PHUKET:-- Immigration officers are hunting for a Thai woman and three Nigerians wanted for scamming people in at least four provinces, including Phuket, in a confidence racket that so far has amounted to B280 million being moved through an account used for receiving payments from their victims.

 

The victim in Phuket was swindled out of more than B1.4 million, the Immigration Bureau has reported.

 

Immigration Region 1 Deputy Chief Col Phakaphong Sai-ubon broke the news at a press conference attended by Immigration Bureau chief Lt Gen Somphong Chingduang in Bangkok last Thursday* (June 4).

Does the 2 9 0 on the board really mean 2 8 0?

 

Or is it a misunderstanding?

Likely the 3 Nigerians have something to do with that.

Investigations and arrests similar to these are reported frequently, do you think that every one involved a police officer being scammed?
