Knight Frank Brokerage Victim of Internet Hoax
An email which has been circulating throughout the island which said international property firm Knight Frank was shutting down their Phuket office due to financial reasons is an apparent hoax.
We spoke to respected KF Managing Director Phanom Kanjanathiemthao at their head office in Bangkok who said a series of malicious emails sent through Yahoo and Hotmail accounts which had his name attached were fraudulent.
He reiterated that the firm has no plans to discontinue operations on the island and is taking a long term view of real estate here as a solid business proposition.
Identity theft and rising internet business sabotage are unfortunately on the rise and for many the message is clear, to always check the facts.
