‘Golden-tongued Keng’ arrested along with four other call centre scammers

Police have arrested the alleged leader of a notorious call-centre gang, known as “Golden-tongued Keng”, and four members of the gang that operated in several countries.

Again, the deputy tourist police chief Pol Maj Gen Surachete Hakparn was behind the major arrest.

Surachete says police tracked down and arrested 41 year old Natthawat Simbida, alias ‘Keng the Golden Tongue’, in Phetchabun’s Nam Nao district on Tuesday. He says Natthawat was an “idol” of call-centre scammers and got his alias because of his ability to persuade victims.

The four other suspects were identified as Jintana Promnoi, Kanong Imkhunthong, Surapol Supcharoen and Benchawan Plaisuan.
