I was scammed at a foot reflexology spot in Koh Chang. My friend and I went into the place, had our foot massages, which were horrible by the way and when it was time to pay my wallet was missing.
At first, I thought I was crazy thinking maybe I left it in the hotel or something. Then I realized my bag was moved to the floor next to my chair when I came in by the girl that gave me my massage.
I was yelling and screaming at them and I even went in their back room to find the girl who was nowhere to be found. I spoke to the manager and he said that he was confident she didn’t take it. I’m sure they were all in on it.
They got away with over 10,000 baht and my credit cards and drivers liscense. I was devastated. Always keep your bag close to you!
Lastly, be careful in your hotel rooms. I had a friend that was in Phuket sleeping in her room and when she woke up all of their purses and passports were missing.
They couldn’t figure out how the person got in without them hearing them. I’m pretty sure they were drugged. I heard they sometimes use a spray that puts you to sleep. What a nightmare.
