A suspect wanted in Bangkok was arrested in the international terminal of Phuket International Airport after allegedly opening bank accounts for online scammers.
Phuket Immigration Officers at Phuket International Airport told the Phuket Express that they arrested a suspect in the departure hall of the international terminal earlier this week.
He is a wanted suspect from the Phra Khanong Criminal Court in Bangkok. He is accused of opening bank accounts for others to use for online criminal activity, fraud, and importing false information into computer systems causing other damage. These are often called horse accounts in Thai media.
The Phuket Express noted that details of the suspect were not released by officers.
