On Tuesday 22 July 2008 Mrs. Pauline Bratcher came to see Loong Tuck at the office. She has read in the Hua Hin Hotline newspaper that anyone with property fraud case can contact Loong Tuck anytime. At the meeting was present Mr. Ian MacKinnon, South-east Asia Correspondent of the UK Guardian newspaper.
She said that in her case the building work is incomplete, the contract has been breached together with embezzlement of her funds amounting to approximately 5 million baht and theft of both money and site equipment valued at approximately 100,000 baht.
She has made allegations that the fraud has been committed by a Mr. K. M. M. know as 'Mitch' and his partner Ms S. P. know as 'Supa'. Ms Pauline understands that he has other members of his family involved (brothers G.M. and S.M) in property development in Pattaya.
Ms Pauline told us that 'Mitch' has apparently a warrant out for his arrest in the UK dating back to 2002 and that he has skipped his bail for a court trial and disappeared. UK newspaper Daily Mail has exposed this fraudster and requested for information of his whereabouts. She has asked her daughter to expose 'Mitch’s' whereabouts (ie Pattya, Thailand) to the UK Police but her preference is that he is dealt with harshly and is sent to the Thailand prison system here for his current offences, rather than he is extradited to the UK.
Ms Pauline has substantial proof both via paper work and computer information download of their crimes and has paid a professional surveyor from Bangkok to survey her property / site and estimate its value in its current state. This estimate clearly shows a deficit of five million baht. This appears to be a criminal court case.
She intends to provide more evidence and then Loong Tuck will notify Hua Hin Police station soon. Mrs. Pauline Bratcher said has asked to post her story in the local newspaper and on www.huahinexpat.com website to warn other foreigners about 'Mitch'.
