Ripped off Chinese woman gets her wish as top cops raid Pattaya boiler room

Daily News reported that a top level police and international crime suppression raid on a house in Bang Lamung resulted in the arrest of 12 Chinese men yesterday. 

 

They had come into Thailand as tourists and were running an online scam supposedly selling goods to their country folk. 

 

The raid was led by Chonburi provincial police chief Pol Maj-Gen Nanthachart Suphamongkhon along with the Nong Prue station chief and the head of Pattaya's tourist police and other agencies. 

 

The Maj-Gen said that the Chinese men had rented house number 48/9 in Moo 6 Nong Prue for 95,000 baht. It suited their needs as it was quiet and out of central Pattaya. 

 

But the local police became suspicious when the 12 Chinese men didn't go anywhere, preferring to remain in their rented accommodation. A search warrant was subsequently applied for from the Pattaya court. 

 

The group were using fake profiles of pretty Chinese women on QQ Chat. They were taking orders for goods and not sending the merchandise. Losses are thought to be in the region of 10 million baht. 

 

While the raid was taking place the group received an angry and tearful communication from one female Chinese victim who said she had been ripped off to the tune of 7,000 Yuan (about 28,000 baht).

 

She sent a picture of handcuffs expressing the hope that those who had conned her would soon be arrested. 

 

She now has got her wish. 

 

Police are expanding the inquiry to try and ascertain who was the mastermind behind the scam.

The electricity meter man probably informed the police of the unusually high electricity usage.

This is how they bust marijuana farms in the UK. All those computers use juice.

How and why would police get suspicious of a house located away from the main streets ? Did police watch the house 24/7 to know they did not leave the house?

 

me thinks someone is not telling the full truth 

Perhaps neighbours reported their suspicions.

Perhaps 12 Chinese 'tourists' reported that as their address.

Perhaps TM30s, or lack of them, were useful.

How stupid of them to stay at one place. Perhaps they should learn from falangs way of scamming 🤓

To cheat or con someone it needs a brain.
