After that, I started working for him. During my working time, he hired a lot of native speakers, around 6 I think, as well as 3 Filipino teachers, and promised them a very high salary but not a work permit. When I worked for him for the first 15 days, everything looked very normal. He asked a lawyer to talk with me about my work permit. He paid my salary every 15 days liked he promised before, and everyone got their own salary on time.
However, things changed at the end of May. From the beginning of June, he announced th a ‘truly excellent new system’, his so-called “monthly payment system”, whereby he deposited 6 million THB in the SCB Bank of Thailand to use if for office expenses. From that point, he pushed more and more old students’ parents, as well as new students to use their credit card to get a 1 year or 6 months course by paying only 3500 THB/ month, all of it studying with Native Speakers. From that point, more and more students joined us by using their parents’ credit card. On 20 June 2016, I still didn’t get my work permit, so I followed up this matter almost every day by asking Hopp (the name Frendy Horas used in Thailand). He just promised the work permit was almost done. On 22 June 2016, he informed us he would fly to Australia to take profit from his super market that is located in Australia and fly to Indonesia and Singapore to deal with the problems of his company.
