BANGKOK, Aug 28 — Police from the Technology Crime Suppression Division (TCSD) arrested Nigerian Stanley Onyekwere and Thai Anchulee Siriwong at their rented room in Bangkok’s Bueng Kum district as their gang had used emails to lure a Taiwanese steel company into transferring about Bt4.6 million baht to their bank accounts.

The suspects admitted to the fraud and identified many accomplices.

Police carried a court warrant to make the arrest and are hunting other accomplices.

TCSD Commander Pol Maj Gen Siripong Timula warned business operators to verify information before making any financial transaction with an online business partner.
