Thai TV Channel 7 featured the arrest of two Indian nationals who were ripping off exchanges on Koh Samui.

 

The Indians would bring 10 $100 dollar bills to be exchanged for Thai money. One would then ask to recount the US dollars and take out two from the bundle and surreptitiously replace them with one dollar bills.

 

Distraction was provided by the accomplice who would be next in the queue.

 

Passports shown on TV revealed them to be Chunnu Khan, 44 from West Bengal and an older man called just Bashir from Kamarhati.

 

Both men are in the custody of Bo Phut police.
