ID theft victim calls on CSD for justice

BANGKOK: A Nonthaburi woman has asked Crime Suppression Division (CSD) police to take action against a member of a call centre gang who she accuses of using her lost ID card to open bank accounts which were used to swindle people, a crime that led to her being arrested for a crime she did not commit.

Nicha Kiartthanapaiboon, 24, sought help yesterday (Jan 9) from the CSD to track down the person she said used her lost ID to open nine accounts with seven banks.

She submitted a video clip showing a woman opening an account at Krungthai Bank’s Lat Phrao branch as evidence.

Ms Nicha was accompanied by her elder sister Punyada Kokmas, 33, when she met CSD commander Maitree Chimcherd and deputy chief Chakrit Sawasdee.

She told them she had travelled from Nonthaburi’s Bang Yai district to the Lak Song area in Bangkok by bus on Oct 6 last year. On arrival she discovered her purse containing her ID card and other items had vanished.

She immediately advised the bank to block her ATM card and went to a nearby district office to report the loss of and apply for a replacement ID card the following day.

She later learned that on Dec 28 she had been summonsed to report to police, but was not at her house or office when police showed up to apprehend her for missing the appointment.

On Jan 6, she decided to go to the CSD after she found out that someone had used her lost ID card to open a total of nine bank accounts at seven banks. Each account showed transfers involving hundreds of thousands of baht.

At that meeting, CSD police informed her she had outstanding charges against her and was wanted on an arrest warrant.

She was handed over to Ban Tak Police in Tak province. She was initially refused bail, but was finally released the following day.

She then sought help from the CSD, again.

Ms Nicha insisted she was not involved with the call centre scammers and had reported the loss immediately to district officials so they could cancel her ID card while she obtained a new one.

Ronadol Numnonda, Bank of Thailand assistant governor, said the bank had ordered an urgent investigation into the matter.

“Financial institutions must know who their customers are and be able to authenticate their identities. These checking measures are part of Central Bank requirements which are intended to safeguard commercial banks from incidents of money laundering or other types of fraud,” said Mr Ronadol.

Ms Nicha intends to file both civil and criminal suits against the banks involved, according to her sister, Ms Punyada.

The article does not indicate that she reported it to POLICE as wrongly asserted by commentator, but clearly states she went to the "...bank to block her ATM card and went to a nearby district office to report the loss of and apply for a replacement ID card the following day."

If she had reported it Police it would have been on record and she could not have been arrested. Simple reall...

Rubbish. A Police report means nothing. When a Thai citizen loses her ID Card, she has to have a Thai citizen in good standing go with her and vouch that she is in fact a Thai citizen and verify her age and residence. Usually, one of her parents or a sibling will accompany her. The lost card is cancelled therefore null and void. Simple checks by anyone will verify that.

Is someone here not understanding that you not get a new ID card, if you not show up with a police report stating missing/lost stolen before you get a new one in Thailand?

Does such thai law fact must be spelled out, like pre chewing food?
Every one knows that.

It clearly states she DID immediately report the loss of her ID card. Paragraphs 6 and 12 refer. The devil is in the details.

I realise for some that it's mentally challenging, but if one reads the article, there is no mention of Ms Nicha reporting anything to Police of her lost or stolen card.The problem arises because the bank has not checked. Therefore she has a legitimate case against the bank and Police for wrongful arrest.

Ms Nicha is obviously not a VIP, influential, or rich person, seen the speedy arrest warrants procedure, and even locked up 1 night by police.
It is a , authority wise, shame full and incompetent affair.
A deep going investigation of her after all not legitimate arrest should take place.
The officials who are responsible should be demoted or sacked, as there is nothing to blame Ms Nicha for.
