Thai YouTuber Nutty flees after allegedly scamming US$55 million from fans
A Thai YouTuber who reportedly defrauded thousands of fans out of over $55 million is in serious water.
Through largely dancing videos, Natthamon Khongchak, often known as "Nutty," has amassed a sizable following of over 847,000 viewers on YouTube.
Over 6,000 people reportedly donated Natthamon money to invest after being promised profits of up to 35% if they transferred through cash, according to local media reports.
It didn't proceed as planned, which surprised the audience. Natthamon announced on her Instagram page in May that she owes investors 1 billion baht ($27 million).

102 persons have complained to the authorities, claiming they lost $820,000.
