A 27-year-old man from Guinea-Bissau was arrested for allegedly forging documents to obtain a Thai visa and aiding a romance scam, said acting immigration police head Maj-Gen Surachate Hakpal.
The suspect, Alex Emanuel, entered Thailand by bus at Songkhla and avoided the authorities.
He then posted his passport to a Thai, identified only as Joseph who claimed to have a friend at the Immigration Office, and paid Bt20,000 for a visa, said Surachate.
The suspect reportedly helped a romance scam gang and was paid 5 per cent of the profits.
