A Very Sad Expat Story in Kampot - BUT with Happy Ending

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 cannot feel sorry for anyone who gives there money to a khmer,might as well burn it.
The first thing I do when I get my salary is give it ALL to a Cambodian. She then doles it out to me so I spend it responsibly. I was an economic wreck before I came to this country, now I'm on my feet because of a Cambodian.

I'm not too optimistic. How can you steal a land title from someone not entitled to have a land title?

Yes, if the Nominee system is illegal, Tom would be doing well to even get a percentage of his money back.
The motivation to achieve a win for Tom could be to perpetuate the Nominee system as its a good earner for agents and lawyers.

I don't know this couple at all
But, call me a sentimental old fart, I love this photo and would welcome them into my home any day of the week.
I hope the roulette wheel of justice lands that little white ball of good fortune - smack bang on their number today.

They aren't a couple, and I don't know either one, except I know the lady sells property..

She has a rival estate agency to the one that allegedly fleeced the Alaskan dude, so it behooves her to be seen to be his savior, particularly to expat community.

Positive publicity basically.

I'm such a sentimental old fart that i reckon they should get married anyway.
They are both so "folksy" that it would work for sure.
