The female Thai shopper who dropped 2,000 baht at a supermarket in Pattaya only to see an old westerner on CCTV pick it up and pocket it has told Thaivisa that she has got her money back.
The thief – dressed casually in shorts and sandals when caught on CCTV at the Friendship Supermarket earlier in the week – went to the store yesterday (Friday) and asked to meet with Pratumrat Maymun or Jeab, 32.
Jeab went to the store and met the old man who said he felt very sorry, apologized for his actions and returned the 2,000 baht he had picked up after putting his foot on the money at the checkout.
He didn’t “wai”, she said, but she has forgiven him.
He was a British man and was a tourist. He had been in Pattaya for the past 2 months.
Jeab is now satisfied that the case is over and has dropped her complaint with the Pattaya police.
“The man said he did not want the police to get involved,” Jeab told Thaivisa. The pair met without the police at the supermarket.
“I asked him about being shamed on social media but he didn’t respond. I think that he saw himself or people who know him saw him on the video.”
She said that this episode has not changed her opinion about Westerners adding that what he did was wrong but that everyone is different.
She has a Western boyfriend. The couple have known each other for two years.
Jeab thanked Thaivisa for their help in spreading the story and helping to get her money back in full.Facebook.
