Warning to British expats in Thailand
British Expats are warned to avoid fellow countrymen purporting to be so called Financial consultants selling or “advising” on investments here as its illegal for a non-Thai to deal in any way with investments BUT ALSO because of the now obvious trend by many to sell what appear to be safe investments which subsequently turn out to be pump and dump deals which afford these agents huge commissions.

Pattaya to invest 328 million into abandoned sports stadium
Complaints that the unfinished sports stadium, which resembles a ruined roman colosseum, remains unfinished still, after 15 years, has seen the Mayor AND a committee from the National Anti-Corruption Commission inspect and investigate. Intended to be the showpiece for the city’s sport ventures, instead it remains a crumbling, half finished wreck , despite contractors being paid, and much of the infrastructure already installed is beyond repair due to weathering. Problems clearing rock under the surface, and even a lack of labour due to covid have been blamed, however that rock would have been well documented during surveys prior to the start and the halt on construction began years before the covid era. The city intends to sue the contractors and a further 328 million baht has been allocated to the completion, presumably that will be paid in drip payments to ensure completion.
