Kiwi Man Mugged and Robbed in Cambodia, Needs Help

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.

The point being is that for all his sins and problems and past he seems like a decent good hearted fellow in need of methadone which is available here now, also, he was targeted at the airport most likely got into a special tuk tuk that took that famous "wrong turn" down the alley and was immediately jumped by two thieves and miraculously he was saved by another thief who appeared on the scene to "help" then this poor Kiwi, his name is Paul btw got his money sent in and it was stolen from him while he slept by the infamous "friend" that appeared on the scene to help at the first robbery. The infamous friend that helped him out is now off the streets as of this writing and with his record, will likely be deported. If you come into KOW weak and expect to survive with your dole from your country its not likely you will make it, unfortunately for Paul he never had an ounce of luck since his arrival. He was prey for the wicked and the wicked are numerous and hungry for prey. I cannot help him anymore.
Its tough enough for us here.

I have mercy - sure - but dun bring the expats into disrepute.

There are many on here who strive hard against all the odds - dun be a libtard.

Send Paul home - its beyond his capabilities and his life is at stake

Every one of these brings us down in the eyes of our Khmer hosts.
Owww Mish, don't look at it that way.
The bloke is doing us all a big favour.

We don't have to swagger around pretending we are god-kings any more.
That was a hard act to relentlessly maintain for those few short years before they woke up to the fact that we were just normal humans after all.

2 days!
Ok spill the beans..

I'm guessing not locked up - you woulda been partying in the clink for sure.
Two day meditation retreat. Good idea but probably not.
Boot camp? Maybe??... Nuh.
Gardening? Can't quite see it.
Not twitching - you would have got your exotic species mixed up and gone bird watching instead.

Are you saying he was a druggie with little money who came to Cambodia only to be 'targeted' by bad tuk tuk guys at the airport and subsequently robbed? Are you saying there was no connection between him being a druggie and getting targeted? Is that what you mean when you he say he didn't have an ounce of luck since his arrival coz he was preyed on by the wicked?

So he was robbed at the airport and another guy showed up to pretend to be his friend until the Kiwi had more money sent in, which was robbed again. And he just so happens to be a heroin addict trying to take a nice peaceful holiday in Cambodia. If they did not rob him he had budgeted out the perfect amount to be able to get his drugs and enjoy his holiday until his return flight. What horrible luck.

I'm not buying any of this shit. In my home city there are thousands of junkies wandering around making a nuisance of themselves. They use a disproportionate amount a lot of resources from the state, whether in benefits or medical care. They constantly approach you and interrupt when you're trying to have a drink and conversation with friends. They always have some BS story about how they are just down on their luck and need a cup of tea or a hostel for the night. I have no time for them. Chances are this guy put himself in danger by trying to score some smack as soon as he got here.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I can believe it.
End stage heroin addiction causes exactly this kind of bad luck.

How is is cranial situation? Still have 70-80% IQ?
(opioids do not cause brain damage, generally - but the substitution drugs and the lifestyle do, especially after many years)

The good news is; the psychology, the health, and the living situation can be repaired surprisingly well. Unlike with meth. And the luck can turn right around too..
IF, he gets the F*** back home before we find him dead.
