A Thai woman has gone to the police to say that someone created a fake profile in her name on a popular dating site.
Wiphada Lijanporn or “Pang” who is a web master at a Khae Rai company in Bangkok told the cops that late on Monday night she received a call from a man who had seen her picture and mobile number on Thaiflirting.com.
Pang said she had never gone on the site let alone created a profile there.
She investigated and found out that someone had lifted her pictures from Facebook and created a profile in the English written name of Pangtoleamak1.
She was listed as 27, living in Nonthaburi, interested in men aged 40-60 who likes to dress sexily. It was hoped that men would find her attractive.
The cops contacted the tech experts on the force who discovered the website is based in Germany and efforts were made to have the profile removed.
They said that people creating such profiles could face two months in jail and fines of 200,000 baht.
Wiphada warned Thai women to be on the lookout for nasty people doing such things and to always report incidents like this..
INN did not report why she may have been targeted in this way.
Thaivisa notes that the term “toleamak” probably relates to Thai words (ตอแหลมาก torlae maak) that means “bull**** aplenty” or “serious liar” indicating that the victim may have been targeted by someone upset with her.
Police are trying to find out who created the profile.
