Internet dating scams in Thailand

January 15, 2019 - Reading time: 2 minutes

Internet dating in Thailand is not the same as internet dating in developed Western countries. If you're trying to find a Thai girlfriend using a dating app or a website then you need to be very careful and here's why...

NGOs estimate there are between 200,000 and 300,000 active prostitutes in Thailand. If you've met a lady through internet in Thailand, there is a very high probability that she has been involved in the sex industry.

It's easy for a lady to claim that she has a university education. It's also easy for a lady to claim that she has a good job. Often they will.

Let's say you meet a Thai lady online, she tells you that she works at a coffee shop and has a bachelor's degree. Her internet profiles are filled with photos of her working and you have no reason to doubt her. You're safe right?

Actually, this woman does not work at a coffee shop at all. Her friend works at a coffee shop and she borrowed her friend's uniform to take photos for her social media. The lady actually works at a bar and sleeps with men in order to earn cash. A bar girl, dancer or escort would never admit to being one through internet dating.

If you met her through internet dating and she is lying to you then you have no way to find out the truth. We have discovered many victims of Thai internet dating scams through our investigations.

We have very often found that Thai women will lie about their lives when meeting foreigners through the internet. Very often they will lie about having children, having been married, being involved in the sex industry, already having foreign boyfriends and much more.
