No it is not.  Cite the Thai law violated.  

I agree 100 percent. There is nothing in Thai law that the funds can't be a loan or even a gift. But of course stealing a loan is a crime.

Cops only on the case so they can put it the the naughty aliens & visas folder which contains spells and incantations to quicken promotions.

I guess he is not one of the rich Indians who are going to save Thailand. Maybe he was just going back to India to tell rich Indians how good Thailand is to visit?

and I wouldn't lend 800k to anyone INSIDE my immediate family. I'd have a better chance of getting it back in I flushed it down the toilet and then sat by the edge of the ocean waiting for it to float back to me. 

If you give it a while, you can probably collect 800oz in a wheelbarrow.

This data is made available

I think in many places one can securely omit "made".

Some 20 years ago, where I lived before, all ISP's that did not give access to authorities lost their license.

How could he keep the passport if you need to go to immigration 

Go to immigration and take the passport after that stuff's done.

 

The fact that this guy was caught at the airport, on his way out of the country, backs up what I said. Certainly where 800k Baht is involved, over £20,000.

The post states a "friend", but that is probably a euphemism for "agent". That's probably why the police worked their magic. Got to keep those agents happy.

They will have been paid to investigate. 

Depending on the amount up to 10%, I think I would pony up the cash.  Not to encourage this type of extortion but to guarantee that the perpetrator got a lot more than he bargained for.

And here I was thinking the filthy rich Indians coming to Thailand could fart 800k by accident.
