A ladyboy psychic has been arrested after furious customers claim they were conned out of MILLIONS of pounds.
Arthittaya Saenyathmkhot, 34, is alleged to targeted elderly victims using the Line messaging app – including a woman living in the U.S.
The pensioner complained to police that she had been scammed out of 49million THB (1,128,859GBP) after using the medium’s services to learn more about Buddhism.
She told police that she was originally of Thai origin and struck up a relationship with the clairvoyant over the phone. The fortune teller could speak like a man, woman or children and would demand donations to different gods, she claimed.
Police tracked down two more victims who claim that racked up bills of 18,000,000THB (414,000GBP) and 800,000THHB (18,430GBP) but fear there could be more.
Arthittaya, who was born a man, was arrested at her large home in Kanchanaburi, central Thailand, and laughed as she was paraded in front of the public.
She is accused of targeting elderly and vulnerable people and demanding that they do ‘’good deeds’’ by sending huge donations that were then kept by herself.
Arthittaya denied the fraud charges and said she would fight in court to clear her name. She claimed that she was running a legitimate fortune telling business.
