British fraud gangs in Thailand – Pattaya, Porsches and prostitutes

Living the high life in Pattaya whilst funding the Porsches, champagne and girls with money stolen by cloning people’s credit cards. That was the life of just one of several Brits covered in a The Sun report.

A vicious turf war between British gangs over stolen millions burst into the open last year when one was gunned down in cold blood.

39 year old British citizen Tony Kenway raked in millions running his own clone fraud operation in Thailand while managing the computer servers for other outfits. But in a battle over £200,000 of stolen money the IT whizz, from Southampton UK, was shot in the head in a gangland-style hit whilst sitting in his red Porsche in Pattaya, in January last year.

He’s not the only Brit running lucrative clone businesses in Thailand and around the region. The Sun (UK) has a full report about the high life and the high risk, mostly ending up in strife, or dead.

In another part of the report… “Investigative journalist Andrew Drummond, who was forced to leave Thailand after years exposing the British fraud gangs, told how the criminals work hand-in-hand with corrupt authorities.

He explained the murder of Kenway was the latest in a string of gangland attacks which have included murders, kidnappings and corrupt police operations against rivals.

Mr Drummond also told how the clone fraud operations work across borders and crooks drive car-fulls of cash between Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia.

One alleged clone fraud boss has even bought huge leisure sites in Bangkok, Thailand, and property in Amsterdam with cash suspected of being ripped off from savers in the UK and elsewhere.”
