• Couples fall victim to Wedding Organizer

    A total of 12 couples went to file reports with the Crime Suppression Division Police on 15 November 2019 against a Wedding Organizer Company. The couples made payments to the company that left them stranded without a wedding. Many had to cancel their wedding plans and find a new wedding organizer.

    Victims stated that the wedding organizer uses the names of 3 companies including 1. Bua the Wedding, 2. Bua Flora, and 3. Heartist the Wedding. Many of the victims found the company through Facebook and at wedding fairs. The organizer meets up with the couples then takes them to venues and other planning processes. The couples are then shown past weddings organized by the company and are offered good deals. The combination of a trustable company with a good history and a great value deal gained the victim’s trust. The couples will then pay a deposit as a booking fee. When the date arrives, the organizer disappears with the deposit money and in some cases, the couples receive a wedding that is nothing as agreed. There are a total of over 50 couples who fell victim to the organizer.

    Victims stated that they decided to come file a report with the police for 2 main reasons. The organizer won’t pay back the deposit money even though it’s the company’s fault, this is showing signs of fraud and deception. Furthermore, many of the couples had to re-schedule or cancel their wedding that costs even more damage. The second reason is to protect other couples from falling victim to the company. The only thing the victims wanted from the company was a happy wedding day as planned. With their actions, the victim’s dreams are destroyed by the wedding organizer.

  • Phuket ‘obscene’ photos couple to meet police

    Pictures of a couple in allegedly obscene photos taken in Phuket Town are to meet police after their pictures went viral on social media on Thursday.

    A Thai Facebook page which is translated as “Want to be famous; here we go” on Thursday shared photos of a Facebook user with a message reading: “Here we come, school cosplay. What do you think?”

    Photos show a couple wearing costumes similar to school uniforms on a motorbike in a famous soi in the old town.

    The Phuket Provincial Deputy Commander Col Sermpan Sirikong said: “We acknowledge that these photos have been shared in Phuket social media groups. Many people say this is not proper or appropriate behaviour.

  • Find the killers of high-school buddies, families tell police

    Shooter, likely a hitman, was waiting for the two victims in parking lot.


    The grief-stricken relatives of two young people who were shot dead in front of tourists in broad daylight at a parking lot of a Chon Buri tourist attraction on Sunday, called on Tuesday for the authorities to quickly arrest the killers.

    Kalasin native Paweena Namuangrak, 20, was shot four times and her 20-year-old high school friend Anantachai Jaritram three times. They died side by side next to a car that they and two other friends had rented in Pattaya City for the day to visit the Sattaphip district’s Khao Chi Chan attraction to make merit and celebrate Paweena’s birthday on Saturday.

    A police probe has so far found that the shooter – suspected to be a hitman – was waiting in a white sedan at the parking lot before shooting the two victims and speeding away. Their bodies were transported on Monday night to their Kalasin hometown for separate funeral rites.

    During a prayer in the morning for Paweena, her 41-year-old grief-stricken mother Wanpen Namuangrak recalled that her daughter had dropped out of Udon Thani Rajabhat University in early 2016 to work at a night entertainment venue in Phuket, where a neighbor also worked, in order to help with the family’s expenses. Paweena later moved to work in Nakhon Pathom. Wanpen didn’t know if Paweena had any conflicts with anyone. Anantachai was Paweena’s schoolmate who went to work together with

    Paweena, she said. “When I heard that she and Anantachai were shot dead at Khao Chi Chan, my heart broke,” she said.

    “I still don’t know what to say about how my loving daughter who had helped earn income to support our family would find an end like that. I want police to bring my daughter’s killers to justice as soon as possible.”

    Grief also lingered at the house of Anantachai, whose relatives declined to comment other than to say they wanted police to bring the killers to justice. The cremation of Anantachai was scheduled for August 1, with Paweena’s cremation on August 2.
