Quite sure there's more to it than what is being reported.
Nobody has mentioned the odd route she chose: first to Istanbul and then to Bangkok, while there are numerous direct flights between Nairobi and Bangkok and the cheaper non-direct are via Doha. So why via Istanbul which is both a longer flight duration and more expensive than via Doha. Could that have been the red flag in Bangkok?

Another odd thing: "When Renee Ezra woke up on the morning of October 7 to the nudging impulse to travel, she easily chose Cambodia as her destination". Really? You wake up and think: OK, Cambodia it is, let's go and let's go right now!

Plus of course the amount of Kenyan currency in her purse. What was she going to do with that in Cambodia?

Not in my case. The Thai Immigration assholes just decided to extort 2000 baht out of me.
You could be next.

That's pretty much what I did. I think it was 6 days before departure that I arranged my flight. Or as No Joke would have said: stopped being a bitch, quit my lame ass job and moved to Cambodia.
