The stranger also showed him the certificates and insisted he would give him a full refund if they were fake.

 

Mr Suwat then took the amulets to a professional in Bangkok and Chonburi who confirmed that they were all fake. He then called the stranger who he bought the amulets off who wouldn’t answer his phone.
