Cosmetic Surgeon Duped Out of Over a Million US

Crime Suppression Division police have arrested a man who posed as a high-society businessman and allegedly cheated a cosmetic surgeon out of over a million US.

Mr Wasant Thiamsiri, 43, was arrested on Tuesday in a building in the Chong Nonsee area of Bangkok’s Yannawa district by Crime Suppression Division police armed with a warrant dated Nov 17, 2021.

Police Maj Gen Montree said the arrest was the result of a complaint made by a cosmetic surgeon in Bangkok.

The woman claimed that Mr Wasant courted her in 2017 and claimed to be a high society businessman. After falling in love with him, she began dating him.

Mr Wasant persuaded the cosmetic surgeon to invest in luxury condos in the Pathumwan and Ratchathewi areas, where they could both reside together, according to the CSD chief. The condominiums were paid for in instalments of US$475,000 through Mr Wasant.
