She's alive! Krabi woman who faked death to avoid "loan sharks" is found

Picture: Sanook

 

A woman called Sudawan, aged 30, who went online to post pictures of herself apparently dead with cotton wool stuffed up her nose has been found. 

 

Relatives had gone to the police as they did not believe she was dead. They thought she had gone into hiding after having to find 1,800 baht interest a day to pay loan sharks. 

 

Pol Col Phitsanu Phuangphrom of the Krabi provincial police said they took on the case after it created a lot of public interest. 

 

He reported that Sudawan from Ao Nang had been found at a close friend's house in Phichit in Thailand's north central area.

 

Relatives confirmed to Sanook that she was very much alive. 

 

Now the police are set to help to broker an agreement with her and the people who loaned her the money. 

 

An arrest will be made if those people broke laws related to loan sharking by demanding too high interest rates.

Interesting word for someone who has no money.

 

btw, does anyone know what the maximum interest rate is, if the police are talking arrest?

Or should I be cynical and expect it to mean an arrest will be made if the police don't receive satisfactory brown envelope?

1800 A DAY surely a typo error, or another one who thinks money grows on trees. you borrow money, you pay it back, simple, money lenders are not nice people, as many have found out.

Her mistake was not changing her name. I suggest Regina Perrin.

Too bad so many Thai people fail to have any money management skills.

 

But then again that seems to be a worldwide problem as well.

Quite simple for the shylocks to have the person borrowing money to sign for a higher figure than they actually get so interest payments are in line with what is legal. That said I have no sympathy for the girl. She knew the cost of borrowing and who she was borrowing from.

I feel sorry for anyone lending to a thai actually (incl. loan-sharks) 😎

Could be true, if a daily payment + the usual loan shark 20% is missed it's added back on, so then it multiplies & becomes compound interest.. keep repeating and it can soon escalate to ridiculous sums !

What a beautiful family. Snitches on her just like that. And if the people who loaned her the money found her earlier than the cops?
