He has no money, no passport, and hardly any belongings, and he does not live in Hong Kong - the past week was not a good one for Charles Frith. Mr Frith, 39, said his trouble started on the evening of June 20, when a taxi driver, who picked him up in Central, was not listening to him. Wanting help, Mr Frith asked the driver to pull over at a police station so officers could assist him, he said. He stopped at the Wan Chai branch - but before Mr Frith could return with law enforcement, the driver had left. In the boot were all of Mr Frith's belongings, he said. 'I lost everything - everything,' said Mr Frith, a self-employed strategic advertising planner who lives in Bangkok. 'And I'm on the island with only HK$18 in my pocket.' Mr Frith showed the Sunday Morning Post a copy of his police report, which listed such stolen property as a laptop computer, a brown wallet containing money and debit cards, and two passports, one British and one Maltese. Mr Frith was visiting friends in the city, and intended to fly to India last Tuesday for business. He was hoping to spend the last few days with a friend in Central. Now, he is back on Lamma at a friend's place, drinking bottled water at an internet cafe and waiting for money to be wired to him. Mr Frith said he had difficulty obtaining cash from his Thai bank accounts. Friends from overseas are now helping him. The first round of funds could get to him as early as tomorrow, he said. Mr Frith was critical of both the police and the British consulate. The police - to whom Mr Frith gave the last four digits of the taxi's number plate, 1878 - had not been of assistance, he said. And the consulate will not issue him a passport without him paying a fee. A British consulate spokesman said: 'We are aware that HK police are currently investigating the alleged theft of Mr Frith's belongings.'
