Kasikorn Bank: "No comment the manager is in a meeting" after customer goes to the police

Sanook reporters who contacted a Kasikorn Bank branch in Rayong to follow up on a case of alleged theft from a female customer's account by an employee of the bank were stonewalled.

 

The bank said: No comment - the manager is in a meeting.

 

Earlier Ms Khemthong, 30, had been shocked to discover that all 14,000.89 baht had been removed from an account she had had at a branch in Klaeng for years.

 

But there was much worse to follow.

 

She received a notice from the court that she had taken out a loan from the bank in the sum of 1.5 million baht four years ago. The loan was arranged at a branch in na Jomtien in the Pattaya area of Chonburi.

 

She said she had never taken out such a loan.

 

She contacted the bank who confirmed initially that her Thai ID and signature were on the loan documents. The bank said they had emptied her account in part payment for the loan.

 

She stuck to her guns and was then told by a regional office that an employee of the bank had fraudulently made the loan and they had subsequently been arrested.

 

She said she was not given any advice as to what to do next and fearing that she would be a scapegoat for illegal activity at the bank she decided to go to the police to report the matter.

 

The Paknam Prasae, Rayong, police took the report and promised to follow up with Kasikorn.

 

Reporters contacted the branch in Klaeng where they were told no comment.

 It seems a little odd that the bank apparently admit the loan was fraudulent, but took every satang she had legitimately in her account anyway. Good luck to her in getting it sorted out. Thai banks are not renowned for speed or openness in resolving such matters.

The money was taken out prior to loan being questioned

- not clear if it was repaid or not but appears it was as police report was to cover anything else that might come up.

At least that is my reading - non news news.

Banks in the region are not known for their security of accounts. In Cambodia there is a problem with fake US dollars in ATMs - yes, you heard me - ATMs. I consulted with a foreigner who knowns how ATMs operate (and how they are operated in the region) and he assured me that it was clearly an inside job. No one can insert fake $100 bills into the machine that others then take out.

Kasikorn Bank, I believe previously known as Thai Farmers Bank. is and always has been a bunch of schiesters ! For starters why would a bank change it’s name if not to bury a bad reputation ? Half emptied my bank account due to lack of usage, totally emptied a friend,s account for the same reason. Very poor form 😞

Perhaps because business names in English were charged a high fee?  That is the reason so few used English in the past, TAX.

Only 14k???
In Feb 2012 over 14.5 M vanished from my company's banking account at SCB.

Nothing was done. The only replies I got for several years is: "You not come to Thailand, it would not have happen" and Why transfer it to SCB account, if you did not have it transferred to the SCB account it would never have happened.... Lawyers here in Thailand breaking their head on it as they do it on no cure no pay base !!! Same answers for 9 years already !!!

Yet more evidence that , "Just put 800,000 in the bank and forget about it !" is very bad advice.
