Cybercrime blitz shuts thousands of websites

An ongoing government anti-cybercrime campaign has so far resulted in the suspension of over 50,000 fraudulent bank accounts and the shutting down of almost 2,000 gambling websites, deputy government spokeswoman Rachada Dhnadirek said yesterday.

Ms Rachada said government agencies such as the Royal Thai Police, the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (DES), the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission (NBTC), Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) and the Bank of Thailand are collaborating in the campaign, that began last year.

She said 58,463 fraudulent bank accounts had been suspended, and 1,830 gambling websites were taken down in 2022.

More than 118,530 phone numbers were suspended also for phishing text messages, she said.

Ms Rachada said Amlo had released a list of bank account fraud suspect names which should be closely monitored.
