Tourists warned of Thailand airport scam.

The BBC is running this news report and its been the most read for a few days now.

Got to do with tourists getting accused of stealing in the Duty Free Area, ending up getting arrested, going to court and having to make payoffs.

aiyah...old tricks lah! Just DONT shop in BKK duty free lah.

Anyway, a sister-in-law used to work in klia duty free..many arabs including the purdah'd ladies were caught shop-lifting perfumes, chocs, ciggy etctec...BUT the authorities in its brilliance, NEVER persecute these arab thieves...some were asked to pay for the lifted stuff, others were let off with a warning. (probably to 'protect' the arab tourist bizzz lah)

Betcha the bkk airport also make bundles from the genuine thieving tourists! :D

Cest la vie...

Yang Boycott airport shoppin' latotupai :D
