That said tell them to go to their embassy. As a last resort they are sent home and need to pay the embassy back. (Ususally the embassy assists in having them call relatives and the relatives have to send the money.)
Also this is the makings of many scams. I just need 300 dollars to tide me over, I'll pay you back.... double. I'll write you a check on non existing bank account etc.
Get away from this person because the are desperate. Desperate people take desperate measures. (Theft, robbery, etc.)
No you won't mister cause you don't need to payback someone who never gave in the first place.
If he thought he could get a 4th visa exempt entry, his problem. Do not know anyone who tried it.
Also thought that in emergency Thai immigration would give a 7 day emergency entry.
But bottom line, mai phen rai. I mean he has been in Thailand for 3 or more months, has no one to call to help with an additional few dollars to get a Tourist visa. We are lalking about $25 I think. Loser.

Guess he can swim across the Mekong after dark. Be a wet back.
