It's blame the victim and not deal with the problem again. How can Phuket be a world class tourism location when tourist are ripped off by jet ski operators, tuk-tuk mafia, corrupt police, and two tier pricing system. Wake up Phuket. The world is in recession and people will think twice coming here if they feel they are going to get ripped off. Youtube is not the problem!!!!!

Have to agree with fritz why shoot the messenger if it wasn't for big trouble jj would still be scamming tourists, along with all the others. I have asked editor wht has jj not been punished yet and why do we not get information as to what is happening about him. typical thai way just keep shtum and blame everyone else.

Cut the cr@/), actions in motion speak louder than words. Thai tourism is almost dead. Sorry but true.

I'm surprise of the surprised comment. This is the way the orient deal with the problems since ever. It really doesn't matter who scam who and so on, the real problem is youtube. The only thing it's important is, don't lose the face.

A couple of weeks ago, the three newspapers in Phuket reported that there would be a jetski good-will giveaway last Thursday, in which all jetskis would congregate on Patong's beach and, for one day, give free rides.

I suspect there has probably been confusion over two phrases, a ''free-for-all'' - which is what the jet-skis are every day - and ''freeloader'' . . . which is apt for people who expect something for nothing.
