Department store staffer arrested for multiple credit card fraud

Picture: Sanook

 

Sanook reported that a Chonburi man had admitted to ripping off customers using credit cards at a leading Chonburi department store. 

 

The store was not named. 

 

Kornphiphat would use his phone to record the credit card details of customers while they were distracted. 

 

Over a five month period he then used the cards of at least 10 people to order goods mostly from South Korea that he would then sell. 

 

He was arrested after arriving disguised and acting suspiciously at Bang Saen post office where he came to pick up goods from abroad. 

 

The case came to light after reports of crime were made to the fraud department of a bank.

Amazes me that people who do this (any country) don't realize (or perhaps don't want to realize) there's a good chance they will get caught then jail and then lots of ongoing difficulties for years or for life.

Its time to introduce pin security for cashless transactions here. The habit of getting original signatures are a waste of time.

Many low salary Thais do not think beyond their immediate gratifications. Consequences be damn...if caught, they blamed it on their karma.

Wonder if I had no money, How'd I go about getting it if I couldn't score a cushy job and there was no social security or help from family.

Credit card theft would be high on the list for most unfortunate people.

Non voilent crime. One of the better options.

I'm guessing VISA support a lot. I guess visa get a lot from society so giving some back good to see.

Ironically, I've had credit card theft while I was working in South Korea.  Let's not pretend only Thais commit fraud.

Yes, particularly when Hamish McTavish appears to be a 6ft 3 Thai katoey on a spending spree.

There is a major mobile phone retail company where I used my credit card number and someone there (I imagine) did the same, running up $8000 with of fraudulent charges. Be careful out there, folks.

4 times in my home country never here.

But, stay on here long enough and you will be called a Thai apologist as there are those who seem to actually believe Thais are responsible for most of the crimes/problems in all SEA.

There was a recent case of a Thai ladyboy signing in Thai using a farang's card.  7-11 staff never checked.
