Police officers today arrested 31 year old Internet idol with over 100,000 followers, in a famous Thai mall. The Internet idol Baifern, real name Monthira, was accused of defrauding more than 40 investors of over 10 million baht in a hair and nail salon business.

 

Police Colonel Thiti Saengsawang ordered officials, together with the PCT5 police and investigators from the San Kamphaeng Police Station, Chiang Mai, to arrest the suspect. The Internet idol was wanted under two arrest warrants.

 

The first, issued by the Chiang Mai Provincial Court on October 5, charged her with deceiving the public and dishonestly or fraudulently importing into a computer system computer data which was distorted or false, in whole or in part, or computer data which is false, in a manner likely to cause damage to the public. The second, issued by the same court on October 26, carried the same charges.


The arrest followed a police chase after the Internet idol was suspected of enticing investment in hair and nail salons. Over 40 victims were reportedly duped into investing more than 10 million baht. Baifern is a well-known personality, having appeared on numerous television shows, modelling gigs, and as an influencer.

I guess her luxury lifestyle as an internet idol has come to an abrupt end.

I know the blurring of the face is to conceal people's identities but she's a model, an influencer, on all kinds of TV shows and they even provide her internet ("Idol" :cheesy:) name along with her good old actual name to the public!

Well then, I guess nobody will ever figure out what she looks like in these digital times!
