Sa Kaew police arrested Phayao Thukhammee, 44, at her house in Muang district at about 10pm.
The arrest was made under a court warrant issued after the villagers submitted complaints to the Interior Ministry, accusing Phayao of buying their farm trucks and other vehicles by paying them with bogus cheques.
The villagers said when they demanded their vehicles back, they learned that they had been resold.
They said the woman kept on postponing the repayments for the vehicles.
