Via: Pattays One

Three Indian Tourists were involved in an “under-the-bed massage scam” early on Monday Morning which resulted in the theft of money by a Ladyboy hidden underneath a bed used during the massage scam.

The men were taken back to the room in Soi Sukhumvit 20 in Central Pattaya by women they met on Pattaya Beach on the promise they would be given a cheap but pleasurable massage.


The men arrived and undressed with the masseur making sure the clothes were left on the floor next to the bed. Unbeknown to the tourist, a Ladyboy was hiding underneath the bed and would steal any money found in the trouser pockets before the conclusion of the massage.

The same room was used three times on Monday Morning and each time the women would target an Indian National. After Police received complaints from the first two men, they located the apartment and were able to arrest three women and the Ladyboy, Khun Sutat aged 39, who is thought to be the main organizer of the scam.

Later on Monday Police took the three victims and arrestees back to the rented apartment to reconstruct the crime which is now under further investigation by Pattaya Police.


personal thought:

As SOON as I think I’ve heard of EVERYTHING; bam, there’s the ‘under-the-bed massage scam’ .

At around 02.00 AM as Tourist Police and Voluteers were servicing tourists at their mobile van at Walking Street, an Inidian tourist who has been identified as Mr. Srigiri Bhaskar Rao, age 52 along with his son, informed the Tourist Police that he needed help.

After questioning Mr. Srigiri Bhaskar Rao, it was known that he was tricked by a transexual or Ladyboy, who has working as a prostitute at Walking Street. He said that he was together with the transexual for two nights already, after he agreed to pay him for sex. He told the police that as he was taking a shower, his transexual partner stole his Tommy hand-watch, which was estimated to be 25,000 THB worth, as soon as he took him hand-watch, the Ladyboy fled.

As soon as the incident was reported, the Tourist Police comprehended the evidence and facts. The Tourist Police then sent out a patrol to find the alleged suspect. It didn’t take long until the Tourist Police found the suspect, the transexual was arrested at Walking Street, he was identified as 23 year-old Mr. Tusnai Hanthong. He was frisked by the Tourist Police and the victim’s Tommy hand-watch was indeed found.

After questioning Mr. Tusnai, the 23 year-old Ladyboy suspect, he confessed his crime. He claimed that as he was going back to get something in Mr. Srigiri’s hotel room, he saw that he was showering therefore, he committed the crime by stealing his expensive hand-watch, which proved costly for the thief. The suspect is now in Pattaya police custody and will be charged for his crimes.



Don’t know of course, but I’d be willing to bet a ‘stack of chapatis’; that before the shower,  the bozo was braging up how expensive the watch was.
