Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Chinese loan-shark call center raided in Pattaya
4 November 2018
Pattaya immigration police arrested 13 Chinese nationals on charges of working without a permit in a loan-shark call center aimed at extorting mainland victims.

Officers stormed the rented house in Nongprue’s Moo 6 village Oct. 24 where they found the Chinese living there working on 13 computers and 28 mobile phones to contact compatriots back home via chat applications.

Police said they worked as debt collectors for a mainland loan-sharking ring and brought in about 12 million baht a month from 2,000 victims. If anyone did not transfer cash to their accounts, the call center dispatched gangsters to threaten the borrowers.
