Thai police arrested a career online criminal outside a house on Nang Bua Khlee Road in Suphanburi in Central Thailand yesterday. 

 

Phakphakhin, 30 has been swindling people in online scams since 2017, report Daily News

 

He was jailed last year and served time in Thanyaburi Prison until his release in March this year.

 

He went back to his old ways as soon as he was released.

 

This time he conned 40 people on nearly two dozen sites he opened up on Facebook to sell surfskate products and watches. 

 

He had none and would make constant excuses after failing to deliver the goods. Then he would offer 50% back to those complaining. 

 

The police were soon on the case.

 

Daily News said that the suspect was trying to recoup money to pay off previous creditors in his scams who had filed claims against him.

Recoup how? By scamming more people? That would be the only way for him to pay anyone back.

Obviously he is not very good at it; he started 4 years ago and is still working at it 😂

when will you realise that  it IS still skate boarding. Just because some skate board manufacturer changed the name of their skate boards as a marketing ploy to give the minions the impression they'd come up with something new. Call it what you like, but skate boarding is skateboarding. Same board & wheels, nothing new, just a marketing campaign to create a false impression to increase sales.

Not sure why anyone who clearly knows nothing about surfskates would get so excited about names - but what you are claiming is like saying a surfboard, snowboard and ironing board are all the same.  Or like saying all vehicles with wheels are buses - including cars and motorcycles.

 

If you had ever tried a surfskate you'd know it was not marketing.

 

Skateboards are bi-directional and cannot move without kicking like a scooter.  Surfskates were developed in the 90's by surfers looking for a way to practice on flat wave days.  They only go in one direction and move by a surfing action with no need to kick.  Their trucks are a totally different design.

 

And with zera marketing, surfskates became hugely popular due to the closure if gyms during COVID.  

 

And Thailand finally became a real 'hub' - as surfskates are more popular here than anywhere else.  Unfortunately this resulted in high demand which the small manufacturers in Australia and Spain could not meet, opening the door for on-line scams.

OK I'll accept your point about the trucks being different, BUT regardless of which style of truck they are STILL SKATEBOARDS. Officially they are either Surf-Skateboards OR Cruiser skateboards, Longboards or just plain ol skateboards.

I thought they meant SURF/ SKATE /SnowBoard  which could be called lifestyle branding. Brands like DaKine etc. support all, plus of course windsurf which is truly passe.

 

I guess they don't have conditional release here. A crim of this nature should be barred from internet use except for essential purposes for years on penalty of more jail.
