In Nakhon Si Thammarat, police are looking for the woman’s assistant mayor’s home after discovering that they are connected to a large-scale Chinese call-scam network.

Rewadee Teepapaiboon, 51, and her child Athitaya, 23, were found dead in a housing estate in the southwestern province on Monday morning after police and prosecutors conducted a search of her home.

Ms Rewadee, her daughter and her father Lin Dunyang, 62, were at significant. Earlier, authorities summoned Ms Rewadee to embrace costs in relation to a Chinese fraud group that targeted Thai, Chinese, Russian and Chinese patients.

The charges included common scams, computer violence, unlawful assembly and participation in a multinational legal organisation.

In attacks on four areas in Nakhon Si Thammarat in March, officers allegedly detained the Taiwanese online fraud group, according to Pol Maj Gen Wiwat Khamchamnan, assistant chief of the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau. The gang rented properties from Ms Rewadee, a deputy governor of tambon Chandee in the Chawang area.

The group included about 90 defendants and in the past attacks authorities seized 192 computers, 854 cellular phones and SIM cards, 22 routers and 342 animal banks accounts.

While Ms. Rewadee’s daughter was a front company for the Chinese scam gang, Pol Maj Gen Wiwat claimed that her husband paid for the scam gang’s phones and computers.

In Monday’s raids, police arrested four suspected accomplices, a man and three women, in Nakhon Si Thammarat and Surat Thani. They were suspected of overseeing the scam network’s mule accounts.

The male suspect, who had numerous phones and routers, was taken into custody at the Chin Heng Hotel in the Chawang district.
