Pick-pockets strike again

A visitor

Dear Mail,
We have a wonderful beautiful visitor in OYMC who is a long way from home. This 90 (approx) foot schooner is from Grand Turk, Turk & Caicos Islands (UK) West Indies. She is also flying a Canadian Flag.
As an aside, if you complain, then you must also congratulate. Well done mayor for tiding up the rubbish dumping on Soi Wat Boon wooded area.

Pick-pockets strike again

Dear Editor;
I have been the victim of what appears to be an organised gang of pick-pockets. We had been shopping in the South Pattaya area and caught a baht bus in Soi Buakhaw. A group of Thai women got on a few yards further up the road and were talking to us on the bus. I have had experience of this happening before so was careful for the wallet in my buttoned down pocket. The wallet was still in my pocket when I left the baht bus as I checked for it. As I paid the driver one of the Thai women came round to pay as I thought and Jill who was standing on the footpath was suspicious and told me to check my pocket. My wallet was missing and the woman got on a motorbike which was waiting there and they shot off.
I know that there is nothing that can be done now but can you get a letter/article printed in the newspaper to warn others of this group? As I said I believe this group to be organised as the motorbike was there for them to get on.
I have cancelled the bank cards which were in the wallet.
