Phone scam foiled

Thai authorities raided the headquarters of an illegal telephone operation in Aranya-prathet, Thailand on June 14, at the request of the Cambodian authorities. Oak Bora, the provincial head of posts and telecommunications in Banteay Meanchey province, said a Thai man was held for questioning, and 30 Sim cards and other equipment was taken from the makeshift office. The scam directed incoming international calls from government phone gateways to a cheaper, privately-owned line. The scam cost the government around $1 million.
