Tricky Thailand Girls, what exactly are they, how do you know one and what can you do about it if you think you might be caught with one?
Well you know I have spent a lot of time in Thailand over the last few years and I have come to understand a lot about the so called Thai girl scams. The truth is the actual scams are not that common, no more so than Russian bride scams, Nigerian scams or anything of that nature. What is more common is out and out lying by Thai girls to western men and so if you think you may have a situation on your hands with a Thai girl that you are not sure you can trust then this article may be a good read for you.
The problem is that many of the western men who go to Thailand in search of a beautiful Thai girlfriend or wife go looking in all the wrong places. They also become completely hypnotized by the whole Thai look and sweet exterior nature of Thai girls and even when they are blatantly being lied to many men simply don't want to believe it's true. It's a hard pill to swallow and its quite understandable in some ways because where else can you find a petite, pretty young girl half your age who talks and smiles sweetly to you and will sleep with you for the price of a happy meal?
I'm sorry if that sounds harsh and a little crass but the truth is the truth and I didn't set out to write this article only to gloss over the realities because really what would be the point?
So what do these tricky Thailand girls get up to then?
Well in a nutshell many of these girls will simply lie to you to get you to give them money on a regular basis. It's a kind of twist really on the oldest game in town. You meet the girl, you sleep with her a few times and fall head over heels in love or lust, one of the two. She promises to not see any other men and you believe her, why? because you want to!. You send her money every month and plan for a future together.
Meanwhile she is doing the same thing with another man from another country or maybe more than one other man. She will insist she is not and she has given all that up and you are the only one for her and you will be so besotted with her you actually try to beleive her. You start believing you can change her life and be her knight in shining armor and she will let you go on believing that as long as you are sending her money.
This is the harsh reality I'm afraid
The fact is when you spend any amount of time in Thailand and get to know real Thai people you will learn that Thai men will not look twice at these girls, certainly not for any kind of serious relationship anyway. Basically you are in a relationship with a type of prostitute, it's just that they seem different to what you know in your own country. For some reason the look of many of these girls is very attractive to western men and so they are easily caught in the venus fly trap so to speak.
What is important to understand for western men is this industry is not organised so much like it is in the West. Many of these girls work independently and there are many levels of it and this can make it very difficult to spot sometimes because some of these girls can actually act and appear quite normal. This is why they are labelled as Thai girl scams.
I don't know if you feel shocked by this. Maybe you are reading this and wondering now if your Thai girlfriend is really just with you for money, not sure if you can trust her or not. Or maybe you know what she used to do and now you hope she will give up her old ways all for you and the chance of a new life.
Whatever the case I suggest if you have a Thai girlfriend and you are not sure if she is genuine or not then you can try getting some Thai Girlfriend advice from the various websites that discuss these issues before you get too involved and it is too late.

Trading off the credulity of the customer in what is essentially a transactional relationship is not really a scam. If you go looking for a wife in a bordello, then buyer beware.

I was looking for help with a Visa for my neice to come to the US to be our Nanny, and tried to get scammed by this scamming Thai lady with many names including Diane Sittimilak, she appears to be running this scam from Saint Kitts with her Nigerian boyfriend who goes by the name of “Amri” and “Khalid”
They also are doing website scams, apartment rental scams, the works so beware!
Here is what I found posted all over the internet.
Yotsawadee Polwatana Sittimalik goes by many aliases:
DiAmr/Diane Visa & Immigration Services
Prior arrest record:
She is hiding out in Saint Kitts with her Nigerian boyfriend who goes by the name “Amri” real name Miebaka Dix-Fiberesima. They are both staying illegally without legal Visa’s running their Internet, Visa, Website scams. Their IP address is 184.108.40.206 so the local Authorities are very close to capturing and arresting them. Yotsawadee had her US Visa revoked due to fraudulent, false information on a VISA application for her and her Nigerian boyfriend so she has no more US Visa and was deported from the US and can’t return to Thailand for fear of being captured at Thailand Immigrations and turned over to Thailand DSI for arrest for crimes committed in Thailand and various other Asian Countries and the US.
Yotsawadee is a known Clinically Insane Psychopath who creates her scams to feed into her delusional disorder that she runs a multi-million dollar company that employs 100 people and has offices in Dallas TX, New York, Miami, Bangkok Thailand all which us bogus or non existent addresses except one in Florida which is a ship and pack that forwards her mail to Saint Kitts:
3017 Johnson Street, Ste 1374, Hollywood, FL 33021
Do not do business with her, do not work for her, she is a Clinically Insane Psychopath with a delusional disorder. Everything that she types or speaks is 100% false lies and fantasy. Her first tip off that she is a scammer is she uses the excuse that her computer microphone is broken so her Nigerian boyfriend “Amri” can do the typing to work the scam.

OOOOh shame all you big strong macho men getting taken in by these petite little innocent girls ! If you are really that gullible you need to get out more! The girls you refer to are hookers, prostitutes....what ever else you want to call them, they use sex to earn good money! What they do with it is up to them and not for you to judge them or their families. Most men go with these often VERY young girls because they want CHEAP SEX with them. If those "men" are stupid enough to think that they are the first guy these girls have fallen for , then they deserve all they get taken for. The girls run a business and like many business men who visit them, they too can be unscrupulous. Who is trying to screw who??? It is also not unique to Thailand! If you chat to these girls on a respectable level they open up and tell you how life really is there !!! Very difficult! Its all well and good to say Thai men wont touch these girls but many girls have been abused in marriage by Thai men, had kids and abandoned, they will do whatever they can to support their kids, as the cheating dad has done a runner!! "Pretty Woman"was a movie albeit an excellent one.. Now grow up guys and act like men!

I have a few edits going on my last hub which didn't come through ?
but basically this so called gentle country was not fair on the place, because truly and deeply it is gentle but it is quickly falling in love with all of the negative parts of western society which I feel is a dangerous mix within a culture that who's generosity has been exploited, but this new wave of the have and have nots especially in the rural areas is the driving force to material gain through there relativity new gold rush ....Their Daughters.
Whilst the families and brothers of the girls back in the villages drink, gamble and squander the money sent back from the trade, the girls sell there bodies, soul and sanity.
And some of the stories about the treatment of the girls when they move overseas with their newly weds are horrific. The danger swings both ways.
Both east and west are to blame and things won't change now I think, but be aware that more guys get hurt than find happiness.

Well said mate,
This may not be true in every case, but from my experience ( Being married to a Thai girl for eight years)
I do know that your words ring true, I know many Thai girls in Asia and in the western world that came from this business and I don't know one that did not have money being sent from all corners of the globe before settling down, either with the highest bidder so to speak, or who ever promised the most.
They do not look on it as if they are doing something wrong, but for a culture where Thai's will not hug or touch each other through their customs and beliefs it amazes me how quickly all this is swept under the carpet when a fiscal stimulus is the motivation . For example I had to find money to pay in compensation because my drunk Thai father-in-law hugged another Thai lady at a party to stop her going to the police,
but it is expectable for his daughter to open her legs for money.
Just saying that this hypocrisy should be a huge warning to foreigners in this so called gentle country.
