Thanks for the update posh, hopefully i'll see him for a few stories when i return. Geordie congratulations on the 'old' wife!

Confused? Well I certainly am!

I heard Surin was bad for old farangs moaning and bitching about each other, I hope my beloved Korat has't gone down that same road.

Don't forget the pancakes!

Yeah, closed due to the fact that he ripped off almost everyone he could delude or get his hands on, then ran out of money, a slippery character for sure. Just ask the Scotsman about the missing million baht (or 750,000 depending on who you talk to) to sell beer Lao here or the guys that invested in the "Cheese making business" (ironic in a way that title is). The Scotsman was just the last in a very long line and there are many that would "Like to have a word." However, like all the best con-men everywhere he picked his targets carefully and befriended them all, only to do a Houdini when the time was right, many learnt lessons from that.

Goes to show that the old saying "Only spend here what you can afford to throw up into the air in the street and walk away from" is very true. The Scotsman ended up teaching English to make ends meet after that. I felt sorry for him but we are all architects of our own situation, he was old enough to have known better than to put that much trust in someone you met in Thailand, especially when it is regarding money. Money has a nasty habit of disappearing here in a puff of smoke, beware all, the story I told above is legendy here, as most will be aware.

Sneaky Arab! But a sucker born every minute, especially here, greed got the better of them all. 
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

That's the fellow! I was propositioned with a unique one off chance to double my money back in 2003. This 'venture' involved setting up a swimming pool business, anyone else hear this one? We were gonna "corner the market installing pools for all the farangs heading into Isaan". From the sounds of it I was lucky to decline that fine offer, others weren't so lucky.
But I have to agree with you Dude, YOU CAN'T CHEAT AN HONEST MAN. They want something for nothing but get nothing for something.
So were you guys patrons of the crafty ones restaurant?

Just so you know the crafty Arab has been spotted here in Korat a couple of times over the last couple of months. Last sighting was at the bar in the mall so he is not even being discreet about it either.

WASNT THERE ONE HULLABALOO ABOUT THAT AT THE TIME ?
If I remember correctly wasnt there supposed to be some super sleuth of a Detective who stalked him and took photos only to lose him at the last minute..was it Lawman ? cant remember for sure.   But he got away with daylight robbery.
