Police raids call centre banking scam in Hua Hin

On Friday 26 August 2011 Hua Hin police arrested 14 suspected members of a transnational call centre banking scam luring victims to transfer money to the gang’s bank account. The arrested included 10 Taiwanese nationals, two Chinese nationals, one Myanmar national and one Thai woman.

During the raid police found 14 telephones connecting to the Internet, six laptop computers and a tiny closed-circuit television (CCTV) for monitoring situation outside the house.

The gang leader was identified as Taiwan national, who used a tourist visa to enter the kingdom in June. The gang has worked in Hua Hin for about one month and rented the house and hired Taiwan and Chinese nationals to make phone calls from Thailand to deceive residents in China and in Taiwan to transfer money to the gang's account.
