The victim, 20-year-old Manfah Meemak, listed an iPhone 6s for sale through a Facebook group and was contacted yesterday (July 26) by a user, under the name ‘Mo May’ and with the profile photo of a young woman.

Ms Manfah agreed a price of B5,000 for the phone and arranged to meet 'Mo' outside Srisoonthorn temple at 7:40pm yesterday evening.

A man, described as looking around 20-30 years old, met Ms Manfah outside the temple, checked over the phone and handed her five B,1000 notes before driving away. Ms Manfah recognised the notes as fake after the man had left.

Miss Manfah subsequently filed a report at Thalang Police Station at 8:50pm.
