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.

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....​
Again you show yourself to be nothing but a bigot. What makes you think he was scammed? If a foreigner was arrested for long term drug dealing in your home country would you jump to the conclusion that they were "scammed"? Seriously, I don't get why some of you are over here. The only redeeming point is that I doubt you'll last much longer. Don't let the door slap your ass on the way out.

When I was in LA I tried to buy some coke from a guy on the corner and he kept my money and told me to fuck off. A friend of mine got overcharged in Seattle in a taxi. Americans can t be trusted.

You are not just butt hurt my friend.

Would we be talking about the resort that used to be next to The big Easy ?

I remember a long winded tale about a blind man and his dog called Monty. Since then I have been trying to develop a 'sniff-test'. It's only a prototype at this stage but this fails it.

So, OP, post some photos of any of your courts documents (delivered under armed guard) and further and better particulars of your dive centre, i.e. the name of it. Let's see if you have anything to back up your story.

If you are real you have been given some very sage advice by John Bingham. Take it.

If you are a fake, then stop wasting our time.

CEO always does a great job of avoiding the underlying problem and attack others who bring valid points. The OP shares his story and 90% of the people try and call him out, punch holes in the story, etc. All while avoiding the truth. My comments were 100% factual, if you want to keep on the rose colored glasses and continue drinking the cool-aid, have at it.

The truth is khmer people can't be trusted, if you haven't had any problems yet, good on you. But the truth cannot be changed.

This is not my home country, this is Cambodia.
"seriously why are you here?
Why don't you f*** off and continue speaking how about [Mod edit: No need to make personal, slanderous assumptions]. It sure makes you look better then talking with grown folks about grown up things.

The police gave you your out and you chose not to take it.
You could have taken your partner for a "final dive"

Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another. It may also mean prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against other people because they are of a different race or ethnicity.

"Khmer people can't be trusted", ' My comments were 100% factual" stupid barang, does it get hot wearing a white hood all day?

That statement didn't involve facts it was based on anecdotal evidence.

So if somebody has a problem, and they come on this forum for ideas as to what to do, they can be expected to be told they are stupid and it is their fault. Is that right?

Only a few people have offered suggestions as to what to do.

While I have no direct knowledge of this particular situation, some people are falsely accused of crimes. There is the example of the two Burmese accused of murder on death island.

Do you think the op will come back for further discussion, with so many personal attacks?

Do you think if you have a problem, you will get any support from people on this forum?
