Korean arrested pattaya one march 30 2024

On March 29, 2024, immigration police made an announcement regarding the apprehension of a 51-year-old South Korean man named Mr. Oh. He was a wanted individual by South Korean authorities for fraud allegations, leading to the issuance of a red notice by the International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO). Mr. Oh, identified as the head of a call center gang involved in scamming victims, had operated from China, employing phone calls and text messages to deceive individuals in South Korea.

Using various deceptive tactics, Mr. Oh was able to swindle 6 victims within a span of two weeks, amassing a total of 200 million won, equivalent to approximately 150,000 USD. Following the issuance of an arrest warrant by South Korean authorities, Mr. Oh fled the country and sought refuge in Pattaya. Cooperation between South Korea and Thai authorities, facilitated by the Foreign Affairs Department, led to his capture.

Mr. Oh was discovered in a residential area in Nong Prue sub-district, Bang Lamung district, Chonburi province. Initially charged with visa overstay, he was taken to the Pattaya City Police Station for further inquiry before the extradition process to South Korea commences.
