    The same situation, I also receive an attached letter issued by:

    Mr.SupachaI Otampa
    Tel: 66950103504,
    email: enquiry@truemovecompany .it.pn,
    Chief Executive Officer
    True Move Network Company Thailand.

    I wonder why the big company in Thailand - True Corporation Public Company Limited - let this SCAM happened? Instead they should work with police in Thailand in order to protect their prestigiousness themselve? Or there is no law in Thailand?

    A very big company but can't do a small action for prevention of this SCAM, is it a big one?
    It's really necessary to protect their customer also. Will TRUEMOVE has their own actions? Hopefully.
