A 27-year-old woman has faced court over an alleged $9 million fraud and money laundering scheme that targeted Thai-Australian communities.

 

Police will allege in court the woman claimed to be a registered remitter and transferred money on behalf of clients. They will also allege she used social media to advise inflated rates for the money exchanges.

 

On Friday morning, police searched a home and unit in Strathfield South and seized 15 pairs of high-end women’s shoes - from luxury brands Gucci and Louis Vuitton, designer handbags, mobile phones and electronic devices.

 

The woman, identified as 27-year-old Siriluck Fatima Chimamalee, was arrested and taken to Auburn police station where she was charged with three counts of dishonestly obtaining a financial advantage through deception.

Obviously more to it when the importance of hand bags and shoes are put in the equation.

She is going to find that the Justice system in Australia is far different from in Thailand. She won’t be able to buy her way out.

In Australia these days you can almost get away with just about anything,the country is just about f....d. Every criminal is just about protected in some way or another.
