Sutthipong said police searched the condominium after two
Nigerians were arrested last week on charges of conducting a romance
scam in Thailand. Information provided by the two men prompted police to
conduct the search.
The immigration officers found 19 Nigerians living at the
condominium. Six of them were found to have unlawfully entered the
country and five of them had overstayed their visas.
Sutthipong said two other Nigerians were suspected of being involved in the romance scam.
Police also seized 15 passbooks, seven notebooks, 12 phones, one tablet and nine passports from the suspects.

Sutthipong said the two romance-scam suspects also had Facebook
accounts in other names and used Western men’s photographs as their
profile pictures.
