CityNews – Locals have complained to police that lottery vendors at Wat Phra That Doi Kham are over charging and aggressive, using hard sale tactics and intimidating those who don’t buy their tickets.

 

Police have received complaints by civilians that lottery vendors have been using hard sell tactics to push lottery tickets. One complaint was made by a person visiting with his family who claimed he was harassed by vendors to buy a set of tickets worth 550 baht. After he refused, he entered the temple to make merit and when he returned he found his car had been scratched with a key.

 

Police have yet to open an investigation.
