I reckon the kanchanaburi police wouldnt have paid over about 300thb. They aint so classy..

I wonder if they are all impersonating also.

The suspect was found to have committed a similar offence in 2008. He previously worked for the border police force and knew the system,

The system being you buy your transfer or promotion.... don't you just love the BiB.

Authorities issued a warning, recommending that people who want to buy a position make sure they deal with a true colonel and not with an imposter!

The very fact that someone commits such an offense, lends credibility to the possibility that such salesmanship happens in the real world. Pathetic.

One has to be very careful here. In Pattaya a few months ago, a group of official looking Thais turned up in the area once known as Pattayaland. They said that they owned the actual streets 1,2, and 3, and were demanding a fee from all of the businesses having frontage on these streets ! Only in Thailand ? I expect not 😞

"Three or four cases have come to light with the suspect charging 200,000 to 300,000 baht for his services."

 

This was an easy one. The number one rule when selling official positions is: There is a minimum 500,000 baht service charge. Such a cut rate sum like 200,000 stood out like an honest cop.

There's only one reason why officers down south fell for that scam: the proposal sounded so real. That is what the real concern is.

why would anyone believe you can buy a position in the Thai police force?

Can you buy a position? Or is it a long-term lease with the rent money paid in advance?  I suppose one would have to ask a retiring cop if he sold his position.
