Tourist police said last night the two Australian tourists, seen in photos that went viral crying desperately to a Bangkok woman about getting robbed, were actually fraudsters.
In a Facebook post that circulated across the web and local media yesterday, the couple, identified by police as Liam Endersby and Emma Bunner, sought help from a Thai woman at a car shop near Bangkok Bus Terminal in Taling Chan district yesterday and said they had been robbed.
“A couple came to sit in front of my shop and cried until my employees came to get me. They had been robbed. I wanted to contact the tourist police for them but they insisted they wanted to go the Australian Embassy,” Facebook user Maeji Kamolrat Ayla wrote. At the end, the tourists got away with some cash and a free taxi ride.
“I gave them snacks and water until a taxi driver came to my shop. So he volunteered to take them to the embassy. I gave them some money. I wished them good luck,” she added.
