Couple arrested for allegedly cheating 100 people out of Bt50m in pyramid scheme

By The Nation

 

Crime Suppression Division (CSD) police on Tuesday arrested a couple for allegedly deceiving around 100 people into investing in a pyramid fund scheme, causing Bt50 million worth of damage.

 

The arrest of Piyaporn Saesanthia, 28, and her husband, Thossapol Boonmanut, 29, was announced at CSD headquarters.

 

Police said the two had been arrested under a warrant issued by Min Buri Court on September 26 last year. 

 

They were apprehended in Bangkok’s Bang Bon district on Monday.

 

The victims filed complaints with the CSD that the couple had used their Facebook accounts to deceive them into investing in a fund with promised returns of 20 to 50 per cent per week. 

 

The victims also claimed that they had been deceived into inviting friends to join the fund.

 

The alleged deception took place in 2016 and 2017, police said.

really have to wonder why so many keep giving these people their money, so many times we have seen the same scams with promises of big returns and they simply steal it all. When will people wake up that big returns are not able to be paid, stick it in the bank, at least it safer there

Classic pyramid scheme. Going on in America for decades. These two people are smart. But now they have to spend time in jails. Hope they get a lesser sentence just like in America

I do not do business of ANY sort with people / businesses that ONLY have:

Facebook or any other free web page

Free domain or sub domain

Free email address.

 

A website ( registered domain  ) is ""some'' protection because you can research the domain history.

id go along with that if its been registered for a ten year period. Many out there do the minimum one year which throws up a red flag immediately. Another thread on here about Dunbar Sterling, their domain is registered the minimum one year so obvious no confidence in themselves.

If you are greedy and stupid enough to trust any investment scheme that promises such a grossly unrealistic return per week, you perhaps don't deserve any better than being fleeced for every penny you're worth.
