To be honest with those figures that were bandied around with the arrests I wouldnt be suprised at all if some expat members here might have been burnt.

These ponsi schemes rely also on friends and colleagues of a committed investor to keep it going etc. Recommending new investors.

It cant just be all gullible Thais surely.

the guy is a Thai national and I told him it was a scam when he first talked about it (he got mad about it), I had to call his brother to tell him the police will be coming for him. he didn't believe me when I first told him, and he didn't believe me when I told them the police will be coming.

what do I know? I keep my money in the bank or my pocket :oops:

I actually don't think the topic "Investments" is suitable for a discussion forum like ours, yet alone as a sponsored topic. Even a legitimate company offering investments can, and do come unstuck from time to time and the onus for the loss could be blamed on UM for publishing the advise.Plus we are seeing with the Bangkok forum that some seemingly independent companies offering various services are in actual fact not independent but share some connection with the forum . WE really don't want to get into that sort of operation or even raise the suspicion of involvement do we? I am sure I wasn't alone in my suspicion that was the case with this topic until UM cleared the matter.There must be sufficient normal business's not to need this source of revenue . :-"
Ageing is a privilige denied to many .

the brother owns the restaurant, the teriyaki pork, deep fried wontons and noodle dishes are very good

the other brothers Thai dream of being a business owner went south with his bad choice, I tried to warn him early on, but he has that typical Thai stubborn hard head and what does a farang know?

my money is still in the bank and my pocket.............he said he was going "all in" and from what I know he had at least 30K in the pyramid......HAD

All in at 30k? Even a rice farmer can afford to lose more than that. Was he on the dole or something?

OT........... \:D/

Ive just googled this subject to see what else is out there etc.

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=uf ... investment

Surprise surprise , TV had a thread on it , slagging it off basically with one member pushing it etc

BUT it seems it was also on this forum on Nov 2, with 15 posts and 2 authors.

The link has been subsequently deleted by UM. so its not the first time UFUN has been on this forum. going back 5 months or so...

Net spreads wider over UFUN
http://www.nationmultimedia.com/nationa ... 58461.html
INVESTIGATION into allegedly fraudulent schemes linked to UFUN Co Ltd's purported branch UFUN Thailand will expand to cover another three or four related firms, as well as focus on 30 key suspects, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) told the police yesterday.

Meanwhile, assistant national police chief Pol Lt-General Suwira Songmetta said the damages could be as high as Bt38 billion worldwide and that 110 people had so far filed police complaints against the firm in Thailand. The Consumer Protection Police Division now has some 400 officers in charge of receiving complaints to prepare for the 45 or so more complainants that were expected to come forward later yesterday.

DSI deputy chief Pol Colonel Paisit Wongmuang said the three or four companies in question were linked to Malaysia-based U-Fun Store and that there were another 30 key suspects.

Pol Major Suriya Singhakamol, director of the DSI Bureau of Technology and Cyber Crimes, said the information provided to the police came from a technical investigation, the result of which matched the 20 suspects for whom arrest warrants have already been issued. He said these suspects have apparently changed their identities between three to five times, adding that the DSI probe would be conducted alongside that of the police.

Suriya said the DSI probe learned that U-Fun Store had allegedly set up three or four branches, which purportedly followed the same operating system down to using the U-Token currency for trading.

Suwira, who is leading the investigation, said police has handed over Bt200 million worth of assets seized, including Bt16 million in cash, to the Anti-Money Laundering Office for further investigation and possibly auction in order to compensate the victims.

He also called on the media to attend a press conference scheduled to be held in Malaysia by UFUN executives, ask questions and pass the information onto Thai police. He said police had also asked their counterparts in Malaysia to locate three Malaysian fugitives and check on the background of the fugitive identified as Arthit Pankaew, who was reportedly involved in fraud cases in both Malaysia and China.

In response to some UFUN Thailand members' call for justice and claims that the company is innocent, Suwira said police was proceeding according to law and had gathered evidence before six suspects in custody were arrested. He said that police would be able to submit the case to public prosecutors by next month.

Meanwhile, a check by Malaysian newspaper The Star shows that the UFUN office in Kuala Lumpur has been emptied, though there are many notices on its door. A building receptionist, who refused to be identified, said the office had been empty for more than six or seven months.

"We never see anybody there. Sometimes people come into the office to ask for UFUN, but it is always empty. Even the mailman cannot deliver packages to the office," she said.

The Star reported that UFUN Co Ltd's executive chairman Daniel Tay has denied allegations that his company was involved in fraudulent practices in all of its businesses and said he would cooperate with the Thai authorities and respect the law following the crackdown.

"We'll cooperate with the Thai government and provide necessary information needed to clarify that we are innocent," he said in a YouTube clip recently.

In the nine-minute video, Tay claimed: "The business will continue to grow and we will take care of those who have U-Tokens. We have no intention to cheat our members' hard-earned money. I advise our members in Thailand to calm down for the moment."

He said although UFUN Thailand's account has been frozen temporarily, the company assured that it would be paying its member's withdrawals.

"The company will not reject any withdrawals unless in special cases like technical problem, lack of information or manpower," he said.
