A 46-year-old man who allegedly cheated parents out of tutoring fees two years ago, has been arrested. Theera or Ariyanatta Ratchuwong was arrested recently in Nonthaburi’s Bangyai district under arrest warrant issued in 2017 for paying with bounced cheques.

 

Immigration police chief Pol Lt General Surachet Hakpal said the suspect claimed to be a tutor for young students and allegedly cheated parents out of a total of more than Bt500,000.

 

Surachet said Theera advertised in social network platforms and websites that he taught mathematics, English, and science subjects.

 

He had opened a tutoring school and convinced students to enrol. However after parents agreed to hire and paid him fees, he disappeared. Surachet urged other people who might have been victims to notify police.

 

Surachet said the suspect claimed that he wanted to work as a tutor but he had no money to pay back the debts, so he decided to run away.

Sounds like a Thai name, has Big Joke found a bad Thai?

Arrest warrant was issued 2 years ago....I would think police would be a bit embarrassed that Big Joke had to make the arrest. Thailand has many policemen so I wonder what they do all day.
