Thai girlfriend nightmare situation...
(Alternative title: "Spot the Scam")

http://bangkok.craigslist.co.th/rnr/4367991510.html
....
Choice excerpt...

"Now this is where it gets difficult.

Last week we found out my girlfriend is pregnant with my baby. We are both very happy about this and I will support them and give everything I can. I couldn't think of anything I'd want more than a life and family with this woman that I love. She will be a great mum.

She went back to Hua Hin and an unbelievable turn of events started to unfold.

My girlfriend's mother insisted we not be together anymore. She has and is trying everything she possibly can to break us up.

But the main thing she has done is taken money from another man to marry my girlfriend, without my girlfriend even knowing!

Her mother knew she loved me and is pregnant with my baby. She has taken this man's money and spent it already. It cannot be given back.

My girlfriend 100% does not want to marry this man whom she does not know. She wants to be with me. We are a family now.

I don't know how her mother can do this to her.

For me it is an impossible situation. I know my girlfriend loves her mother very much and will not want to leave her with this problem. But she says she will not marry this man.

I believe he has paid in the region of three million baht. I really don't have money like that. On the money side of things I cannot compete or reimburse for this...."

Within 10 minutes, she received a call from Chiang Mai Traffic Police asking to meet. The letter was shared to many other pages within the next 24 hours, gaining a whopping 91,000 'likes' alone on one official anti-corruption site.

The next day, Pol. Sub. Lt. Suppakit Khankhamtang, deputy traffic inspector and leader of the Sriphum traffic stop unit, met with Autchara. He tried to reimburse the 500 baht fine and asked if she could take the posts down. She told him that she didn’t want his money and would rather have people know about police extortion. Autchara eventually accepted the refund under the condition that Pol. Sub. Lt. Suppakit wrote the following note...more
