go into a hostess bar on street 104,130,136.
get drunk
take a girl home
get laid
wake up with headache but happy :beer3:
than go to any travel agent and get 30 day extension.

Have you already arrived? If not get the e-ordinary visa on arrival for $35 which will allow you to get a 6 month extension

Step 2: Apply for a 6 month EG visa at a travel agency in Cambodia.
The application costs $160 and takes about 5 days to process.

You simply need to provide your passport, the fee, and a very simple letter that says:

“I [name], passport # [xxxxxxxx], would like to stay in Cambodia 6 months to look for work.”

This is the best information I've found that is supposed to work fine.

I'm not sure if a 12 month can be got

While this may technically be true, upon requesting an EG EOS, some agents will have a pro forma statement as described by Judgedredd.

So don't worry if they ask you for some information to complete the statement. The agents are just being proactive and trying to avoid any potential rejections by the capricious minions at immigration.
