Immigration police had to do very little to arrest a major player in a Nigerian E-mail scam.

 

The suspect came to them!

 

Immigration at Chaeng Wattana in Bangkok had been told by a person seeking a reward for information that Bertrand Ifeanychukwu Akile would be on his way to do some immigration business. 

 

Instead Pol Maj-Gen Phaiboon Noihun and his team were waiting with a warrant for fraud, false pretenses, false documents and taking part in international crime. 

 

He wasn't smiling but spokesman Pol Col Siriwat Deephor was:

 

"It was as easy as pie," he said. "He just came to us". 

 

Akile was involved as part of a 100 million baht scam headed by Onyekachukwu Elvis Smart Ekbule who is already in custody. 

 

It has been reported in the past that there are more than 1,000 Nigerians doing time in Thai prisons. Many of them are scammers, con artists and drug dealers.

 

They represent the largest foreign community in Thai jails.

I am kind of curious as to why Nigerians flock here to do their scamming ? 

 

Is this a problem in Vietnam, Indonesia or the Philippines too or is it just here?

They are in every country . It’s easier to get money sent to offshore accounts then to Nigeria (where everyone knows it’s scam central)

As someone once said, "Never underestimate the stupidity of your customers."

Doubt it's a problem with Thailand, the problem lies inherently with nigerians and all scammers (india, etc.) who take advantage of these countries to set up shop.  But things are likely changing in Thailand with crackdowns on scams, illegal immigration, etc.

I wonder which one he was: the general, the former minister, the principle private secretary, the bank manager, the lawyer for the deceased estate ... 

 

If Elvis escapes, then can we say that Elvis has left the building?

Indeed 🤣  always do your due diligence and if there is not one single reason not to like a deal, then its a scam, "too good to be true".

The place seems rife with aliens committing or hiding away from their criminal deeds.
