SETTLEMENT REACHED IN THAI VISA CRIMINAL FRAUD CASE AS SITE GOES UP FOR SALE

In Grahame Beecham, thaivisa.com, Uncategorised by Andrew Drummond12 Comments

A criminal fraud case which was brought by Briton Grahame Beecham against ThaiVisa Property Company has been settled out of court.


Mr. Beecham who lives in Hua Hin and was a partner in the business withdrew the case and I understand the settlement with ThaiVisa’s George Andersson was amicable.

The name Thai Visa has been taken off a bar in Hua Hin next to ThaiVisa’s property office.

This may have something to do with a report by StickmanBangkok that ThaiVisa.com, the controversial site for expats which is billed as the biggest in Asia, has been sold

Announcement says Stickman will be made tomorrow.

    You've omitted the not so small news by stickman that thaivisa has been sold….Might have been a condition of the sale to have this resolved

    I hope for their own sake, the buyer has checked out ThaiVisa's actual traffic rates, not the rates Conehead tells them.

    Over the last months topics on Thaivisa have been getting fewer and fewer responses – some days it seems like little or no traffic on Thaivisa at all.

      This is true. The site has gone very quiet.
      The hard-nosed moderators blocked hundreds or thousands of members.
      Massive censorship/deleting of posts.
      The most damaging thing was having The Nation sponsor the News Forum. It's a Junta/Royal mouthpiece and brainwashed a percentage of the members and divided the site into Reds & Yellows.
      Drop The Nation I advise the new owners.

    Outstanding business model….get gimps to work free…bodgy up the member numbers….flog it off and retire..

    Like others I have also been banned permanently for posting in the world news section. My crime was to disagree with Jingthing and another who must spend their entire life on the site to clock up around 50,000 posts. Scott is a moderator who is very pro Israel and will not allow any critics to have a go at Netanyahu. I notice I can now access the site without using a proxy.
    In my opinion the new owner needs to weed out a lot of the moderators who are doing him no favours.
