Scammer Steve 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.

I didn't realize this guy is so prolific. With his talents you'd think he'd pick up work easily - obviously doesn't want it.

He makes the rounds from PP to Siem Reap to BB to Sihanoukville. I'm pretty sure he's a Khmer/American deportee with a hard drug problem.

If he tries it on again I'll ask if he'll tell his story in exchange for a meal.

I wonder which story he'll tell you.

He's infamous. I meet him about a year ago in PP. But he was infamous before that.

He tried to scam me twice and I'm thing wtf?! Ok I guess of all the people you try to scam you can't remember them all.

I spotted him most recently about 3 weeks ago at the Fish restaurant on riverside next to night market.

A funny thing is I didn't see him for awhile but coming back from the beach. He was hitching a ride on the tailgate of a Khmer family car.

I'm pretty sure Cambod has some photos of him or a video or something in his personal collection. I recall him filming him once... unless I'm imagining things.

I really don't get some the so called interest and respect some of you guys give this clown. He is the essence of a bottom feeder -- preying on the good will of others.

There is not enough kindness is the world as it is and this guy helps make people more suspicious and less kind.

$%#^ him, $#@% his story.

This dude has earned some seriously bad karma and I look forward to it catching up with him.

Have you met him, RD? The guy is almost worth a meal just on performance value alone.

Of course I met him. Read my previous post. I gave him 20 minutes when I was hanging out on Riverside with nothing better to do.

About as interesting as a hooker with a sick water buffalo story.

I have little respect for people who try to exploit the good will of others. Zero interest in his "story".
