Thailand may be in the midst of political turmoil but the Anti-Money Laundering Office is still on track. The AMLO scored a victory yesterday in publishing details of more than 200 suspicious bank accounts. The accounts appear to have been opened in connection with a large-scale fraud.
The scam looks like a boiler room set up using a nation-wide campaign to contact potential victims. The con-artists convinced people to cough up cash, for unknown reasons, and send it to one of the 203 bank accounts uncovered in the AMLO probe. The accounts were all set up by a group of smurfs, probably unconnected to the fraudsters.
Contact the AMLO for the list of accounts.
