SIX key members of the WealthEver company – which officials allege was an illegal Ponzi or pyramid scheme – met with police Saturday to say they were not involved in the “scam” that left thousands of Japan-bound tourists stranded at Suvarnabhumi Airport last Tuesday. 

Police have yet to press any charge against the six, as they are still gathering information. 

To date, 450 victims have filed complaints with police, Deputy National Police Chief Pol General Srivara Ransibrahmanakul said on Saturday. 

The victims were promised a cheap trip to Japan when they bought food supplement products from the firm. 

WealthEver executive Pasit Ariyalapat, known as “Shogun-sensei”, is in police custody after she was nabbed on Wednesday. 

Her lawyer Nithisak Meekhuad said he would talk with her on Tuesday about her legal defence and bail, as all her assets had been seized so they could not be used for bail collateral.
