    Job Fraud Suspect Arrested in Chon Buri

    Mr Hallikainen, a Swedish national was arrested recently because of allegedly being involved in a job scam concerning more than 100 Thais.
    According to authorities, the Swede man opened an employment business 3 years ago. He promised a lot of Thais that they will be employed in Sweden. The complainants were expecting to be working in the agriculture industry of Sweden but when they arrived there they were abandoned by the suspect. The victims contacted the Swedish authorities to help them to return to Thailand. The suspect's passport was also cancelled to help in finding him. He was later arrested in Chon Buri. He admitted his crime and he confessed that there were also some Thais who were involved in the scam. The authorities are trying to track them down now.

    It is difficult since they are promised a good work in Sweden. Sweden is pretty safe i think maybe if they go to Dubai we have to worry.
