The Royal Thai Police, RTP, again warned not to fall for the great offers on Facebook.
The pl. RTP spokesman Colonel Siriwat Deepor cited the case of a man named Peerasilp (surname not listed) who was arrested this week on charges of fraud and violation of the Computer Crime Act.
Peerasilp had a page called “Here Ball Rod Ban” (Mr Ball’s Motorhome) through which he allegedly sold cars, motorcycles, tractors, combines and even livestock. However, his customers would not have received any of the items they paid for. According to the police, the man duped people for millions of baht.
Siriwat also cited another previous case when another man was arrested for allegedly selling luxury cars and other cars at a very low price and claiming they were legal. However, the police found out when checks showed that the registrations did not exist.
Colonel Siriwat said that buyers should first check that the Facebook page is trustworthy and if they buy vehicles online, they should make sure that the vehicles’ ownership documents are genuine.
