How did he come up with 3 million USD.....How did he know they even had crypto......??

 

I'm confused. 

 

 

Yes, you are confused. $50,000 was transferred, not 3 million

Very unusual.

 

Sounds more like a twisted deal gone bad.

 

Someone extorts money from you, especially on an island it would be easy to apprehend them at the Ferry or airport before absconding.

 

Russians always conniving.

Being too ‘publicly well to do’ is not a good plan.

Particularly when your home country is at war, leadership reeling, and some country men will do anything to not have to fly home to be drafted shortly, when their money runs out.

Yes the question should be where did the people extorting the money  know of the Russian couples wealth  🤔

How many more Russians or other nationalities   in Thailand could be exposed to this scam 🤔

Russian women; botox'ed to the nines, huge fake eyelashes, plastered with so much makeup they look like some sort of character out of a Tim Burton movie, and as shallow, materialistic, grasping and climbing as you'll ever meet.

Did Putin supply his gang with the information? Were hackers responsible for determining who had what? 

 

Or were the couple foolish enough to be bragging about their new found wealth somewhere?

Isn't it a little odd that they did not report the matter to the police until three days later when they received the second demand for money? By the time the BIB knew about it the gang had made themselves scarce.

A coffee shop in Taling Ngam sounds a bit out of the way. On the quieter side of the island. Someone seems to have had plenty of information on them.

Wait until it happens to those "thousands of Youtubers".
Some have to show off their whole life.
Tell their story about back home, the money they made, the house they build in Thailand etc.
Some make a whole house tour and show the security system etc.
Each trip they make is published.

Wait until their house is broken in and later, insurance says "NO".

 

Who needs to publish their whole life?
Probably they need some income to survive in Thailand and wait until someone wakes up and cracks down on them because they life in Thailand and work in Thailand, most without any work permit.

There might well be more to this incident than revealed in the news story...:whistling:

 

From the article:

The duo operate a real estate business on the island and arrived last in Thailand earlier this year.
[...]
The men demanded that the couple pay them $3 million in cryptocurrency or the equivalent of ฿112.5 million but Mr Evgenii suggested that he did not have that amount of funds to hand.
[...]
Mr Abdullin told Ko Samui police that he agreed to pay over the money as he felt intimidated by the men and feared for his safety as well as that of his wife and family.
