The man made headlines for the wrong reasons in 2014 after he scammed a lot of kindhearted Thai people off their money for pretending to have a swollen foot. Holst was even featured on a television show and later received financial aid worth 50,000 Baht (about $1,511) from an association that helps German travelers overseas.

Unfortunately, instead of using the money to go back to Germany, Holst used it to pay for his party needs in Pattaya, Thailand.

He didn’t just make it to Thailand, though. Holst was also spotted in several other Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore, to name a few.

In September 2016, Holst was nabbed by Indonesian authorities after he tried to pull his con in Surabaya.
