    It seems that in every important russian ‘s arrest,DSI is involved or acting.
    As I think to be naif,can anyone explain to me why,in this kind of operations, Pattaya Police doesn t
    work alone or pre-emptive ? Thank you.

    Why make such a big to do about this, other than the fact that he is a foreigner. Don’t get me wrong I have no sympathy for the Russians. However there are tens of thousands of Thai doing the exact same thing across the country. I don’t see the office of the Interior Ministry doing a photo opportunity when and if the Thai’s are arrested !

      Your stepping in on the Thai’s business. That’s the reason for the write up and arrest. You can’t get a work permit for a job a Thai can do.

      So maybe the Thais will benefit from some good old fashion loan shark competition. After all there does seem to be plenty of interest profit to warrant competition with the Thai mafia. Maybe the Ruskies could offer sales like 59% a month.

      The war that would insure may help rid the Thais of both groups.

    What’s the big deal? Thailand loves Russians. On arrival Russians are made honorary Thai citizens. With the ability to work and scam their fellow countrymen. Guess this Russian didn’t get his free work-permit-on-arrival when he went through immigration.

    @Phoenix: For your information, the DSI-Eastern Region, under the skillful leadership of its Director (Khun Prawit Chaiboudaeng) has been tasked to clean-up Foreign criminals operating on Thai’ soil. The recent arrest of an Italian criminal in the North of Thailand; the recent raid on another Italian Boat-Builder swindler in Pattaya and the rolling-up of this Russian-based lending scam are just a (very) few examples of their effectiveness.

    The DSI, contrary to popular belief, are doing a sterling job in their attempts at eradicating these Transnational criminals, who are giving the rest of us a bad name too.

    Great job Khun Prawit & his Team !

      @ George J. Jr. Thanks for your kindly explication. Yes,I red about the Italian boat-builder in Pattaya,but I missed of the other in north.May ask you also about that one ??
      By the way,I agree with you on sterling job do DSI,and hoping Pattaya Police will take it like an exemple. Regards.

      A very small-time money lender trying to make a few bob… not quite Al Capone is he? The lad can’t even afford a pair of socks! :-)

      • JohnP

        60% per month works out at over 28,000% per year APR. Hardly small time!

      • Maverick

        You must be one of these cringeworthy fashion victims who wears socks with flip flops and sandals!

  • John

    Perhaps they should lock the victims away too. They cannot be normal if they take a credit with 60 percent interest rate a month. There must be a lot wrong with them.

  • khun Thai

    YES! We need more Russians in Thailand…

    20 years in Bangkok Hilton and this P.O.S. will learn the lesson…

      That simply won’t happen I’m afraid!

    @pattaya guy…thais are loaning money in their own country to their own people.wrong,yes,but this baby faced potato head should not be in pattaya in the first place.

    It always amazes me how quickly operations such as this pop up within a group of people when they get to a new place. Tourists in need of some quick cash to extend their stay go instead of going back home to their dread existenses seek out these guys and borrow some money from them. Of course the tourist doesn’t have any ways of making money or legitametly borrowing it. So this often rolls on into crime to pay back the lender.

  • weasel

    @ gk too right mate.who would want to go back to russia.then again russians and russia deserve each other.

  • Alex

    Russian police wants to see him too bcs of the same crimes in Russia.
