Thailand's immigration police have announced the arrest of two more Nigerian romance scammers.

 

They were part of a gang of scammers based in Pattaya that were involved in swindling 2 million baht over two years. 

 

The latest arrests earlier this month were part of a continuing investigation by Chonburi immigration, Nong Prue police and other agencies. 

 

Immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong "Big Oud" Chingduang was on hand with some vinyl boards to help present the evidence yesterday.

Back in July a 40 year old Nigerian and his 36 year old Thai wife were arrested. He was pretending to be an American doctor and she was going out to get the money swindled from the lonely at ATMs. 

 

Bankbooks and ATM cards and other items were taken into evidence and the pair were charged with fraud and the Nigerian was additionally charged with illegal entry. 

 

Investigations continued to round up the rest of the gang and on October 2nd at a condominium in Nong Prue two more Nigerians were taken into custody.

Thirty six year old Onyekachi was found in possession of a passport but was on overstay of more than four years - 1,477 days. 

 

Ifeany, 35, had no passport at all and is to be charged with illegal entry. 

 

Seven phones, three computer notebooks and a checkbook were taken into evidence. 

 

The pair will be prosecuted then deported, reported Naew Na.

The person who prints the 'reasonably priced' boards I dare say has 'connections'

not really. use a fake profile phots(s) and use english and or google translate.

 

main reason the scam works is greed by thai women. fake american doctor promises them the world then needs some money assistance to deliver that promise.

I've worked in Lagos and Port Harcourt in the past and I can say with my hand on my heart it is the "Arm-Pit" of the world and you see dead bodies all around! How do these people gain entry!
