Four held for credit card forgery | Thaiger

PHUKET: Four people were arrested yesterday on charges of possessing forged credit cards.

The four are Tanapol Detpalit, 45, from Ang Thong Province, Ubonrat Pinket, 47, from Ayudhaya, Pornpan Poolpakdee, 25, from Phuket, and Wong Mun Bin, 27, from Malaysia.

At a press conference, Deputy Commissioner of the Central Investigation Bureau Pol Maj Gen Suchat Muankaew explained, “They were arrested at a restaurant in Rassada on charges of possessing forged electronic cards.

“They were also found in possession of 40 credit cards, seven mobile phones, four gold necklaces, a gold bracelet, six gold rings, a locket, five small gilded Buddha images, two car stereo systems, two bankbooks and a new Toyota Vios car.

“All of the property was bought from shops in Phuket, using fake credit cards.”

All four admitted to the offenses, and were taken into custody to await trial.

Gen Suchat added, “Owners and salespeople of shops in Phuket must look at credit cards very carefully. The fakes these people had look very much like the real thing.

Also at the press conference were the National Commander of the Tourist Police, Pol Maj Gen Panya Maman, and the Commander of the Phuket Provincial Police, Pol Maj Gen Decha Budnampeth.
