Victims in Bitcoin swindle go to Thai tech police

Some 30 representatives of a group of 140 victims yesterday went to file a complaint with Thailand’s tech police after they lost 42 million baht in a Bitcoin swindle. 

The complainants invested in the crypto-currency through a website called “cryptominingfarm” run by Lifetime Technology Co Ltd and its owner Phimongkhon Thaophiban. 

Some investors put in as little as 1,000 baht – others invested millions. 

One of them was actor Johnson Thewin who said he had done legitimate Bitcoin investments before and believed the company as they had offices in Muang Thong Thani and Chiang Mai. 

After getting good returns he invested more then lost it all. 

It slowly dawned on the investors that they had been conned through the middle of last year. 

Thailand’s tech police arm are investigating after the complainants went to the national police HQ in Bangkok on Monday.
