Alleged international fraudster caught at Phuket airport | Thaiger

PHUKET: Bangkok Immigration Officers at Phuket International Airport on Tuesday detained a 55-year-old Chinese national who is believed to be behind a multi-million-baht international fraud.

Liu Benyue was taken into custody at the airport by Bangkok Immigration and Chinese authorities.

“We found Mr Liu in front of the main terminal waiting to pick up his son,” said Assawin Naksawat, Chief of the Immigration Office at the airport.

“He is wanted by Chinese authorities for his alleged involvement in a scam that has swindled customers out of more than 26 million baht,” Col Assawin said.

Mr Liu is accused of setting up a clothing company to import cheap clothing products from Cambodia and then failing to deliver the goods to customers.

The Shandong Provincial Court in China has issued a warrant for Mr Liu.
