8 Niger­ian men arrest­ed in Thai­land for online romance scam (Pho­tos)

Eight Niger­ian men and six Thai sus­pects have been arrest­ed for alleged col­lu­sion in an online romance scam, swin­dling near­ly Bt2 mil­lion from Thai women in Ratch­aburi, Samut Sakhon, Phit­san­u­lok, Chon Buri and Bangkok’s Dusit dis­trict, Thai­land.

Deputy Tourist Police chief Maj-Gen­er­al Surachate Hak­pan told a press con­fer­ence on Mon­day, August 6, that the inves­ti­ga­tion began after com­plaints from vic­tims – each of whom wired between Bt300,000 and Bt500,000 to the gang.

He said that the Thai sus­pects – includ­ing at least four Thai women – aid­ed the gang by open­ing bank accounts and with­draw­ing cash for the for­eign sus­pects.

Despite the Thai sus­pects’ claim of inno­cence, he said they would face a charge of pub­lic fraud and abet­ting trans-nation­al crimes, which is pun­ish­able with up to 10 years impris­on­ment.
