Two British nationals have been arrested for allegedly using counterfeit ATM cards to steal more than 2 million baht from Pattaya banks.

Narayanasamy Mohan, 39, and Thevarajah Gnanaraj, 36, were apprehended Feb. 8 outside the Siam Commercial Bank on Second Road. Police escorted them back to their rooms at the Mike Beach Resort where they recovered 134 fake credit and debits cards, 22,000 baht in cash, a card skimmer and notebook computer with account information on more than 1,000 European victims.

Police said both men had entered Thailand on Feb. 6 and had been hitting Pattaya ATMs, removing more than 2 million baht, which already had been transferred to a partner in France.

    Exactly, hardly Brits.... Pity the UK hands out passports to people who then go out abuse the hospitality of countries like Thailand.
