Busted! Thai man bought nearly 100 vehicles on HP then pawned them

Thai caption: Con... almost 100 vehicles

 

Crime Suppression Division police announced the arrest of a 23 year old Nakorn Pathom man on a warrant for fraud. 

 

Aphisit came to the attention of police after a complaint from a Facebook user in Nakorn Pathom last year. 

 

The user was selling a motorcycle as he was unable to keep up with the installments. He met Aphisit who agreed to buy the bike and continue with the payments. 

 

Several months later the finance company contacted the original owner to say that he was five months behind. 

 

Aphisit had pawned the bike and spent the money on himself. 

 

He has been charged with similar offences concerning almost 100 vehicles that he pawned for 5,000 baht a time.

How could he do this without the green book?

People need engines and other parts. Getting such a vehicle for 5 K is more than cheap, green book, or not.

 

      Even a set of four tires with nice rims can be worth 5 K.

Getting someone to just take over the payments is a common way to sell vehicles in Thailand and all the main sellers will accommodate it - off the top of my head I think the fee is 3,500baht to change the name ? Maybe wrong amount  but something like that. Saves going through the pain of endless time wasters coming round to make you stupid offers.

 

But before handing over the vehicle get the buyer into the car loan providers office and get the paperwork done.
