On August 20 2013, police in the province of west of Bangkok announced the arrest of Mr. T. Sira Voravith, a 32 year old for forging legal documents and for using these fake document along with Mr. Thanadon Kajornchai 41 years old, for forging legal documents, for using fake document and also money fraudulent by proving to be someone else.

1. The criminal will be walking around the ATM area after the person has used the service.

2. The criminal will pick up slips from the garbage or nearby the ATM machine then choose the slip that has the highest amount and keep that slip so that they could use the account number on it.

3. The account number will be used to identify the name of the cardholder

4. after receiving the name, they will then identify the ID card number, date of birth and house registry
