Saw a similar scheme yesterday for mango farming on Facebook. Little information, just promising almost 20% profit. Obviously trying to lure greedy, but gullible people...

This Covid business where most people sat at home doing nothing has given berth to  many types of scams and fraud schemes all over the world some in the megas billions of all currencies and Thailand with its gullible people has their fare share... how's the old saying goes: a fool and his money are soon parted...

Problem is, people are probably buying into it now and we'll have news about it a year later stating that hundreds of people got scammed by it for hundreds of millions and that the suspects already ran away 6 months ago.

 

Proactive is a word Thailand should use more.

Similar scam years ago , Chinese scammers selling breeding

pairs of Coypou * ,for big money , promised to buy young and

pelts , lots of farmers bought them, but the Chinese never returned,

 

So the Farmers were left with 1,000's of baby and adult Coypou , that

nobody wanted , some farmers ate them other just set them free.

* very large South American rodent.

When monies of a large amount are involved, be sure that govts will pull out all the stops and scour the earth to find and bring the perpetrators back to face justice.
