Region 3 police have announced the arrest of a call center owner and three others who pretended to be Anti-Money Laundering Officials.

 

The gang picked on certain people who they told they were being investigated for criminal activity. These Thai individuals were persuaded to transfer money to accounts run by the Taiwanese.

 

It is understood to be an international fraud and extortion inquiry.

 

Arrested at his house in the Suranaree Industrial Estate in Muang district of Nakorn Rachasima was 45 year old Chi Chi Min.

 

Police say he ran the operation and had been "hiding out in Thailand for 10 years", reported Daily News.

 

Three others were also arrested as the inquiry expanded.

 

Taken into evidence were 22 ATM cards, bank books, many paying in slips and 580,000 baht in cash.

 

Police acted after many complaints were received nationwide. Losses to Thai people are believed to be around 100 million baht.

Nice to see Thais getting a taste of their own medicine for a change.  Too bad these Lads were apprehended.

a taste of their own medicine? 

this is a straight up boiler room operation, hardly a typically thai crime.

What about the people that transferred money to them,they thought

they were been contacted by Anti-Money Laundering Officials.and

thats why they handed over the money,so surely they should be

investigated,as it looks like they had something to hide.

Possibly but given the justice system is so long winded and corrupt, they may have decided it was more expedient to just pay instead of the lawyers and ten years.
