Thailand – Foreigner arrested

Via: The Nation

Police presented Smith Nnamadi Zuckerberg 34 at a press conference yesterday along with a video clip showing him taking the cash from the 23-year-old victim.

Nnamadi claimed that he had taken the money on behalf of a British man named Joe Henry Zuckerberg who the victim had been having a romantic relationship with via Facebook.

The victim told police that Henry had promised to bring Bt3 million for her dowry but could not afford to pay Bt321 560 in fees so he needed her help. The victim had sent him Bt74,560 ($2,300 USD) but Henry said he needed more which made her suspicious (So, I guy you met on Facebook, offering to pay you a $93,000 USD dowry, didn’t make you suspicious?)  and she turned to the police.

Hence police set up a sting operation at a local mall where the Nigerian suspect had come to pick up the money Police investigation found that Nnamadi had conspired with other foreigners to lure Thai women who wanted foreign husbands via MSN Facebook and other websites.

Police have launched a manhunt for his accomplices.
