On January 13th, 2024, the Thai Technology Crime Suppression Division (TCSD) raided an online gambling website center operating at a luxury private villa in Mae Rim, Chiang Mai.


According to a report by the TCSD, an investigative squad tracked down an online gambling operation center located in Mae Rim renting a pool villa as an office. The villa had two rooms with online gambling employees allegedly working on two websites as administrators, with a total of 12 individuals, to respond to customers’ messages, reported TCSD.

 

Furthermore, there were 16 computers, 33 computer monitors, 53 phones, 28 bank accounts, and other evidence confiscated with an estimated value of 1 million baht, reported TCSD. The two websites generated more than 100 million baht monthly, reported TCSD.

The officers pledged to investigate further to hold involved parties accountable for their crimes and discover the true owner of the gambling websites.

So I wonder if their investigation will also lead to the prosecution of the villa owner?

I hope so... but what if the villa owner is not involved... I almost got caught up in this same predicament recently... my renter wanted to use the villa address for a business with Thai 51% ownership and he is here on an EDvisa... we said no.
