Dealer on Wheels

Need to sell your house in Bangkok? Want to buy some property in Thailand? How about snapping up a hotel in Pattaya? "No problem," according to my taxi driver today. As an unlicensed broker, he claims that he can find buyers and sellers for any type of real estate or property. And if you need a huge loan to buy a resort, "no problem". This cabby can hook you up with a loan shark. Never mind that they will hunt you down and break your kneecaps if you don't repay them on time.
