Pattaya police arrested a jet ski vendor who allegedly extorted 25,000 baht from an Indian tourist who allegedly scraped the side of the boat.
Pornsuphan Phoomnok, 25, was taken into custody after tourist Jaspret Singh, 34, complained to police he’d been forced by pay for alleged damage to the jet ski Nov. 3. Pornsuphan returned the money with police saying he confessed to never expecting the Indian to go to authorities.
Singh and friend Chuadet Dawan, 24, said they rented the jet ski in front of the Mike Shopping Mall and were told they’d scraped the side the boat. After having their money returned, the two tourists declined to press charges and the vendor was released.
Tourists Jaspret Singh and Chuadet Dawan stated in writing that they were pleased to get their money back.
