More than 4,000 victims have reported the alleged “Nas App” fraud.
Victims first reported the fraud to the CCIB on September 4.
The app allegedly tricked victims into investing in a Ponzi scheme.
The “Nas App” claimed to be a middleman for trading stocks, gold and bitcoin. The CCIB initially expected that more than 10,000 victims could have suffered total losses of 6 billion baht.
CCIB commissioner Pol Lt-General Kornchai Klayklueng revealed that the first 20 victims who reported the alleged fraud had lost 9 million baht in total.
The CCIB created a QR code for other victims to report the case. The agency said 4,282 victims who had suffered total damage of 590 million baht had reported the case so far.
Kornchai said that the company was registered by a 23-year-old man named Pakawat (surname was not revealed). The “Nas App” case could be as big as the “Forex 3d” case.
Kornchai added that the CCIB had contacted the Department of Special Investigation and the Anti-Money Laundering Office to investigate the money trail.
