BANGKOK, Jan 19 — Thailand’s Tourist Police Division arrested three Taiwanese nationals involved in operating a call centre scam syndicate perpetrating their crimes on residents of Taiwan and mainland China.

The three suspects–identified as Chen Jui Lin, Kuo Yu Heng and Yen Yi Chun–were arrested at an apartment in the eastern province of Chonburi’s Bang Lamung distric, southeast of the Thai capital.

The arrest came after a victim informed police that the syndicate had deceived him to transfer Bt500,000 via an automated teller machine (ATM) to them.

The police tracked down and arrested the suspects, seizing five ATM cards, 56 bank passbooks, 10 mobile phones and ATM slips with total transactions of Bt3 million.
