News : Cops Nab 10 for Call Centre Fraud Scam


Bangkok, Thailand, Jan 9, 2020 -- Immigration police have arrested 10 French and Belgian nationals in Bangkok for allegedly running a "call centre" scam to lure European companies into paying for fake financial services.

The gang, who were working from a luxury four-storey house in the Thong Lor area, had been under surveillance since Dec 23 last year, following a tip-off from a police informant.

Their behaviour raised suspicions as the suspects arrived to start work at 3pm and left the house around 9pm, according to investigators.

"They're the office hours of countries in Europe as they are between six and seven hours behind Thailand," Immigration Bureau chief Sompong Chingduang said.

Following a raid on their workplace on Jan 8, all the suspects — nine French nationals and one Belgian — admitted to the scam.

They said they had worked in the house for about a month, making phone calls to French and Belgian firms and pretending they were from a Singaporean company offering financial services.

"They claimed they could help clients manage corporate accounts and reduce tax payments," Pol Lt Gen Sompong said.

A check also found nine of the suspects came to Thailand as tourists. Only one of them had a work permit but not in the field applied for, he said.

In two other separate cases, the bureau nabbed two Chinese gangs for allegedly running religious scams at temples in Chon Buri, while seven foreigners were arrested for allegedly travelling on fake passports.

The two Chinese gangs offered religious services to compatriots at the temples and sold them sacred objects at inflated prices, police said.

A gang of 13, led by a 24-year-old woman identified only as Li operated out of Phuwanaram forest monastery in Sri Racha district while another gang of six, led by a 51-year-old man named Yibing, worked from Nanthawan temple in Muang district.

At Suvarnabhumi airport, officers arrested seven foreign nationals after biometric technology found them using fake travel documents.

They were four Turkish nationals — two men and two women — one Iranian man, one Dominican man and a Malaysian man, the officials said.

Biometric screening has helped the bureau arrest a number of suspects travelling on false documents.

2021 Buyers Guide Employee Engagement Solutions

Typical Problem!

In-house surveys can be time consuming, cumbersome at best and many staff often don't provide valid feedback as they fear ‘being too honest' with their employer for fear of retribution.

Even some 3rd party ‘managed' surveys can be challenging, costly and then there is no benchmark or significant value other than ‘managed by a 3rd party' approach, which leads to the problem of validity of data, security and integrity plus costs and time required by you.

The Solution!

TopPlace2Work is an easy to use program that allows you to gather valuable data on employee morale and engagement.
