Facebook advert led to the arrest on Phuket of Anastasia Spirkina, 30

Facebook Poster Arrested for Offering Phuket Condo Cheap

Thursday, December 3, 2015
PHUKET: A woman arrested in a sting by Tourist Police over a Facebook post advertising a condo for sale on Phuket did not have a work permit.

Anastasia Spirkina, 30, a Russian, told officers that she was still on three months' trial with a Thalang property company.

The interest of Tourist Police was aroused by the owner of the condo, who saw the premises advertised on Facebook for a lower price than the one he was asking.

Suspicions aroused, he went to Tourist Police who organised a ''buyer'' who found the facebook property agent had no work permit.

She faces more questions about her activities.

Im sure she was quiet happy to undersell the property for less than its true worth to pocket her commission defrauding the owner in the process but apparently that's not a crime just a standard for dishonest estate agent practice to beat any honest opposition estate agents for the sale, No work permit is a good charge for starters followed by a few please explains.

From what I have read on the internet only Thai nationals can sell real estate from a agency to local residents in Thailand, which means a lot of people in the real estate industry are working without a work permit and could be fined and deported if caught by immigration, must be a lot of tea drunk in the real estate industry
