You think the staff at those banks are better? 

Does not matter because controls are better for sure, and compliance is working !

why not give the daughter some of the money anyway if she needed it.instead sue her and the bank for it back

Because no parent is obliged to give anything to their children other than proper care until they reach adulthood.

 

I'm sure given the wealth of the family (assuming), the daughter should've been given a good education.  It's unfortunate she was probably never taught to be independent...and self reliant.

This is a family matter, the daughter couldn’t wait for the big fortune.

Agreed... just makes you wonder what happened to 250 million baht... thats not loose change?

As for the retched daughter.... bang her up for years & years to rethink her loyalty to her mother!

Similar thing happened to a friend of mine in Laos except it was his wife and only $400,000. She convinced the bank manager that he said it was okay but didn't have time to go to the bank and fill in the proper documents. 

 

Something similar happened in Korea when I was there and I took part in it. I had a friend who was leaving due to severe alcoholism. We went into the bank, a couple of us carried/dragged him in while he held his bottle of soju.

 

The Korean tellers scattered leaving the new girl there alone. I put a pen in my friend's hand then held it while I scribbled something on a bunch of documents transferring 120K to Canada while he swigged soju. Then we left and the Koreans were just happy we were gone.

 

Man, no bank in the Western world would allow that. It was insane.

Isn't it every country who thinks they can prey and get from an ailing person like this woman? But I can say Thai are notorious for when someone dies or wins the lottery for coming out of the woodwork to get or take it as they know Thai laws are lax. Foreigners beware and prepare, it my happen to your family. 

I don't think it can get much lower than this.... Stealing from your own ailing mother... Corruption and the desire for money, overides everything else, in Thailand..

...... Well, as long as there was no ill intention... perfectly okay to steal! I think KB is off my list as possible banks to work with... but I certainly have no ill intention..

I had Kasikorn Bank when I first came here 14 yrs ago, but only for a very short time due to their unorganized way of doing things and non existent customer service.
Looks like I made  the correct decision.

I will go and close my accounts with Kasikorn today. Have you ever heard of „changing the withdrawal rules of Huay’s savings account from signing with a signature to fingerprint identification“? I mean, how medieval is that and knowing the Thais love for details and precision .........

Not, that I would have B 250 million to withdraw and my kids luckily make enough money on their own but you never know ........ the postman, the gasman, the water delivery boy, or beware, Somchai himself ..........

Ahh!  Family values, the much touted Thai family unit. Lovely daughter! 🙄

I thought it was part of Thai culture to always sent money to their mum/dad every month, doesn't matter how rich or poor they are. Wonder if the daughter has been sending mum a monthly allowance at all?

So according to this lame excuse anyone can march into a bank branch and clean out their close relative's bank account because they "wish to do so" and without bank staff demanding to see some legitimization?  

From what I understand, as long as you have the bank book .... no questions asked. Fortunately, I only lost 2m baht. I am thankful I didn't do direct deposit!

Some people wonder why many of us farangs do not want to use the seasoned money in a Thai bank for our visa extensions, at least using the income method you can only lose a small amount to these crooks that work in the banks. There was another bank employee charged the other day with theft from bank accounts but the banks will not refund any lost money. With the seasoned money it is easy for even the Thai government to take the money from your account to buy the new warships from Russia the same as the ones that visited Pattaya the other week.
