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 !!!

 

You didn't go to the police ? Even if you had to offer an incentive payment that would have been cheaper.

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.

An ATM will just dispense whatever its been loaded with, if there is a counterfeit bill in circulation it could end up anywhere in the banking system, in an ATM, handed out by a bank teller, given to a business for change or payroll.  If someone is putting fake notes into the system, and pocketing the real ones, an ATM would be the worst place to do it as the ATM would have sensors looking for metal security strips, notes are inspected prior as they need to be not damaged etc.

What would a bank employee have to gain putting fake notes in an ATM.

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 😞

Kasikorn = Farmer.

 

So changed from Thai farmer bank to just Farmer bank.

And they want us to trust them with 400,000 left in the bank year round, with no interest offered? And last month, the bank mafia in coordination with the immigration mafia, coordinated a new program that makes a retirement visa even more difficult. Now, you have to get dozens of letters from your bank, if you are using the income method. And it costs 6,200 annually from the bank, and takes a week!

 

Banks and insurance companies are mafia organizations, with a legitimate appearance.

The banks aren't always in the wrong and people can forget.

 

My wife was contacted by Kasikorn Bank 6 months ago to ask her what they should do with 5 Mill Baht that had been placed in a fixed term deposit. My wife told the bank representative that she must be mistaken as she couldn't remember making the deposit.

 

My wife (and I) had completely forgotten about the money and the account, although I did tell my wife that I was sure we had more money in our other account but we just thought that we'd spent it when we bought our condo and furniture. It was a pleasant surprise to know we had it tucked away elsewhere.

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

I always get slammed when I say I don't want to keep more money than I need for monthly expenses in a Thai bank.

'Safe as any bank in the US or UK' is a common answer.

I think not.

 

At least I don't have to worry about them taking out a loan in my name.

I think it's a good guess that Bangkok Bank has TONS of Farang accounts.  farangs generally don't have only 14000 and farangs are quick to panic.  I would never put 800k in an account here.  i think when i retire I'll only be in Thailand a few months a year, if at all.  no need to be here all year.  February to May I can find another place.  December, January...usually too busy.  So June to November.  cold in November.  So June to October.  Yea, you only need 200k in an account, max.

more like I've got multiple book banks and a SET account and forgot that 5 M had gone into a fixed term account a couple of years previously. We did buy a condo and fixtures and furniture during the time and just thought it was consumed or used on the SET. Simple error really.
