Police arrested a Frenchman armed with 97 bogus ATM cards and a Google map of automated teller machines in Pattaya before he could pull a single baht from any of them.
Anthony Marc Chritstophe Claude Thull, 23, was captured standing in front of a Siam Commercial Bank ATM in North Pattaya July 7 after an SCB fraud officer alerted police to counterfeit card usage.

Police said Thull confessed to getting the copied cards, with numbers stolen from French citizens, and heading to Pattaya to seek his fortune. None of the cards worked, however.
