Police found that the serial number on the genuine US$100 banknote was also on the fake US$100 banknotes she was caught with.

“I used to share my room with an Indian man about 25 years old called Gaja Singh, who used the nickname ‘Mr Ja’,” Ms Lar Lee Yar Day Ve told police, giving her account in well-spoken Thai language.

“About three months ago a Thai woman who we knew only as “Ms Jim”, who was about 38 years old and worked as a snack seller in Patong took me and Mr Ja to Phang Nga to buy 18 fake B1,000 banknotes and 36 fake US$100 banknotes,” she said.

Ms Lar Lee Yar Day Ve admitted that all the fake banknotes were hers and she confessed to the charges against her, reported police.
