Six fraudsters who set up a pseudo-investment company have been arrested in Thailand at the request of Taiwan. In total, more than 500 people became their victims. Under the guise of investing, fraudsters accepted cryptocurrency from the population, after which they stopped responding to their victims.
Six laptops and 47 mobile phones were seized during the arrest. Police said other charges were the formal reason for the arrest – four were suspected of working without a permit, one had an expired visa and another was involved in drug trafficking.
In the near future, fraudsters are planned to be declared non-grata and deported to Taiwan, where they will already be formally charged with cryptocurrency fraud.
