Card-trick couple “stole 100,000 baht’

PHUKET TOWN: A temporary bank employee has been arrested for using a customer’s credit card to make purchases and ATM withdrawals totaling more than 100,000 baht. The customer, Kanyarat Pitikulsathit, went to police when her statement from the Phuket branch of the Bangkok Bank included transactions she knew nothing about. On Thursday, police arrested Kriangsak Supap, 28, and his wife Bussarin Burinkul in their home on Sakdidej Rd, Tambon Wichit. Pol Maj Peerapan Meemak, of Phuket Town Police Station, explained that the ATM card had been placed on a table in the bank to await collection by K. Kanyarat. When she failed to collect it, Kriangsak, who had been employed by the bank for two months, on a temporary basis, simply took it. The couple have been charged with theft and fraud.
