Couple in Isaan used regular printer to create fake 100 baht notes

A married couple from the north east of Thailand have been caught counterfeiting 100 baht notes. 

 

Our picture courtesy of Daily News shows Suphansa, 30, and husband Wa, 29 doing some pointing in case there be any doubt.

 

They had been using a normal printer with some quality ink after downloading images from the internet.

 

They then put the fake money in online top-up terminals to get credit in an electronic wallet.

 

This was then sold onto games players and gamblers. 

 

The terminals were only able to detect fake 1000 and 500 baht bills. 

 

100 baht notes passed. 

 

The case came to light after Thailand's tech police were informed that people were using fake notes across the north east in Sisaket, Ubon Ratchathani and Yasothon. 

 

This couple are from Ubon and were arrested after a warrant was issued in Kantharalak district of Sisaket.

 

It is the second such case reported by Thaivisa in recent months. 

 

Daily News noted this was a repeat of cases using terminals that are called "tuu bun term" in Thai.

They could have doubled their profit by printing 200THB notes.

You always learn something new. So machines can't detect fake 100bht notes. Then it should be viable with a laser printer. Not suggesting anything though.

Personally, I would have thought these terminals would have detected any fake baht notes.
