Restaurant Owner Warns of Woman Traveling with Kids Trying to Pull an 'I'll Pay Later' Scam

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.

Restaurant Owner Warns of Woman Traveling with Kids Trying to Pull an 'I'll Pay Later' Scam

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

A report of a woman traveling around Cambodia with her kids and saying she wants to pay with her American Express card, which is rarely accepted, and then says she'll pay with cash after visiting an ATM, never to return.


This lady carries only AMEX and will order without checking acceptance.
I expect she is teaching her kids how to travel for free.
Said she would withdraw cash from ATM, there are more than 6 different banks within 400 meters of our restaurant, but has not returned within 24 hours.
Please share with owners of cafe’s, restaurants and hotels who do not accept AMEX.
No morals, and yet another entitlement yuppie.
I will delete this post if she returns and advise, I think unlikely.
