1. No jobs was taken away from Thai people as their clients were in France and Belgium.

2. Legal money transfer and taxation

3. Company is registered in Singapore (not in Thailand)

The Singapore company employed farangs to work in a call centre in Thailand so how is this not taking jobs away from Thai people? How on earth did you come up with the idea that the money transfers were legal. It was more likely a boiler room type operation or money laundering business otherwise the Singapore company would have a legitimate call centre.

You are misleading people. If you work in Thailand you need a work permit.

Show me the exceptions in the labor law where it says you don't need one if your customer is outside Thailand.

If you are so sure, give me the place where you work from, I will send somebody from the labor office, you admit that you work for a customer outside Thailand and we take it from there.

So, that means that you made all the co-working spaces illegal? Do you really understand what it is you are posting?

I don't have an issue with these types of people or groups being caught, usually they're scamming people.

Or the types that think they are so smart to be above the law...

Unlikely that a bona fide French company would open a call center in Bangkok to cater to its clients in France. They were probably flogging something "unregulated" or outright illegal. Online gambling, binary options, yet another "coin", the likes. Au revoir, messieurs.

 

Indeed,  they would be most likely be located in Morocco  and employ Moroccans. But I don't know anything about this business.

Do any Thai people know how to speak fluent French because all their customers are in France and Belgium? They can't even manage English which they studied for 11 years.

 

The report doesn't state whether it is a legal or illegal company or else the Singapore government would have come out to state by now that it is an illegal money-laundering company. 

 

In case you don't know where to check for official news in Singapore, click below.

Just like with other 'digital nomad', the main reason of opening a call center in Thailand is due to the low cost versus opening up a similar call center in Singapore.

Yes sure, such as work as owning a rental place offshore.

 

Either ur old guys <deleted> is work or nohting is work.

 

I think it would be saver to kick out all old people who have rental property overseas, they clearly break the law.

Wiki - Digital nomads are a type of people who use telecommunications technologies to earn a living and, more generally, conduct their life in a nomadic manner.[1] Such workers often work remotely from foreign countries, coffee shops, public libraries, co-working spaces, or recreational vehicles. This news post is about an illegal call centre sited permanently in a converted house in Thailand.

Wiki is a medium where anyone can post. Nothing to do with the LAW

What challenge? I sked you to provide me with facts and not fiction. Is that the challenge you are talking about, because you surely seem to avoid that.

if you mean regarding me and my work? That is not done without WP. I have a setup company and more than 10 Thais working in it.

No, it would be VOIP equipment to disguise where they were really calling from.

The truth be known, someone knew about this and face saving mode is on so that the whole story does not surface.
