The Police are hunting for a 32-year-old woman Jariyaporn “Nammon” Buayai who married at least twelve men over the past six years and fled with the dowry cash each time. The dowry range from THB200,000 to THB500,000 (about US$6,000-US$15,000) per wedding.
One of the victims, Prasarn Tiamyam, 32, filed a report at the Crime Suppression Division in Monday against “ex-wife” Jariyaporn “Nammon” Buayai, who allegedly cheated him of a THB200,000 dowry four days after their wedding at a seaside resort in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.
Following a viral post on social media that warned Thai men to look out for the dowry scanner and marriage con artist, Prasarn, who is now remarried, came forward to the police after finding out his past marriage was a lie.
Speaking to the press, Prasan said that he got to know Nammon when she added him on Facebook in February of 2015. After only nine months, he agreed to marry her because she said she was pregnant.
During their relationship, Prasarn said that Nammon refused to let him meet her parents. Only four days after their wedding, Nammon told him that she had to deal with their fruit business in Nong Khai province and left.
Soon after, Prasarn could no longer contact her. Instead, he received a call from a woman who claimed to be Nammon’s niece. She told him that Nammon lost the baby and Prasarn should not contact her again.
Prasarn only realized he had been duped when Nammon’s story was posted on social media recently.
Meanwhile, another man, who declined to be named, told Laid-off told that he also met Nammon on Facebook and was allegedly cheated of THB500,000 in dowry in February of this year. After he transferred the money to her bank account, Nammon simply said it wasn’t a good time for her to be married because of a “bad horoscope.”
Citing another victim, only identified as “Wichit,” Morning News reported that this groom has been in touch with seven other men who were duped by this woman.
Wichit said their stories are similar. Nammon added all of them on Facebook, had sex with them right away after their meet-up, and lied about being pregnant.
According to an August 30 viral Facebook post, about Nammon, she got married approximately once a week in August, to five different men.
On Monday, police in the northern Leoi prince visited the house of Nammon’s parents in Wang Sapung district, only to find out her parents also fled.
The police only found Nammon’s older sister, who said she has already cut ties with Nammon because her little sister never returned THB10,000 (about USD300) that she borrowed.
The older sister, who was not named, pled via media for Nammon to turn herself in, adding that she was very worried about their parents.
On Tuesday, celebrity lawyer Songkran Achariyasap led seven of the 12 victims of runaway bride to file a police complaint at the Crime Suppression Division. Each victim lost money and assets, ranging from THB50,000 to THB1.2 million, Bangkok Biz News reported. (7 of the victims pictured)
The story of Jariyaporn, also referred to by nicknames including “Nammon” and “Porn,” has just gotten more intense. It was discovered she started marrying men for dowries in 2011, with weddings were held all over Thailand, from Yasothon to Udon Thani, Pathum Thani ??? Prachuap Khiri Khan. At all weddings, her parents also attended, seemingly endorsing her deceit.
Songkran said that all victims’ stories were similar. It all started with Facebook chats that led to real dates. Then Jariyaporn asked the men to invest in her fruit business and marry her. But a few days after the wedding, she would tell the man that she needs to go away to deal with the fruit business and disappear.
One of the victims, Pirat Puengsuk, 28, lost THB180,000 in dowry money and a Toyota pickup truck. The financial cost of the damage totaled THB1.2 million.
Pirat said he got to know Jariyaporn in April of this year on Facebook. After just two months, he decided to marry her and paid THB180,000 in dowry.
Pirat said he admired Jariyaporn because she always sent photos of herself working in the fruit business. Therefore, he quickly decided to quit his job as a transport driver to work with her and build their future together.
“She demanded that I marry her before investing in the business together because it was her family’s tradition. If we weren’t married, we couldn’t do business together,” said Pirat.
Pirat said he trusted her with all his heart, but just one day after the wedding, she borrowed his truck to pick up fruit in another province and disappeared with the vehicle.
“I’m so hurt by what happened. I want her to redeem herself and not do this to other people,” he said.
