If you are a smoker, don't walk down the street smoking. Particularly in some areas of Sukhumvit, you may be accosted by a policeman asking for 2000 baht if he sees you dropping your cigarette butt in public. It's debatable as to whether or not this is a scam, but something to be aware of nonetheless. With Thailand increasingly moving towards banning smoking in public places, you are better off having your cigarette in a bar or restaurant, anywhere that provides an ashtray to ensure that you are not caught out.
Powerful drugs such as benzodiazepines and deleriants can be bought in some less-scrupulous pharmacies in Thailand. This means that it is very easy for someone to drop something into your drink without looking, and this is happening every day in Thailand. If you open your wallet at the bar to reveal a thick wad of thousand baht notes, somebody '''will''' have noticed - be careful drinking with strangers and don't leave your drink unattended, go to the toilet between drinks if possible. This happens to Thais as well as foreigners.
