As a divorced man in my late thirties, I never thought that I would fall victim to a common stereotype – being cheated by a Thai disco hostess, also known as a Siam Bu. Yet, here I am, sharing my story in the hopes of preventing others from making the same mistake.


It all started when my marriage of eight years fell apart. My ex-wife and I had been drifting apart for some time, and eventually, we decided to end things amicably. I was heartbroken, but I knew that it was for the best. Little did I know, my heartache was only just beginning.

A few months after the divorce, I decided to take a trip to Thailand to clear my mind and enjoy some much-needed alone time. As a single man in a new country, I was excited to explore and possibly meet new people. That’s when I met her – a beautiful Thai woman with a mesmerizing smile. She worked as a hostess at a popular disco in Bangkok, and we hit it off right away.

We spent the next couple of days together, and I was completely infatuated with her. She seemed genuine, kind, and seemingly interested in me. It was everything I needed at that moment, and I let my guard down. I didn’t want to think about my failed marriage or the possibility of finding love again. I was living in the moment, and it felt amazing.

As we continued to spend time together, she would often mention her financial struggles. Being the naïve and smitten man that I was, I offered to help her out. She seemed hesitant at first, but eventually, she accepted. I was happy to be able to help someone in need, and I saw it as a way to show her that I cared.


Little did I know, her financial struggles were not as dire as she made them out to be. She was living a lavish lifestyle, and I was unknowingly funding it. She would often take me to expensive restaurants and clubs, where I would foot the bill without question. I was blinded by my feelings for her, and I didn’t think twice about the money I was spending.

Things took a turn for the worse when I received a call from my bank. They informed me that there had been multiple unauthorized transactions made on my credit card – all of them in Thailand. I was shocked and devastated. I immediately called the Thai woman, but she denied any involvement. In a panic, I decided to cut my trip short and fly back home to sort things out.

It wasn’t until I returned home and went through my bank statements that I realized the extent of the fraud. Over $20,000 had been charged to my credit card, all of which were made by the same Thai disco hostess. I was heartbroken and angry. I had trusted her, and she had taken advantage of me in the worst possible way.

I reached out to the authorities, but they were unable to do much since the transactions were made in a different country. I was left to deal with the financial repercussions on my own. It was a tough lesson to learn, but I knew I had to move on and rebuild my life.

Looking back, I realize that I was a victim of the Siam Bu scam – a common practice in Thailand, where women target unsuspecting tourists, often using their charm and charisma to lure them into a false sense of security before robbing them blind. It was a hard pill to swallow, but I learned to be more cautious and not let my emotions cloud my judgment.


To anyone planning a trip to Thailand, I urge you to be aware of this scam and to not fall for it. Don’t let your guard down, and always be cautious of anyone who seems too good to be true. As for me, I have moved on from this experience and have learned to trust my instincts and be more careful with my finances. I hope that my story serves as a cautionary tale to others, and that no one else falls victim to this deceitful practice.
