Used my outside voice with a fake PassApp driver, and Scammer Steve

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

Better just pay the extra fee of 3 USD rather than risk losing face, them tuk tuks make jack shit anyway they just want a few extra buck for beers or some rice and fish.


Got to remember stoppy chops your from OZ where you can make this guys daily wage in 30 minutes doing unskilled menial labour.
Extra fee of $4.50. Oh, but if a guy is ripping you off to buy beer, give him whatever he wants.

My apologies, I didn't realise you were there at the time and clearly know about the incident much more than I. I'm impressed at your level of knowledge, given your stated absence of knowledge - I yield to your superiority.
I don't have to be there to know that your claims that there are drivers in counterfeit PassApp tuk tuks driving around and being aided by real PassApp drivers on where to poach PassApp fares suggests a Ned Kelly-level of paranoia.

"Them tuktuks" make more cash than I do, although I work harder, and longer hours, and share more of my earned cash with young Cambodians than I keep so that they'll have a living wage and not have to resort to other means of income generation. I have no earnings coming from Australia. That's not a whine, that's just a statement of fact - and it's my choice.

Expats who just pay the extra $3 ($5 in this case) are the reason these guys are overcharging, and your understanding of "face" in this context is not quite correct.

Where was the assumption that I or anyone else in the discussion don't treat Cambodians as human beings?

While I always enjoy a bit of back-and-forth with you I suggest in this instance you try a laxative, as you seem to be full of shit.

I spoke about one specific driver (who you don't know, presumably) driving a fake PassApp tuktuk (which you admit you know nothing about) who scammed two of my tenants, and when asked by me to show his PassApp ID admitted he doesn't have it as he isn't actually a PassApp driver. I speculated that this one specific driver might have a mate who flicked him the details of a fare for him to poach. If, to your mind, that sounds like Ned's paranoia, I can live with it.

Now, for your other problem I suggest products with cilium husks or similar.

That's a very different story from what you said in the OP. In the OP you just said he was reluctant to show the ID, you said nothing about him admitting he's not a PassApp driver, and in fact, your conclusion that he wasn't a PassApp driver was based only on the real driver calling them.

I wasn't there, and I don't know what the guy said to you, but I do know you've changed your story here to support your fake PassApp conspiracy theory, which makes your version of the facts less credible.

Just say "A PassApp driver tried to rip them off by charging them off the book and well over the odds." That's easy.

I'm not sure how I'll sleep tonight knowing you now find me less credible. It's such a relief that there aren't other more pressing needs in my day, so I can give focus to your belief (or otherwise) in me.

Christ this forum really does have some bored people. The lengths of argument some people will go to is outstanding! I applaud all the effort lol.

GJ stroppy for helping the people out.

I've had a pass app driver take me to the wrong location then try and charge 7100 for a 4100 fare and had the cheek to ask for 8000.

Nearly suplexed him through the internet
