Police are stepping up their investigations after it was revealed about 40,000 people had lost at least 10 million baht as a result of unauthorised online transactions.

The commissioner of the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau (CCIB), Pol Lt Gen Kornchai Klaiklung, said the police are in talks with the Bank of Thailand and the Thai Bankers' Association to find a solution.

"Initial checks found around 40,000 people have lost their money through such transactions," Pol Lt Gen Kornchai said, before adding the majority of victims didn't realise their money were being withdrawn as the perpetrators generally charged small amounts -- albeit repeatedly.
