Thai888 Law domain up and running

Monday saw all of our mail systems thai888.com down. We could receive emails but could not send as for an unknown reason. I called our domain hosting service Godaddy in Singapore. This did not help. It became its not our problem but they did try to help.

Email issues

The second call was to TOT Thailand and some techs came out on Tuesday. A few hours later they showed me a screenshot of the Singapore server rejecting thai888.com emails.

Godaddy or TOT

Call back to Godaddy in the USA, where nearly an hour later I was getting angry as no sleep for a day and no email for 2 days.

Again Godaddy rejected that it could be their Singapore servers, although I had the screenshot of the servers rejecting thai888.com mail!

So we have Singapore, Thailand, USA and me being an Australian trying to solve the blame game with me in the middle saying I have to run a company and staff and clients emails aren’t getting through.

In the end, it was not a Godaddy issue according to them nor TOT issue and so.

In the end, I did something very radical. I moved (migrated) our thai888.com domain and all things to the USA.

6 hours later I got a messaging saying migration was completed. Then I reconfigured all the mail and certificates for SSL to show USA domain hosting.

FBI uncovers scam on prepaid funerals – be safe go to www.thai888.com

Prepaid Funeral Scam

Fitting End to Multi-State Fraud Scheme

Casket and Flowers

Thai888 Law and funeral service with cremation is a one stop office for writing the Will, complete service, application for court probate, body repatriation, contact family friends embassy police, Australian CEO, English, female staff should you require. Sea burial ashes. Why go anywhere else when you can do all with the one company? 

Scamming nuns. Taking advantage of the mentally disabled. Stealing from the elderly. Just when you think con men couldn’t sink any lower, they do: This time, a group of fraudsters took money from individuals who prepaid their own funerals to ease the financial and emotional burdens on their families.

Recently, a Missouri man and five others were sentenced to federal prison for their role in a Ponzi-like prepaid funeral scheme that victimized some 97,000 customers in more than 16 states. The scheme caused more than $450 million in losses, smaller or non-existent death benefits for families at their most vulnerable, and huge profits that lined the pockets of the defendants.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, millions of Americans enter into contracts to prearrange their funerals and prepay some or all of the expenses involved. Laws in individual states regulate the industry, and various states have laws to help ensure that these advance payments are available when they’re needed. However, protections vary widely from state to state, sometimes providing a window of opportunity for unscrupulous operators.

That’s just what happened with James “Doug” Cassity and his Missouri-based company called National Prearranged Services Inc. (NPS). As early as 1992 and until 2008, Cassity and the other defendants employed by NPS or affiliated life insurance companies devised and ran a scheme to defraud purchasers of prearranged funeral contracts obtained from NPS. Also victimized were funeral homes that did business with NPS, financial institutions that served as trustees of the prearranged trusts established by NPS for their customers, and state insurance guarantee associations.

In general, here’s what NPS told its customers: After discussing what the customer wanted, a price would be agreed upon and payment accepted. NPS would make arrangements with the customer-designated funeral home. In accordance with state law, the funds would be placed with a third party—depending on the state, that third party would be a financial institution that would put the funds into a trust that could be only used for safe investments (like government-backed securities)…or a life insurance company that would put the funds into a life insurance policy in the name of the customer.

Here’s what NPS didn’t tell its customers: The company didn’t put all of the funds from customers into a trust or life insurance policy, but instead brazenly altered application documents—i.e., changing deposit amounts, naming itself as a beneficiary, converting whole life insurance policies to term life—and used the money for unauthorized purposes like risky investments, payments for existing funeral claims, and personal enrichment. In some instances, defendants even removed money previously placed in trusts and life insurance policies. And NPS routinely lied to state regulators about its practices.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, NPS also purchased large blocks of prearranged funeral contracts from funeral homes that had previously entered into their own prearranged funeral contracts with customers, falsely telling these funeral homes that the contracts would be rolled over into life insurance policies.

The complex case—investigated by three federal agencies, a number of state regulatory agencies, and the Department of Justice—began in 2008 when we received information from several state agencies on the shady practices of NPS and one of its affiliated life insurance companies. It ended in November 2013, when six co-conspirators who took advantage of people’s desire to protect their loved ones upon their own deaths were finally brought to justice.

Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones

Obviously, before you enter into a contract of any kind, make sure you do your due diligence on the other party (get references, check with the Better Business Bureau, etc.).

But here are some additional issues to consider from the Federal Trade Commission before prepaying for funeral goods and services:

  • What are you paying for? Are you buying only merchandise, like a casket and vault, or are you purchasing funeral services as well?
  • What happens to the money you’ve prepaid? States have different requirements for handling funds paid for prearranged funeral services.
  • What happens to the interest income on money that is prepaid and put into a trust account?
  • Are you protected if the firm you dealt with goes out of business?
  • Can you cancel a contract and get a full refund if you change your mind?
  • What happens if you move to a different area or die while away from home? Some prepaid funeral plans can be transferred, but often at an added cost.
  • Be sure to tell your family about the plans you’ve made and where your documents are located.

Thai888 Law Pattaya presentation on Living Wills at the Pattaya City Expats Club

Thank you PCEC for asking me to present information on Living WIlls and thank you Ren for interviewing me and keeping the pace.

Living Wills are legal in Thailand under the CCC Health Act and should be used when you are able to make one – ie competent enough to decide this is your future wish to not be resuscitated or left hooked up to several machines in a hospital.

Prolonging life under terminal illness or when brain dead is something that can be avoided if you have a Living Will in place.

Please consider it as should you make it yourself it is free. Yes Free.

Japanese tourist dies in Pattaya Thai888 Law

An elderly gentleman died in his hotel room in Pattaya and when staff discovered this they contact his insurance company that then rang Thai888 Law.

I took the call as they preferred to speak English.

They requested a simple cremation as there was a small budget to be paid out through the insurance.

The deceased son flew out and I met him at his hotel in Pattaya.

Via a Samsung smart phone on Google translate we were able to make plans and carry them out to make sure his father was properly cremated and the ashes returned to Japan for a proper ceremony.

Thai888 Law staff did everything from collecting the body and the death certificate from Bangkok, to transferring the body to the temple for cremation. Water, flowers, coffin, urn were all supplied.

Only 6 people attended and all of these things were done through the smart phone.

Amazing.
