Police ask CSD to take action against a tailor’s shop for alleged cheating

A police officer has lodged a complaint with the Crime Suppression Division against a tailor’s shop, accusing it of cheating him and some 6,000 police officers of about 5 million baht worth of police uniforms they have ordered to be made.

Pol Maj Wutthipong Tangmahakitsiri, an inspector attached to the Police Welfare Division, said a former classmate who has a tailor’s shop inside an army camp in Kanchanaburi had offered to make police uniforms at affordable price so he persuaded his colleagues and the others to place orders with the shop.

Some 6,000 policemen placed the orders and each of them paid 1,500 baht as advance payments for a set of uniforms.

However, Pol Maj Wutthipong said only 500 sets were delivered during January-March and many of the police who have received the uniforms complained of their poor quality while the remaining uniforms are yet to be delivered.

Feeling that they were cheated, they decided to take the case to the attention of the CSD police.
