BANGKOK, June 6 – Thai police have made an arrest in a major falsified tax invoice scam and seized evidence of fake tax invoices of goods valued almost Bt3 billion.

Indian pair face Thai drug smuggling charges

BANGKOK, July 26, 2013 (AFP) - Two Indian men have been arrested and charged in Thailand with trafficking crystal methamphetamine worth an estimated $1.4 million, a customs official said Friday.

The suspects were detained Thursday on the holiday island of Samui after flying in from Chennai in southern India via Singapore.

Custom authorities said they had found 12.3 kilos (27 pounds) of methamphetamine hydrochloride, known as "Ice", in their luggage.

Traffickers often try to smuggle drugs though regional airports as security is tight at Bangkok's main air gateway, said Paisal Chuenjit, director of the Customs Department's Investigation and Suppression Bureau.

"I'm sure that part of the drugs were destined for users in Bangkok because Ice is popular among wealthy people," he added.

He said both suspects had confessed that they were hired to bring the drugs to Thailand.

If convicted they could in theory face the death sentence although Thailand has not executed anyone since 2009.

Their arrest came two days after an Indonesian man was arrested at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport with crystal methamphetamine worth an estimated $500,000 after arriving from India.

Two human trafficking suspects arrested in Bangkok

BANGKOK: -- Thai authorities have arrested and charged two suspected human traffickers, an Uzbek woman and a Thai man alleged to have been involved in luring another Uzbek woman into prostitution in the Thai capital.

Anti-Human Trafficking Division (AHTD) Police on Thursday arrested an Uzbek woman, and a Thai man identified as Phornchai Pantikote at Soi Nana in downtown Bangkok with an arrest warrant issued by the Criminal Court on suspicion of conspiracy to commit human trafficking.

 The 25-year old victim, alias Jenny, earlier sought help from the Consulate-General of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Bangkok, claiming that the Uzbek suspect invited her to join in a clothing business which export clothes from Thailand to Uzbekistan.

The suspect provided her with an air ticket to Thailand.

 Once in Thailand, the victim was forced into prostitution in the Nana area to pay back the 90,000 baht air ticket.

The Thai male suspect threatened to assault her and plant her with drugs so that she would be arrested by police if she refused to become a sex worker.

The victim said Mr Phornchai claimed connections with senior police officers.

 Mr Phornchai denied that he forced the victim into the sex trade but said he told her to repay the air ticket.

He said he worked as a taxi driver in Soi Nana.

 Meanwhile, Anti-Trafficking commander Pol Maj Gen Chavalit Sawaengphuet said most Uzbek women travel to Thailand to work as sex workers, adding that the two suspects will be questioned further.

Ex-bank employee held for selling fake money

BANGKOK: -- The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has arrested a former bank employee for allegedly selling fake banknotes of several foreign currencies, including the US dollar.

However, the suspect insisted the notes were real but damaged, which is why he could sell them for three times less.

DSI chief Tarit Pengdith and his deputy Pol Colonel Yannapol Yungyuen told the press yesterday that the department, in conjunction with a US Secret Service team, had arrested Pisit Ritthikulpipatin from Bangkok's Beung Kum district as part of a sting operation.

Officials also seized 1,000 US$100 banknotes in the 67-year-old suspect's possession.

The real value of the banknotes is about Bt3 million, but Pisit allegedly tried to sell them to an undercover official for just Bt800,000.

Officials also found a banknote detection device, as well as some documents about counterfeit banknotes and foreign currency trade at the suspect's home.

Initial investigation found that the suspect used to work at a bank in the foreign currency division.

Pisit claimed the banknotes were real but had been pulled out of |the system because they were damaged.

Yannapol also quoted the suspect as saying that the banknotes were only sold to certain targeted groups.

However, the DSI official said that since orders for allegedly making banknotes were also found at his home, it is suspected that he had done this job for years.

The suspect initially admitted to being a retailer, not a fake banknote maker as accused.

Well-meaning drug dealer in custody

BANGKOK: -- A drug dealer was arrested yesterday after attempting to donate 11 yaba pills at a centre collecting donations for flood victims in Chon Buri's Sattahip district.

The man reportedly urged workers at the centre to sell the drugs and use the proceeds to aid flood-affected people in the Eastern region.

Apparently under the influence of his own wares, former drug convict Jakkrit Mukpradap, 39, was arrested while trying to donate the pills to a booth in front of Wat Thep Prasart yesterday morning.

He confessed to having taken five yaba pills earlier in the day.

A search of his home turned up a home-made gun and some ammunition.

Jakkrit said he got the drugs from a Rayong supplier identified only as Chamlong.

Jakkrit said he had dealt drugs for three years after serving a prison term for his prior offence.

He said he was motivated to aid flood victims after watching a TV news report, so he donated the pills believing staff members could sell them for Bt3,000.

CREDIT CARD FRAUD

Three Malaysians arrested for credit card fraud



PATHUM THANI, Feb 5 - Three Malaysian nationals were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly being members of a counterfeit credit card ring, according to police.

Pol Maj Gen Smith Mukdasanit, commander of Pathum Thani provincial police, said three men identified as Tee Hock Peng, 50, Tan Cheng Hock, 57, and Lee Jian Tyng, 24, were suspected of being members of an electronic card skimming syndicate.

The police were earlier informed of unusual practices of a group of foreigners who purchased goods with electronic cards and when the machines rejected the payment, they would switch to many other cards until one of them was accepted.

Police coordinated with banks which confirmed that the cards were counterfeit.

The three suspects confessed to the police that they would immediately destroy a card once they could use it to buy goods, while the items they purchased would be later sold, with the money shared among them.

They were charged with possession of fake credit cards as well as for illegally producing, obtaining, and transporting counterfeit credit cards for use in the Kingdom.

ATM CARD FRAUD

Bangkok police stop 100 million Baht fake ATM card fraud



09-04-2014

Bangkok: -- Police in the Lumpini district of the city have arrested two Romanian nationals caught in possession of 795 counterfeit ATM cards.

It is believed that the suspects had been under investigation by the police following a spate of money withdrawals using fake ATM cards across inner city Bangkok.

Pol Maj Gen Suebsak Phansura said the men were apprehended after they were seen acting suspiciously in the Kloeng Toey district on Tuesday April 8th.

After an initial search on the roadside, one of the individuals was found to be carrying a haul of ATM cards.

The pair were then escorted to an address on Sukhumvit Soi 11 where a further search was carried out.

Following both searches, a total of 795 ATM cards and a high-tech mobile data skimmer were seized by detectives.

Further investigation, with additional help from Siam Commercial Bank, found that out of the 795 cards, 364 were blank, while 431 were said to contain transactional data, thought to be embedded from bank accounts hacked in Italy.

The bank officials estimated that had the pair been able to successfully use all the cards to withdraw the maximum amount from ATM machines, the possible damage could have totaled at more than 100 million Baht.

After being interviewed by police, the pair said they were hired and paid 500 euros each to withdraw money using the fake cards at various locations throughout Bangkok.

After analyzing CCTV footage, police believe that the two men, and another man who was later arrested at the address on Sukhumvit Soi 11, had already withdrawn around 1 million Baht using the counterfeit cards.
