Thai Police Arrest Russian and Uzbekistani Wanted by FBI for Bt1 Billion Online Banking Scam
BANGKOK – The Royal Thai Police have arrested a Russian man and an Uzbekistani woman who were wanted by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation for having allegedly stolen some Bt1 billion from over 50 accounts in several countries.
Tourist Police Commander Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakpal told the press conference that the Russian man was arrested in Pattaya where he has been running three or four firms renting yachts to tourists. The Uzbekistani woman was arrested at a hotel on Koh Chang where she has been working.
The FBI has traced the transactions and found that they were wired to Thailand so the FBI sought help from the Immigration Bureau to arrest the two suspects.
