Stupid me! I lent a lot of money to a Thai woman.

Looked up Tilleke and Gibbons. They would probably fall down laughing at my measly (not to me) amount of a few hundred thousand B.

Do you have a loan agreement on paper with her? Did she offer any collateral? Do you have any text messages about the loan? Where is she living?

Don’t lend money to Thais here, you give. It’s a gift from a foreigner. It’s just the way it is here for most, not all.


If you want to lend money for a business, then get an attorney to put your name on the business, 49% before you give.

Thais usually use reputation and public shaming on social media to retrieve their funds, then retract the comments when paid. It works, I’ve seen it many times. Though sorry, this method will not work for foreigners.

Even in a Western country it would be your word against hers, and she is a women and you are but a man.
