They were offering long term visas with no necessity to leave or re-enter the kingdom. 

Also arrested was a go-between from Myanmar by the name of Chai Paeng.

He has given evidence that customers paid 18,000 baht for the visa in two installments.

The case is at least the third fake visa agent bust reported by Thaivisa in the last couple of weeks.
