deposit for work to be carried out
« on: February 18, 2018, 12:10:32 PM »

I am trying to obtain the home address of a Mr Somsak Guanngooleuam the contact number I have been given is 098.1264992 he resides in the Johar region of Korat and purports to be a painter and decorator. He contacted us through a painter and decorator that we used before in the Sung Neon area and we met him in a condo we purchased at Dream Park Condos he gave us an estimate of 23,000. baht to wallpaper and supply blinds for the condo on us accepting the estimate he asked for a deposite and we gave him an initial sum of 8,000baht leaving a balance of 15,000 baht to be paid on completion of the job. Briefly he never turned up to carry out the work on the agreed time and date and despite police calls to him never attended the police station as agreed, the police have told us that this is a civil matter and we need to proceed with any action through the courts. I need this persons home address to carry out any court action as he has obviously pocketed our 8,000 baht and will not carry out any work or keep any appointments. Merwalk.

Wait a week or two.  Then have someone call him (a Thai) and inquire about having work done.  Have your Thai arrange to meet him somewhere.  I think you can figure out the rest.

Once again thank you for your reply, However I only want to obtain the address of Mr Somsak Guanngooleuam to enable me to take relevant action through the courts. Mr Guanngooleuam has taken a deposit of 8,000.baht from me has not carried out any work and refuses to answer phone calls or even attend a meeting arranged by the Korat Police the number I have for Mr Guanngooleuam is 098.1264992.  Merwalk.

After a  fourth visit to yet another police station I have realised that any help from the police is not going to happen, I have discovered however that Mr Somsak Guanngoleuam has pulled this scam on at least two other occasions and been reported to the police. On contacting a solicitor who was very helpful explaining that for him to pursue this through the court on my behalf would cost more than the 8,000baht deposit stolen and though we would win the court , we would then have to chase him for payment. Mr Somsak Guanngooleuam of 098.1264992. is believed to be in the Rayong area at the moment after an earlier period in Bangkok so should a Decorator give you an estimate for work to be carried out make sure it is not Mr Somsak  Merwalk.
