Despite the disdain that Thai's have for people of color, 

a Thai teamed up with a Nigerian would be a scam-making match made in heaven

A Thaigerian gang, fused together by the only thing that they have in common: making money without having to actually earn it.

I find that hard to believe no Thai women involved, who opened the bank accounts for them and normally they are the one who pretend to be from the customs dept getting the money transfers

Maybe an influential person

Most Thai girls I've spoken to have said that they don't find black guys attractive and the same applies to Indians. The only Thai girls I've seen with a black guy have been on the plump side and the same applies to the Indians.

But the promised goods - including mountains of dollars - got stuck in customs and the victims needed to pay duty to get them released. The gang supplied bank accounts to use

The greed exceeding the brains again...

Unusually for such stories no mention was made of Thai women aiding and abetting in the crime, notes Thaivisa. 

Maybe there weren't any Thai women involved, notes Bob A Kneale.

The chances of any of these blacks admitting their real ethnicity for the scam are five-eighths of fck-all.

I find it hard to believe that Nigerians were scamming, it's so out of character.

They probably needed convincing done by a higher up general with many rings on his fingers and many wristwatches.

That golden oldie is still doing well then.

I stopped a staff member sending 20,000 Baht to "Malaysian customs" for a cash package, intercepted while on its way to Thailand for the same reason fifteen years ago.

 

Another golden oldie still doing very well is farang pensioners and poor economic migrants thinking that a Thai girl 20-30 years younger with nothing in common and whom they met online or in a bar or shop is genuinely and deeply in love with them for their handsome looks and nothing to do with money.
