Two German tourists were robbed of 550 Euros taken from their bags on a Bangkok to Chiang Mai bus on Wednesday.
The tourists had bought the tickets cheap at Khao Sarn Road. Police said they had travelled on an unregistered service that was set up to rip them off, reported Thairath.
The tourists – Jurgen Lotter 26, and girlfriend Jemin Sippel, 26, bought their tickets on Tuesday.
They thought they would be taken to the bus station in Chiang Mai but were dumped at a petrol station in Saraphi instead. They noticed they had lost money from two bags but the driver an staff were not interested in their plight.
They reported to torist police who took them to the regular cops. The tourists remembered two young people getting on and sitting at the back of the bus.
Police said that the service was clearly operating a con whereby the people who got on went through the tourists’ bags.
They said this has happened many times in the past but the practice had gone quiet recently.
They are studying CCTV and attempting to track down the people responsible.
