This looks like never ending story. If they are thinking of living on charity better live in their own country. Don't go to a place where you think everything is free for you.

Just stop such craps. I would rather give money to the poor hungry beggar along the road.

Admitting to working in a friend's restaurant. He better be above board or he will have additional things to worry about.

although Arron’s bank in England has a free travel insurance policy, he did not activate it before he left.

So it's definitely his fault for not checking what he should have done.

Now I know this may sound callous, but I don't understand why people can't be bothered to check important details when organising their holiday.

Arron was living in Thailand and working at his friend’s restaurant on the island paradise when things turned sour.

This doesn't add up.
First it mentioned 'travel' insurance, then the article says " living in Thailand and working at his friend’s restaurant".
I don't know if the details aren't clear - perhaps he was there for, say, six months on a long holiday, in which case (I think) a lot of travel insurances will cover you for up to that long - but only if you 'activate it' of course.

Another day, another GoFundMyStupidity. Does anyone check if any of these appeals are scams?

Most are, as most seem to come from stupidly, or naivety,  of the one injured.

In terms of accidents, then yes it is. Only the headlines change:

An Englishman

A Frenchman

A German

A Man

The Brits seem to always get in trouble in Thailand and then run to create a Go Fund Me page.🤨

Perhaps as a Brit I should get into it with a fictitious claim, it does seem like a growth market.

Most banks(usually your credit card) have a limited time travel insurance that covers a normal holiday period

 

Mine is 14 days

This New York Times journalist committed suicide and they immediately set up a GoFundMe

 

The guy was 44yrs old and worked as a journalist at major publications

 

He didn't have life insurance???

Life insurances pay put for suicides?

Oh yeah 

That could be the case

 

Although I just Google and looks like a lot do after a certain time period of having a policy

 

His may not have

 

Good point
