A Silom jewelry designer went to Yannawa police early this morning to report an incident that happened as he was driving his Mazda 2 along Charoen Krung Soi 63.

Motorist says woman jumped in front of his car then demanded 100 baht | News by Samui TimesNaruphon Saenbunreuang, 34, said he was following a song thaew (baht bus) that stopped to let passengers get off. At that moment a woman aged somewhere between 30 and 50 jumped off the vehicle and fell in front of his car.

She pretended that she had been hit and when she had got an audience she rapped on his window demanding 100 baht. She threw a coin damaging the bonnet of his car.

He refused to get out saying that he had a dash cam and there was no way that he had hit her. He drove off as he was in a rush to pick up his wife and child at a hospital.

The police agreed there was no collision when he went to make the report and they saw the clip.

Now they have gone to the area to find out what the woman was up to.

No charges or claims have yet been made.

Thaivisa notes that people making false claims of being hit in accidents have been rife in places like China and now the con is creeping in to Thailand.
