Again, if it sounds too goof to be true, it probably is, especially when it comes to airline ticket scams.

 

The Thai Crime Suppression Division Police have arrested a tour company owner wanted over 6 arrest warrants. Her tour company was selling fake plane tickets to victims claiming that the company was able to source extremely cheap tickets from ‘luxury’ airlines.

 

Officers arrested Prayongsri, a 39 year old from Samut Prakan Province. There were 6 arrest warrants issued by the Prakanong Court. The court has charged Prayongsri on allegations of fraud. It all started 8 years ago when she opened her tour company. The company started advertising the sale of tickets from luxury airlines at an economy price tag.

 

According to officials, Prayongsri told buyers to transfer money into her account for the tickets. Instead of receiving the tickets as promised, the customers received only silence. Each customer lost an average of 100,000 – 150,000 baht. The total damages reach millions of baht with the prosecutors trying to find a total value of the scam.

 

Many of the victims filed reports with the police. But, Prayongsri continued running the same scam. Eventually, a total of 6 arrest warrants were issued for her and she was finally arrested on September 14 by the Crime Suppression Division. The suspect had been hiding in a relatives house in the city of Samut Prakan.

 

Prayongsri has told officials that, even though the money was sent to her account, another man had taken it all. She has now been sent to the Bang Na Police Station waiting for prosecution over the six filed cases.

Sounds like a quick and simple call to the actual airlines in question asking if they did indeed have this deal on would have saved a lot of folks a lot of money.

She could just say that 'the bank (employee) took it'. Totally believable and common in Thailand...

Wow

the same scam during 8 years

6 arrest warrants

she has used her own bank account for the scam

and she is ''hired'' in the house of a relative, all of this in the same city!

 

in a ''normal'' world someone needs now explain to the hundreds of victims

what was going wrong and why

(Unfortunely and as usual no more question on this or precision about this obvious dysfonction from the ''journalist'')
