The latest allegations of faked or flying property titles are being investigated by a second body, the Office of Public Sector Anti-Corruption, under Major General Dusadee Arayawuthi.
In one of the allegedly fake Phuket property titles now being investigated, a vice governor signed for final approval just last month. Normally, Phuket's Governor is the final signatory.
The investigation by the anti-corruption group comes in tandem with a broadening investigation of 14 Phuket properties that remains underway, with luxury brands Istana Phuket and Malaiwana added to the list at the weekend by the the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation.
In August, six powerful government organisations - including anti-corruption groups and the Department of Special Investigation - pledged on Phuket to form a grand alliance to end public land theft and promote a new generation of right-minded officials.
A former Phuket vice governor and a former Interior Ministry permanent secretary are being investigated, and the National Anti-Corruption Commission and the the Department of Special Investigation have been alerted because of their wider powers.
Today's fresh investigations will do nothing to still rising concern that consumer confidence in the Phuket property industry is likely to suffer.
In an investigation of 57 rai behind a high wall at the rear of Phuket's Lock Palm golf course in central Phuket, PACC officials are investigating how a Sor Kor agricultural title became a fully-fledged property title. Red Mountain golf course is further uphill.
The application to upgrade the title - to start a tin mine - came on June 1 this year and was signed off by a Phuket vice governor on August 23.
A second investigation involves land along the coast road between Patong and Kamala, near the landmark IndoChine resort.
An ''agricultural purposes'' title originally issued for a tract of land near Patong's Suwankiriwong Temple - at the Nanai entrance to Patong - is believed to have been ''lost'' then reissued at the request of two brokers by land title officials in Patong.
A resort is now under construction on the extremely steep seaside property opposite Kalima, on the coast road where property prices are among the most expensive on Phuket.
The original ''agricultural purposes'' area of four rai near Patong temple has grown to 24 rai - on both sides of the coast road, where terracing is now underway, say investigators.
Initial results of the first 12 investigations by the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation are due for release tomorrow. All border Sirinath National Park and involve alleged encroachment.
The director of that department, Damrong ''The Demolisher'' Pidech, retires at the end of this month. At the same time, Major General Dusadee is being transferred to a new posting.
A national anti-corruption hotline is now in operation. If you have allegations, call 1206.
