What??

 

We cannot teach other faucets of the Government how to use correctly... What makes them think Bank Employees are any different??

I for one do not want my bio's open to the Public and this is what they are trying to enforce. Are they going to ensure that all users of this system have a High Security Level and are Bonded? This is trying to make Theft an undisclosed feature. Too many Bank Employees have been caught with their hands in Customers Tills (Accounts)

I wonder how many 800,000b accounts are going to get knocked? Immigration say... After doing a independent survey of your retirement account... Seems the correct funds are not on Deposit?? (Even when your bankbook shows no withdrawals...) Your Visa Extension is denied!

This is an excellent way to get retiree's to leave Thailand... Not requiring Passports and in person attendance... As required of all Thai Banks as a requirement from the United States Social Security System, to enable Banks to accept these fund deposits...

Cutting their own throat here on this one I am afraid....

One question . Why?

 

what is wrong with using thai ID cards or passports ?

ID cards & passports have been known to be fake .... Bio-metrics makes it more difficult to use fake identities.

I believe that it is a great idea. There is plenty of biometrics in use around the world with things like passports and visa applications to some countries. It has been proven many times that things like passports, ID cards, drivers licences can be easily copied and the persons identity stolen but it is impossible to copy any ones fingerprints or iris

And where exactly do they get the comparison data from? Secret Chinese spy databases? Or is it just the ID card database - you can do the biometrics by raising your eyes off the facebook on the mobile and looking who is in front of you.

In respect to privacy and security, the fact that Immigration collects biometrics gives me the chills.  Is there any reason to believe that Immigration has to competence to protect your data?  What other countries use biometric data to open an account?  There are so many big issues that Thailand is facing, this is just another distraction form what matters.
