The vendor was taught by his father to be honest about money.
When: February 6th, 2021
Where: Phanom Sarakham district, Chachoengsao province
What: On February 6th, 2021, a flower garland vendor who sells at the intersection in front of a Tesco Lotus in Prachinburi was overpaid by a customer. The normal price for the garland would be 20 baht. The customer accidentally handed the vendor 500 baht. Once the vendor saw what happened, he tried chasing down the truck but couldn’t catch up.
Since then, the vendor, Mr. Chatree Kongkam, 28, has given his phone number to the press in hope that the customer will contact him so that he may return the money.
Mr. Chatree said that he doesn’t want the extra money. His father taught him to be honest about money and it is a large sum for himself. He wants to return it back to the customer and asks that the customer call him at 061-564-1480 at any time.

My personal profile on Facebook was completely nuked — BOOM, just deleted with no warning. This isn’t just a Facebook jail sentence. I was completely banned from the platform.
12+ years of connections, networking, content, the whole works is just poof gone.
So look, if you came to this page from Facebook, and you’d like to continue to read True Crime Thailand content in the event that my group and page are taken off the platform (it’s inevitable), then I only ask that you sign up to my newsletter.
I do not spam. I only use it to send out a weekly digest of the best crime news in Thailand, along with original reports that I write — about once a week, too.
