Fake lottery seller arrested with 2B circulating funds.
A fake lottery gang has been arrested with about 2 Billion THB circulating funds in their bank account. The Crime Suppression Division made the arrest on the gang. Victims have come forward with at least 100 Million THB in damages so far. The gang made claims to the victims that they know big names in law enforcement. They also claim to be an official government lottery seller. Police Major General Montri Teskan and related officials arrested Rattakorn 30 years old, Rapiparn 25 years old and Ratchaporn 32 years old on 4 November 2022.
The suspects are wanted with arrest warrants issued on November 1st on charges relating to fraud and money laundering. The suspects were arrested inside a home located in the main city of Khon Kaen Province. Police Colonel Wiwat stated that in 2018 the suspects scammed 2 victims with damages of 126,811,999 THB. The suspects stated they knew big officers and had a high quota to sell lottery tickets. They invited victims to invest in the business with them with a promised profit of 1-5 THB per ticket. During the first few times victims received the profits as promised. With good profit they continued to invest even more before each lottery draw.
Then in February of this year a victim needed their money back to invest in business. The suspects kept moving the dates and the truth was revealed. The suspects were not lottery distributors. The victims filed reports that led to the arrests. Each suspect had their own jobs, one to find victims, one to create fake credit, and more. The investors money would be transferred to Rattakorn’s account. He would then transfer it right away to a different member in the gang. Investigation reveals that there are 2 Billion THB circulating funds in the gang’s accounts. They all live luxury lifestyles with brand name items from head to toe.
