Caption (main part): Female bank employee sacked

 

A 34 year old Bangkok Bank employee was sacked on the spot after claims that she stole millions of baht from a wealthy and well known customer. 

 

The employee denied embezzling money and plans to fight the matter in court. 

 

Earlier in the week Ekkaphat Atthithanatkun - better known as Hia Maa the owner of a well known restaurant in Samut Prakan - had gone to the police to say that 5 million baht had gone missing from his account that was locked. 

 

Sanook reported that Hia Maa had gone to hospital because of the stress of the case. 

 

Yesterday a senior official from Bangkok Bank's law department went to the Bang Poo police where Hia Maa was compensated in full plus interest. 

 

Documents were handed over to the police by the bank who claim that the 34 year old female employee siphoned off 2.5 million baht for herself. 

 

They said that they will actively pursue the criminal case to its conclusion and said that they had sacked her immediately.

 

Hia Maa said that he was satisfied with the bank's actions but it remains to be seen if he will continue to bank with them in the future. He was waiting to see what further action they took and what compensation they offered him.

 

Referring to his hospital visit he quipped:

 

"If they are only going to pay for that I would say don't bother. I have enough money for that."

Makes you wonder where the safest place is to keep ones money. In the bank, stock market or under the mattress?

good luck with that one ……  

At least you succeeded in getting all your stolen money back plus interest.

I will take a chance a say he is such a good customer of the bank, so that gives him a high percentage of success and negotiation power.

There are good reason to use the international banks here like UOB and Citibank, they all have branches in Thailand, if someone wants to store his money (partially) on a thai bank account.
