Pattaya police announced the arrest on Sunday of a 39 year old Iranian national on a charge of exchanging a banknote that he knew to be a fake. 

 

On Friday Ali Ismaili Hossanabadi (name transliterated from Thai) had gone to an exchange booth at the end of Soi Diamond Hotel and got 17,540 baht for a 500 Euro note. 

 

Only when Saichon Punkor, 40, checked again was the fake discovered. 

 

CCTV soon led police to Ali who said that he had got the note through a business in his homeland. 

 

They didn't believe this, said 77Jowo, and he was charged and detained.
