Thai police detained six Taiwanese in Bangkok. According to the investigation, they deceived more than 500 people through a fraudulent cryptocurrency investment scheme, according to the Bangkok Post.
In addition, the detainees are accused of illegally conducting exchange business without a license. Four of them were also charged with work without a permit, a fifth with drug-related crimes, and a sixth had an expired visa.
The two detainees were wanted on the basis of arrest warrants issued in Taiwan.
During the search, laptops and mobile phones were seized from the group.
Recall that from April 1, 2022, Thai regulators recommended that businesses exclude the acceptance of payments in digital assets.
