She had purportedly claimed to be a successful Forex trader, and used her popularity online to lure victims after promising them high monetary returns in a short time in Forex trading, according to Phaisal Ruangrit, a lawyer who is campaigning to help the victims.

Phaisal said that one of the victims had deposited 18 million baht with the woman.

About 30 people were led by the lawyer to file complaints against Natthamon on 24 August, with the Economic Crime Suppression Division, for her alleged Forex scam.

Natthamon’s YouTube channel Nutty’s Diary, has more than 800,000 subscribers but at the time of writing, her last upload was about 5 months ago.

She had invited her victims to deposit money in her account after promising returns of 25% for 3-month contracts, 30% for a 6-month contract and 35% for a 12-month contract, where she pledged to pay them their returns every month.

Her victims then started complaining in April after she failed to give them their “returns” as promised, and she posted on her Instagram earlier this year on 25 May that she “made a mistake” in the Forex trading and lost all the money, but “promised” to pay them back.

She later announced on 24 June that she was being sued and that if she was to go to jail for her Forex scam, she won’t be able to pay the other investors.

Facebook page Drama-addict then posted on 28 August that Natthamon had fled the country, with one of her victims offering a reward of 1 million baht for information that would lead to Natthamon being caught for her Forex scam.

They added that she had allegedly fled to Malaysia and is in hiding there.
