Five men and a woman have been arrested for allegedly forging winning lottery tickets used to deceive lottery vendors in Kanchanaburi out of more than Bt500,000.

 

The six suspects were identified as Nongyao Jongjitklang, 50, Adulwit Thiamkhunthod, 24, Wat (not real name), 18, Surachai Naeprakhone, 21, Ladklao Muntham, 38 and Jenphop Pimpikhor, 21.

CSD commander Pol Maj Gen Jirapop Phuridej said Nongyao allegedly forged the tickets by cutting and pasting figures form other tickets and printing a QR code and pasting it onto the forged tickets.

 

Jirapop said Nongyao was arrested at her house in Samut Prakan where police found and seized several items used in the forgery.

 

The Government Lottery Office invented the QR code system to prevent con artist from cutting and pasting numbers to forge winning tickets. But the gang has beat the system by successfully printing a fake QR code to paste on the forged tickets.

 

Jirapop said the forged tickets were very subtle and each ticket took about two hours to be forged.

 

The five men used two fake second prize tickets and four fake fourth prize tickets to sell to lottery vendors in Kanchanaburi and earned some Bt560,000.

Some lottery vendors also bought winning tickets for a 3 per cent discount.

 

The CSD chief said information from the gang members led to the arrest of Nongyao on Wednesday.

I see the Lottery Office is on top of the system by using a QR code to prevent this happening.

Sounds more like a sexual offence.

Or was he a dodgy fakhir? (It does come from the Arabic 'faqir' - a poor man. Quite apt.)

"Jirapop said the forged tickets were very subtle and each ticket took about two hours to be forged."

 

2 hours work for something they'd sell to the vendor for a maximum of 80 bht?
