Two Twatpackers Fined For Scamming Phuket Locals

The gig is up for two Eastern European twatpackers whose various scams to bilk Phuket natives of their baht has been found out.

Police on the tourist island said they picked up the 21-year-old Ukrainian and 30-year-old Russian men seen begging at the Boat Plaza Market in Samkong Thursday.

Both forked out 500 baht and were sent on their way with a warning to stop trying to crowdfund their travels.

The men had plunked themselves on the ground at the market with a hand-written sign saying they were broke after traveling through Asia for 15 months. They asked for cash so they could continue their life-changing adventure.

The story changed after police intervention, however. Despite the fine and warning, the Slavic snake oil sellers were back out on Phuket’s streets Thursday night, this time with a sign saying their motorbike broke and they needed cash for repairs.
