Getting Scammed after 12 years living in Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

You knew he was dealing and protected him. You didn t settle your debt to him and let him hang. He got the upper hand and returned the favor. My advice would be don t protect drug dealers in the future, Be careful who's hands you put your balls in. Start fresh and smarter somewhere new ie far away and Don t speak of it again

Most people seem to be focused on what the op did wrong in the past. Nobody can change the past. The op wants suggestions as to what is best to do in the future.

None of us know all of the details of what has happened. If we did, we may have different ideas.

You definitely need to completely and permanently disassociate from your business partner. I would leave the country fairly quickly. Just see if you can sell a few items to recoup a little of your money, if that is possible without stirring up a hornets nest.

Apparently not.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

There are no real facts to go on - just a highly dubious story full of holes.

But I agree your plan for him. Go away. Get your shit together. Formulate a plan and then......

Someone fabricated a story to get you arrested and/or possibly paid the police to bring charges against you.

A couple of weeks ago someone asked 'how is it' in Cambodia, I said Khmer people can't be trusted, and you run the risks of having false charges brought against you.

All the kool-aid drinkers called me out, and said I was 'butt hurt'

As you were....​

The majority of the locals have been scammed since birth, just read the news.
Even a perfect behaviour cannot protect you from beiing shat over from time to time.

The kind of place where it's not an acceptable option to mix with stupid or nasty people, if you want to last.

I would have punched the fucker and called the cops myself after seiing the pics.

I still don't know what I am being charged with
You allowed your premises to be used for the supply of illegal narcotics. That's pretty clear. You might also be changed with supply yourself. You sound like a total idiot who is in denial about your own complicity in this, but it seems like the local law enforcement officials are more clued in. Get the hell out of Dodge and lick your wounds elsewhere, you have no future here outside of an overcrowded cell.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
