BANGKOK – February 27, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; The arrest of a female suspect for theft by deception on the Internet was announced at Bookkhalo police station by Pol. Col. Chokchai Ngarmwong, Superintendent; and Pol. Lt. Col. Piyoros Kanhasiri, Deputy Superintendent.

The suspect changed her identity several times and is also known as: Ms. Tharmmajaree Loonphong or Ratchaneepharn Loonphong or Ploy Phattarasuriyakul or Arada Wongariyasakul or Deer, age 25.

The suspect was arrested in room number 2720, 27th floor, B. building, Parkland Grand Condominium, Ratchapreuk road, Tambon Bookkhalo, Amphur Thonburi, Bangkok. She is charged with an accusation of cheating, according to the arrest warrant of Khonkaen Tambon court at J.644/2555.

Police seized the evidence of 22 Furby dolls in their boxes. Pol. Col. Chokchai revealed that a police investigation discovered Ms. Tharmmajaree had a behavior of cheating customers on the Internet with a website named “SBN Siambrandname.com.” Her website offered to sell items like iPhones, handbags, shoes, brand name clothes from foreign countries, and other expensive goods difficult to find in Thailand.

The police were first notified by a victim from Khonkaen province, who said he had been cheated on his order to buy 40 iPhones for 720,000 THB. The victim initially transferred 200,000 to the seller’s account, but did not receive any iPhones. When he tried to contact Ms. Tharmmajaree, she had changed her telephone number and her name to escape. So the victim went to notify the police at Meuang Khonkaen police station.

The detective police team of Bookkhalo police station investigated, and later discovered that the suspect was staying in the area. So the police went to arrest her with the arrest warrant.

Meanwhile, the other victims of the suspect had set up a group using the Line program to track down Ms. Thammajaree. After learning of her arrest, many victims came to the police station to see Ms. Tharmmajaree. Other victims of many provinces all over Thailand notified police of being cheated after they heard the news.

The police also notified from two victims from Nakornpathom province who ordered the Furby dolls, but got only the empty boxes. Another victim from Khonkaen had ordered a Furby doll, but got only a book inside the box that was delivered.

The 22 Furby dolls seized by police at the suspect’s arrest had been ordered by the customers who had paid her 60,000 THB. However, Ms. Tharmmajaree claimed to police that she didn’t have the time to send the dolls to the customers.

The police then made the phone calls to inform the 22 customers that they had been cheated by Ms. Tharmmajaree, and told them to notify the police. As a result, many victims came to see Ms. Tharmmajaree at Bookkhalo police station. Initially, the police suggested all her victims notify the Crime Suppression Division, because so many victims lost money in separate transactions.

The Furby dolls were seized by the police as evidence falling within the scope of fraud within the Act of Industry Standards, by offering to sell goods and industrial products without permission or an import permit. The police sent the suspect to Meuang Khonkaen police station to prosecute further according to the law.
