How to avoid the horror of immigration scams

Recommended Posts

I've heard of a few instances of scams taking place when leaving Thailand. People being jailed and setup, bullet in the luggage or made up issues with your documents.

Does anyone have tips on how to best avoid this or is it just the luck of the draw?

It might be luck of the draw.

One thing to avoid is the duty free scam.  When you pay for the items that you bought, the cashier throws in a little extra that you think is a freebie.  Then you are stopped by a cop for shoplifting and taken to a facility, there you meet a guy who can make it "go away" if you pay the fines.

Don't look rich, don't piss off anyone with power. If their goal is to get a bribe then they know they can't get blood from a stone. Many thousands of people pass through BKK everyday, you're more likely to get hit by lightning then get scammed in the airport if you're being just a regular joe who is leaving Thailand.
