BANGKOK- September 20, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; Immigration Department in Sathorn received reports about Mr.Robin John Paulner, 25 years old British citizen, David Anderson, 26 years old British Citizen and Phang Keng 27 years old Taiwanese citizen that are accused of faking 332 electronic cards, stolen 760,900 baht money and a skimmer machine. Mr. David and Mr. Robin were arrested at Soi Racha 10, and later Mr. Phang Keng was found at Soi Racha 28.

The investigation Department received reports from the Kasikorn Bank that a group of foreigners have been engaging in fraud ATMs that have been used to withdraw money in Samutprakarn area. The police therefore appointed police officials to monitor this area and eventually found foreign suspects whose name is Mr. Robin and Mr David. They drove a Yamaha Nouvo motor bike and drove to a Kasikorn Bank ATM in front of Soi Racha 10. The police therefore investigated and found numerous fake electronic cards and arrested the two suspects. Police investigated other areas and found another suspect in this gang in front of Soi Racha 28. In a room in Sukhumvit 64 skimmer machine and CCTV camera a total worth of 300,000 baht was also found.

These groups of foreigners would hack these cards from abroad and use it to withdraw money from ATMs in Thailand. Police officials are worried because they found a skimmer machine in the room, they believe that criminals would use the skimmer machine and CCTV cameras to detect the number on the ATM cards from people in Thailand, fraud a new card and use it to withdraw money from abroad. Fortunately, they have not fraud any card from Thailand. This however should be a reminder to everyone using ATM cards to be very careful while installing the pin, try to use one hand to cover the numbers. Also if you find any abnormalities in the ATM card you must report it to the bank’s staff or police so that they are able to investigate further.

After the investigation the three suspects pledged guilty and claimed that they began this fraud since 13th of September and for the money that have been withdrawn have been used for personal payments. Police investigated and found no historical records before 13 September from two suspects. Only Mr. Fang, has stayed behind after his visa has expired. The police are investigating for further details regarding the ATM fraud.
