"Entrapment" is having a male expat agent solicit sex or a relationship with your girlfriend, in order to test the lady's faithfulness. The person who performs the entrapment is also known as a "decoy".
Entrapment is a common method in Thailand, possibly quick and easy in some cases, but you should consider:
For entrapment to be valid and get useful information, it must be conducted properly.
If you send a very handsome young man, dressed like he's worth millions of dollars, who pulls out a wallet loaded with cash, and takes special interest in the lady and her life, then the result is probably not valid. Imagine if a beautiful and rich lady from overseas suddenly came to you and took a special interest -- what would you do? Tell her you have a Thai lady dependent upon you for financial support so you cannot entertain her advance?
The entrapment decoy can offer some of those things, but shouldn't offer all of them.
On the other hand, if you send a guy with a personality and looks that the lady will find unappealing, then you'll get a false result of another kind.
We analyze the lady and the situation with you, and then together we decide on what is an appropriate entrapment decoy, not an ordinary barfly but an attractive kind of expat who she would likely be exposed to sooner or later, and an expat who would also likely be interested in her.
Shall we send an apparently rich but inexperienced foreign tourist?
Or a young and handsome foreigner dressed and acting like he doesn't have money but he's up for fun?
Is she just looking for tourists who will leave Thailand and send money while not interfering with her other relationships, or would she take an interest in an expat who lives in Thailand? (This is often one of the first questions the ladies ask -- do you live here or are you just visiting?)
Is she open to quick sex for money or just fun?
Does she offer different things to different guys, after "reading" the guy for what will work with him?
This can predict how she will behave if you take her to your own country and community. You don't want to be the laughingstock of your community when your Thai lady turns out to be sneaking around behind your back, once she's in your country.
We do not offer to go all the way to sex. If our job is to see if she will go to a short time hotel, then we will have a camera waiting in the lobby or just outside the hotel or just outside the hotel room, and there will be an emergency call to the entrapment guy on his mobile to get him out of the situation with a plausible excuse. If to they guy's condo, then still no sex. If you want an entrapment agent who will go all the way to sex, then you'll have to look for another private investigator because we won't do this. We also will NOT take any photos inside a room with any nudity at all, even short of sex. No sex, no nudity. Photos without nudity are OK.
We use the experienced expat husbands of Thai lady agents to do these cases, and in most cases they work as a team whereby the wife does any photography, last minute calls, and subsequent "Who was that farang?" gossip with your girlfriend (hoping to get gossip on farangs and any other boyfriends in general).
Sample case studies of Thai girlfriends:
- Hotel employee, fake student, delayed money requests, terrible deception, Bangkok
- She did not ask for money ...
- Bargirl, success story, mixed but faithful, Bangkok
- Bargirl, Pattaya, with monthly support but repeated urgent pressures for extra money
- Quick entrapment by expat agent
- Surveillance by Thai agents
- Undercover Thai lady agents
- Denial -- sometimes the immediate reaction
- For foreign wife, find out if husband has a Thai girlfriend -- IF
- For foreign wife or man's family, find out about husband's Thai girlfriend -- ABOUT
- Composite issues
- Safety issues
- A customer's article on another website about our investigation, on Stickman Bangkok (we knew nothing of this article until after it was online and have had absolutely no editorial inputs to it)
- Thai bargirls and freelancers - some notes
- More case studies... hundreds!
