A woman has been arrested for using the stolen ID card of Ms Nicha Kiatthanapaibul to open bank accounts to be used to keep money transferred from customers duped by a call centre scam gang.
An informed police said that police from the division 1 of Metropolitan Police Bureau on Saturday apprehended a suspect, identified only as Ms Paveena, for allegedly using the stolen ID card to open bank accounts on behalf of the call centre gang.
Ms Paveena reportedly told police interrogators that she was hired a man, identified as Simon, to open five bank accounts with Ms Nicha's stolen ID card in return for 10,000 baht, but was actually paid only 4,000 baht.
After the interrogation by metropolitan police, Ms Paveena was later taken to Huay Kwang police station to be identified by other suspects earlier arrested by the police before she was escorted back to Metropolitan Police Bureau for further interrogation.
