An Australian hotelier in Pattaya consulted police and called in the media after losing business due to what he termed as malicious posts of a guest about his stay.
This caused a lot of people to cancel their bookings.
Manager said that they met Alexander Katz,45, an executive of Eastern Star Company Ltd, and his manageress Suphaporn Sae-ung, 44, at the five story 17 room hotel on Pattaya Third Road.
The guest who Mr Katz said was really a Brazilian aged about 35-40 complained about having to wait for hours when in reality it was just minutes.
The police advised them to gather evidence and make a report to press charges of malicious posting.
The hotel is listed online as offering accommodation in the 500 -1,200 baht range.
