Wachira was allegedly taken by Masarat to her house in tambon Rim Kok "

 

Is this house right in the central city?  Does anybody know exactly where it is?

Apparently my close neighbors have some part time jobs.

Chinese New Year Money,  so DAMN fake you have to laugh. Cut and trim to suit. This HAS to be a joke or created to bemuse Thai's and Farang alike.  Yep, I want a role of paper $100 bills to, Tal Lai Baht ?

I'm curious what denomination the are???? If they are 100's they are the older model, not the newer model with the large gold 100 on the back... I can see that much in the picture....

     This story reminds me of an American Expat I know living in Pattaya who went to Phnom Pehn and came back to Thailand with a stack of 50 of the fake $100 notes.... He bought them in a market place for 2 or 3 USD so he took them just for amusement and passed them around..... AND THEN.... when I learned about it I suggested what could have happened to him if he had got caught at the airport entering Thailand with all those  counterfeit bills..... He had never gave it a thought but he was happy that he made it through with out that happening..... Can you just imagine if it had gone the other way?????

The news article says she was arrested in Muang Chiang Rai. That means somewhere in the city's central district. "Rim Kok" means the edge of the Kok River which flows through Chiang Rai, so Tambol Rim Kok is a subdistrict on the river in the district that includes the city. I bet a little googling would turn up a map if you're still curious.

Ya, that's why I asked the question if anybody knows exactly where the house is.  I own a condo at the Condotel (Utaradit Rd) and visit CR occasionally.  For all I know the house could have been just down the street (except I think the Condotel tambon is "Vieng").

The way things are going in the US, they might be worth the same in a little while.

Did you bother to look at the pictures in the OP?

 

I see lots of dollar notes without black ink covering.

Posing as a buyer, Wachira was allegedly taken by Masarat to her house in tambon Rim Kok and shown the fake banknotes and a chemical liquid used to cleanse the notes of black ink that covered them.

The scam requires clean notes, since there actually is no magic black ink cleanser.
