The former manager of the ‘Bears Den’ pub in Chiang Mai, was involved in the registration of companies to receive cash stolen from victims in Britain, Europe and Australia.
The Briton, now allegedly working for Canadian ‘Wolves’ in Chiang Mai, also made numerous trips to Manila from Bangkok to pick up cash and bring it back to Thailand without ever being checked at Immigration or Customs.
And it is that cash which it is alleged has been used to invest in property and Thailand’s lucrative tourist sex industry.
The allegations are made by a group of victims of boiler rooms who say they have lost over US$20 million between them.
In an internet post today they link the Briton, from Sutton Coldfield to American and British members of the ‘Bangkok Five’ – the top boiler room operators in Thailand.
The Briton received US$100,000 a month for his services to the boiler rooms and invested it in property in the Chiang Mai area.
The business was so lucrative that he gave up his day job organising such events as 'Ladies Lunch Clubs' in his bar.
Also named as bankers and money couriers are a Dutchman and an American.
The Chiang Mai Brit is also linked to British boiler room ‘staffer’ Bill Haines, a regular at Jameson’s pub in Pattaya, where he is known as the Foreign Secretary. Haines was recently arrested in Pattaya for possession of cocaine. He was later fined only 5000 Thai baht. It is understood he co-operated with authorities including Britain's National Crime Agency who may have obtained new lists of British victims.

Jameson's has always been keen to keep close links with the British Embassy (Its Union Jack waving website repeats the Embassy's sometimes dull press releases) and the BCCT. It is not suggested they know the secret occupations of their customers.
