Police are considering filing lese majeste charge against the fraudster who allegedly cheated about 2,000 people who bought package tour to Japan during Songkran festival from her phoney company, WealthEver, and were stranded at Suvarnabhumi international airport on Tuesday night.

Pol Lt-Gen Thitirath Nongharnpitak, commissioner of the Central Investigation Bureau, said Wednesday that the suspect, Ms Pasit Arinlapit, alias Sinsae Shogun, managing director of WealthEver, claimed that a special person from the Palace presided over an event for her direct sale company. He said police were pondering whether such remark by Ms Pasit might constitute a lese majeste or not.

Ms Pasit was arrested by police in Ranong on Wednesday and immediately flown to Bangkok and then whisked to the Crime Suppression Division for questioning.

She was detained by an order issued by the National Council for Peace and Order under Section 44 of the interim constitution.

CSD police have so far questioned 700 victims of the package tour cheat by WealthEver which, according to police, is legally non-existent because it was not registered as a direct sale company nor as a tour company.

Ms Pasit herself has changed names and surnames more than ten times. There are six fraud cases pending against her and three arrest warrants have been slapped against her.
