Thai immigration in Bangkok have entrapped a gang of Nigerians and Afghans who were paying Thai women to marry men so they could get long term visas for Thailand.

imageThey advertised for Thai women on Facebook paying just 5,000 baht a time to register marriages.

Officials became suspicious and planned a sting when the gang – seven Nigerians and 2 Afghans – registered 100 people as single.

They investigated the matter and found that they arranged marriages for 100 people through Facebook.

Immigration chief Nathathorn Phrosunthorn was at the Government Complex in Chaeng Wattana, Bangkok, yesterday when the gang were all arrested.

Daily News called them a “nasty black skinned gang” in their headline.
