500,000 will it be the deposit on a new sub or a few condo's

Or at least one person will pocket some very very expensive watches and gold rings stashed away for the future.

I wonder how many fake passports and money and visas are already in circulation! The Chinese can and do forge anything  and everything.Immigration are allowing them in virtually undetected!(Australia, USA, UK have been wary for years)

I am not sure this story is entirely true but I suppose it is trying to show that the new systems are plausible and that immigration are competent in their duties.

I hope there is more to come for all nationalities who are already in or entering the Kingdom for illegal activities.

Maybe a typing error?  500k in baht and not dollars ?

Yes, I too find it disconcerting how one can travel thousands of miles from home to a different country with a different culture and history, only to find things are not exactly the same as they were at home.

I can see how there might be some very expensive dinner reservations being made by senior members of the Imm. Police this weekend. Perhaps even some new vehicles and gold for some wives is on the way. 

 

Congratulations guys. Nice windfall. 

Wives????  Mia Noi's!!!!!! 555.

Yes, how could I forget the "little wives". I guess holidays and special times like this can get quite expensive for some of those guys.

Probably fake news to try and show people that their system is wonderful.

 

Who on earth thinks they can get $500k through an airport!!

 

A bit like they use the 'honest cabbie' story to cover all the sh1t that goes down here.

Your probably have been under a rock since 1845 . If you know how much cash money is carried like that , there is only a little bit of that getting caught , same as with drugs . Or do you think when someone is getting caught with 10 kilo's of coke, that that's the only drugs being smuggled ??

Believe it or not, much larger sums pass through airports every day but they are usually split between 2 or 3 people to try to avoid losing the lot. This guy would probably have got away with it if he'd not been using a dodgy passport.

 

Some airports seem to be more thorough when scanning luggage than others and in my experience Suvarnabhumi and Manchester are pretty lax. On more than one occasion I have had things in my luggage that should at the very least have lead to me being questioned - I wasn't. Last year I had 24 stainless steel UK double electrical sockets and back boxes + various other electrical items and brass plumbing gear that filled an entire suitcase. I really thought I was pushing my luck and fully expected to at least be stopped by customs on arrival at Suvarnabhumi. God knows what that lot looked like on a scanner - was it scanned at all? More than a little worrying in my opinion - I shudder to think what its possible to get through some of these airports.

 

I also know someone that often used to carry quite large amounts of cash (although nothing like $500,000) from the UK to Thailand. The cash was 'grey' (i.e. not stolen or drug money but undeclared income) but not declared and he was never picked up on it. Contrast that to Heathrow where they have dogs sniffing for cash and regularly find people carrying over the limit.
