Thailand chief of immigration Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang reported that his men had arrested the head of a call center gang who had stolen 12 million baht from 46 victims in Japan.

 

Misuna, 40, had entered Thailand on a tourist visa and attracted attention after being able to live in the kingdom without any obvious means of support. 

 

Information supplied by the Japanese authorities suggested that Misuna was the head of a gang comprising another seven of his friends.

 

Misuna would pose as a policeman with the ruse that people were being investigated for illegal bank account use. He would manage to get their bank details.

Then he would send in his friends posing as police with fake search warrants to seize ATM cards then empty their accounts.

 

The equivalent of 12 million baht was lost. Seven of the gang were arrested but Misuna fled to hide in Pattaya. 

 

He was found to be on overstay.

 

He is now being returned to Japan to face charges there, reported INN news at an IB briefing yesterday.

Do we really need armed guards at press conferences ?

 

The armed guard is printed on the poster, together with the chief of immigration

"... and attracted attention after being able to live in the kingdom without any obvious means of support."

 

So one is indeed being watched.
