What exactly is Big Joke’s brief? Now he’s arresting Thai fraudsters

The Thai immigration Facebook page reported on the arrest of two Thai nationals in an online scam involving fraud connected to investment in equipment used for spa facials.

The arrests continued the trend of immigration chief Surachate Hakparn’s involvement in crimes of all sorts, not just those concerning immigration matters.

This trend started when Maj Gen Surachate – known as Big Joke in the media – was assistant chief at the tourist police.

The immigration Facebook page that Patsaraporn Chotsingsiri and Phiphatchai Jongjitphaisan had been arrested.

Patsaraporn advertised on Facebook for investors in a facial spa equipment business.

When investors put in 30,000 baht they received 3,500 baht interest in the first week and more soon after.

But when larger investments were made the fraudsters disappeared with all the money.

Losses amounted to 30 million baht and there are thought to be more than 100 victims.

So far only ten have complained to police.
