A Very Sad Expat Story in Kampot
Many Kampotians will know the Alaska Gentleman who built his dream boathouse on the small river off the Kep road . He is a retired fisherman with a lifetime of fulfillment from fishing travelling & very good DIY handyman . & . He trusted the local Real estate agent & bought many plots of land on the small river & set about building his dream house o er the last 4 years .He made very good friends with the local Muslim fishing community in the village employing many of the locals & helping out as requested . Unfortunately the local agent sold him land without real title & despite being friendly turned out to be a calculate d fraudster ... More unfortunately he is a Cambodian well established agent that still operates today . The shock of the crime could easily kill off an aged gentle trusting man ...so this agent may still have more than a fraudulent crime against his name . It's also a crime against the good trustful citizens of Alaska & Kampot because the very bad crime will be a warning to all expats & may receive wider publicity in newspapers & television internationally ... especially as this social media post is likely to go viral.... Maybe truth will be the nail in the coffin of this unscrupulous Real Estate Agent ....he knows who he is ....& So does everyone in Kampot ....maybe soon everyone in Cambodia & the world .... Let's hope for a happy ending to this very very sad story !

Stuff like this is maddening. Take it to the highest ie: The King. Let's get laws created to protect good Expats with good Intentions.
Feel sorry for the old guy, but if you give all your money to a third party with no contract or agreement, what can you possibly expect?
I understand that the defamation laws make this difficult, but if no one outs this guy, then it will be business as usual for him and more victims to follow. Or perhaps if there is enough social media outrage, the authorities will take note.
Really people still need warning about investing anywhere in SEA ?! Or they will just never learn ?
Anyway I hope that the guy will find a solution or some help.

Own justice in dark street late a night is often the solution here...
