet
Traveling ONLY with her to some remote village where who knows what can/might happen.

Its all about trust, which takes time to build.

I wish him luck, but am not optimistic about the outcome

Best of luck, but this has typical bargirl written all over it. Especially the ATM part. I hope the OP reaches out to someone here if he needs assistance

Surely OP would know the format of the ATM keypad, cover his hand and no need to divulge the PIN..

Hey man blind people are not stupid or helpless. They are very capable of handling money and paying for things. They train themselves to know where their money is and in what denominations. A blind person will know at all times exactly how much money he has on him and in what denominations and in what order those bills are located in his wallet. He would also know the sound of an ATM card being ejected from a machine.

I guess if she stays in his room she could switch up the bills in his wallet but he'd figure that out pretty fast when he goes to pay for something in a shop and they tell him the denomination is different.

Also he said she wasn't staying with him anyway because of an expired ID, which could be just an excuse for her not to sleep with him.

Many newcomers are not aware of the scams in Cambodia. Many fall for them.
