Two Nigerians arrested in Pattaya for romance scams, card skimming


The Pattaya News

Pattaya-

Pattaya police have arrested two Nigerians alleged to be members of a romance scam preying on Thai women.

Ositadima Ibeh, 28 and Chinedu Calistus Ndubuisi, 30, were accused of being members of gangs conducting romance scams and skimming cards, said Pattaya police chief Pol Colonel Wichai Krobphet at a press conference on Monday.

Police seized forging tools for copying ATM cards from them, Wichai said, along with fake ATM and credit cards, as well as fake ID cards.

Wichai said the pair’s latest victim appeared to be Wilaiwan Pongkwapol, who had transferred her money to an account.

Police monitored the account and made an arrest after the two suspects allegedly withdrew the money from an ATM machine at the Kasikorn Bank on Soi Arunnothai in Central Pattaya.

The two claimed they were hired by another Nigerian to withdraw the money and then deposit it to the man’s account in exchange for a 5 per cent commission. They said they had so far deposited over Bt1 million to that account. They claimed they were not aware that what they were doing was wrong.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
