Three Khao San road ladyboys started stealing credit cards tourists – because they were too ugly to sell sex.
The rough-looking trio lost their jobs in a department store with dreams of making a mint by selling short times services to sex tourists.
But when nobody wanted to use them, the ladyboys began stealing cards from unsuspecting holidaymakers then committing fraud by using the cards to buy goods.
They were finally caught on August 8 after nabbing a Polish travellers card and spending 35,000THB at a nearby store.
Tityaporn Chaithaweep, 20, and Prathai Jaisiri, 28, were arrested in Pahonyothin 34/2 while Benjarong Ubon, 24, was collared later in Suphanburi.
They admitted trying to lure in the Polish man with the offer of a foursome but he quickly brushed them aside.
Ladyboys too ugly to sell sex
The three of them distracted him by causing a scene then stole his wallet.
After being questioned by cops, the ladyboys admitted stealing from nine other tourists in the Khao San road area.
They complained to police that they had tried being transsexual prostitutes, but had to resort to crime after failing to get any punters.
The group were charged with theft and a number of credit card frauds and deceptions. They were detained and sent for processing with Chana Songkram police.
Now, I’ve seen some pretty ugly katoys (ladyboys) finding customers before. So these girls must have been bad if they couldn’t make it pay… or perhaps they should have been touting their services a little closer to the red light district areas…
