The recent political elections in Thailand were fraught with hope and change, as the Pheu Thai party’s prime ministerial candidate, Srettha Thavisin, emerged victorious. But it was no sooner than he won the Tuesday PM vote when a dishonorable group of tricksters decided to seize the opportunity for a con. They created a misleading app and swiftly placed it on Google’s Play Store, entrancing the Thai people with the lure of “registering for receiving digital transfers of 10,000 baht”.

During the heated political battlefield that was the recent election campaign, Srettha had promised his countrymen an economically uplifting initiative – he would transfer 10,000 baht into the digital wallets of all Thais aged 16 and above. The proposal, viewed as an ingenious economic stimulus measure, was designed to breathe life back into flagging local economies in Thailand.

However, this latest digital shenanigan seems to threaten those well-intentioned plans. Chaiwut, a key figure in the current Thai political landscape, revealed that the insidious app offering the supposed digital wallet is, in fact, a remote-controlled decoy. The creators behind this scheme have designed the app, he explained, to potentially seize control over the mobile phones of those unsuspecting individuals who download it. The dangerous implications mean that criminals could potentially gain access to mobile banking apps on individuals’ smartphones.

In light of these sinister revelations, Chaiwut has issued a stern warning to the Thai populace – refrain from downloading and installing the app. He elaborated on the unfeasibility of the digital transfer promise, stressing that Sretha, despite winning the elections, had not yet solidified his Cabinet and thus, had not received approval for the digital wallet policy.

Seemingly stepping up to the plate, Google has already been prompted to deter access to the harmful app. In Chaiwut’s words, he has engaged his ministry to request Google block accessibility to the deceitful app. A sense of duty and obligation to his countrymen resonates strongly in his decisive actions.

For Thais caught in the whirl of uncertainty and suspicion, Chaiwut offers a helpful solution. They can reach out to hotline 1111, dial extension 87 at any hour of the day, if they believe they are targets of misinformation or have fallen prey to fraud. This unyielding commitment and proactive stance serve as a beacon of hope for worried Thais, assuring them amidst these disconcerting digital undercurrents.
