• Fake messenger makes millions by double charging customers.

    A fake messenger was successfully arrested after he made millions by double charging clients with the same bill. His reasoning to the police is because he has 4 wives, and he needs a lot of money to take care of them. The Crime Suppression Division Police worked with the Khlong Luang Police in Pathumthani Province and successfully arrested Tanongsak Ruengsiri 49 years old a local Win motorbike driver.

    Tanongsak is arrested under the power of an arrest warrant issued by the Pathumthani provincial Court no.209/62 dated 30 April 2019 under charges of document forgery, using forged documents, and fraud. He was arrested in front of a Mini Big C branch located in Rattanakosin 200 Years, this is near Future Park and is 30 minutes away from Don Mueng Airport.

    Tanongsak worked as a messenger for a metal company for about 10 years. Throughout the years he gained the absolute trust and was responsible for collecting payments from customers. He abused the trust by making 2 photocopies of the receipt. When collecting the money, he would double charge the clients and put the money in his pocket. According to evidence consisting of printed receipts, the amount of damage is about 500,000 THB, but the actual damage including charges with no receipts of proof is estimated to be 1 to 2 million THB.

    The company realized what Tanongsak was doing when one day he went to collect a bill from a customer but the actual customer wasn’t there, a relative was at the shop. When the relative saw the bill he needed to call the customer to confirm before making the payment. The catch was Tanongsak had already collected the payment from the customer. The customer then decided to call the metal company and asked them why are they trying to double charge him.

    The company started an investigation that discovered Tanonsak’s actions. They filed a report that leads to the arrest. The suspect admitted to his actions fully at the time of the arrest. He stated to the police that he needed to do this, he had 4 wives that he needed to take care of. His newest wife asked him for some money to invest in a beauty salon shop that didn’t work out as planned. This is when he had to get an extra job as a Win motorbike driver. The Khlong Luang Police Station will be prosecuting his case accordingly.
