Thai girlfriend background checks

May 2, 2020 - Reading time: 6 minutes

As a leading detective agency based in Thailand, we regularly run Thai girlfriend background checks for our clients. We offer basic and enhanced background checks depending on the needs and requirements of our clients.

Thai girlfriend background checks typically include:

  • Check marital status and marital history
  • Name of any previous husbands and divorces information (where applicable)
  • Property residence checks (check for children or boyfriends living at the subject’s property)
  • Education/employment checks
  • Social media checks
  • Dating/adult website checks
  • Criminal record check/check for arrest warrants

Note: We will NOT hack your partner’s phone or social media accounts as this is against the law, please don’t ask.

All background checks are completed by us with 100% confidentiality and discretion. The subject will never find out that they have been subject to a background check. We offer free quotes for all work. Please feel free to get in touch with one of our experienced team members for more information on our background checks service.

Background check alternatives

Background investigations are useful to check if a Thai girl is married, check her marital history, living circumstances, work history, etcetera. However, running a background check on your Thai girlfriend is not always the best form of investigation, depending on your circumstances and the type of information that you are looking to uncover. If your girlfriend is working at a bar then you might find our decoy service to be more appropriate – as part of our decoy service we can find out if your girlfriend is leaving the bar with customers and whether she tells customers that she has a boyfriend, for example. Decoys can also be used at massage parlors, go-go bars, and many other service industry type occupations.

If you suspect that your Thai girlfriend might be actively involved in another relationship that she is concealing from you then we can investigate through personal surveillance instead, which involves checking the subject’s whereabouts and collecting hard evidence in the form of images/video to show her activity.

Are Thai girlfriends faithful?

We think it’s fair to say that the majority of Thai women are faithful to their partners and do not tend to commit acts of infidelity… However, it’s important to realize that the majority of women in Thailand also cannot speak English fluently and do not form romantic relationships with foreign men. Thai ladies that seek relationships with foreigners are effectively a small subset of the population. There is undoubtably another subset of women in Thailand that are responsible for proliferating romance scams, where their sole aim of a relationship is to extract money from their partners.

Traditionally women that are responsible for romance scams tend to have occupations in the nightlife scene, such as bar girls, go-go dancers and ladies working in massage parlors. However, over the past several years we have seen a steep increase in more refined Thai women that seek to manipulate their partners by having multiple foreign boyfriends at the same time. We have seen, for example, many Thai women that were attending universities meet their boyfriends through dating apps or websites. As these women are perceived to be more respectable than ‘working girls’, they often find it easier to form serious romantic relationships with foreigners; who in turn have a false sense of security that their girlfriend really is ‘different’. University students and Thai women that are working “normal jobs” have the potential to work this scam much easier than women you might find in the nightlife industry.

All ladies are different and it’s very difficult to predict whether or not your partner is likely to be faithful based on advice or information found online. If you have read the horror stories and are having suspicions about your Thai girlfriend, we can investigate her and uncover the truth in your case.

Why do Thai women cheat on their partners?

If we’re discussing relationships between Thai ladies and foreigners, then we think it’s fair to say that the main motivation for infidelity in these relationships tends to be money. It is not secret that some unscrupulous Thai ladies make a living out of being in relationships with foreigners… The goal for many of these women is to have several boyfriends at the same time – some men might send the lady an allowance every month while others only help out if the lady is having financial problems.

Women that have been exposed to the nightlife scene for prolonged periods tend to develop a strange morality where they no longer feel guilt for cheating on their partners. We have seen many ladies that appear to enjoy working as escorts and spending time with new men. If your girlfriend is living in a city such as Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket, then it’s easy for her to try and hookup with men at bars and nightclubs which encourage freelancers to drink there. We have seen many women that work respectable jobs in the daytime head out in the evenings to such places. For many ladies this is a lifestyle that they really seem to enjoy.

Check your Thai girlfriend

We recognize that taking the decision to check your Thai girlfriend can be difficult. Our goal is to help provide you with peace of mind and the confidence to proceed with significant life decisions. If we are not able to give you peace of mind then we will have the unfortunate task of delivering the truth in your situation and evidence of infidelity. It often makes sense to perform these checks before you begin the costly process of applying for a spousal visa for your partner or as pre-marital checks before committing yourself into a serious relationship. Our goal is always to analyze our client’s situation and offer the best and most cost-effective solution in each case.

Accepting the results

For many of our clients taking the step to hire us proved to be a very wise decision which allowed them to save vast sums of money and heartache in the long run. It’s important to prepare for the results of your investigation, to consider all potential outcomes and how you might react to them. Whilst we always try to offer our clients the support and advice, for some people the truth can be a hard pill to swallow, especially if the investigation leads us to taking photos/videos of their partner with other men.

Thailand, Thai women, and Thai culture are all very different to the Western world. Due to the prevalence of romance scams it usually makes sense to run a Thai girlfriend background check when you’re getting to know a Thai woman, no matter how you met each other or the stage of your relationship. Please feel free to contact us and see what we can do to help in your case.

5 things I hate about my Thai girlfriend

April 19, 2020 - Reading time: 4 minutes

There are tons of articles with people telling you ‘things I love about my Thai girlfriend’; however it seems that not many guys are brave enough to describe the other side of the coin. In this article I’m going to explain some things that I hate about my Thai girlfriend, while I’m sure that not every one of these points applies to all Thai women, I think that many guys will be able to relate with some of these observations made here.

Disclaimer: This article was contributed to our blog by our friend Danny G. The views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect or represent the views of Pattaya Private Investigators.

5 things I hate about my Thai girlfriend

  1. She is not financially independent
    Some Thai women earn a lot of money. Heck, many Thai ladies probably earn more money every month than I do. Sadly my girlfriend is not one of them. My girlfriend dropped out of high school and will never be able to earn much more than the minimum wage in Thailand unless she either goes back to university and completes a degree or starts her own business. Neither of these options will be possible without support coming from my back pocket.
  2. Her English isn’t good
    Again, there are many Thai women that speak excellent English - my girlfriend isn’t one of them. She speaks broken English and sometimes I can find it hard to understand what she is saying, especially if we’re talking about something complicated or involving emotions. We often resort to using Google translate on our phones so that we’re able to understand each other. If I tell her something that she doesn’t understand she will usually laugh or say “yes”, which is fine for light conversation but can (and has) create serious misunderstandings.
  3. Her family always come first
    My girlfriend’s family always comes first. I’m not sure if all women carry the financial burden for their parents their entire lives but with my partner this does seem to be the case. Whatever financial woe or problem her parents have is passed directly onto her, and if she can’t help then the buck ultimately stops with me. My girlfriend’s commitments to her family are not only financial… If there is ever any type of issue back in the village (specifically if there is ever a funeral) then she will want to jump on the first plane back there. From what I’ve seen and experienced, it seems like Thai women are never completely independent from their parents.
  4. ‘Saving face’ can be a nightmare
    The topic of ‘saving face’ is definitely something that you should look into in depth if you are starting to become involved with a Thai woman. There are many points to consider and this whole concept can be hard to get your head around if you’re coming from a Western background. In summary, ‘saving face’, at least for myself, means that my girlfriend will never back down in an argument. Even if she is clearly in the wrong, she will never back down or admit defeat. Instead of getting worked up and into endless arguments, it’s important to offer a ‘way out’ for your girlfriend, a compromise that allows her to back down without admitting she is in the wrong… If you can’t master this technique then the argument will never stop, because Thai people never want to lose face.
  5. She can’t cope with life in Europe
    My girlfriend constantly talks about moving to Europe. She wants to work menial jobs in Europe and save up money. This is surely a dream for many Thai ladies. I took her back to the UK for a 3 month holiday, and during her time there was some definite issues which popped up. The first being food. Whereas many foreigners are able to live in Thailand and eat Thai food, my girlfriend cannot eat English food, it’s too bland for her. I ended up spending a lot of money ordering Thai takeaway food for her most nights and driving the other side of the country to find oriental supermarkets for ingredients so that she could cook Thai food. For this and many other reasons she could not adjust to life in the UK.

We frequently provide background checks in Thailand for our clients. Please feel free to get in touch with one of our experienced team members for more information and a free quote.

Thailand background checks

Thai girlfriend background checks

Spousal checks and especially Thai girlfriend background checks are a common service provided by us. We offer standardized checks and also standalone checks depending on the requirements of our client. These checks typically include marital status (and marital history), identity checks and household checks. By checking the residents of a given household we are able to understand more about an individual’s circumstances; for example, if the lady has separated from the father of her children, it would be a red flag if he is registered as living in the same property with her.

Running a background check on your Thai partner can often be a wise move, especially before deciding to pay a dowry (or sin sod) during a wedding, or when a relationship starts to become more serious. We may be able to offer you other methods of detecting and investigating infidelity depending on your circumstances. Please feel free to get in touch with us for a free consultation.

Employee background checks

Pre-hire background screening is another area that we are keen to help with. These checks can be more or less thorough than spousal checks depending on your requirements and the nature of the subject’s role at your company.

Employee background checks typically consist of checking the subject’s criminal background, as well as checks to verify the individual’s identity and the information provided by them. We can also verify education and employment history where needed and cross check references provided by the subject.

Criminal record checks

Checking criminal records in Thailand often form a component of either spousal or pre-hire checks. In addition to checking criminal records, we can also check for active arrest warrants related to cases which might be ongoing and would otherwise not be detected. If you suspect that an individual may have criminal cases ongoing which they are hiding from you, we are often able to check and see whether this is the case.

Thai company background checks

For business due diligence, we can check the status and health of companies registered in Thailand in order to give you a better insight into the organization before you decide to conduct business with them. These checks can take a number of different forms depending on the nature of the business and your requirements.

Having dealt with numerous cases after fraud has taken place, we always prefer to start an investigation before agreements have been made. For more information please see our business due diligence page.
