to Chiang Mai
I would like to thank the reader who took so much trouble
to try and get the traffic light problem on both ends of the Nawarat Bridge
That was what you might call over and above the call of
duty, there are not many people who would do all that to help their fellow
motorists and motorcyclists. Well done and thanks again, let’s hope
something will be done soon.
I would contribute to new light globes if that’s all it
Defrauded writes back
I am ‘Mr. Defrauded’ and I intentionally invited the
police to respond directly to the Chiang Mai Mail, not me, thinking it more
likely to elicit a reply. I respectfully thank the police for replying. I
fully accept that the recovery of money, being debt, loans, etc, is a civil
However, the action of obtaining that money by
intentional lies and deceit is in any other country ‘intent to defraud’ and
‘obtaining monies by deceit’ and a criminal offence under the jurisdiction
of the police and criminal courts. I am surprised if this is not the case in
Thailand. Surely, forged documents or money are all in the same family of
crimes. Such stories of fraud get retold and undermine the confidence of
foreigners to make genuine investments here to the benefit of Thai nationals
at all levels.

These plastic Vuvuzelas are ruining the World Cup games
for just about everyone including the players. FIFA’s Sepp Blatter and Rich
Mkhonda are fiercely defending these plastic abominations on the grounds
that they are a part of the African Culture and everyone should embrace and
respect them. I hope they feel same way when Australia hosts the Tournament
. i can’t wait to see them “embracing” the Australian culture when the
Aussie fans are blasting away on six foot long plastic “Didgeridoos”.Hey
stop complaining, it’s the Culture!
