I heard a rumor (OK, from Ned on FB) that Whitlow has very recently been arrested for something unrelated. Anyone else heard that?

I saw your comment and his reply on his FB post. Whitlow is such a top bloke that I'm not surprised by that news one bit. It seems this landlord and Whitlow are both having a tough time at the moment while Ned gets to watch events unfold from the comfort of his mom's house in Minnesota. ;-)

Next time you pick a side in something that is most definitely not your business...
I find it's actually quite possible to comment from the peanut gallery without taking any side at all, especially when some idiot publishes that he's an idiot, but expects to be respected for it.

I've been told that James Whitlow (now going by the name 'Jay') is in Siem Reap and getting a reputation all over again for scamming people.

Sounds like he's got one British dude who he's been leading on for a while and has managed to get over $1,000 from him, while he borrows more then pays back a bit. Dude sounds a bit naive to be falling for it.

And the guy who I talked to said he gave him $100 to get a gram of coke, which he never came back with. He found him a few days later and hounded him for the hundred dollars back, which he didn't have, of course. Finally, after several hours he went with Jay Whitlow to a pawn shop to pawn his phone for $70, which he ended up giving him.

Sounds like a lot of work for $30.
