One Client in Serious Visa Trouble

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.

Agreed. A bit harsh in some respects.

No one likes to see a business employing locals fail but I would have thought he was aware of his visa conditions and done something about it prior to the expiry date.
I don't see a solution other than paying up and putting a case to immigration. Other than finding a good manager until he gets it sorted I have nothing to add. =@
Let me get this straight: the OP is supporting a businessman who has zero idea - or possibly is trying his luck - regarding local immigration rules. He has the dosh to start a business, but not to pay normal fees? And his angle on this is that if he fails, locals lose jobs? Give us a break. This kind of guy doesn't give a poop about locals, He's dodging laws even indigent TEFLers on $9/hour have to follow because he's trying to save money, right?

How about the locals who lose out because he doesn't pay fees which go into state coffers?

Zero sympathy.

I think I was quite clear that I was paraphrasing the OP.

I quoted you, which is what you said.

My comments/criticism are directed at the OP, not you. Maybe I should have written ' what his angle is', apologies.

Will try and edit.Done.

Where does Jack find these "clients" and why do they hire him to solve immigration problems after already paying exorbitant fees to other "fixers" to solve their immigration problems? And why doesn't Jack just say "I have no way to fix your immigration problems so I won't take your money like the other fixer did"?

The guy overstayed for three months and could have paid $1800 directly to immigration and instead said, "No, let me hire a series of fixers for $4,000 and counting to solve this"?

Sounds like what Neddy did with his landlord dispute.

Something messy like this can only be fixed by a very high level contact. If neither he nor you has that, then it looks pretty grim.
