Pattaya woman demands 5,000 baht before she will return iPhone she found

Pattaya woman demands 5,000 baht before she will return iPhone she found in 7/11 saying she's within her rights because a new one would cost Bht 30,000


A shameless Pattaya woman who found an iPhone on the counter in 7/11 would not return it to the owner unless she paid her 5,000 baht for “looking after it”.

The owner offered her 1,000 baht but this was not enough to satisfy her. So the police were contacted.

Update – Pattaya woman charged with theft over ransomed iPhone

The finder of the phone said they must all go to Pattaya police station, where she said she had a friend, to sort it all out.

Earlier Neungrithai, who is three months pregnant, had called police to say that a woman called Saifon Moonchan, 45, had called her sister to say that she had found her phone and wanted 5,000 baht.

Police went to a bar in Soi New Plaza in the Soi Bua Khao area where Saifon said she was well within her rights to demand 5,000 baht.

Was the phone – an iPhone 7 Plus – not worth 30,000? Only five thousand is a bargain, she claimed.

The story appeared on Facebook though it was not immediately known exactly how the matter was resolved.

However, clearly the woman should have been charged with theft and extortion.
