When a Turkish guy lost approximately 100,000 baht to a Thai woman he met on a dating app, he sought aid from the police at Mueang Pattaya Police Station.
The heist took place at a Pattaya hotel Friday night, November 19, according to the victim, Ruhan Topal, who is 50 years old. Through a dating app, he had a conversation with a Thai woman who said she was from Phuket province. Ruhan said he chose to ask her to meet him in Pattaya after three days of conversing.
Ruhan claims that he and the woman had a night out on the town in Pattaya, where they hit the clubs and had a few drinks before calling it a night in his hotel room. He went for a shower and returned to discover the Thai woman had slipped away.
This was not a woman who departed without a gift. Along with his iPhone 14 Pro—worth 35,000 baht—and $2,100 (or 74,000 baht) in cash, she made off with them.
Police promised to review footage from the hotel’s surveillance system in an effort to apprehend the burglar. After the incident, they think the woman stayed in the Pattaya region, suggesting she was a local.
There have been more regrettable incidents. On rare occasions, the shadowy side of online dating has been revealed.
A dating app date was the catalyst for a reported crime two weeks ago.
The identity of the man, Tienming Ho, who sexually attacked an American woman, remains unknown.
According to the victim, she had arranged to meet the man in person at her Bangkok apartment after meeting him on a dating app. Although they had previously agreed not to engage in sexual relations, the suspect nevertheless sexually assaulted her against her choice.
Last week, another guy from Thailand lost his motorbike to a woman he met on a dating app, supposedly as a result of an online dating fraud.
According to the victim, he gave the woman a chance despite the fact that she didn’t resemble her profile image. The following morning, he discovered that she had vanished with his motorcycle.
