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

Looks like zero fcks given in the photo with the BIB walking around and Chinese still plugged into their laptop screens.

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 

Like police everywhere, the RTP certainly have networks for back channel information.  Boiler room gangs don't bring this much computer equipment with them.  Without thinking about it too much, they probably bought a bunch of their necessary gear locally.   

It's not unlikely the police get calls from vendors wanting to stay in their good graces when large purchases, like ten+  desktop units,  are made by foreigners, with delivery to a house, not a business location.  That info alone might not mean a raid but it does put a pin in a map and a bring on a bit of scrutiny.

Could it be the police told them not to touch anything ? you know like the police do in most countries to preserve evidence like ?

But of course, the real "boiler rooms" in Thailand remain unaffected......probably something to do with the rumoured B17m paid each month!

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. 

 

TM30 is difficult to understand. Stay home is easier. And hey, if you've seen one temple, you've seen em all!

I quite like looking at Thai Visa- catching up on news/ general craziness- can everyone  please STOP mentioning TM30 - it’s boring, dull, not interesting etc - just not amusing in any way possible .

 

The boiler room/ dating scams are now a $billion business - it’s vast.

 

I was reading today that the scams are bringing $millions into Lagos - there is a whole property/ entertainment/ club/ restaurant scene that revolves about these scams .

 

So many lonely single women out there - it’s not good.

To cheat or con someone it needs a brain.

Perhaps neighbours reported their suspicions.

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

Perhaps TM30s, or lack of them, were useful.

Perhaps then article would have said acting on a tip ?
