Thai immigration officials have arrested 24 Chinese nationals who were running an alleged cryptocurrency scam call center in the Rama III neighborhood of Bangkok. According to an official announcement on Dec. 2, the Immigration Bureau of the Royal Thai Police arrested 24 individuals, seized 61 laptops, 424 mobile phones and several routers.
Employees would work shifts from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The alleged scammers would lure Chinese investors to buy Bitcoin, ostensibly fudging rates in order to make a profit.
Local news daily Chiang Rai Times states that the Immigration Bureau has busted a number of call center scams operated by Chinese nationals. Earlier today, Immigration police raided a stock speculation scheme run by Chinese teenagers. Police are still in pursuit of the operation's organizer who, like the head of the purported Bitcoin scam, is in possession of the employees' passports.
In cryptocurrency exchanges, acceptable trading pairs for cryptocurrencies are either the country's fiat currency, the baht, or cryptocurrencies which have been approved by the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission.
