IMMIGRATION officials are investigating the case of a man who claims he is an American and has been living on Phuket without a passport for six years.

Police in Patong said that when approached while acting suspiciously at a popular beachfront resort, the man gave his name as Dean Mancuso, aged 50.

The fine for visitors who overstay a visa in Thailand is 500 baht a day. A six-year overstay would amount to 1,095,000 baht.

However, when the man appeared in court yesterday, he was fined 7000 baht and a judge ordered his expulsion from Thailand.
