Bad karma for Thai Camera thief

THAILAND | Wednesday, 7 May 2008 | Views [5104] | Comments [1]

All I can hope is that bad karma will follow whoever stole my camera. Grrr. I was shopping on Khao San Road late one evening when I realised my camera had been stolen from my zipped-up bag. The street was really crowded, as usual, with tourists and touts, so I can only guess that the thief must have joggled me and removed it from my bag in the process. I reported the theft at the local police station the next morning, where I had to take a number because there was another girl in front of me filing the very same complaint. The police officer told me it was a very common offense, which was cold comfort to me. The loss of the camera means nothing in comparison to the loss of the photos which I had stored on it.

How World Nomads helped

Reimbursed for the camera, valued at $207.79 (but policy had a $100 excess).

I agree...My husband just returned to London for a layover from month long journey in Nepal, 300 photos of his trip to Mt. Everest by himself and some jerk stole his camera on the train in London...so so sad, now he has nothing to show of his trip and some jerk has the 150.00 camera which is worth nothing and 10000000 dollars worth of lost memories. Bad karma had better come his way. I hope he enjoys the photos.
