    Swedish Man Arrested for Exchanging Counterfeit Money in Patong

    A Swedish man was arrested after he allegedly exchanged counterfeit Euro currency in Patong.


    The Patong Police told the Phuket Express that on Monday (February 26th) at 1:40 P.M. they were notified by a staffer at an exchange booth in Soi Saen Sabai on the Phang Mueang Sai Gor Road that a man was trying to exchange counterfeit money. They rushed to the exchange booth and found a Swedish man still there.

    The staffer told police that the Swedish man had tried to use counterfeit Euro currency to exchange for Thai Baht. The Swedish man was taken to the Patong Police Station legal action.


    The man was not identified and did not release a statement to the media.

    Odd as they don't use Euro in Sweden, its their crown.

    Either been on the laser printer or perhaps given it unknowingly in change at a message parlour?

    It seemed like a good idea at the time, when he had his Ulrika moment.

    Thought you'd like that one.

    Cyrille, not so much.

    Hopefully he's got plenty of the real stuff in another pocket to contribute to Mr Plod's Songkran funds.

    I read an article elsewhere about him landing in Phuket and purchasing it off someone for Shitcoin (knowing it was counterfeit).
    Don't know if they've caught the bloke he bought it off, assuming that's true.
