Thais in Sadao and Hat Yai districts of Songkhla thought they were onto something good when they invested in cheap gold on Facebook.

Interest was also offered if the gold was not delivered within 10 days.

Many people invested and some got a profit in the early days.

But then like other such scams the money dried up and the funds transferred to the fraudsters were a one way street.

Yesterday 40 people went to Klong Nge police to jointly register a complaint.

The con is expected to have defrauded hundreds of around 200 million baht.
