Giving 1 Star to Restaurant, British Tourist Arrested by Thai Police

Holiday Ayo - A British tourist in Thailand is in trouble for alleged online revenge. 21-year-old Alexander was arrested for allegedly posting a fake negative review of a restaurant in Phuket. 

Quoting Vn Express, he faces a prison sentence of up to five years and a maximum fine of 100,000 baht or around IDR 44 million.


The Italian restaurant owner filed a complaint after his restaurant's Google Maps rating plummeted from 4.9 to 3.1 stars. 


The investigation revealed several recent one-star reviews, one of which was from the 21-year-old tourist. 


The Mirror reported that based on the police report, this incident was triggered by a personal conflict between the tourist and the restaurant owner. 


He wanted to use the restaurant as a gateway to his condominium in Phuket, but the restaurant owner refused. 


To get revenge on the restaurant owner, the tourist allegedly asked his friends to flood the restaurant with one-star reviews, causing its rating to drop.
