I think my potential housesitter is a pedo

Post by giblet » Sat Jul 19, 2014 9:12 pm

I recently signed up with a housesitting organization to find someone to take care of the ducks and geese while we are away. One of their members emailed me and said her friend wanted to house-sit for me, and he would be a good choice because he lives close by.

He's an American living in Pattaya who visits Cambodia occasionally. Some Internet research turns up the fact that he's served time for fraud and possession of child pornography. Obviously I'm not going to hire him as a housesitter, but I am not sure what else I should do, if anything. Any suggestions?

i'd contact the housesitting company and pass on the info for sure. and probably switch to a service that does background checks.

He's not a member, one of their members emailed me and recommended him. So the housesitting place isn't really involved.

Maybe you could tell the member directly that they recommended a pedophile to you.

I doubt they will continue to recommend them if they are aware of it, or if they know others are aware of it.

And maybe they are interested in duck-sitting because they would rather not officially check into a hotel/guesthouse and give them all their information.

Maybe even contact the US/American Embassy in Thailand to make sure he's not a fugitive, etc.

And because a hotel might report you if you bring someone underage into you room. :(

If he is not on the run/wanted for anything and you have no knowledge of him doing anything illegal, your options are limited. Obviosly dont hire hum. Definitely tell your friend/member about it. You may consider warning others that you hear are considering employing him or associating with him. But I am not sure what else you could or should do.
