Jiratpisit “Boom” Jaravijit taken into police custody on Thursday.

 

BANGKOK — An actor linked to a massive cryptocurrency scam was denied bail Friday as police allege his fugitive brother masterminded the lucrative con.

 

Jiratpisit “Boom” Jaravijit, 27, has been held at the Criminal Court after his arrest yesterday at a Bangkok shopping mall where he was filming. The Crime Suppression Division said it was seeking arrest warrants for five or six additional suspects they say conspired to trick a Finnish businessman into investing Bitcoin worth almost 800 million baht in several shell companies.
