BANGKOK – October 17th, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; – At the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau, Police Major General Thitirat Nongharnphithak, (who is the Deputy Commissioner), together with Police Colonel Saroch Soonsap, (the Deputy Commander) and Police Colonel Somkuan Pheungsap, (the Superintendent of Prawet Police Station), made an important crime investigation statement. This concerned the arresting of Mr. “J” (alias), aged 18 years and Mr. Suthep Wernkhoonthod aged 19-years, when on October 12, 2013, a man named Mr. Somchana Supphachatworakhun, aged 48 years, (the victim), had notified the police at Prawet Police Station that a large sum of money was stolen from his bank account at the Kasikorn Thai Bank to the value of around 1.8 million Thai Baht. When the police investigated this case they found that the money belonging to the victim was transferred to the bank accounts of the two above-named defendants. The CCTV records of the incident clearly showed that they were involved, so the police investigation team immediately went to arrest them at a community in an area controlled by the Prawet Police Station.

Pol. Col. Somkuan said that Mr. “J” had used the victim’s identity card to inform the DTAC mobile phone network that he wanted to sequestrate the victim’s mobile phone number. He asked to use the former phone number so he could get the mobile phone number of the victim then he used the SIM card and the new ATM card to let his friends in this gang transfer the money of the victim to a newly opened account which Mr. “J” controlled. He opened the new bank account and the members in this gang each got paid a hiring commission of for 1,000 THB for their part in the crime. Now the case is progressing further, with investigations to arrest the rest of the members of this gang, who will all be prosecuted according to the law.

The victim, Mr. Somchana, said that he did not know how the defendant got his identity card and when he contacted the bank he asked them about the security system. However, the bank officers informed him that the CCTV system didn’t record the number of times for money transfers and how much money was transferred each time, so the bank didn’t find anything unusual. Therefore, Mr. Somchana, (the victim), wishes to warn the people who use E-Banking system, to be very careful and he would like the bank or the mobile phone network concerned to have more verification measures to protect the financial safety of their users.
