Thousands of Thai women are "victims" helping foreigners in "marriages of convenience"

Thai media reported that police are investigating thousands of cases where Thai women accepted marriage offers from foreigners they never met to make money.

 

The money was offered by agents and was as little as 3,000 baht. 

 

But the women were desperate for cash and were under the impression that they would be able to divorce after a year. 

 

However, many have found that they are still married after three years and have lost their benefits as a result. 

 

The problem has been revealed as widespread and usually features men from India and Pakistan who want to come and live and work in Thailand, reported TNA.

 

Their report featured a marriage certificate that had been attached to a power pole in one area where there are a lot of men from the Indian sub-continent. 

 

TNA reported that there were ten "victims" in one housing estate alone in Samut Sakhon. 

 

But elsewhere the problem was rife - there are 600 cases under investigation in Nong Bualamphu province, 1000 in Nakorn Pathom and as many as 2,000 in Saraburi alone.

Tough. 

 

You knowingly entered into a fraudulent marriage.

"victims"!!! Must be misprint...or lost on translation. I'd have though paid and willing accomplice is more factual.

 

Maybe prayut feels he is the victim of the coup as well?

This isn't too surprising....(it's ok to cheat as long as it benefits me!)

 

Sounds like a corruption survey.

Will the so called victims be prosecuted for committing fraud or is that an occupation reserved for foreigners?

Why on earth would someone get involved  in a "fake marriage" to stay in Thailand? Indians? India has nothing to envy from Thailand !... Maybe Pakistan or Nepal, but seeing Thailand as "a land of opportunity" seems really far fetched. 

So just more BJ BS...

If the woman divorced after 12 months then what benefits would she receive unless it is benefits from her ex-husband in a divorce settlement.

Why are the police not going after the agents and charging them with corruption
