  2. EEEK! Where is south pattaya? From the writing looks like Thailand.
  3. yes, it's Thailand
  4. Yay! 234 fewer fakes in the world (assuming they get destroyed).
  5. haha, well that was in 2005, I wonder what happened in the end!?!?
  6. This reminds me of when I worked for gazillionaires who held a yearly party in which they would lay out a ton of counterfeit LV merchandise, from shoes to wallets and handbags and belts, for all the gals to browse and buy. I didn't realize how foul it was back then, though I never bought anything. It's not just a broke-person's crime!
  7. Good thing they got caught!
  8. Thank gosh the police showed up
  9. Good to here the police got there! If only they would get chinatown...
  10. The 18 yo owner isn't the girl in red is it?!
  11. 234?! :nuts:
  12. Woww...18 year old? :wtf:
  13. Glad they got busted. :biggrin:
  14. :roflmfao: you just cracked me up!
  15. I am less hung up on the fakes then the fact that the person running the ring was 18 yrs old. I wasn't organized enough to get up in the morning and go to class let along run a counterfeit ring.

    Maybe someone needs to offer her a job with Ford -- she can help run Aston Martin now!
